Review: Shazam!

Shazam, or Captain Marvel if you're a classic DC fan like myself, is a hero that doesn't get as much of the spotlight as he deserves. The character is celebrating his 80th birthday this year and there was a point in time that he was more po...

Okay, let's get this out of the way right now so we can actually have a serious discussion about Spring Breakers. Spring Breakers is full of... Asses. Big ol' bums. Badunkadunks. Apple bottoms. Backpacks. Booty booty booty booty r...

Take a look at Joker in all of his black and white glory

Very little has been said about DC's upcoming Joker movie, which has now officially been titled Joker. The project was announced without much fanfare and so far the only things that we know about it are that Joaquin Phoenix is going to...

Get ready for seven more years of Sony/Marvel content

For the longest time, it was easy to mock all of Sony's Marvel movies. The Amazing Spider-Man movies were passable at best and excessively bloated at worst. But after last year, Sony has been riding high with their Marvel adaptations. While...

Review: Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn

I'm going to level with you all; Made in Abyss is one of my favorite anime series. After I first saw it in the summer of 2017, I knew that I was in love with it. Despite being thrown into Amazon's short-lived and poorly executed anime block...

One Punch Man returns April 9th exclusively to Hulu

With the recent surge of anime titles streaming from Japan, a lot of quality shows tend to get left by the wayside unless they're mega-popular, multi-million dollar franchises. That isn't to say that shows like My Hero Academia or Attack on...

Latest Shazam! trailer shows Billy Batson as a real superhero

Can I just say how surprised I am that Shazam! actually looks like a great movie? I'm not even saying this like I'm giving the DCEU some kind of curve where even a passable DCEU is considered good, Shazam! actually looks like a fun and uni...

Holmes & Watson lose big at the Razzies

You know awards season is winding down when it's time for the annual beat up on the popular bad movies awards show, also known as the Razzies. It's not that I'm against the Razzies, since making fun of bad movies is always such a fun experi...

The Angry Birds Movie 2's first trailer takes flight

Can you believe that there was a time that Angry Birds was the hottest game in the world? When the mobile scene was still fresh and young and wasn't overcome by microtransations and pay-to-win mechanics, Angry Birds was the first real hit ...

Review: Norm of the North: Keys to the Kingdom

Why? Why why why? Why? Why why why why? WHY? Why are we here? Why do we live in the universe that not only gave us the original Norm of the North, a film so terrible that for a time it had a perfect zero on Rotten Tomatoes, but punished us ...

Review: Alita: Battle Angel

You wouldn't guess by looking at it, but the production behind Alita: Battle Angel is the stuff of legends. Robert Rodriguez may be in the director's chair, but this movie has been James Cameron's baby for nearly two decades. Cameron has be...

This year's Academy Awards will be a complete disaster

I love to hate the Oscars, but I also hate that I love them.  For the past several years I've had a tradition where I try to see as many Oscar Best Picture nominees as I can. I want to see which movies were considered the best of their...

The Favourite takes home seven awards at the BAFTAs

While not quite as popular as the Golden Globe or the Academy Awards, the British Academy of Film and Television Awards, also called the BAFTAs, are usually an entertaining show that honors the best movies of the previous year, though with ...

The art of animation is something truly spectacular. Through dedication and passion, any artist can create a world of limitless possibilities through a variety of techniques and art styles. While it's very easy to honor the big budget anima...

FX CEO John Landgraf calls bull on Netflix's numbers

This may be an unpopular opinion to some, but I really dislike Netflix. I don't hate the streaming giant, since it does give me a healthy amount of shows that I do like, but I find their business model and secrecy infuriating. Netflix ...

Made In Abyss: Journey's Dawn to be released March 2019

A personal vow that I made in 2019 was to not only cover more anime projects on Flixist, but just to watch more anime in general. While I wouldn't say that 2018 was a bad year for anime, it was a year where I barely saw any new shows and th...

Birds of Prey gets its first Hot Topic infused teaser

The current state of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) seems to be in a state of flux. With the critical and commercial failures of Batman v. Superman and Justice League, compared to the extremely lucrative solo films like Aquaman and Wonder...

Ryan Reynolds teases a new direction for Deadpool 3

I've never been a huge fan of the Deadpool movies. I don't think that they're inherently bad, both of them are actually pretty okay, but I'm just sick and tired of Deadpool as a character. The snarky, fourth-wall breaking routine has run it...

Hannibal Season 4 isn't dead yet, still being shopped around

Remember Hannibal? The cult classic show that NBC sent out to die repeatedly but just wouldn't? The one that was canceled well before its time? The one that took a graveyard shift timeslot to kill? My favorite TV show of all time? Well...

Review: Dragon Ball Super: Broly

I don't think I'm being hyperbolic when I say that Dragon Ball Z is one of the most important anime to ever exist. For many, Dragon Ball Z was how we became diehard anime fans in the first place. I remember watching Toonami as a kid and bei...

Sony Screen Gems to make a Just Dance movie

I don't think it needed mentioning, but video game film adaptations are usually never good. The hurdle that video game movies always run into is that they try to adapt several dozen hours of gameplay and narrative into a two-hour time frame...

Jesse's top five favorite movies of 2018

2018 was one hell of a year for me. By the time this list gets posted, it'll be officially one year since I was asked to join the Flixist team! In that year I've been to film festivals, NYCC, seen some putrid, horrifying, no-good, vile, and...

Flixist's worst reviewed movies of 2018

2018 may have had some truly phenomenal movies, but never forget that every year has its share of garbage. 2018 may not have had the smelliest garbage, but trash is trash no matter how you slice it. Thankfully audiences seemed to wise up th...

The story of Skate Jam, the failed follow-up to Space Jam

Review: Vice

I always find it amusing when people criticize actors and Hollywood in general for talking about politics and when people say that actors should stay out of politics because their job is to entertain audiences, not preach to them about poli...
