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...

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...

Review: The Umbrella Academy

Imagine this: one day, you’re a person who’s totally not pregnant, not even a drop, minding your own biz-ness, enjoying some beach weather, and then, wham-o, the next and you’re full-term about to burst, like Jesus or...

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...

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...

Oscar Isaac in talks to join Denis Villenueve's 'Dune'

Ever since Denis Villeneuve announced that he would be directing a Dune movie, I've been excited to see how the film would materialize. Despite the legendary status of Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel, there's only been a few stabs at t...

Netflix releases first full The Umbrella Academy trailer

If 43 women becoming pregnant and spontaneously giving birth in the course of one day doesn't get your attention, I'm not sure what will. Back at the New York Comic Con in October, Netflix delivered a teaser for The Umbrella Academy th...

Review: If Beale Street Could Talk

It's an incredibly sad reality to accept that racism is still prevalent in 2019. While we've come a long way from the 20th century and things like the "3/5ths Compromise" or "Jim Crow Laws," this nation still treats minorities with prejudic...

Doooomed! DC's Doom Patrol series gets a premiere date

Ah, the holidays. A time for cozying up by the fireplace (if you have a fireplace, use it for me; I'm always cold), sipping some cocoa, and reading some comics. Or, you could cozy up and anticipate all those screen adaptations of your favo...

Review: Mortal Engines

Post-apocalyptic films have enjoyed a long run, and apparently, that’s not changing anytime soon. We humans are concerned about the future; what’s it going to be like? Will cars fly? Will my Nike’s self-lace? Will people b...

Praise Humperdoo! Preacher returns for a fourth season

With all of the recent cancellations of beloved comic book TV shows, I was worried as hell about the fate of AMC's Preacher. To say that Preacher is a bizarre show would be doing it an injustice. Last season alone includ...

Lee Childs say Jack Reacher is becoming a streaming TV series

I thoroughly enjoyed both Jack Reacher movies for the 90s throwback action that they were. Low on budget, but not on determination, the movies cast Cruise in the arrogant superman he plays best and basically just let him kick butt the entir...

I forgot that Alita: Battle Angel still exists

It's weird that I keep on forgetting about Alita: Battle Angel. At the beginning of the year, I couldn't wait to get the chance to see this movie for a whole host of reasons. Not only has it been a passion project for James Cameron an...

Review: The Grinch

Believe it or not, prior to my screening I wasn't paying that much attention to Illumination's The Grinch, but from what I did see I thought the film was going to try something a little new with the character and focus on how he became...

The big difference between the Mean Girls movie and musical

While in NYC covering NYCC I decided to check out Mean Girls on Broadway at the iconic August Wilson theater. When I first heard it was coming I was pumped to check it out.  Also since Tina Fey was involved with it, she truly showed sh...

David Leitch signs on to direct The Division movie

We're getting closer, everyone. Rampage threatened to be mildly entertaining, and that means we're just a few steps away from an actually good video game movie. It's gonna happen, and maybe it'll be The Division that doe...
