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...

See Creed II early and free

I'm not sure what to think about Creed II. Is it going to be the dramatic and stunningly good drama that Creed was or are we going full Rocky III here and just turning the franchise into boxing ridiculousness. It's hard to tell, a...

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Season 13

After a decade of airing, it takes a very special combination of acting, writing and comedic timing to keep a sitcom going. For most of these shows, there seems to be a specific season you can point to where the quality went on a downward t...

Review: They Shall Not Grow Old

Coinciding with the centenary of the Great War, I think it’s safe to say that this documentary is a once in a lifetime achievement, and Peter Jackson does not disappoint. The result of hundreds of hours of research in conjunction wi...

New Captive State trailer warns of us of their lies

One of the longest traditions of science fiction is its incredible ability to address social issues and concepts without directly being about the specific social issues of the day. Captive State is very clearly a science fiction ...

Review: The Long Dumb Road

I've always loved the road trip genre of film, it's such a nice metaphor for character growth and there are usually some very scenic second unit shots that fulfill my wanderlust. There is comfort in these films as they usually all follow th...

Review: Overlord

For the longest time, I didn't think that Overlord would release. Not because it was in production hell or anything like that, but because it was a part of J. J. Abrams Cloverfield universe and those movies can be announ...

Review: The Girl in the Spider's Web

Lisbeth Salander should not be a superheroine. While the character is resourceful and strong, physically, mentally, and morally, The Girl in the Spider's Web turned her into some sort of action movie secret agent-type. As satisfying as...

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...

Taron "Eggsy"erton won't appear in third Kingsman film

I've only briefly touched upon my utter adoration for Taron Egerton (and Ansel Elgort) when I reviewed Billionaire Boy's Club, but please dear reader do not mistake: I have the biggest man crush on this beautiful Welshman. He knocked his pe...

See Overlord early and free

Overlord looks schlocky, gruesome, terrible and wonderful. I'm guessing for a sleeper hit on this one with probably some sort of twist on the Nazi/Zombie sub-genre you weren't expecting. Then again maybe not. Maybe it will just be a straigh...

We've reached peak reality TV with Shaq and Ken Jeong

Last spring, NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal took on actor Ken Jeong in a rap battle of mismatched proportions. Shaq isn't shy on a mic by any means, and Jeong got a few good licks on the big man, including a dig on Kazaam. Now, aft...

Paddington 3 in the works and you all better go see it

At Flixist we don't cover kids movies with that much regularity. With that in mind, you're probably wondering why I've chosen to publish a story about a possible third film in the Paddington series coming out as, at face value, th...

See Widows early and free

Widows looks like something we don't get all that often: a clever and original crime film, replete with strong performances and an actually compelling story. It's definitely caught my attention after it stormed out of festivals with great r...

Review: The Other Side of the Wind

Orson Welles’ final film, The Other Side of the Wind, was shot from 1970-1976, but it wasn’t fully assembled until this year. The film released by Netflix today is an imperfect salvage job. Welles only finished editing about 40-...

Ridley Scott is currently working on a sequel to Gladiator

Gladiator was one of those seminal films that if you were the right age and saw it at the right time has stuck in your mind since then. I was both at the right and at the right time so the movie for me is one of my favorites from direc...
