Power Rangers photo

Bryan Cranston cast as Zordon for the Power Rangers reboot

About a month back I wrote a long editorial about Saban and Lionsgate's upcoming Power Rangers reboot. Until I had seen the costumes, I was pretty much all in for the film. It was making good moves otherwise. The team is comprised of relati...

 
 
Moana Trailer photo

Here's the first trailer for Disney's Moana

Disney's animation studio has been on a Pixar like roll lately with Frozen, Big Hero 6, and Zootopia netting huge critical and financial success. Their newest princess film Moana already blows those films out of the water.  This teaser...

 
 
The Conjuring 2 Review photo

Review: The Conjuring 2

The Conjuring became quite the hidden gem when it was released three years ago. A nostalgic return to classic horror haunting roots, it breathed new life into the genre by shifting the focus to paranormal hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren...

 
 
Angry Birds Review photo

Review: The Angry Birds Movie

With videogame adaptations becoming more common, it was only a matter of time before we would end up in this situation. A videogame popular for its gameplay and mechanics rather than its story would get the big screen treatment as is the ca...

 
 
Neighbors 2 Review photo

Review: Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

In my long tenure here at Flixist I've carved out a niche for myself. If you see a review for a Seth Rogen film or a sequel to a comedy, chances are it's my words you're reading. So little did I know I'd stick around here long enough for th...

Transformers 5 gets an official title and teaser image

Because the Transformers films still make more money than the GDP of many small countries put together (and with Age of Extinction holding strong as China's biggest box office opening ever). work on the next film in the franchise is speedin...

 
 
Tetris Trilogy photo

Tetris is getting a big budget, Chinese trilogy

This year we have four videogame adaptations hitting theaters and there's no sign of stopping anytime soon. The only problem with this is none of these films look particularly gripping with Warcraft, Assassin's Creed, and The Angry Bir...

 
 
Voltron Trailer photo

Here's a trailer for Netflix's Voltron: Legendary Defender

Adding to the mass of nostalgia, and to Netflix's ever growing original programming, is Voltron: Legendary Defender. Studios have been trying to figure out what to do with Voltron for years with a movie in mind and a failed Nickelodeon show...

 
 
Black Panther  photo

Lupita Nyong'o and Michael B. Jordan join Black Panther

Captain America: Civil War may have technically been Captain America's movie, but the shining stars were definitely Spider-Man and Black Panther. In fact, I'm more excited for Black Panther's solo outing than anything else in their line up....

 
 
Assassin's Creed Trailer photo

First Assassin's Creed trailer parkours into my heart

I guess Jimmy Kimmel Live is the place to go for trailer premieres since the first trailer for Assassin's Creed hit last night. Regardless, I've been interested in this for a while. Based on Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed videogame series, Mich...

 
 
MMPR Reboot photo

Power Rangers, reboots, and you

I f**king love Power Rangers. When I say love, I mean I've been following the show for twenty-two years. Every awkward season, every bad theme song (Operation Overdrive has a rap, if you were wondering which one was the worst), every castin...

 
 
Inferno Trailer photo

First trailer for Ron Howard's Inferno teases more clues

Look, I have to be honest. I hated Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. It's dumb, only has like two good ideas, and it made so much money there had to be a film adaptation of it and its two sequels eventually. Since the first two films in the se...

 
 
Rebirth Tribeca Review photo

Tribeca Review: Rebirth

Festivals are a great time to try out films you would never consider in your personal time. Like a Netflix queue, the options are endless and each film only has a short premise and cast listing to get our attention. Since my scheduled per...

 
 
Nerdland Tribeca Review photo

Tribeca Review: Nerdland

Nerdland was the first film to stand out to me when I first signed on to cover the Tribeca Film Festival this year. Everything about it appealed to me. It's the first full length feature from Titmouse, an animated company most associated wi...

 
 
Green Room Review photo

Review: Green Room

Over the last few years, A24 has quickly become my favorite production studio. They've overseen everything from huge award winners like Room, Amy, and Ex Machina, critical darlings such as Spring Breakers and The End of the Tour, and some o...

 
 
Apocalypse Trailer photo

Final X-Men: Apocalypse trailer features a very special guest

If you were somehow not convinced to see X-Men: Apocalypse, you sure will be after the final trailer for it. We get a little more footage than we have in the past, some cool looking fight scenes, a little bit of information for fans (and it...

 
 
Stories Capsule Review photo

Tribeca Capsule Review: Abortion: Stories Women Tell

Although it's been technically legal ever since the famous Roe v. Wade legal battle in the 60s and 70s, states across America still do as much as they can to limit healthcare, and by extension abortion, to the nation's women. There are stat...

 
 
Holidays Tribeca Review photo

Tribeca Review: Holidays

Horror anthologies are all the rage now. Get a couple of creatives together, pick a theme, and they're allowed to explore one of the smaller ideas they have in their heads. At best, you're in for a good time overall, at worst, each of the s...

 
 
Tribeca Murder Review photo

Tribeca Review: A Kind of Murder

Patrick Wilson just can't catch a break. No matter how hard he tries, he has yet to break through into credible leading man territory. He's been wading in the shallow ends of roles landing somewhere between genre film and B movie territory....

 
 
Winter's War Review photo

Review: The Huntsman: Winter's War

Despite Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Saunders being pulled from the series after allegations of an affair, bumping up visual effects supervisor Cedric Nicolas-Troyan to debut as director, and the first film getting poor reviews,...

 
 
 
Power Rangers photo

Here's the first image of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa

I've gone back and forth over Lionsgate's upcoming Power Rangers movie too many times to count now. Everyone has specific fandoms they know too much about and one of mine happens to be the Power Rangers. So for the first time I totally care...

Sony's Spider-Man reboot gets an official title

Ever since Sony and Marvel announced their unprecedented deal to have joint custody of Spider-Man films, and after we all got a first taste of him with the latest Captain America: Civil War trailer, we've all turned our attention to what So...

 
 
Doctor Strange Trailer photo

Here's the first supreme teaser for Marvel's Doctor Strange

Since we're finally past all of Marvel's big moves like The Avengers and Captain America: Civil War, we're finally entering Marvel's weirder titles. It's also coincidentally the material I know the least about. All I know about Doctor Stran...

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them gets a full trailer

We're currently in the midst of a new wave of Harry Potter mania. With its Universal Studios park finally opening, J.K Rowling releasing a written version of the newest stage play (which is book eight for all intents and purposes), and now ...

Review: Hardcore Henry

From its inception as music videos for director Ilya Naishuller's band Biting Elbows, Hardcore Henry boasted an unique central idea: crafting a well told action film entirely through the first person perspective on Go Pro cameras. Its many ...

 
 
Huntsman Trailer photo

Latest Huntsman: Winter's War trailer is absolutely nuts

To be honest, Flixist has been sleeping on Huntsman: Winter's War. It's not hard to doubt the film given its shaky past and mediocre first outing. When a sequel was announced with everyone but Kristen Stewart attached, I had no idea what to...

Who's the best on screen Superman?

With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice just a few days away and fulfills a dream I've had since I was a kid, I figured it was a good time to celebrate Superman's long history on film. But just simply recounting actors that have taken it on...

You can preorder your Assassin's Creed movie ticket for $1200

If you're familiar with the Assassin's Creed videogames, then the notion of preorder bonuses or super expensive special editions is nothing new to you. While theater chains have folks preorder tickets all the time, what 20th Century Fox, Ub...

Here's the Power Rangers movie cast without their suits

It may seem silly now (and feel free to refer back to this post when this all blows up in my face), but it seems like the Power Rangers movie is my most anticipated film of 2017. It's a property I have a huge connection with (second only to...

Review: The Boy and the Beast

Mamoru Hosoda is behind some of my favorite animated films: Summer Wars, Wolf Children, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, and even The Digimon Movie. His direction always brings what's best about the animation medium to the forefront. You ca...

First Ghostbusters trailer doesn't know who to call

I've been going back and forth with Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot each time we get a new look at the film. On the one hand, it's a new Ghostbusters so it'll at least be entertaining (and coupled with the fact they're a group of women bump...
