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: 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...

In defense of jump scares in movies

There's nothing worse than a horror movie that isn't scary. When the entire purpose of your movie is to scare people and you fail to do that, then it's hard to deny that the movie completely failed at its job. There can be a lot of reason w...

Teen Titans will fight Teen Titans Go! next year

Growing up in the early 2000's, Teen Titans was my jam. I distinctly remember watching it on Toonami on Saturday nights right alongside classics like Yu Yu Hakusho and Megas XLR. The action, plotlines, and comedy w...

Review: Castlevania (Season 2)

(Note: This is a spoiler-free review of the first six episodes of Castlevania Season 2, however there will be spoilers for Season 1) The first season of Castlevania was a surprise that I'm not sure many people were expec...

RIP FuniRoll; Crunchyroll and Funimation split

Today is a sad day for anime fans. For the past two years, Funimation and Crunchyroll have had a partnership where they would share the streaming rights for their various anime titles, but that partnership has come to an end. As of November...

Review: First Man

Another year, another epic sci-fi movie that rolls into theatres to rake up award nominations. Since 2013, there's been a trend to release at least one big sci-fi movie that either focuses on scientifically accurate space adventures or a hi...

Everything from NYCC, cosplay, and Bowsette

After a few days of recovery, it's time to wrap up our coverage of New York Comic-Con. Between all of the running around most of us did from the Javitz Center to Madison Square Garden for the big panels, the Flixist crew is pretty damned ti...

NYCC: She-Ra mixes Lord of the Rings with Steven Universe

Looking back at most of the best kids shows from the 80's, I think it's safe to say that people don't remember them for their in-depth stories. They had eye-catching premises and some enjoyable characters (looking at you Starscream), ...

Ranking Sony's Spider-Man movies

If you're a fan of Spider-Man, it's been a pretty eventful year for you. There was the excellent Spider-Man on PS4, Dan Slott concluded his decade-long run for the character in comics, there's an upcoming animated Spider-Man ...

Review: Assassination Nation

I'm not going to lie about Assassination Nation. The content in this movie is, frankly, uncomfortable to sit through. The movie begins by showing trigger warnings of all of the horrible things that happen over the course movie and tell...

See an empty locker room in this Space Jam 2 teaser!

Growing up in the late 90's, I loved Space Jam. I remember watching that movie every single week with my friends and loving it from beginning to end. I wasn't even a fan of basketball but I just loved watching the Looney Toons be themselves...

The DC Extended Universe needs to die

I remember back in 2013 when Man of Steel came out. It was meant to be the big return of the Blue Boyscout to theatres after 2006's groan-worthy Superman Returns. After its release, people were split on whether or not Ma...

Comedies today are a tragedy

Last month, The Happytime Murders opened to a pretty tepid response, both critically and financially. Having a budget of $40 million, not including advertising, so far the movie has only made half of that back and it's been out fo...

The Academy nixes Best Popular Film from this year's Oscars

Earlier in the summer, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced a few changes to their Oscar broadcast. Most of the details were pretty nebulous, but the one that got most critics and fans in a tizzy was that the ...

Sharknado isn't so bad it's good; it's just bad

When I pitched to Flixist's Supreme Overlord Matt a Sharknado Retrospective, I had a pretty clear-cut goal in mind. I wanted to look at all six movies in the franchise, with the most recent one being last month's The Last Sha...

Review: Preacher Season 3

Preacher has always been a show where the quality varies wildly from season to season. Season 1 was overall very good but felt like it was trying too hard to distinguish itself from its source material, which caused the characters to s...

Netflix brings on Alex Hirsch to make exclusive content

Netflix has been unstoppable when it comes to securing a strong presence in the animation industry. They already have fantastic shows like Bojack Horseman, Trollhunters, Voltron, and Castlevania, and that's not even ment...

Review: The Last Sharknado: It's About Time

Back in 2013, my family and I sat down to watch a movie that all of my friends were going nuts over online, calling it one of the dumbest movies of all time. It became a media sensation on Twitter, had multiple showings on the Syfy Channel,...

Let's fight to the death over the best lamps in film!

The writers at Flixist have come together for a competition. Back in July, we all began a heated debate about something near and dear to all of our hearts. The argument was intense, causing gallons of blood to be spilt and several eyes to b...

Review: Slender Man

Slender Man hasn't been relevant in internet culture for years. Remember how back in 2012 Slender Man was all of the rage? Youtubers were going nuts over Slender: The Eight Pages, there were a bunch of fan games, an...
