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...

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 may know the names of the four Avatar sequels

James Cameron and Warner Bros. are about halfway through shooting Avatar 2-5, but we still know almost next to nothing about them aside from the fact that they'll take place on Pandora and a few casting tidbits. Now the&...

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...

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...

Nicole Kidman goes bad lieutenant in Destroyer trailer

Nicole Kidman isn't one to shy from darker films like last year's crippling The Killing of a Sacred Deer, but Destroyer may see her at her most transformed. She's as scorched as the desert surroundings, more than a few screws short, and on...

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), ...

Rambo V starts filming and is apparently a western

First Blood was not a movie meant to have four sequels. The original Rambo movie was more of a character study with a heavy focus on PTSD, America after the war, and a striking performance from Stallone. Then the rest of the movies hap...

Review: Death Kiss

Death Kiss is a weird movie. Not so much for its content, which is the grindhouse standard, but for its star's uncanny resemblance to the late Charles Bronson. Perhaps stranger than using CGI to bring a dead actor to life, this impersonator...

Schlock Chuggers: The FP

[Schlock Chuggers is an ode celebrating the wacky, strange, obscene, and vulgar in which members of Flixist and Destructoid drink heavily, watch trashy movies, and talk about it. Any suggestions? Feel free to drop them in the comments!] Who...

Review: Molly

Gambit movie will have a romantic/sex comedy vibe

Look, I know that comic book movie news often takes little quotes and blows them out of proportion, and maybe this information from Gambit producer Simon Kinberg is just that, so I'm going to start by letting his quote speak ...

Epic new poster for X-Men: Dark Phoenix revealed

Literal chills. The final installment of the X-men franchise is to hit theaters next February, and earlier today in a Tweet, @XMenMovies released the details for a brand new poster with Sophie Turner (Jean Grey /Phoenix) silhouetted again...

The Raid 3 is most likely not happening ever

The Raid and The Raid 2 are masterpieces. Literal masterpieces. They are some of the best action of any kind you will see ever. Director Gareth Evans should be directing everything. It's a crime he's not involved with some superhe...

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...

Review: The Predator

I came into The Predator with no real reverence for the series—I had seen the original film a long time ago, caught Predators on cable television once, and all I know about Predator 2 is that Gary Busey i...

Review: Mandy

With a trailer that promised surreal, neon-lit landscapes as a backdrop to an unhinged spree of violent revenge, I marked Mandy as the one movie I needed to experience no matter what this year. I had seen Beyond the Black Rainbow almost a d...

Review: Peppermint

Peppermint looked so good on paper. The director of Taken returning to the revenge genre with Jennifer Garner doing her best Linda Hamilton and telling a bad guy she was going to shoot him in the face? That screams like somet...

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...

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,...

Mr. Plow finally gets the movie he deserves

What's that? You've been wondering where a Hollywood movie about a man who takes on a drug cartel to avenge his son's death with nary a weapon but his trusty snow plow? Well, thank your lucky Liam that your cries have been heard. ...

Review: The Meg

What makes a good bad movie? It's a question I've been pondering over the years as I sit through more and more bad bad movies trying to be good bad movies. Take Skyscraper as a recent example. It's a bad movie, but it's not a good...

Deadpool 2 Super Duper extended cut out on digital now

If you loved Deadpool 2 (and I’m sure many of you did ) you will love the new teaser trailer for the new cut of it available now. The trailer features a very seductive Deadpool in kind of classic black and white promo (it makes me th...

Fantasia 2018 Review: Five Fingers for Marseilles

Five self-appointed protectors watch over the railroad town of Marseilles. They ride through rolling parries, the rock faces of mountains filling the background. The iconography of the American western is alive and well through the South Af...

Our first look at Terminator 6 reveals three bad ass women

Review: Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt is a paranoid, insane, and unruly daredevil. Ethan Hunt is also a guardian angel who will save everyone. These are the two ideas that the latest installment of the venerable Mission: Impossible action serie...

Review: Equalizer 2

There’s a scene in Sony’s The Equalizer 2, the follow-up to 2014’s rather enjoyable original, wherein Denzel Washington’s Robert McCall breaks into a drug den, beats the holy hell out a few guys and pushes his w...

Zombieland 2 is happening with the entire original cast
