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...

 
 
Superman bein' Superman photo

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...

Nick's Top 15 Movies of 2015

2015 was a crazy year for a lot of us here at Flixist. There were some major changes inside and out. On my end, I moved across the country and have been getting into new digs for the past ten months. I'm loving my new life right now, and no...

 
 
Videogamesssss photo

Could we get a great videogame film in 2016?

There are tons of films based on videogames. Straight adaptations, wild derailings, films about people playing videogames, films made to advertise videogames, documentaries, films where videogames cross into the real world, films about futu...

FlixList: The Ten Worst Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror Stories

You know, it's always great to reminisce about The Simpsons in their heyday but in order to truly celebrate the Halloween holiday, we need to talk about some truly horrific things: The awful Treehouse of Horror specials. Sure I could easily...

FlixList: The Ten Best Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror Stories

I've invested the greater part of my life into The Simpsons, and while there may have been more downs than ups lately, it's still consistently bringing me laughs with each offering. Most of them happen to come with their annual Halloween sp...

Snaxist NYCC Edition: Nestle's Star Wars Coffee-mate Creamer

I'm not a huge coffee drinker. I don't drink the stuff daily, nor do I even drink it on occasion, but I've recently found that as I get older, it's harder and harder to wake up. Seeing as how I actually needed coffee for once, and that thes...

 
 
Best Korean Movies on Hul photo

The Ten Best Korean Films Streaming on Hulu (2015 Edition)

Last month, we posted our list of best Korean films available on Netflix. But I made the point there that Netflix's supply has been drying up lately. Over the course of this year, the number of available films has quite literally halved. On...

 
 
Fall/Winter Preview photo

Flixist's seriously stupendous Fall/Winter movie preview

The Fall/Winter movie season is probably the best of the year. We get horror with October and then roll on into big blockbusters, holiday greatness and awards season. It's the best time to watch movies, even though it can be overwhelming at...

Fall 2015 TV Premieres: What to Watch and When

I have a pretty outstanding relationship with television. More so than movies (it's so weird that I work here, right?), TV practically raised me from the mean streets of Sesame to the well adjusted adult that I am now. This fall there's a l...

FlixList: The 8 Best Steven Universe Episodes

In the nearly two years since it first debuted, Steven Universe has done something few kids' shows do. Created by Adventure Time alum Rebecca Sugar, Steven Universe is a show that manages to be fun, hilarious, exciting but also deep. It's m...

 
 
 
Wes Craven's Best photo

FlixList: Wes Craven's Five Best Films

I've never been a big horror fan. I get squeamish with bloody action, jump scares always catch me, and I don't really like looking at disturbing images in general. But when a horror film is well crafted, I can't seem to look away. Only one ...

 
 
Top 12 Nintendo Films photo

12 films based on Nintendo games we need (right now)

Video game movies are, nine times out of ten, not awesome. There have been exceptions, but generally speaking a movie is just a shade of the franchise it's supposed to represent. Why watch it when you can play it? But with Nintendo announci...

 
 
Bojack Horseman 4 Lyfe photo

Bojack Horseman is the Spec Ops: The Line of TV Shows

The first season of Bojack Horseman sort of came out of nowhere, at least as far as I was concerned. Back then, I was underemployed and watched pretty much anything that seemed vaguely interesting. I generally trusted (and continu...

Snaxist: Denny's Slamtastic Four Menu

Every so often, there'll be a product with a spark of genius. Something that comes along and makes you think, "Why wasn't this a thing already?" like donuts based on Ghostbusters, Avengers cereal, and even that time Denny's created a new me...

 
 
MTV's Scream photo

Don't bother with MTV's Scream TV Series

Back when MTV first announced they were developing a pilot based on the Scream films, I thought it was a great idea. I have a huge fondness for the films themselves, and barring Scream 3, no other series did more for the slasher genre. I wa...

5 dinosaur movies you should watch instead of Jurassic World

While Jurassic World takes the *ahem* world by storm, I never really connected with the idea. I don't have as big of a connection with Jurassic Park as a lot of folks do, but at the same time, I love me some dinosaurs. Good thing too as our...

Seven movies that need a black and white re-release

When director George Miller mentioned that his preferred version of Mad Max: Fury Road (aka The Best) is in black and white, there was a resounding, "Um, what?" followed by a unanimous "OH HELL YES!" When he announced that said version...

The Cult Club: Putney Swope (1969)

New York Times film critic A.O. Scott, in one of his signature recurring gags, wrote that Mad Max: Fury Road was rated R because it featured "A ruthless critique of everything existing." The same might be said of Putney Swope, Robert D...

Review: Pitch Perfect 2

Everybody loves a song. It can be the perfect emotional climax to a movie. From The Blues Brothers to School of Rock to Linda Linda Linda to, hell, the original Pitch Perfect, the final performance as cathartic moment is a we...

The Mad Max Trilogy: Look Back in Anger

I have yet to see Mad Max: Fury Road, which comes out this week, but I did get a chance to see the first three Mad Max movies over the weekend at a friend's place: Mad Max (1979), Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981), and Mad Max: Beyond Thun...

Snaxist: Kellogg's Avengers: Age of Ultron Cereal

This is the kind of promotion I've been waiting for. When I started Snaxist with Max Roahrig (RIP) some years ago with Denny's ill advised Hobbit Breakfast Menu, it was the fact that'd I'd be able to talk about cereal someday on the off cha...

Why It Sucks To Go To The Movies In London

Earlier this week, I complained errantly on twitter, as I am wont to do, about my local cinema’s increasing of prices to £11.80. (Which, for those of you in America, comes to $17.51 for a standard 2D ticket). I was mostly baiti...
