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...

 
 
Warcraft photo

Review: Warcraft

When Warcraft (then World of Warcraft) was first announced with Sam Raimi directing, I thought that was pretty perfect. Raimi has a deft touch for handling things that are slightly absurd. His almost tongue-in-cheek direction...

Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

When the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot happened I was mostly just worried since I'm of the age where I like to pretend that my generation can lay claim to the heroes in a half shell. But that's pretty ridiculous considering almos...

 
 
Popstar Review photo

Review: Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

A couple weeks ago was the finale for the forty-first season of Saturday Night Live. At one point, fairly late in the show, a familiar title screen came up: "An SNL Digital Short" For people who loved everything from "Lazy Sunday" to "...

Review: Hard Sell

I want to say nice things about this film. That's the feeling I'm left with as I'm watching it. I believe I understand where the Writer/Director, Sean Nalaboff, is coming from. Hard Sell is "a coming-of-age tale ... [about] a high scho...

 
 
Beauty and the Beast photo

First trailer for Emma Watson starring Beauty and the Beast

I'm still weirded out by the fact that Disney is making adaptations of their adaptations of famous fairy tales, but so far they've been pretty good or even revolutionary so let's roll with it. The next one up is Beauty and the Bea...

 
 
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...

 
 
Nice Guys photo

Review: The Nice Guys

There's something a little off about The Nice Guys. It should work really well. Two great actors who play off each other fantastically with director/writer Shane Black bringing his talents back to the neo-noir genre. Plus, it's all set in t...

 
 
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...

 
 
James Bond photo

Daniel Craig is reportedly done as Bond... or not

Daniel Craig is leaving the Bond franchise according to the Daily Mail, which is more of a gossip rag than anything else. The actor may have turned down a £68 million deal to star in the next two Bond films, which included e...

 
 
 
Harley Quinn photo

Harley Quinn to get her own movie

Suicide Squad isn't even out yet, but DC is pretty sure they've got something good with Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn. THR is reporting that Warner Bros. will be launching a stand-alone Harley Quinn movie... or a movie centered around H...

 
 
Review: High Rise photo

Review: High-Rise

High-Rise is a bit all over the place, and it's a bit of a mess, but it also seems to be that way by design--a sort of warped architecture. I'd gone in sort of expecting a vertical version of Bong Joon-Ho's Snowpiercer, but it's not that at...

 
 
 
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...

 
 
Civil War photo

Review: Captain America: Civil War

I can guarantee one thing about Captain America: Civil War. When you come out of the theater you will have an incredible appreciation for Chris Evans' biceps. Like... woh. I can almost guarantee another thing (though some people are just cr...

 
 
Space Jam 2 photo

Justin Lin to direct Space Jam 2 with Lebron James

Holy mother of pearl, it's happening. It's really happening. We're about to return to the Jam and Lebron James is coming with us (also Justin Lin). THR is reporting that the basketball star is set to star in the Looney Toons sequel with Lin...

 
 
Punisher photo

Netflix announces a stand alone Punisher series

If you watched this last season of Daredevil you know that someone finally nailed Punisher. Jon Bernthal absolutely stole the show with his slightly psychotic and entirely compelling portrayal of Frank Castle. People loved it and evide...

 
 
Mother's Day photo

Review: Mother's Day

I'm not going to pull punches here because Mother's Day is easily the worst movie I have seen in years. It is unfathombly offensive, boring, unfunny and terrible in every way possible. I didn't head into it thinking it was going to be great...

 
 
Ratchet & Clank photo

Review: Ratchet & Clank

Ratchet & Clank is the epitome of a film that doesn't do anything wrong, but that doesn't make it right. I suppose I should start by saying that I have not kept up with the games this movie is based on. I played the original and se...

 
 
Review: The Family Fang photo

Review: The Family Fang

All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way... well, unless you're an unhappy family in a movie, in which case you're pretty much alike. Distant/absent parents. A dictatorial patriarch. A strange childhood wh...

 
 
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,...

 
 
 
Magnificent Seven photo

First trailer for The Magnificent Seven concerns

When you're discussing The Magnificent Seven you're discussing some serious pedigree. The movies it is based on are two of the greatest of the genres (samurai and western) so remaking it is a daunting task. I thought that with Antoine ...

 
 
Jungle Book photo

Review: The Jungle Book

At this point in my jaded film critic life it takes a lot to actually impress me with special effects. We've seen Transformers and giant blue aliens and everything in between on screen by now, and great digital effects are almost second nat...

 
 
 
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 Trailer photo

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 ...

 
 
Hardcore Review photo

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 ...

 
 
Star Wars photo

First trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Gareth Edwards is directing a Star Wars movie. The man who has helped to redefine how you direct large objects hurtling at each other has his hands on the Death Star and all of a galaxy far, far away. I mean, that's a fact that is real...

 
 
Batman v Superman review photo

Review: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

A few weeks ago there were rumors that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice made Warner Bros execs nervous. These rumors suggested the film would be divisive, and that the movie wasn't getting the audience responses they wanted. An unnamed so...

 
 
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...

 
 
Divergent photo

Review: The Divergent Series: Allegiant - Part 1

When the first film in the Divergent series came out it was pretty obvious what was going on. Lionsgate wanted a Hunger Games so they found a young adult series with a post-apocalyptic setting and cast an up-and-coming starlet. Th...
