Review: Skyscraper

I'm not sure why, but I was kind of thinking that Skyscraper would be something special. Not like, "good" special, but just some sort of low-key, fun action flick that riffed a bit on Die Hard and The Towering Inferno. I mean, it ...

Wonder Park trailer is clearly hiding a dark secret

We got the first trailer for Paramount's Wonder Park today and normally I'd let it slide right by but the teaser trailer is so devoid of anything even remotely hinting at a plot that I felt compelled to share it. It definitely looks stunni...

Ant-Man and the Wasp lands another success for Marvel

Looking at the raw numbers you'd have to say that Ant-Man and the Wasp was a letdown for Marvel. After all, their last five openings easily crossed the $100 million dollar mark on opening weekend without even trying, and Ant-Man o...

Review: Ant-Man and the Wasp

I laid my feelings out about the Ant-Man films and their importance to the Marvel cinematic universe yesterday so I won't dive too deeply into that again, but suffice to say Ant-Man is a bit of an odd duck in the MCU, and it's all the ...

Ant-Man movies are the most important films in the MCU

We all know that Marvel has done something special with their cinematic universe. Well, not just special, groundbreaking. They invented the cinematic universe, and despite being the first people to do one of these things they're also the be...

M. Night Shyamalan shares a reflective poster for Glass

I saw Split late and the entire time sitting through it all I could think was that it was good, but not great, and whatever twist everyone was talking about wasn't going to change that. AND THEN THE TWIST MADE IT GREAT. Never have I watched...

Showtime brings teabagging to life with Halo TV show

Halo is a franchise ripe for film adaptation. Lone, badass in cool armor tearing up an alien race while saying cool stuff? Yea, it writes itself. Actually, turns out it doesn't, as Halo film adaptations have been stuck in lim...

Dinosaurs still make money even when they're in a bad movie

It's not too unexpected, but Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opened big this weekend with $150 million box office despite the tepid reviews of the film. Clearly, the franchise has legs, and people still love dinosaurs doing dinosaur things. ...

Review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

One of the amazing things about the original Jurassic Park is its ability to create wonder. No matter how many times I watch it, the reveal of the dinosaurs at the beginning of that movie is awe inspiring. I get goosebumps every t...

Phantom Menace is easily the worst sequel ever made

When I first began thinking about the worst sequel ever made, my mind actually instantly jumped to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. That movie was bad from head to toe for a litany of reasons that I was going to expand upon, but it's not a bad seq...

Review: Tag

I'm going to say this right up front because I know most of you don't even read past this first paragraph. Tag is easily one of the funniest movies I've seen in years. I was not expecting that going in, but coming out I had laughed so ...

The dark and tortured history of Mario in Super Smash Bros.

Something is clearly wrong. I'm as excited as the next guy for Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, but there's clearly something disturbing going on here. Mario, our usually affable plumber friend, has gone insane. When the box art dropped for t...

Ocean's 8 has best opening in franchise history

Hello. We interrupt your E3 news blasts to bring you this important update on how much money movies made. You're probably just playing Skyrim on your Alexas anyway. So Ocean's 8 did pretty well this weekend, pulling in $...

Review: Hotel Artemis

Hotel Artemis, like some cool, hole-in-the-wall motel you find on a road trip, has promise. You think it looks cool and a bit retro, and it'll have heart. Not like those big chain hotels that cost twice as much. It'll be an adventure stayin...

Review: Hereditary

Hereditary had so much buzz coming out of festival season that I was chomping at my horror bit to get into theaters and see it. I'm not sure I was more excited to see a single film at SXSW this year (until the surprise announcement of ...

The pieces come together for first LEGO Movie 2 trailer

I am hyped for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part because it looks like it's basically the first movie, but more. Most of the time when a movie is just the first movie but more things go wrong. Jokes get recycled, characters get d...

 
 


About Matthew Razakone of us since 2:04 PM on 04.03.2009

Matthew Razak is the Editor-in-Chief here at Flixist, meaning he gets to take credit for all this awesome even though its really the rest of the amazing staff that gets it done. He started as a community member back in the early days of Destructoid and bugged his way into writing for the site while being the Managing Editor over at That VideoGame Blog. He was also writing as a film critic for a local newspaper in the DC area and for Examiner.com. Finally after seven years of thinking silently to himself why the Modern Method network doesn't have a movie site he told Niero that we should start one. At the same time Fronz had been telling him to start a movie site too. The two of them teamed up with Niero's go ahead and now we have Flixist.

Matthew is totally open to any movie of any genre, but his wheelhouse is horror, action and James Bond. Doesn't sound too respectable but he's also got a fancy film degree from Vassar College and he's a member of the Washington Area Film Critics Society so that makes him semi-official in some capacity. He just really like movies and hopes that's enough to let you trust his opinion on them slightly.

He get asked these questions a lot when he tells people he writes for a movie blog, so:

Favorite movie: Evil Dead 2

Favorite franchise: Bond

OK, Favorite Bond movie: From Russia With Love

If you want to know the movies you have to see to get Flixist head here.

Currently backed upcoming crowdfunding projects:

Shenmue III
Xbox LIVE:Cowzilla3
