We have a Discord server!

Just in case that title wasn’t obvious enough, Flick and Mix now has a Discord server that’s open to everyone.

If you’re interested in joining a fledgling forum of flick fans, click the link below.


For those who join, all I ask is that you be respectful to others. Don’t go being a twat, now.

The whole point of this server is to get us all together in one place so we can wax intellectual about our favourite movies, games and TV shows. There are text and voice channels for you to share your thoughts in. Anything from spoiler discussions to recommendations, even interesting facts that you’d like to share, the floor is yours.

There’s precious little meat on this bone yet but it’s early days. Eventually I’d like to branch out into podcasts and live community watchalongs, but the first step is to get you lovely people through the door.

Hopefully I’ll see you in there.

Alost every Terminator movie was shafted by its own trailer

Trailers are the best marketing tool a movie can have. Within a couple of minutes, a good trailer can give you a feel for what an upcoming movie is going to be like, hint at interesting plot elements and showcase the main characters.  What a trailer should never do is reveal plot twists, which is something that the marketing department behind the Terminator franchise just can’t grasp.
