About FB/BS


Welcome to Flashback/Backslide, a magical place where the newest movies are discussed, mocked, and cherished. FB/BS was created by self-proclaimed movie aficionados whose only real qualifications for helming an internet movie website are possession of an old laptop, a faulty internet connection, and the willingness to spend the majority of their disposable time and income in local movie theater seats or roaming from Redbox to Redbox. Countless hours have been spent retrofitting our apartments to build a movie-watching paradise stocked with oversized chairs and ottomans mounted with popcorn machines. Time not spent crafting this paradise is inevitably devoted to scouring for the best seats in local theaters like an old man sweeping the beach with a metal detector, seeking out that optimal mix of popcorn smell, foot room and reclining ability. Now, we’re sharing my obsession through this digital frontier to anyone who will listen.

Movies have provided more content to our collective memories than almost any other source and must be lauded, applauded and praised. One-liners like this and this, fight scenes like this and this, twists (SPOILER ALERT) like this one and this one over here, tough guys like this guy and this one, villains with bad hair and no hair, and moments like all of these. Not all movies are created equal. Some will be remembered more than others and some will be remembered solely due to their dreadfulness (think Nic Cage). We’re here to help parse out which to see and how to see them, for as long as you’re willing to follow.

Thanks for reading!
