Mirren & McKellan


Helen Mirren is a badass.
We already knew that, but the fact was reinforced this week when she was mistaken for Keanu Reeves’ girlfriend, Alexandra Grant. See the likeness?

Sure…I see it.
Mirren says she’s “flattered” by the confusion and that she’s a big fan of Keanu Reeves, but never addresses the fact that Alexandra Grant is 28 years younger than her. So, it’s clearly a good time to be Helen Mirren. Then again, when is it not?
This has nothing to do with The Good Liar, other than the fact that Helen Mirren stars in it with Ian McKellan. I have passes to see The Good Liar EARLY and FOR FREE, as well. Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEW (by proxy): Will “Last Christmas” Steal Your Heart? (or Just Give it Away?)

Doctor Sleep and Last Christmas screened on the same night in Dallas, and my life-long Stephen King addiction wouldn’t let me to skip his film. My girlfriend Kristi Bernstein, who adores holiday rom-coms (sorry but I do NOT) offered to take the bullet for me. Here is her Last Christmas review.

I need to be upfront here. I have a complete bias when it comes to romantic comedies, especially those that involve Christmas. It has to be truly terrible for me not to sit up late at night in December and watch it for the 15th time. I even watched Holiday in the Wild this weekend on Netflix, which was so bad I wanted to gouge my eyeballs out. Then I watched it again with my 13-year-old daughter because…you know…it’s a Christmas rom-com. With that said, I just watched Last Christmas with my friend Kathryn. Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEW: Does “Doctor Sleep” (aka “The Shining Part 2”) Hold Up ?

Stephen King released a follow-up to The Shining called Doctor Sleep in 2013. It introduces a modern-day Danny Torrance, who has spent years trying to smother his “shine” with drugs and booze. A new friendship with a young girl who also “shines” forces him to reconcile his past and together they fight an evil known as “The True Knot.”
The big-screen version of Doctor Sleep picks up with Wendy and Danny Torrance right after events at the Overlook Hotel. Continue reading →

Honey Boy Screening


Shia LaBeouf has written a screenplay about his turbulent youth and what it was like to grow up as a child star. Honey Boy also addresses a strained relationship with his father, and LaBeouf even plays him onscreen. While this sounds like a recipe for disaster (to me, at least), critics can’t stop raving about this film and Honey Boy is currently one of the highest rated films on the horizon (according to Rotten Tomatoes). Why not see it EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

Midway movie


I’d watch Woody Harrelson play just about anything and the idea of him as Admiral Chester Nimitz during WWII sounds almost perfect. He stars with Patrick Wilson, Ed Skrein and Luke Evans in Midway, which centers on that battle and how it was a turning point in the Pacific. So, who wants to see Midway EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

Balinska, Stewart, Scott


Yes, Charlie’s Angels is back and NO this one has nothing to do with Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz or Lucy Liu. That’s probably a good thing since Lucy Liu and Bill Murray almost killed each other in the first one! If you haven’t heard that juicy bit of Hollywood lore, you can read about it HERE (they supposedly even came to blows) but this Charlie’s Angels comes from director Elizabeth Banks (who also plays Bosley). It’s also got Kristen Stewart, Ella Balinska and that adorable Naomi Scott (from this year’s Alladin) as the Angels. So, who wants to see this brand new Charlie’s Angels EARLY and FOR FREE? Click HERE to snag your passes if so, then watch the trailer below. And take a minute to appreciate that theme song from Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey!
