There haven’t been many options for kids in theaters lately, but that changes in a big way with Smallfoot! Starring Channing Tatum, Zendaya, James Corden and LeBron James, it tells the story of a Yeti who finds a terrifying small-footed creature, then sets out to prove it’s existence to his unbelieving village. So, who wants to see Smallfoot EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Guess what? I saw A Star is Born last week. What do you need to know about it? Nothing, other than the fact that it’s wonderful! Oh, and you should also know that I have FREE PASSES to see it before it opens in theaters 10/5. Continue reading →
There are a ton of movies out now, but it’s been a while since a just-for-kids kind of flick has hit theaters. The end of September brings two big ones our way though, and one smaller picture that kids will love, even if they haven’t heard of it yet.
The first is one that’s opening this weekend (9/21), The House With a Clock in Its Walls.

Years ago, I posted a blanket request for Good Books to Read on social media. Someone suggested The Goldfinch, which I picked up and hated so much that I actually started reading The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt before I even finished it. I loved that book, because it was funny, but also because it felt like something horrible could happen at any minute, like a Tarantino flick. They managed to capture that tone with the cast for The Sisters Brothers movie, including Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, Jake Gyllenhaal and, holy crap, Rutger Hauer! So, feel like seeing The Sisters Brothers EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
I was on Good Morning Texas today, breaking down all my favorite moments from the 2018 Emmy’s with Jane McGarry, Alanna Sarabia and Holly Quartaro from the Galleria Dallas. Click HERE to watch the segment, but there were TWO important things that I didn’t have time to mention!
First of all, do you remember that strange man who shook Bill Hader’s hand after he won?
If you watch the show Atlanta on FX, you’ll recognize him as Teddy Perkins from what has to be the freakiest episode of that series yet! You can read more about him HERE, or better yet, just go find the Teddy Perkins episode and WATCH IT!
I also wanted to talk about Joe Keery (“Steve” from Stranger Things) and his voluminous mullet. The Twitter-verse just about imploded when he showed up with…wait. Who was he with? I know he had a date but I was too busy looking at that hair.
Feel free to share your favorite moments from the 2018 Emmy’s in the “Comments” below and remember to check the Free Movie Passes page while your here. I hope to have freebies to see A Star Is Born any day now!
Here’s the new “Julie Says So” MOVIE MINUTE, featuring my review of Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively in A Simple Favor. I also have the TOP 5 MOVIES to see this weekend, as well as a look at Hugh Jackman’s latest in the HOTTEST NEW TRAILER. If you were wondering about other new releases, click HERE to read about White Boy Rick and HERE for reviews of The Predator. Remember to check the FREE MOVIE PASSES page as well, and as always, HUGE THANKS for ON-AIR MEDIA for all of their help!
I know it’s a little late but here’s the latest Julie Says So MOVIE MINUTE featuring my review of The Nun. I’ve also got the TOP 5 MOVIES to see now (with some flicks you probably haven’t heard of) and stay to the end for the HOTTEST NEW TRAILER of the week. Remember to check the FREE MOVIE PASSES page while you’re here to see what kind of goodies I’m giving away, and if your kids are of the “creepy” variety (like mine), click HERE to get my MOMMY MOVIE REVIEW of The Nun!
I’m guaranteed a handful of shocked responses from parents whenever I write Mommy Movie Reviews for horror flicks like The Nun. I’m not suggesting that ANYONE should take their toddler, or even older kids who don’t like scary movies. These reviews are strictly for parents like me, whose kids WANT to be scared out of their wits.
So, if you allow your kids to see it or even offer to take them yourself, what can you expect from The Nun? Continue reading →
What were you up to at 15? I think I was probably prank-calling friends, looking for parties and doing as little homework as humanly possible. Richard Wershe Jr., on the other hand, was a drug-kingpin and FBI informant by the time he turned 15. Makes you feel kind of lazy doesn’t? Richard Wershe Jr. is also the subject of the new movie White Boy Rick, which hits theaters September 14th. Newcomer Richie Merritt plays young Richard Wershe, while Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey plays his Dad, who was also a dealer. I actually love it when McConaughey plays strung-out, so who wants to see White Boy Rick with me, EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
It’s a quiet time for new movies, so I thought I’d use this week to tell you about the OSCAR BUZZ I’m hearing. It might be too early to really tell, but that hasn’t stopped the predictions from rolling in! Check the FREE MOVIE PASSES page while you’re here because I have a TON right now, as well as the NEW MOVIES you should watch for in September. And try to ignore the weird face I’m making in the still-shot below. I’m not really capable of making faces that aren’t weird.
(Huge thanks to ON-AIR MEDIA for their production help!)
