There are sooooo many reasons to be excited about Toy Story 4. First of all, it’s already getting 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is really no big surprise. Secondly, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele play a two-headed carnival-prize named “Ducky,” which I can’t wait to see. Toy Story 4 also features a new character named “Duke Kaboom” who’s voiced by none other than Keanu Reeves. Finally, get excited about Toy Story 4 because it probably won’t make us cry uncontrollably the way Toy Story 3 did. At least I hope it won’t. So, who wants to see Toy Story 4 EARLY and FOR FREE?

I was on Good Morning Texas today, going over all the big movies to watch for in the coming weeks. We’ve got some monstrous flicks on the horizon, like Spider-Man: Far From Home, Toy Story 4, The Lion King and Annabelle Comes Home so click HERE to watch my Summer Movie Preview. Also, try to ignore the fact that I don’t know what to do with my hands on TV. Next time, can I just braid Alanna Sarabia’s hair while we’re talking?
I need to say a huge THANK YOU to Dallas Jewelry Design Studio Vintaglio for providing the beautiful turquoise jewelry I wore today. You can see what else they have to offer on their Facebook page, or by following them on Instagram. Better yet, drop by the new Vintaglio showroom at 1903 Skillman Street in Dallas, Texas. Their jewelry is even better in person, and they’ll gladly discuss custom designs with you.
Don’t forget to check the Julie Says So Free Movie Passes page before you go because I’ve got lots of freebies rolling in. I think there are even some passes left to see the new Toy Story 4!
There are TWO IMPORTANT THINGS you need to know before spending any money to see Rocketman. Continue reading →
I saw the saddest tweet from actress and newly minted director Olivia Wilde this morning.
I took this one personally because, with all the madness that is May, I simply forgot to write a review of Booksmart. Now it’s in theaters and people are apparently NOT seeing it, even though it will probably be one of their favorite films of the summer.
Booksmart follows Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein) as they wrap up their senior year of high school and prepare for Ivy League life. These overachievers soon realize that their far-less-serious classmates are also heading to prestigious universities and that their years of library-time might have been somewhat wasted. Amy and Molly decide to cram 4 years of high school antics into 1 night, but it tests their friendship in unexpected ways.
Booksmart isn’t a perfect movie by any stretch. Continue reading →
You know it’s summer when the bombastic blockbusters start coming out, and it doesn’t get much more bombastic than Godzilla: King of the Monsters. This time around, Godzilla faces off with Mothra, Rodan and the three-headed King Ghidorah, while Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler stare in wonder. I don’t think fans will get too caught up in the plot, though. Godzilla: King of the Monsters is really just about watching epic battles play out onscreen and, if this new movie poster is any indication, it plans to deliver. So, who wants to see Godzilla: King of the Monsters EARLY and FOR FREE? Click HERE to snag your passes if so, then watch the trailer below. And not that it really matters, but Godzilla: King of the Monsters is already getting some pretty great reviews! You can read some of those HERE.
Don’t walk into Rocketman expecting the Elton John version of Bohemian Rhapsody. Sure, it’s the same type of rags-to-riches through rock-n-roll flick, plus it’s also directed by Dexter Fletcher (who took over directing Bohemian Rhapsody after Bryan Singer pulled a Bryan Singer). This is Elton John’s story though, so expect Rocketman to be quite unlike anything you’ve seen before. John acts as Executive Producer as well, so prepare yourself for far more music, costumes and even fantasy sequences than you normally see in biopics. Even better, you can see Rocketman EARLY and FOR FREE, thanks to me! Continue reading →
I am crazy about the John Wick movies (okay, maybe not the second) and this new one does not disappoint. It’s like a shinier, rowdier, deadlier version of the first, but made better with even more dogs. I don’t need to write a summary of the John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum plot, do I? You already know that John Wick is going to kill a bunch of slick bad guys while making it look like an art form. That’s why we go to these movies, right? To scream, laugh, cover our eyes, and ultimately have a great time. That’s exactly what I did for about 3/4 of the movie until one scene in particular sucked the air out of my lungs.

When the first images of the new, live-action Aladdin were released in December, social media took one deep breath, then collectively shat itself. Twitter in particular went of the rails with gleeful vivisections of Will Smith’s “Genie,” comparing unkindly him to a post-diet Sinbad. You can read bits of that feeding-frenzy HERE, but the new Aladdin is actually getting good reviews. Sorry to rain on anyone’s “Everything Sucks” parade, but Guy Ritchie’s version of the Disney classic is being called “lavish,” “enjoyable,” and one guy even used the word “amazing.” You can read those reviews HERE if you don’t believe me, or you could just go see the new Aladdin EARLY and FOR FREE! Click HERE if you’d like passes to that free screening, then watch the trailer below. I even included a newly released clip of Will Smith singing “Prince Ali” to help you decide.

If Seth Rogen’s Superbad and Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird had a baby, if would probably be Booksmart. It’s about two high-school overachievers who decide to cram the entire teenage experience into one night. Booksmart stars Kaitlyn Dever (The Front Runner) and Beanie Feldstein (squeee “Julie” from Lady Bird!) and is the directorial debut of Olivia Wilde (who is way more talented than I realized). Best of all, I have free passes to see it! Continue reading →
