Greta stars Chloë Grace Moretz as a woman who finds a purse on a subway, and befriends the woman she returns it to (the incredible Isabelle Huppert). Things take a turn soon after though, as Greta becomes a May-December version of Single White Female. Feel like seeing it EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Fighting with My Family stars Florence Pugh as a girl who’s born into a pro-wrestling family, then follows her dreams to join the WWE. If that sounds far-fetched to you, then you’ll be surprised to know that Fighting with My Family is based on a true story and 2012 documentary of the same name. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays himself but he worked behind the scenes as well, executive-producing while British actor/writer Stephan Merchant directed. There’s an excellent cast too, including Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones, The Purge) and Vince Vaughn (Wedding Crashers, Hacksaw Ridge) as an American WWE scout, who visits London in search of new talent. Wrestling fans already know how the story plays out, but the rest of us are in for some sweet and occasionally sad surprises. So, who wants to see Fighting with My Family EARLY and FOR FREE?

I have been forced to watch a Fifty Shades of Grey movie the week before Valentine’s Day for three years in a freaking row! That’s why I am so thrilled the series is behind us and I can spend Valentine’s Day watching something OTHER than unsexy soft-porn, like Isn’t It Romantic! This one stars Rebel Wilson as an unlucky-in-love woman who hits her head and wakes up in a romantic comedy. Is it any good? I have no idea, but it won’t include two people faking their way through a Red Room and that’s all that matters to me! So, who wants to see Isn’t It Romantic EARLY and FOR FREE with me?

I remember how completely NOT interested I was in the first LEGO Movie. I even told my daughters to keep their expectations low because it was “probably going to be goofy.” Then The LEGO Movie was goofy, but in the most wonderful, fun-to-watch way! I’ve enjoyed every LEGO Movie that’s come out since (yes, even LEGO Ninjago) so I’m especially jazzed about The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. So, who wants to see it EARLY and FOR FREE with me?

I’ve been binge-watching Jane the Virgin on Netflix, so it’s hard for me to imagine Gina Rodriquez as anything other than sweet, virginal Jane Villanueva. Rogriquez isn’t new to drama or action films though, having starred in flicks like Deep Water Horizon and Annihilation, but I still imagine her sporting a pregnant tummy and some adorable, floral maternity gear.
Not the case in Miss Bala though, where Rodriquez plays a woman who’s forced to work for a dangerous drug cartel. She uses strength and talents she never knew she had to save herself from certain death, and turns into a bit of a badass along the way. So, who wants to see Miss Bala EARLY and FOR FREE?

The Prodigy stars Taylor Shilling (Orange is the New Black) as a mother whose son starts to turn creepy. Is he simply a gifted child who struggles to connect with other kids? Or are dark forces working through him? Can this mother save her child? Or should she focus on saving herself?
Movies about Creepy Kids are great, but they get even SCARIER after you’ve had kids. That’s when you realize that kids are freaking scary, even when they’re not trying to be. Sometimes they’ll say things that are unintentionally cryptic. Other times they’ll sneak up on you in the kitchen and stand completely still by the fridge until you shut the door (also the first time I screamed F*CK at my daughter).
Sometimes they’ll do or say things that make no sense at all, like a woman who wrote to me years ago. I was on a morning radio show in Dallas, Texas and people would often write to me about their problems. This one woman in particular had a 3-year-old who was obsessed with car wrecks. Her little boy would describe them in great detail, as if he’d witnessed a horrible one (which he hadn’t). He also cried when his mother left the house and insisted she was going to die in a car crash. I’d love to tell you that there was a happy ending and that he grew up to be a normal kid, but I never heard from her after that email. I even wrote her back, but she never responded and that has always worried me.

How fun does this movie look?!!! The Kid Who Would Be King stars Ashbourne Serkis as a modern-day teenager who finds the mythical sword, Excalibur. He must then build an army to fight Merlin’s evil sister, Morgana before she takes over the world. It’s kind of like Harry Potter meets 1981’s Excalibur, with a little Shaun of the Dead thrown in. There’s a great cast too, with Patrick Stewart and Rebecca Ferguson playing Merlin and Morgana. So, who wants to see The Kid Who Would Be King EARLY and FOR FREE? I have passes to see it in Houston (HERE) and San Antonio (HERE). Continue reading →
The Upside is actually a remake of an excellent French film from 2011 called The Intouchables. It was also about a wealthy man who becomes a quadriplegic after an accident and hires a caregiver with a questionable past. I haven’t seen the remake with Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart yet, but The Intouchables was one of my favorite films that year (it was even nominated for a Golden Globe). So, who wants to see The Upside EARLY and FOR FREE? Good because I have passes for screenings all over Texas! Continue reading →
