FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie” EARLY & FOR FREE

Is it strange that I read the Captain Underpants books long before I had kids?
My friend (and former 102.1 the Edge co-worker) Jessie Jessup introduced me to these stories about kids who turn their principal into a superhero years ago. I still have a few dog-eared copies left, which is why I was thrilled (and a little apprehensive) when I heard that Dreamworks was making a movie out of them.
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie stars Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch as George and Harold. Ed Helms voices their cantankerous principal, Mr. Krupp who eventually becomes Captain Underpants. Yes, I know all of this sounds ridiculous but that’s exactly WHY the books were so awesome and why the movie just might be.

BAYWATCH 2017

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Baywatch” EARLY & FOR FREE

If you were drowning in an ocean, would you rather have Zac Efron save you or Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? Yes, I know it’s a stupid question but they’re both starring as lifeguards in the big-screen version of Baywatch, so answer it anyway. Sure, Zac is all gorgeous and talented but I’m not sure he could drag my screaming, thrashing body out of the water. The Rock, on the other hand, would throw me over his shoulder and glide to shore without even a splash. You know he’d have that patented Concerned-Dwayne-Johnson scowl on his face the whole time, too. Hmmm, while we’re pondering this very important question, why don’t you go ahead and grab passes to see the new Baywatch? Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES- See “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” EARLY & FOR FREE

If I’m being perfectly honest, I’d admit that I haven’t been a fan of Johnny Depp for years now. I’m not entirely sure why that is. Maybe he did too many stinkers like Mordecai and Dark Shadows, or maybe it’s just been too long since I’ve seen him without wigs and make-up. Whatever the reason, I no longer love Johnny Depp UNLESS he’s playing Captain Jack Sparrow. I even liked the last Pirates of the Caribbean: Stranger Tides (one of the few critics who DID), because of the delicious back-and-forth between Captain Jack and his ex-girlfriend, Angelica (Penelope Cruz). Depp gets better to me each time he dons the dreadlocks and boots, which is why I’m giving away passes to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Continue reading →

Robinson & Stenberg

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Everything Everything” EARLY & FOR FREE

This time of year makes me think of high school and that awesome, tingly sensation we all had right before school got out. Seems like I had that blissed-out feeling of hope the whole month of May, like something incredible was BOUND to happen that summer. That’s probably why I’m excited about Everything Everything. This tale of doomed love between a sick, home-bound girl (Amandla Stenberg) and her new neighbor (Nick Robinson) definitely would have appealed to 16-year-old me. I’m not proud to admit that I’ve had a gross old-lady crush on Nick Robinson ever since Kings of Summer, as well. So, do you want to pretend you’re back in high-school with me and see Everything Everything EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

Charlie Hunnam

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” EARLY & FOR FREE

When King Arthur: Legend of the Sword was pitched to the studios, it was described as Guy Ritchie’s Snatch meets The Lord of the Rings movies.
How freaking incredible does that sound?
This retelling of the Excalibur tale portrays King Arthur (Charlie Hunnam) as a street thug, roaming the back alleys of Londinium after losing his family and crown to an evil dictator (Jude Law). It’s supposedly the first in a six-part series, so you’d better go ahead and jump on the bandwagon now. Lucky for you, I’ve got passes to see King Arthur: Legend of the Sword EARLY and FOR FREE.

B.J. Cleveland

MOVIE REVIEWS (by proxy)- B.J. Cleveland Dishes About “Colossal” & “Their Finest”

OK, I’ll admit it. I haven’t seen a movie in a week. Well, OVER a week, since I’m being honest. Sorry, but an extended Easter break and my kid’s 13th birthday made it impossible to get anything done. Even now, I’m listening some obnoxious kids’ show blasting from the other room and it’s Tuesday. WHY ARE THEY STILL OUT OF SCHOOL???

Anyhow, I haven’t seen any movies but my friend, B.J. Cleveland has.
B.J. is a local actor who…
Wait, that’s an understatement. To understand how truly awesome B.J. is, you need to read this quote from The Dallas Morning News:

“B.J. Cleveland is legendary…one of the most talented and versatile talents in town!”

This is why I brag about knowing him. Anyhow, B.J. was alternately cheering and moaning about the movies he saw this weekend, so I asked him to write some reviews for me. I told him that I only needed a few lines, featuring his sparkling wit, and THIS is what B.J. wrote. No one can EVER accuse this man of half-assing anything.

Wimpy Kid

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul” EARLY & FOR FREE

What do you do when you’re a movie series about kids (based on a book series about kids) and your stars get too old to play kids? Well, if you’re the Wimpy Kid series, you just get all-new kids.
Such is the case with Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, which introduces us to a brand new Greg, Rowley and, of course, Rodrick. They even gave us a new Mom and Dad, who are now played by Tom Everett Scott and Alicia Silverstone. That had to be a little weird for original Wimpy parents, Steve Zahn and Rachel Harris, who I guess have to play grandparents now?
Anyhow, I have Family 4-Packs to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul EARLY and FOR FREE. Continue reading →

Dawson & Heigl

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Unforgettable” EARLY & FOR FREE

The premise for Unforgettable terrifies me.
Your man’s EX, who is keep-her-away-from-rabbits-batsh*t CRAZY, gets him back by convincing him you’re the crazy one.
Chilling, right? Mostly because it wouldn’t take THAT much convincing before my husband would be squeezing me into a straight jacket.
The cast of Unforgettable makes it even more believable, with Rosario Dawson playing the NEW GIRLFRIEND and Katherine Heigl playing the EX. Rosario seems like a cool drinking buddy while Katherine would obviously burn all your shit to the ground, just for the cardio.
So, do you want to see Unforgettable EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

I am addicted to posting cute animal videos. I can help it. I see one and think, “REALLY? The world needs to see another baby goat?” Then, before I know it, I’m tearfully sharing it with everyone I know. It’s almost involuntary. That’s why I can’t WAIT to see Born in China, which features the stories of three baby animals growing up in the wilds of China. It’ll be like a feature-length version of my obsession, but better because it’s made by Disneynature.
