FREE MOVIE PASSES: See Natalie Portman in “Annihilation” EARLY & FOR FREE

If you’re a fan of the Southern Reach book series, then you already know what Annihilation is about. If you’re like the rest of us who AREN’T familiar with the books, you’ll probably watch this trailer and think, “What tha HELL is going on here?”
Natalie Portman stars as a woman who joins a dangerous expedition in hopes of saving her husband. That’s really all I could figure out, other than there’s something that looks like a bubble over everything that’s turning people into monsters. The coolest thing about Annihilation though, is the cast. Watch the trailer below and tell me what YOU think is different about it. Then grab passes to see Annihilation EARLY and FOR FREE Continue reading →

The 15 17 to Paris

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “The 15:17 to Paris” EARLY & FOR FREE

This movie is incredible to me, for many reasons. First of all, The 15:17 to Paris is based on the TRUE story of a thwarted terrorist attack, which is fascinating in itself. It also stars the actual men who were involved in that ordeal, playing themselves. The other incredible thing about The 15:17 to Paris is that Director Clint Eastwood is currently 88-years-old. Yes, 88-years-old, which means he has directed 6 movies (including the Oscar-winning American Sniper and the Oscar-nominated Sully) since turning 80.
See? Pretty freaking incredible, right?
Which is exactly why you should grab passes to see The 15:17 to Paris EARLY and FOR FREE Continue reading →

Early Man


Most people in the movie industry DREAD the idea of being called a Neanderthal right now or, even worse, a Cave Man. The folks at Aardman Animation (Chicken Run, Wallace & Gromit) don’t really see it that way, though. In fact, the hero of their latest release, Early Man, just happens to be a Cave Man who has to save his tribe from the evils of the Stone Age. It has a stellar cast of voice-actors too, including Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams and Eddie Redmayne. Even better, I have passes to see Early Man EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →

Peter Rabbit

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See James Corden as “Peter Rabbit” EARLY & FOR FREE

What was Mr. McGregor’s problem, anyhow? Always chasing Peter Rabbit and his family around, trying to eat everybody? It’s pretty grim stuff for a children’s book, but that was Beatrix Potter’s THING. She wrote about Squirrel Nutkin, who was almost skinned alive by an owl, and poor Jemima Puddleduck, who came this close to being a fox’s dinner before losing her eggs to hungry puppies. Even Peter Rabbit’s Dad was “baked into a pie” by Mrs. McGregor. What’s the deal Beatrix?
Well, it looks like the original Peter Rabbit has gotten a much needed update, with the fabulous James Corden playing the rabbit in the blue coat. Even better, the Flopsy Bunnies are voiced by Margot Robbie, Daisy Ridley and Elizabeth Dibicki while Domhnall Gleeson takes on Mr. McGregor! That sounds weird to me too, but I never thought he could pull off half the roles he’s been in. The man is mercurial. So, want to see Peter Rabbit EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

12 Strong


If you watched the Golden Globes recently, you probably saw countless trailers for the new movie, 12 Strong. I know many of us (me included) first thought, “Oooo, LOOK! A Chris Hemsworth movie that isn’t Thor,” but there are several, much better reasons to see 12 Strong. It’s based on Doug Stanton’s book Horse Soldiers, which tells the true story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11. There, they worked with an Afghan warlord, and against unspeakable odds, to take down the Taliban. 12 Strong stars Michael Shannon, Rob Riggle, and Michael Peña along with Chris Hemsworth, as well as Elsa Pataky, who is married to Hemsworth in real life. Rob Riggle plays Colonel Max Bowers, the former battalion commander of the 5th Special Forces Group. Riggle is a Marine and actually served under the real Colonel Bowers. Pretty cool, right? Almost as cool as the passes I have to see 12 Strong EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →

Phantom Thread


Set in 1950’s post-war London, Phantom Thread tells the story of a renowned fashion designer whose life is turned upside down when he falls in love with a strong-willed woman.
Sounds pretty meh, right?
Well, what if I told you that Phantom Thread is the latest from writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson, the same guy who did Boogie Nights and There Will Be Blood? It also stars Daniel Day-Lewis and is the first time he and Anderson have worked together since There Will Be Blood won two Oscars. Daniel Day-Lewis even co-wrote the Phantom Thread script with Paul Thomas Anderson AND, if you are still for some reason not intrigued by this, you should know that Day-Lewis plans to retire after this film.
From acting.
What, you’re still not interested?
Then you probably shouldn’t snag any passes to see Phantom Thread EARLY and FOR FREE. Continue reading →



Did you know that the new Paddington movie is currently one of the highest rated movies on Rotten Tomatoes? Yep, Paddington 2 is currently sitting at 100%, which means that 0% of the critics who’ve reviewed it have found anything negative to say about it. If you take a look at the Paddington 2 reviews (you can do that HERE), you’ll find quotes like,
“…might well be a staple of festive television for years to come,”
or “Paddington 2 won’t save the world, sadly, but it’s existence makes everything just that tiny bit better and more, well, bearable.”
There’s also this little bon mot:
“Unless you’re dead inside, you will not fail to be utterly charmed by Paddington 2.”
Sounds like those of us who aren’t dead inside should be excited!
I haven’t seen Paddington 2 yet, but I plan to do so soon and would love it if you’d join me. Continue reading →

Farmiga & Neeson


Look, I’m just going to be honest here.
I can’t figure out what the hell The Commuter is about.
I get that Liam Neeson is a businessman who happens to be on a train when Vera Farmiga (who’s a Bad Guy this time) shows up and says he has to do something awful for a whole lot of money. Oh, and Patrick Wilson is in The Commuter too, but he and Vera are not playing Ed and Lorraine Warren, which makes me kind of sad. But Jonathan Banks is in it and he’s always awesome, plus I have passes to an early screening so you don’t even have to pay to see it! Continue reading →

Bale & Studi


Are you sick of the Holly Jolly B.S. of the holidays? Has the forced emotion and financial blood-letting of the season left you hollow inside, with just a simmering hint of rage?
Oh NOT ME, of course! I’m just peach-fuzzy over the tree-that-has-to-come-down, the extra six pounds I’m now carrying and staggering blankness of my bank account. No, I’m talking about all the other people who want to get back to work just so they can start repairing the wallet-damage that’s been done.
I suspect that Hostiles is the movie for all of you people (re: Us).
It stars Christian Bale as an 1892 Army captain who must escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through dangerous territory. Rosamund Pike and Wes Studi also star in what’s highly likely to end up on the Oscar’s short-list. Continue reading →
