Miracles From Heaven has everything a parent could want. It has inspirational messages about faith and hope and how miracles can sometimes be found in the most unexpected places. It also stars Jennifer Garner as a desperate mother, and I think we’re all cheering for Ms. Garner right now. In fact, someone just sent me this short of her reading Go the F*ck to Sleep and it’s about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
I imagine Jennifer Garner has cleaned up her language a great deal for Miracles From Heaven so click HERE to snag free passes to that and then watch the trailer. Oh don’t worry, this one IS safe for work!
I just watched the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane again and got chills up and down my arms! What the hell is happening here? Speculation has run the gamut and the fact that J.J. Abrams is a producer has added to the obvious Cloverfield monster-movie connections. I can tell you that my research (meaning the 5 minutes I just spent on Google) determined that this project was around long before it was attached to Abrams and that there was originally no mention of monsters. That honestly tells us nothing so instead of speculating any further, just grab free passes to see 10 Cloverfield Lane by clicking HERE, then watch that freaky trailer again. Seriously, what the hell is happening here?!!!
You just can’t decide about seeing The Witch, can you? Some people say it’s insanely scary, others say it’s just a big disappointment. Even I had a hard time making up my mind about it (read my review of The WitchHERE). The BEST way to see a movie you’re not sure about is FOR FREE, right? And lucky for us I have a few passes to see The Witch, but only 2 pair. Don’t complain, it was the most I could get but they are RUN OF ENGAGEMENT passes. That means you can use them whenever you want at any Dallas-area AMC Theater. Here’s what you have to do to get them.
I will give these passes to the first 2 people who post pictures of their favorite witches in the “Comments” section. For example, here’s mine:
Got it? Good. And this is NOT a time for political statements so no pictures of Hilary Clinton please, or any other candidates. Yeah, I know you were already photoshopping Donald Trump on a broom. GOOD LUCK!
I’ve made it abundantly clear that I LOVED Zootopia, right? Click HERE to read my review of it but all you really need to know is that it’s fantastic and that I gave Zootopia an A+. Yes, I’m aware that’s the second A+ I’ve given in recent weeks (I was pretty crazy about Deadpool too) but I’m not getting soft. That’s just how goodZootopia is and best of all I HAVE FREE PASSES! Click right HERE to grab those and then watch the trailer with me again. Omigod, THAT SLOTH!
Everything about Whiskey Tango Foxtrot makes me tingly.
It’s based on the real experiences of Kim Barker, a journalist who worked in Afghanistan and Pakistan during Operation Enduring Freedom. Barker wrote a book called The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan and Tina Fey’s production company Little Stranger picked it up. The screenplay was written by Robert Carlock (30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) AND it’s produced by Lorne Michaels. Best of all, Tina Fey PLAYS Kim Barker and she has a weird affair with Martin Freeman (who will ALWAYS be Bilbo Baggins in my book). Pretty much nothing but gold there, right? Well, just in case it isn’t, why don’t we all see Whiskey Tango Foxtrot FOR FREE? I have passes to a screening on March 1st so click HERE to snag those and then watch the trailer. I mean, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot HAS to be good, right? Oh shit, I just got chills watching the trailer again.
I’ve never seen Zoolander. I don’t know how the Hell it happened, but I somehow got this far in my life without seeing the Magnum, the Ferrari, or even THE BLUE STEEL. People are always shocked to hear this and in some ways, I feel like I shouldn’t even bother now. Maybe it could be my thing. Well, I’d better decide soon because the Zoolander 2 screening is this upcoming Tuesday and I’VE GOT FREE PASSES! Just click HERE for those and then watch the trailer below. Omigod, we have to go, just to watch Benedict Cumberbatch play ALL!
I saw the trailer for How to Be Single a few months ago and it made me laugh so hard that I immediately shared it with everyone I knew. Rebel Wilson is my Spirit Animal and I’m surprised by how much I dig Dakota Johnson. She was the only good thing about Fifty Shades of Grey, and she was fantastic in Black Mass. Unfortunately, everyone was too freaked out by Johnny Depp’s make-up to notice.
I guess How to Be Single is about a bunch of single women running around New York City. It’s like an updated Sex and the City, but without the designer shoes, and with LESLIE MANN. She was so adorable in The Other Woman, that she was actually hotter than Kate Upton. Don’t bother telling me I’m wrong about that, because I’M NOT. Now, I KNOW you want to go so click HERE to grab those free passes and then watch the trailer below. Oh my God, I really need to get drunk with Rebel Wilson!
Can I tell you how ticked-off my 11-year-old is about NOT GETTING TO SEE Deadpool? She simply can’t believe that anyone would release an R-rated Marvel Movie, and though I sympathize with her…I love it.
According to the press release Ryan Reynolds plays “former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.” I don’t relish the idea of what happens to Ryan Reynolds’ pretty face, but this looks like loads of fun and GUESS WHO HAS FREE PASSES! The screening is February 12th and YES, there will be a line to get in so show up early. Click HERE for your passes, then take a minute to watch the trailer. Do it AWAY from the kids though because it, like the movie, IS RATED-R…which means they can’t see it. (evil laugh)
Not very long ago, I wrote an article about the movies I’m REALLY excited to see in the next 6 months. If you missed it, you can find that by clicking HERE (and you should because I had a blast writing it).
One of the films I gushed about was Pride, Prejudice and Zombies, which is obviously the Jane Austen story, but with some zombies thrown in for good measure. I’m thrilled about this because it sounds absolutely ridiculous (in the best possible way) and because it stars Lily James and Lena Headey, my 2 most recent girl-crushes.
The screening is February 2nd and you can get your passes by clicking HERE, but get there EARLY. These passes will get you in for free but they won’t reserve your seats. Something tells me that EVERYONE will want to see this one, so get in line ASAP. It’s at the AMC Northpark so at least you can get overpriced drinks from the bar. Print your passes and then watch the trailer below.
My niece Caroline came to visit recently and was gushing about a movie she’s dying to see. It was something about a woman who goes searching for her twin sister in a real-life area of Japan called The Suicide Forest, but that’s all I remember. Honestly, I was overwhelmed with Star Wars: The Force Awakens fever at the time so I really only heard about 35% of what she said. Here I am though, only a few weeks later, getting REALLY excited about The Forest.
This film stars Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & 2) as Sara, a woman whose twin sister (also played by Dormer) goes missing in Japan’s Aokigahara Forest. It’s known as The Suicide Forest because of the number of people who go there each year, to kill themselves (it’s 2nd only to the San Francisco Bridge in annual suicides). Legends claim that the woods are haunted and that not everyone who entered at the base of Mount Fuji actually planned to kill themselves. It’s just what happened, after the spirits got to them.
Even the stars of the film were overwhelmed by the Aokigahara Forest. Taylor Kinney (Chicago Fire) plays Sara‘s friend Aiden, and he got a little freaked out when his compass and cell-phone stopped working. Plus, the remains of some of the people who took their lives are still there, scattered amongst the trees. Director Jason Zada said guides who took him into the forest rubbed salt on their backs, so the souls of those left there couldn’t ride them out. Zada rubbed salt on his back too, just in case.
It sounds like great material, but will The Forest be a great movie? Find out for yourself by printing out THIS PASS and then watch the trailer for The Forest below. DON’T FORGET: This pass will get you and a guest in for free but it DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOUR SEAT. Get there early or your date might want to drag YOU into a haunted forest!
