FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “The Magnificent Seven” ON ME!

Where has Chris Pratt been? Sure, I’ve seen him nightly on HBO since they’re playing Jurassic World on repeat, but it’s been far too long since my pretend-boyfriend was on the big screen. This dry-spell will come to an end soon, thank goodness, since The Magnificent Seven is hitting theaters September 23rd.

The Magnificent Seven stars Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke, along with the Pool-Boy-of-Your-Dreams Chris Pratt, as gunmen who band together to save a town from thieves. It isn’t a remake of the 1960’s classic, just a re-imagining, so you purists can relax. The Magnificent Seven also stars Haley Bennett, who has had a HUGE year after starring in Hardcore Henry in the spring and in The Girl on the Train next month. Haley is the girl you keep thinking is Jennifer Lawrence, but isn’t.

If you’d like to see The Magnificent Seven EARLY and FOR FREE, just click HERE, then watch the trailer below. See, you totally thought she was Jennifer Lawrence, didn’t you?

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Blair Witch” ON ME!

Can we all take a minute to pretend that the awful Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows movie never came out? Seriously? Can we go back to a world where the original Blair Witch Project scared the bejeezus out of everyone and no one would even think of rolling their eyes about a new Blair Witch movie?

Because that’s the world we’re living in today, my friend.

Director Adam Wingard, who helmed the fantastic You’re Next in 2011, has taken the reigns of Blair Witch and helped that nasty witch find her fangs again. Everyone who has seen it is raving about it and, best of all, I have passes to see Blair Witch EARLY and FOR FREE. Just click HERE to snag those, then watch the trailer below. Oh man, they even brought back those freaky straw figures!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Queen of Katwe” ON ME!

It tickles me to no end when I have passes to something TRULY SPECIAL. I especially love it when that truly special something is a film you can share with your KIDS. That’s why I’m tickled pink about these free passes to see The Queen of Katwe.

This Disney flick tells the true story of a Phiona, who is selling corn on the streets of Uganda when she discovers the game of Chess. Her instructor (David Oyelowo) realizes she’s a natural and her mother (Lupita Nyong’O) will do anything possible to help Phiona become an international chess champion. The Queen of Katwe is packed with wonderful performances as well as great messages about humble beginnings and strength of spirit, so you should definitely share it with the cool kid in your life. Even better, I have passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Grab your free passes to see The Queen of Katwe by clicking HERE, then watch the trailer below. Oh dear, you know we’re in trouble when I’m crying through the trailer!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Sully” ON ME!

What would you do if you met Chesley Sullenberger today?

Would you shake his hand? Buy him a drink? Maybe give him a big bear hug?

Did you know that the man who landed a disabled Airbus A320 on the Hudson River has been questioned about that decision? Did you also know that many flight simulations found the plane he was flying that day COULD have made it back to the airport safely? Is it possible that he actually risked the lives of the 155 people onboard when he landed in the water?

Do you still want to buy Sully that drink?

Sully stars Tom Hanks as Chesley Sullenberger and it’s directed by Clint Eastwood. It’s based on Sullenberger’s own memoir, The Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters, and here’s the deal…

I’ve already seen it.

Yes, I’ve already seen it and I’m DYING to tell you all about it but I’ve been asked by the studio not to. All I can do is tell you something you already know…

You REALLY want to see this movie.

And thanks to ME, you get to see it early and for free! Just click HERE for those passes, then watch the trailer below. You know what? I think I’d give Sully that big bear hug anyway.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Bridget Jones’s Baby” ON ME!

I’m excited about seeing Bridget Jones’s Baby, but not just because I love her. Yes, I want to see what that adorable klutz is up to and find out why on EARTH she didn’t end up with Mark Darcy, but there’s more to it.

The truth is that I’ve missed Renee Zellweger and am so happy to see her back on screen after far too many years away. Cheers to you, lady!

That’s why I scrambled to get as many free passes to Bridget Jones’s Baby as I could. I have 30 pairs for the first 30 people who write their names in the COMMENTS below. Of course, you could include a note about how much you enjoy watching my reviews on Good Morning Texas or how cute my shoes were this morning, but you don’t have to. Just type your name below then watch the trailer again with me. OH NO! What if the old boyfriend ends up with the new boyfriend?

Free Film Festival Passes!!!

I have free passes to 2 film festivals this weekend, which is a HUGE relief for those of us who are completely out of funds. Seriously, I have 2 birthdays to shop for right now AND loads of back-to-school crap to buy. There’s also that massive summer vacation that just drained the reserves so thank goodness for freebies!

The McKinney Classic Film Festival is this Friday through Sunday and will feature the screwball comedies of Cary Grant. Sure he’s funny, but let’s all just take a moment to remember what a smoking hot fox Mr. Grant was.
cary_grant_new_7a
Damn. Well, if you’d like to watch him be all cute and sexy FOR FREE, I have passes to watch 5 of his movies in historic downtown McKinney! Don’t feel like watching all 5 movies? Then leave and get a cocktail somewhere! You can do whatever you want because you didn’t pay for them!

I have 3 pairs of passes and they will go to the first 3 people who put their names in the comments (along with “McKinney” and the city on their driver’s license). Yes, they will check your ID at “Will Call” so don’t bother trying to cheat. If you don’t win but still want to buy tickets to the festival, click HERE.

I also have free passes to the Women Texas Film Festival that’s happening at the Texas Theatre all weekend. This brand new event will feature the works of established and emerging female filmmakers, as well as panel discussions, classes and PARTIES! Oh heck yeah, there’s even a karaoke night! I have 5 pairs of passes for the first 5 people who put their names in the comments (along with “Women TX” and the city on their driver’s license). If you don’t win but would like to buy tickets to the Women Texas Film Festival, just click HERE.

Don’t be greedy and try to get free passes to BOTH! You’ll have to choose one or the other and share the love. Have fun and watch out because you’ll probably see me there. Oh yes, because everything’s more fun when it’s FREE!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “War Dogs” ON ME!

War Dogs is one of those movies that I’m trying to NOT get excited about. Everything I hear about it makes that more difficult, though.

First of all, Jonah Hill and Miles Teller (two of my favorites) play 20-somethings who start dealing weapons and unexpectedly win a 300-million-dollar contract from the Pentagon. That’s a great start but it’s also directed by Todd Phillips, who did all of the Hangover movies. He brought along one of his favorites, Bradley Cooper, to play a shady businessman and who doesn’t love it when Cooper plays the bad guy? Best of all, the whole thing is based on a true story!

Aww, to Hell with it! Let’s go ahead and get all tingly, goose-bumpy excited about War Dogs! Grab your free passes by clicking HERE, then watch the trailer below. Seriously, War Dogs looks almost too good to be true!

FREE MOVIES PASSES: See “Kubo & the Two Strings” ON ME!

The summary for Kubo and the Two Strings reads like an awesome old-school Bruce Lee movie. This is what I copied from IMDB.com: “A young boy named Kubo must locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past.”

Oh yeah, and he battles demons using a magical instrument, called a shamisen.

See what I mean?

Kubo and the Two Strings is also the latest from Laika Studios, which brought us cool stop-motion projects, like The Boxtrolls and Coraline, AND it’s Matthew McConaughey’s debut performance in an animated feature. Pretty cool, right?

Even better, you can see it EARLY and FOR FREE so click HERE to snag those passes, then watch the trailer below. In fact, watch the trailer first, because how incredible does THAT look???

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Sausage Party” ON ME!

Has there ever been a movie that’s more messed up than Sausage Party? I guess it’s appropriate, after a year of lovely animated flicks like Zootopia and Finding Dory, that we’d get this. I don’t know about you, but I NEEDED something completely wrong right now. Something I didn’t have to take my kids to, which is why I’m THRILLED about Sausage Party. Even better, I have passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Click HERE to snag those, then watch the trailer below. Oh, and if you think it’s bad, go watch the RED-BAND TRAILER for Sausage Party. THAT is some serious corruption!
