Introducing the “Haunted AF” Podcast: Do You Like Scary Stories?

If you know me personally, you know that I love a good ghost story. I love hearing them and telling them and once I get started, you can forget about getting anything else done for the day. This is why I started the Haunted AF podcast with my friend Rebekah Black, who is also more than a little obsessed with scary stories. We won’t be creeping into haunted houses or ghost hunting on our own (not yet at least), but each episode features stories from people who’ve experienced something they simply can’t explain. It launched today with three episodes, but we’ll be adding more weekly. You can find the Haunted AF podcast on iTunes and Spotify (please subscribe and give us a quick review!) but I thought I’d share them right here as well, to get you started (make sure you start at Episode 1). Hope you enjoy it and please let us know if you have a scary story of your own at hauntedafpodcast@gmail.com!

Brie Larson

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Captain Marvel” EARLY & FOR FREE

Brie Larson is taking a beating right now! People have been trashing her new movie Captain Marvel before even seeing it, trolling her personally, and even accusing her character of “not smiling enough.” (Seriously?) You won’t hear me buying into any of it, though. I’ve been a huge fan of Brie Larson’s work since her 21 Jump Street days, and I especially appreciate how she supports diversity among film critics. Larson even gave this very website a plug on Twitter once, so I might have a bit of a crush on her. Sure I’m biased, but that doesn’t change the fact that Captain Marvel IS getting great reviews (read some of those HERE) AND ticket sales have already outpaced Wonder Woman. In fact, it’s currently the 2nd highest advanced ticket-seller (for a superhero movie) right behind Black Panther! None of that will matter if you get to see Captain Marvel EARLY and FOR FREE, and I actually have passes to TWO screenings! Continue reading →

2019 Oscars Gossip (a secret host?) & Predictions on “Good Morning Texas”

I was on Good Morning Texas Friday with my favorite Literary Expert, Gwen Reyes from Fresh Fiction, and surprise Guest Host, Bill Bellamy! We discussed all the gossip that’s been circling the 2019 Oscars (is there actually GOING to be a host???) and made our predictions for Sunday night’s ceremony. You can watch that HERE, and don’t forget to watch the 2019 Oscars on ABC this Sunday night at 8pmET. Join me on Twitter too (@JulieHFisk) as I share my opinions throughout the night. I promise my tweets get better as the night goes on (and the wine goes down). Also, if you’d like to catch Bill Bellamy onstage this weekend, he’ll be at the Addison Improv Friday through Sunday. You can find tickets to those shows HERE.

Those “big screen” shots never get old. Well, at least not to me.

MOMMY MOVIE REVIEW- How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

The first How to Train Your Dragon film came out in 2010, when my daughters were just 6 and 3-years-old. We’ve been avid fans of the series since, even taking the DVDs on frequent road trips over the years. Maybe that’s why the last film in the series, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World hit me like a freight train of Mommy-emotions. Continue reading →

MOMMY MOVIE REVIEW: Can Kids See “Happy Death Day 2U?”

My kids and I loved the first Happy Death Day and were eagerly awaiting Part 2. It might sound strange that a family was excited about a scary Blumhouse flick, but Happy Death Day wasn’t your typical slasher fare. The Groundhog Day-meets-Scream concept-film managed to be scary (but not too scary) and funny. It was also rated PG-13 and therefore tame enough to share with older kids. We’ve watched it every time it’s been on cable since and have been counting the weeks to Happy Death Day 2U. We never expected it to be as good as the first and had no idea how they’d justify more repeated days, but we were still completely blindsided by the fact that Happy Death Day 2U Continue reading →

Huppert & Moretz

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

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 →

Devine, Wilson & Chopra

“Isn’t It Romantic” MOVIE REVIEW (& Parent Review)

Isn’t it Romantic stars Rebel Wilson as a woman who loathes Romantic Comedies, then conks her head and wakes up in one. There she finds a New York City that’s been coated in candy shell, and that men who previously didn’t notice her are suddenly smitten. She’s been given an updated version of everything, from her job to her clothes to apartment, and she now has a previously non-existent gay best-friend. She distrusts this alternate universe though, and tries desperately to return to the meaner, smellier New York of her home. Continue reading →

WWE

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Fighting with My Family” EARLY & FOR FREE

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?
