Ant-Man & Wasp

MOMMY MOVIE REVIEW: Is “Ant-Man & the Wasp” OK for Kids?

We were in dire need of a lighthearted Marvel movie after April’s devastating Avengers: Infinity War, so thank goodness Ant-Man and the Wasp are back and bringing the laughs. This time, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lily) are attempting to bring her mother (played by a stunning Michelle Pheiffer) back from the Quantum Realm, with the help of Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). A stranger called Ghost threatens their progress while a sleazy billionaire (Walton Coggins) attempts to steal their technology at every turn. Time is running out to save The Wasp’s Mom, and Ant-Man will risk it all (including his own family-life) to save her.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is brought down by the Quantum Physics jargon that’s constantly thrown around, and a side-story involving Ghost and Hank Pym‘s former colleague (Lawrence Fishburne) never makes much of an impact. You’ll have too much fun to care though, thanks to Michael Peña’s Luis. He’s back as Ant-Man’s business partner and he almost steals the whole movie with that crazy, clueless smile. Peña and Paul Rudd’s eye-winking charm bring an airy, sweetness to Ant-Man and the Wasp, while Evangeline Lily brings the brains and brawn. I had a blast watching this movie and gave it a B+, but is it appropriate for your kids? Continue reading →

Whitney Houston

Reviewing “Whitney” on GOOD MORNING TEXAS

I was on Good Morning Texas today, bright and early to discuss the new Whitney Houston documentary, Whitney. I’ve been telling everyone that, if they saw only ONE documentary this year, it needed to be Won’t You Be My Neighbor, about Fred Rogers. Well, I’m changing my tune. Whitney is like Breaking Bad, Sid & Nancy and A Star is Born, all rolled into one. It also gives you a chance to fall in love with Whitney Houston all over again, and to watch her sing when she was just getting started. Click HERE to watch the Good Morning Texas segment and find your tickets to see Whitney by clicking HERE.
Whitney is rated R and opens July 6th.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Ant-Man & the Wasp” EARLY & FOR FREE

I know we’re all excited about seeing Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly in Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, but something’s been bothering me.
Have you gotten a good look at the Wasp’s outfit?

Evangeline Lilly
Do YOU see it???

I was a little put-off by the weird boob-cups when I first saw it, so I hit Google to see if I was alone. Imagine my surprise when HelloGiggles.com pointed out something I had completely missed. You can read about that HERE, but you’ll never look at the Wasp in costume without having dirty-thoughts again.
You still want to see Ant-Man and the Wasp though, don’t you? Especially if you can see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Uncle Drew” EARLY & FOR FREE

Did you know that the movie Uncle Drew is actually based on a TV commercial?
Yep, Pepsi first released the documentary-style Uncle Drew ad with N.B.A. star Kyrie Irving back in 2012 and it quickly went viral. They made a feature length version of it, with Irving still playing the septuagenarian ball player, but added Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson and Lisa Leslie to his team. Now, Pepsi has released another Uncle Drew commercial to promote the Uncle Drew movie, which came from that original commercial. It’s like a snake eating it’s tail, isn’t it? So, do you want to see Uncle Drew EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

Mommy Movie Review: Is “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” OK for Kids

Someone did me a big favor before I saw Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
They told me it was awful.
I searched for a second opinion online, and found loads of critics who called Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom lifeless, intellectually insulting, and possibly the worst in the series. I had the world’s lowest expectations when I saw it and because of that, I kind of liked Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Yes, it’s lifeless, far-fetched and you might shake your head at it’s more ridiculous moments, but Jurassic World: Fallen World is also a cinematic roller-coaster ride that offers one of the most inspired endings from the series yet.
But is it OK for kids??? Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Sorry to Bother You” EARLY & FOR FREE

If you aren’t excited about the film Sorry to Bother You, you must not have read any of it’s crazy-enthusiastic reviews. One of my favorites comes from Alex Arabian of filminquiry.com, who says this:
Sorry To Bother You is an intelligent, batshit crazy satire that offers plenty of the theater of the absurd, a standout performance from Lakeith Stanfield, the most original script of the past two years, and plenty of laughs and food for thought.”
Sounds pretty great, right? You can read the rest of that review HERE (or browse through the other glowing Rotten Tomatoes reviews HERE), OR you could just grab FREE PASSES to see Sorry to Bother You from me! Continue reading →
