I started a minor riot on my Facebook page yesterday. No, it wasn’t about that. I just admitted that I don’t like musicals and everyone attacked, saying they were outraged and that we could no longer be friends. I thought I might have to say something political, just to calm them all down. The only reason I mentioned my disdain for musicals is because I saw LA LA LAND and loved it. Yes, I adored every single second of that movie even though Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling sing and dance the whole way through it. That might sound ridiculous to anti-musical people like ME, but LA LA LAND is also the top contender for Best Picture this year. So, do you want to see it EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
My kids were out of school for Spring Break last week, so I’m actually late with this post. Forgive me, but I was simply too busy running around the beach, trying to convince myself it wasn’t cloudy and 65 degrees. Our break is earlier than most schools though, so you might still be planning yours. There’s always at least one cloudy Spring Break day that’s best spent in a theater, so here are my Top 5 to Films See with Your Kids over Spring Break:
5. My first pick is Miracles from Heaven, but this one comes with conditions. This is a faith-based movie (even produced by T.D. Jakes) so there’s lots of God Talk. If that makes you uncomfortable, prepare to be totally gooned out. Jennifer Garner stars and keeps it from getting too heavy-handed, so don’t scratch it off your list entirely. Miracles from Heaven is also based on the true story of a very sick little girl, which is often difficult to watch. It might be too much for more sensitive viewers, but it might be just right for your crew. Here’s a link to my original review, which was actually made by my daughters and some of their friends. Check it out first, if you can’t decide about the movie.

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?!!!
