Gina Rodriquez

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See Gina Rodriquez in “Miss Bala” EARLY & FOR FREE

I’ve been binge-watching Jane the Virgin on Netflix, so it’s hard for me to imagine Gina Rodriquez as anything other than sweet, virginal Jane Villanueva. Rogriquez isn’t new to drama or action films though, having starred in flicks like Deep Water Horizon and Annihilation, but I still imagine her sporting a pregnant tummy and some adorable, floral maternity gear.
Not the case in Miss Bala though, where Rodriquez plays a woman who’s forced to work for a dangerous drug cartel. She uses strength and talents she never knew she had to save herself from certain death, and turns into a bit of a badass along the way. So, who wants to see Miss Bala EARLY and FOR FREE?

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

I’ve got it bad for Kathryn Bigelow.
Not only did she direct and co-write two of my favorite movies (The Hurt Locker & Zero Dark Thirty), she also ran against ex-husband James Cameron for the 2010 Best Director Oscar and beat him. That has to be the greatest case of revenge EVER.
I’d get behind anything Kathryn Bigelow did but her latest movie, Detroit, looks outstanding. She has re-teamed with writing partner Mark Boal, to tell the true story of the 1967 Detroit Rebellion. Bigelow also packed the cast with powerhouses like John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, Jason Mitchell and John Krasinski. She even found a spot for Hannah Murray, whom we can all agree plays an adorable Gilly in Game of Thrones. So, want to join me at an EARLY and COMPLETELY FREE screening of Detroit?

MOVIE REVIEW: “The Night Before”- Well, THAT Was A Surprise

I’m not sure WHY I expected Seth Rogen’s latest comedy The Night Before to suck, but I did.

I expected it to suck even though it also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who was in one of my favorite Seth Rogen movies ever (50/50– Pick it up if you haven’t seen it). I expected it to suck even though it also stars my new favorite Avenger, Anthony Mackie, who can currently do no wrong in my book. Maybe I expected The Night Before to suck because the concept seems so thin. Three friends meet on Christmas Eve every year to get hammered. Sounds like an excuse for marginally-funny “look how wasted we are” shenanigans and cameos by Rogen’s celebrity pals, right? That’s exactly what The Night Before is, but it’s also a whole lot more.

FILM STILL - OUR BRAND IS CRISIS

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Our Brand Is Crisis” for FREE!

I’m pretty sure that, given the chance, Sandra Bullock and I would be BEST FRIENDS.

I can just imagine her coming over to my house, where we’d play UNO and talk about boys while our kids played basketball in the driveway. Maybe I’d open some wine and she’d braid my hair while we prank called Melissa McCarthy. Then we’d watch Love Potion #9 together and she’d tell me all about the celebrities she’s slept with and rate their performance.

What? Did I make it weird?

Well, it doesn’t matter because the closest any of us will be getting to Sandra Bullock is when her next movie, Our Brand Is Crisis comes out October 30th. Bullock plays a political strategist who retires due to a scandal, then returns to fight her nemesis, played by Billy Bob Thornton.

The cool thing about Our Brand Is Crisis is that George Clooney produced it and was supposed to play the main character. He gave it to Sandy instead when she told him how frustrated she was about the lack of solid female roles. That’s a pretty cool friend, isn’t it? I wonder if those two have ever hooked up? Am I making it weird again?

Well, I have free passes to see Our Brand Is Crisis at the Angelika in Dallas next week. Just click HERE to snag those and don’t forget to show up a little early in case there’s a line. I’ll be there too, so maybe WE can braid each other’s hair and talk about boys. Ooo, and do YOU have Melissa McCarthy’s phone number? Because I’d REALLY like to prank call her.
