I’m a parent so I know that we’re reaching the low, dark days of “when the hell does school start again???” Mine are older and I’m out of the kids-hanging-on-you-in-the-pool days, but they still manage to empty the fridge AND bank account on a daily basis. So I feel your pain. That’s why I’m happy to offer FREE PASSES to see The Angry Birds Movie 2!

My 14-year-old read Crazy Rich Asians this summer and is already griping about how the movie is different from the book. How does she know? I have no idea. Something about the trailer but who cares if you can see it EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Dammit, this movie had better be good.
Sorry, but I’ve got some mounting concerns about Ocean’s 8, even as I watch Sarah Paulson calmly promote it on TV. Every time Sandra Bullock shows up looking sheik and relaxed on some late-night talk show, I tell myself that I’ll probably love Ocean’s 8. I smile as a sparkling Cate Blanchett plugs the movie and chugs beer with Jimmy Fallon, but in my heart I think, “Please…don’t let this movie suck.”
Because Ocean’s 8 can’t be just another Ocean’s movie with famous women in place of famous men. It can’t be a well-shot fashion show where glamorous women smirk as they rob other glamorous women. It has to be smart. It has to be funny. It has to tell a story we haven’t seen before and more importantly, Ocean’s 8 needs to make a statement about women and where we stand today.
And, if I was being completely honest, I’d admit that I need Ocean’s 8 to be even better than the Ocean’s movies that came before it.
No small task, right?
So, who wants to see Ocean’s 8 EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
