FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Paddington 2” EARLY & FOR FREE

Did you know that the new Paddington movie is currently one of the highest rated movies on Rotten Tomatoes?

If you take a look at the Paddington 2 reviews (you can do that HERE), you’ll find quotes like,
“…might well be a staple of festive television for years to come,”

There’s also this little bon mot:
“Unless you’re dead inside, you will not fail to be utterly charmed by Paddington 2.”
Sounds like those of us who aren’t dead inside should be excited!
I haven’t seen Paddington 2 yet, but I plan to do so soon and would love it if you’d join me. Continue reading →
