Thanksgiving can be a dangerous minefield of political debates and familiar family-squabbles, just waiting to unfold. The best way to avoid them is to sit quietly next to each for a few hours and there’s no better place to do THAT than a movie theater! Of course, there are still plenty of ways to go wrong with the film you chose, so here are the Julie Says So TOP 5 MOVIES to see this Thanksgiving. Continue reading →
Hope you got some time off for Thanksgiving because the past 2 weeks have gifted us with a cornucopia of highly anticipated flicks. Not all of them are worth the hefty ticket price, though. I’ve seen all of the new releases (OK, most of them) and can tell you which ones to see with your family, which ones to see with your drunk, adult friends, and which ones you should dodge like a bullet. Here are the Julie Says So Movies to See Over Thanksgiving (and which ones to AVOID). I even put them into nifty categories to make it easy for you.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald feels like a J.K. Rowling fever dream. She packed it with everything she thinks we want to see in a Fantastic Beasts follow-up (loving shots of Hogwarts, surprising family trees and, of course, fantastic beasts), but she also had to tell about 20 other stories in the process. You’re left with a four-hour-long mess (OK, it’s just 2-hours-long but it FEELS so much longer). My 11-year-old looked at me as the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald credits rolled and said, “What? I’m so confused.” And that sums the whole movie up in 4 words. (D)
Best Part: Jude Law’s young Dumbledore is simply delicious.
Worst Part: Johnny Depp. Just any scene he’s in. Continue reading →
Guess what? I saw A Star is Born last week. What do you need to know about it? Nothing, other than the fact that it’s wonderful! Oh, and you should also know that I have FREE PASSES to see it before it opens in theaters 10/5. Continue reading →
A handful of “Scary” movies have been released recently that go beyond that genre. Films like A Quiet Place and Get Out might be listed as “Horror,” but I feel their interesting stories take them beyond that, and even encouraged people who aren’t “Horror fans” to see them anyway.
Hereditary is NOT one of those films!!!
This R-rated picture about the death of a family matriarch is beyond terrifying, and might have even set a new industry standard. Continue reading →

There are quite a few new movies out this week so I had to make some updates to my list. Unfortunately, not ALL of the new releases made it into the Top 8 Movies, but I was really surprised by the ones that did. Continue reading →
