FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Sausage Party” ON ME!

Has there ever been a movie that’s more messed up than Sausage Party? I guess it’s appropriate, after a year of lovely animated flicks like Zootopia and Finding Dory, that we’d get this. I don’t know about you, but I NEEDED something completely wrong right now. Something I didn’t have to take my kids to, which is why I’m THRILLED about Sausage Party. Even better, I have passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Click HERE to snag those, then watch the trailer below. Oh, and if you think it’s bad, go watch the RED-BAND TRAILER for Sausage Party. THAT is some serious corruption!

Mommy-Movie-Review: What My Girls Thought of “The BFG”

I watched The BFG with my daughters last night and we had very different opinions of it. In fact, they got a little angry with me for my critique! When Roald Dahl meets Steven Spielberg and Disney, could anything possibly go wrong? Listen below to find out!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See Steven Spielberg’s “The BFG” on Me!

Did you realize that The BFG was written by Roald Dahl, directed by Steven Spielberg and released by Disney?

That has to be one of strongest Film Trifectas I’ve ever heard of!

It stars Oscar winner Mark Rylance as a giant who befriends a lonely young girl and brings her to his home in Giant Country. It’s not entirely safe though, because the other giants prefer to eat people. Can their friendship survive, as the other giants become increasingly more dangerous? How can they warn the rest of the world about giants, when no one else believes in them?

The BFG opens in theaters July 1st, which would have been Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday, but you can see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Just click HERE, then watch the trailer below. Oh dear, it’s probably not a good sign that I just cried through THAT.

Goofy-Looking-Hot-Actors Are Having A Moment: MY TOP 5

I’ve been told that I have strange taste in men. Not my husband of course, who is perfectly handsome and who tends to read my blogs when they could get me in trouble (Hi Honey!). Anyhow, whenever I say “Ooo, he’s cute,” everyone else usually makes a stinky-cheese face. But not lately. No, lately I’ve noticed that weird-looking-cute-dudes are all over TV and movie screens. I got a little carried away trying to list them all (because where does Norman Reedus place on the same list as Rami Malek?) so I cut it down to my Top 5 Goofy-Looking-Hot-Actors. (It’s also just an excuse to find pictures of my favorite famous dudes.) Continue reading →

Movies to Get Excited About in 2016

The holidays are over and it’s honestly kind of depressing, isn’t it? There’s nothing to look forward to, except that one glass of wine you get Saturday night because you’re going to lose this holiday weight, dammit!
Well, some great movies are coming out in the upcoming months. OK, I don’t know if they’re GREAT yet, but there’s enough to get mildly excited about during these snowless winter days.

January
The Revenant- 1/8
People have asked me if this movie is violent. Well, I reviewed The Revenant for WCSX in Detroit and used the words puckered bunghole to describe it. In fact, there’s a bear-attack scene that’s so intense, some people thought the bear was actually raping Leonardo DiCaprio. The Revenant is CRAZY VIOLENT, but it’s also strangely beautiful and will definitely be nominated for something. Hopefully, DiCaprio will even win an Oscar for letting that bear have its way with him.

Kung Fu Panda 3- 1/29
I liked Kung Fu Panda, but I LOVED Kung Fu Panda 2. I wasn’t expecting much from it, and the hint that Po might find his family had me openly weeping as I left the theater. I also CAN’T WAIT to see what happens to the budding relationship between Po & Tigress! Don’t judge me. Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEWS (from other people): “Ant-Man” & “Trainwreck”

I didn’t see ANY movies this week. I went to the lake with some friends and this is what most of my week looked like.
FullSizeRender-137

The only problem with that is some really big movies just opened and people have been asking me about them. I’ve been wondering about these flicks as well so I decided to share reviews from some of my favorite Film Critics WITH you. Makes me seem generous…instead of just lazy.

I’ve been excited about Ant-Man because Paul Rudd can do no wrong in my eyes. I also can’t help but get excited about anything MARVEL does these days. I decided to share Robert Wilonsky’s review of it because he’s my favorite combination: Smart, funny & easy on the eyes. He also likes to share movies with his kid, which I can relate to. His review of Ant-Man got me pretty excited to see it so read that by clicking HERE.

I want to be best friends with Amy Schumer. I want to get drunk with her and run amok and end the evening by prank calling Katie Couric. I’ll have to settle for just seeing her movie Trainwreck. My friend Chase Whale saw this movie at SWSX and he’s been gushing about it ever since. I think he might have even shed a tear or two while writing this review, which is why I simply HAD to share it. You can and ABSOLUTELY SHOULD read his review by clicking HERE.

So THANKS FELLAS for doing the work for me this week. I will be back at it NEXT week though when Pixels hits theaters. I’ve got free passes for that one so make sure you grab those by clicking HERE. I’ll be at that screening with my kids, as well. Just look for the lady with the sunburned face and boat-hair.

PODCAST: Movie Chat With Trudi & Jim at WCSX in Detroit

I started reviewing movies for Trudi & Jim at WCXS in Detroit back in February when Fifty Shades of Grey came out. I love these guys because A) Trudi is awesome and because B) Jim lived in Plano & worked at KVIL for a while. He is awesome as well. I also love these guy because C) they will let me talk & talk & TALK. Any other radio stations I talk to keep my reviews under five minutes. This review is 14 MINUTES LONG! Lord knows, I could talk for DAYS if given the chance.
This week we discussed Magic Mike XXL, Ted 2, and your chance to see Trainwreck WITH Amy Schumer in NYC!
Thanks again to Trudi & Jim! Hope we can get cocktails together one of these days!

BLOG: Who Wants To Watch “Trainwreck” WITH Amy Schumer & Bill Hader?

I love Amy Schumer. Everybody does by now, right? She’s like that really AWESOME babysitter you had as a kid, who let you watch R-rated movies and stay up late. Then you saw her going out with her girlfriends one night and she looked so grown-up and sexy that you thought, “WHO are YOU?”

Obviously, I have a wicked-bad Amy Schumer girl-crush.

Anyhow, she has this new movie coming out July 17th called Trainwreck that looks hilarious. I haven’t seen it yet but they screened it at SXSW this year and everyone there called it “The Best Comedy of the YEAR!” It’s clear that we have to see this movie, but wouldn’t it be better to hit the Trainwreck premiere WITH Amy Schumer and Bill Hader? Well, you could.

All you have to do is donate to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to possibly win a 2 night trip to NYC and a walk on the red carpet at the premiere. Bill Hader will bring truffle popcorn to your seat and Amy Schumer will give you a “disappointing lap dance.” I wonder if she’ll give you a second one if it isn’t disappointing enough? There are different levels of donations but they start at $10 and even I can swing that. Click HERE to FINALLY have that shot at making Amy Schumer your bestfriendforlife, but you’d better share her with me. Or at LEAST share some of that Bill-Hader-Popcorn.

MOMMY-MOVIE-REVIEW: Disney Pixar Hits Puberty With “Inside Out”

Pixar hasn’t had the best luck with film critics recently. It’s last three movies Cars 2, Brave and Monsters University were met with mixed reviews and had some wondering if the animation giant had lost it’s edge. Now they’ve given us Inside Out, a film about an 11-year-old’s emotions which is Pixar’s most ambitious project to date. It also has film critics frantically searching Thesaurus for new ways to say “sweet” and “inventive.” Continue reading →
