FREE MOVIE PASSES: See the New “Ghostbusters” ON ME!

Everyone’s been fussing about this Ghostbusters since plans for a new one were announced. I don’t know why people got so worked up, but I never considered the Ghostbusters from 1984 a sacred cow to begin with. It’s hard to complain about any movie you see FOR FREE though, which is why I’m hooking you up with these. If you’d like to see the new Ghostbusters, just click HERE to grab your passes, then watch the trailer below. Sure it’s one of the most HATED movie trailers on Youtube. That doesn’t mean it HAS to be bad, right?


PODCAST: My Review of “The Jungle Book” on Power Hits 97.5

I welcomed a new show to my family of stations today. Robert Elfman from Power Hits 97.5 in Junction City, KS had me on to review The Jungle Book, but he said the segment would need to be 90 seconds long. As you know, brevity isn’t my THING but I think I pulled it off. Thanks to my new friends at KJCK for having me on. I look forward to chatting movies with you again, and to talking really fast!


MOMMY-MOVIE-REVIEW: My Kids Review “The Jungle Book”

Kids are spoiled when it comes to movies these days. If I compare what passed as Kids’ Movies when I was young (Benji, Willow, Ernest Goes to Camp) to what kids see today (Inside Out, Zootopia, Big Hero 6), I can’t help but get jealous. Even sweet and beautifully animated films like The Good Dinosaur get tossed into the “Meh” pile because they’re not as great as Wreck It Ralph or Frozen.

And now they have The Jungle Book. Sigh…it almost isn’t fair.

People have been asking me for months if this one is too intense for kids, which is understandable given the snake and tiger-heavy ads. My daughters and I saw The Jungle Book last night though, and can finally answer those questions. There are two things I should mention first, though. If you DO decide to see The Jungle Book, pay the extra money for IMAX-3D. It’s worth it. Also, forgive Lucy for being sassy and surly in this podcast. That kid needed to go to bed!

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.

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 →
