Top 8 Movies to See RIGHT NOW

I’ve had multiple friends reach out to me lately, asking what movies they should see. Some are looking to entertain kids who are out of school and some are finally getting out for a date-night, but none of them want to waste their time and cash.

So what should you be seeing right now, in the heat of Summer Movie Season?

Here is my Top 8 List but understand, this doesn’t mean these movies are GREAT. They’re just your best-bets right now, so adjust your expectations accordingly. Continue reading →

Talking MAY MOVIES on “Good Morning Texas”

I joined Jane McGarry on Good Morning Texas today to talk about all the big new movies that are coming out this month. Yes, Captain America: Civil War will probably own the box-office for a while but there are several other flicks you should add to your Must See List. Click HERE to watch the Good Morning Texas segment, and remember to check out my Free Movie Passes page. You never know what I might be giving away!

I also need to send out a huge THANK YOU to Tamara Gaudin from tgstylist.com for dressing me today. Tamara pulled together some fantastic stuff from the Nordstrom at NorthPark Center and she can do the same for you! Find Tamara by clicking HERE and tell her I sent you!

PODCAST: “Captain America: Civil War” Review for TRENDING TODAY USA

I’ve been covering movies for Rusty Humphries on Trending Today USA (USA Radio Networks) for months now, and I have to admit to loving the guy. I have a tendency to like anyone who likes ME, and Rusty doesn’t hide the fact that he enjoys having me on. I always like chatting with him but this week was extra special because Rusty just picked up WGST in Atlanta, GA as an affiliate. See, I grew up in Atlanta and though I started my radio career there, I haven’t been on-the-air in Georgia since 1996. That’s why I was about to burst today, when my review of Captain America: Civil War aired on WGST for the first time. It’s even more appropriate that it happened right before Mother’s Day because my Mom would’ve LOVED this. She’s no longer with us, but she would’ve been so happy to hear me back on-the-air in ATL. Click HERE to listen to my review and think of my sweet Mom when you do.

Mom & my inexcusably fat cat Brer, who is also no longer with us. Possibly due to his all-brisket diet.

MOMMY-MOVIE-REVIEW: Is “Captain America: Civil War” OK for Kids?


Those of us who have MARVEL fans for kids have some big decisions to make this weekend. Oh, its NOT whether or not to see Captain America: Civil War. No, that’s definitely going to happen because we’re just as excited to see it as our kids. No, we have to decide when and where we’ll see it, and IF we’ll spend the extra cash for full-blown IMAX 3D.

See, we wouldn’t miss Captain America: Civil War if The Hulk himself was blocking the door, so this blog isn’t for people like us.

No, I want to talk to all the other parents out there who DON’T watch the MARVEL movies with their kids. If you have little ones who have no interest, you’re excused. Go watch Bubble Guppies and eat Cheerios with them but for the rest of you, why? Continue reading →

Julie Says So “Captain America: Civil War” Movie Review (How Ant Man Stole the Show)

I saw Captain American: Civil War last night and, I’m not gonna lie, I was crazy pumped. It was extra special though, because I got to see it with my three favorite movie buddies; Rebekah Black and my daughters, Emma and Lucy. You can hear what we thought about the movie in the podcast below and let me be clear. Ant Man didn’t exactly steal the show, but, in a split second, he managed to become our favorite Avenger. Enjoy our review and remember to share your own thoughts on the movie in the Comments, once you’ve seen Captain America: Civil War.

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 →
