The TOP 5 MOVIES to See this Thanksgiving

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 →

Knives Out

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Knives Out” EARLY & FOR FREE

There are so many reasons for you to see Knives Out. First of all, see it because it’s an unexpected Murder-Mystery/Comedy/Social Commentary from Writer-Director Rian Johnson (who has clearly used his time since Star Wars: The Last Jedi wisely). See Knives Out also because you won’t often find a cast this solid, with Chris Evans, Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christopher Plummer, LaKeith Stanfield, Toni Collette and SO many more taking part. Finally, see Knives Out because I saw it last week and had so much fun, I just giddy-grinned all the way through it. And best of all, see Knives Out because I have passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →

Infinity War & Kids

Mommy Movie Review: Is “Avengers: Infinity War” OK for Kids?

If your kids are fans of the Marvel universe, they’re probably begging to see the new Avengers: Infinity War. This latest addition to the series is rated PG-13, like most Marvel films, and offers the same amount of violence and profanity we’ve come to expect from them. If your kids have seen any of the other Avengers films, nothing in this one will be new to them.
There is ONE THING about Avengers: Infinity War though, that sets it apart from the others.
***SPOILER-ALERT***
It’s not a big spoiler and doesn’t give away any plot points, but if you don’t want to know ANYTHING about the movie in any way, don’t read any further. Continue reading →

Mommy-Movie-Review: Is “Spider-Man: Homecoming” OK for Kids?

Before we discuss taking your kids to see Spider-Man: Homecoming, we should probably address how YOU feel about it. Odds are, you’re still confused about the need for a reboot (especially since they JUST rebooted it with Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker) and, as a result, you’re apathetic about the whole thing.

Let me clue you in to a few solid reasons for you to NOT be apathetic about Spider-Man: Homecoming. Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEWS: “Gifted” & “Going in Style”

I couldn’t get to the Gifted screening this week, despite my admittedly-embarrassing love for Chris Evans. Sorry, but I’m a busy Mom and sometimes sh*t happens, which is why I’m grateful for my movie-buddy Rebekah Black. She was able to see Gifted and write a review for me, though she clearly expected it to suck. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Gifted” EARLY & FOR FREE

We can all pretend that I’m excited about Gifted because I have tremendous respect for Chris Evans’ body of work. I’ll admit that it’s nice to see him OUT of the Captain America suit and working with Octavia Spencer again (they were in Snowpiercer together), but really, I’d watch that man in anything.

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.

Mommy-Movie-Review “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (But Can My KID Watch It?)

New in theaters this week is the highly anticipated sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. If your family is like mine, this movie and whether or not my kids can see it has been a constant topic of discussion. Fortunately, I already saw the film so I can give you the low-down. Continue reading →

PODCAST: I Drove ALL THE WAY to Plano for the “Zazza Mornings” Podcast!

I went to see Tony Zazza because he SAID he wanted to talk about the Avengers: Age of Ultron. HE LIED! Evidently, Tony had a “bone to pick” with me and boy, did he ever! I thought he might jump across the desk & stab me with a Sharpie at one point. Click HERE and go to Podcast #24 to hear what happened but WATCH OUT for that Tony Zazza. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry!
