MOMMY-MOVIE-REVIEW: What Can You Expect From “Wonder Woman”

You’ve probably heard by now that Wonder Woman is a good movie. Better than good. In fact, I gave it an A, which is a grade I don’t readily hand out. Director Patty Jenkins finally delivered a proper superhero flick to DC, but the next big question PARENTS will ask is, “Can my KIDS see Wonder Woman?”

There are a handful of factors to consider before taking your youngsters, so let me break them down for you. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Wonder Woman” EARLY & FOR FREE

I always say that lowered expectations are a movie’s best friend, but Wonder Woman is making that next to impossible for me. How am I supposed to keep my cool about the first female superhero movie since 2005 (that was Elektra), which just happens to be directed by a woman (Patty Jenkins, who also directed Monster)? I’m also a huge fan of Gal Gadot, who is taking on the role of Diana in this origin story. Gadot is so much more than a pretty face, having served as a combat trainer in the Israel Defense Forces. She performs most of her own stunts, is a motorcycle enthusiast and is the mother of two little girls. Both of Gal Gadot’s grandparents are Holocaust survivors as well, so the mantle of Superhero seems all the more fitting.
My daughters are also pumped about Wonder Woman, having never seen a superhero movie about a GIRL in their lives. I’d say it’s about time. So, who wants passes to see Wonder Woman EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

PODCAST: The “Julie Says So” Movie Review of THE FINEST HOURS

I sat down with Rebekah Black and Film Critic Matt Mungle (The Mungle Show) after watching Chris Pine’s new movie, The Finest Hours. If you have any plans to see it, you should probably listen to our podcast first. You should also try forgive us for the trash we talked while taping it. I started off by gossiping about a Casey Affleck lawsuit I couldn’t entirely remember (here’s the story: http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20404992,00.html) and then we said some really nasty stuff about Chris Pine’s performance. Oh yeah, we’re going straight to Hell for that one. We also laughed so hard that I repeatedly scared the other people sitting in the Food Court, so sorry about that. Here’s our review and watch out because SPOILER ALERT!
