Need something new to watch? Maybe another sofa activity that won’t lead to self-loathing. What? I was referring to your habit of eating cake icing directly from the tub. Or is that just me? Well, COVID-19 might be a horrific pandemic but it couldn’t have come at a better time, with all the TV there is to watch. I’m joking, of course, but you’ve wanted to catch up on the shows and movies people were talking about. Now you’ve got the time. Continue reading →
It’s January so I have the lowest-of-LOW expectations for any film coming out right now. I was surprised to see a Guy Ritchie movie was being released, and even more shocked by its sparkling cast (Hugh Grant, Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell, Charlie Hunnam and Henry Golding). Ritchie has directed some stinkers though (namely King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) so I assumed The Gentlemen would fall in that same column. Continue reading →
Off the top of your head, name the last Guy Ritchie movie to hit theaters? Think you know? It was actually the live-action version of Alladin, which surprised most of us by being really good. Ritchie is back in his familiar wheel-house though, with the British gangster-comedy The Gentlemen. Starring a cast of favorites, like Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell and Matthew McConaughey, it follows the sale of an English drug empire to a family of Oklahoma billionaires (which explains McConaughey’s involvement). Best of all, I have passes to see The Gentlemen in cities all over the state! Continue reading →
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Tim Burton. I loved him when he was making films like Edward Scissorhands and Ed Wood, but I still don’t know what to think of Dark Shadows. I also haven’t forgiven him for what he did to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, but you can read my heartbroken daughter’s review of it HERE (she has, for the record, forgiven Asa Butterfield though).
But SURELY Tim Burton wouldn’t ruin Dumbo!
This story about a floppy eared elephant is so sad and sweetly perfect that it hasn’t been touched since they animated it in 1941. Tim Burton wouldn’t attempt this without a solid plan in place, would he? It won’t matter either way if you see Dumbo EARLY and FOR FREE, and I have passes for screenings in Grapevine AND Dallas!

I can’t help but get excited when Denzel Washington has a new movie coming out AND it’s during Oscar Season. This time around, he stars as Roman J. Israel, Esq. an idealistic activist and attorney who is also on the spectrum (possibly Asperger’s). Roman loses his focus when he loses his job, until an ambitious lawyer (played by Colin Farrel) recruits Roman to his firm. It’s also when Roman devises a money-making scheme that changes his life forever. Sound like your thing? Then grab free passes to see Roman J. Israel, Esq. Continue reading →
The setting for The Beguiled is a girl’s school in Virginia during the Civil War. Young women are sheltered there from the horrors of war, when they take in a wounded soldier. The soldier is played by Colin Farrell so you know EXACTLY where this story is heading. He starts working his way through the ladies when something goes horribly awry, which is why you have to see The Beguiled. Continue reading →
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get my hopes WAY up for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It’s the latest from J.K. Rowling and introduces us to a whole new section of the Harry Potter universe, so OF COURSE I let my expectations run wild.
But did Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them live up to the promise or leave me disappointed? Continue reading →
My daughter has been asking for months, “Mom, when is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opening??? You’re taking us to that one, right?” It’s a ridiculous question because she knows I’m as excited to see it as she is. I also know that my daughters would stage a small but very shrill riot if I saw it with anyone but them.
I hope you’re pumped to see it too because I have free passes!!!
If YOU would like to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, click HERE to claim your passes, then go check your pantry. See, The North Texas Food Bank is sponsoring this screening and they want to provide a Fantastic Feast to a hungry family. That’s why they’re asking you to bring 3 canned goods to donate at the screening. They’ll give you a Fantastic Beasts goodie to say THANKS! So, grab your passes and then take a minute to watch the trailer with me. Is it weird that it gives me chills?
This week on Today with Kandace, I covered the latest from J.K. Rowling, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I can’t tell you how JAZZED I am about that movie! I also have a new DVD suggestion and a classic flick to share with your kids, though it might turn them vegan. Remember to catch Today with Kandace weekday mornings at 8:30 on KXTA 21. (And yeah, I have no idea what’s going on with my mouth in the picture above. Looks like I just ate a lemon.)
