FREE-MOVIE-PASSES: See “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women” EARLY & FOR FREE

If you’re anything like me, you might be tempted to dismiss Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, simply based on that lame title. You absolutely SHOULDN’T dismiss it though, and here’s why.
Professor William Moulton Marston (played by Luke Evans) was the creator of the Wonder Woman comics, and he was inspired by a dirty-but-awesome little secret he was keeping. Watch the trailer below Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEW: Can “American Ultra” Turn Jesse Eisenberg Into an Action Hero?

One of the perks of being a Film Critic is that I get to take friends to the movie screenings with me. They love it and usually repay me with cocktails afterwards. Sometimes though, I can’t FIND anyone to see a movie with me because no one is interested in it. That was the case with American Ultra, so I had to see it alone. One friend even said, “The one with Kristen Stewart? Ugh, PASS!” That surprised me because I was excited about this movie. I’ve been a fan of Jesse Eisenberg ever since Zombieland and American Ultra seemed like the perfect vehicle for his talents.

Eisenberg plays Mike, a hapless stoner who is perfectly content working at a small town convenient store. He lucked into a gorgeous stoner-girlfriend named Phoebe (Stewart), who is way out of his league but takes care of him anyway. They live in slacker Utopia until the day Mike is “activated” and his past as a Sleeper Agent comes back to haunt him. This is where the fun really kicks in because Mike is even more surprised by his new skills than the audience. Mike and Phoebe don’t have time to explore them though because someone wants to kill them both and time is running out. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “American Ultra” with Me for FREE!

You might think that the whole Sleeper-Super-Agent idea but has been done to death, but Hollywood found a legitimate way to update it. What if the Sleeper-Agent in question grew up to be a slacker-stoner who lived with his girlfriend and smoked out all day? Jesse Eisenberg plays Mike, who works at a convienent store until the day he is activated. Imagine his surprise when he discovers he’s a deadly weapon who can kill people with little more than a spoon. Kristen Stewart plays his girlfriend Phoebe, who has to call on her own inner-tough-girl to help Mike survive when he becomes the target.

I can’t help but get excited about this because I’ve loved Jesse Eisenberg since Zombieland. I also relish any moment that Kristen Steward seems likeable. Sorry but I couldn’t stand her as “Bella.” I always wonder if the reason everyone hates Stewart so much is because “Bella” was such a crappy character. Maybe she’s awesome in real life but was simply forced to play an awful role for too long. Well, it’s not like she and I will have a “Girls Night” anytime soon so I guess I’ll never know.

The point I’m trying very poorly to make is that I have free passes to see American Ultra next week! Click HERE for those and then take a minute to watch the trailer. See you at the screening and I’ll let you know if that Julie/Kristen Date-Night happens anythime soon.

MOVIE REVIEW: “Me And Earl And The Dying Girl” (This Is Gonna Hurt)

Sometimes you fall in love with something even though you KNOW you shouldn’t. You go into it knowing that your heart will be broken, so you TRY to not get emotionally attached. Then, without even realizing it, you are head over heels and completely committed. That was my experience with Me and Earl and The Dying Girl. I knew immediately what was going to happen, but I let it hurt me anyway, so I guess I have no one to blame but myself. Continue reading →
