Movie Review Round-Up: DEEPWATER HORIZON, MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, QUEEN OF KATWE & MASTERMINDS

Deepwater Horizon – This movie is completely split down the middle for me.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Queen of Katwe” ON ME!

It tickles me to no end when I have passes to something TRULY SPECIAL. I especially love it when that truly special something is a film you can share with your KIDS. That’s why I’m tickled pink about these free passes to see The Queen of Katwe.

This Disney flick tells the true story of a Phiona, who is selling corn on the streets of Uganda when she discovers the game of Chess. Her instructor (David Oyelowo) realizes she’s a natural and her mother (Lupita Nyong’O) will do anything possible to help Phiona become an international chess champion. The Queen of Katwe is packed with wonderful performances as well as great messages about humble beginnings and strength of spirit, so you should definitely share it with the cool kid in your life. Even better, I have passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Grab your free passes to see The Queen of Katwe by clicking HERE, then watch the trailer below. Oh dear, you know we’re in trouble when I’m crying through the trailer!
