Remember how pleasantly surprised we all were by Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle when it opened in 2017? It became the surprise hit of that holiday season and is now one of those films that, if it happens to be on TV, I have to watch the whole dang thing. The follow-up, Jumanji: The Next Level, is opening December 13th and things are a little different this time. Watch the trailer below to find out how they worked in new cast members, Continue reading →
I joined Alanna Sarabia on Good Morning Texas today to talk about all the big films that are opening soon. I also gave her my review of Ant-Man and the Wasp and told her about some FREE MOVIE PASSES that I’m giving away. You can find those HERE, then click HERE to watch the segment. And THANKS to basketball Hall-of-Famer Nancy Lieberman for keeping me company in the Green Room and telling me that awesome story about Neve Campbell! (You can find out more about the Nancy Lieberman basketball camps for kids at http://nancyliebermancharities.org.)
I simply can’t get to every movie. This time of year gets especially tough because of my oldest daughter’s birthday, which just happened to fall on the night of the Rampage screening. She was totally disinterested in this movie, so it came down to a choice between celebrating-my-daughter’s-birthday and seeing-The-Rock’s-new-movie.
You know the choice I had to make.
Fortunately, I have friends like Brooke, who DID want to see Rampage. She even offered to take her 11-year-old son AND to write a review for me. This is what Brooke had to say about Rampage: Continue reading →
It’s not unusual for me to cry at movies. I’m an emotional person and tend to get very wrapped up in the story. Sometimes I’ll cry, not because the movie is sad, but because something so joyous and true is happening onscreen that I can stop myself. On very rare occasions, I’m still crying as I walk out of the theater and, to the eye-rolling dismay of my children, in the car as we drive home.
Sometimes I tear up even as I write the review, as I am right now for Moana. Continue reading →
Is it OK to talk about something other than politics, yet? I know everyone is still wound up about the election but I have something I think you’ll be interested in. They’re free passes to see Moana. Continue reading →
The ads for Central Intelligence say that sometimes you need a little Hart and a BIG Johnson. Makes you wonder if they didn’t just make the whole movie around that joke, right?
Well, the pairing of Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson certainly has fans excited, and so does the trailer featuring a pudgy, teenage version of “The Rock.” That might be worth the ticket price alone but lucky for us, we don’t have to pay for tickets! Just click HERE to snag your Central Intelligence passes, then watch the trailer again. And remember to get to the theater early! These will get you in for free but you’ll still need to get there in time to save your seat.
I was on Good Morning Texas today to talk about all the big movies that are coming out this month AND review The Conjuring 2. I also got to meet their brand new host Alanna Sarabia, who is so gorgeous that I just wanted to stare at her the whole time. Click HERE to watch the segment and don’t forget to cruise my Free Movie Passes page for FREEBIES!
I saw San Andreas last night with Richie Whitt and Rebekah Black, then we had pink, fluffy cocktails and chatted about it. Sybil Summers didn’t join us this week because she thought it looked like a stupid movie. SHE WAS WRONG!
You could be like Sybil and assume the worst, or you could listen to our podcast and find out for sure.
Make sure you grab free passes to see Melissa McCarthy in Spy with us NEXT week. You can do that by clicking HERE. Richie Whitt assumes THAT ONE will be bad but you know what happens when you ASSUME things, right? You make an Ass-Hat…or something.
I interviewed Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson years ago when he came through Dallas to promote The Mummy Returns. He is GIGANTIC and surprisingly cute and cuddly. He hugged me. Like one of those pick-you-up-and-SQUEEZE-you hugs. THEN he kissed me on the cheek. He did the same thing to just about every other woman in the office and was equally as loveable with all the dudes. That is why I will always have a bit of a thing for The Rock and am excited about seeing San Andreas next week. I’ve seen the trailers and it’s just the kind of squirm-in-your-seat blockbuster that will get us all pumped about summer. Continue reading →
I couldn’t see Furious 7 this week and I’m hating myself for it.
Not because I care so much about these movies. I don’t think I watched movies 2 through 6, even on basic cable because frankly, it’s not my thing. I was excited to see #7 though because I’ve heard nothing but praise for it and claims that it could be the biggest success story of 2015. Since I can’t post my own review, I’m posting a link to my friend James Wallace’s review. He wrote such a loving tribute to the film and franchise as a whole that I can’t imagine anyone topping it.
Plus, I’m super proud of James for picking up this gig at nerdist.com. Click the link below to read what he had to say about Furious 7 and the link below THAT to purchase tickets.
