FREE MOVIE PASSES: See Disney’s “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” EARLY & FOR FREE

I remember when I first saw Maleficent in 2014, there was a woman at the screening who cried all through the ending.
Oh wait, that was me. I don’t know why, but the story of her tortured life and Maleficent’s ultimate love for her goddaughter really breaks me down. I think I’ve got a soft spot for Angelina Jolie, too. I see parallels between her real-life reputation and Jolie’s onscreen character, since they’re both as reviled as they are revered. But does she officially hit the dark-side in this film?
So, who wants to see Disney’s Maleficient: Mistress of Evil EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

Ben Affleck

Free Movie Passes: See “Live By Night” EARLY & FOR FREE

Ben Affleck has been a busy dude lately. Sure, we all knew he was writing and directing the new Batman movie, but did you know Ben was working on a Dennis Lehane adaptation, as well? Yep, Ben Affleck wrote the screenplay for and directed Live By Night, and since he didn’t already have enough on his plate, he went ahead and starred in it, too. Affleck even screen-tested for the part because Lehane didn’t think he could play the son of police chief who descends into crime. If you would like to see Live By Night EARLY and FOR FREE, click HERE to get your passes, then watch the trailer below. Now, GET BACK TO WORK BEN!

MOVIE REVIEW: Bryan Cranston Channels “Trumbo”

It’s hard for me to tell if I love a movie that Bryan Cranston is in or if I just love Bryan Cranston. I’ve adored that man for years, even as the tighty-whitey Dad on Malcolm in the Middle. That’s part of the reason I’m struggling to review the movie Trumbo. Cranston is in every scene, hunching his shoulders, smoking cigarettes and sputtering lines that only he could get away with. He doesn’t steal the show because he IS the show and at times, it’s distracting.

Bryan Cranston plays Dalton Trumbo, a Hollywood screenwriter who was blacklisted in the 1940’s for being a Communist. He and other writers, known as The Hollywood 10, were banished (Trumbo even did jail time) and forced to write under pseudonyms to make money. That is when Trumbo penned 2 Oscar winning films, and under different names. Continue reading →
