The “Julie Says So” TOP 5 MOVIES to See Right Now

There’s a radio-host that I review movies for and every week he says the same thing:

“There’s nothing but crap in the theaters right now! When is something GOOD coming out?”

I know it isn’t BLOCKBUSTER season, but there are still some great films you shouldn’t miss seeing on the big screen. I put together a list of my Top 5 Movies to See Right Now, for those of us who want to get out of the heat and into a theater (Look, it’s still in the 90’s here in Dallas so don’t tell me about that snow you’re getting in Breckenridge, OK?).

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Battle of the Sexes” EARLY & FOR FREE

Battle of the Sexes might look like a blatant Oscar-grab, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Emma Stone stars in this one as Billy Jean King, who was number one in the world when she played a Battle of the Sexes tennis match against former champ, Bobby Riggs. Steve Carell plays the male-chauvinist-and-proud-of-it Riggs and, from the trailer, appears to be having a ball. Want to see Battle of the Sexes EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

JULIE SAYS SO Fall Movie Preview on “Good Morning Texas”

I absolutely LOVE IT when I look at the calendar and see nothing but great movies on the horizon. That’s exactly what I was talking about on Good Morning Texas today. I joined Jane McGarry (who apparently cranks up rap music when she isn’t on TV) and Alanna Sarabia (who’s so young, she wasn’t sure who John McEnroe was…but we love her anyway!) to talk about Patti Cake$, Mother!, Battle of the Sexes, Home Again, 9/11, American Made and the movie I simply can’t stop talking about, It. I even had some juicy gossip to share about Jennifer Lawrence’s latest fling and our newest Pennywise the Clown, who scared some child actors on the set so badly, he left them crying. Click HERE to watch the segment, then visit the Free Movie Passes page to see what I’m giving away next. In fact, I should have tickets to see It very soon so check that page DAILY.

Mommy-Movie-Review: Is “La La Land” OK for Kids?

I hear the same thing from my friends-with-kids all the time:

“We just can’t go to movies anymore, unless they’re animated.”

I know the feeling, and wouldn’t see about 99% of the films I DO if it weren’t for this whole Film Critic thing. There are plenty of movies out there that families can watch together though, even ones not marketed as “Kid Flicks.” If you don’t mind sparse profanity or a few hints of sexuality, the doors will open wide to great films you’d never expect, like La La Land.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “LA LA LAND” EARLY & FOR FREE

I started a minor riot on my Facebook page yesterday. No, it wasn’t about that. I just admitted that I don’t like musicals and everyone attacked, saying they were outraged and that we could no longer be friends. I thought I might have to say something political, just to calm them all down. The only reason I mentioned my disdain for musicals is because I saw LA LA LAND and loved it. Yes, I adored every single second of that movie even though Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling sing and dance the whole way through it. That might sound ridiculous to anti-musical people like ME, but LA LA LAND is also the top contender for Best Picture this year. So, do you want to see it EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
