MOVIE REVIEWS: Does “Justice League” Offer DC Redemption?

The one massive downside to all of these superhero movies is that, after a while, they all start to look the same.
Even the characters are interchangeable: Batman is the money/gadget guy (Iron Man) while Aquaman is the rebellious God (Thor). The Flash is the joke-cracking youngster (Spiderman), Cyborg is the half man, half something-else-entirely (The Hulk) and, of course, Wonder Woman is the beacon of goodness (Captain America). This doesn’t mean that Justice League is a bad movie. I don’t think it could be BAD with this cast and this much material (introducing the League, fighting evil AND mourning a dead Superman). No, Justice League isn’t a bad movie but it does feel awfully familiar. It also highlights a huge difference in the way Marvel and DC tell their stories and why the Marvel films are consistently stronger: Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Justice League” EARLY & FOR FREE

Is it weird that I don’t really CARE if the new Justice League movie is good? My expectations are so low now, after Batman v. Superman and then the shocking let-down that was Suicide Squad. Wonder Woman was a refreshing surprise, but I don’t know if she and that golden-lasso are strong enough to save this whole movie. Jason Mamoa plays Aquaman in Justice League though and, if I were completely honest with you, I’d probably say that’s enough for me. It’s always better to see a potentially disappointing movie for free though, right? Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” EARLY & FOR FREE!

My daughter has been asking for months, “Mom, when is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opening??? You’re taking us to that one, right?” It’s a ridiculous question because she knows I’m as excited to see it as she is. I also know that my daughters would stage a small but very shrill riot if I saw it with anyone but them.
I hope you’re pumped to see it too because I have free passes!!!

If YOU would like to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, click HERE to claim your passes, then go check your pantry. See, The North Texas Food Bank is sponsoring this screening and they want to provide a Fantastic Feast to a hungry family. That’s why they’re asking you to bring 3 canned goods to donate at the screening. They’ll give you a Fantastic Beasts goodie to say THANKS! So, grab your passes and then take a minute to watch the trailer with me. Is it weird that it gives me chills?

TRAILER PORN: “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” EXCLUSIVE SNEAK

Are you even capable of being excited about anything other than Star Wars: The Force Awakens right now? I get it. I feel the exact same way but they’re releasing a new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice tonight and it’s hard NOT to get a little jazzed about it (Yes, even IF you’re still pissed at Ben Affleck for the whole nanny thing). That’s going to air on Jimmy Kimmel Live at 11:35/10:35 Central and they even made an exclusive sneak to get us pumped. It doesn’t show Wonder Woman though, so I don’t think it really counts.

Catch the full NEW trailer tonight and if you somehow missed the full-length Comic-Con trailer, take a little look at THIS:
