FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” EARLY & FOR FREE

I’ll never forget the first time I read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and that one particular scene. I wasn’t enjoying the book and had only picked it up again because my hair-dresser insisted.
“Just wait until she gets her revenge,” he said. “You’re gonna lose it!”
He wasn’t kidding. I was on the elliptical at the gym when I came to that part. I remember it clearly because I yelled “HOLY SH*T,” then sat on the floor while I re-read the passage a handful of times.
I loved both versions of the movie (and both versions of Lisbeth Salander) but I never quite recovered from that.
We have a new Lisbeth in The Girl in the Spider’s Web, since Claire Foy has taken over (she’s already getting great reviews). Sverrir Gudnason is our new Mikael Blomkvist (I’ll miss Daniel Craig) and Fede Alvarez (Don’t Breathe, Evil Dead) is now directing instead of David Fincher. Yes, we have a whole new crew at the wheel so who wants to see The Girl in the Spider’s Web EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEW: You’ll Be Holding Your Breath in “Don’t Breathe”

The less you know about Don’t Breathe walking into it, the better off you’ll be. I’m going to try my hardest to review this movie without telling you too much, but I’ve been known to spoil movies in the past. You’ve been warned.

Rocky, Alex and Money are small-time burglars who use Alex’s ties to a Security Firm to break into homes. They think they’ve found an easy mark with an old, blind man who is hoarding large sums of cash in his home. He turns out to be a Gulf War veteran though, who won’t turn over the goods as easily as expected. Guns are drawn, the lights go out, and all hell breaks loose. Continue reading →
