FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” On Me!

Everything about Whiskey Tango Foxtrot makes me tingly.

It’s based on the real experiences of Kim Barker, a journalist who worked in Afghanistan and Pakistan during Operation Enduring Freedom. Barker wrote a book called The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan and Tina Fey’s production company Little Stranger picked it up. The screenplay was written by Robert Carlock (30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) AND it’s produced by Lorne Michaels. Best of all, Tina Fey PLAYS Kim Barker and she has a weird affair with Martin Freeman (who will ALWAYS be Bilbo Baggins in my book). Pretty much nothing but gold there, right? Well, just in case it isn’t, why don’t we all see Whiskey Tango Foxtrot FOR FREE? I have passes to a screening on March 1st so click HERE to snag those and then watch the trailer. I mean, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot HAS to be good, right? Oh shit, I just got chills watching the trailer again.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Zoolander 2” On Me!

Wanna know a secret?

I’ve never seen Zoolander. I don’t know how the Hell it happened, but I somehow got this far in my life without seeing the Magnum, the Ferrari, or even THE BLUE STEEL. People are always shocked to hear this and in some ways, I feel like I shouldn’t even bother now. Maybe it could be my thing. Well, I’d better decide soon because the Zoolander 2 screening is this upcoming Tuesday and I’VE GOT FREE PASSES! Just click HERE for those and then watch the trailer below. Omigod, we have to go, just to watch Benedict Cumberbatch play ALL!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “How to Be Single” On Me!

I saw the trailer for How to Be Single a few months ago and it made me laugh so hard that I immediately shared it with everyone I knew. Rebel Wilson is my Spirit Animal and I’m surprised by how much I dig Dakota Johnson. She was the only good thing about Fifty Shades of Grey, and she was fantastic in Black Mass. Unfortunately, everyone was too freaked out by Johnny Depp’s make-up to notice.

I guess How to Be Single is about a bunch of single women running around New York City. It’s like an updated Sex and the City, but without the designer shoes, and with LESLIE MANN. She was so adorable in The Other Woman, that she was actually hotter than Kate Upton. Don’t bother telling me I’m wrong about that, because I’M NOT. Now, I KNOW you want to go so click HERE to grab those free passes and then watch the trailer below. Oh my God, I really need to get drunk with Rebel Wilson!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Deadpool” On Me!

Can I tell you how ticked-off my 11-year-old is about NOT GETTING TO SEE Deadpool? She simply can’t believe that anyone would release an R-rated Marvel Movie, and though I sympathize with her…I love it.

According to the press release Ryan Reynolds plays “former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.” I don’t relish the idea of what happens to Ryan Reynolds’ pretty face, but this looks like loads of fun and GUESS WHO HAS FREE PASSES! The screening is February 12th and YES, there will be a line to get in so show up early. Click HERE for your passes, then take a minute to watch the trailer. Do it AWAY from the kids though because it, like the movie, IS RATED-R…which means they can’t see it. (evil laugh)

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Pride, Prejudice and Zombies” On Me!

Not very long ago, I wrote an article about the movies I’m REALLY excited to see in the next 6 months. If you missed it, you can find that by clicking HERE (and you should because I had a blast writing it).
One of the films I gushed about was Pride, Prejudice and Zombies, which is obviously the Jane Austen story, but with some zombies thrown in for good measure. I’m thrilled about this because it sounds absolutely ridiculous (in the best possible way) and because it stars Lily James and Lena Headey, my 2 most recent girl-crushes.
The screening is February 2nd and you can get your passes by clicking HERE, but get there EARLY. These passes will get you in for free but they won’t reserve your seats. Something tells me that EVERYONE will want to see this one, so get in line ASAP. It’s at the AMC Northpark so at least you can get overpriced drinks from the bar. Print your passes and then watch the trailer below.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “The Forest,” About Japan’s REAL Suicide Forest

My niece Caroline came to visit recently and was gushing about a movie she’s dying to see. It was something about a woman who goes searching for her twin sister in a real-life area of Japan called The Suicide Forest, but that’s all I remember. Honestly, I was overwhelmed with Star Wars: The Force Awakens fever at the time so I really only heard about 35% of what she said. Here I am though, only a few weeks later, getting REALLY excited about The Forest.

This film stars Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & 2) as Sara, a woman whose twin sister (also played by Dormer) goes missing in Japan’s Aokigahara Forest. It’s known as The Suicide Forest because of the number of people who go there each year, to kill themselves (it’s 2nd only to the San Francisco Bridge in annual suicides). Legends claim that the woods are haunted and that not everyone who entered at the base of Mount Fuji actually planned to kill themselves. It’s just what happened, after the spirits got to them.

Even the stars of the film were overwhelmed by the Aokigahara Forest. Taylor Kinney (Chicago Fire) plays Sara‘s friend Aiden, and he got a little freaked out when his compass and cell-phone stopped working. Plus, the remains of some of the people who took their lives are still there, scattered amongst the trees. Director Jason Zada said guides who took him into the forest rubbed salt on their backs, so the souls of those left there couldn’t ride them out. Zada rubbed salt on his back too, just in case.

It sounds like great material, but will The Forest be a great movie? Find out for yourself by printing out THIS PASS and then watch the trailer for The Forest below. DON’T FORGET: This pass will get you and a guest in for free but it DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOUR SEAT. Get there early or your date might want to drag YOU into a haunted forest!

Brooklyn-2015-3

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See the Oscar-Buzzy “Brooklyn” On Me!

I have a friend who likes to say, “They don’t make movies with GOOD STORIES these days. No one makes Seabiscuit anymore!” While I don’t totally agree with him, I know he’s not the only person who feels that way. That’s why everyone’s going to be super excited about Brooklyn, which opens nationwide on Friday, November 20th. That’s the same weekend that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 comes out so it would be easy to overlook Brooklyn. DON’T DO THAT because it’s already one of highest reviewed films of the year. Some critics are even saying that it’s impossible to NOT like Brooklyn, which almost sounds like a challenge, doesn’t it?

Brooklyn tells the story of a young, Irish immigrant who lands in 1950’s New York. She finds happiness and love but soon has important, life-altering choices to make. Saoirse Ronan plays Ellis, the young immigrant and the rumor mill says she’s guaranteed an Oscar nomination for this role. Guess I’ll have to learn how to pronounce her name after all.

The best part of all of this is that I have free passes to see Brooklyn so you can STILL save your ticket money for Katniss! Just click HERE for those, then take a minute to watch the trailer. Dammit, I’m already weepy!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Spotlight” Early & For Free!!!

I saw the movie Spotlight a few months ago and have been talking about it ever since. You think I’m kidding? Ask a friend of mine, ANY FRIEND OF MINE and they will tell you that I can’t shut up about Spotlight. Why? Because it’s awesome…a damn near PERFECT movie, that’s why. One you will definitely hear mentioned on Oscar night, as well. Yeah, THAT’S how good it is.

Spotlight is about the Boston Globe reporters who discovered a massive Catholic Church cover-up. They were the ones who told the world about predatory priests and how they were being protected by their churches. It’s based on actual events (isn’t every good movie right now?) and yes, you will probably be angry all over again when you walk out of the theater. You’ll also be happy though, because you paid nothing to see one of the best movies of 2015!

All you have to do is click HERE to grab your free movie passes. I actually begged for these because I figured it was a nice way to pay back everyone who had to listen to me blab on and on about Spotlight. Take a minute to watch the trailer too because damn…even IT is phenomenal!
