FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Home Again” EARLY & FOR FREE

Wouldn’t it be cool to be Reese Witherspoon and make movies based on what kind of mood you were in?
“I feel like making a movie out of my favorite book!”
She makes the Oscar-nominated Wild.
“I feel like living in Monterey with my girlfriends for a while!”
She makes Big Little Lies.
“I feel like making out with a super-adorable 26-year-old dude!”
Reese Witherspoon makes Home Again.

In this one, Witherspoon plays a single mom who lets 3 sweet, 20-something-year-old guys move in with her and, yes, she hooks up with one of them (Pico Alexander). If you’d like to see Home Again EARLY and FOR FREE, Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “It” EARLY & FOR FREE

Oh man, you already know how excited I am about this one. I’ve been talking about It for months, now. I told you about my college-nights with the Stephen King book and how it ruined dorm rooms for me forever (read that HERE). I followed that up by talking about It on essentially every TV and radio appearance I’ve made since (you can watch one of those HERE). And after all those months of flipping out over It, it’s finally here. If you want passes to see It 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.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Patti Cake$” EARLY & FOR FREE

I often call August the “armpit of movie season,” but that’s not actually the case. While we might see some pretty sad wide-release options, independent film flourishes this time of year. Take for instance, PATTI CAKE$. Time Magazine calls it an “instant classic” while Variety says, “One of the year’s most endearing discoveries.” It’s also been tearing up the film festival circuit and has already won a stack of awards. So, still think you don’t want watch Patti Dombrowski fight to become rap star in PATTI CAKE$? Why don’t you take a look at the trailer below and THEN decide? Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” EARLY & FOR FREE

If The Hitman’s Bodyguard movie trailer was any more fun, it’d need to come with adult diapers to catch that unexpected tinkle from giggling too hard. Too gross? Well, just watch the trailer below and then tell me in wrong. Continue reading →

The Glass Castle

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “The Glass Castle” EARLY & FOR FREE

Those of us who’ve read Jeannette Walls’ memoir The Glass Castle can tell you how beautiful, poetic and enraging it can be, all at the same time. The book tells of Walls’ turbulent upbringing, which was in constant turmoil due her to parents’ persistent issues. Woody Harrelson plays Walls’ alcoholic father and Naomi Watts portrays her depressive mom, while Brie Larson is Jeannette Walls as an adult. That’s a handful of my favorite actors so hopefully this big-screen version will live up to the book. Wanna see it EARLY & FOR FREE? Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “The Dark Tower” EARLY & FOR FREE

It isn’t easy for Stephen King fans, when we hear they’re making one of his books into a movie. We know that everything he writes will probably end up in theaters one day, but we’ve been let down so many times before.
It’s like the moment when your kid tells you she wants to do a hula-hoop routine at the school talent show. You smile and try to be encouraging, but you’ve seen her drop that hula-hoop WAY more times than you’ve seen her keep it up.
“Are you SURE, honey,” you ask her, hoping that she’ll change her mind. That’s when she senses your concern and asks, “WHY Mommy? Why SHOULDN’T I do a hula-hoop routine for the talent show?”
You, being the concerned parent, want to warn her about all the horrible things that could go wrong and how the other kids might laugh at her. You want to remind her that she’s actually not that great with a hula-hoop but you can’t bring yourself to do it.
So what happens?
You watch in horror as she drops her hula-hoop so many times during the talent show that the other parents think it’s part of her act. (True story.)
What does this have to do with the big-screen version Stephen King’s The Dark Tower? I’m not really sure but I feel much better now so thanks for letting me get that off my chest.
If you’d like to see The Dark Tower, starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey EARLY and FOR FREE though, I can help. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Detroit” EARLY & FOR FREE

I’ve got it bad for Kathryn Bigelow.
Not only did she direct and co-write two of my favorite movies (The Hurt Locker & Zero Dark Thirty), she also ran against ex-husband James Cameron for the 2010 Best Director Oscar and beat him. That has to be the greatest case of revenge EVER.
I’d get behind anything Kathryn Bigelow did but her latest movie, Detroit, looks outstanding. She has re-teamed with writing partner Mark Boal, to tell the true story of the 1967 Detroit Rebellion. Bigelow also packed the cast with powerhouses like John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, Jason Mitchell and John Krasinski. She even found a spot for Hannah Murray, whom we can all agree plays an adorable Gilly in Game of Thrones. So, want to join me at an EARLY and COMPLETELY FREE screening of Detroit? Continue reading →
