Before you roll your eyes and tell me the world doesn’t need another Transformers movie, do us both a favor and watch the Transformers: The Last Knight trailer below. I have no idea what the HELL is going on but it looks kind of…dare I say it…GOOD? It won’t matter either way if you get to see it EARLY and FOR FREE though, right? Continue reading →
My daughter just asked me what we’re doing tomorrow. We’re not even a week into Summer Break and they’re already bored asking for itineraries. Fortunately, I have loads of Free Movie Passes to give away this summer, including these tickets to an early screening of Cars 3. You can bring up to 3 kids with you too, which means you can take your whole posse OR relieve a friend of theirs. Continue reading →
Rough Night stars Scarlett Johansson, Zoë Kravitz, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell and Ilana Glazer and I would love a night out with any of them. Well, maybe not Scarlett Johansson. She seems like that one really hot friend who goes out with you but spends the whole night texting her boyfriend. Scarlett would sit in the corner ignoring everyone while Kate, Ilana, Jillian and Zoë planned something wild, fun, and probably illegal…like killing a stripper. BY ACCIDENT, of course! So, who wants to see Rough Night EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Child actors freak me out. Especially the really good ones. I mean, where are they pulling that emotion from? Two of my favorite young actors are teaming up this month for a movie called The Book of Henry. Jaeden Lieberher plays Henry, who tries to help a classmate deal with a dangerous secret. His little brother Peter (Jacob Tremblay) and mother (Naomi Watts) end up playing parts in Henry’s daring rescue plan. You remember Jaeden as the Bill Murray’s young pal in St. Vincent and Jacob Tremblay gave a heartbreaking (and Oscar worthy) performance in Room. Their new movie opens June 16th but you can see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →
No, it isn’t Boss Baby. It isn’t Baby Mama, either. While we’re at it, Baby Driver isn’t Bridget Jones’s Baby, Rosemary’s Baby or any other BABY movie that would make you readily dismiss it. Baby Driver is actually the latest from Writer/Director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs the World) and it tells the story of a young get-away driver who is pulled into a dangerous heist. Ansel Egort plays Baby alongside a cast including Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey, Flea, Jon Hamm and a whole host of other people you’d like to have drinks with. If you still aren’t interested in Baby Driver, know that critics are FLIPPING OUT over it. Here’s just one of the raves from Jada Yuan at Vulture.com:
“Plays out like blasting your coolest friend’s record collection in your car at 100 mph on the Atlanta freeway while cops close in on all sides – essentially what happens in the movie again and again, to always-riveting effect.”
So, NOW do you want to see Baby Driver EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Are you one of those people who rolls their eyes at the big blockbusters that come out this time of year? Would you prefer something quiet, but filled with dread and possibly…a little sex? Then YOU should grab passes to see My Cousin Rachel, starring Rachel Weisz as an Englishwoman who may or may not be a seductress/murderer. It’s based on a Daphne Du Maurier novel, who also wrote what became Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca and The Birds. My favorite part of this movie is that Rachel’s cousin, Phillip, falls in love with her. He’s played by Sam Claflin, who is a full 17-years-younger than Rachel Weisz. Continue reading →
I always say that lowered expectations are a movie’s best friend, but Wonder Woman is making that next to impossible for me. How am I supposed to keep my cool about the first female superhero movie since 2005 (that was Elektra), which just happens to be directed by a woman (Patty Jenkins, who also directed Monster)? I’m also a huge fan of Gal Gadot, who is taking on the role of Diana in this origin story. Gadot is so much more than a pretty face, having served as a combat trainer in the Israel Defense Forces. She performs most of her own stunts, is a motorcycle enthusiast and is the mother of two little girls. Both of Gal Gadot’s grandparents are Holocaust survivors as well, so the mantle of Superhero seems all the more fitting.
My daughters are also pumped about Wonder Woman, having never seen a superhero movie about a GIRL in their lives. I’d say it’s about time. So, who wants passes to see Wonder Woman EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
If I’m being perfectly honest, I’d admit that I haven’t been a fan of Johnny Depp for years now. I’m not entirely sure why that is. Maybe he did too many stinkers like Mordecai and Dark Shadows, or maybe it’s just been too long since I’ve seen him without wigs and make-up. Whatever the reason, I no longer love Johnny Depp UNLESS he’s playing Captain Jack Sparrow. I even liked the last Pirates of the Caribbean: Stranger Tides (one of the few critics who DID), because of the delicious back-and-forth between Captain Jack and his ex-girlfriend, Angelica (Penelope Cruz). Depp gets better to me each time he dons the dreadlocks and boots, which is why I’m giving away passes to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Continue reading →
This time of year makes me think of high school and that awesome, tingly sensation we all had right before school got out. Seems like I had that blissed-out feeling of hope the whole month of May, like something incredible was BOUND to happen that summer. That’s probably why I’m excited about Everything Everything. This tale of doomed love between a sick, home-bound girl (Amandla Stenberg) and her new neighbor (Nick Robinson) definitely would have appealed to 16-year-old me. I’m not proud to admit that I’ve had a gross old-lady crush on Nick Robinson ever since Kings of Summer, as well. So, do you want to pretend you’re back in high-school with me and see Everything Everything EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
When King Arthur: Legend of the Sword was pitched to the studios, it was described as Guy Ritchie’s Snatch meets The Lord of the Rings movies.
How freaking incredible does that sound?
This retelling of the Excalibur tale portrays King Arthur (Charlie Hunnam) as a street thug, roaming the back alleys of Londinium after losing his family and crown to an evil dictator (Jude Law). It’s supposedly the first in a six-part series, so you’d better go ahead and jump on the bandwagon now. Lucky for you, I’ve got passes to see King Arthur: Legend of the Sword EARLY and FOR FREE.
