Years ago, I posted a blanket request for Good Books to Read on social media. Someone suggested The Goldfinch, which I picked up and hated so much that I actually started reading The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt before I even finished it. I loved that book, because it was funny, but also because it felt like something horrible could happen at any minute, like a Tarantino flick. They managed to capture that tone with the cast for The Sisters Brothers movie, including Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, Jake Gyllenhaal and, holy crap, Rutger Hauer! So, feel like seeing The Sisters Brothers EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
What if Bigfoot DID exist and he was just as interested in OUR existence as we are in HIS?
That is the premise behind the movie Smallfoot, where a Yeti named Migo encounters a human and tries to share the news with his village. No one believes him, so Migo sets out to find the land of Smallfoots (or Smallfeet, maybe?), hoping to bring one home to prove he wasn’t lying. There’s an outstanding cast here, with Channing Tatum, Zendaya, James Corden and LeBron James in his second feature length film (You remember how great he was in Trainwreck, don’t you?). So, who wants to see Smallfoot EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
What were you up to at 15? I think I was probably prank-calling friends, looking for parties and doing as little homework as humanly possible. Richard Wershe Jr., on the other hand, was a drug-kingpin and FBI informant by the time he turned 15. Makes you feel kind of lazy doesn’t? Richard Wershe Jr. is also the subject of the new movie White Boy Rick, which hits theaters September 14th. Newcomer Richie Merritt plays young Richard Wershe, while Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey plays his Dad, who was also a dealer. I actually love it when McConaughey plays strung-out, so who wants to see White Boy Rick with me, EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
I hate to say it, but the nun from The Nun isn’t that scary to me. Why? I don’t know. Maybe because I went to Catholic School with a bunch of nuns and, even though they often tried to be, they weren’t that scary. OH, unless you tried to chew gum in their class. They’d haunt your soul for all eternity if they caught you doing that.
Anyhow, do you want to see The Nun EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
I was on Good Morning Texas today, telling everyone what movies they should see in the following weeks. I always love talking to Jane McGarry and Alanna Sarabia and if you listen carefully, you’ll hear me cluck like a chicken at them for freaking out over The Nun. I also promised to post the trailer for The Nun that YouTube pulled for being TOO SCARY. Click HERE to watch that but BE WARNED! You should probably avoid it if you have a weak heart…or bladder.
Click HERE if you’d rather just watch the Good Morning Texas segment, and remember to check my FREE MOVIE PASSES page to see what kind of goodies I’m giving away. Also check the links below for movie trailers and tickets! Continue reading →
Peppermint stars Jennifer Garner as a mother who goes on a vigilante killing-spree after her husband and child are murdered. I haven’t seen it yet, but it kind of sounds like a Mom’s version of the movie Taken, doesn’t it? And you have to send props out to Jennifer Garner for training with the NAVY Seals while preparing for this film and still finding time to be a rock-star Mom. So, want to see Peppermint EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Oh, to get in on this glamorous Girl Club. A Simple Favor stars Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively as brand new gal-pals, but things get dark when one of them goes missing. Surprisingly dark, considering this is from director Paul Feig, who also brought us Bridesmaids and one of my personal favorites, Spy. So, wanna see A Simple Favor EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Every now and then, I see a movie trailer that’s so offensive, I can’t even decide how I feel about it. Such is the case for The Happytime Murders. This movie stars Melissa McCarthy as an investigator who has to figure out who’s killing a bunch of out-of-work Muppets.
I sh*t you not.
While there seems to be a wealth of material here, director Brian Henson (yeah, Jim Henson’s SON) has gone as nasty as humanly possible with the concept. Want proof? Just watch the trailer, but ALONE and with the volume turned WAY DOWN. And good God, don’t even attempt to watch it at work!
THAT’S how bad the trailer for The Happytime Murders is, and yet I still found myself laughing at it. Not normal laughter, mind you. No, that laugh you have when you kind of hate yourself for laughing.
So, do you still want to see The Happytime Murders EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
I just found the perfect movie for every dog lover EVER. It’s called Alpha and it tells the (supposed) story of the first dog-human relationship. Sound like your thing? Continue reading →
You know what the best thing about The Meg is? It’s release date. Yes, they waited until the end of the summer so we would all be done with our summer vacations and wouldn’t have to worry about giant sharks when we went to the beach. Unless you’re like me and worry about giant sharks anyway. So, want to see The Meg (starring Jason Statham, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose and one big-ass shark) EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
