Maybe it seemed like a great idea to release The Front Runner during the mid-term elections. What better time to tell a story about squandered political promise? Those in charge probably didn’t think about the nonstop political ads we’ve been force-fed lately or the fact that some people will want to crawl into a hole and live there after November 6th. Well, push that political-malaise aside and remember that Hugh Jackman plays Gary Hart. We love that guy so much, we even forgave his version of P.T. Barnum. The Front Runner is also from Oscar-nominated director Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air, Tully), so he’s bound to do something twisty and revealing with the story, right? Well, it won’t matter either way if you see The Front Runner EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →
If you watched the Emmy’s recently and were bummed that Tiffany Haddish didn’t show up in her white Alexander McQueen dress, I’ve got news for you! She actually wears it a fifth time in her new movie, Nobody’s Fool (click HERE if you don’t know the story behind that dress). Haddish stars as an ex-con who gets out of prison and reunites with her sister, played by Tika Sumpter. It’s the latest from Tyler Perry and also stars Whoopi Goldberg, so who wants to see Nobody’s Fool EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
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 →
Oh, people always have to gripe about something, and now they’re mad at Venom.
Evidently, the new Marvel flick, starring Tom Hardy as Spider Man’s rival, is rated PG-13 in the United States. That’s just too kid-friendly for long-term fans of the character, who wanted something much darker for this new incarnation. Hardy doesn’t seem to mind though. In fact, he got most of his direction from his 10-year-old son, who knew far more about Venom than he did. You can read more about that HERE, or would you rather just see Venom EARLY and FOR FREE? Click HERE to grab your passes if so, then watch the trailer below. And HOLY COW Venom looks SCARY to me! Even with that PG-13 rating!
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 →
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 →
My 14-year-old read Crazy Rich Asians this summer and is already griping about how the movie is different from the book. How does she know? I have no idea. Something about the trailer but who cares if you can see it 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 →
Did I ever tell you about the crush I had on Christopher Robin? I don’t know if it was his little Mary Jane shoes or the way he talked to stuffed animals, but 4-year-old ME was smitten. I even tried to call Christopher Robin on the phone once, but didn’t know how and started dialing random numbers. My father caught me and said that I’d called the police instead, who had arrived and were arresting my sister. She joined the fun and started screaming for help from the living room. This promptly ended my crush on Christopher Robin, but I still can’t wait to see his movie. If you would like to see Christopher Robin with me EARLY and FOR FREE Continue reading →
Are your kids out of school for the summer? Do you wake every morning to the sounds of “What are we going to do today, Mom/Dad? What are we going to DOOOO???” Are you running out of cash, spending every last dollar on “Something to Do” so you’re constantly-bored-offspring will give you a moment of peace? If so, I’m about to be your new best-friend because I have passes to see Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →
