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 →
Is it strange that I read the Captain Underpants books long before I had kids?
My friend (and former 102.1 the Edge co-worker) Jessie Jessup introduced me to these stories about kids who turn their principal into a superhero years ago. I still have a few dog-eared copies left, which is why I was thrilled (and a little apprehensive) when I heard that Dreamworks was making a movie out of them.
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie stars Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch as George and Harold. Ed Helms voices their cantankerous principal, Mr. Krupp who eventually becomes Captain Underpants. Yes, I know all of this sounds ridiculous but that’s exactly WHY the books were so awesome and why the movie just might be.

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 →
If you’re like me, you probably knew nothing about Going in Style until this very moment. Do yourself a favor and watch the trailer below so you’ll KNOW how badly you want to see this movie. Continue reading →
We can all pretend that I’m excited about Gifted because I have tremendous respect for Chris Evans’ body of work. I’ll admit that it’s nice to see him OUT of the Captain America suit and working with Octavia Spencer again (they were in Snowpiercer together), but really, I’d watch that man in anything.

I think I’ve heard more about the Ghost in the Shell controversy than I’ve heard about the movie itself. See, Ghost in the Shell is based on a popular Japanese manga and the main character, Major, has always been considered Japanese. There were cries of whitewashing when Scarlett Johansson was cast in the role, but not everyone agrees. In fact, the director of the original anime, Mamoru Oshii, had this to say to IGN.com: Continue reading →
Jessica Chastain once made the mistake of responding to my tweet. She and Edgar Wright (Director of Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) were having a Twitter-chat when I slipped in a comment. They both cyber-chuckled, which sent me over the moon (far more excitement than any grown woman should get from celebrity tweets) AND launched my still-burning Jessica Chastain crush. She’s currently starring in The Zookeeper’s Wife, which tells the true story of Polish zookeepers who risked their lives during the German invasion to save people, as well as animals. It looks fantastic and since Jessica and I are such good friends, I’m giving away passes to see The Zookeeper’s Wife EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →
You thought you didn’t need a big-screen reboot of the classic TV show CHiPs and…well…you probably didn’t, but you’re getting one anyway. This CHiPs stars Dax Shepard and Michael Peña as members of the California Highway Patrol, but their origin story has been changed completely. We also get a visit from Kristen Bell, but I don’t think there will be any adorable sloth-moments this time around. If you’d like to see CHiPs EARLY and FOR FREE, click HERE to get your passes, then watch the trailer below. (CHiPs opens nationwide 3/24 and you can buy tickets HERE.)
Is it just me, or did Kong: Skull Island come out of nowhere?
How did we miss this?
Maybe we were all too busy talking about Beauty and the Beast or the insanity at the Oscars to notice, but another honest-to-goodness King Kong movie is coming out.
It’s even got a great cast, with Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and John C. Reilly. Kong: Skull Island looks surprisingly GOOD, too. So seriously…
how did we miss this?
Well, it doesn’t really matter because I have passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →
