Melissa McCarthy

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “The Happytime Murders” EARLY & FOR FREE

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 →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Ant-Man & the Wasp” EARLY & FOR FREE

I know we’re all excited about seeing Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly in Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, but something’s been bothering me.
Have you gotten a good look at the Wasp’s outfit?

Evangeline Lilly
Do YOU see it???

I was a little put-off by the weird boob-cups when I first saw it, so I hit Google to see if I was alone. Imagine my surprise when HelloGiggles.com pointed out something I had completely missed. You can read about that HERE, but you’ll never look at the Wasp in costume without having dirty-thoughts again.
You still want to see Ant-Man and the Wasp though, don’t you? Especially if you can see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →

Fred Rogers

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” EARLY & FOR FREE

Why do you think everyone is flipping out over Won’t You Be My Neighbor? This documentary about Fred Rogers and his Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood has been blowing audiences out of the water at film festivals everywhere. Even it’s trailer moves most people to tears (me included) with long forgotten images of Mr. McFeely, Lady Aberlin and of course, those famous blue sneakers. What is it about this TV show and especially this man that seems so important and necessary right now? Could it be Fred Rogers’ commitment to children, or to honesty, or his continued assertion that everyone is special and deserving of love? I don’t know, but I’m tearing up just thinking about it and simply can’t wait too see this movie! So, do you want to see Won’t You Be My Neighbor EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

Woodley & Claflin

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

Imagine meeting the love of your life, who then asks you to sail across the ocean with him? Sounds pretty romantic doesn’t it? Well, that’s exactly what happened to Tami Oldham and it was just as beautiful as it sounds, until they sailed right into a massive hurricane. Oldham wrote a book about their journey, called Red Sky in Mourning: A True Story of Love, Loss and Survival at Sea, which has been turned into the movie Adrift (starring Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin). It looks pretty incredible and, after her brilliant performance in Big Little Lies, I’d watch Shailene Woodley in anything. If you feel the same way, Continue reading →

It’s been a while since we’ve had a straight-up Kids’ Flick to talk about, and Show Dogs definitely fits the bill. This one stars Chris “Ludacris” Bridges as a police dog who has to go undercover at a dog show to stop a bad guy. Will Arnett also stars, along with some pretty high-powered voice-talent, including Stanley Tucci, Alan Cumming, Shaquille O’Neal and RuPaul.

STARZ VIDA

See STARZ “Vida” on the Big Screen for FREE!

I absolutely LOVE IT when great TV shows are displayed on a movie screen. Especially when it’s a series that benefits from the theater experience, like VIDA. Now, I haven’t seen it yet, but the crowds who saw VIDA at SXSW this year liked it enough to make it the Audience Award winner.
VIDA tells the story of two Mexican-American sisters, Emma (Mishel Prada) and Lyn (Melissa Barrera), from the Eastside of Los Angeles who couldn’t be more different from each other. Circumstances force them back to their old neighborhood, where they are confronted by the past and the surprising truth about their mother’s identity. The series will premiere on May 6th but you can see the first 2 episodes EARLY and at Studio Movie Grill! If that sounds fun to you, Continue reading →
