Need something new to watch? Maybe another sofa activity that won’t lead to self-loathing. What? I was referring to your habit of eating cake icing directly from the tub. Or is that just me? Well, COVID-19 might be a horrific pandemic but it couldn’t have come at a better time, with all the TV there is to watch. I’m joking, of course, but you’ve wanted to catch up on the shows and movies people were talking about. Now you’ve got the time. Continue reading →
It’s January so I have the lowest-of-LOW expectations for any film coming out right now. I was surprised to see a Guy Ritchie movie was being released, and even more shocked by its sparkling cast (Hugh Grant, Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell, Charlie Hunnam and Henry Golding). Ritchie has directed some stinkers though (namely King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) so I assumed The Gentlemen would fall in that same column. Continue reading →
Off the top of your head, name the last Guy Ritchie movie to hit theaters? Think you know? It was actually the live-action version of Alladin, which surprised most of us by being really good. Ritchie is back in his familiar wheel-house though, with the British gangster-comedy The Gentlemen. Starring a cast of favorites, like Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell and Matthew McConaughey, it follows the sale of an English drug empire to a family of Oklahoma billionaires (which explains McConaughey’s involvement). Best of all, I have passes to see The Gentlemen in cities all over the state! Continue reading →
I usually spend my Mommy Movie Review time explaining why a movie is or is not appropriate for your kids, but I’m not doing that today. No, today I’m going to tell you why you need to see Paddington 2, because I know you have absolutely NO interest in it.
How do I know this?
Well, I know because I gave away FREE MOVIE PASSES to Paddington 2 and no one took them. OK, a handful of you took tickets, but only after I reminded you to (and begged, just a little). I usually run out of free passes pretty quickly, so I was surprised that no one wanted these. I’ll admit to a wave of apathy when I watched the Paddington 2 trailer, and that I brought extra candy to the screening, in case my daughters started to complain.
They didn’t complain. In fact, we were all swept up in the magic and utter sweetness of Paddington 2 as soon as it started. Continue reading →
Did you know that the new Paddington movie is currently one of the highest rated movies on Rotten Tomatoes? Yep, Paddington 2 is currently sitting at 100%, which means that 0% of the critics who’ve reviewed it have found anything negative to say about it. If you take a look at the Paddington 2 reviews (you can do that HERE), you’ll find quotes like,
“…might well be a staple of festive television for years to come,”
or “Paddington 2 won’t save the world, sadly, but it’s existence makes everything just that tiny bit better and more, well, bearable.”
There’s also this little bon mot:
“Unless you’re dead inside, you will not fail to be utterly charmed by Paddington 2.”
Sounds like those of us who aren’t dead inside should be excited!
I haven’t seen Paddington 2 yet, but I plan to do so soon and would love it if you’d join me. Continue reading →
There are quite a few new movies out this week so I had to make some updates to my list. Unfortunately, not ALL of the new releases made it into the Top 8 Movies, but I was really surprised by the ones that did. Continue reading →

NEVER AGAIN my friend, all thanks to the Julie Says So Top 8 Movies to See RIGHT NOW! There’s eight of them, so surely you can find one in there that’ll make you happy. Continue reading →
August is usually a rotten month for movies. It’s essentially a dumping ground for studios to unload their not-so-hot flicks right between the Summer Blockbusters and Oscar Season. That’s why I’m SHOCKED by all the fantastic films we have to choose from right now. If you DON’T normally go to the theater, you should change that now and I’ve made a handy list for you. Here are my Top 8 Movies to See RIGHT NOW:

Anyone who makes a Cold War movie in 2015 better have an interesting take on it because we’ve seen every Russia VS America flick imaginable. Director Guy Ritchie makes HIS Cold War picture different by casting two of the most beautiful men in Hollywood, Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. If you’re a grown woman who relishes any chance to stare at these men (like me), that might be enough. If you need something more than foxy dudes in your movies, you might be yawning before the first fake Russian accent kicks in. Continue reading →
