I think Jason Mamoa’s Aquaman might be my new favorite DC superhero. I feel like a straight-up traitor for saying that, since Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is clearly the best hero they’ve cranked out yet. There’s just something about Mamao that I love. No, it’s not because he’s gorgeous…though that helps. It’s because Jason Mamoa really seems like the type of guy who would stick up for the underdog, then hang-out and play drinking games with him. Sure he’s beautiful, but he also seems like a good guy, which is the part I like the most. So, who wants to see Aquaman EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
I’m guaranteed a handful of shocked responses from parents whenever I write Mommy Movie Reviews for horror flicks like The Nun. I’m not suggesting that ANYONE should take their toddler, or even older kids who don’t like scary movies. These reviews are strictly for parents like me, whose kids WANT to be scared out of their wits.
So, if you allow your kids to see it or even offer to take them yourself, what can you expect from The Nun? Continue reading →
I get the occasional angry comment when I talk about watching scary movies with my kids. They usually come from people who don’t actually have children, though. Breeders like ME know that kids out grow Disney flicks and eventually want to watch something more exciting. That’s when they start relentlessly badgering parents about seeing movies that the Motion Picture Association of America has deemed inappropriate for them. These are often the same kids who watch The Walking Dead or equally scary fare, who are familiar with the type of violence the MPAA frowns on.
This is where I come in.
I have a 13-year-old girl who wants to watch everything. Is it scary? Would it make a grown man shiver and ask for a nightlight? Then my daughter wants to see it. Her favorite scary movie of all time is The Conjuring. She laughed when I showed her the original Poltergeist and declared that The Ring is, “more weird than scary.”
Can a kid like her handle Annabelle: Creation? Continue reading →
You either LOVE scary movies or you HATE THEM.
I don’t understand people who don’t like scary movies, though. YES, you will be scared and NO, you probably won’t sleep well for a while. If you’re lucky and the movie is REALLY SCARY, you might even have a hard time walking around your house in broad daylight for a few days. In best case scenarios, you might recall moments from the movie at 3:07am in the morning, when you’re stumbling in the dark towards the bathroom. Or when you have soap in your eyes in the shower. Or, best of all, when you’re driving alone down a dark, empty road late at night.
Yes, if a scary movie is REALLY GOOD, it will ruin you for a long time to come and isn’t that what we really want?
So, who wants so see Annabelle: Creation EARLY & FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Two years ago, director David Sandberg released a short film called Lights Out. The movie, which starred his wife Lotta Losten as a woman who is plagued by a figure in her darkened hallway, took social media by storm. I remember watching it at work and blurting out obscenities as the lights went out. If you’ve never seen it before, take the mere 2:42 required to watch it below. Believe me, it’s worth it.
Now you understand why Lights Out has been viewed over 12 million times around the world, right? They OBVIOUSLY had to make a full-length movie out of it but here’s the big surprise…
IT’S ACTUALLY GOOD!
In fact, the big screen version of Lights Out, which stars Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies, The Choice) and Billy Burke from Twilight, is currently trending at 100% on the Film Critics website Rotten Tomatoes. Even better, I have passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE so grab those by clicking HERE, then watch the Lights Out trailer below. Dammit, I might not ever sleep AGAIN!
I was on Good Morning Texas today to talk about all the big movies that are coming out this month AND review The Conjuring 2. I also got to meet their brand new host Alanna Sarabia, who is so gorgeous that I just wanted to stare at her the whole time. Click HERE to watch the segment and don’t forget to cruise my Free Movie Passes page for FREEBIES!
We finally watched the movie I was most excited about seeing this year, The Conjuring 2. Was it everything I’d hoped it would be? Does it live up to the first movie? Was I screaming so much that someone thought I needed assistance? Listen to find out! I will say I was most disturbed by the picture below, which Michael Hatch showed me right after the movie. It’s supposedly a real photo of the little boy who haunted the Amityville House. It’s also why I only got about 2 hours of sleep last night.
See the image above? I saw that for the first time a few months ago, when I saw The Conjuring 2 trailer in the theater. I honestly screamed out loud when that dude came out of the wall. No one else around me screamed because no one else was really paying attention. I, on the other hand, was rapt.
See, I LOVED the first Conjuring. It’s easily in my Top 5 List of Scary Movies and probably in my Top 10 Favorites of All Time, if you forced me to make one. I’m a sucker for any ghost story that’s BASED ON ACTUAL EVENTS, plus Director James Wan has such a delicate touch with these films, they actually feel REAL.
This is why you probably shouldn’t sit anywhere near me during The Conjuring 2. NO, I’m going to scream and flail and probably yell out a healthy dose of profanity in the process. It will be highly embarrassing for us all but you should STILL get free passes to see The Conjuring 2. Do that by clicking HERE, then watch the trailer below. On second thought, maybe you should sit right next to me. And hold my hand!
