MOVIE REVIEWS (by proxy)- B.J. Cleveland Dishes About “Colossal” & “Their Finest”

OK, I’ll admit it. I haven’t seen a movie in a week. Well, OVER a week, since I’m being honest. Sorry, but an extended Easter break and my kid’s 13th birthday made it impossible to get anything done. Even now, I’m listening some obnoxious kids’ show blasting from the other room and it’s Tuesday. WHY ARE THEY STILL OUT OF SCHOOL???

Anyhow, I haven’t seen any movies but my friend, B.J. Cleveland has.
B.J. is a local actor who…
Wait, that’s an understatement. To understand how truly awesome B.J. is, you need to read this quote from The Dallas Morning News:

“B.J. Cleveland is legendary…one of the most talented and versatile talents in town!”

This is why I brag about knowing him. Anyhow, B.J. was alternately cheering and moaning about the movies he saw this weekend, so I asked him to write some reviews for me. I told him that I only needed a few lines, featuring his sparkling wit, and THIS is what B.J. wrote. No one can EVER accuse this man of half-assing anything.

Movie Review Round-Up: DEEPWATER HORIZON, MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, QUEEN OF KATWE & MASTERMINDS

Feel like heading to the movies this weekend but don’t want to spend 2 hours watching something you hate? I can help with that. Here’s what’s opening this weekend and whether or not it’s worth your time.

Deepwater Horizon – This movie is completely split down the middle for me. The first half introduces us to the crew of the offshore drilling rig Deepwater Horizon, and informs us that something is horribly wrong. You won’t understand what that something horrible is (unless you have a background in drilling or maybe an Engineering Degree) and repeated attempts to explain it don’t help. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Masterminds” ON ME!

I think I’d watch anything with Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon in it. In fact, my current idea of HEAVEN would be the two of them narrating a nonstop loop of those Tasty videos. Yeah, but only the recipes that featured lots of cream cheese and canned biscuits!

While we’re waiting for that to magically happen, we can watch Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon in Masterminds. This one also stars Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, and Zach Galifianakis as an armored-car driver who steals 17 million dollars worth of cash. If you’d like to see Masterminds EARLY and FOR FREE, just click HERE, then watch the trailer below. Man, Masterminds is based on actual events, but I hope just LOOSELY!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Mother’s Day” On Me!

I worked with a man many moons ago who didn’t buy Mother’s Day gifts for his wife. He said he didn’t have to because she wasn’t his mother. He also didn’t think the fact that she’d given birth to his two daughters counted.

I still get pissed off when I think about that guy.

Hopefully you’re not married to that dude or someone like him and if you are, I have a Mother’s Day gift for YOU. Better yet, you don’t even have to be a MOM to take advantage of it.

I have free passes to see the new movie Mother’s Day, starring Julia Roberts, Jennifer Anniston and Kate Hudson. Now, this isn’t the Mother’s Day that came out in 2010, which is a home-invasion slasher-flick starring Rebecca De Mornay. No, this Mother’s Day isn’t stabby like that one, but it does poke fun at the difficult relationships we have with our MOMS. Get your free passes by clicking HERE, then take a minute to watch the trailer below. You know, you could bring YOUR Mom to the screening and make that her Mother’s Day present…if you’re cheap like me. I promise I won’t tell her!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Sleeping With Other People” On Me!

This is kind of a dreadful time of year, isn’t it? Summer is OVER but it’s still hot and doesn’t feel like FALL yet. Kids are grouchy about back-to-school homework and parents are even grouchier about helping them with it. New TV shows have yet to start and though we keep seeing ads for GREAT NEW MOVIES, none of them are in theaters yet. Fortunately, that’s all about to change because I HAVE FREE MOVIE PASSES! You can see Sleeping with Other People, starring Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie as college f-buddies who reconnect at a meeting for Sex Addicts. It’s produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay and is being compared to When Harry Met Sally, but with lots of racy sex scenes. Sounds like a great way to kill that pre-Fall boredom and get out of the house, right? Even better, the screening is at the Angelika in Dallas on September 23rd, so we can get drinks in the bar beforehand! Print out the pass below to get you and a buddy in for free and I’ll see you there! Just don’t touch me during those intense sex scenes or things will get really awkward.
