I joined Good Morning Texas today to talk about some of the biggest movies opening this month, like Jurassic World Dominion, Lightyear and Elvis. Click HERE to find the segment and take a minute to watch the trailer for Facing Nolan (the Nolan Ryan documentary) below. That’s playing at select Studio Movie Grills so make sure you look for tickets online before heading to the theater. While you’re here, remember to check the Free Movie Passes page to see what I’m giving away. Last time I looked, there were a handful of passes left to see Lightyear in Dallas, Austin and San Antonio!
Julie and Rebekah couldn’t wait to discuss the Severance season finale and share details about the new Spirit Halloween movie (allegedly opening this October!). They dished on Renee Zellweggar’s The Thing About Pam and A24‘s new kids’ flick Marcel the Shell with Shoes On. Julie will also let you know if Robert Eggers’ latest The Northman is worth your time and money. Remember to find more movie reviews and free movie passes at JulieSaysSo.com and take a minute to watch the Marcel trailer below!
It was during a rare quiet moment in the film Everything Everywhere All at Once when a woman behind me said, “This movie is so stupid.”
She must have felt strongly about it because she said it again a half-hour later.
“Seriously…this movie is so stupid.”
She’s not entirely wrong either.
There are moments of blistering stupidity in Everything Everywhere All at Once, but they are sandwiched between broad, existential comments on love, parenting, and the way we view our own precious lives. It’s how this film manages to be absurd, grotesque, and brilliant all at the same time.Continue reading →
I couldn’t get to the Gifted screening this week, despite my admittedly-embarrassing love for Chris Evans. Sorry, but I’m a busy Mom and sometimes sh*t happens, which is why I’m grateful for my movie-buddy Rebekah Black. She was able to see Gifted and write a review for me, though she clearly expected it to suck. 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 NEVER expected to like the first Lego Movie and, as I always say, Low Expectations Are a Film’s Best Friend.
Like that line? Feel free to use it.
The first Lego Movie ended up in my Top 10 Favorite Films of 2014, so now I’m trying to reel in my expectations for The Lego Batman Movie. My kids, on the other hand, are full-blown PUMPED about it.
So, who wants to see The Lego Batman Movie EARLY & FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Have you noticed that Kids’ Movies are starting to look like each other? Maybe it’s because they’re all made by the same studios, writers, and animators, but the characters and storylines are becoming interchangeable. The Secret Life of Pets comes from Illumination Entertainment, the same people who did The Lorax and Despicable Me. It looks so familiar, you’ll be waiting for a Minion to pop up. That doesn’t mean it isn’t also extremely fun to watch. Continue reading →
Adam Pally (Happy Endings, The Mindy Project) was in town today and I was lucky enough to hang out with him. Pally was here to promote his new movie Dirty Grandpa with Robert De Niro and Zac Efron, but he discussed everything under the sun with us, from parenting to bowel movements. Adam Pally seriously described his poop to us, which made me love him even more. Thanks to Matt Mungle for joining me in the interview and asking all of the good questions.
