Years ago, I posted a blanket request for Good Books to Read on social media. Someone suggested The Goldfinch, which I picked up and hated so much that I actually started reading The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt before I even finished it. I loved that book, because it was funny, but also because it felt like something horrible could happen at any minute, like a Tarantino flick. They managed to capture that tone with the cast for The Sisters Brothers movie, including Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, Jake Gyllenhaal and, holy crap, Rutger Hauer! So, feel like seeing The Sisters Brothers EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Those of us with kids are about to spend a whole week with them at home and you know how that goes. They spend extended periods of time on their chosen devices until parental-guilt kicks in and you HAVE to take them somewhere. This is a great time to catch up on the movies you’ve missed and fortunately, there’s some fun stuff currently in theaters. I put together a list of the Julie Says So Top 5 Movies to See Over Spring Break, but these are primarily for kids 13 and under. If you have older kids (or just kids who like movies for older kids) I would add Logan and especially Get Out to the list. Both of them are rated R and contain hefty portions of violence and profanity, but they’re also GREAT! The following five movies would be great for older kids too, they just won’t gleefully chant your name for suggesting them. Continue reading →
I was on Good Morning Texas with Shannon Powell Hart yesterday, to talk about ALL the big new movies opening in March AND to give my review of Logan. I didn’t get to see The Shack but the reviews are coming in and sadly, they’re not so good. Click HERE to read some of those and then watch my segment by clicking right HERE. Make sure you check the FREE MOVIE PASSES PAGE as well, to grab some of those Kong: Skull Island tickets! Continue reading →
Is it just me, or did Kong: Skull Island come out of nowhere?
How did we miss this?
Maybe we were all too busy talking about Beauty and the Beast or the insanity at the Oscars to notice, but another honest-to-goodness King Kong movie is coming out.
It’s even got a great cast, with Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and John C. Reilly. Kong: Skull Island looks surprisingly GOOD, too. So seriously…
how did we miss this?
Well, it doesn’t really matter because I have passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →
I remember going to see Flash Gordon with my cousins back in 1980. We were all in Conway, Arkansas for the holidays and I was the youngest kid in this particular outing. I felt so cool, hanging out with the big girls (even though the Emperor Ming scared me a little) and I love that stupid movie to this day. My point is that everyone LOVES catching a movie over the holidays, especially if they have fun relatives around, and now you can do it FOR FREE. See, AMC Theaters will be offering FREE SCREENINGS of the movie Sing nationwide the Saturday after Thanksgiving (11/26/16). Continue reading →
