Is it possible for ANY writer/director to not have a sophomore slump after a movie like Get Out? Jordan Peele gave us a film that was as interesting to watch as it was to discuss. It delivered a version of horror that we’d never seen before but with a heaping side of fun. We will be referencing Get Out’s music and messages for years, so is it even FAIR to expect that from Us?

Is it strange that I read the Captain Underpants books long before I had kids?
My friend (and former 102.1 the Edge co-worker) Jessie Jessup introduced me to these stories about kids who turn their principal into a superhero years ago. I still have a few dog-eared copies left, which is why I was thrilled (and a little apprehensive) when I heard that Dreamworks was making a movie out of them.
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie stars Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch as George and Harold. Ed Helms voices their cantankerous principal, Mr. Krupp who eventually becomes Captain Underpants. Yes, I know all of this sounds ridiculous but that’s exactly WHY the books were so awesome and why the movie just might be.
So, want to see Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
I saw the movie Get Out last night and it is now the ONLY thing I want to think or talk about. Comedian Jordan Peele delivers one of the smartest horror movies in ages, which skewers modern racism while scaring the bejeezus out of you. But can three white women review it without sounded racist? Listen to our podcast below to find out because we’re STILL not sure.
(Get Out Parent Review: This movie is Rated-R for violence, gore, profanity, racial slurs and some graphic sex-talk. There is no nudity or sexual depictions, but it’s probably more appropriate for older teens. You can (and should) get tickets by clicking HERE. )
Is it just me or did January suck? I’m biased because I’ve been dealing with a sick kid all week AND I am watching a man install a new hot-water heater as I write this. The old one sprung a massive leak in the middle of the night, which is why I’m still wearing pajamas in front of the water-heater man.
What does this have to do with anything, you ask?
Well, the point I’m trying unsuccessfully to make is that January sucked but February is looking UP, thanks to all the great movies that are opening. Here’s a list of my Top 5 Movies to See this month, so you won’t miss any of them. Continue reading →
People complain all the time that Hollywood has run out of ideas. “That’s why we keep seeing sequels and remakes,” they tell me, but that was before Storks. In this movie, storks no longer deliver babies and focus on internet sales instead. It proves to be lucrative until someone accidentally makes a baby. Now one stork must find a home for it, with the help of the only human on “Stork Mountain.”
Yeah, I’ve definitely never heard that story before.
Storks comes from the same studios that gave us The Lego Movie and it stars Andy Samberg (whom we all have secret crushes on, right?). Jennifer Aniston also makes an appearance and she hasn’t voiced a character since The Iron Giant in 1999 (SEE IT if you haven’t already). If you’d like see Storks EARLY and FOR FREE, click HERE to grab your passes, then watch the trailer below. See? They’ve definitely never made THIS movie before!
Rebekah Black and I saw Keanu (starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele) together but we had VERY different opinions about it. Listen to us hash those out while we eat tacos. Don’t worry, we chew with our mouths closed. Shout out to Velvet Taco for making our delicious lunch! Maybe they’ll give us some FREE tacos next time. Yeah, that’ll never happen.
