MOVIES TO SEE (& Some to Avoid) OVER THANKSGIVING BREAK

Hope you got some time off for Thanksgiving because the past 2 weeks have gifted us with a cornucopia of highly anticipated flicks. Not all of them are worth the hefty ticket price, though. I’ve seen all of the new releases (OK, most of them) and can tell you which ones to see with your family, which ones to see with your drunk, adult friends, and which ones you should dodge like a bullet. Here are the Julie Says So Movies to See Over Thanksgiving (and which ones to AVOID). I even put them into nifty categories to make it easy for you.

THE SEQUELS

Fantastic Beasts 2
Scoot over, so I can get a better look at Dumbledore.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald feels like a J.K. Rowling fever dream. She packed it with everything she thinks we want to see in a Fantastic Beasts follow-up (loving shots of Hogwarts, surprising family trees and, of course, fantastic beasts), but she also had to tell about 20 other stories in the process. You’re left with a four-hour-long mess (OK, it’s just 2-hours-long but it FEELS so much longer). My 11-year-old looked at me as the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald credits rolled and said, “What? I’m so confused.” And that sums the whole movie up in 4 words. (D)
Best Part: Jude Law’s young Dumbledore is simply delicious.
Worst Part: Johnny Depp. Just any scene he’s in. Continue reading →

Chatting About MAY MOVIES on “Good Morning Texas”

I know what you’re asking yourself today.

What am I supposed to do AFTER I’ve seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2?

Well, you could go see another movie (after you’ve seen GOTG2 a second and third time, of course). Believe it or not, there ARE other films opening this month and some of them look fantastic. I was on Good Morning Texas last week, discussing the phenomenon of movies that AREN’T Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and you can watch that by clicking HERE. I didn’t get a chance to cover every interesting movie that’s opening this month, so I made a handy list for you with links to purchase tickets. Find that below, and remember that we won’t judge if you panic and just go see that new Guardians movie again. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” EARLY & FOR FREE

When King Arthur: Legend of the Sword was pitched to the studios, it was described as Guy Ritchie’s Snatch meets The Lord of the Rings movies.
How freaking incredible does that sound?
This retelling of the Excalibur tale portrays King Arthur (Charlie Hunnam) as a street thug, roaming the back alleys of Londinium after losing his family and crown to an evil dictator (Jude Law). It’s supposedly the first in a six-part series, so you’d better go ahead and jump on the bandwagon now. Lucky for you, I’ve got passes to see King Arthur: Legend of the Sword EARLY and FOR FREE.

PODCAST: Boozy Movies Reviews “Spy” & Fights Over Jude Law’s Bald Spot

Well, look at that! We went and made a VIDEO this week instead of the usual podcast. My dear friend Steven Visneau, who is without a doubt THE MOST TALENTED photographer I know, said “Why don’t you let me film that movie review for you?” I think he (and possibly everyone else) was getting tired of hearing us scream into my tiny mic during the podcast. Whatever the reason, we have an actual YouTube video for you to watch this week. Sadly, Sybil Summers & Richie Whitt couldn’t join us because…well, you’ll see why. Enjoy!
