If Seth Rogen’s Superbad and Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird had a baby, if would probably be Booksmart. It’s about two high-school overachievers who decide to cram the entire teenage experience into one night. Booksmart stars Kaitlyn Dever (The Front Runner) and Beanie Feldstein (squeee “Julie” from Lady Bird!) and is the directorial debut of Olivia Wilde (who is way more talented than I realized). Best of all, I have free passes to see it! Continue reading →
Most film-fans fall into 3 categories, when it comes to Pokémon Detective Pikachu. You’re either a fan of Pokémon in general and excited to see it, the parent of a Pokémon fan and therefore FORCED to see it, or you’re going to pretend the film doesn’t exist and go about your day.
I am speaking to the FIRST 2 GROUPS when I say I have passes to see Pokémon Detective Pikachu EARLY and FOR FREE. Continue reading →
I’d completely understand if you saw the trailer for Long Shot and decided to blow it off. This rom-com with a side of politics doesn’t exactly scream “Must See,” but you absolutely should anyway. Long Shot is far better than the trailer lets on and, if you haven’t noticed, it ISN’T a superhero movie! Continue reading →
I usually have to write a description of a movie and talk about it’s stars to get people interested in seeing it. Other times, I just post the link and watch the free passes disappear. So…who wants to see John Wick: Chapter 3- Parabellum EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Oh, how I wish my Mother-in-Law lived closer so I could take her to see Poms for Mother’s Day! Diane Keaton heads a phenomenal cast including Jackie Weaver, Pam Grier and Rhea Pearlman, as women who start a competitive cheerleading squad in their retirement community (based on a true story). It would be the perfect Mother’s Day treat for the Mom in your life AND I have passes to Free Screenings all over Texas! Continue reading →
Big Kids have gotten their share of Blockbuster Movies lately, but here’s something for the Little Kids. UglyDolls is about a group of toys who don’t fit the mold of “traditional dolls,” but long to be loved anyway. It boasts a star-studded cast (Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas and Janelle Monae to name a few) and features a stellar soundtrack. Best of all, I have passes to see UglyDolls all over Texas!

If I was planning to do something illegal, like steal a muscle car and then rob a bunch of liquor stores, I’d want to do it with Rebel Wilson. Not because she’s a badass or someone who would be capable of successfully pulling off such a stunt. No, I’d bring Rebel Wilson on my crime spree just because she’d make it that much better. That’s why I’ve got high hopes for The Hustle, which stars Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway as con-artists with an axe to grind. So, who wants to see The Hustle EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
I made a joke on social media yesterday about dropping spoilers into my Avengers: Endgame review. It led to actual death threats. That’s one of the reasons I’m so nervous about writing this review, but I also truly don’t want to spoil anything for anybody. So instead of writing about the movie, I’m going to tell you what you need to do before seeing it. Continue reading →
***I posted this blog last year, but thought you might need it again. The only addition is, of course, Avengers: Infinity War. Don’t even try watching Endgame before you see that one!***
One of the biggest superhero movies ever made is hitting theaters, but those who are new to the Marvel universe absolutely SHOULD NOT start with Avengers: Infinity War. This movie combines several stories that have been told onscreen for ten years now, starting with Iron Man in 2008. If you try to jump in with Avengers: Infinity War, you’ll not only be confused but you’ll also miss out on the chance to properly fall in love with these characters. If it’s possible, I highly encourage you to watch all of these movies, starting with the Iron Man series, then Thor, followed by the Captain America films. You’ll also need to work in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, the new Spider-Man, and Black Panther, but maybe you don’t have that kind of time. If you can only squeeze in a few films before the Marvel fan in your life FORCES you to see Infinity War, use this guide as your Cliff Notes.
1. You should start by watching the first Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America films, but if you can’t get to those, watch the first Avengers. This will introduce you to the main characters and give you a starter course on Thanos. It’s also surprisingly fun. Watch through the credits for bonus scenes and you’ll finally get those shawarma jokes.

I’ll admit to a quick giggle when I saw the poster for The Intruder and tried to imagine Dennis Quaid as the bad guy. He stars in this movie alongside Michael Ealy and Meagan Goode, who play the couple who buy his Napa Valley home. Quaid’s character decides he’s not ready to leave the house after all, which is when The Intruder takes an ugly Jack Torrance turn. I only needed one peek at the trailer to realize Quaid is actually quite terrifying, especially with that freakishly wide grin.
So, want to see The Intruder EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
