FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Ant-Man & the Wasp” EARLY & FOR FREE

I know we’re all excited about seeing Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly in Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, but something’s been bothering me.
Have you gotten a good look at the Wasp’s outfit?

Evangeline Lilly
Do YOU see it???

I was a little put-off by the weird boob-cups when I first saw it, so I hit Google to see if I was alone. Imagine my surprise when HelloGiggles.com pointed out something I had completely missed. You can read about that HERE, but you’ll never look at the Wasp in costume without having dirty-thoughts again.
You still want to see Ant-Man and the Wasp though, don’t you? Especially if you can see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Uncle Drew” EARLY & FOR FREE

Did you know that the movie Uncle Drew is actually based on a TV commercial?
Yep, Pepsi first released the documentary-style Uncle Drew ad with N.B.A. star Kyrie Irving back in 2012 and it quickly went viral. They made a feature length version of it, with Irving still playing the septuagenarian ball player, but added Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson and Lisa Leslie to his team. Now, Pepsi has released another Uncle Drew commercial to promote the Uncle Drew movie, which came from that original commercial. It’s like a snake eating it’s tail, isn’t it? So, do you want to see Uncle Drew EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

Mommy Movie Review: Is “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” OK for Kids

Someone did me a big favor before I saw Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
They told me it was awful.
I searched for a second opinion online, and found loads of critics who called Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom lifeless, intellectually insulting, and possibly the worst in the series. I had the world’s lowest expectations when I saw it and because of that, I kind of liked Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Yes, it’s lifeless, far-fetched and you might shake your head at it’s more ridiculous moments, but Jurassic World: Fallen World is also a cinematic roller-coaster ride that offers one of the most inspired endings from the series yet.
But is it OK for kids??? Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Sorry to Bother You” EARLY & FOR FREE

If you aren’t excited about the film Sorry to Bother You, you must not have read any of it’s crazy-enthusiastic reviews. One of my favorites comes from Alex Arabian of filminquiry.com, who says this:
Sorry To Bother You is an intelligent, batshit crazy satire that offers plenty of the theater of the absurd, a standout performance from Lakeith Stanfield, the most original script of the past two years, and plenty of laughs and food for thought.”
Sounds pretty great, right? You can read the rest of that review HERE (or browse through the other glowing Rotten Tomatoes reviews HERE), OR you could just grab FREE PASSES to see Sorry to Bother You from me! Continue reading →

Movie Reviews on GOOD MORNING TEXAS – Including My Review of “Incredibles 2”

I was on Good Morning Texas today talking about some of the biggest movies opening this month, including Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Uncle Drew and Sicario 2: Days of Soldado. I also gave my review of Incredibles 2, which opens THIS WEEKEND (find those tickets HERE).
Click HERE to watch the segment, then check my FREE MOVIE PASSES page to see if there are any left to see John Hamm in Tag. I’m still so jealous that Jane McGarry got to TOUCH him!

Renner & Hamm

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Tag” EARLY & FOR FREE

Think for a minute about some of the stupid things you did with your friends when you were a kid? Now image that you continued that nonsense into adulthood and raised the stakes even higher. Well, that’s exactly what Tag is about and, believe it or not, it’s based on a true story.
Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm, Ed Helms, Hannibal Buress and Jake Johnson star as classmates who’ve been playing the same game of Tag for thirty years. This continuous battle has taken them all around the world, but one of them is ready to retire. Will his buddies let him? Does it really matter if you’re seeing Tag EARLY and FOR FREE?

Hereditary

MOVIE REVIEW: “Hereditary” & How It’s Going to RUIN You

A handful of “Scary” movies have been released recently that go beyond that genre. Films like A Quiet Place and Get Out might be listed as “Horror,” but I feel their interesting stories take them beyond that, and even encouraged people who aren’t “Horror fans” to see them anyway.
Hereditary is NOT one of those films!!!
This R-rated picture about the death of a family matriarch is beyond terrifying, and might have even set a new industry standard. Continue reading →

Garden Song

How to Turn the Perfect B&B into a House of Horrors

I spent most of last night lying awake in the attic room of a 3-story house in Natchez, Mississippi. It’s called Garden Song and was built in 1836, then turned into a bed and breakfast only a few years ago. I chose it as a midway stopping-point for our return from Georgia, to appease my 14-year old daughter (who loves all-things-creepy). She preferred a B&B further out of town, which resembled a crumbling, nightmare-version of Forest Gump’s home, but I talked her out of it. An overnight stop would be pointless if I couldn’t sleep, and that place surely housed God-knows how many restless spirits. I talked her into Garden Song, which was in-town and bursting with Southern charm (and even better, great reviews).
We were the only guests for the night and our proprietor was out of town, so we surprisingly had the whole place to ourselves. My girls and I made the most of it for hours, lounging in the parlor and enjoying the sodas and wine that were left out for us. One of the master bedrooms was left open, so we also helped ourselves to the designer toilet that lived there. I double-dog-dared my youngest to try some of it’s more exotic options, which resulted in her first use of profanity. (What the hel…heck, Mom?!!!)
The sun went down and the house started to feel a little larger, with darkened corners and closed doors I hadn’t noticed before. I told the girls to head to our room, which took up the majority of the 3rd floor. Teeth were brushed and jammies were donned, but our earlier bravado had vanished. The door was locked, lights were dimmed and, even though there were two beds, we all crawled into one. Continue reading →

Ocean's 8

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Ocean’s 8” EARLY & FOR FREE

Dammit, this movie had better be good.
Sorry, but I’ve got some mounting concerns about Ocean’s 8, even as I watch Sarah Paulson calmly promote it on TV. Every time Sandra Bullock shows up looking sheik and relaxed on some late-night talk show, I tell myself that I’ll probably love Ocean’s 8. I smile as a sparkling Cate Blanchett plugs the movie and chugs beer with Jimmy Fallon, but in my heart I think, “Please…don’t let this movie suck.”
Because Ocean’s 8 can’t be just another Ocean’s movie with famous women in place of famous men. It can’t be a well-shot fashion show where glamorous women smirk as they rob other glamorous women. It has to be smart. It has to be funny. It has to tell a story we haven’t seen before and more importantly, Ocean’s 8 needs to make a statement about women and where we stand today.
And, if I was being completely honest, I’d admit that I need Ocean’s 8 to be even better than the Ocean’s movies that came before it.
No small task, right?
So, who wants to see Ocean’s 8 EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
