Julie then talks to James Faust about the Dallas International Film Festival and the future of indie films (like the much-anticipated Coda) in a post-Covid, streaming world.

The “Julie Says So” MOVIE MINUTE Podcast (w/ help from HAUNTED AF)

“Ugh…now they’re screaming about movies.”

Rebekah Black and I love working together. It started years ago, during our CBS Radio days. We worked on morning shows for different stations but palled around in the break-room whenever we could. We started covering movies together and the rest is history…sort of.

Movies are BACK!

Movies are BACK!
We’re Back!

It’s been a long year. Hell, after Covid, I had decided to hang up my “Film Critic” hat and donate my giant purse (the one I use to smuggle candy and tiny wine bottles into screenings) to Goodwill. I even came this close to shutting down this website. Then I made an appearance on Good Morning Texas to give my Oscars predictions (watch that HERE if you want). It was the most “normal” I’d felt in a straight year and I loved it so much, I decided to load up the giant purse and don that hat again. I even have my first in-theater screening next week to see A Quiet Place Part 2! That will give me a better opportunity to see how theaters are operating in a Covid world but AMC, Cinemark, the Angelika and the Alamo Drafthouse have their protocols posted online. There will hopefully be Free Movie Screenings in our future but, for now, I’ll focus on the films that are opening in theaters soon like Cruella, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It and, of course, Black Widow. I’ll kick off with a review of A Quiet Place Part 2 next week so have a look at the trailer below. Now, want to add anything to my giant purse?

Predator

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “The Predator” EARLY & FOR FREE

I can’t honestly say I was that jazzed to hear they were making a new Predator movie. I mean, how many is that now? Maybe 6, including the Alien vs. Predator movies? It isn’t really a bandwagon I’ve ever jumped on, but then I saw the cast. Sterling K. Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, Olive Munn and Boyd Holbrook (sooo creepy in Logan) are all starring in it. Even little Jacob Tremblay (who should’ve gotten an Oscar nomination for his role in Room) is in The Predator, so it’s got to be kind of good, doesn’t it? Well, it won’t matter either way if we get to see it EARLY and FOR FREE. Continue reading →
