The Julie Says So MOVIE MINUTE Podcast is playing catch-up this week, with reviews of Queenpins and Malignant, but we also have a review of The Eyes of Tammy Faye, courtesy of Bryan Kluger. We were jazzed to talk about BET‘s Karen and the new trailers for Hawkeye & The Matrix Resurrections, as well. Listen below or find the Julie Says So MOVIE MINUTE wherever you listen to podcasts.

It’s been a week since I saw Frozen 2 with my daughter and I’ve struggled to write the review ever since. I guess I just don’t want to admit how disappointed I am in this follow-up, or how badly it bummed out my 12-year-old. Continue reading →
My girlfriends have been asking me about this movie for months.
Julie, are you getting free passes to A Bad Moms Christmas? Can I get some if you do???
I’m not sure what it says about me, that my girlfriends hear BAD MOM and immediately think of ME, but…they’re right. I DO have free passes to see A Bad Moms Christmas Continue reading →
You thought you didn’t need a big-screen reboot of the classic TV show CHiPs and…well…you probably didn’t, but you’re getting one anyway. This CHiPs stars Dax Shepard and Michael Peña as members of the California Highway Patrol, but their origin story has been changed completely. We also get a visit from Kristen Bell, but I don’t think there will be any adorable sloth-moments this time around. If you’d like to see CHiPs EARLY and FOR FREE, click HERE to get your passes, then watch the trailer below. (CHiPs opens nationwide 3/24 and you can buy tickets HERE.)
I really wanted to like The Boss. I promise I tried.
There were even a few things I LOVED about it, like the way it called out a certain cookie-selling group for being nothing but a corporation. The “Daffodils” in The Boss were supposedly empowering girls, but they were really just using them for child labor. The “Darnell Darlings” actually helped the girls instead, by selling brownies to start their own college funds.
I also loved how the “Darnell Darlings” weren’t portrayed as little princesses, but instead as foul-mouthed thugs. I have two little girls of my own, so I loved watching the “Darlings” throw down in an Anchorman-style street fight. (This probably says horrible things about my parenting skills.)
I am also a huge Melissa McCarthy fan and will cut her slack when most critics won’t, but this time, I just can’t. Continue reading →
I’ve made it abundantly clear that I LOVED Zootopia, right? Click HERE to read my review of it but all you really need to know is that it’s fantastic and that I gave Zootopia an A+. Yes, I’m aware that’s the second A+ I’ve given in recent weeks (I was pretty crazy about Deadpool too) but I’m not getting soft. That’s just how good Zootopia is and best of all I HAVE FREE PASSES! Click right HERE to grab those and then watch the trailer with me again. Omigod, THAT SLOTH!
Judy Hopps is a bunny with a dream. She wants to move to the big city and become the first ever Rabbit Police Officer, but no one believes she can. Even Judy’s parents tell her to give up her dream, but she’s a tough cookie who keeps on trying.
Sounds like a trite little bedtime story you’d read to your kids, but don’t be fooled. Zootopia is anything but trite with directors Byron Howard (Tangled, Bolt) and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph) steering the ship. Throw in a writing staff that includes Jim Reardon (WALL-E), Josie Trinidad (The Princess and the Frog) and Jennifer Lee (Frozen), and you just might have a classic on your hands. Because Zootopia isn’t just about Judy Hopps’ struggle to realize her dreams or the discrimination that holds her back. At it’s heart, Zootopia is about the ignorance and FEAR we are all capable of, and how often we let it guide us. Continue reading →
