Who would’ve guessed that this year’s Oscar race would include TWO pictures about the Allied forces’ struggle at Dunkirk? Darkest Hour tells the story from Winston Churchill’s perspective, and how the newly appointed Prime Minister dealt with advancing Nazi forces and the threat of invasion. Darkest Hour stars Gary Oldman, but don’t expect to see him anywhere in it. Nope, Oldman disappears so completely into character with Winston Churchill, he’s almost guaranteed a Best Actor nomination. Darkest Hour is also on many critics’ short-list for Best Picture, so you’d be smart to grab FREE PASSES to see it. Continue reading →
No, it isn’t Boss Baby. It isn’t Baby Mama, either. While we’re at it, Baby Driver isn’t Bridget Jones’s Baby, Rosemary’s Baby or any other BABY movie that would make you readily dismiss it. Baby Driver is actually the latest from Writer/Director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs the World) and it tells the story of a young get-away driver who is pulled into a dangerous heist. Ansel Egort plays Baby alongside a cast including Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey, Flea, Jon Hamm and a whole host of other people you’d like to have drinks with. If you still aren’t interested in Baby Driver, know that critics are FLIPPING OUT over it. Here’s just one of the raves from Jada Yuan at Vulture.com:
“Plays out like blasting your coolest friend’s record collection in your car at 100 mph on the Atlanta freeway while cops close in on all sides – essentially what happens in the movie again and again, to always-riveting effect.”
So, NOW do you want to see Baby Driver EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Not very long ago, I wrote an article about the movies I’m REALLY excited to see in the next 6 months. If you missed it, you can find that by clicking HERE (and you should because I had a blast writing it).
One of the films I gushed about was Pride, Prejudice and Zombies, which is obviously the Jane Austen story, but with some zombies thrown in for good measure. I’m thrilled about this because it sounds absolutely ridiculous (in the best possible way) and because it stars Lily James and Lena Headey, my 2 most recent girl-crushes.
The screening is February 2nd and you can get your passes by clicking HERE, but get there EARLY. These passes will get you in for free but they won’t reserve your seats. Something tells me that EVERYONE will want to see this one, so get in line ASAP. It’s at the AMC Northpark so at least you can get overpriced drinks from the bar. Print your passes and then watch the trailer below.
