MOVIE REVIEW: Life’s too Hard to NOT See “Thor: Ragnarok”

I’ll talk about Thor: Ragnarok in a moment but first I’d like to address the big picture…
LIFE is hard.
If you need proof, just look around you. Everyone I know is going through something awful right now. I have friends who are fighting cancer, and friends who are caring for parents who are fighting cancer. I have friends who have lost their jobs, and friends who are trapped in jobs that they HATE. I have friends who worry desperately for their children, and who can’t turn the TV on at night because the bad news they see freaks them out even more.
In other words, everything seems to suck right now, for just about everyone.
Don’t we all deserve something GOOD? Don’t we deserve a moment to escape and feel light, or powerful, or maybe to just laugh our asses off?
Now, I’m ready to talk about Thor: Ragnarok. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Thor: Ragnorak” EARLY & FOR FREE

My daughters and I have been pumped about Thor: Ragnorak for AGES. You know what has us the most excited though? Not the fact that Mark Ruffalo shows up as The Hulk, or that Tom Hiddleston is back as Loki. Nor were we jazzed that Cate Blanchett plays Hela the Goddess of Death or that Benedict Cumberbatch makes an appearance as Dr. Strange. No, the thing that has us excitedly tittering over Thor: Ragnorak is the fact that Chris Hemsworth cut his hair. And it looks GOOD. Sorry, not my proudest moment but it’s true. If Hemsworth’s new ‘do isn’t enough to get you excited about Thor: Ragnorak as well, maybe you haven’t heard that it’s getting rave reviews, or that I’ve got passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE.

Mommy-Movie-Review: Is “Spider-Man: Homecoming” OK for Kids?

Before we discuss taking your kids to see Spider-Man: Homecoming, we should probably address how YOU feel about it. Odds are, you’re still confused about the need for a reboot (especially since they JUST rebooted it with Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker) and, as a result, you’re apathetic about the whole thing.

Let me clue you in to a few solid reasons for you to NOT be apathetic about Spider-Man: Homecoming. Continue reading →

MOMMY MOVIE REVIEW: Is “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” Kid Friendly?

Writing a Movie Review for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is kind of like critiquing your 7-year-old niece’s ballet recital. SURE you could say that it’s smugly self-aware, overly sentimental and too cutesy for it’s own good. You could even say that her performance is derivative of her last recital, but isn’t that the point? Aren’t we all coming back for Round 2 because we simply want MORE of what we got last time? That’s why I’m going to skip the nit-picking and just give Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 an “A.” I’ve already seen it twice and had so much stinking fun both times that I don’t even care about its imperfections. I suspect you don’t either but there is one question I am consistently asked about this movie:

Is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 okay for kids? Continue reading →

Mommy-Movie-Review: Is “Logan” OK for Kids?

Logan stars Hugh Jackman, in his final turn as the iconic X-Man, Wolverine. This time around, he’s caring for an ailing Professor X and struggling with his own deteriorating body, when he meets a young mutant in need of help. What follows is a surprisingly bleak but truly fantastic movie. I gave Logan an A+ after seeing it and it now ties with Deadpool as my favorite superhero movie EVER. Logan shares other similarities with Deadpool, like a foul-mouth, a penchant for blood-baths and that R-rating we love so much. Does that mean your kids, who are no-doubt begging to see it, should stay away from Logan? Continue reading →

PODCAST: A Breathless Review of “Doctor Strange”

I FINALLY got to see Doctor Strange with my daughter Emma, and my other favorite movie buddy, Rebekah Black. Does it live up to the hype? Is it worth the extra cash to see it in IMAX 3-D? Is there a reason I keep saying “I GOTTA SAY?” Listen to our Doctor Strange podcast to find out!

“X-Men: Apocalypse” & The Curse of the TRILOGY


Being the third in a trilogy is kind of like being the youngest kid in an over-achieving family. You’ll always be compared to your siblings and no matter what you do or how well you do it, you’ll never quite live up to them. This effect is magnified if you happen to be a slacker who lives in the basement and smokes pot all day.

X-Men: Apocalypse isn’t exactly the basement dwelling pot-smoker, but it’s no Eagle Scout either. Continue reading →
