Maybe you’re one of the people who are a little ticked off at Matt Damon right now, for any number of reasons. I get it. I’ve got a few questions of my own for him but, for some reason, that isn’t hampering my excitement for his new movie Suburbicon. Maybe it’s because this one is directed by George Clooney, which he wrote alongside Joel and Ethan Coen. Maybe it’s the addition of Oscar Isaac, because you know I’ve got a problem with him (read about that HERE). Maybe it’s because I can’t quite figure out what’s going on in the trailer. It doesn’t matter either way because now I HAVE to see Suburbicon. You’re in luck if you feel the same way because I have passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE. Continue reading →
Have you ever been watching one of those entertainment shows, like Access Hollywood or Entertainment Tonight, when they go Behind the Scenes at a movie location? Sometimes they’ll show a car chase being filmed and you realize how small and choreographed everything is, compared to how it looks on the big screen.
Well, that’s how I felt while watching Matt Damon in Jason Bourne.
In this edition of the Bourne series, Jason Bourne is back and…
You know what? I’m not even going to tell you because it’s so predictable, you could probably come up with the plot on your own. Continue reading →
I was on Good Morning Texas today, talking about some big upcoming movies as well as reviewing a few others. If you’d like to find out what’s opening in July OR hear my thoughts on The Legend of Tarzan and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, just click HERE.
I also previewed a new scary movie called Lights Out, but unfortunately all the free passes I had to see it are gone. Apologies also to director David Sandberg for almost forgetting his name! I decided to make up for it by posting the original short film Lights Out is based on, but prepare yourself. It’s scary!
We all agree that every movie would be just a little better if Matt Damon starred in it, right? Except maybe Deadpool, which is featured along with Jason Bourne on the Movie Segment this week. I also have one for the kids that you’ve probably completely forgotten about. Catch the JULIE SAYS SO Movie Segment on Today with Kandace weekdays at 8:30am on KTXA 21.

People ask me all the time if I still talk to Tony Zazza. He’s been my on-and-off radio husband for YEARS, but not all radio teams actually LIKE each other off-the-air. I actually DO like Tony though, and have kept in touch with him since he started a new morning show in Melbourne, Florida. He’s at WA1A 107.1 and you can listen to him online by clicking HERE.
I talk to Tony all the time, giving him updates on the radio-gossip around Texas while he tells me how awesome his new co-host, Cheree is. Whatever. (She’s actually really sweet, and pretty too…dammit.) Anyhow, Tony and Cheree have had me on a few times to talk about movies lately and I LOVE IT! It’s like having drinks with your ex-husband and his new wife. Wait, no it’s not like that AT ALL. In fact, Tony recorded our chat about The Martian so you can hear for yourself. You’ll probably want to buy advance tickets to The Martian too, since it’s sure to be a big-seller and you can do that by clicking HERE.
The Martian stars Matt Damon as an astronaut who, through a series of unfortunate events, is left stranded on Mars. He has a limited amount of resources so he must use his wits and vast knowledge of science to survive. It doesn’t really sound like the makings of a best-selling book, much less a blockbuster movie, but that’s exactly what The Martian has become. It will also most likely be a contender once Oscar season kicks in and is already on the everyone’s short-list of Must See Movies. Even I gave it an A+ and called it an “instant classic,” but here’s the next question: Is The Martian okay for my kids? It IS rated PG-13 after all, so what will my children be shown while watching it, other than a man’s incredible struggle to survive?
I actually had this conversation with my daughters (ages 8 & 11) today because they are both DYING to see The Martian. There are 2 things working against parents like me though, who want to share this movie with their kids: The length and the language. Continue reading →
It’s been AGES since Boozy Movies got together for a movie and booze but we FINALLY did for The Martian. I have a few disclaimers though, before you listen to the podcast:
1) I say, about midway through the review, “That’s how smart guys are.” I meant to say “That’s how smart ASTRONAUTS are.” No, I don’t think that all men are smart enough to stay alive on Mars. Also,
2) Rebekah laughs about the movie He Named Me Malala at the end of the review but she DIDN’T KNOW WHAT IT WAS ABOUT. I told her after we stopped recording and she said, “Now I feel like a dick.” She isn’t. She’s actually really nice but I’m going to make her see He Named Me Malala with me anyway. Here’s our review and if you hear anything else in there that offends you, it was probably intended. ENJOY!
