(OK, so I wrote this right before Thanksgiving, but the list still applies. I would only add Jackie with Natalie Portman this week, IF it happens to be playing in your town.)

What are you supposed to do with your relatives, once you’ve eaten all the food and run out of things to talk about? You GO TO THE MOVIES, of course! The sooner the better too, before anyone starts talking about politics again. Here’s my list of the Top 8 Movies to See Over Thanksgiving Weekend, which has a little something for everyone.

Andrew Garfield- Hacksaw Ridge

MOVIE REVIEW: Mel Gibson Works Magic with “Hacksaw Ridge”

Mel Gibson has turned into some kind of magician. I say this because he’s done a handful of incredible and somewhat inexplicable things with his latest movie, Hacksaw Ridge. It’s the true story of WWII Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, who served during the battle of Okinawa. Doss was a Conscientious Objector who refused to use a weapon, but he was still awarded the Medal of Honor.

This is Gibson’s first time back in the Director’s Chair since 2006’s Apocalypto. His comfort level though, virtually erases that ten-year absence. It’s one of the first surprises offered up by Hacksaw Ridge, which opens to a horrific battle scene. Imagine the gore of Braveheart, but with the intensity and explosions of Saving Private Ryan. Gibson wastes no time introducing the horrors of war, where the Medic Doss is trying desperately to save his men. Continue reading →

Oscar Contenders to See this November

I can’t tell you how much I love this time of year. There’s a chill in the air (OK, not really but there’s the promise of one), PSLs are everywhere and I can no longer take my youngest to Walgreen’s because their scary Halloween decorations are out. The BEST part about this time of year though, is how the movie studios start releasing GREAT FILMS. Yes, Oscar Season is right around the corner and it’s packed with movies you currently know nothing about. Some of the films getting the most Oscar Buzz will be released next month, which is why I compiled this list of Oscar Contenders to See this November. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Hacksaw Ridge” ON ME

Are you still mad at Mel Gibson?

If so, I get it. He said some pretty awful things during that drunk-driving arrest in 2006. You might want to prepare yourself though, because Mel Gibson is back on the scene.

In fact, he directed a movie that you probably already want to see called Hacksaw Ridge. It stars Andrew Garfield as WWII Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, who became the first Conscientious Objector to win the Medal of Honor.

Gibson made this project with Producer David Permut, who is both gay and Jewish but still has glowing things to say about the man after working with him. Hacksaw Ridge is also getting Oscar caliber praise, which may put Gibson in the running for another statue (You remember how much you loved Braveheart, don’t you?).

If you still don’t want to forgive him, I completely understand. Even better, I have a way for you to see Hacksaw Ridge without giving Mel Gibson any of your money. Just click HERE to get your FREE MOVIE PASSES, then watch the trailer below. Wow, it’s kind of like being a Conscientious Objector!
