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 →
If you aren’t excited about Spider-Man: Homecoming, it’s probably because you didn’t see his triumphant return in Captain America: Civil War. Yes, I also rolled my eyes at the thought of it, but my Spidey-apathy was abated when young Tom Holland donned that stretchy suit. Good Lord, that boy is adorable. If you missed it, click HERE to see a compilation of his Captain America: Civil War scenes. Or don’t. I mean, then you’ll just want to SEESpider-Man:Homecoming and I simply don’t have enough free passes for EVERYONE. Continue reading →
I was on Good Morning Texas today to talk about the weekend box-office and all the great movies that opened this month. Yes, we might be officially out of Oscar Movie Season, but there are still some good flicks to see, like 20th Century Women, Hidden Figures, The Founder and Split. Click HERE to watch my reviews, then check the Free Movie Pass page to see what I’m giving away now. Hey, if the upcoming movies aren’t that great, you might as well see them for free!
It’s funny how excited MY KIDS are about seeing The Founder. It’s not that they love McDonald’s so much (they prefer Chik-fil-A), they just like to fantasize about how much money the fast-food giant makes in a day. See, The Founder tells the true (but slightly embellished) story of Ray Kroc (played by Michael Keaton), and how he got two brothers to sell their Southern California burger joint. Kroc then turned it into the gazillion-dollar industry we know as McDonald’s, so you can just imagine how those brothers felt. If you’d like to see The FounderEARLY and FOR FREE, click HERE to grab your passes, then watch the trailer below. Man, Michael Keaton is fantastic. Even when he’s playing SKEEVY!
Have you ever been so excited about a movie that you wanted to grab everyone you saw as you left the theater and scream, “GO SEE THAT MOVIE?!!!”
Well, that’s exactly how I felt as I left Spotlight.
It stars Michael Keaton as Walter “Robby” Robinson, who was in charge of the special projects “Spotlight” division of The Boston Globe. Robinson and his team of reporters (played by Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams and Brian d’Arcy James) launched an investigation into predatory Catholic priests and how they were being protected by the church. We all know what this eventually leads to but watching it unfold is incredible, especially when you see how many times it almost wasn’t reported. It’s also shocking how many high-level people insisted that the problem of abuse in the church wasn’t even worth talking about. Continue reading →
I saw the movie Spotlight a few months ago and have been talking about it ever since. You think I’m kidding? Ask a friend of mine, ANY FRIEND OF MINE and they will tell you that I can’t shut up about Spotlight. Why? Because it’s awesome…a damn near PERFECT movie, that’s why. One you will definitely hear mentioned on Oscar night, as well. Yeah, THAT’S how good it is.
Spotlight is about the Boston Globe reporters who discovered a massive Catholic Church cover-up. They were the ones who told the world about predatory priests and how they were being protected by their churches. It’s based on actual events (isn’t every good movie right now?) and yes, you will probably be angry all over again when you walk out of the theater. You’ll also be happy though, because you paid nothing to see one of the best movies of 2015!
All you have to do is click HERE to grab your free movie passes. I actually begged for these because I figured it was a nice way to pay back everyone who had to listen to me blab on and on about Spotlight. Take a minute to watch the trailer too because damn…even IT is phenomenal!
Am I the only one who thought Gru created the Minions?
Well, we were wrong because according to Minions the movie, they evolved like everything else. They even walked out of the sea speaking their own weird language, which appears to be a mix of French, Spanish, English and Drunk. It’s unclear if the Minions procreated over time (I couldn’t find a single female in the bunch) but they spent the rest of their existence on Earth searching for a Bad Guy to serve. Minions the movie, you see, takes place pre-Gru, so they have yet to find their ultimate Master. A few scouts are sent in search of one, which is why Kevin, Stuart and Bob end up in 1960’s London, courting Scarlet Overkill as their new Villain. Continue reading →
