Ocean's 8

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Ocean’s 8” EARLY & FOR FREE

Dammit, this movie had better be good.
Sorry, but I’ve got some mounting concerns about Ocean’s 8, even as I watch Sarah Paulson calmly promote it on TV. Every time Sandra Bullock shows up looking sheik and relaxed on some late-night talk show, I tell myself that I’ll probably love Ocean’s 8. I smile as a sparkling Cate Blanchett plugs the movie and chugs beer with Jimmy Fallon, but in my heart I think, “Please…don’t let this movie suck.”
Because Ocean’s 8 can’t be just another Ocean’s movie with famous women in place of famous men. It can’t be a well-shot fashion show where glamorous women smirk as they rob other glamorous women. It has to be smart. It has to be funny. It has to tell a story we haven’t seen before and more importantly, Ocean’s 8 needs to make a statement about women and where we stand today.
And, if I was being completely honest, I’d admit that I need Ocean’s 8 to be even better than the Ocean’s movies that came before it.
No small task, right?
So, who wants to see Ocean’s 8 EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “A Wrinkle in Time” EARLY & FOR FREE

My kids are bigger cynics than I am, when it comes to movies.
They see almost as many films as I do and have had their hearts broken by more than one (read Emma’s review of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children HERE for a taste of that). The girls know that it’s often best to keep your expectations low, which might be why I’m struggling to get them excited about A Wrinkle in Time. They enjoyed the book by Madeleine L’Engle, but know how hard it is for movies to live up to the originals. They’re too young to appreciate Ava DuVernay and how cool it is that she’s directing this, or to understand why I’m excited to see Mindy Kaling on the big screen. In fact, the only person my kids are pumped about seeing in A Wrinkle in Time is Oprah Winfrey, but it might be because of her I Love Bread vine.

It doesn’t really matter because I’m making them see A Wrinkle in Time with me anyhow and YOU CAN TOO, thanks to this stack of FREE MOVIE PASSES I just got! Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEW: “The Night Before”- Well, THAT Was A Surprise

I’m not sure WHY I expected Seth Rogen’s latest comedy The Night Before to suck, but I did.

I expected it to suck even though it also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who was in one of my favorite Seth Rogen movies ever (50/50– Pick it up if you haven’t seen it). I expected it to suck even though it also stars my new favorite Avenger, Anthony Mackie, who can currently do no wrong in my book. Maybe I expected The Night Before to suck because the concept seems so thin. Three friends meet on Christmas Eve every year to get hammered. Sounds like an excuse for marginally-funny “look how wasted we are” shenanigans and cameos by Rogen’s celebrity pals, right? That’s exactly what The Night Before is, but it’s also a whole lot more.

MOMMY-MOVIE-REVIEW: Disney Pixar Hits Puberty With “Inside Out”

Pixar hasn’t had the best luck with film critics recently. It’s last three movies Cars 2, Brave and Monsters University were met with mixed reviews and had some wondering if the animation giant had lost it’s edge. Now they’ve given us Inside Out, a film about an 11-year-old’s emotions which is Pixar’s most ambitious project to date. It also has film critics frantically searching Thesaurus for new ways to say “sweet” and “inventive.” Continue reading →
