Julie and Rebekah couldn’t wait to discuss the Severance season finale and share details about the new Spirit Halloween movie (allegedly opening this October!). They dished on Renee Zellweggar’s The Thing About Pam and A24‘s new kids’ flick Marcel the Shell with Shoes On. Julie will also let you know if Robert Eggers’ latest The Northman is worth your time and money.

Rapid Review: “The Northman”

The Northman stars Alexander Skarsgård as Amleth, a Viking who hopes to avenge the murder of his father, the King (Ethan Hawke). He also plans to save his mother (Nicole Kidman), who has been forced to marry the murderer, also the King’s brother. Along the way Amleth meets a beautiful witch (Anya Taylor-Joy), who offers him a brighter and less-deadly path in life. It’s the same Scandinavian legend that inspired Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and it could’ve seemd too familiar in another director’s hands.  Fortunately, Robert Eggers is steering this ship so The Northman is consistently fresh, even during its grimiest, blood-bath battles (of which there are many).

See “The Northman” EARLY & FOR FREE

I truly enjoyed The Witch and The Lighthouse (which is far better if you think of it as a dark-comedy) so I’m excited to see the latest from director Robert Eggers, The Northman. This one stars Alexander Skarsgård as a Viking who must avenge his father’s death with the help of a lovely witch (played by Anya Taylor-Joy). Nicole Kidman, Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe also star and those last two share a nude scene. If you’re thinking, “Is that supposed to be a selling-point?” I don’t really know but I do have passes to see The Northman EARLY and FOR FREE.

Bombshell

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Bombshell” EARLY & FOR FREE

Charlize Theron plays Megyn Kelly in Bombshell, and the transformation she makes for the role is staggering. Theron apparently used eight different prosthetic pieces to complete the look, which was so effective that costar Nicole Kidman didn’t even recognize her on set! Theron, Kidman and Margot Robbie play some of the women who took on Fox News head Roger Ailes in Bombshell, and I’ve got passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →

Goldfinch

If you belong to a book-club, you are pumped about The Goldfinch. This one stars Ansel Egort, Finn Wolfhard and Nicole Kidman and is based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same name. I wish I could tell you more about it but this book has been sitting unread on my nightstand for about 2 straight years now (true story). So, who wants to see The Goldfinch EARLY and FOR FREE?

Hart & Cranston

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See Bryan Cranston & Kevin Hart in “The Upside” EARLY & FOR FREE

The Upside is actually a remake of an excellent French film from 2011 called The Intouchables. It was also about a wealthy man who becomes a quadriplegic after an accident and hires a caregiver with a questionable past. I haven’t seen the remake with Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart yet, but The Intouchables was one of my favorite films that year (it was even nominated for a Golden Globe). So, who wants to see The Upside EARLY and FOR FREE? Good because I have passes for screenings all over Texas! Continue reading →
