The Julie Says So MOVIE MINUTE Podcast is playing catch-up this week, with reviews of Queenpins and Malignant, but we also have a review of The Eyes of Tammy Faye, courtesy of Bryan Kluger. We were jazzed to talk about BET‘s Karen and the new trailers for Hawkeye & The Matrix Resurrections, as well. Listen below or find the Julie Says So MOVIE MINUTE wherever you listen to podcasts.

Still not sure if you want to see Black Widow in the theater or stream it at home? Julie has a review for you! She and Rebekah Black also discuss HBO‘s new series White Lotus and break down expectations of Disney‘s Jungle Cruise, starring Dwayne Johnson & Emily Blunt. Julie then talks to James Faust about the Dallas International Film Festival and the future of indie films (like the much-anticipated Coda) in a post-Covid, streaming world. They wrap it all up with the new Anthony Bourdain documentary Roadrunner, which hits theaters July 16th. Listen below or wherever you find podcasts!Continue reading →
Jagger had me on 102.1 the Edge today to discuss Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and…well, it got ugly. I got angry, started ranting and the BLEEP button was used. Often. Sorry about that but it tends to happen any time I try to talk about this movie. Thanks again to Jagger and Josh for having me on and next time, I’ll try to keep it in check.
Some very special guests joined Rebekah Black and I at the Zoolander 2 screening last night. My good friends Kristen and Bobby Lonnergan came along, as well as long-time Movie-Buddy, Kristi Bernstein. I love bringing Kristi to screenings because she always fills her purse with movie treats before leaving the house. She provided Mardi Gras themed Jell-O shots last night, and I’m proud to say we polished them off before the movie even started. That’s why the podcast below is a little rowdier than usual. Thanks for listening to our Zoolander 2 review and WARNING: Don’t listen to this one with the kids around. I spilled a few dirty secrets about Owen Wilson. Enjoy!
I just talked to my buddies Trudi & Jim at WCSX Detroit about all the movies that are coming out this week. Well, we got a little sidetracked talking about Michael Fassbender’s unit, but we mostly discussed The Choice, Hail, Caesar! and Pride Prejudice and Zombies. You can listen to that by clicking HERE, then take a minute to cruise the website for Free Movie Passes. I can hook you up with Zoolander 2 and How To Be Single freebies, so don’t leave without grabbing those!
I sat down with Rebekah Black and Film Critic Matt Mungle (The Mungle Show) after watching Chris Pine’s new movie, The Finest Hours. If you have any plans to see it, you should probably listen to our podcast first. You should also try forgive us for the trash we talked while taping it. I started off by gossiping about a Casey Affleck lawsuit I couldn’t entirely remember (here’s the story: http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20404992,00.html) and then we said some really nasty stuff about Chris Pine’s performance. Oh yeah, we’re going straight to Hell for that one. We also laughed so hard that I repeatedly scared the other people sitting in the Food Court, so sorry about that. Here’s our review and watch out because SPOILER ALERT!
This week on the Podcast, I review The 5th Wave, Dirty Grandpa and Son of Saul. I’ll also talk about the #OscarSoWhite controversy, since Straight Outta Compton is now available on DVD. I’ll also answer some emailed questions about The Martian, because people are still asking me if it’s appropriate for kids. It really all depends on your kid…and just how much you swear around them. I’d also like to share this article with Scott from Dallas, who asked if I knew how solid the science behind The Martian is. Scott, bless your little heart for assuming I’m smart enough to answer that question. Instead, here’s an interview with Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, because HE would know! http://www.cbsnews.com/news/neil-degrasse-tyson-science-behind-the-martian/
I talked to Gene & Julie on Mix 101.5 in Raleigh, North Carolina recently. I do this on a regular basis but it’s still kind of crazy. I mean, I’ve known those guys FOREVER, like back when we were all single people (most people think G&J are a bizarre form of twins who were born married). It’s also crazy because I was born in North Carolina and have elementary school buddies who live in Raleigh and can listen when I’m on-the-air. I don’t know if they actually DO listen but I still think that’s kind of cool.
I did a “Summer Wrap-Up” segment with G&J this week, where we discussed movies you need to see in the theater before the season ends. I took most of July and parts of August off, so I missed some movies that have gotten FANTASTIC reviews. I made a special list for those guys, as well. You’ll have to forgive me for my #1 pick and don’t worry. I’ve already gotten LOADS of flack about that one. Click HERE for a link to the podcast, featuring my Top 5 Summer Movies Not To Miss. Thanks again to Gene & Julie. I always love talking to you guys!
Finally saw Jurassic World last night, which is a movie I’ve been anxiously anticipating ever since I heard they were making it. I just about lost it when they announced CHRIS PRATT would be the leading man. What could possibly go wrong?
I sat down with Rebekah Black, Sybil Summers and Richie Whitt after the movie and we discussed our thoughts. Our reviews were mixed, much like our drinks. Continue reading →
