WHAT TO RENT NOW: “Julie Says So” Top 5 DVDs (for the last weekend of April)

Yes, it IS the last weekend of April and though you SHOULD be planting veggies in the garden, you’re probably sleeping off a “Pre-Cinco de Mayo Party” hangover instead.

Hey, if you choose to spend the weekend in bed with a remote in one hand and a bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos in the other, I am not gonna judge. In fact, I’ll even help you out with a list of DVDs you should be watching while you sweat-out those Palomas. (Seriously, no judgment. Those drinks are goooood.)

Look, I’m not saying The Forest is a great movie. Hell, it’s barely even a good movie, but the true story of the Aokigahara Forest is pretty incredible. The Forest is worth watching for that alone, but you have to follow it up with the Vice documentary below. Find my original review HERE, if you need to read more about how The Forest is NOT a great movie.

MOVIE REVIEW: “Deadpool” Gets Nasty (I mean really REALLY Nasty)

We all know that February is a dumping ground for movies. I try to temper my expectations for any film coming out right now because odds are…it’s gonna suck. There are those rare occasions though, when studios slip in a surprise and catch us all off guard. That would be the case for Deadpool. In fact, I can already hear the jokes Deadpool himself would make about that “slip in a surprise” comment.

Deadpool is technically a superhero, but one with a mean streak and a potty mouth. He was Wade Wilson, a special-forces operative until he was dishonorably discharged and later diagnosed with terminal cancer. Wilson tries an experimental treatment that kills the cancer AND gives him extraordinary powers, but it disfigures him in the process. Deadpool then spends the rest of the film tracking down the bad-guys who left him this way, and pining for one true love, Vanessa (played by the fabulous Morena Baccarin).

That sounds like essentially every other superhero plot EVER, but Deadpool is different because of the rules that it breaks. Continue reading →

I just talked to my buddies Trudi & Jim at WCSX Detroit about all the movies that are coming out this week.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Deadpool” On Me!

Can I tell you how ticked-off my 11-year-old is about NOT GETTING TO SEE Deadpool? She simply can’t believe that anyone would release an R-rated Marvel Movie, and though I sympathize with her…I love it.

According to the press release Ryan Reynolds plays “former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.” I don’t relish the idea of what happens to Ryan Reynolds’ pretty face, but this looks like loads of fun and GUESS WHO HAS FREE PASSES! The screening is February 12th and YES, there will be a line to get in so show up early. Click HERE for your passes, then take a minute to watch the trailer. Do it AWAY from the kids though because it, like the movie, IS RATED-R…which means they can’t see it. (evil laugh)
