Most film-fans fall into 3 categories, when it comes to Pokémon Detective Pikachu. You’re either a fan of Pokémon in general and excited to see it, the parent of a Pokémon fan and therefore FORCED to see it, or you’re going to pretend the film doesn’t exist and go about your day.
I am speaking to the FIRST 2 GROUPS when I say I have passes to see Pokémon Detective Pikachu EARLY and FOR FREE. Continue reading →
Did you hear that Deadpool 2 is being re-released as a PG-13 movie? Yep, Once Upon a Deadpool is a cleaned up version of the film AND it will include 20 minutes of new footage. It opens December 12th and is a fundraiser for F*ck Cancer, which will get $1 from every ticket sold. That’s why I feel kind of weird about giving away tickets to see Once Upon a Deadpool. If you’d like to see it EARLY and FOR FREE, Continue reading →
There are 3 kinds of parents in the world:
Those who let their kids watch anything, those who won’t let their kids watch anything, and parents like me who fall in the middle. We tend to stress over the sex and violence our youngsters will see onscreen, but we still want to watch great movies with them. The MPAA rating system only works so much for Moms and Dads like us because we might not mind violence and profanity, but we still aren’t ready to sit through heated sex scenes with our older kids. So, what do parents like US do with a movie like Deadpool 2? Continue reading →
Rebekah Black and I saw The Hitman’s Bodyguard last night, then had some drinks and fought about Samuel L. Jackson’s real age. We also discussed this week’s Women Texas Film Festival, as well as the tragic news from the set of Deadpool 2 Monday. Check it all out in the podcast and don’t forget to visit the Free Movie Passes page to see what I’m giving away next. Keep your fingers crossed that I’ll get passes to see Stephen King’s It soon!
If The Hitman’s Bodyguard movie trailer was any more fun, it’d need to come with adult diapers to catch that unexpected tinkle from giggling too hard. Too gross? Well, just watch the trailer below and then tell me in wrong. Continue reading →
We all agree that every movie would be just a little better if Matt Damon starred in it, right? Except maybe Deadpool, which is featured along with Jason Bourne on the Movie Segment this week. I also have one for the kids that you’ve probably completely forgotten about. Catch the JULIE SAYS SO Movie Segment on Today with Kandace weekdays at 8:30am on KTXA 21.

And check out that screen shot below. Damn Sexy!
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.

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 →
