Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox is a big movie for my family. We’ve watched it soooo many times and throw quotes like, “You cussing with me,” and “HOT BOX” around on a regular basis. That’s why we’re all going a little nuts about Isle of Dogs, which hits theaters March 23rd. This one’s about a kid in Japan who loses his dog and has to find it on an island that’s entirely populated by dogs. I know. It’s so Wes Anderson that I feel like Bill Murray just walked up and whacked me with a roll of eclectic wallpaper. It’s probably going to be great though and, if you’re like me, you kind of have to see every movie Wes Anderson makes anyhow. So, want to see Isle of Dogs EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Rough Night stars Scarlett Johansson, Zoë Kravitz, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell and Ilana Glazer and I would love a night out with any of them. Well, maybe not Scarlett Johansson. She seems like that one really hot friend who goes out with you but spends the whole night texting her boyfriend. Scarlett would sit in the corner ignoring everyone while Kate, Ilana, Jillian and Zoë planned something wild, fun, and probably illegal…like killing a stripper. BY ACCIDENT, of course! So, who wants to see Rough Night EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Yes, I just gave away a major plot point for The Zookeeper’s Wife and you know why?
Because people get pissed when you kill the animals! Just ask John Wick. Continue reading →
I think I’ve heard more about the Ghost in the Shell controversy than I’ve heard about the movie itself. See, Ghost in the Shell is based on a popular Japanese manga and the main character, Major, has always been considered Japanese. There were cries of whitewashing when Scarlett Johansson was cast in the role, but not everyone agrees. In fact, the director of the original anime, Mamoru Oshii, had this to say to IGN.com: Continue reading →

I saw Captain American: Civil War last night and, I’m not gonna lie, I was crazy pumped. It was extra special though, because I got to see it with my three favorite movie buddies; Rebekah Black and my daughters, Emma and Lucy. You can hear what we thought about the movie in the podcast below and let me be clear. Ant Man didn’t exactly steal the show, but, in a split second, he managed to become our favorite Avenger. Enjoy our review and remember to share your own thoughts on the movie in the Comments, once you’ve seen Captain America: Civil War.
Kids are spoiled when it comes to movies these days. If I compare what passed as Kids’ Movies when I was young (Benji, Willow, Ernest Goes to Camp) to what kids see today (Inside Out, Zootopia, Big Hero 6), I can’t help but get jealous. Even sweet and beautifully animated films like The Good Dinosaur get tossed into the “Meh” pile because they’re not as great as Wreck It Ralph or Frozen.
And now they have The Jungle Book. Sigh…it almost isn’t fair.
People have been asking me for months if this one is too intense for kids, which is understandable given the snake and tiger-heavy ads. My daughters and I saw The Jungle Book last night though, and can finally answer those questions. There are two things I should mention first, though. If you DO decide to see The Jungle Book, pay the extra money for IMAX-3D. It’s worth it. Also, forgive Lucy for being sassy and surly in this podcast. That kid needed to go to bed!
New in theaters this week is the highly anticipated sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. If your family is like mine, this movie and whether or not my kids can see it has been a constant topic of discussion. Fortunately, I already saw the film so I can give you the low-down. Continue reading →
I went to see Tony Zazza because he SAID he wanted to talk about the Avengers: Age of Ultron. HE LIED! Evidently, Tony had a “bone to pick” with me and boy, did he ever! I thought he might jump across the desk & stab me with a Sharpie at one point. Click HERE and go to Podcast #24 to hear what happened but WATCH OUT for that Tony Zazza. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry!
I didn’t like superhero movies in 2012, when I went to see the first Avengers. I remember looking at my movie-buddy Rebekah Black and saying, “This is gonna suck.”
What can I say? Sometimes I’m really REALLY wrong.
We were BEYOND pumped about this new treat from Joss Whedon but also a little scared. Would it compare to the first? Would it suck so bad that we’d stop liking the Avengers altogether? What if it was so awful that even THOR lost his sex-appeal. Yeah, that’s not gonna happen but listen to the podcast to hear our thoughts.
