Andrew Garfield- Hacksaw Ridge

MOVIE REVIEW: Mel Gibson Works Magic with “Hacksaw Ridge”

Mel Gibson has turned into some kind of magician. I say this because he’s done a handful of incredible and somewhat inexplicable things with his latest movie, Hacksaw Ridge. It’s the true story of WWII Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, who served during the battle of Okinawa. Doss was a Conscientious Objector who refused to use a weapon, but he was still awarded the Medal of Honor.

This is Gibson’s first time back in the Director’s Chair since 2006’s Apocalypto. His comfort level though, virtually erases that ten-year absence. It’s one of the first surprises offered up by Hacksaw Ridge, which opens to a horrific battle scene. Imagine the gore of Braveheart, but with the intensity and explosions of Saving Private Ryan. Gibson wastes no time introducing the horrors of war, where the Medic Doss is trying desperately to save his men. Continue reading →

Oscar Contenders to See this November

I can’t tell you how much I love this time of year. There’s a chill in the air (OK, not really but there’s the promise of one), PSLs are everywhere and I can no longer take my youngest to Walgreen’s because their scary Halloween decorations are out. The BEST part about this time of year though, is how the movie studios start releasing GREAT FILMS. Yes, Oscar Season is right around the corner and it’s packed with movies you currently know nothing about. Some of the films getting the most Oscar Buzz will be released next month, which is why I compiled this list of Oscar Contenders to See this November. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Hacksaw Ridge” ON ME

Are you still mad at Mel Gibson?

If so, I get it. He said some pretty awful things during that drunk-driving arrest in 2006. You might want to prepare yourself though, because Mel Gibson is back on the scene.

In fact, he directed a movie that you probably already want to see called Hacksaw Ridge. It stars Andrew Garfield as WWII Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, who became the first Conscientious Objector to win the Medal of Honor.

Gibson made this project with Producer David Permut, who is both gay and Jewish but still has glowing things to say about the man after working with him. Hacksaw Ridge is also getting Oscar caliber praise, which may put Gibson in the running for another statue (You remember how much you loved Braveheart, don’t you?).

If you still don’t want to forgive him, I completely understand. Even better, I have a way for you to see Hacksaw Ridge without giving Mel Gibson any of your money. Just click HERE to get your FREE MOVIE PASSES, then watch the trailer below. Wow, it’s kind of like being a Conscientious Objector!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Lights Out” ON ME!

Two years ago, director David Sandberg released a short film called Lights Out. The movie, which starred his wife Lotta Losten as a woman who is plagued by a figure in her darkened hallway, took social media by storm. I remember watching it at work and blurting out obscenities as the lights went out. If you’ve never seen it before, take the mere 2:42 required to watch it below. Believe me, it’s worth it.

Now you understand why Lights Out has been viewed over 12 million times around the world, right? They OBVIOUSLY had to make a full-length movie out of it but here’s the big surprise…

IT’S ACTUALLY GOOD!

In fact, the big screen version of Lights Out, which stars Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies, The Choice) and Billy Burke from Twilight, is currently trending at 100% on the Film Critics website Rotten Tomatoes. Even better, I have passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE so grab those by clicking HERE, then watch the Lights Out trailer below. Dammit, I might not ever sleep AGAIN!

INTERVIEW: Benjamin Walker & Teresa Palmer Discuss Their New Movie “The Choice”…and farts.

I got to sit down and chat with Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer today. You might know him better as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter or as Chris Hemsworth’s nemesis in The Heart of The Sea. You probably know her as the lovely Julie in Warm Bodies, but you will soon know them both as the stars of Nicholas Sparks’ new movie The Choice. I’d give you a description but it’s a Nichols Sparks flick coming out before Valentine’s Day. I’m sure you can figure it out.

Now, I’ve been interviewing celebrities for a million years and I have to say that they’re not always pleasant. Sometimes they don’t want to be there so they take it out on you. Other times they’re hungover, or just tired of being asked the same questions over and over again. Sometimes they’re simply assholes. I have to say that Ben Walker and Teresa Palmer are two of the sweetest celebrities…hell, PEOPLE I’ve ever met. They were both warm and funny and if I hadn’t been kicked out of the room by their “people,” I’d probably still be there chatting them up right now.

That’s why I feel kind of bad about posting this interview. See, somehow we started talking about farts and Ben told us about the Fart Contests he has with his wife. He just happens to be married to actress Kaya Scodelario from the Maze Runner movies.

Thanks again to Ben & Teresa for being so sweet and accommodating! Hope he doesn’t get into TOO much trouble!
