Honestly, the first time I saw the trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s new movie Rampage, I thought it was a joke. I mean, The Rock has a pet gorilla that goes radioactive and starts destroying a city? Then a giant, flying werewolf gets involved and the only person who can save us is, of course, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? It just SOUNDS like something from Saturday Night Light, right? But I felt the same way about San Andreas when I saw the trailer, and I ended up liking that movie. I also rolled my eyes so hard it hurt when I saw The Rock in the new Jumanji trailer, and I kind of loved that one. So who knows? Maybe Rampage will end up being fantastic, but we should probably see it FOR FREE, just in case. Continue reading →
Memorial Day Weekend seems like the perfect time to take your family to the movies, but picking a flick that’s worth the money AND appropriate for your whole crew can be tricky. That’s especially true in regards to this weekend’s new releases, Baywatch and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. While one of these would be fine for you and most of your kids, the other will teach them interesting new terms for certain body-parts. Continue reading →
The biggest trick to radio or television is to make it seem like you’re having so much fun that no one notices all the work that’s involved. It isn’t always easy, but SOME DAYS are so much fun that they don’t feel like work at all. That’s how it was this morning, when I reviewed Baywatch and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales for Good Morning Texas. I have Dawn Hensley (who worked the camera) and Paige McCoy Smith (who really IS that nice) to thank for that. I should also thank the Sandbar Cantina and Grill for mixing those fantastic cocktails for us! We only had one after the segment, but we were laughing like we’d been drinking them all morning!

It’s not unusual for me to cry at movies. I’m an emotional person and tend to get very wrapped up in the story. Sometimes I’ll cry, not because the movie is sad, but because something so joyous and true is happening onscreen that I can stop myself. On very rare occasions, I’m still crying as I walk out of the theater and, to the eye-rolling dismay of my children, in the car as we drive home.
Sometimes I tear up even as I write the review, as I am right now for Moana. Continue reading →
The ads for Central Intelligence say that sometimes you need a little Hart and a BIG Johnson. Makes you wonder if they didn’t just make the whole movie around that joke, right?
Well, the pairing of Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson certainly has fans excited, and so does the trailer featuring a pudgy, teenage version of “The Rock.” That might be worth the ticket price alone but lucky for us, we don’t have to pay for tickets! Just click HERE to snag your Central Intelligence passes, then watch the trailer again. And remember to get to the theater early! These will get you in for free but you’ll still need to get there in time to save your seat.
I was on Good Morning Texas today to talk about all the big movies that are coming out this month AND review The Conjuring 2. I also got to meet their brand new host Alanna Sarabia, who is so gorgeous that I just wanted to stare at her the whole time.

I saw San Andreas last night with Richie Whitt and Rebekah Black, then we had pink, fluffy cocktails and chatted about it. Sybil Summers didn’t join us this week because she thought it looked like a stupid movie. SHE WAS WRONG!
You could be like Sybil and assume the worst, or you could listen to our podcast and find out for sure.
Make sure you grab free passes to see Melissa McCarthy in Spy with us NEXT week. You can do that by clicking HERE. Richie Whitt assumes THAT ONE will be bad but you know what happens when you ASSUME things, right? You make an Ass-Hat…or something.
I interviewed Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson years ago when he came through Dallas to promote The Mummy Returns. He is GIGANTIC and surprisingly cute and cuddly. He hugged me. Like one of those pick-you-up-and-SQUEEZE-you hugs. THEN he kissed me on the cheek. He did the same thing to just about every other woman in the office and was equally as loveable with all the dudes. That is why I will always have a bit of a thing for The Rock and am excited about seeing San Andreas next week. I’ve seen the trailers and it’s just the kind of squirm-in-your-seat blockbuster that will get us all pumped about summer. Continue reading →
