FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Spies in Disguise” in Dallas, Austin, Houston & San Antonio
Here’s a movie for the whole family that’s opening on Christmas Day. It’s Spies in Disguise from Blue Sky (the makers of Ice Age, Ferdinand and Rio), starring Will Smith and Tom Holland. Apparently Smith’s super-spy is turned into a pigeon while working with Holland’s nerdy technology officer and they have to work together to save the world. Well, the kids will love it and I have passes to see Spies in Disguise Continue reading →
FREE MOVIE PASSES: See the New “Aladdin” EARLY & FOR FREE
When the first images of the new, live-action Aladdin were released in December, social media took one deep breath, then collectively shat itself. Twitter in particular went of the rails with gleeful vivisections of Will Smith’s “Genie,” comparing unkindly him to a post-diet Sinbad. You can read bits of that feeding-frenzy HERE, but the new Aladdin is actually getting good reviews. Sorry to rain on anyone’s “Everything Sucks” parade, but Guy Ritchie’s version of the Disney classic is being called “lavish,” “enjoyable,” and one guy even used the word “amazing.” You can read those reviews HERE if you don’t believe me, or you could just go see the new Aladdin EARLY and FOR FREE! Click HERE if you’d like passes to that free screening, then watch the trailer below. I even included a newly released clip of Will Smith singing “Prince Ali” to help you decide.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Collateral Beauty” EARLY and FOR FREE
Will Smith is pretty excited about his co-stars in Collateral Beauty. He recently said, “If we are all judged by the company we keep … then I want this cast with me for life!” His excitement is understandable, with a line-up that includes Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet, Edward Norton and Keira Knightley. That’s two Oscar winners and three Oscar nominees, if you’re counting AND you include Will Smith. He plays an advertising executive who suffers a tremendous loss, then writes letters to Love, Time and Death as a way to cope. Imagine his surprise when they write back! So, would you like to see Collateral Beauty EARLY and FOR FREE? Click HERE to get your passes if so, then watch the trailer below. Oh yeah…this one is going to make me cry, too.
PODCAST: “Suicide Squad” Movie Review with Rebekah Black & Tim Vasquez
I got to see Suicide Squad with Rebekah Black and guest-critic, Tim Vasquez last night. Sooo, was it any good? Did it live up to that phenomenal trailer? Was Jared Leto a decent Joker? More importantly, did it wash the taste of the Godawful Batman v Superman out of our mouths? Listen to the podcast to find out, and while you’re here, don’t forget to snag some free movie passes!
FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Suicide Squad” ON ME!
We’re all still shaking our heads over the Batman v Superman disappointment we were hit with back in March. Despite that, I can’t help but get a little excited about Suicide Squad. I’m like that duck at the pond who keeps coming back to you, even when you’re just throwing rocks at it.
It’s hard to NOT get jazzed about Suicide Squad when you see Margot Robbie strutting around as Harley Quinn or you hear the stories about Jared Leto scaring co-stars as the Joker. He supposedly NEVER got out of character and even sent creepy things to them in the mail, like dead animals and used condoms. Scott Eastwood said, at one point, he wanted to call the cops on Leto. Plus, I want to see Ben Affleck play Batman again. He wasn’t my favorite part of Batman v Superman (that goes to Gal Gadot) but he came a close second.
We won’t care that it sucks if we see it for FREE, right? That’s why I’m giving away free passes! If you’d like to see Suicide Squad early and for free, just click HERE, then watch the trailer again. Omigod, QUEEN!!!
