I was on Good Morning Texas yesterday to go over some of the big films to watch for this month. I also gave my reviews of films like The Many Saints of Newark, Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage and the new James Bond film No Time to Die. Click HERE to watch the segment and remember to check the Julie Says So MOVIE MINUTE podcast for more reviews.
We’re taking the Julie Says So MOVIE MINUTE quite literally this week by giving you our shortest episode yet.

I’d watch Woody Harrelson play just about anything and the idea of him as Admiral Chester Nimitz during WWII sounds almost perfect. He stars with Patrick Wilson, Ed Skrein and Luke Evans in Midway, which centers on that battle and how it was a turning point in the Pacific. So, who wants to see Midway EARLY and FOR FREE?

There has been an awful lot of complaining about Hollywood’s lack of fresh material lately. Why are they making sequels to everything??? Yes, it’s been a repeated gripe for years, but I bet you won’t hear anyone fussing about Zombieland: Double Tap. So, want to see it EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
Oh, people always have to gripe about something, and now they’re mad at Venom.
Evidently, the new Marvel flick, starring Tom Hardy as Spider Man’s rival, is rated PG-13 in the United States. That’s just too kid-friendly for long-term fans of the character, who wanted something much darker for this new incarnation. Hardy doesn’t seem to mind though. In fact, he got most of his direction from his 10-year-old son, who knew far more about Venom than he did. You can read more about that HERE, or would you rather just see Venom EARLY and FOR FREE? Click HERE to grab your passes if so, then watch the trailer below. And HOLY COW Venom looks SCARY to me! Even with that PG-13 rating!
I could write a 3-part essay about Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, explaining why you REALLY want to see this movie. I could tell you about the cast, which includes Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, and Peter Dinklage OR how it’s written and directed by Martin McDonagh, who made those other two movies you loved (Seven Psychopaths and In Bruges). I could talk all day about it’s incredible performances and Oscar chances, but the thing that will REALLY make you want to see Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri is it’s trailer. I posted that below so watch it, then grab passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE Continue reading →
I joined Jane McGarry and Alanna Sarabia today on Good Morning Texas to discuss the big November movies everyone should watch for. Since it’s Halloween, they also asked me to show up in costume and talk about my favorite SCARY movies. I learned a number of things from the costume I wore today (see above), namely that Kylo Ren is forever shutting his skirts in car doors and struggling to keep them out of toilets. Click HERE to watch the segment, and remember to check the Julie Says So FREE MOVIE PASSES page to see what I’m giving away next. I’m also posting the Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri trailer below, since we discussed it today. Be warned that it is PACKED with really REALLY foul language, which is probably why I love it so. Continue reading →
Those of us who’ve read Jeannette Walls’ memoir The Glass Castle can tell you how beautiful, poetic and enraging it can be, all at the same time. The book tells of Walls’ turbulent upbringing, which was in constant turmoil due her to parents’ persistent issues. Woody Harrelson plays Walls’ alcoholic father and Naomi Watts portrays her depressive mom, while Brie Larson is Jeannette Walls as an adult. That’s a handful of my favorite actors so hopefully this big-screen version will live up to the book. Wanna see it EARLY & FOR FREE? Continue reading →
If you think you don’t want to see War for the Planet of the Apes, you should probably do what I’m doing with my daughters this weekend; watch the first two movies again.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) were both lauded by critics (OK, Dawn way more so than Rise) and featured excellent performances by Andy Serkis. Those films set up a finale that, believe it or not, has already become one of the highest rated films of the summer. Even better, you get to see War for the Planet of the Apes EARLY and FOR FREE!

Remember when you were seventeen and everything kind of sucked? Your parents would go on and on about how you were living the “best years of your life,” and you just wanted them to end as soon as possible? Or was that just me? Maybe that’s why I watch the trailer for The Edge of Seventeen and feel like I have lived in this girl’s acned, uncomfortable skin.
Hailee Steinfeld plays Nadine, whose life falls apart when her best-friend starts dating her older brother. She’s left alone and adrift, without her best-friend to help her navigate the increasingly awkward waters of young adulthood. Nadine’s sounding-board is her teacher, Mr. Bruner. He’s played by Woody Harrelson, so you know poor Nadine is screwed. Actually, anyone who has seen this movie says their scenes together are fantastic.
So, want to see The Edge of Seventeen EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
