The latest from Laika Studios (Coraline, Kubo and the Two Strings) takes us to the Pacific Northwest, where the furry but well-spoken “Mr. Link” (Zack Galifianakis) has grown tired of living in the wilderness alone. He enlists the help of an explorer, “Sir Lionel Frost” (Hugh Jackman) to help find his long-lost family, which starts them on a life-changing adventure. Missing Link doesn’t open in theaters until April 12th, but I’ve got passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →
My kids are bigger cynics than I am, when it comes to movies.
They see almost as many films as I do and have had their hearts broken by more than one (read Emma’s review of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children HERE for a taste of that). The girls know that it’s often best to keep your expectations low, which might be why I’m struggling to get them excited about A Wrinkle in Time. They enjoyed the book by Madeleine L’Engle, but know how hard it is for movies to live up to the originals. They’re too young to appreciate Ava DuVernay and how cool it is that she’s directing this, or to understand why I’m excited to see Mindy Kaling on the big screen. In fact, the only person my kids are pumped about seeing in A Wrinkle in Time is Oprah Winfrey, but it might be because of her I Love Bread vine.
It doesn’t really matter because I’m making them see A Wrinkle in Time with me anyhow and YOU CAN TOO, thanks to this stack of FREE MOVIE PASSES I just got! Continue reading →

Like that line? Feel free to use it.
The first Lego Movie ended up in my Top 10 Favorite Films of 2014, so now I’m trying to reel in my expectations for The Lego Batman Movie. My kids, on the other hand, are full-blown PUMPED about it.
So, who wants to see The Lego Batman Movie EARLY & FOR FREE? Continue reading →
