This week, on the Julie Says So MOVIE MINUTE podcast, we talk about the new Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer (projected release date is December 17th…we were so busy discussing the Tom Holland/Zendaya rumors that we forgot to say) and share some of our favorite streaming shows. We also review Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and the latest from Jordan Peele, Candyman. Keep checking back for updates on the new Matrix 4 trailer and take a minute to watch that new Spider-Man trailer below (here’s a link about the relationship rumors, in case you are ALSO obsessed).Continue reading →
Imagine being the first Marvel film released AFTER Avengers: Endgame.
It almost isn’t fair, is it? Following on the heels of a film that brought all of our favorite superheros together (and even took some away) would be an enormous challenge for any picture, but especially one that had such deep connections to one of the departed (I’m just now realizing how hard it will be to write this review without any A) Spider-Man: Far From Home or B) Avengers: Endgame spoilers).

I wonder if Tom Holland felt weird when Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse became a monstrous hit. Did he watch it win the Oscar and grumble, “But I’m the real Spider-Man,” or is that just something I would do? Well, it doesn’t really matter because Spider-Man: Far From Home will hit theaters July 2nd and briefly make everyone forget about Miles Morales. It’s already projected to make $150 million opening weekend, so maybe you should skip the lines and see it EARLY and FOR FREE. Continue reading →
There haven’t been many options for kids in theaters lately, but that changes in a big way with Smallfoot! Starring Channing Tatum, Zendaya, James Corden and LeBron James, it tells the story of a Yeti who finds a terrifying small-footed creature, then sets out to prove it’s existence to his unbelieving village. So, who wants to see Smallfoot EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
There are a ton of movies out now, but it’s been a while since a just-for-kids kind of flick has hit theaters. The end of September brings two big ones our way though, and one smaller picture that kids will love, even if they haven’t heard of it yet.
The first is one that’s opening this weekend (9/21), The House With a Clock in Its Walls.

I had several snarky thoughts when I first saw the trailer for The Greatest Showman.
-I think I preferred this movie when it was called Moulin Rouge.
-Isn’t Hugh Jackman a little old to be playing Michelle Williams’ husband?
-Really??? Another slow-motion shot of a hot-chick dangling from the ceiling???
You get the point.
See, I have to sit through a ton of movies and I’m afraid that, after a while, many of them start to look the same.
I even warned my daughters to “keep your expectations low” when we sat down to watch The Greatest Showman, and then prepared myself to be sufficiently underwhelmed.
Man…was I wrong. Continue reading →
Before we discuss taking your kids to see Spider-Man: Homecoming, we should probably address how YOU feel about it. Odds are, you’re still confused about the need for a reboot (especially since they JUST rebooted it with Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker) and, as a result, you’re apathetic about the whole thing.
Let me clue you in to a few solid reasons for you to NOT be apathetic about Spider-Man: Homecoming. Continue reading →
If you aren’t excited about Spider-Man: Homecoming, it’s probably because you didn’t see his triumphant return in Captain America: Civil War. Yes, I also rolled my eyes at the thought of it, but my Spidey-apathy was abated when young Tom Holland donned that stretchy suit. Good Lord, that boy is adorable. If you missed it, click HERE to see a compilation of his Captain America: Civil War scenes. Or don’t. I mean, then you’ll just want to SEE Spider-Man:Homecoming and I simply don’t have enough free passes for EVERYONE. Continue reading →
