I had reviews for Thor: Love and Thunder, Minions: Rise of Gru and Where the Crawdads Sing, plus a preview of the most anticipated film of the year, Nope. Click HERE to watch the segment, then watch the latest trailer for Nope below!

RAPID REVIEW- “Thor: Love and Thunder” Suffers from Its Own Director
Thor: Love and Thunder finds the Norse god at a major crossroads in his life. Without a battle to fight or love to follow, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is listless and lost. His ex-girlfriend, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) is inexplicably drawn to New Asgard during her own personal struggle and together they must battle a new threat who plans to murder all of the Gods.
Thor: Love and Thunder has two main issues working against it.Continue reading →
Julie Says So: What’s Streaming NOW (for 4/23)
Don’t you miss hanging out with your squad?
Getting dressed up, meeting your friends and then having a massive fight in the middle of some overpriced restaurant. Maybe even flipping some tables?
If that’s your kind of fun, you’ll be thrilled to know that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is BACK. Sharpen your nails for added drama because Garcelle Beauvais has been added to the cast. You can watch it on Bravo (and catch up with Episode 1 below). Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Bad Times at the El Royale” EARLY & FOR FREE
I’ve watched the trailer for Bad Times at the El Royale a handful of times now and I still can’t figure out what’s going on. It’s hard to worry about a cast that’s THIS GOOD, though. You’ve got Jeff Bridges, Jon Hamm, Nick Offerman and Chris Hemsworth, who’s apparently forgotten how to button a shirt (not complaining, just noting). Dakota Johnson’s in the mix too and, as I’ve stated a few times already, she’s vastly underrated as an actress. Bad Times at the El Royale is also from Writer/Director Drew Goddard, who’s responsible for mind-benders like Cabin in the Woods, Cloverfield and several episodes of Lost. I think this is the type of movie that you learn as little as possible about before seeing it. Even better, how would you like to see it EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “12 Strong” EARLY & FOR FREE
If you watched the Golden Globes recently, you probably saw countless trailers for the new movie, 12 Strong. I know many of us (me included) first thought, “Oooo, LOOK! A Chris Hemsworth movie that isn’t Thor,” but there are several, much better reasons to see 12 Strong. It’s based on Doug Stanton’s book Horse Soldiers, which tells the true story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11. There, they worked with an Afghan warlord, and against unspeakable odds, to take down the Taliban. 12 Strong stars Michael Shannon, Rob Riggle, and Michael Peña along with Chris Hemsworth, as well as Elsa Pataky, who is married to Hemsworth in real life. Rob Riggle plays Colonel Max Bowers, the former battalion commander of the 5th Special Forces Group. Riggle is a Marine and actually served under the real Colonel Bowers. Pretty cool, right? Almost as cool as the passes I have to see 12 Strong EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →
MOVIE REVIEW: Life’s too Hard to NOT See “Thor: Ragnarok”
I’ll talk about Thor: Ragnarok in a moment but first I’d like to address the big picture…
LIFE is hard.
If you need proof, just look around you. Everyone I know is going through something awful right now. I have friends who are fighting cancer, and friends who are caring for parents who are fighting cancer. I have friends who have lost their jobs, and friends who are trapped in jobs that they HATE. I have friends who worry desperately for their children, and who can’t turn the TV on at night because the bad news they see freaks them out even more.
In other words, everything seems to suck right now, for just about everyone.
Don’t we all deserve something GOOD? Don’t we deserve a moment to escape and feel light, or powerful, or maybe to just laugh our asses off?
Now, I’m ready to talk about Thor: Ragnarok. Continue reading →
FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Thor: Ragnorak” EARLY & FOR FREE
My daughters and I have been pumped about Thor: Ragnorak for AGES. You know what has us the most excited though? Not the fact that Mark Ruffalo shows up as The Hulk, or that Tom Hiddleston is back as Loki. Nor were we jazzed that Cate Blanchett plays Hela the Goddess of Death or that Benedict Cumberbatch makes an appearance as Dr. Strange. No, the thing that has us excitedly tittering over Thor: Ragnorak is the fact that Chris Hemsworth cut his hair. And it looks GOOD. Sorry, not my proudest moment but it’s true. If Hemsworth’s new ‘do isn’t enough to get you excited about Thor: Ragnorak as well, maybe you haven’t heard that it’s getting rave reviews, or that I’ve got passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE.
