See Little Boy early and free

We haven't talked much about Little Boy, mostly cause it looks pretty darn cheesy, but if the story of a child doing everything he can to end WWII so his father will come home sounds like the kind of heartwarming you nee...

See Kingsman: The Secret Service early and free

Kingsman: The Secret Service is kind of an odd duck. It's not quite clear where it's coming from, but it does have Matthew Vaugn as a director and Colin Firth in an action role. I mean, I think we all kind of want to see...

See The Wedding Ringer early and free

Some folks find Kevin Hart hilarious. I find him modestly amusing depending on the film, but if you find him hilarious then you should grab these tickets to The Wedding Ringer because then you can see him and laugh. Pret...

See American Sniper early and free

I thought American Sniper missed its target (sorry) a bit, but there is no doubt that the film is both powerful and well made. If you're into that kind of thing then you probably want some passes to see it... tonight. Ye...

See Inherent Vice early and free

Inherent Vice is a good movie. It's a good movie you're probably going to want to see twice just so you can get everything out of it. It's a bit complicated. Why not make one of those times absolutely free? Then see it a...

I didn't think anything was going to topple my best movie pick of Boyhood this year, but Selma comes dangerously close. Our review isn't up yet as it hasn't opened yet, but you will want to see this one early. Get these ...

See The Gambler early and free

Early buzz on The Gambler has some Oscar hopes tied to it, but the film didn't get the push and so the nominations didn't really come. That doesn't mean that the film will be bad, though. In fact it looks pretty damn ste...

It's Oscar season and while Benedict Cumberbatch's performance in The Imitation Game is actually losing steam as we roll into the end of the year it is still a site to behold, and behold it you shall. We have passes to a...

Washington Area Film Critics Association announces award winners photo
Washington Area Film Critics Association announces award winners
by Matthew Razak

The Washington Area Film Critics Association, of which I am a card carrying member, has delivered it's award winners once again this year. I voted of course and I think this year is one of the first where I've overwhelming agreed with the majority of wins. Boyhood grabbed best picture and best director, which is definitely what should. Even if you hated the movie for some random reason it was a triumph in film making and deserves it for that. As you can expect Richard Linklater winning best director was a given as well.

Aside from that J.K. Simmons as best support actor for Whiplash is a fantastic win as well as is Michael Keaton in Birdman, though David Oyelowo's performance in Selma was truly inspirational. I do disagree with Juliane Moore in Still Alice pull in best actress as I thought Rosamund Pike should have grabbed that for Gone Girl. Oh, well the awards can't always be right like I am. 

See the full winners and nominees below and check out all the nominees here.

See Horrible Bosses 2 early and free

I have not seen Horrible Bosses but according to this very website it is funny. When things are funny and make money they get sequels. Maybe they should. Maybe they shouldn't. Who knows. That's not a discussion for here....

Most of the time I give you a little snippet about the film here when introducing these screenings, but I am woefully uneducated about Beyond the Lights. Bad movie news person. That doesn't mean that you are, though, and mayb...

Nicole Kidman in a movie that looks a lot like Memento? I'm in. Before I Go to Sleep has all the makings of a film that blows your mind with an awesome premise or an unseen twist. Want to know what it is before everyone ...
