See Godzilla: King of the Monsters early and free

I would not have guessed that as the MCU comes to a close the cinematic universe I am most excited to dive into would be the Godzilla/King Kong one, but here we are. After years of trying to make Godzilla work as a Western blockbuster they'...

See Booksmart early and free

We got to check out Booksmart hella early at SXSW and pretty much loved it. The film is smart and interesting and basically a new take on Superbad. Can't get much more of a recommendation than that, but if you don't trust us for some r...

 
 
 photo

See The Hustle early and free

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is comedy royalty. Still one of the funniest movies you can ever watch, a remake/reboot is a risky ask. The Hustle is going for it, and I'm hoping it can live up to its predecessor. It's a bit of a strange ...

See the Curse of La Llorona early and free

Cheap and quick horror is on the rise for studios as Blumhouse is paving a way to be profitable without even trying, and New Line is right behind them with their slew of Conjuring spin-offs. The Curse of La Llorona isn't one of th...

See The Long Shot early and free

Have you been in the mood for an actually good romantic comedy? Well, since we got to check out Long Shot at SXSW I can indeed tell you that it's actually good. It's both surprisingly touching and thoughtful. You don't have to take our...

See Breakthrough early and free

Breakthrough is a movie I hadn't heard of until we got these tickets to give away. From what I can tell from the poster I glanced at it involves breaking through some ice. It's got a decent cast and a whole bunch of faith-inducing...

 
 
 photo

See Pet Sematary early and free

I think, instead of diving deep into the remake of Pet Semetary here, I'll just talk about how damn creepy the original is and all thanks to Miko Hughes is as a child actor. I don't even remember that many details about the original, b...

 
 
 photo

See Best of Enemies early and free

Not going to lie on this one, I haven't even watched the trailer for Best of Enemies. I know, bad film writer person, but sometimes things slide past me and I'm listening to Weezer right now and don't want to pause it so... here we are. Hon...

 
 
 photo

See Shazam! early and free

Want to see Shazam! before anyone... no, wait. They did that super early screening thing. Plus, our review is already up. Still, not that many people saw it then so do you want to see Shazam! before most other people and for free?...

 
 
 photo

See Fighting With My Family early and free

We all love Dwayne Johnson. Even the people who pretend not to like Dwayne Johnson secretly have shrines constructed to him in their houses. The world loves him. This is just a scientific fact. He's in Fighting With My Family, a movie based...

 
 
 photo

See Everybody Knows early and free

Director Asghar Farhadi is really good. Both A Separation and The Salesman are some of the best films you can see so we're pretty sure that Everybody Knows will be really good too. I mean look at the stars! We like for you to...

 
 
 photo

See Miss Bala early and free

I'm not even going to pretend to be all that interest in Miss Bala, an American remake of a fantastic foreign film. There's just nothing in it that looks all the interesting to me. It seems to take the dramatic original and turn it into far...

 
 
 photo

See The Kid Who Would Be King early and free

The King Who Would Be King marks the return of Joe Cornish to the director's chair for the first time since Attack the Block, and it also marks the return of those kinds of movies where kids go on unsupervised adventures to save the wo...

 
 
 photo

See The Upside early and free

Ready to feel good in the new year? How about a little bit of those comedies where two people with different backgrounds learn important life lessons by bonding with each other? Sure, The Upside looks about as original as an over-used ...

 
 
 photo

See Second Act early and free

Sometimes good movies come out, and sometimes Second Act comes out.  Look, I haven't seen the movie yet so it could be a big, wonderful surprise that just lights up the comedy world this holiday season, but it sure doesn't look li...

 
 
 photo

See Vice early and free

Vice is definitely one of the best movies of the year. It's both darkly comical (in that you can only laugh at how depressing it is), and wonderfully made. Christian Bale's Dick Cheney has to be seen to be believed, and the r...

 
 
 photo

See Once Upon a Deadpool early and free

Are you as curious as I am about what the hell a PG-13 Deadpool would be like? Or maybe you're just a super big fan of Fred Savage and The Princess Bride? Or maybe you want to see the new Once Upon a Deadpool, but you hate giving to chariti...

 
 
 photo

See Mary Queen of Scots early and free

The film world is abuzz with Margot Robbie's turn as Queen Elizabeth in Mary Queen of Scots, and now you can be too before anyone else. We're giving away passes to see the film and all you need to do is click a link. If you're down with his...

 
 
 photo

See Creed II early and free

I'm not sure what to think about Creed II. Is it going to be the dramatic and stunningly good drama that Creed was or are we going full Rocky III here and just turning the franchise into boxing ridiculousness. It's hard to tell, a...

 
 
 photo

See Overlord early and free

Overlord looks schlocky, gruesome, terrible and wonderful. I'm guessing for a sleeper hit on this one with probably some sort of twist on the Nazi/Zombie sub-genre you weren't expecting. Then again maybe not. Maybe it will just be a straigh...

 
 
 photo

See Widows early and free

Widows looks like something we don't get all that often: a clever and original crime film, replete with strong performances and an actually compelling story. It's definitely caught my attention after it stormed out of festivals with great r...

 
 
 photo

See Boy Erased early and free

Boy Erased looks like it's going to have a lot of people talking when it lands given both its subject matter and quality. Now you'll have the chance to talk about it first. We've got passes for an early screening of the film that you c...

 
 
 photo

See the Girl in the Spider's Web early and free

I'm not so sure about The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo series rebooting itself with a story not based on the original trilogy, but on the other hand, Claire Foy is awesome so it's hard to know what we're going to get from The Girl in the...

See Hunter Killer for free in DC

Gerard Butler has found himself in a hot spot again, after saving the world from climate change he's got a new job on board a submarine that uncovers a secret Russian coup that could send the world tumbling into World War III in Lionsgate's...

 
 
 photo

See Beautiful Boy early and free

We've got a last minute screening for you so you can cry for two hours tonight! OK, that doesn't sound like that much fun, but Beautiful Boy looks like the prolific tear-jerker of the holiday season, and it's good to have a nice cry ev...

 
 
 photo

See Halloween early and free

Halloween is back... in pog form! No, OK, it's just back in classic form. With the return of Jamie Lee Curtis and functioning as a direct sequel to the first movie the newest edition of Halloween actually looks scary as hell....

 
 
 photo

See First Man early and free

Oscar season is quickly approaching and one of the first big contenders to hit screens (after A Star is Born) will be First Man. Full of the kind of true American story that makes your health swell with pride, and most likely stunning perfo...

 
 
 photo

See The Sisters Brothers early and free

I am not so sure what to make of The Sisters Brothers. I know I love westerns, and I like some comedy in them, but I can't tell if this one is going to work or not. It just seems weird. That actually makes me want to see it even more, thoug...

 
 
 photo

See Life Itself early and free

We have a super last minute screening that you can get passes for is you're free tonight. Life Itself looks like one of those movies that will touch every emotional bone in your body and then make them cry. I'm not sure if it is, but i...

 
 
 photo

See The House with a Clock in Its Walls early and free

As we roll into Halloween it's time for things to get scary. But what about the kids! Think of the children! How will they enjoy the holiday if they can't see bad horror movies? Never fear, adaptation is here! The House with a Clock in Its ...

 
 
 photo

See The Nun early and free

This whole Conjuring universe is getting a little out of control, but I suppose if they keep on making money why not keep on making them. They're also all relatively good in quality (relative to the vast majority of bad horror films ou...

 
 
 photo

See God Bless the Broken Road early and free

God Bless the Broken Road is one of those inspirational films about family and faith and stuff. That's not really my bag, man, but maybe it's yours. If it is then I think you'll probably enjoy it since most of the films in this genre f...

 
 
 photo

See The Happytime Murders early and free

No sesame. All Street. With that one tagline, I had to see The Happytime Murders. Do I think it will be good? I'm not sure. It looks like a lot of the comedy is just based off of puppets doing adult things, and that's kind of tired. But tha...

 
 
 photo

See Crazy Rich Asians early and free

Crazy Rich Asians wasn't really on my radar at all, but after seeing the trailer a few weeks ago and I started seeing the damn book or its follow up all over the place. Now I'm concerned I've missed out on some cultural phenomenon. I m...

 
 
 photo

See The Equalizer 2 early and free

The Equalizer was a bit of fun with Denzel Washington basically doing his best Liam Neeson so hopefully, the sequel won't be a drop off in quality the same way Taken 2 was. At least we're getting the same creative team back. Want to kn...

 
 
 photo

See Sorry to Bother You early and free

Sorry to Bother You is one of our most anticipated movies of the summer, and for good reason. It just looks amazing and interesting and weird. It's the kind of movie you go see when you're tired of action films. If you're there then we've g...

 
 
 photo

See The First Purge early and free

From some humble beginnings The Purge has turned into one of bolder political commentaries in recent years. It's kind of funny to think that a high concept home invasion film has spurred this much success, but now we'll get to learn where i...

 
 
 photo

See Hotel Artemis early and free

Sometimes you just want some clever low budget action, and that's exactly what Hotel Artemis looks like. Awash with style and plenty of big names, the movie looks like it leans more towards John Wick than Avengers, which is kind of nic...

 
 
 photo

See Action Park early and free

Have you been missing the Jackass guys? I mean YouTube is full of idiots doing stupid things, but the Jackass guys did stupid things well not just stupid. Thankfully, they're back in a movie with a plot. I'm not entirely sure abou...

 
 
 photo

See Upgrade early and free

Time for some low budget action, folks. Upgrade looks like some stupid fun, and Blumhouse does know how to deliver that. It's like if Iron Man's armor took over for a bit and was kind of a dick. We'll see how it turns out, but I'm hopi...
