See The Goldfinch early and free

I'm not sure how good The Goldfinch will be but I can say that the movie is going to look fantastic. It's got Roger Deakins as a cinematographer and whatever that man shoots comes out real pretty. He's probably the best cinematographer work...

See Bluff City Law in theaters before its TV debut

Bluff City Law law is a TV show but that doesn't mean you can't see it on the big screen. We have passes to an early screening of the show before the television premier so you can sink your teeth into all the righteous lawyering you can han...

See Angel Has Fallen early and free

There are fans of the Has Fallen franchise. There must be because people keep going to the movies. I'm not sure why but I do know that you're out there. Since you're out there I also know that you want to see the third film in the seri...

See Blinded By the Light early and free

We are in a time of a new kind of musical. One where a famous musician or band's music is used to inspire us all as it inspires a character going through tough times. Yesterday is the most recent example of this and Blinded By the Ligh...

 
 
 photo

See The Kitchen early and free

The Kitchen  looks like an interesting one as we head through August and look for the that sleeper hit that summer always provides. A mafia crime thriller led by three of the hottest actresses working right now and based on a comi...

See The Art of Racing in the Rain early and free

The Art of Racing in the Rain might be the the ultimate "talking dog" movie. We're reaching an apex here with dog movies and this film is just so obvious in its dog movieness it's starting to feel like it might be the end of the trend....

See Annabelle Comes Home early and free

Will there very be an end to the Conjuring cinematic universe? Who knows? They keep pumping them out and people keep showing up to them. Plus, they're made for so little that it's nearly impossible for them to flop. Plus, plus, they're most...

 
 
 photo

See Shaft early and free

It would be lazy of me to just put the lyrics to the Shaft song in here and then the link, right? Fine, I'll say some words or whatever. They've made yet another Shaft movie, and I'm not even sure what the hell they're thinking with th...

 
 
 photo

See the Dead Don't Die early and free

Jim Jarmusch is a director that basically does whatever the hell he wants and turns it into magic. Evidently, the next thing he wanted to do was make a zombie movie with a bunch of famous people. So he did. And now it's something we can wat...

 
 
 photo

See Late Night early and free

We've already been shouting from the cinematic hilltops about how good Late Night is but we figured we'd give you a chance to see for yourself with some passes to a special screening of the film. The comedy, which stars Mindy Kaling an...

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'...

 
 
 photo

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 ...

 
 
 photo

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...

 
 
 photo

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...

 
 
 photo

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....

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...

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 ...
