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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

See Show Dogs early and free

Does your family like cute dogs and possibly comedy? Then we've got the deal for you. Four tickets to the movie Show Dogs. If you've been looking for a movie with dogs in it, here it is. It could be fun for the kids. To grab the tickets jus...

See Life of the Party early and free

You know, every Melissa McCarthy movie just looks more derivative than the next. I use to look forward to her movies, but it just seems now that she's making the same thing over and over or making someone else's same thing over and over. It...

 
 
 photo

See I Feel Pretty Early and free

I Feel Pretty is the latest comedy from Amy Schumer, who you either find funny or not funny. I find her pretty funny for the most part, and if you agree with that than you'll probably want to grab some tickets for a screening to the mo...

See You Were Never Really Here early and free

Did you read our review for You Were Never Really Here and think, "Man, I want to see that movie." Well, you're in luck. We've got some passes to the film that can let you see it. It's full of good acting and death via hammer, which ar...

 
 
 photo

See Truth or Dare early and free

Blumhouse is probably the best horror studio working so when they release a new horror film I'm interested. I suppose it's a little arogant to put the studio's name in the official title as they've done with Blumhouse's Truth or Dare, ...

 
 
 photo

See The Miracle Season early and free

Sports movies. They make us feel good. That should probably happen with The Miracle Season, in which a volleyball team comes together after a tragedy to win the big championship game (or maybe not, I'm just assuming that's how it ends). Wan...

 
 
 photo

See Blockers early and free

We saw Blockers at SXSW, and came away surprisingly happy with it. Even John Cena anally chugging beer turned out kind of funny. Who knew? But don't take our word for it. You can grab some passes right now to see an early screening of ...

 
 
 photo

See Ready Player One early and free

I came away from Ready Player One a bit letdown by the whole thing. The references didn't feel right, and the film's plot was a bit slapdash. However, according to the ol' Rotten Tomatoes, I was in the minority, so maybe you shoul...

 
 
 photo

See Midnight Sun early and free

The plot description for Midnight Sun has the word tear-jerker in it, so I think you know what you're getting here. A young adult romance full of challenges and possible death, its in line with a spate of these kinds of films that have...

 
 
 photo

See Love, Simon early and free

A bit of a late notice on this one, but our SXSW coverage has been taking up all our time. You can see Love, Simon tonight! That's before anyone else. Aren't you just the most special. Someone should write a letter to you and end it "L...

See The Strangers: Prey at Night early and free

I'm a little bit excited for The Strangers: Prey at Night. It's such a weird and great horror concept, and I thought the first one worked pretty well. I'm hoping this one pulls off the same feeling. If you're looking forward to it as well t...

 
 
 photo

See Game Night early and free

Black Panther is now behind us so it's time for some other movies to open up, and game night is another movie! Huzzah! Comedy. Laughs. Other things you might enjoy. Actually game nights looks better than it should be so how about scoop...

See Annihilation early and free

What do you do when you have a high concept science fiction movie from the man who directed the best high concept science fiction film of the past decade, Ex Machina? You shove it into a corner and sell off the overseas distribution rights ...

 
 
 photo

See Early Man early and free

February likes to pump out kids movies because that helps the box office survive, and Early Man is one of those movies. But it's also from Aardman Animation so it's actually kind of exciting. Their work isn't always the best, but it's alway...

See 12 Strong early and free

Ready to get all patriotic? 12 Strong tells the true story of the first US troops to go into Afghanistan after 9/11. The story was declassified a couple years back and now it's on the big screen with a Hemsworth in it. I can't say I'm ...

 
 
 photo

See The Commuter early and free

This is it folks. The last thriller from Liam Neeson. If you want to see an older man go through some sort of action related thrills then you're just going to have to do it without him. Thankfully, we can get you in for a nice free goodbye....

See Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle early and free

I'm actually quite looking for to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Not really because I'm a big fan whatever franchise they're trying to make out of it, but because I like the rock doing dumb movies. He's just good at it and hopefully he's g...

 
 
 photo

See the Shape of Water early and free

Guillermo del Toro was all set to make Pacific Rim 2, but then he realized that a better course of action would be to make a different kind of monster movie. A love story full of his trademark style, horror, and atmosphere. We should all be...

See The Room at a special screening

Are you dying to see The Disaster artist, but feel like you need a refresher of The Room, the best worst movie ever made that the film is based on? I mean you could rent it or you could see it in all its cinematic glory by snagging some fre...

 
 
 photo

See Mudbound early and free

Ready for Oscar season to kick into high gear? Mudbound has a ton of buzz around it, and may be the movie that finally pushes Netflix's films into the Academy award winning category. They've been desperate to snag one since Beast of No Nati...

See Kingsman: The Golden Circle early and free

I couldn't be more hyped for more Kingsman, which is odd because I was incredibly unhyped for the first one until I saw it. Hopefully they're able to carry on the same tongue-in-cheek spy film that the first was without jumping the shark. I...

See IT early and free

It's been a few weeks of suck for movie going audiences, and the box office has reflected that as no one has gone to theaters. But IT is here to save us all. You cane experience before anyone else and tell all your friends if it is act...

 
 
 photo

See Wind River early and free

I'll admit I have next to no knowledge about Wind River. It just hasn't been on my radar, but that doesn't mean it isn't on your radar. It was definitely on some of our staff's radar at the beginning of the year. If it is I've got good news...

 
 
 photo

See The Dark Tower Early and free

I am so incredibly worried about The Dark Tower. The series of Stephen King books that the film is based on is some of my favorite writing, but this movie doesn't really look much like them. It's got a good cast, but the studio is dumping i...

See Okja early and free

Bong Joon Ho's Okja is coming to Netflix soon, but if you'd prefer to see the movie in theaters we've got the chance. It's one of those movies that does look great on the big screen, and seeing it with an audience should be a good time...

 
 
Wonder Woman photo

See Wonder Woman early and free

Early buzz on Wonder Woman is that its the best DC has put out. That might not be saying much considering the low quality of their films so far (aside from Batman), but evidently its the best because it is actually good. We can't say t...

 
 
 photo

See Captain Underpants early and free

My son is too young to be a Captain Underpants fan, but I hear he's big with the kiddos so I'm sure there are plenty of parents out there who would love to take their kids to an early screening this weekend. Thankfully we've got the pa...

 
 
Aliens photo

See Alien: Covenant early and free

Ridley Scott is bringing the Xenomorphs back to where they should be. After the weirdness that was Prometheus it looks like the franchise will be returning to its horror roots. Or at least a rickety spaceship with people dying in it. Want t...

 
 
Snatched photo

See Snatched early and free

Looking for some comedy involving kidnapping and Goldie Hawn? Have we got just the movie for you. Snatched is opening soon, but we've got passes to see it early. I can't say I'm terribly excited for this one, but it is nice to see Hawn...

See Sully early and free

Tom Hanks in a based-on-actual-events movie? Yea, I'm there. Putting him into the role of hero pilot Captain “Sully” Sullenberger who landed a damn airplane in the middle of the Hudson river? I'm double there. Having it dir...
