See The Shallows early and free

Sharks are scary and Blake Lively being hunted down by one could be scary too. This is actually an interesting take on the whole shark attack genre, with the focus more on tension than actual attacks so it should be an interesting watch. Gr...

See the The Free State of Jones early and free

The Free State of Jones might be the perfect Gary Ross movie. The director is skilled at both underdog stories and stories based on actual events. Also, it has Matthew McConaughey laying on his thickest southern accent. You can check o...

See Central Intelligence early and free

Dwayne Johnso makes things good. He's just fun to watch so I have some hope for Central Intelligence being funny. It's clearly a bit hackneyed, but it could work. You can find out if it'll work with some passes for a screening tonight....

 
 
Angry Birds photo

See Angry Birds early and free

With Ratchet & Clank flopping hard at the box office we all must turn to Angry Birds to deliver us the children's video game movie we evidently wanted. Wait, no one wanted it? Well, what if you don't have to pay for it? If you...

 
 
Money Monster photo

See Money Monster early and free

Money Monster looks like a bit of Hollywood grandstanding about the economic downturn, but with a cast headlined by George Clooney and Julia Roberts and Jodie Foster directing it may actually be able to pull of its ridiculous story. Yo...

See PAPA: Hemingway in Cuba early and free

I'm not sure what the quality of PAPA: Hemingway in Cuba will be, but it is the first Hollywood film to be shot in Cuba since Obama loosened restrictions to it does get some historical credit. You can find out if it's actually worth re...

See The 5th Wave early and free

Ready for some low-grade January destruction movie stylings? Early every year we get a slew of these types of movies and sometimes they can be really fun. The 5th Wave could be fun. It definitely has some interesting slants to it, at l...

See Kung Fu Panda 3 early and free

Has the shine worn off the Kung Fu Panda franchise yet? It's a long time between these sequels and I've just gotten less and less enthused about the series, but both 1 and 2 were enjoyable so maybe three will work too. I was ...

See The Revenant early and free

Most people this year were probably excited for The Hateful 8 to land, but if you've been paying attention The Revenant is really the western you want to see. It's a bold, artistic landmark of a film according to us -- and we're a...

See Concussion early and free

I'm not sure why, but Will Smith's performance in Concussion is flying a bit under the radar. Yes, he's getting nominations, but no one is considering him a contender and they really should be. Don't believe me? Check out the film for ...

See Daddy's Home early and free

A little while ago Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferell made a fantastic comedy called The Other Guys. I think we were all looking forward to them teaming up again, but I don't know if Daddy's Home is the movie we were hoping for. Want to find out...

See Macbeth early and free

Shakespeare. Being smart. Acting. You can experience these things by going to see Macbeth for free. Who wouldn't want to be smart and see acting? It's just an easy decision to make, especially when Justin Kurzel is directing. Just head...

See The Night Before Early and free

As far as Christmas comedies go we haven't had a good one in a while, but that could change with The Night Before. It's got the casts and the director to become an instant classic... for adults. Sometimes you need a little cussing with your...

See Brooklyn early and free

Brooklyn is getting a lot of buzz and could be a film you hear about once awards season really takes off. What's that mean? It means you should see it for free and then you'll be able to sound all movie smart with your friends when the...

See The 33 early and free

Hollywood turns movies around pretty quick these days. It's only been a few years since the Chillean miners were trapped, but they've already got what appears to be a stirring film about their ordeal. You can be one of the first to see it w...

Update: We are out of passes for DC and Baltimore. However, there's plenty of space left in Norfolk so if you live there (anyone?) or are willing to travel then leave a comment below! We've got a big one here. I have passes for Spectre...

See The Peanuts early and free

The Peanuts Movie is either going to destroy an American classic or revitalize it. I'm not sure it really needed revitalizing as the holiday cartoons are still constantly watched every year, but maybe it does. The animation style leave...

See Burnt early and free

Bradley Cooper is having a  quite awards season this year so far, but maybe Burnt will be a sleeper hit. They're kind of half pushing his performance in it as something special so maybe it actually is. Then again maybe it's just a...

See Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse early and free

The Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse is going to go one of two ways. It will either be a hilarious send up of childhood adventure films or a mediocre raunchy comedy featuring zombies. At the moment I'm leaning towards the latter, ...

See the room early and free

Room looks like a stunningly weird movie. It's about a woman and her son who live in a room with no windows and no way out. Very strange, right? So strange you're intrigued and you're going to get some free tickets to check it out. I t...

See The Walk early and free

We may not have dug The Walk all that much when Hubert got a chance to see it at NYFF, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be seen on the big screen. The movie was made specifically for 3D IMAX so that the harrowing effect of walking ac...

If you haven't read The Martian go do that. Even if you don't like books or reading it will grab you, pull you in and then push you in every direction you have. Go now. Once you're back you should grab some passes to the movie because ...

Apologies for the late notice on this one, but if you're looking for something to do with the kids tomorrow how about a movie? We've got passes to Hotel Transylvania 2 that you can grab. The first one was not a bad Adam Sandler movie, ...

See The Intern early and free

It's been a while since I've seen a good random comedy and The Intern looks like it might be it. It's looks like a kind of weird rom-com film without the romance. It's got a great cast though and DeNiro can do the funny when he wants. ...

See The Transporter Refueld early and free

I can't say I'm overly excited from what we've seen so far from The Transporter Refueld, but I do enjoy a good car chase and the franchise has delivered quite a few of those. Jason Statham is out sadly, but maybe this new guy can pick up th...

See A Walk in the Woods early and free

Do you want to see Robert Redford and Nick Nolte walk around in the woods and argue? Of course you do. That's basically what two old men are best at and now they're doing it in a movie. Honestly, A Walk in the Woods, based on the book of th...

See Samba early and free

I'll be honest with you. I know very little about Samba. It's my fault for not paying attention. As such here is the plot description. Samba reunites The Intouchables’ acclaimed directing duo, Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, with ...

See Pixels early and free

I'm not quite sure I'm all that excited for Pixels. Aside from the nostalgia going there really isn't much driving me to the film. It looks like it could have been done far better by far funnier people, but maybe I'm totally wrong. You shou...

When we heard about the Vacation sequel we were very, very, very skeptical, but the trailer actually looks pretty funny. I'm not saying it's gong to be a classic, but you could laugh... and you could laugh for free. We've got passes to a sc...

The Overnight looks weird in that wonderfully hilarious way. Coming out of Sundance it got some great buzz for pushing boundaries while still being hilarious. Also, it has Taylor Schilling in a non-annoying way. That makes it a win rig...
