See it or Skip It: Movie Edition

Hello all! Hope everyone has started out 2016 with a bang! We all wanted cooler weather back in December to get into the Christmas season. Well Christmas has come and gone but now in January we have the cold weather! When it gets cold out I love going to the movies with my friends, seeing a movie then getting dinner or drinks after is my all-time favorite. If you go to the movies a lot like we do then check out Deal Flicks on ways to save at your local theater.

Let me give a see and skip it of some of the movies I've seen the last couple of days!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Ok, unless you have been living under a rock this has been the biggest movie of the year. We are talking Avatar-Titanic beating records big movie. I will admit I know next to nothing about Star Wars. I've seen all the films including the truly terrible Episode 1 (hey Jar Jar) but could I tell you the exact plot of all them? Not exactly. All you need to know is a simple...good vs. evil. Good (Jedi) vs. Siths (Darth Vader,etc..) bad.  I went with my whole family to see this on Christmas Day and we were all pleasantly surprised, even if you are not a huge fan or don't know tons about the franchise, you will enjoy this movie! Oh and all my Girls fans, Adam Driver is in this so reason enough to check it out.

Y'all...I flat out loved this movie. Tina Fey and my spirit animal Amy Poehler are perfect in this film about two sister, one is perfect and the other not so much. When they return to their childhood home and discover it has been sold they decide to throw one final party to commemorate their time in the house. It is the party to end all parties with some sweet, racy and dramatic scenes in between. Wonderfully written and fantastic casting make this film a must-see, I've actually seen it twice!

Daddy's Home

I really wasn't expecting too much from this one, it looked cute but just ok. Will Ferrell plays the straight laced stepdad and Mark Wahlberg is the cool, edgy dad who comes back into the kids lives seemingly to get his ex-wife and family back. The movie was actually pretty funny and would make a great date night and a film pretty much everyone would enjoy. There is also a pretty good cameo at the end!


Watch the trailer here!


Jennifer Lawrence is back in Oscar form in this empowering film based on the woman who created the the "Miracle Mop". Even with her house filled with crazy family members she rises to the top and transforms into the matriarch she was always destined to become. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and would not be shocked if J.Law picks up her second Best Actress Oscar this year. The film also reunites her and Bradley Cooper on screen as well as director David O' Russell from Silver Linings Playbook.

And one I can't wait to see...
The Revenant

The Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy venture looks to be one of the biggest of the upcoming awards season. I love Tom Hardy and think he is one of the most talented actors out there and will this finally be the year Leo snags his much anticipated Oscar win? This one hits theaters everywhere Friday, January 8th!

Look at the trailer here!

Hope you enjoyed those recaps! Tell me your thoughts on these movies and any that you have loved recently! We are getting ready for awards season and I want to check out all the nominees this year!

Let's all go to the movies!
