Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

A story of a country music star that leaves his high school sweetheart at the altar to go pursue his quickly gained celebrity status. Eight years later he discovered a high school friend passed away and headed home for the funeral only to run into her and discover what he has missed over the last eight years – an emotional struggle of everything he walked away from and how to deal with a new life presented upon him. The acting was great and the plot perfect. Not normally a film i would randomly choose but while at Tinseltown in Colorado Springs, the timing was convenient for the small window of movie-going and able to use as a free film for my $9.95 / month Movie Pass it was a go. It was a emotional, tear-jerking, chick-flick that made a grown man cry – heart felt and warming, touching to the soul of any parent, definitely a film with lots of emotional moments. Outside of the country music, which even though it was about a famous country singer, was minimal and not obtrusive, so a country-music disliking soul such as myself was not bothered. It was a remarkably well done movie. Rating: 4 stars out of 5 (Viewed by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley on 1/29/18 with Movie Pass)

Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

A enormous and fancy high capacity stadium-like seating theater complex with reclining and assigned seats. Always an enjoyable experience and one of my favorite theaters to visit. Concessions maze is awkward and an all out failure – that would be the worst part of the theater. Luckily for the healthier junk-food minded, there is a cafe where you can get food that takes a little longer to make, your Starbucks addiction, ice cream on a cone, milkshakes, and what-not. There is also a bar, but unfortunately it’s part of the concession-maze screw-up (wasn’t always like that). The theater possesses a Hollywood charm, great rich extravagant decor and film, you really are placed into movie-land with this experience. The staff is friendly and go out of their way to help you. Free refills on large popcorns and drinks, and with the rewards program, not to hard to build up 75 points to get $2 off of them. They always have a great array of films and newly released blockbusters. Also one of the few theaters in town that has morning matinees. Every Tuesday it’s less than $6 a ticket. The hands down best theater in Colorado Springs. Rating: 4.75 stars out of 5 (would be a five star for not the concession maze)

Movie Pass

Movie Pass

By far the most amazing and spectacular deal that oddly very few know about, is the fantastical premiere entertainment pass known as “Movie Pass”. It’s quite simple – you subscribe at Moviepass.com for $9.95 a month and in 8-10 days you’ll receive a beautiful credit card called “Movie Pass”. You download the app and when you want to go to any of the 6,000+ movie theaters in America, you drive up, log into the app, select your movie time, then go to either stand in line at the ticket booth or use the kiosk, select the movie, your seats if applicable, and use the card to pay for the movie. When you registered using the app, Moviepass uploaded the exact ticket price to the card, and you are set to go. You can go to one movie every day as long as your subscription is active. I can’t express more how amazing this offer is. Hurry now as you never know how long it’ll run. The only problem with the program is you can’t get the pass in the mail quick enough! Rating: 5 stars out of 5 :: So far, I’ve used it twice – seeing “Paddington Bear 2” and “The Commuter” – no snags whatsoever. In fact originally wanted to see Jumanji and by the time i got through the line to the ticket agent it sold out and was able to instantly just pay for Paddington Bear with it so I could see with my son. 1/15/18.
