GAL APPROVED! Lifetime Goes Country. This Weekend’s Hot Movies. Hot Finds From ComicCon!By Delaina Dixon | October 18, 2019 | Gal Approved
PLAY. Inside the ComicCon gifting suite, we got our hands on Hasbro Star Wars Scream Sabers. This interactive toy makes sounds as you slice it through the air, and it allows you to record your own voice to be heard while battling your enemies. Rosario Dawson is definitely ready for the fight in Zombieland: Double Tap (see below!).
We also caught The Good Place‘s Jameela Jamil checking out Uniqers. Created by three sisters whose father is a shoe designer, this innovative trio devised a unique sneaker that is colorful, sustainably made and can be customized to your liking. So get creative and Uniquers.
SEE. Weather is settling into its cooler phase… perfect time to head to the movies. Our suggestions are Disney’s This sequel to the 2014 hit has Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora questioning their family ties, making unexpected allies and fighting new dark forces. We say go just to study Angelina Jolie‘s Maleficent wardrobe! See another group of evil forces at play in Zombieland Double Tap, where the original Zombieland cast gathers to face off against another clan of the undead. This time around Rosario Dawson joins the fray as they seek another place to just sustain after the end of the world. Both movies open Friday, Oct. 18.
WATCH. Even us brown gals like to go country every once in a while. Lifetime’s newest biopic, chronicles the lives of two country gals, Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn, who made iconic music in the 1950s and sixties. While you may not know their names, you probably know one or two of their songs, like “Crazy,” sung by Patsy. These ladies dealt with issues all women come across: overbearing husbands, balancing family life with career and maintaining a friendship that comes to an end way too soon. Kudos to stars Megan Hilty and Jessie Meuller: these Broadway vets sing themselves, adding just another level of authenticity to a timeless friendship #GirlPower. Patsy &Loretta airs Saturday, Oct. 19 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.
