This week we give it to the The Giver. (Wordplay!) “What’s The Giver?” you ask. Why, it’s the latest dystopian-future, kill-fest for kids. They’re releasing them monthly now. And, just in case that doesn’t sound dreary enough for you they filmed this one in black & white. Well, large chunks of it anyway.
All that plus Tom reveals his connection to Ferguson (it’s not that exciting) and Dan has a video recovery which is more exciting. Well, his recovery is even if the movie isn’t.
It’s Reel Spoilers #55: The Giver.
You’ve been warned.
Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Blake Fehl, Dan Graney, Joe Buttice

Fun fact: you can’t spell “awesome” without “bacon.”
I lied. You can. I’m not very smart. Whatever.
The fact remains, though, that bacon is more popular than ever. Whether it’s as a part of your diet or as the subject matter of your wardrobe, bacon will forever be on our minds and in our hearts (mostly as bits of saturated fat).
After last year’s premier of Baconfest, Team Bacon LLC is gearing up to present the Second Annual St. Louis Baconfest, set to take place this coming Saturday, August 13, at the Soldiers Memorial off 13th and Chestnut. Just as was the case last year, the centerpiece will be a world-record hog log.
It’s Turtle Power & pizza this week as we drill down on the latest incarnation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The age divide is noticeable on this one as Kevin and Joe have great affinity and nostalgia for the property whereas Reel Spoilers’ elder statesmen Tom and Dan had body hair and fulltime jobs when TMNT entered the pop culture consciousness.

In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables—but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.
