It’s a light week at the box office. The week’s sole new release couldn’t even crack the top ten. So we decided to bare our souls and reveal to you our dirty little cinematic secrets. That film that we know is a big steaming turd and yet…we can’t help but love.
Some call them “guilty pleasures” but we’ve never been one to take the easy route. We call them “deep fried tacos”. Why? Well, you know they’re not good for you. You know you’ll regret eating them. But you devour them anyway.
It’s Reel Spoilers #58: Deep Fried Taco Movies.
You’ve been warned. No, seriously. We’re warning you.

Over the past year, Marvel has been releasing reprints of Miracleman (every issue has been out of print for the past 20 years) from British publisher Eclipse Comics. The book was written by Alan Moore and featured art from Alan Davis, Garry Leech, Chuck Austin, Rick Veitch, and John Totleben. Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham would pick the book as well. The character has been involved in a decades long legal battle over who really owns the rights. At last years Comic Con, Marvel announced that they finally had the rights to issues and they would begin to republish the single issues in their original form.
Enter for your chance to receive a family four-pack of passes to a special advance screening!
It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson (Gamble) and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Connick, Jr.), rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winter’s surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins’ social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium.

Episode #57 is a twofer as we spoil both The November Man and As Above/So Below. And, just to make things more enticing, we didn’t really care for either. We always do our best work when we don’t like a movie and we have some head-scratching questions about both films.
All this plus a Video Recovery from Dan and a box office report from Kevin.
It’s Reel Spoilers #57: The November Man and As Above/So Below.

Are you hesitant to listen to an episode of Reel Spoilers until you see the film? Then this is the episode for you since we barely talk about this week’s film. And judging by the paltry box office chances are you didn’t see Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. And honestly there isn’t much to say…it’s more of the same only in 3D. So instead we talk about our dreams of becoming so popular that we can sell out (Blake Fehl bobble-heads, anyone?) and which movies were so bad that we actually walked out. And sometimes we even talk about Sin City. We’re crazy like that.
Plus, Tom gives us a Video Recovery of a movie that is worth talking about.
It’s Reel Spoilers #56: Sin City – A Dame to Kill For (kinda sorta).
