155: ‘Dirty Grandpa’ Starring Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Aubrey Plaza, Julianne Hough

by Kevin Brackett / Published: January 29, 2016 at 1:51 pm   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

It’s a painful episode as we are subjected to ‘Dirty Grandpa’ – a movie so debased that even Creepy Joe was put off by it. January’s not even over and we have a serious contender for worst picture of the year. It’s crass, offensive and aggressively unfunny. So if you enjoy it when we hate […]

by Kevin Brackett / Published: January 28, 2016 at 10:48 am   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

The Revenant still tops at the box office. Star Wars is closing in on a billion dollars domestic, but it will probably never be the world champ. We’ll tell you why, plus Tom will teach Joe what a cough is, something makes Kevin cringe audibly, and we ruin The 5th Wave for you because it […]

Extra! Extra! Read All About It! It has been probably twenty years since I watched the 1992 film Newsies, starring a 17-year-old Christian Bale as Jack Kelly – the leader of what would become known as the “Newsboys Strike of 1899.” Aside from starring the future Oscar-winning actor, and being directed by Kenny Ortega, there […]

John Launius is back to talk about 13 Hours. He spends the bulk of the time explaining the C.I.A. to us like we’re third graders (which is for the best). It might get a little “Art Bell” this week but it’s a fascinating conversation about how the government might (or might not) work. And if […]

151: ‘The Revenant’ Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson

by Kevin Brackett / Published: January 15, 2016 at 3:14 pm   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

This week’s show was recorded before The Revenant got all that love from the Academy Awards, so ignore all that “Will Leo get an Oscar nod stuff.” The film is set in the early 1820s, which explains why Joe talks about the advancements in SD card technology. We also have all sorts of questions. How […]

148: ‘Joy’ Box Office Report (1/1 – 1/3)

by Kevin Brackett / Published: January 6, 2016 at 3:39 pm   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

We’re joined this week by Kelly Manno from the aptly titled Kelly Manno Show. It’s a freewheeling exchange as Star Wars is still #1, Kevin sullies the memory of Abbott & Costello only to then invite Joe to discuss both professional wrestling AND Rhonda Rousey. It’s like Kevin doesn’t even listen to this show sometimes. […]
