71: Five Completely Different Versions of ‘A Christmas Carol’
Dec 2014 03

scrooged posterThis week we put you in the holiday spirit with a special episode dedicated to the story that started it all…A Christmas Carol. Ok, ok…the other story that started it all. Originally published in 1843, A Christmas Carol is considered to have popularized many of our holiday traditions such as family gatherings, using the phrase “Merry Christmas”, and avoiding eye-contact with bell-ringers.

Over the years the story has been adapted numerous times; too many to count. Although some experts estimate there have been as many as four. So this week we each member of Reel Spoilers visits you with a different Ghost of Christmas Carol Past.

It’s Reel Spoilers #71: A Christmas Carol

Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Blake Fehl, Joe Buttice, Dan Graney, Kevin Brackett

Nov 2014 26

hunger_games_mocking_jay_a_pAmerica’s love affair with archery continues as Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 takes over theaters. Or is it America’s love affair with dystopian futures? Or it could be that America just loves a good ol’ fashion cash grab as Hollywood once again opts to adapt the weakest book in a series into multiple films. Either way that’s what we’re spoiling.

All this plus a Box Office Report from Kevin, a Video Recovery from Dan and Tom issues Reel Spoilers first ever apology to a listener. And, shockingly, it’s not because of something Joe said.
It’s Reel Spoilers #70 – Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

Movie Review: “Walking Man” – St. Louis International Film Festival Selection
Nov 2014 17

10562511_748065468563400_1898706324060301371_oAfter a Missouri high school loses three students to suicide in seven weeks, a father and son walk 200 miles across the state to find an answer to Missouri’s rural suicide epidemic. Both men suffer from bipolar disorder, sharing their struggles with strangers and each other for the first time.

We’re about halfway through the St. Louis International Film Festival and last night gave us a bit of a home town story. It featured the World Premiere of a new documentary called Walking Man. Mark Norwine stars as the central focus of a new documentary from local filmmakers Joshua Salzberg and Eric Norwine (son of Mark). Brought about by a string of local suicides at St Clair High School, Walking Man follows Mark as he walks the Katy Trail from Kansas City to St. Louis in order to raise awareness of the effects of the stigmas of mental health, suicide and bullying. Not only does it achieve that goal, but it does so in a refreshing way that treats its audience with respect.
