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.
You’ve been warned.
Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Blake Fehl, Dan Graney, Joe Buttice, Kevin Brackett
Run-time: 1hr 5min
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).
You’ve been warned.
Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Blake Fehl, Joe Buttice, Kevin Brackett
Run-time: 1hr 11min
If Tinker, Tailor, Solidier, Spy is croquembouche (the elaborate, ornate dessert), simultaneously being rich and decadent with its twisty, turny plots, and subtle and nuanced, with its labyrinthine undercurrents, then The November Man is a skittle.
There’s an approximation of what the spy/espionage genre entails, it’s just not actually there… which is why we have an agency handler saying things like, “I want eyes on him!” or a reporter uttering, “Let me get my dictaphone.”
Based on a series of books by Bill Granger, “The November Man” is a spy thriller/revenge flick in the vein of the Bourne series or Taken… but without the thrills. Or much of the spying. What we do have is not James Bond doing a lot of not James Bond stuff (unless James Bond liked to sit around and talk. Or walk and talk. Or just talk.)
With the recent rumors about the plot of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, I decided to take a look at one of my favorite Batman stories from the last 10 years.
The Bat-Franchise is one of Warner Brothers most lucrative properties. The advantage of having Ben Affleck make his debut in a non solo Batman movie is that the character will be established in this film. The door is wide open for a stand alone movie next. Why not start with a story about what happened to the second Robin, Jason Todd?
The current rumor is that there is a tattered Robin costume on display in the Batcave. The fanboys out there know that Bruce kept the destroyed costume of Jason Todd (the 2nd Robin). Jason was murdered by the Joker in the epic story line “Death in the Family”.
