Movie Review: ‘Deadpool’ Starring Ryan Reynolds, T.J. Miller, Morena Baccarin

Posted: February 12, 2016 at 9:41 am   /   Movie Reviews

You’ve watched the trailers. You’ve seen the billboards. You downloaded the leaked footage. You read the tweets. You listened to the interviews. By now, if you haven’t heard there is a Deadpool movie coming out, I’m not sure how you are reading an online review (unless your grandma printed it out at the library and […]

157: Return of the Deep Fried Tacos

Posted: February 9, 2016 at 9:55 am   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

It’s the return of Deep Fried Tacos. What’s a deep fried taco, you ask? It’s a film that, like the aforementioned taco, you know is bad but you love it anyway. Just to be clear, these aren’t deliberately bad movies that are winking at the audience. No, save that Sharknado crap for SyFy. We’re talking […]

Posted: February 5, 2016 at 3:09 pm   /   Film, Movie Reviews

It’s been five years since Hong Kong’s action superstar Donnie Yen and director Wilson Yip brought us the first installment of the Ip Man franchise, a story based on the creator of the Wing Chun style of martial arts and made famous by the legendary Bruce Lee (one of Ip Man’s students in real life).

156: Box Office Report (1/29 – 1/31)

Posted: February 3, 2016 at 9:55 am   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

This week lots of lessons are learned. Tom teaches Joe how time works. Joe teaches us that all Coast Guard movies are the same. And Dan teaches us how to sneak into a movie theater Three Stooges style. Except he probably calls it “the picture show,” or a “nickelodeon,” or something – because he’s old. […]

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

Posted: January 29, 2016 at 9:55 am   /   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 […]

154: ‘Dirty Grandpa’ Box Office Report (1/22 – 1/24)

Posted: January 28, 2016 at 9:55 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 […]

Disney NEWSIES Delivers at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis (January 19-31)

Posted: January 23, 2016 at 9:50 am   /   Live Theater, Live Theater Reviews

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 […]

153: ’13 Hours’ Starring John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, David Denman

Posted: January 22, 2016 at 7:19 am   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

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 […]
