Movie Review: ‘The Interview’ Starring Seth Rogen, James Franco
Jan 2015 06

The Interview PosterFirst it was on, then it was off, now it’s on again, sort of. The Interview, a comedy starring James Franco and Seth Rogen has been one of the hottest topics in the entertainment world this past week. Thanks to the reaction of many after the film was taken out of theaters, it’s not gotten a new lease on life. It’s now become an act of patriotism to see this film. Looking at it as a way to defy a dictator, I used my debit card and fed my television $6 to do my part in protecting freedom of speech. God Bless America!

Regardless of how funny The Interview is, it will forever go down as the film that upset North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un so much that he declared it an “act of war.”

Now that I have seen the movie for myself, it makes me laugh to think that theaters were scared to show the film, as it’s truly nothing more than a sophomoric comedy.

James Franco plays Dave Skylark, a self-centered celebrity talk show host. Seth Rogen play Aaron Rapaport, Skylark’s uptight producer.

This we tackle The Hobbit. Which is good because they’re easy to tackle unless you get one of the invisible ones. We’re down to three this week as Blake and Kevin are out Christmas shopping. Together? We’ll never tell.

But we discuss the Sony hacking scandal and its potential Spider-man ramifications, political leanings are revealed, and the mantle of “creepy” almost passes from Joe to another. All this plus a Video Recovery from Dan and a Box Office Report (eventually) from Tom.

73: ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Starring Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton
Dec 2014 17

Exodus Movie PosterRain! Rain! The crops are saved! Hollywood finally made a new movie. Well, if you count yet another Moses movie as “new”. But it’s been two weeks since we’ve had a major release so, like being at a bar at closing time, it ain’t pretty but we’ll take it.

Ridley Scott gives us Exodus: Gods & Kings the original tale of “white flight” starring Christian Bale as Moses while the Red Sea is being played by the tears of film critics. All this plus Tom uses the phrase “dead babies” way more than he probably should.

72: The Year Was 1973 (The Sting, Paper Moon, Live and Let Die, Enter The Dragon, Sleeper)
Dec 2014 11

The Sting PosterHollywood takes another week off. (Pyramid? A horror movie? In December? Really?) Well, just because they phoned it in doesn’t mean we did.

Instead of spotlighting a film we decided to focus on a year. So we fired up our Random Year Generator (Patent Pending) and it spit out 1973. We’ve each picked a beloved film to discuss. Some are more beloved than others but none of them are actually Beloved. And not just because that came out in 1998.

It’s Reel Spoilers #72: 1973. You’ve been warned.

Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Blake Fehl, Joe Buttice, Dan Graney, Kevin Brackett
Run-time: 1hr 45min
