Review: ‘The Intruder’ Starring Meagan Good, Michael Ealy, Dennis Quaid

Posted: May 3, 2019 at 7:05 am   /   Movie Reviews

For the first time in quite a while, I went to a see movie without knowing much of anything about it – that movie being Greta. I knew it starred Chloe Grace Moretz, whom I’ve been fond of since her breakout roles in 500 Days of Summer and more notably, Kick-Ass, and that the film […]

57: ‘November Man’ and ‘As Above/So Below’

Posted: September 2, 2014 at 12:26 pm   /   Film, Local, Reel Spoilers

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 […]
