Review: ‘Life’ Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds

Posted: March 23, 2017 at 5:05 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Take a bit of Alien and a splash of Gravity and what do you get? The outcome is Life, the new space-thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds. Director Daniel Espinosa doesn’t change the game with Life, but the film is effective enough to keep your attention for just over 100 minutes. It tells the story […]

Posted: October 1, 2015 at 5:05 pm   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

We’re talking Everest this week but what do we know about mountains? So we brought in some experts. Brothers Mike & Steve Reardon have been to Everest. “Been to Everest” might be a bit of an understatement. They were making their way up the mountain when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal. And it doesn’t […]

Posted: February 15, 2015 at 4:59 pm   /   Comic Books, Film, Local

Finally.  After years of speculation and two lackluster (albeit not from a money making stand point) entries into the Spider-Man mythos, Disney/Marvel and Sony Pictures have come to an agreement to share the rights to The Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. This deal will bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and will allow Marvel to […]

67: ‘Nightcrawler’ Starring Jake Gyllenhaal w/ Bonus ‘Before I Go To Sleep’

Posted: November 3, 2014 at 4:49 pm   /   Film, Local, Reel Spoilers

Man, you guys sure must have done some trick and/or treating this weekend because you sure as hell didn’t go to the movies. The combined box office take for the top two films wouldn’t cover the catering budget on an Avengers movie. (But, in all fairness, there’s a lot of carbo-loading going on there.) Anyway, […]

Posted: September 23, 2013 at 3:03 pm   /   Film, Local, Reel Spoilers

This week on Reel Spoilers we take Prisoners… or take no Prisoners? Take on Prisoners? Hmmm… give me a second here. I’m trying to come up with some clever wordplay. But the movie is a gritty thriller about child abduction so all of our clever puns are pretty offensive. Even to us. And that’s saying […]

It’s hard to even fathom what it would be like to lose a child. One might argue that it would be even harder for one of your children to go missing, constantly battling with the thought of where they are and what is happening to them. No closure, just the never-ending struggle of living day […]
