It opened to record-shattering numbers and currently sits as the highest grossing movie domestically of all time at $936million (third worldwide at a little over $2billion). Being Star Wars and having that kind of success (especially after following the stigma that lingers over the […]

Film Review: ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna

Posted: December 16, 2016 at 1:02 am   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews, Reviews

It’s not Star Wars. Right from the get-go, with the opening shots, Rogue One does its best to distinguish itself from the official trilogy films, Episode I-VII. And in a sense, it’s true. There’s no opening crawl, and the beloved theme is conspicuously absent. Furthermore, this is the first film in which a Skywalker doesn’t […]

156: Box Office Report (1/29 – 1/31)

Posted: February 3, 2016 at 7:03 pm   /   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.

So this is where we normally have some sort of synopsis where we try to entice you to listen. “Dan said something old timey. Tom was bored. Joe is creepy.” That sort of thing… But here’s the deal – we’re talking about STAR WARS. That’s all you need to know. The internet has been screaming […]

144: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Box Office Report (12/18-12/20)

Posted: December 22, 2015 at 11:21 am   /   Film, Reel Spoilers

The Box Office was pretty much a one trick pony this week. Apparently you saw Star Wars. Every. Single. One of you. But we still find things to talk about. Tom makes multiple “old timey” references. Why did ‘Sisters‘ open against ‘The Force Awakens?’ And Tom makes a major nerd confession. It’s Reel Spoilers 144: […]

Review: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ (Spoiler Free!)

Posted: December 18, 2015 at 7:42 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews, Reviews

Fair or not, generations are often remembered by events that coincide with their lives. Stories are told to younger generations about what it was like to be alive during these events. Sometimes, these are dramatic, world-altering events, such as World War II, the JFK assassination, or the 9/11 attacks. Other times, these events are much […]

Film Review: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Starring John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac

Posted: December 17, 2015 at 9:49 am   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews

Star Wars is back. Not back like it was in 1999. But really, back. I remember the hype and anticipation surrounding a new Star Wars film being released for the first time since 1983. I was much younger than, and had a lot less film criticism under my belt. But I still knew something was […]
