87: ‘The Divergent Series: Insurgent’ Starring Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Kate Winslet

2015-03-25 :: Review St. Louis

Max Foizey from 97.1 FM Talk (KFTK) and Max On Movies joins us in the war room this week to take on the cumbersomely titled The Divergent Series: Insurgent. Divergent is back. Should that be met with excitement or trepidation? Wait…which one is Divergent again? Is that one with the mazes? Or the one with [...]…

86: ‘Cinderella’ Starring Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett

2015-03-20 :: Review St. Louis

Four guys sitting around discussing ball gowns. That’s what we’ve been reduced to this week thanks to Cinderella. “Why didn’t we see the new Liam Neeson movie?” you ask. Because that’s a trick question. There are no “new Liam Neeson movies”. They’ve been re-releasing Taken 2 with different titles for three years now. You’ve been [...]…

85: ‘CHAPPiE’ Starring Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver

2015-03-12 :: Review St. Louis

This week Neill Blomkamp returns with RoboCopy… Ummm… I mean Chappie. A movie that our legal department requires us to inform you resembles RoboCop in no way whatsoever (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). So please ignore all of the cops who are robots, and the Peter Weller sound-alike voice work, and that giant evil robot which [...]…

2015-03-11 :: Review St. Louis

Technical difficulties delayed episode #84 but they have been overcome. If good taste can’t stop us we’re not going to let computer problems do it. This week (last week?) on the show we take on the latest from Will Smith – Focus. Good or bad there’s one thing on which you can rely…there’s no way [...]…

83: Tom’s Wedding Movie Spectacular (Honeymoon Edition)

2015-02-24 :: Review St. Louis

We’re skipping Hot Tub Time Machine 2 this week but we have a good reason. Tom’s getting married. (Don’t feel bad…we’re shocked too.) Since he decided to spend the week of the wedding, you know, doing wedding stuff it made recording an episode some problematic. So we interrupt our regular broadcast to give you one [...]…

2015-02-16 :: Review St. Louis

This week we celebrate Valentine’s Day with Fifty Shades of Grey. And, to make it even more romantic we’ve brought in help – our significant others. When it comes to a movie like this you don’t want to hear just a bunch of dudes talking. So we’ve fixed that for you. And, as if discovering [...]…

81: ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne

2015-02-13 :: Review St. Louis

Mila Kunis cleans toilets and Channing Tatum is half-dog/half-man in Jupiter Ascending. The Wachowskis are back and that’s starting to sound like a threat. There’s also something about aliens and stuff. Let us talk you through the film so you can be just as confused as we are. Plus quite possibly the quickest box office [...]…

2015-02-05 :: Review St. Louis

If you like it when we second guess every conceivable plot-hole of a film then you are in for a treat. Project Almanac is an embarrassment of riches. It’s a time travel movie with no apparent rules for time travel. “Rules? Where we’re going, we don’t need ‘rules’.” So sit back and relax as we [...]…

For episode 78 we set our sights (get it?) on American Sniper. Clint Eastwood returns to the director’s chair (and we all know how much he loves chairs) to give us the story of the deadliest sniper in military history. But the real question is…can we make it through such a sensitive topic without saying [...]…

This week on the show it’s Taken 3. The first one was awesome, the second one…not so much. Is the third time a charm? Well, let’s just say that Liam Neeson isn’t the only one with a special set of skills. It’s just that his skills are much cooler. We might not be able defend [...]…

Rain! 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 [...]…

Hollywood 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 [...]…

America’s love affair with archery continues as Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 takes over theaters. Or is it America’s love affair with dystopian futures?

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.

This week Hollywood ushers in the month of February with Labor Day. We don’t get it either (other than the chick-flick counter-programing to Super Bowl Weekend). Written and directed by Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air) one would think they’d be in for a treat. One would be wrong. The results left all of [...]…

30: ‘I, Frankenstein’ Starring Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Miranda Otto

2014-01-28 :: Review St. Louis

This week on Reel Spoilers we subjected ourselves to I, Frankenstein. It wasn’t screened for critics however, since it was such a slow week for new releases, we took it upon ourselves to see the movie. When will we learn? So, since we subjected ourselves to this craptacular movie you are now legally obligated to [...]…

29: ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ Starring Chris Pine, Kevin Costner, Kenneth Branagh

2014-01-22 :: Review St. Louis

This week on the show it’s Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Tom Clancy’s marquee character returns to the big screen and puts the “meh” in “meh-diocre”. What is there to say about a movie whose villain’s “iconic” moment involves threatening someone with a light bulb? As it turns out…not much. So join us for a meandering [...]…

2014-01-13 :: Review St. Louis

This week on the show we dig into Her. We delve into Her? We tackle Her? As you’ll hear this is a joke we do not tire of. Ever. The movie of the week stars and Joaquin Phoenix as a man who falls in love with an Operating System (yeah, you read that right) and [...]…

This week on the show we welcome our first ever guests (Steve Kelley has technically been a guest, but since he already writes for ReviewSTL we’re choosing to ignore that) to the bunker.

This week on Reel Spoilers we’re down to three people. Damn, you holidays. But we forge on and tackle American Hustle. It’s an all-star cast featuring Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and a whole bunch of people whose names I don’t feel like typing.

After a week off Reel Spoilers is back and more spoilery than ever. This week it’s all about The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Here’s a little Tolkien trivia for you. Did you know that Wikipedia describes Smaug as a “fictional dragon”? This can only mean that dragons are real! Holy shit! It must be [...]…

24: Christmas Merry Movie Fun Time Explosion

2013-12-03 :: Review St. Louis

This week on Reel Spoilers we have shunned new releases. It was a light week as most studios feared Hunger Games: Catching Fire wasn’t done sucking up all the money in the marketplace. (And rightly so). Frozen came out but kids movies don’t really lend themselves to what we do (Spoiler Alert: It was cute [...]…

This week on Reel Spoilers it’s all about The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Bad news for fans of snark because, well…we all actually liked it. But you can’t talk about a movie based on a series of “Young Adult” novels without bringing up Twilight. So our snark streak continues abated. Whew! Also, we give a [...]…

This week it’s a special edition of Reel Spoilers. Something we’re calling Reel Spoilers: Rewound. It was a light week for Hollywood. Yes, we know Best Man Holiday made $35 million this weekend.

This week on Reel Spoilers it’s “hammer time”. See what we did there? We’re talking about Thor who has a hammer. But then we made a nostalgic ‘90s reference because everyone loves those. You’re welcome. What else can we say about Thor? It’s not exactly like we can fact check the thing. This ain’t Captain [...]…

This week on Reel Spoilers we spend a little bit of time on Last Vegas and 12 Years a Slave.

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.

Vin Diesel willed a new Riddick movie into existence and we tackle it this week on Reel Spoilers. It’s one of the odder cinematic experiences of the year…and that’s not a compliment.
