At its best, the ReelBlend podcast balances the mainstream with the Indie, the blockbuster with the arthouse, and the commercial player with the Oscar contender. Because the hosts treat each movie with the same level of respect, they’re able to speak intelligently about all types of films that cross their paths.
Such is the buffet that ReelBlend provides!
Sean O’Connell, Jake Hamilton and Kevin McCarthy are back at it for episode #47 of ReelBlend, and it starts with a news sprint. The guys debate the effectiveness of the new Captain Marvel trailer, all basically agreeing that the first one was better. Blockbuster Video nods!
They also got around to discussing the 10 movies chosen by AFI as the best of 2018. A few titles keep making the rounds on these Year-End lists, from Eighth Grade to A Quiet Place and First Reformed. Does this mean that they will be Oscar contenders when the Academy starts to reveal their choices?
For “This Week In Movies,” the guys looked to Netflix, where Andy Serkis’ dark take on Mowgli reached theaters (and also the streaming service). Kevin also was able to comment on Once Upon A Deadpool, but had to hold off on giving his full review until the embargo date lifts.
Before they played this week’s #Blend game, all about the movies of Clint Eastwood, Sean and Kevin gave a review of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. They kept it spoiler free, so don’t worry about listening to it. The guys have you covered!
