ReelBlend Podcast #18: Spoiler-Free Infinity War Reactions, The Die Hard Debate And More
It's finally here. Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters. A movie we have been anticipating for years, and discussing -- in many different formats -- for an equal amount of time. So, of course, the guys from ReelBlend had to weigh in. All three of them saw it. They are NOT going into ANY spoilers. This is a safe space. Get their reactions to the latest Marvel Studios movie by playing the episode above.
From there, ReelBlend hosts Sean O'Connell, Jake Hamilton and Kevin McCarthy tackled the news of the week. Sean has been in Las Vegas all week for CinemaCon, and he discussed all sorts of footage that he has seen from movies like Solo: A Star Wars Story, James Wan's Aquaman, M. Night Shyamalan's Glass, and the live-action Aladdin. Sean had strong feelings about Will Smith's Genie, so listen to them in the episode.
The guys also broke down the latest Venom trailer, with Tom Hardy in the leading role. Watch this first, then listen to the guys:
The Unpopular Opinion segment came roaring back this week with a debate between Kevin and Sean on the Die Hard franchise. Which movie is better: the original Die Hard, or its second sequel, Die Hard with a Vengeance? The guys have strong opinions. Also, go to our @ReelBlend Twitter feed to tell us which side you agree with.
Finally, the ReelBlend guys played #TarantinoBlend this week, debating the BEST movie by Quentin Tarantino. As has been the case in the past, this means the absolute best movie by this filmmaker. Not your favorite. What movie do you think each host picked?
