Most weeks on ReelBlend, the hosts dig into relevant movies that are coming to theaters, sharing stories of celebrities they've been able to interview or reacting to big-ticket news items and trailers that you, the listener, are excited about. Other times, they get stuck on an old movie that they happen to disagree on, leading to some heated debates.
And man, do you want to hear this week's debate over Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2.
It started on social media, when Sean O'Connell innocently called Raimi's Spidey sequel a "disappointing" movie. That turned out to be a massive pot-stirrer on Twitter, where plenty of people decided to weigh in and tell him how wrong he was:
Naturally, Sean took it to the Podcast, where Kevin McCarthy stuck up for Sam Raimi's work, and Jake Hamilton broke the tie. It's segments like this one that we think make ReelBlend a special listen each week, so give this episode a play.
Don't worry. There were plenty of other breaking news items that the guys got into this week, including reactions to the new trailers for Mary Poppins Returns, Captain Marvel and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. In addition, Jake and Kevin ventured out to L.A. to conduct interviews with the cats of Halloween. And Kevin finally caught Damien Chazelle's First Man, meaning that two of us have seen it now. Jake will have to break the tie, because Kevin liked it a lot more than Sean did.
Finally, this week's #BlendGame is dedicated to the films of the late icon Burt Reynolds. You better believe at least one of us sang the praises of Boogie Nights.
