ReelBlend #62: Us Spoilers And Our Danny Elfman Interview

Lupita Nyong'o in US

Powered by RedCircle

The ReelBlend podcast tends to be a safe and positive space where movie lovers come to celebrate film. But every once in a while, a movie generates tension amongst the guys, and creates a spark of controversy that helps the guys get heated.

Jordan Peele’s Us is one of those movies.

And the funny thing is, Jake and Sean both like it. A lot, even. But Kevin loves it, and doesn’t agree with Jake and Sean’s issues with it.

This one gets very spoilery. But if you saw Us over opening weekend – and the box office suggests that a lot of you did – you are going to want to listen to this week’s episode of ReelBlend.

Before they got to spoilers, the guys discuss the Us box office, and they get into the alleged run time of Avengers: Endgame. The guys marvel (no pun untended) at how much of Endgame Disney and Marvel have been able to hide, with next to no real footage being shown in the marketing.

From there, it was a whole lot of Us talk. But that’s not all. Kevin conducted an interview with Danny Elfman on behalf of the podcast, where they talked Dumbo, and his entire career. You do NOT want to miss that conversation.

In light of March Madness, this week’s Blend game is #SportsBlend and the stories that came out of it were really personal and touching. Also, next week’s game already sounds like it’s going to be a blast.
