ReelBlend #66: Our Avengers: Endgame Spoiler-Free Review

Josh Brolin as Thanos

Powered by RedCircle

We are down one man this week. And it’s Avengers: Endgame week, of all weeks. So let’s stand up and salute Sean O’Connell and Kevin McCarthy, as these true American heroes showed up to ReelBlend, and review quite possibly the most anticipated movie of our collective lifetimes… without spoiling anything!

That’s right. You guys can listen to ReelBlend episode #66 whether you have seen Avengers: Endgame or not. And by the time you read this, some of you likely have seen Endgame, as the movie is selling out at a record pace.

But Sean and Kevin review the movie without giving away a single detail, so listen away. Not only do you get their reaction to the blockbuster, you will get to hear Kevin’s stories about seeing Avengers: Endgame at the premiere, where he rubbed elbows with Kevin Smith, took a photo with Chris Evans, and got two bear hugs from Thanos himself, Josh Brolin.

Before the guys tackle Endgame this week, they get into the Academy’s decision not to penalize movies that are made by Netflix for Oscar consideration. They also read Steven Spielberg’s statement on the controversy, and give the legendary filmmaker a pass for his opinions.

The guys also play #ScarJoBlend, and avoid picking a Marvel movie when naming their favorite Scarlett Johansson movies!

And yes, Jake Hamilton gets to weigh in on Avengers: Endgame, even though he is on assignment this week. Dig into this week’s episode to hear what Jake thought of the new MCU movie.
