Sometimes they agree and sometimes they don't but that's what makes it interesting!On The Reel-ists Podcast, Oscar and Donnie share these conversations with you. They will report their movie reviews and discuss how certain scenes and aspects of the movie tie-in (or don't) to real life.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

We review "Godzilla: King of the Monsters" in our final episode! This movie is visually stunning and fully enjoyable despite having a predictable story. While humans in monster movies can be either supportive or a distraction in the story, this movie manages to use them well by providing characters that support the story and give some meaning to the monsters. Find out how this movie delivers as a blockbuster and The Reel-ists Podcast's final “Reel” score!

Rocketman

We may not be able to sing like Elton John but we sure can talk about his biopic "Rocketman" in Episode 149! An unexpected musical that tells the story differently than other biopic movies. The movie’s highlight is Taron Egerton’s performance who excellently transforms into the artist. While there may always be accuracy questions about the story, that does not deter from the enjoyment of hearing the story that was told. Check out to see if this was one of the better biopics and the guys' “Reel” scor

The Intruder

We don’t mean to intrude but we ask you check out Episode 142 for our review of "The Intruder"! An interesting premise that could possibly happen in real life. While delivering some good scares and good performances, a lot of believability is lost after the story becomes about extending the premise instead of building on it. Tune in to see if this movie still manages to bring enough entertainment to make it worth a watch.

Long Shot

Check out Episode 141 for our review of "The Long Shot". An unlikely pair finding love and having a happy ending may seem so Hollywood, but it works for this movie! The chemistry, the jokes and the story all worked well together as you are entertained throughout the movie. While not all jokes land as expected, there’s plenty of good jokes that work while Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen managed to keep relationship engaging for the audience. Find out how this movie lands with the “Reel” score!
