Hey folks, Matt here with a supplemental Spoiler Show episode for you. This week, I had the privilege of sitting down on the couch at The Lobby and talking to Kevin Martin, owner and operator of that fine establishment. He’s also half of the dynamic duo that run Dedfest, Edmonton’s yearly horror film festival and monthly retrospective screenings at the Metro Cinema. http://spoilershow.podomatic.com/entry/2012-12-15T19_16_51-08_00 We talk at great length about the state of movies these days, […]

Hey there! Very special episode for you this week, what with the Apocalypse on the way and all, Marcus and I decided to do a public service announcement concerning all the myriad ways we might snuff it. http://spoilershow.podomatic.com/entry/2012-12-07T08_25_03-08_00 I ranked 10 of my favorite Apocalypses by their likelihood of happening, and Marcus and I reasoned through them. We also let slip which ones we think are the most entertaining (in theory, always in theory). In […]

In this week’s very special episode of the Spoiler Show, Marcus is off at a conference, so I rounded up a few of my friends to try a new game. Myself, Torrey Dance (the Batman of Morrissey facts) and newcomer Sam Rollans all decided to pair some of our favorite television shows with a specific beer. http://spoilershow.podomatic.com/entry/2012-10-19T16_35_55-07_00 As per usual, this descended into a wide ranging chat, and descended even further after that. Definitely an […]

Well hello there, friends out in Radioland! It’s time for The Spoiler Show! This week, Marcus and I attempted to talk about what we’re enjoying in the current TV universe, but instead got sidetracked (whaaa?) into a discussion of two TV shows where the universe is routinely saved, namely Star Trek and Doctor Who. We both remembered how long Star Trek has been a part of our lives, and also got into a spirited little […]

As advertised by portents and prophecy, the time of #SpoilerFriday has returned, bringing in its wake THE SPOILER SHOW! This week, Marcus and I try to tangle the hugely sticky wicket that is DC Comics’ “New 52” initiative, which has almost celebrated its first birthday. We offer up our favorite books from the current publishing slate, and I somewhat foolishly attempt to explain, among other things, the concept of the multiverse, why making Green Lantern […]

And here’s the last part of my 2011 movie reviews, parts one, two and three can be found by clicking their respective numbers.

Here’s the third part of my yearly movie reviews, parts one and two are right there. For the uninitiated, my ranking system is of course completely subjective and could shift a little depending on my mood and the length of time passed between me seeing the movie and now. Except Green Lantern. Fuck that movie. SPOILERBABIES GET A SPOILER WARNING HERE IT IS. 20. Rubber (Metro Cinema) See, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking “How […]
