The Reel Appeal

The Reel Appeal is hosted by ScreenGeek’s Mark Salcido and Your Entertainment Corner’s Kelsey Loiselle as they discuss film news, reviews, and the state of cinema today. We remove the nostalgia protection on classic films and take a bat to it to see if it stands the test of time.

Hey everyone! We're back this week, and if you are here too, then we think you'll enjoy this one. We're talking about the love of cinema. Our Recent Review is The Fabelmans, and our Geriatric CInematic is Ed Wood (1994).

We would be remiss if we didn't talk about when we fell in love with cinema, so that is our Variety Time. We bet you'll never guess our choices.

Next week, our Recent Review is Bones and All, now playing in theaters, and our Geriatric Cinematic is The Hunger (1983), streaming on The Criterion Channel or available to rent on Apple TV, Amazon, YouTube TV, and other VOD services.
