The Reel Appeal

The Reel Appeal is hosted by Mark Salcido and 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.

We’re back with more news and on our in-depth reviews! Mark and Kelsey talk about Christopher Nolan stepping back from Warner Bros., 2021 film schedule is already changing, and much much more.

Our Recent Review is Promising Young Woman, and our Geriatric Cinematic is 1978's I Spit on Your Grave. We already have so much to say about these two films, but out of nowhere came a recommendation from a listener. Yes, we talk about The Beast (1988) in our Variety Time segment and we really need you to watch this obscure gem. Even Kelsey was blown away by this war film.

Next week's episode will be filled to the brim with serial killers. The dynamic duo's Recent Review will be The Little Things and we tackle 1995's Se7en. You can find the Denzel Washington and Jared Leto starring movie premiering on HBO Max on January 29th. The classic David Fincher film is also streaming on HBO Max and is available to rent on Amazon, YouTube, Google Play, Apple TV, other VODs.

It’s that time of the year when you eat too much and feel guilty about it later. Yeah, I’m talking about Thanksgiving! So we’re doing a special on it and giving Paramount's Planes, Trains & Automobiles the Geriatric Cinematic review the John Huges classic deserves.

If watching it isn’t part of your Thanksgiving tradition, it should be. But we also share some traditions and stories just in case you need a little more on the side like the gravy people always pour on your potatoes when you didn’t ask for it. Gross.

Also, Mark sings a lovely rendition of La Bamba. Enjoy.

Speaking of La Bamba Next week's show pits Mark's past love with David Bowie. Our Recent Review will be on Stardust and pair that up with La Bamba.
