Spoilers! I promise not to ruin Kevin Smiths new series

Yesterday indie rockstar Kevin Smith launched his new movie review series, Spoilers. Par for the course, Smith never does anything according to convention. This is not a regular show, you wont find it on your tv. Rather, as traditional tv is further diluted by hundreds of channels and more younger viewers switching to online viewing, this show is being broadcast exclusively on Hulu, for free! Nor is Spoilers a tradition movie review show. Instead of having two stuffy old guys clinically dissecting film; each week, the show will take a group of everyday Joes to the theatre to see a new release. For the inaugural episode, ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Guns’ Kev & the Spoilers review Snow White and the Huntsman; with the general consensus being that it’s a gorgeously shot entertaining summer movie but is lacking in character development and that Kristen Stewart’s acting is underwhelming and at times even distracting. One of the Spoilers hit the nail on the head saying, “She was like a prop, everyone else just acted around her.” So I guess we get more reprise of her razor sharp deer in the headlights method of acting made famous in Twilight. “She always looks like she’s about to say something important, and then they cut away; I’m like wait wait wait!”

What I really like about this show is the unbiased reviewers mixed in with Kevin’s commentary. You get opinions ranging from rating the film for its mere entertainment popcorn value up to it’s overall film worthiness, all laced with Kev’s patented brand of comedy.
