Not long ago Kevin Smith announced that he'd be hosting a new movie review show this summer on Hulu called Spoilers, which, according to him, seemed like it'd be a potpourri of all kinds of movie-related shenanigans. Now the first episode has arrived, focusing on Snow White and the Huntsman, which also includes an interview with Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher.
So what's the verdict? Well, we kinda dig the audience participation in this, with Smith playing talk-show host as he mingles with the crowd of folks who watched the film in order to discuss it on the episode. Are we getting real, in-depth analysis on Snow White and the Huntsman here? No, but we are getting multiple opinions on different aspects of the film, not to mention it's colorful and pretty funny, if you like Smith's shtick. His interview with Fisher is also a decent watch, covering various aspects of her career from slave Leia to Blues Brothers to more.
Gotta say it's not a bad show. Smith, who often dominates conversations with his larger-than-life personality, is a bit more restrained here as host, and he knows how to work a room. It's lively, engaging, and different from movie review shows we're used to watching. And although this first episode does feel a little long, we're curious to see how Smith changes up its format as we move from week to week. Is this for everyone? No. Smith has his haters, and those haters will probably find a way to hate this just because Kevin Smith is involved.
Give it a shot below and let us know what you think. Would you continue watching this each week?
