The Reel Dish

Movies. The way I see them


My name is David Dishman and The Reel Dish is an award-winning syndicated movie column I write. I am a staff writer and digital editor for the McAlester News-Capital and The Ada News. The column runs weekly in the News-Capital and is published regularly in other newspapers across the state of Oklahoma. is what happens when a journalist takes his work home with him. You’ll find additional reviews and other movie-related content here on this blog in addition to links to my professional work.

I do this because I love good movies. If you’re like me in this, we are going to be better buddies than Harry and Lloyd.

Enjoy the blog!
