    reel

    Hi teachers:
    (1)Could you tell me what the " final reel" in the sentence below?
    I shall not reveal the movie's final reel.
    Does it mean " last scene" or " final ending"?

    (2)Also, I saw the sentence as follows:
    My head was heeling.I felt hot all over.
    I wonder if the sentence underlined is common.

    Could you verify it for me?
    Thanks a lot!

    Re: reel

    Thanks for bhaisahab's verification.
    One more question,if I know that I am going to tackle a lot of things, May I say:
    My head reeled as soon as I thought of tons of work.( I didn't really reel. I want to express it in a figurative way)?Also I wonder if it is natural.
    Thanks for your verification .

    Re: reel

    My head reeled when I thought of the tons of work I had to do.

    This is more natural.
