It shouldn’t be too laborious to get up off your keister and see the new film written and directed by Jason Reitman, right? I mean, the guy made “Thank You For Smoking” and “Up in the Air”.

But what if I told you that JJ Reity was trying to horn in on Nicholas Sparks territory. Maybe grabbing excellent actors like Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet to steam up the screen.

Wait, no, listen: Brolin is an escaped murderer who holds Winslet and her son captive while hiding out from the cops. That sounds better, right?

Ok, then they fall in love.

No, seriously, some of us really liked it. Find out who by listening to JC, Martin, Chris and Ashley take turns dishing on “Labor Day”.

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
