Martin, Chris, Ashley and JC all are deep in the shit of Oscar season reviews. Although they all agree that the Mark Wahlberg-starring “Lone Survivor” being submitted for awards consideration might be a bit presumptuous, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s a nail-biter of a movie.

Wahlberg, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch, and Taylor Kitsch all fight for the right to be the titular spoilery Lone Survivor in this film by Peter Berg, more than making up for whatever the hell possessed him to make “Battleship”. Check out our thorough analysis right here on Highly Suspect Reviews!

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.
