I know what you guys are all saying: “Damn, Chris, where the hell is my review for The Longest Ride? I’ve just GOT to know how the latest Nicholas Sparks film is. DAMMIT WHERE IS THE REVIEW!” Ok, already, here it is. Jeez. You guys are ridiculously huge Sparks fans.

Scott Eastwood plays rodeo bull-riding wanna-be-champ Luke Collins and he meet-cutes with wanna-be-east-coast-art-curator-college-girl Sophia Danko (Under the Dome‘s Britt Robertson). How will they possibly find a way to coalesce the needs of their raging hormones with their distinctly separate realities? Why, with the allegorically helpful flashbacks of an old Jewish man (Alan Alda) who tells them the stories of his love long past (performed in sepia-tone by Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston and Oona Chaplin).


You might be surprised about our reaction to this one. Diva and Chris reporting in…

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.
