Highly Suspect Reviews: Pixels

80’s video game characters coming to life and attacking major cities. Only a handful of old dudes who used to be the best at gaming can save us all. Sounds like the premise for a really cool Lord and Miller film, right? Unfortunately, it’s Chris Columbus and stars Adam Sandler and, get this, Kevin James as the President of the USA. Not even Peter Dinklage in a mullet (again) can save us from Pixels. But is it really as bad as all that? Chris, Ashley, Sarah, JC and Elliott are here to confirm.

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.
