Jake Gyllenhaal is Billy Hope and he’s got it all. World lightweight boxing champion. Incredibly sexy and loving wife (Rachel McAdams), a precocious and smart little girl, a huge mansion. What could possibly go wrong? Well, a lot of stuff and fast. At rock bottom, Billy has got to get his game back and he’s gotta go to an old half-blind trainer (Forest Whitaker) to do it.

Sound cliched? It is, but there’s no denying there is some top level performance stuff going on here.

The Unusual Suspects are in the right corner (Beau, Chris, Ashley, JC, Diva) and Southpaw is in the left. I want a clean review (good luck with that). FIGHT!

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.

    This isn’t the same Billy Hope from White Man Can’t Jump.
