Why did you climb that mountain? Because you must want to die. We couldn’t think of another good reason, which should clue you in that if you’re a mountain climbing fan you might want to skip this Highly Suspect Review of the new film Everest. Even with great actors like Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes and Jason Clarke trying to ascend the legendary peak, we just couldn’t get past the NOPENOPENOPE part of our reactions. Which, of course, doesn’t mean that the film itself was bad. Or good. Or…oh, hell just listen to Chris, Beau and Joe do the review.

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.

    So is this a Oscar movie?

      Mmmmmaybe. I think Brolin does some great work – but nothing outside his wheelhouse. John Hawkes is – as he always is – amazing. and Jason Clarke may wash away some of the stigma Terminator left him with. But I seriously doubt it’ll pick up much in the way of noms. Maybe Hawkes – fingers crossed. i’d love to see that guy pick up a statue.

      Probably won’t be nominated for anything aside from special effects, and will lose.

    So for better or for worst, the Oscar season begins.
