Tom Hanks the lead in a film directed by Steven Spielberg and written by the Coen Brothers…yeah, sounds like that would probably suck, right? NO OF COURSE IT’S NOT GOING TO SUCK YOU FOOLS. Which is why I was a bit baffled I couldn’t drum up more interest with our critic group in going to see it. This true story with Tom playing the guy who negotiated the release of a American spy for a Russian one during the Cold War is just as good as it’s pedigree suggests. Listen to Chris, Elliot and JC cast shame on the others for not showing up in their 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.
