I said to myself, “Chris, go ahead and ask Harris and Cat if they want to go see and review this movie and if they say no, you’re off the hook, and you don’t have to go see it. This is short notice, they probably can’t do it”. And Harris and Cat said, “Yes”, or I believe Cat’s exact words were, “I am so in it’s not even funny”.

You see, “Jem and the Holograms” was originally a 80’s animated tv series and it had its fanbase. Cat was one of the members of that fanbase. I never would have heard of this thing if not for her. Dammit, Cat. Anyway, this theatrical live action adaptation is, as she says, “In name only”, and we proceed to thrash this thing down to an inch of its life. Come share our pain, won’t you?

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.
