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.

    Sad to hear this movie is dull. Had the chance to study the evolution of crime in London, and the Kray twins rise and fall was an absolutely fascinating period. There is so much that could have been drawn upon but sounds like they just decided to list it. In particular, the sexuality angle was so interesting as it led to a number of people questioning and pushing the Kray’s. It was the source of so many times that Ronnie snapped and Reggie had to cover, and people have even theorized that the stigma of being in the closet or being confused fed into the schizophrenic presentation. Such a missed opportunity.
    Great review guys!
