Chris Herman and JC got to see this remake of the Best Foreign Language Film award winner, now starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Julia Roberts, and Nicole Kidman and they can’t quite come to consensus. So Chris (cox) is there to referee. Listen up!

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.

    I don’t really get why they adapted the original. I’m usually not bothered by these remakes of foreign films, since they’re usually not too culturally specific, but I think equating, or adapting Argentina’s Dirty War to 9/11 and the war on terror seems a bit… reaching? Like the writer/director was just reaching into the past for something culturally loaded despite being wildly different.

    Either way I didn’t like the original so I doubt I’d like this 😛
