In this revisionist bro-mance, James McAvoy plays the titular Victor, filled with genius and madness, spitting his passionate lines into the camera while Daniel Radcliffe is a (eventually) much cuter and quieter Igor than we’re traditionally accustomed to. Together, in an extended prequel type of fashion, they work (somewhat reluctantly on Igor’s part) towards the modern Prometheus. But does this version of Mary Shelley’s classic tale give it new life? Chris, Sarah, JC and Diva tell the tale.

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.
