Leo grabs again for that brass ring (or gold statue, as it were) with his desperate and downright uncomfortable looking performance in The Revenant. Playing a trapper who ends up mauled by a bear and then left for dead by Tom Hardy, he crawls and gradually heals himself across the wilderness of early America with one thing on his mind…REVENGA! Chris, Beau, Sarah, Richard and JC give their thoughts.

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.

    Thought it was great! could have watched another hour! opening scene and bear attack were intense as fuck! The best film Terrence Malick never made! also pissed on Hateful 8 which opened strong but fell flat. 9/10 claws through the windpipe

    I know none of you actually disliked the movie, but I think you missed the ball overall.

    Did you actually watch the film? They made Dicaprio’s teeth yellow, with bits in them, and just generally very bad looking…
