Highly Suspect Reviews: Eddie the Eagle

5 Submitted by on Thu, 25 February 2016, 09:59

Take one Taron Egerton with questionable sanity and facial rictus, add wildly miscast Hugh Jackman as drunk former champion with heart of gold, mix well into olympics fever, and you get this grandma-pleaser of a film, Eddie the Eagle. Which isn’t to say it’s bad, per say, (at least, some of us weren’t saying that). It’s not gonna fill you with many surprises though. However, our REVIEW might as Chris, Herman, JC and Sarah kinda dogpile on Richard a bit (not for a difference of opinion, but just for being so damn British).

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.

    Well, as for what your demographics are, I’m in my mid 30’s.

    I’m also with Richard, Chris, and JC in that I had no fucking clue what those movies Herman mentioned are. I googled Johnny Tsunami and the others and yeah I’ve definitely never heard of them, but they sound awful.

    • Mr. Plainview, the mid to late 1990s and I would like to introduce you to the world of made-for-television Disney movies.

    I actually know all the movies Herman was talking about. What’s more funny is the gamut of reviews from “Good” to “It’s just a movie” to “I walked out.”

  • El Pollo Guerrera

    The way Richard explains it, it sounds like a family-friendly version of “The Full Monty” (without the financial desperation).

    you wankers! he’s a legend and a thoroughly decent chap
