Highly Suspect Reviews: Hail, Caesar!

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but this Coen brothers’ movie needed more Channing Tatum. There, now my Charming Potato journey is complete. Their latest film features the tater in a relatively small, but unforgettable role, but that’s true of most of the starpower attached to the movie (and there is a lot). The story, such as it is, follows Josh Brolin who plays a ‘fixer” for a major Hollywood studio. He keeps stars from getting in trouble, makes sure the pictures come in on time…whatever needs doing on the spot, basically. But when the star (George Clooney) of their latest high profile pic is kidnapped by communists, he’s got to find him get get him back on set before the pic starts shooting again.

As per usual, the Coen’s output shows a divisive reaction and that was very true with our group of reviewers who ran the gamut of reactions. Said reviewers were: Chris, Elliott, Kat, Sarah, Richard and Jenny.

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.
