Oscar Isaac dons the heavy blue makeup to become Apocalypse, the first mutant who wants to recreate the world into one where only the strong survive. Standing in his way are all the usual suspects (yes, I made a Bryan Singer pun) from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, and a lot of new ones…or at least, new young versions of heroes the franchise started out with. But…does it work? Well, we’ve got very mixed feelings about that. Listen to Herman, Richard, Elliott, and Chris express them.

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.
