Miles Teller plays boxer Vinnie Paz, a title holder who after his big victory ended up hitting rock bottom (for once in a boxing movie, through no fault of his own). Director Ben Younger’s film spends its time less as a traditional boxing film structure and more as a ‘healing through sheer determination” one. But is it any good? Chris, Kyle and JC give it to you on the chin.
Written by Chris Cox
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.
