Universal wants a big honkin’ slice of the shared universe movie franchise pie and they’re launching their effort, using their classic movie monsters, and with the help of blockbuster stalwart Tom Cruise, with The Mummy, the ostensibly first in their Dark Universe. Tom is an…archeological thief? Whatever. Anyway, he and Annabelle Wallis (with the help/hindrance of Jake Johnson) have to do with a new source of evil from the past (Sofia Boutella) who wants to make Tom into her new Set and take over the world. Well, that will just not do! So how does this rate? Ask your crew of Usual Suspects: Chris, Beau, Richard, Frank, and Patience.

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.
