Guillermo Del Toro’s latest dark, romantic, adult fairy tale is being hailed by many as one of his best films. We certainly see the appeal of watching a romance between a mute cleaning woman (Sally Hawkins) and The Creature from the Black Lagoon (Doug Jones) being menaced by a slowly rotting Michael Shannon. I mean, we do now that we’ve seen the movie. Listen to Marco, Michael, Zach, JC, and Chris give their review.

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.
