Woody Allen’s latest features a period-piece bad marriage between Kate Winslet and Jim Belushi (yes, Jim Belushi) who live on Coney Island and have their lives shaken up when Jim’s long-estranged daughter (Juno Temple) shows up on the run from her mobster husband. Also, Winslet is cheating on Jim with a young aspiring writer (Justin Timberlake) and the daughter complicates that as well. You know what? Whatever. This review is about hearing the chaos erupt between Chris, Elliott, and Johnny. Strong feelings were elicited and I have a feeling the opinions expressed will cause some amount of consternation. Oh well. Have at us.

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.
