Get yourself ready to have that interminable theme song get stuck in your head again. What theme song, you ask? Well, Disney’s Christopher Robin is a Winnie The Pooh movie being tricksy. Picture the human boy from those stories, the titular character here, now all grown up into Ewan McGregor and married to Haley Atwell with a kid of his own and a crap job. He’s forgotten all about his old friends in the 100-acre woods, or at least, dismissed them as flights of fancy…until one shows up in his home demanding he go with him back to the woods to find his friends who have all mysteriously disappeared. I mean, this thing could have easily have swerved into horror movie territory, right? But no, this is a kids/nostalgic adults movie and the folks you have to listen to talking about it are Chris, Shak, and Frank.

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.
