Director Fede Álvarez sits in the director’s chair for this latest attempt to make that Dragon Tattooed girl Lisbeth Salander as big in America as she is in Sweden. They have strangely decided to skip past the next two books in the original trilogy (and the only ones actually written by the late author Stieg Larsson) to the first of the cash-grab book sequels written by David Lagercrantz. And oh boy, is it ever a cash-grab. Chris and Aaron aren’t exactly sure who should get the blame here but there is lots to discuss and have some fun talking about so you should check out their review right here.

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.
