Is it mo-cap or mo-money? It does seem a little unnecessary doing ANOTHER photo-realistic CG mixed with live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book so short a time after Jon Favreau’s 2016 film. But here we are. Because goddammit, Andy Serkis is going to PROVE TO YOU ALL that he is A: the master of mo-cap and B: mo-cap acting is 100% the acting talent and CG artistry has nothing to do with the quality of it. So how did we feel about it? Well, I’ll tell you this…the only thing Serkis proves is how wrong he is about point B. Listen to Chris, Frank, Marco, and Ben 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.
