Chris Cox | One of Us - Part 5
About: Chris Cox

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.

But what you do get is more of that party-discussion format you’ve come to enjoy where we talk about what we think is going to happen in Avengers Continue Reading...

A television series set thirty years after the original The Karate Kid? Produced by and distributed through YouTube Red? Written and directed by the teams behind Harold and Kumar and Hot Tub Time Machine? None of this sounds like a recipe for success. So how in the world did Cobra Kai end up being so nuanced and emotionally involving? Well, Continue Reading...

In a gender-swapped remake of the 1987 Kurt Russell/Goldie Hawn film, now we see Anna Faris as a working-class mom who convinces snobby prick Eugenio Derbez, after he falls OVERBOARD his yacht and becomes an amnesiac, that they are actually married. Which normally wouldn’t work (or, you know, ever) but Derbez’s wife is more than happy to let that particular Continue Reading...
