One of this year’s films that has had the widest range of reactions seems to be “Godzilla”. We rarely so consistently see LOVE IT and HATE IT passionate reactions on the web over a single film. So, quick to throw virtual kerosene on any given internet flame, we thought: why not get two of our buds who represent the poles of opinion, put ’em in a room together, and let them go at it?

Thought became action. We got Godzilla comic book artist Matt Frank in the LOVE IT corner, and The Original Gentlemen‘s own Martin Thomas in the HATE IT corner, and rung the bell. Get a ringside seat for this battle…

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.
