Richard and Marco make their way through a weird assortment of titles this week verging from Oscar bait to horror movies you wouldn’t want your worst enemy to have to sit through. I’m not naming names; that’s Richard and Marco’s job. But I will tell you that the giveaway this week, Estranged, wasn’t even on any of our radar, and it also ended up being both of their Pick of the Week to boot, so time for new discoveries kids!

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.
