*Sounds of alarms blaring, people running about in a panic, explosions in distance*


And it’s gonna be alllllllright. Chris Herman leads Frank, Jon, and Kyle in this review of the film that plays out the big-bada-boom that was the Deepwater Horizon oil rig and the subsequent biological disaster that followed. Not even Mark Wahlberg and Kurt Russell can save the day this time. But they might save the movie. Check out the 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.

    Would you like a lemon twist with your hater-ade, Kyle?

    Obviously I can’t judge the movie itself until I see it, but it did feel like you were coming in with a little baggage. Again, it’s a subjective opinion, so I can’t complain much.

    On the other hand, it doesn’t affect me too much because I still really want to watch this movie!

    Question for Herman: I actually think Peter Berg’s a really talented guy (besides Battleship, which just felt like him doing Universal a favor in order to get Lone Survivor made). Where would you rank this in his filmography?

    • I think it’s just as good as Lone Survivor. The Rundown is still my favorite Peter Berg film though.

      • Chris Ayres

        Awesome, I loved Lone Survivor. I’m gonna see it this weekend.

    When he has a topic he’s passionate about Berg is on point. Seeing the people walking out of Lone Survivor (I had to escort a Vietnam vet out because he broke down), Friday Night Lights and even The Kingdom, he has very proficient skills. I think his only hickup so far was Battleship.
