David Oyelowo plays Harold, a businessman who works for a company that has developed a ‘weed pill’. When he sent on a trip to Mexico to deal with the manufacturing arm, he gets kidnapped by the cartel who have issues with his company, who then sends an offbeat professional (Sharlto Copley) to rescue him. Wackiness ensues. And, from what Beau, Lara, and Michael are saying here in the review, is pretty great wackiness indeed. Also starring Joel Edgerton, Amanda Seyfried, Charlize Theron, and Thandie Newton, this sounds like it could be one of those March surprise sleeper hits. Listen to their review and decide for yourself.

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.
