Despite the lack of Fox’s confidence in Wes Anderson’s latest film, Isle of Dogs, we all jumped up to be on the list to see this new critically acclaimed animated work from the guy who did this sort of thing to great results in 2009 with The Fantastic Mr Fox. This, time, the story isn’t adapted from a previously existing work, but is all Anderson.

In Japan, a ruthless mayor banishes all dogs to a trash island because of a ‘canine flu’. A young boy, the nephew to the mayor, goes to the island to rescue his dog only to find him missing but with the help of a group of dogs (voiced by Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, Ed Norton, and Jeff Goldblum) he goes on an adventure to find his best friend. And we go on an adventure to convince you to go see this movie, as Chris, Beau, Marco, Zach, and Miguel come in with high marks indeed.

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.
