Highly Suspect Reviews: How To Talk to Girls at Parties

A teenage punk (Alex Sharp) from the streets of Croydon England and his friends end up at a party populated by some serious weirdos in colored vinyl outfits but also the girl of our young protagonist’s dreams (Elle Fanning). Unfortunately, she and her vinyl-coated friends are all aliens who aren’t planning on sticking around for long. Add in a punk priestess played to the hilt by Nicole Kidman, a cast full of funny English tv stalwarts (Matt Lucas, Ruth Wilson, Joanna Scanlan), and the directorial and very musical stylings of John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and you have a movie that Chris and Harris are, quite frankly, SHOCKED that apparently, most critics didn’t adore as much as they did. Oh yeah, and it’s based on a Neil Gaiman short story. Check out their review here.

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.
