Legendary Hollywood screenwriter Paul Schraeder writes and directs this film about Toller (Ethan Hawke), a priest overseeing a very small church kept going, despite minimum attendance, largely because of its long history. His own struggles with the death of his son who he encouraged to enlist in the military (as the family tradition dictated) is sidelined by a young parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) who comes to him about her husband, a radical environmentalist who wants her to have an abortion and who she is afraid might be getting into dangerous stuff. Frank and Chris take a look at this acclaimed film but they have VERY different opinions about it. Check it out 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.
