Eli Roth (!…I know, right?) directs this children’s book adaptation about a young orphan boy who goes to live in a creepy and seriously weird old house with his uncle (Jack Black) and his friend Florence (Cate Blanchette). Both are good wizards who wouldn’t be out of place as instructors at Hogwarts, trying to figure out where a mysterious and ominous counting-down clock is hidden in the house once owned by a nefarious warlock (Kyle MacLachlan). Meanwhile, the kid deals with being a weirdo himself, learning magic, and trying not to screw up everything because he wants so desperately to be liked at school. There are a lot of eyes on this one and everyone wants to know, is it gonna be good? Chris, Taylor, Zach, and Ben are here to tell you.

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.
