Highly Suspect Reviews: The Grinch

This time it’s Illumination Entertainment’s turn (you know, that company that keeps torturing us with those nattering little yellow pill-shaped creatures) to adapt Dr. Seuss’ Christmas classic, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. And now we officially owe Jim Carrey an apology. Sigh. This time Benedict Cumberbatch takes over the role of the now more laissez-faire titular green guy and Chris, Ben, and Alan take over the roles of the critics who had to sit through this damn thing so they could review it. The least you could do to justify their pain is listen to them agonize over it.

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.
