It’s queen versus queen in the ultimate royal rumble deathmatch! In this corner is the sickly but powerful Queen Elizabeth (Margot Robbie) and in this corner is the challenger, the new young upstart with a claim to the throne of England, currently Queen of Scotland, Mary (Saoirse Ronan). Of course, that’s the movie we THOUGHT we were getting. But this is totally Mary’s film as she navigates the complicated waters of dealing with a paranoid England and strife at home as many are not happy about a Catholic sitting on a throne in a largely Protestant country. Especially a wacky-bearded dogmatic David Tennant. But what did we think of it? Listen to Chris, Ben, Taylor, Zach, Alan, Frank, and Marco to find out.

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.
