Highly Suspect Reviews: Stan & Ollie

Two of the most beloved stars of the post-vaudeville/early film comedy scene, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, are given the ‘final days’ biopic treatment here by Jon S. Baird starring respectively Steve Coogan and (the already nominated) John C. Reilly. Largely looking at their final European tour, Stan & Ollie is certainly bittersweet and melancholy but in a good way. Listen to Chris, Ben, Marco, and Alan give their review.

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.
