HAWKEYE SERIES REVIEW
It’s Christmas time in NYC and all poor Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) wants to do is get home and be with his wife and kids. But here comes this teenager, Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), to mess up his holiday plans. She’s a very young woman who during the process of trying to stop Russian thugs from stealing stuff from an expensive auction that her mother (Vera Farmiga) and soon to be step-father (Tony Dalton) are putting on, ends up putting on Hawkeye’s old Ronin suit (think back to when he went a bit cuckoo during the blip and was out killing bad guys). Unfortunately, the head of said Russian thugs (Alaqua Cox) saw Ronin kill her father, she’s kinda a badass, and she wants Ronin (who now she thinks is Kate) dead. Oh, and remember that cut scene from the end of Black Widow? Now, Yelena (Florence Pugh) is showing up out to kill Hawky as well. Things are tough on our former Avenger but at least his young protege has some pretty mad skills of her own. Chris, Marco, and Beau take a look at this newest Disney Plus series and see if it hits the bullseye.

Christopher Lawrence Cox (Founder, Da Boss)
Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas in 1992 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 community of critics. While Brian eventually followed his heart to a new family, Chris continues on with a cast of colorful folks from all over the country (and a few others). You can also check out Chris in his videocast, along with Martin Thomas and Danni Danger, that One Of Us does with our friends at Bell of Lost Souls: Crossover Event. He also regularly guests on the video game website Rage Select. Follow Chris on Twitter and Facebook and check out his Amazon Wish List.

By day, Marco is a mild-mannered office worker, but by night he is a mild-mannered movie watcher. He does other mild-mannered stuff too.

Beau Paul (Highly Suspect Reviews, The Original Gentlemen, Screener Squad)
Beau Paul is an Austin native, an actor, and a writer. Sometimes all at once! Previously he has attempted to be an internet entertainer (the funny ha-ha kind, not the naked moneymaking kind) at Spill.com, and now here on OneOfUs.net. You can read his pithy witticisms and the retweeted material of funnier, cleverer people on Twitter or Facebook, and can buy him stuff on Amazon.
