BODIES BODIES BODIES MOVIE REVIEW
Sophie (Amandla Stenberg) and Bee (Maria Bakalova) are in a new relationship and it’s going at a whirlwind pace. Nonetheless, anyone who has ever been thrown into a whole new group of people who all have a long and complicated history with your significant other knows how tense that can be. Sophie takes Bee with her out to a huge mansion in the middle of nowhere where her best friend David (Pete Davidson) lives. A hurricane party (that’s a thing?) is the reason for the gathering and right off the bat, it becomes clear that maybe Sophie and Bee are not ENTIRELY welcome. When someone turns up dead in the middle of a power outage due to the storm, the fingers start pointing, more bodies start dropping, and everyone’s a suspect. This A24 take on the slasher film features some strong performances and dialogue but Wright and Chris didn’t see entirely eye-to-eye on the final result. Check out their review here.

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.
Wright Sulek (Screener Squad, Digital Noise, Highly Suspect Reviews, Trash in the Can, Audio Editor)
Wright hails from the northern suburbs of Dallas, Texas. His passion for filmmaking brought him to Austin to study and make movies. Since then he’s had his hand in acting, writing, and directing his own short films with numerous like-minded film geeks he’s met along his journey. His newest interest has brought him into the podcasting world. He co-hosted a few different movie related podcasts such as ‘And Now This’ and ‘The Match Cut’. He currently co-hosts with longtime friend, Eric Samaniego, where they talk shop about the grimiest, trashiest, lost gems of movies on their show, ‘Trash in the Can’. Wright also guests and hosts reviews on Screener Squad and Highly Suspect Reviews as well as co-hosts Digital Noise with Chris Cox.
