EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE MOVIE REVIEW
Oh my god, how do you even get started describing a movie like this one? At least without spoiling any of the wonderful surprises in store? Fortunately, there are so many surprises and weirdnesses and delights to be found in Everything Everywhere All At Once, the latest film by the two Daniels (Swiss Army Man) that there’s no way we could mess it all up for you even if that was what we were trying to do. The story follows Evelyn (Michelle Yeoh) and her husband Waymond (Ke Huy Quan) who run a laundromat, are having marital difficulties, and have to go deal with an unforgiving tax woman (Jamie Lee Curtis) that wants to take away their business. When suddenly, something happens that plunges Evelyn into a war across the multiverses and a battle for the heart of her own family. Every version of her family. With influences from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind to Kung-Fu Hustle and probably everything in between, Wright and Chris downright thought this was a work of insane genius that they look forward to rewatching many times. Its brand of madness is not going to be everyone’s cup of LSD, but it sure was ours.

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.
