I LOVE MY DAD MOVIE REVIEW
Patton Oswalt plays Chuck, a loser who can’t even get his own kid to talk to him anymore. It very well may even be his history of being a deadbeat dad that leads to the son Franklin (James Morosini) being dangerously unstable with self-harm. For his own mental health, he blocks his father off of his social media, his phone, on everything. Chuck only has his son to make him feel any self-worth (and maybe a little bit his boss/sorta girlfriend played by Rachel Dratch). After meeting a cute young lady (Claudia Sulewski) at his local diner, he takes her photos and creates a new identity for himself online, only so he can feel like he’s still somewhat in his son’s life. Unfortunately, Franklin falls hard for her/him and Chuck realizes that he’s catfished his own son….so now what? Chris and Wright look at this squirm-worthy dramedy and largely have nothing but good things to say about it. 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.
