Screener Squad: The English

The English Series Review


At the turn of the century the American plains were up for grabs and the hands that prevailed belonged to the quick and the the conniving. Cornella Locke (Emily Blunt) is an Englishwoman who has come to America seeking revenge for the death of her son. With plenty of clues and a fist full of dollars, this English rose is quick on the draw with a sharp tongue and intellect, and cuts down any rough rider that thinks her a damsel in distress. Eli Whipp (Chaske Spencer) is a Native American veteran of the civil war who is on his way to claim land he is owed for his service, despite being told that the white men will not honor the deal. Eli has a chance meeting with Cornelia and the two companions become star crossed lovers in the middle of a land and cattle conspiracy involving disease, double crosses, and the code of the west.  Bradly, Marco, and Melina settle round the campfire and discuss the tropes and cliches that still mosey on through these parts, compare the stylistic choices of the charismatic villains and larger than life heroes of this decades-spanning western epic, then settle things with the devil with a dance in the pale moonlight.

Bradly Martin (Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize, Breakfast Pub)

Bradly Martin was born in the united states and grew up on a healthy diet of sports, films, and books. A rather shy lad who kept to himself, Bradly soon discovered the best way to know a person was to know what people liked. Throughout the years Bradly became a fan of many things and a fanatic of none. From Doctor Dre, to Doctor Strange and the who’s who of Whos. From Playstation to the Dreamcast and Marvel to DC. From LeBron James to James Bond and Lord of the Rings to Lord Palmerston (or Pitt the Elder if you agree with Wade Boggs) and is a huge fan of dad jokes and randomly obscure Simpsons references. Armed with a vast knowledge of comics, films, and pop culture. Bradly traveled the world making friends and sharing takes. As a young man Bradly married the love of his life young and grew older every year with each new child brought into the brood. If trends continue, Scientists predict that .2% of Canada (where Bradly and family reside) will be populated by Bradly’s children by the year 2029. You can hear him leading and listening to his favorite critics on the Screener Squad and Eye on the prize and maybe even provide some comments of his own.



Marco Noyola (Digital Noise, Highly Suspect Reviews, Screener Squad, Audio Editor)

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.

Melina Eames (Screener Squad)

Melina first discovered that she carried the nerd gene at the tender age of four following her exposure to a little film called A New Hope. In the twenty-some years that followed, Melina continued to grow into her geek identity through the discovery of Batman, Mst3k, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings and The Mandalorian. But perhaps her most significant discovery came at the age of fourteen when a night of YouTube mining led her to the review site of Melina became a devoted follower whose fandom did not end with the site’s demise. By then, it had worked its dark magic and left her with a love and appreciation for film criticism that she has yet to shrug.
