Never Live It Down: Carlyle's infamous " Communist Lion King " rant.

He still falls victim to jokes about this every now and then. Korey threw a chair! And he had sex with a vacuum cleaner. And he worked on Space Jam! Cyrus also gave an okay review for Southland Tales. Say it with me now: As with other popular movie critics, the reviewers at Spill receive this every now and then for certain movie reviews.
Even that is nothing compared to Leon giving Inception a low Matinee. As Carlyle said when he heard about it: This also works both ways. As the crew has actually received hate for liking certain films. Seeing as how it's a review site with mostly four guys who come from different walks of life and each have radically different views on just about everything, it was only natural that this trope would come up.
Korey, and Leon would always have trouble empathizing with films that dealt with "white people problems". See their review of Into the Wildwhere the two aforementioned critics found the main lead to be far less sympathetic then Carlyle, and Cyrus did. The show featured a cast of rotating members discussing and reviewing movies, along with other topics. Spliced in between these discussions were skits that parodied popular movies and current topics.

After the site's shutdown, Coleman, accompanied by his good friend Martin Thomas formally known as Leonformed a new site entitled Doubletoasted.
Cyrus - voiced by Chris Cox Seemingly the most nerdy and overly cynical of the group and often very eager to express his insecurities on air, his character is fond of pop culture, puns and internet ephemera, such as LOL Cats and memes. Although the most professional and reliable member of the Spill crew, he is an opinionated critic with an unbridled love for Joss Whedon, a tendency to drink, and is a parody of an atheist critical of organized religion though he has stated that his real-life counterpart is agnostic.
Leon - voiced by Martin Thomas The eldest and most level-headed critic of the group, his involvement became very limited since the later restructuring of Spill. His character shares Cyrus' love of comic books and pop culture. A short stint of spoiling movies resulted in him earning the supervillain moniker "The Spoiler.

On May 23,Salisbury was laid off of Spill. Review system[ edit ] Each Spill crew member gives their own rating, so it is not uncommon for there to be more than one rating stated for a film. At the end of each review, the critics give their ratings.
A cumulative score is then posted on the site itself. The rating system is based on means of seeing the movie, from most to least expensive and engrossing, except the highest and lowest ratings. Each film is judged on its own merits, taking into account a multitude of factors including but not limited to its perceived audience, the time of year it is released, its marketing campaign, etc.
