The year was 2007. Their names were Chase Whale and Rusty Gordon (co-founder), two guys who love to discuss, and argue, all things film. Chase was soon hit with the idea of a movie website centered around reviews done in video. Rusty responded simply with “gordon and the whale dot com.”
With that, the site was launched that same year on October 12th, 2007. Now in 2012, we are still going strong giving you the latest news and reviews, sponsoring advance screenings, throwing movie parties, attending film festivals, and interviewing today’s top creative minds in the film industry.
In August 2011, EIC Chase Whale, Senior Editor James Wallace, and Managing Editor Kate Erbland decided to shut down the site (read about that HERE).
We had a Whale of a time.
