This week we’ve got three new movies. We kick things off with Hotel Transylvania. We’re three grown men so our opinion doesn’t really matter but at some point Sean indirectly calls our kids dumb. The Intern ends up being a pretty solid Nancy Meyers movie, possibly her best. Eli Roth lets us down with The Green Inferno. I wanted it to be good and theres a lot of potential here but the execution was just off.
Our Top Five this week is our favorite messed up movies which include A Serbian Film, Salo: 120 Days of Sodom, Saw, Requiem For a Dream, Irreversible, Oldboy, I Spit on Your Grave, A Clockwork Orange, and more
Our Undisputed Classic is Cannibal Holocaust. It’s a movie all three of us ended up liking. It’s shocking but it’s well made and truly is terrifying.
In 1985 we take on Maxie, Invasion USA and Code Named Emerald
Our trailers this week are:
The Big Short
Welcome to The 1st Episode in 2014 of I Hate Critics. We’ve got a whole movie to talk about in “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones.” The movie should suck, but Sean found the movie much better than he thought it would be. We do what we can to stretch this episode out, so we took a list of the top 10 Sci Fi movies as chosen by scientists…then we crap all over how lazy this list is.
Our undisputed classic is Martin Scorsese’s “Taxi Driver.” We spend most of the podcast talking about this film. “Taxi Driver” is one of the best films of all time and is a must see for all film buffs.
1984 is one of the best years for movies and it got kicked off with a bang with the hit “Angel.” An honor’s student by day, a prostitute by night…sounds good right?
Our trailers this week are:
“The Raid 2: Berandal”
“The Amazing Spiderman 2”
Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. This week in movie will go down in movie history as one of the more memorable weeks because I can’t even remember what came out. “Ender’s Game,” the old guy movie and the turkey movie. “Last Vegas” and what was it called, oh yeah “Free Birds.” In short “Ender’s Game” was surprisingly decent and “Last Vegas” and “Free Birds” were pretty bland despite a great cast in “Last Vegas” and a decent director in “Free Birds.”
Josh able from the “Film Fan Perspective” wasn’t able to join us this week.
The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Despite being a big Kubrick fan I never saw is masterpiece “2001.” I’m not a big fan of abstract movies and “2001” is definitely that, but I was drawn in and it made me ask questions, it made me want to know more and it was beautiful.
In movie news Emile Hirsch has signed on to play John Belushi. We took this news bashed Shia Labeouf for no real reason. We talk about the possible “ExpendaBelles” movie with Cameron Diaz, Meryl Streep, and MIlla Jovovich. Sean insists it’s a joke. Finally we talk about the new “Star Wars” films and the rumor that Harrison Ford has signed on.
This week in 1983 we have the Chevy Chase classic “Deal of the Century.” What? You don’t remember this movie? Ok.
Check out our trailers this week: “Catching Fire,” “Xmen: Days of Futures Past,” “47 Ronin,” “Beyond Outrage,” “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Open Grave,” and “Labor Day.”
