Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week the two big movies out our “22 Jump Street” and “How to Train Your Dragon 2.” Surprisingly the juvenile comedy kicked the dragons ass at the box office. There wasn’t a whole lot going on this week so we decided to choose in draft form our movie team using Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill movies. The results are as follows
This is the End
The Lego Movie
Wolf of Wall Street
How to Train Your Dragon
War of the Worlds
The 40 Year Old Virgin
I Heart Huckabees
Our Undisputed Classic is the highly overrated “Touch of Evil.” Sean is the most forgiving but that’s only because he’s a film critic and he has to pretend to be (Sean doesn’t read these so I can say whatever I want)
Nothing of note came out in 1984
Dumb and Dumber To
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Our March Movie Madness is finally over and “Almost Famous” is your winner. Thanks to all of you who voted. This week we talk “Draft Day,” “Oculus” and “Under the Skin.” Sean said “Draft Day” was enjoyable. As a group we ranked the top five Kevin Costner films. Both Sean and Josh caught “Oculus” from WWE films. I saw that it was from WWE films and figured out that it’d be a waste of time… I was right.
Josh, Sean and I drove 3 hours to Evanston, IL just to see Scarlett Johansson get naked…I mean her amazing film “Under the Skin.” I’m completely joking about the only going to see her naked. This movie looked amazing and we really wanted to see it and it was amazing. It’ll stick with me for a long time.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Memento.” Josh wonders if Christopher Nolan is the best working director out there. I kind of feel like Nolan and David Fincher are interchangeable. I’m kind of partial to David O. Russell right now. That said “Memento” is one amazing film.
In 1984 “Iceman” and “Friday the 13th IV” came out. Josh has a soft spot for “Iceman,” but nobody really cares about “Friday the 13th IV”
Trailers this week:
22 Jump Street
Wish I Were Here
Only Lovers Left Alive
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we talk about “Anchorman 2,” “American Hustle,” “Saving Mr. Banks” and for whatever reason “Walking with Dinosaurs.” “Anchorman 2” is one of the great comedies of 2013. “American Hustle” is one of the great movies of 2013. Sean ranks it very high and I (Bob) have it topping my list. Amy Adams deserves an Oscar, but the stupid Critics Choice didn’t even nominate her. Oh well. See this movie.
“Saving Mr. Banks” is a great movie, but if you are bothered by historical accuracy is a movie you should steer clear of, otherwise enjoy Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson. “Walking with Dinosaurs” might be the worst movie of 2013…keep in mind Sean hasn’t seen “Canyons.”
Our Undisputed Classic was “Lawrence of Arabia.” With the passing of Peter O’Toole we thought it only be appropriate to talk about his best work and arguably one of the best acting performances of all time. Josh is very passionate about the film and Sean said there really is something to seeing it on a big screen that brings it to life. The verdict? It’s an undisputed classic.
In 1983 Joel Schumacher gave us “D.C. Cab” starring Adam Baldwin and Mr. T. Is there anything else I need to say?
Our Trailers are:
“The Polar Bear Movie”
“Welcome to Yesterday”
“22 Jump Street”
“The Grand Budapest Hotel”
