On this episode we look at the best films of the last decade. David Fincher and Ari Aster dominate our lists. A24 is well represented…so much so that we decided to do a separate A24 top ten.
Movies we list: Midsommar, The Social Network, Gravity, Cloud Atlas, Gone Girl, Enemy, Hereditary, Under the Skin, BlackKklansman, The Big Sick, Lady Bird etc etc.
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. One of the worst movies in the history of movies was released in theaters this week and that is “Black or White.” This movie has great talent like Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer in it, looking like they’ve never acted a day in their lives. Director Mike Binder shit the bed on this one and made everyone involved looked foolish.
However one of the 5 or 10 best movies of the year “A Most Violent Year” also came out and saved the weekend. You’ve got the future of Hollywood in in this movie with Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain and David Oyelowo. Let’s not forget about Albert Brooks who is amazing as well. This movie deserved to be nominated for an Oscar.
Then there were two other forgettable movies that came out called “The Loft” and “Project Almanac.”
This weeks Undisputed Classic is Oscar winner “In the Heat of the Night.” We picked this movie because we thought it’d be a movie about race in 1967 since 1) this is the whitest Oscar season in a very long time 2) “Black or White” came out and we didn’t know it’d suck that bad. “In The Heat of the Night” won the Oscar but it’s star Sidney Poitier wasn’t nominated, instead supporting star Rod Steiger was nominated for the lead performance and I believe won. Hollywood is so stupid. This movie is OK, the tv show really sucked and affected my opinion.
1985 – “Heavenly Bodies” came out and it’s a dance competition musical or something like that, but most importantly there are boobs in it.
The Fantastic Four
The Madame Bovery
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week there is only one new movie so we take a look back and celebrate the great movies of 2014.
We each list our top 10 movies of 2014. Among the movies mentioned “Gone Girl,” “Inherent Vice,” “Enemy,” “Under The Skin,” “A Most Violent Year,” “Chef,” “Foxcatcher,” “American Sniper,” “Birdman,” “Selma,” “Boyhood” and several more.
The new movie is Woman in Black 2, but it’s not very good and we don’t get into it until very late in the podcast.
Our Undisputed Classic is Jules and Jim. It seems like a really cool movie. It really affected Sean more than Josh but both of them seemed to enjoy it. It seems to have influenced Quentin Tarantino.
1985 – “Hot Moves,” Tomboy,” and “Defense of Realm”
Woman in Gold
Kill Me 3 Times

This week “Dumb and Dumber To” came out and knocked “Big Hero 6” out of the top spot. We also got the chance to see “Birdman.” Sean also had to watch Kirk Camerson’s “Saving Christmas.” Then we may or may not talk about a movie called “Beyond the Lights.” See I’m writing these notes before we ever recorded the podcast this week, so we will see.
Since we got to see “Birdman” this week we decided to ask, does 1989’s “Batman” hold up?
1984 – Missing in Action, Night of the Comet
A Most Violent Year
The Imitation Game
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast. We watched four new films this week. We start with Kevin Smith’s new film “Tusk.” We’re spilt 2 loving it to 1 not loving it. It’s one of our better conversations. Then there is “The Maze Runner,” “A Walk Among the Tombstones, & “This is Where I Leave You.”
Sticking with the Kevin Smith theme our “Does it Hold Up” film is “Chasing Amy.” It’s one of the best movies I have ever seen yet doesn’t get the credit it deserves.
In 1984 the Academy Award winning film “Amadeus” came out.
