Welcome to The I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we talk “The Hobbit,” “A Madea Christmas” and “Nebraska.” We mostly talk about “The Hobbit” though. Let me rephrase that, Josh and Sean mostly talk about “The Hobbit” while I take a nap and cough into the microphone from time to time. Also “Nebraska” is really good, but you’re probably not going to see it.
Our Undisputed Classic was “African Queen.” Humphrey Bogart won a life time achievement award for this film. If any self respected actor gave the performance Mr. Bogart gave, they’d be run out of town. We’ve all seen it. I struggle to describe this movie when Josh swoops in to save the day.
In 1983 “Silkwood” and “Gorky Park” came out. If you’re going to go back and check out some movies from 1983, these are two great movies to start with. “Silkwood” is one of Meryl Streep’s more underestimated performances. It’s a heart breaking movie. “Gorky Park” has a terrible name, but it’s good too. On a side note Bon Jovi took a band named Gorky Park under their wing in the late 80’s but that didn’t last long.
Our Trailers are:
“Edge of Tomorrow”
“The Knights of Badassdom”
“The Fantastic Fear of Everything”
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we mourn the loss of Paul Walker by asking our in house critic how he mourns actors he’s said horrible things about. We then jump into the Nelson Mandela bio pic and talk Wonder Woman before discussing how they move forward with “Fast 7.”
All three of us managed to get to the theater for “Out of the Furnace” and we all felt upbeat when the flick was over. It’s one of the most grim, bleak, depressing movies out there, but it’s compelling. I can’t describe how good it was like Sean can so turn the podcast on and listen. There are no spoilers in this segment, but when we talk “All is Lost” we do spoil it however it sounds like the ending is open to interpretation.
Our Undisputed Classic was “Duck Soup” from The Marx Brothers. Josh and Sean giggled like school girls talking about this one. I felt left out, so I just thought about how all the character’s in this movie had the same name as the characters in “The Devil’s Rejects,” which was something Roger Ebert loved.
In 1983 “Scarface” and “Sudden Impact” came out. We tear into “Scarface” as none of us like that movie. I think it’s long and boring, Josh doesn’t like that it’s hanging up on the walls of dumbasses and Sean doesn’t understand why so many people worship this movie, he dies in a pile of cocaine and wants to sleep with his sister. Now “Sudden Impact?” Great fun film.
Our Trailers are:
“The Amazing Spiderman 2”
