The Critics Are Wrong, Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice is Good


Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. On this 194th episode of the podcast we talk about Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice for the second time. We briefly talk about My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, but then we move onto our third annual March Movie Madness tournament. This year we took sixteen movies, some of which were suggested by the audience and between the three of us decided which movies moved on to the next round. The only requirement was that we had to pick movies we’d never talked about on the podcast before…or at least movies we don’t remember talking about.


The movies were:

Citizen Kane vs Paths of Glory
Swingers vs Gross Pointe Blank
Good Will Hunting vs Punch Drunk Love
LA Confidential vs The Verdict
Fargo vs O’ Brother Where Art Thou
Glengarry Glen Ross vs Hard Candy
Waking Live vs Monsieur Lazhar
The Silence of the Lambs vs Phantasm

Let us know where we messed up.

Minions & The Godfather Part II


On this episode of I Hate Critics we’ve got three new movies: Minions cleaned up this weekend bringing in $120 million. It’s a movie that has been marketed well. Kids love the Minions, but it’s mostly forgettable. They’ve tricked our kids into watching garbage…good for them I guess. The Gallows is as big of a hit as any other movie this weekend. It was made for $100,000 and made $10,000,000. The acting is pretty bad as is the story but more power too them. I’m happy for their success. Self/Less is the movie where Ben Kingsley gets to become Ryan Reynolds and more or less make an action flick that is kind of boring. So it was a pretty weak weekend. Sorry about that.


Our Undisputed Classic is The Godfather Part II. Minions is a prequel about bad guys and so is The Godfather Part II so why not? The Godfather Part II is one of the best movies of all time. It’s a movie I’ve taken for granted. All three of us watched it again last week and if you haven’t seen this movie you really should. It’s brilliant,

In 1985 Silverado and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome were released.

Our trailers this week are:

Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice
Star Wars: The Force Awakens Featurette
Deadpool Leaked Trailer

Top Five 10 Commandments


Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.

This week we get “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” Sean claims this movie contains casual racism while Josh is just truly upset. Ridley Scott is Josh’s guy, “Blade Runner,” “Alien,” are two of his favorite movies and lets not forget about “Thelma and Louise,” “Black Hawk Down,” or even “American Gangster” and “Gladiator.” Ridley misses a lot and “Exodus” is one of those misses.


On a brighter note Chris Rock wrote, directed and starred in “Top Five” which is great. We’re all big Chris Rock fans, his movies aren’t always great, but it’s never for a lack of effort. “Top Five” is the best Chris Rock movie. Normally it’s the acting that holds a Chris Rock movie down, but bringing Rosario Dawson on board mixed with several A, B and C list cameos the acting is at worst not a distraction, but I’d argue that it’s top notch.

Then Al Pacino returns to form

Our Undisputed Classic this week is “The Ten Commandments.” This 3 hour plus snooze fest is good, but it’s kind of boring and desperately needs a reboot….by somebody like Ridley Scott…

1984 – Starman, Dune


Hot Tub Time Machine 2
