Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast Bonus episode. Rest in Peace to Robin Williams. It really is quite amazing the impact Robin Williams had on the world. There are few people in this world that had that affect on everybody.
“Expendables 3” came out this week and was a dud. While most critics agree that it is a bad movie, it still sucks that it leaked out online several weeks before the release causing the movie to fail miserably. It’s disappionting. Also out this week was “The Giver” which also bombed. Sean was ok with the movie while Josh hated it. “Let’s Be Cops” was the biggest new release of the week and “What If” was probably the best new release of the week.
Our “Undisputed Classic” is “Singing in the Rain.” I wasn’t all excited about checking this movie out, but I was pleasantly surprised by how watchable this movie it. I was expecting cheese and an out of date movie, but it was very interesting.
In 1984 Clint Eastwood’s “Tight Rope.” Also released was “The Woman in Red” & “Dreamscape.”

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Tribute to Jean Claude Van Damme Podcast. This week “Catching Fire” won the box office, but Frozen did great and could even get nominated for an Oscar, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad and Idina Menzel perform some of the best songs in a Disney movie since “The Lion King.” The movie looks great in 2D but in 3D its pinnacle.
Possibly the best movie of the weekend, “Homefront.” “Homefront” is about southern red neck justice, but James Franco tries too hard, he’s just supposed to be there to get punched, instead he acts. This movie annoys Josh. Sean is somewhat impressed with the heart in the songs from “Black Nativity.” You can feel Jennifer Hudson’s pain when she sings so much so that we feel that’s the reason she got kicked out of “American Idol” as soon as she did.
Sean got to see “Her” and Josh and I weren’t too happy about that because we want to see it. This movie and the performances should be around when the award time comes; unfortunately Scarlett Johansson is not eligible for the Golden Globe, but who cares The Golden Globes is a joke anyway. It’s an interesting question to ask namely because that’s the same question raised throughout this movie.
Penn & Teller produced a film called Tim’s Vermeer. A man named Tim Jenison became obsessed with the 17th century painter Johannes Vermeer. Jenison who never painted in his life uses the same strategy as Vermeer used (which is essentially tracing),it’s still art, but Carrot Top is still a comic.
Our Undisputed Classic was “The Godfather” largely due to the fact that it was Thanksgiving weekend and we released two podcasts last week. Plus “The Godfather” is on everything Thanksgiving. We lazily talk about it, but we still talk about it.
In 1983 John Carpenter’s “Christine” came out. While it was successful at the time I feel like it’s one of Carpenter’s underrated films. “Halloween,” “Escape from New York” and “The Thing” are great, but I think “Christine” is really good.
Our Trailers are:
Enemies Closer – It looks so bad it’s probably fantastic
Welcome to the Jungle – dumb
Bella Kiss Prologue – Dumb movie impressive trailer considering how dumb the movie looks. It’s getting released to You Tube.
Hercules The Legend Begins – Dumb
Son of God – Jesus looks really good
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty – I really want to see it
