This week we’ve got three new movies. We kick things off with Hotel Transylvania. We’re three grown men so our opinion doesn’t really matter but at some point Sean indirectly calls our kids dumb. The Intern ends up being a pretty solid Nancy Meyers movie, possibly her best. Eli Roth lets us down with The Green Inferno. I wanted it to be good and theres a lot of potential here but the execution was just off.
Our Top Five this week is our favorite messed up movies which include A Serbian Film, Salo: 120 Days of Sodom, Saw, Requiem For a Dream, Irreversible, Oldboy, I Spit on Your Grave, A Clockwork Orange, and more
Our Undisputed Classic is Cannibal Holocaust. It’s a movie all three of us ended up liking. It’s shocking but it’s well made and truly is terrifying.
In 1985 we take on Maxie, Invasion USA and Code Named Emerald
Our trailers this week are:
The Big Short
We’ve got two new movies this week. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation and Vacation. Mission: Impossible cleaned up during the weekend box office bringing in $58 million. Both Sean and Josh loved Mission: Impossible, they claim it’s the best action movie of the year. There’s no way that’s true because Mad Max Fury Road came out this year but whatever. Vacation really upset Sean. I personally had no problem with it. It’s not as memorable as its predecessors, but to me it’s hard to say something is or is not funny. If it’s funny to somebody then it’s funny. You can’t define funny.
Our Undisputed Classic is National Lampoon’s Vacation
In 1985 Fright Night, Weird Science, Sesame Street Presents Follow that Bird
Our trailers this week are:
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. We start the podcast off doing a recap of round two of our March Movie Madness tournament. In the news this week Joseph Gordon-Levitt will produce and star in a “Fraggle Rock” Movie. Chris Rock is penning a sequel to “Top Five.” South Korea is going to drop copies of “The Interview” into North Korea.
There’s a new “Divergent” movie out called “Insurgent.” As three thirty something year old males we hated it…well only Sean saw it but Josh and I have no interest in it. Josh is more interested in the next fan fiction story that’ll turn into the next mom sex book.
Sean insists that Sean Penn could kick my ass…he’s probably right. “The Gunman” is the new Sean Penn movie and it’s as Josh called it, a movie. If you’re going to the movie for Idris Elba, stay home, he’s in it for three movies. Then there is a religious movie called “Do You Believe” that Sean bought. It’s not the typical pandering piece of crap that keeps coming out every month. It’s an honest movie that is a little convenient, but it’s very cool about showing why somebody would have faith.
Our Undisputed Classic is the Robert Redford film “Three Days of the Condor.” This movie is a great, smart CIA thriller. It’s scary how accurate this movie ended up being. It is about as perfect as a CIA spy thriller can get.
1985 – The Last Dragon, Friday the 13th Part 5, Porky’s Revenge, and Baby Secret of the Lost Legend.
Mission Impossible: Rouge Nation
Avengers: Age of Ultron
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week not much came out. Will Smith made a con movie called Focus. It’s fine, but like most cons, the con is sloppy and it’s not necessarily entertaining enough to take your focus off of the con like “Oceans 11.” Then there was a horror film called “Lazarus Effect” that Josh hated so much he called it potentially the worst movie he’s ever seen.
Our beloved/hated film critic Sean Patrick had a near death experience this week. He had a massive asthma attack that put him in the hospital for six days. At one point he actually lost the ability to breath and had to have machines breath for him for several hours. He’s back and he’s doing better so hopefully he stays that way.
We lost Leonard Nimoy famous as Spock from “Star Trek.” RIP Spock, “Live long in prosper.”
The Academy Award winning film “Still Alice” also got released in theaters. Julianne Moore won best actress. Sean thinks it was a great performance, but had three or four other performances he preferred. Sean compared it to a Lifetime movie with great acting.
Our Undisputed Classic is “The Sting.” Stars Robert Redford and Paul Newman make “The Sting” highly entertaining. Josh loved it the most, Sean tried to pick it a part and Bob enjoyed it.
1985 – Several movies came out. The best two movies are Woody Allen’s “Purple Rose of Cairo,” and John Cusak in “The Sure Thing.”

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we are joined by the two more promiscuous members of the Mommy’s Cocktail Hour Podcast Tawny and Lindsay. They went and saw “50 Shades of Grey” to at least give us a female perspective on the film and we’re guys and we’re dumb. The movie wasn’t made for us but maybe it was made for them. A movie that was made for us was “The Kingsman.”
Inspired by the buzz that is “50 Shades of Grey” we chose “The Last Tango in Paris” as our Undisputed Classic.
1985 – A lot came out but only “The Breakfast Club” matters
