Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we dismiss our regular format to discuss our favorite films that include: \
The Hateful Eight

Love & Mercy
Queen of Earth
The Big Short
Straight Outta Compton
The Night Before
Where to Invade Next
This week we’ve got four new movies this week. The Martian, Sicario, The Walk and Hell and Back. The first three movies are fantastic. The Walk was released in IMAX only and it didn’t do very but it’s a fantastic film. We highly recommend checking it out. The Martian and Sicario also came out and they are two of the best films of the year so far. They’ll most likely be overlooked come award season which is unfortunate. Then there is Hell and Back which nobody knew about and Sean didn’t find funny.
Our Undisputed Classic is Solaris. Yes there are multiple Solaris films. We talk about the 1972 and the 2002 version and we had a really great conversation about these films and about Science Fiction in general.
In 1985 we take on Commando and Jagged Edge
Our trailers this week are:
Ip Man 3
On this episode of I Hate Critics we’ve got two new movies: Ant-Man came out this week opposite Trainwreck, Minions, Jurassic World, Inside Out. It still managed to bring in $60 million which people are saying is good bad, but really it’s pretty good. It’s not Guardians of the Galaxy, but who would really complain about a $60 million opening. The other movie to come out was the Amy Schumer/Judd Apatow vehicle Trainwreck. Ant-Man was fine, but Trainwreck is the best comedy of the year so far. If you’re a fan of Amy Schumer and or Judd Apatow then Trainwreck is a must see.
Our Undisputed Classic is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. We spend the whole segment bad mouthing women who like this film. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a highly racist film that we were unable to get into or understand why people like.
In 1985 The Coca Cola Kid starring Eric Roberts came out and we probably spent more time on this movie than any of the other movies.
Our trailers this week are:
The Fantastic Four
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Wait what’s this? Two episodes in one day? Yes, It’s our bonus Thanksgiving episode. This year we reached out to three of my favorite podcasts to help us out.
Pod on Pod (www.podonpod.com) – This podcast reviews others podcasts. There are hundreds of thousands of podcasts out there and these guys help pick out the good ones for you. I found out about them when they reviewed the Ivy Envy podcast and have since subscribed to their show.
Handicap This (www.handicapthis.com) – Mike and Tim’s podcast “The G.I.M.P. Show” has quickly become one of my favorites. Corey Fineran told me to check it out. I had no idea what it was and I just found myself falling in love with the show it’s both informative and entertaining.
The Awesome 80’s Podcast (www.theawesome80s.net) – This podcast celebrates the 80’s. Josh, Sean and I grew up in the 80’s as did Michael and Lawrence. Their show is a lot of fun. Each episode use to be about a stand alone movie, but 200 plus episodes in they’ve expanded to interviews and beyond. It’s a fun show be sure to check it out.
The movies we’re thankful for:
Pod on Pod: “Mallrats,” “My Fair Lady” Honorable Mentions: “The Godfather” & “The Outlaw Josey Wales”
Josh: “The Road,” “High Fidelity”
Handicap This: “Music Within”
Bob: “Fed Up,” “My Cousin Vinny”
The Awesome 80’s Podcast – Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, John Candy and aging celebrities on social media that have nothing better to do than talk with them.
Sean: “Gone Girl,” Amadeus”
We I at I Hate Critics want to thank you all for listening and want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.
