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:

“Interstellar”

“Jupitar Ascending”

“Edge of Tomorrow”

“Bad Words”

“Godzilla”

“The Knights of Badassdom”

“The Fantastic Fear of Everything”

Prisoners is an Oscar Worthy Movie

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Podcast. This week there two new movies out, Prisoners and the dance movie Battle of the Year. Sean liked Prisoners and thought that it’d hang around for award season. He didn’t understand why Battle of the Year was even made.

This weeks ‘Undisputed Classic’ is American Graffiti. Bob disputed it’s Classic status, while Sean disagreed whole heartedly

In this week in 1983 Eddie and The Cruisers and Educating Rita
