Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we had four new movies. The Oscar nominated Danish Girl, the forgettable The Boy and The Fifth Wave and Dirty Grandpa which should have been really funny and obscene but instead it was just obscene and unfunny…but it gave us an excuse to make it a Robert DeNiro week.
Our Top Five this week is favorite Robert DeNiro movies. We talk Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Deer Hunter, Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, Goodfellas, Casino and many more.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is Mean Streets, the movie that started it all for Martin Scorsese and Robert DeNiro.
In 1986 My Chauffeur and The Image Maker came out.
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast – Special Oscar Edition. The Oscars just ended and we just finished recording our recap. Gravity wins all the technical awards, “Dallas Buyer’s Club” wins all the acting awards and “12 Years a Slave” wins Best Picture.
Why do we watch the Oscars? How do you define the best? My favorite movie was “American Hustle,” but is it better than “12 Years a Slave?” How do you answer that? Overall I was happy with the winners, but I would have been happy if the night went in a completely different direction most likely.
We spend a lot of time talking about “12 Years a Slave” and it really affected all three of us. Slavery was the American Holocaust and we never refer to it that way. Sean points out that there are pictures of slave owners on our money…still. Hitler’s not on any money in Germany…think about that.
There were great moments on Sunday night. Lupita Nyong’o’s acceptance speech was amazing. Matthew McConaughey’s was a lot of fun. Jared Leto was great. Ellen was funny, but the show was too long. Too many pointless montages, too many pointless musical numbers. The big losers of the night were John Travolta and Bette Midler. Let’s not forget about Kim Novak’s Face.
Welcome to The I Hate Critics The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. This week we talk about five movies, but let’s be honest “Gravity” is the one must see of 2013. It’s like “Avatar,” “Titanic,” “Jurassic Park.” You really need to see this movie in a theater and we loved it so much we talk about it for over 20 minutes. Which means we hardly talk about “Runner, Runner.”
We talk way too long about Christianity and Bodybuilding, but it’s good discussion so it was tough to cut any of it. Finally Metallica’s 3D movie “Through the Never” finally came to our little town and it was impressive in its own right. Let’s face though, if you don’t like Metallica you’re not going to see it (although you should).
The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is John Wayne’s “The Searchers.” Both Josh and Bob take a look at it this week. Both of them enjoy it, but the Clint Eastwood era is their preferred era while Sean thinks it’s the best western of all time, but what does he know?
In this week in 1983 “Never Say Never Again,” “Romantic Comedy” and “Never Cry Wolf.”
