RIP Spock – Live Long and Prosper


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.”

A Year In Review: Gone Girl’s Still the Best


Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week there is only one new movie so we take a look back and celebrate the great movies of 2014.


We each list our top 10 movies of 2014. Among the movies mentioned “Gone Girl,” “Inherent Vice,” “Enemy,” “Under The Skin,” “A Most Violent Year,” “Chef,” “Foxcatcher,” “American Sniper,” “Birdman,” “Selma,” “Boyhood” and several more.

The new movie is Woman in Black 2, but it’s not very good and we don’t get into it until very late in the podcast.

Our Undisputed Classic is Jules and Jim. It seems like a really cool movie. It really affected Sean more than Josh but both of them seemed to enjoy it. It seems to have influenced Quentin Tarantino.


1985 – “Hot Moves,” Tomboy,” and “Defense of Realm”


Woman in Gold
Kill Me 3 Times
Terminator Genisys

The Critical Force Awakens


Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.

This week is kind of a throw away week. “Horrible Bosses 2” came out and was funny but forgettable, but really wasn’t the first one too? I would say that’s high praise for a movie like “Horrible Bosses 2.” Then there is the “Penguins of Madagascar.” This movie exists and we’re not the audience for it, but it is something to listen to Sean insult children.

Sean saw the horror film “Babadook” and had some real high praise for that movie. He even said it may be the best female performance of the year by Essie Davis. Then Josh saw “Plastic Galaxy” and nobody including Josh cared.


This weeks defend it is going to be us defending our top 30 best pictures list over the last 30 years.

Aaron Eckhart Would Be Perfect For This


Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we managed to go long. Hey, don’t get mad, we had a lot to talk about “I Frankenstein” came out and we wanted to, we had to talk about it. Speaking of hating critics, our resident critic kept calling Aaron Eckhart’s character Aaron as opposed to Adam (which is his name in the film)…so feel free to hate on him…although I think he’ll take great pleasure in your hatred, he’s a critic after all (Sorry Sean, just having fun).

“Nebraska” also came out nation wide and we spent a good deal of time talking about this film. Both Josh and Sean loved it. We were all happy to see it get recognized with an Oscar nomination. Finally Josh brought the foreign film “The Hunt” to the table. It sounds amazing but super frustrating. That said I think I need to see it. I saw three movies this week that we touch on, Kristen Bell’s “The Lifeguard,” Lake Bell’s “In a World” and Mark Ruffalo Bell’s “Thanks for Sharing.” I liked two of them and almost liked the third.


























Our undisputed classic is “Blow-Up.” All three of us caught this one. I’ve been wanting to see this since I read Aerosmith’s Autobiography “Walk This Way.” Joe Perry mentioned that this was his favorite movie at one point in that book and I had been looking for it ever since. Now that everything is streaming I was able to find it and did I fall in love or what? I think all three of us fell in love with this film and it’s safe to say they don’t make them like this anymore.

This week in 1984 “Broadway Danny Rose” came out as well as “ “Slayground” and the Steve Martin classic “The Lonely Guy.”

Our trailers this week are:

“Afternoon Delight”
“Welcome to the Jungle”
“Bag Man”
“Particle Fever”
