Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week Sean and Josh see “Maleficent” and Sean and I see “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” The verdict is Jolie good, MacFarlane bad (Sean still thought he was funny). I’m not sure when, but at some point in the show I claim I can kick Denzel Washington’s ass…not sure how that even came up.
The Undisputed Classic is back and this week it’s arguably the best western of all time “Once Upon A Time in the West.” All three of love this movie.
In 1984 “Once Upon a Time in America” and “Star Trek III” came out.
This is Where I Leave You
Kill the Messenger
The Green Inferno
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Our March Movie Madness has made it to the final four with “Rocky” squaring off against “Almost Famous” and “Fight Club” taking on “Field of Dreams.” This week saw the film “Noah” wash away the competition (so dumb) with a great box office week, but not a great movie…not a bad movie, but just big budget blockbuster, not something you’d expect from Darren Aronofsky, but definitely something you’d expect from Russell Crowe. At least it wasn’t “Sabotage,” because according to Sean and the rest of the free world…that movie sucked.
The best movie to come out in our neck of the woods is “Bad Words” according to Sean. First time director Jason Bateman knocked it out of the park, so that’s exciting. I spent four hours late Saturday night watching both volumes 1 and 2 of Lars Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac.” I can’t decide if it’s good or bad, but it’s intriguing. I feel like whether you liked it or hated it, Von Trier got his point across and that’s all you can really ask for.
This week there was also a great article over at www.rogerebert.com begging film critics to actually talk about filmmaking rather than just how they (the critic) was affected emotionally by the movie, which Sean blamed on Harry Knowles and 9-11.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Breathless.” This movie left Josh breathless (sorry I got nothing). Actually Sean left Josh “Breathless” after Sean talked about how much he loved this film.
In 1984 “Romancing the Stone” came out. Josh and Sean love this film while I am sick of it for the same reasons they love it…go figure.
Trailers this week:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
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:
“Edge of Tomorrow”
“The Knights of Badassdom”
“The Fantastic Fear of Everything”
