This week we’ve got four new movies. It’s a bad week for movies. It’s Halloween weekend and the studios decided to release movies that could disappear quietly. Burnt, could have been ok, but it didn’t have much of a sense of humor. Our Brand is Crisis keeps pulling it’s punches which leaves us with just kind of a regular movie. Truth is a rather disappointing movie. The movie ends up being a movie that tries to prove George Bush lied. Well no shit and it’s just kind of a weak movie because of that. Bone Tomahawk is a pretty solid western horror film. it’s brutal, so brutal that I had to turn my head and you know what kind of sick movies I like.
Top Five this week is Political films. We talk about All the Presidents Men, Dr. Strangelove, Milk, Argo, An American President, The Contender, Primary Colors, Dave, Election, In the Loop, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and more.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is Wag the Dog. A movie that is so ahead of it’s time while being behind the times. It’s funny, dark and so true. It’s a remarkable movie.
In 1985 we take on To Live and Die in LA, Nightmare on Elm Street 2, Death Wish 3
Our trailers this week are:
Jane Got a Gun
This week we’ve got three new movies this week, No Escape, We Are Friends, Diary of a Teenage Girl. No Escape and We Are Friends are kind of let downs. No Escape is a movie where you just really never believe the main characters are in danger, but you’re supposed to…i.e. the main characters don’t die, you know they’re not gonna die but your supposed to be scared for them…it’s a let down. We Are Friends is ok, but Wes Bentley is so good in the movie that whenever he’s not on the screen you just want more Wes Bentley and since he’s a small character you spend most of the time wishing he were there which is not good for this movie.
EVERYBODY GO SEE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL NOW. It’s a master piece of a movie and that really everybody should see. That said it’s borderline NC-17 and really uncomfortable…but it’s powerful
Our Top Five this week is Top 5 martial arts films. We talk about Kill Bill, Yojimbo, The Matrix, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, The Karate Kid, Drunken Master, Enter the Dragon, The Last Dragon, House of Flying Daggers…and Road House?
Our Undisputed Classic is Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
In 1985 American Ninja, Flesh and Blood, Compromising Positions
Our trailers this week are:
Rock the Kasbah,
Kill Your Friends
All Things Must Pass
Everything Will Be Fine
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.
This week we get “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” Sean claims this movie contains casual racism while Josh is just truly upset. Ridley Scott is Josh’s guy, “Blade Runner,” “Alien,” are two of his favorite movies and lets not forget about “Thelma and Louise,” “Black Hawk Down,” or even “American Gangster” and “Gladiator.” Ridley misses a lot and “Exodus” is one of those misses.
On a brighter note Chris Rock wrote, directed and starred in “Top Five” which is great. We’re all big Chris Rock fans, his movies aren’t always great, but it’s never for a lack of effort. “Top Five” is the best Chris Rock movie. Normally it’s the acting that holds a Chris Rock movie down, but bringing Rosario Dawson on board mixed with several A, B and C list cameos the acting is at worst not a distraction, but I’d argue that it’s top notch.
Then Al Pacino returns to form
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “The Ten Commandments.” This 3 hour plus snooze fest is good, but it’s kind of boring and desperately needs a reboot….by somebody like Ridley Scott…
1984 – Starman, Dune
Hot Tub Time Machine 2
Mad Max: Fury Road

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast, a movie podcast, a movie podcast dedicated to the life and career of Jon Lovitz. Sam Raimi’s “Oz the Great and Powerful” came out this week and Sean loved it and Bob’s excited to see it. OZ leads the boys off topic and over to George Lucas and the “Star Wars” franchise…”Oz the Great and Powerful” appears to be a better prequel.
Bob managed to catch four movies throughout the week. He stumbles through Barry Levinson’s “The Bay.” Bob liked it, but you’d never know based on how he described the movie. After seeing “Argo” his Ben Affleck crush is no longer a guilty pleasure. Both Bob and Sean appear to be very neutral on Paul Thomas Anderson and his film “The Master” although Bob couldn’t stay awake during the film. Finally Bob caught “The Dark Knight Returns Part 2” and Bob and Sean wish they had the time to invest into comic book history.
Our trailers this week are:
New Iron Man 3 trailer
First Hangover 3 trailer
Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing
