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.

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

Top Five 10 Commandments

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
