“Gravity” and “12 Years a Slave” Win the #Oscars – Recap

0

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.

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:

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

Welcome to The I Hate Critics 2013 year in review. First we’re going to talk about Justin Bieber’s “Believe.” It was dumb so we moved on to the highly anticipated “Grudge Match.” Sean liked it!!!! “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” divides Sean and Josh. “The Wolf of Wall Street” pisses both Sean and Bob while Josh watched Keanu Reeve’s career flash before his eyes.

“Twelve Years a Slave” is 2013’s First Oscar Front Runner

0

Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. “12 Years a Slave” is this years first real Oscar contender and Sean predicts that Chiwetel Ejiofor is a sure win for Best Actor. I’m always hesitant when Hollywood takes on racism and based on Sean’s recommendation I’m excited that “12 Years a Slave” seems to have knocked it out of the park.

“The Best Man Holiday” a sequel to “The Best Man” came out this weekend as well. Like it’s predecessor “The Best Man Holiday” is a very watchable, fun, enjoyable movie with really good acting and really good directing. It’s hard to say much more than that, but check this out instead of the next Katherine Heigl dud.

“The Dallas Buyer’s Club” came out and while it was good, the acting was distracting. When an actor is campaigning for an Oscar sometimes that can be distracting. Only Sean saw it, but he couldn’t stop staring at Matthew McConaughey. Maybe it was just Sean, but it took him out of the movie.

The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “Badlands.” As a fan of messed up serial killer movies and not really digging on Terrence Malick’s abstract films I was curious how I would take “Badlands.” I love “Badlands.” It will go down as one of my favorite movies. It’s a serial killer movie told from a fairy tale perspective.

Sean sat down this week and watched “Yentl” beginning to end and he had the balls to say it was good, so there’s that.”Yentl” along with “Nate and Hayes” came out in 1983.

Our trailers this week are: “Divergent,” “Maleficent,” “Cuban Fury,” “Noah,” “Man of Steel: Honest Trailer,” “Tar.”
