Straight Outta Compton A Film Critic Named Sean Patrick

0

This week we’ve got two new movies: Straight Outta Compton and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Straight Outta Compton is a phenomenal movie. It’s come out at the perfect time. Just like hip hop in general this movie is not going to get the credit it deserves when Oscar season comes around. The performances are incredible. This movie is on par with films like Ray and Walk the Line. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is a good movie that you’re going to forget by next week, classic Guy Ritchie.

RIP Spock – Live Long and Prosper

0

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.

Spock

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.”

“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

0

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”
