This week we’ve got five new movies. Four of the new movies bombed including The Last Witch Hunter, Jem and the Hollograms, Rock the Kasbah and Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs however according our resident film critic is the best movie in the last three years. The other three are pretty bad. Then we were invited by A24 to screen Room, so we sent Josh to Chicago and he thinks it was good but was hoping for great.
Top Five this week is biopics. We talk Raging Bull, Amadeus, Shindler’s List, Good Fellas, The Social Network, Love and Mercy, Straight Outta Compton, Good Night and Good Luck, Lawrence of Arabia, Frida, Milk etc
Our Undisputed Classic this week is Oliver Stone’s The Doors.
In 1985 we take on Krush Groove.
Our trailers this week are:
Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens
This week we’ve got three new movies. The Perfect Guy is an ok movie that could have been really good if it didn’t have to be politically correct. It tries to take two different lanes. On one hand the movie wants to be a serious movie about women putting up with abusive horrible men. In another lane is a campy thriller, however these lanes don’t work simultaneously and therefore it’s kind of a bad movie. 90 Minutes in Heaven is awful…even for a religious movie. The Visit however is actually a pretty good movie. M. Night Shyamalan is back. It has a great twist, even if you figure it out. It’s hilarious, it’s scary, it’s a lot of fun please go see this movie.
Our Top Five this week is twist endings. We talk about Psycho, Saw, Empire Strikes Back, Oldboy, Vertigo, The Usual Suspects, Memento, Primal Fear, Fallen, Fight Club, and The Sixth Sense.
Our Undisputed Classic is The Sixth Sense.
In 1985 After Hours, Agnes of God, Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters
Our trailers this week are:
Our Brand is Crisis
The Happening Honest Trailer
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

Rock the Kasbah,
Kill Your Friends
All Things Must Pass

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we talk about Harrison Ford’s plane crash, Patton Oswalt’s idea for “Unbreakable 2 & 3,” and then a teacher has been arrested in Ohio for screening “ABC’s of Death” to young teenagers. So we ask the question, when can you show your kids rated R movies?
This weeks releases include “Chappie,” “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Unfinished Business” and “Merchants of Doubt.” These movies generated a lot of hate from our film critic. Thankfully Josh saved the day by liking “Chappie.” It was one of my favorite moments on the podcast. Sean’s hate was at an all time high and Josh liked the movie and embraced his love of the movie despite Sean’s hate and it was magical…ok I’m being corny.
“The Second Best Exotic Marigold” is gentle and pleasant. Gentle and pleasant often means lazy and pointless. “Unfinished Business” will probably go down as one of the worst movies of the year. It misses the point on so many levels. At worst “Unfinished Business” should have been another unoriginal Vince Vaughn comedy, but it was much worse than that. It’s a bummer.
Then there is a documentary about “Merchants of Doubt.” It’s about how these spin doctors that have convinced half of America that Global Warming is a hoax. It’s pretty infuriating, but the people that need to see this movie won’t.
This weeks Defend It film is “A.I. Artificial Intelligence.” Josh and Sean both agree this movie is great. I can’t dispute it but I can’t help but want to see what Kubrick would have done with it. Could you imagine if you watched every movie wondering what Kubrick’s version would be like? That’s not fair to the movie.
1985 – “Mask” and “The Hit”
Avengers: Age of Ultron
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.
This week is even more of a throw away week than last week. “Pyramid” was the only movie to come out. So there’s that, but we got the chance to catch both “Wild” starring Reese Witherspoon and “Cake” starring Jennifer Aniston, both of which are probably looking at Oscar nominations. What started as a weak year for female performances has quickly turned it to a very strong year.
This week we never got around to picking a segment movie so we thought we’d talk about sex. We brought in fellow podcaster Lindsay from Mommy’s Cocktail Hour to join us in our discussion to get the female perspective.
1984 – Beverly Hills Cop, 2010 A Space Odyssey
