Three Middle Aged White Men Talk Feminism

0

This week we’ve got several new movies. Diane Keaton remade every other movie she’s made over the last ten years with Love the Coopers. Sean wasn’t thrilled. The 33 is a Lifetime like movie that made it to the theaters. It’s pretty good, but it’s not a very gritty story…it’s just warm and fuzzy. Suffragette was an ok that was supposed to be great about the early feminist movement. My All American is a Christian film that also happens to be the best film of the weekend. It’s Rudyesque but the direction is a little amateur. Knock Knock is the new Eli Roth film that is so bad it’s amazing. Keanu Reeves redefines bad acting. It’s actually so bad that it’s good. I Smile Back is the new Sarah Silverman movie. It’s not a comedy what so ever. Silverman is great in it, the movies great. It’ll probably end up on the outside looking in come award season, but that shouldn’t take anything away from this movie.

Suffragette

Top Five this week is Feminist movies.

For our Undisputed Classic this week is “Brian’s Song.”

Spy, Insidious 3, Entourage

0

Not every week can a movie bring in $100,000,000 at the box office. With theaters still full of blockbusters such as Avengers, Mad Max, Pitch Perfect 2 and Furious 7 there’s not a lot of room for new movies. That didn’t stop the good folks behind Spy, Insidious 3 and Entourage from trying.

Both Sean and Josh claim that Spy is far and away the funniest movie so far this year. Sean claims that Insidious Chapter 3 is equally as strong as it’s predecessors and that Entourage is an embarrassing piece of crap. The filmmakers behind Entourage grossly over estimated their audience.

The I Hate Critics podcast has been asked to be a part of Lebowski Fest in Milwaukee Wisconsin the weekend of Aug 21 and 22nd. Please if you’re in the area we’d love to hang out and get to know some of you.

They are going to remake Big Trouble in Little China with The Rock. We’re hoping to do a Kickstarter campaign to convince Fox to not remake Big Trouble in Little China

We asked the audience in honor of Entourage being released this week, what their favorite movies about movies were. We talked Sunset Blvd, Mulholland Drive, The Player, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Best 80’s Horror Films & Tomorrowland

0

“Tomorrowland” came out this week and while successful wasn’t quite the box office juggernaut I was hoping for. The movie itself has a lot of promise but just falls short. Older kids to teenagers may enjoy the movie more so than adults, but it’s an incomplete movie that’s easy to pull a part. From a Madding Crowd nearly puts the podcast to sleep.

The remake of “The Poltergeist” came out this week as well and is one of the worst remakes thus far. They more or less just took the name and put it on a low rank modern PG-13 horror film. They tried to hard to be different from the original while not being original if that makes sense. It was more or less a money grab all around.

poltergeist

We asked our audience their top five 80’s Horror films of all time. “The Thing,” “The Shining,” “The Poltergiest,” “Evil Dead 1 & 2,” and “Nightmare on Elm Street” led the way while “They Live,” “Cannibal Holocaust,” “The Gate,” “Cujo” and “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” were mentioned as well.

Our Undisputed Classic was “The Poltergeist.” All three of us really enjoyed the movie. It’s definitely a classic. We debate the PG rating and whether Tobe Hooper gets enough credit for this classic.

#TBT “Catching Fire” is Just All Right With Me

0

Throw Back Thursday

Welcome to the I Hate Critics movie podcast, a movie podcast greater than your average movie podcast. This week we talk about “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Delivery Man” and “Inside Llewyn Davis.” The biggest movie of the weekend happens to be the worst movie of the weekend, but it’s not bad, it’s just a young adult story which means it has no balls and if you poke at it enough it falls apart. That said Jennifer Lawrence is on the verge of becoming a great actress and if for no other reason check it out to see her work.

CatchingCritics

“Delivery Man” is a solid Vince Vaughn film. I miss the days when he took more risks, but it could be worse, he could be Adam Sandler. Sean saw “Inside Llewyn Davis” and called it the perfect movie. Josh and i thought about ending him out of pure jealousy, but then we might never get to see it.

Our undisputed classic this week was “Oldboy.” Josh saw it twice. This weeks segment was my proudest moment in all of our podcasts. If you don’t leave that segment wanting…needing to see the original “Oldboy” then we’ve done something wrong. Josh missed a huge plot point in the movie that when he figured it out…which he does live on this podcast it all clicks and is a magical moment that we caught. You need to see this movie.

In 1983 “Terms of Endearment” began its reign as one of the most overrated films of all time while “Of Unknown Origin” took over Sean’s mind.

Our trailers this week our:
“Nymphomaniac”
“Sabotage”
“The Muppets Most Wanted”
“Best Night Ever”
“Need for Speed”
“Robocop”
“Raze”
