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.
Top Five this week is Feminist movies.
For our Undisputed Classic this week is “Brian’s Song.”
In 1985 Once Bitten
Our trailers this week are:
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
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.
1985 – The Goonies
Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation
Bridge of Spies
“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.
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.
