Star Wars The Nerds Awaken

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. There are four new movies in theaters this week. Of course there is the blockbuster “Paul Blart 2” which both Sean and Josh seemed to enjoy enough. Then there was what appeared to be a disappointment with “Unfriended” but actually had some style and was fairly impressive. James Franco and Jonah Hill got together for the disappointing “True Story.” However the best movie of the week was one nobody saw called “While We’re Young.”

Our fantasy movies (if you don’t know what I’m talking about go back and listen to the episode “Furious 7) got a more interesting in that Sean now has a movie on the board while “Furious 7” neared the $300 million mark.

Our Defend It film is the rated R mall cop movie “Observe and Report.” Josh has never been a big Seth Rogen fan but even he could appreciate the genius that is “Observe and Report.”

In 1985 was a waste of a segment because nothing of note came out.

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.”
