Women are under paid in Hollywood
This week only one new movie came out and it was “Hot Pursuit” starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. It’s not a great movie but that mixed with a series of articles lead us to the discussion of equal pay for women in Hollywood. We try to explain why they’re not paid equally but ultimately come back to the fact that they should be. It’s not just Hollywood, it’s all over the world, but why not start in Hollywood at least.
Our Undisputed Classic was actually a Cult Classic Guantlet that Sean laid down before Josh and I. We were tasked to check out the Netflix Cult Classic section and each check out a movie for the first time. Sean loved “Goon,” I appreciated and “Reanimator” and Josh loathed “Wet Hot American Summer” despite the fact that both Sean and I love the flick.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week the movies from last week topped the box office, but McFarland USA, The Duff and Hot Tub Time Machine 2 came out. Josh and I watched “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” We can’t really complain about it as much as we’d like to. It’s not made for us but we’re happy that it exists. Then Josh finally saw “Foxcatcher.” He had a similar reaction Sean and I did. Therefore we recommend you go see it.
In place of the Defend It segment, we’re each going to challenge a year we feel got it wrong and defend our reasoning.
Josh takes on 1976 (“Rocky” vs “Network” & “All The President’s Men,” I took on 1994 “Pulp Fiction” vs “Forrest Gump” and Sean took on 1989 “Driving Ms. Daisy” vs “Dead Poet’s Society”
1985 – Into the Night came out. That’s all, it came out

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week Aaron Paul tries to cash in on his “Breaking Bad” success by ripping off “Fast and the Furious” and taking all the fun out of it. In an attempt to not spend a dime Warner Bros released “Veronica Mars” in AMC theaters only and on demand. Despite the lack of interest Warner Bros has in it, the movie is pretty good…as good as the television show.
Tyler Perry’s career seems to take another step closer to the end, but lucky for him he’s loaded. With “Single Mom’s Club” he takes on the hot button issue of single moms. All they need is a man right? We took in two documentaries this week. Sean saw “The Secret Lives of Jean Seberg” which was the heart-breaking story of how the US government ruined this woman’s life. She was an actor from Iowa, became an activist for the Black Panthers and was ultimately destroyed by the FBI. Then Bob and Josh watched “As the Palaces Burn.” The film was about the rock band Lamb of God who were just filming a simple documentary to go along with their newest album when the lead single was arrested for murder in Croatia.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Tokyo Story.” Sean had ripped into Josh and I for not trying very hard, so Josh tried real hard and watched possibly one of the greatest films of all time
In 1984 nothing of substance came out so we talked about this unbelievable article about the making of the “Street Fighter” movie starring Jean Claude Van Damme. It was a fascinating article, check it out here. http://www.polygon.com/features/2014/3/10/5451014/street-fighter-the-movie-what-went-wrong

Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. This week in movie will go down in movie history as one of the more memorable weeks because I can’t even remember what came out. “Ender’s Game,” the old guy movie and the turkey movie. “Last Vegas” and what was it called, oh yeah “Free Birds.” In short “Ender’s Game” was surprisingly decent and “Last Vegas” and “Free Birds” were pretty bland despite a great cast in “Last Vegas” and a decent director in “Free Birds.”
Josh able from the “Film Fan Perspective” wasn’t able to join us this week.
The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Despite being a big Kubrick fan I never saw is masterpiece “2001.” I’m not a big fan of abstract movies and “2001” is definitely that, but I was drawn in and it made me ask questions, it made me want to know more and it was beautiful.
In movie news Emile Hirsch has signed on to play John Belushi. We took this news bashed Shia Labeouf for no real reason. We talk about the possible “ExpendaBelles” movie with Cameron Diaz, Meryl Streep, and MIlla Jovovich. Sean insists it’s a joke. Finally we talk about the new “Star Wars” films and the rumor that Harrison Ford has signed on.
This week in 1983 we have the Chevy Chase classic “Deal of the Century.” What? You don’t remember this movie? Ok.
Check out our trailers this week: “Catching Fire,” “Xmen: Days of Futures Past,” “47 Ronin,” “Beyond Outrage,” “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Open Grave,” and “Labor Day.”
