This week we’ve got several new movies. It’s Hunger Games week. While not as many people went to go see this movie it’s actually far and away the best of the series. It’s timing is perfect and it’s really well done. Spotlight is an incredible movie, one of the years best. Everybody in the movie is award worthy. The Secret in their Eyes is a little disappointing, but only because it could’ve been amazing. The Night Before is hilarious.

Back to the Future Turns 30, Magic Mike XXL, Terminator Genisys

0

On this episode of I Hate Critics we’ve got three new movies: Magic Mike XXL, Terminator Genisys, Me & Earl & the Dying Girl. Both Sean and I loved Magic Mike XXL, it was a lot of fun. It kind of makes you want to be a male stripper. The joy they had making this movie comes back off the screen. Shelby and Beth were having fun as well. Me & Earl & the Dying Girl is completely awesome. It’s essentially The Fault in Our Stars done properly. Terminator Genisys is fun but that pisses Josh off because it should be more serious and not fun. I’m paraphrasing because Josh isn’t here to defend himself.

Our Undisputed Classic is Donnie Darko. In sticking with our time travel theme (not our male stripper theme) we went with Donnie Darko and it’s a movie that is just amazing and if you mix the book in with it is even better.

In 1985 Back to the Future came out. The biggest movie of 1985. $200 million in 1985, that’s amazing.

Our trailers this week are:

Jobs
Jenny’s Wedding
Snowden
Secret in their Eyes
Creed

Welcome to The I Hate Critics. The Golden Globes are over, as are the Critics Choice Awards, The Screen Actor’s Guild and the Oscars have made their nominations. We talk about it with excitement then unfortunately move onto “Devil’s Due,” “Ride Along,” “The Nut Job” and “Jake Ryan: The Shadow Recruit”

Our undisputed classic is “The Tree of Life.” Josh absolutely loves this movie, as does Sean. I’m kind of an idiot and I hate it for the exact same reason Josh and Sean love it…although they’d probably say I don’t get it.

This week in 1984 “The Buddy System” and “Scandalous” came out and then went away.

Our trailers this week are:

“Adult World”
“Anita”
“Californian Schemer”
“Mr. Peabody and Sherman”

“Twelve Years a Slave” is 2013’s First Oscar Front Runner

Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. “12 Years a Slave” is this years first real Oscar contender and Sean predicts that Chiwetel Ejiofor is a sure win for Best Actor. I’m always hesitant when Hollywood takes on racism and based on Sean’s recommendation I’m excited that “12 Years a Slave” seems to have knocked it out of the park.

“The Best Man Holiday” a sequel to “The Best Man” came out this weekend as well. Like it’s predecessor “The Best Man Holiday” is a very watchable, fun, enjoyable movie with really good acting and really good directing. It’s hard to say much more than that, but check this out instead of the next Katherine Heigl dud.

“The Dallas Buyer’s Club” came out and while it was good, the acting was distracting. When an actor is campaigning for an Oscar sometimes that can be distracting. Only Sean saw it, but he couldn’t stop staring at Matthew McConaughey. Maybe it was just Sean, but it took him out of the movie.

The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “Badlands.” As a fan of messed up serial killer movies and not really digging on Terrence Malick’s abstract films I was curious how I would take “Badlands.” I love “Badlands.” It will go down as one of my favorite movies. It’s a serial killer movie told from a fairy tale perspective.

Sean sat down this week and watched “Yentl” beginning to end and he had the balls to say it was good, so there’s that.”Yentl” along with “Nate and Hayes” came out in 1983.

Our trailers this week are: “Divergent,” “Maleficent,” “Cuban Fury,” “Noah,” “Man of Steel: Honest Trailer,” “Tar.”
