Next Week: Glass, our Undisputed Classic is Unbreakable and just for fun Supervan
This weeks episode is a downer. Pixels disappoints, Southpaw & Paper Towns are to formulaic. Mr. Holmes is great but nobody has seen it. Adam Sandler is almost single handedly the only thing wrong with Pixels and that breaks my heart. I want to accuse Sean of being a dumb critics, but his audience didn’t even go and see Pixels so I can’t defend Sandler. Jake Gyllenhaal is amazing in Southpaw, but the movie is kind of dumb. It was written for Eminem and oddly enough would have been a better movie if Eminem was in the movie. It’s all Gyllenhaal’s fault. Paper Towns is fine. Again we’ve seen it before, it’s a formula. It’s forgettable which kind of makes it worse than a bad movie. At least its not Fault in Our Stars or something by Nicolas Sparks. Then there is Mr. Holmes starring Ian McKellan as Sherlock Holmes. Mr. Holmes is such a unique interesting movie that everyone should go see right now.
Our Undisputed Classic is Rebel Without A Cause. Sean explains why this movie has held up and is such a great classic. I had a hard time getting into it but I can’t argue against anything Sean says. He even does a pretty good job of explaining why I don’t think it holds up.
In 1985 European Vacation, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and Heavenly Kid

Queen of Elizabeth
On this episode of I Hate Critics we’ve got two new movies: Ant-Man came out this week opposite Trainwreck, Minions, Jurassic World, Inside Out. It still managed to bring in $60 million which people are saying is good bad, but really it’s pretty good. It’s not Guardians of the Galaxy, but who would really complain about a $60 million opening. The other movie to come out was the Amy Schumer/Judd Apatow vehicle Trainwreck. Ant-Man was fine, but Trainwreck is the best comedy of the year so far. If you’re a fan of Amy Schumer and or Judd Apatow then Trainwreck is a must see.
Our Undisputed Classic is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. We spend the whole segment bad mouthing women who like this film. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a highly racist film that we were unable to get into or understand why people like.
In 1985 The Coca Cola Kid starring Eric Roberts came out and we probably spent more time on this movie than any of the other movies.
Our trailers this week are:
The Fantastic Four
