50 Shades of Grey

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we are joined by the two more promiscuous members of the Mommy’s Cocktail Hour Podcast Tawny and Lindsay. They went and saw “50 Shades of Grey” to at least give us a female perspective on the film and we’re guys and we’re dumb. The movie wasn’t made for us but maybe it was made for them. A movie that was made for us was “The Kingsman.”

Inspired by the buzz that is “50 Shades of Grey” we chose “The Last Tango in Paris” as our Undisputed Classic.

1985 – A lot came out but only “The Breakfast Club” matters

This week “Nightcrawler” came out. Sean and Josh loved it, I hated it but for the same reasons they loved it, so at worst it’s effecting. It’s a satire on capitalism and it will piss you off. In my opinion character’s like this are more evil than serial killers and other murderers.

The other movie to come out this week was “Before I Go To Sleep.” Sean’s critic friend referred to this movie as “50 First Dates” as a thriller and it probably would have been better if Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore were in it instead of Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.

Our Undisputed Classic is “Peeping Tom.” It’s a movie that sticks with you. I didn’t like it the first time I saw it and the more I get away from it the more I like it. Sean has it among his favorite movies of all time. You should really check this movie out.

1984 – “The Killing Fields” Josh failed the sleep test and Sean thinks it’s over rated.

Boyhood, Locke, Woody Allen & Baseball

0

Welcome to the bonus episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This episode we’re just finishing last weeks episode. Basically “Boyhood” & “Magic in the Moonlight” came to the theaters while “Locke” was released on Blu Ray. We knew all three of these were worth discussing so rather than cram them into an already packed podcast we thought we’d give them their own. To fill time we threw in the “Battered Bastards of Baseball” because we love baseball and it’s a really good documentary.
