Aliens turns 30 this week and the new Ghostbusters comes out. So we’ve decide that we’re going to take a look back on the four Alien films and the original 2 Ghostbuster films.
Do the movies hold up? Are they classics? How will they fare in our Flickchart challenge.
This week we’ve got two new movies. Our first movie is the latest installment in the James Bond universe and that’s Spectre. Our resident film critic didn’t not like it, but neither did our resident Bond fan. In fact we spend most of the movie going through the history of James Bond and picking it apart and talking about what works, what worked and what’s wrong. We then move on to The Peanuts Movie which Sean and I both adored, but I couldn’t help troll it a little….just a little.
Top Five this week is Peanut Movie/specials and or James Bond films. We talk about about them all so get ready.
For our Undisputed Classic this week Josh assigned each of us a Bond movie to watch, so we took on Goldfinger, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and The World is Not Enough.
In 1985 we don’t really take on anything but That Was Then This is Now came out.
Our trailers this week are:
Alice Through the Looking Glass
London Has Fallen
Star Wars The Force Awakens – Japanese Trailer
Star Wars The Force Awakens Honest Trailers
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Oscar recap show. It’s late, we’re all three exhausted and it shows. The Oscars are just two damn long. “Birdman” wins the night. I think the three of us differ on how good “Birdman” is, it’s my favorite of the movies nominated, I think it’s a little lower on Josh and Sean’s list. We all three agree that “Gone Girl” is the best movie of the year, but what are you going to do?
Some memorable moments in the show include JK Simmons telling us to call our moms. Patricia Arquette asking for equal women’s rights, it’s sad that in 2015 this is still an issue. Common delivered one of the most powerful speeches of the night and the writer of “The Imitation Game” deserved to win another award for his acceptance speech.
It’s weird, there’s not much to complain about. I was entertained enough, but it was just so long. I apologize if we’re not completely with it this episode…we’ll get them next time.
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Wait what’s this? Two episodes in one day? Yes, It’s our bonus Thanksgiving episode. This year we reached out to three of my favorite podcasts to help us out.
Pod on Pod (www.podonpod.com) – This podcast reviews others podcasts. There are hundreds of thousands of podcasts out there and these guys help pick out the good ones for you. I found out about them when they reviewed the Ivy Envy podcast and have since subscribed to their show.
Handicap This (www.handicapthis.com) – Mike and Tim’s podcast “The G.I.M.P. Show” has quickly become one of my favorites. Corey Fineran told me to check it out. I had no idea what it was and I just found myself falling in love with the show it’s both informative and entertaining.
The Awesome 80’s Podcast (www.theawesome80s.net) – This podcast celebrates the 80’s. Josh, Sean and I grew up in the 80’s as did Michael and Lawrence. Their show is a lot of fun. Each episode use to be about a stand alone movie, but 200 plus episodes in they’ve expanded to interviews and beyond. It’s a fun show be sure to check it out.
The movies we’re thankful for:
Pod on Pod: “Mallrats,” “My Fair Lady” Honorable Mentions: “The Godfather” & “The Outlaw Josey Wales”
Josh: “The Road,” “High Fidelity”
Handicap This: “Music Within”
Bob: “Fed Up,” “My Cousin Vinny”
The Awesome 80’s Podcast – Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, John Candy and aging celebrities on social media that have nothing better to do than talk with them.
Sean: “Gone Girl,” Amadeus”
We I at I Hate Critics want to thank you all for listening and want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.
