This episode is dedicated to the loving memory of my friend Jeff Kilgard. He was a great friend who passed away earlier this morning unexpectedly. He left behind his wife Shelby and seven year old son. Jeff was the one that saved all of our back catalog. He was a listener of the show, but he was a really great friend and I will miss him.

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Are you interested in a new “Ghostbusters” Universe? Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd are interested. There’s lots of “Star Wars” news. There are several sequel rumors floating around including “Frozen,” “ Zoolander” and “Mallrats.” Tim Burton is going to make a live action “Dumbo” movie. Jamie Foxx claims he’s going to play Mike Tyson in a Martin Scorsese movie. Sarah Jones finally received some justice.

Cinderella_2015_official_poster

This weeks big release was “Cinderella.” It made $70 million and everybody loves it. Sean even said that this movie wasn’t made for him and he still loved it. Josh watched the movie alone in an emptry theater at 10:40 pm. Just saying. The “Frozen” short in front of “Cinderella” was pretty good too.

Liam Neeson has a new action movie out. We once again discuss beating up Liam Neeson and Ed Harris, but not Vincent D’onofrio. Sean caught a documentary called “The Wrecking Crew” about probably the most important group of American musicians is the 50’s & 60’s.

Our Undisputed Classic is Ingmar Bergman’s “The Seventh Seal.” This movie sounds amazing; I wish I got the chance to see it. It’s been ripped off a million times.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast. We watched two movies this week, Old Man Washington’s “The Equalizer,” and the family friendly “Box Trolls. “The Equalizer” over performed because it made more money than it’s worth and “The Box Trolls” under performed in that it was worth way more than it made.

This week Josh defends “Man on Fire” another Old Man Washington film. He loves the movies potential, Sean and I hate it because of it’s potential to be good.

In 1984 three some what small movies came out: “Heartbreakers,” Irreconcilable Differences,” “The Wild Life” which was written by Cameron Crowe
