Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. In the news this week, Steven Spielberg to direct “Ready Player One.” “Fifty Shades Darker” gets a new director because author EL James was a pain in the ass. Hugh Jackman says he is done with “Wolverine” after the new movie. Idris Elba may play the next “Star Trek” villain. There’s a possible “Office” movie starring Ricky Gervais. Finally the website “Film Threat” funded by Chris Gore is doing a kick starter campaign to keep the site up and running.
The new movies this week include “Home,” “Get Hard,” and “It Follows.” Josh and I have kids and we got out of this movie, but Sean still had to go and it’s not bad. It’s not Pixar, but it’s got enough heart. Rent it for your kids when it comes out.
“Get Hard” is an awful movie with two really funny guys in it which makes it watchable, but hell I’d just watch Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell do the late night circuit. “It Follows” is the independent horror that got so much buzz that it got a wide release. It’s fine, we all appreciate it on different levels but it’s not a game changer by any means. It’s a meta movie and then some.
Our Undisputed Classic is the Paul Newman classic “Cool Hand Luke.” For the first time Sean hadn’t seen the classic but Josh and I had. Josh and I loved it Sean liked it…a little. Sean’s wrong though.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we only get one new movie and it’s the prequel sequel of “Planet of The Apes” and “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.” Both Josh and Sean are fans of the “Apes” series about both Sean and Josh enjoyed this movie. We also talk about “Spring Breakers” and “Afflicted.”
This weeks “Undisputed Classic” was “Blue Velvet.” Josh picked it and wasn’t as fond of it as Sean and I were. It’s not the most fun movie to watch, but it is insanely artistic and well thought out. At the very least I feel like you have to respect it.
In 1984 “The Last Star Fighter” came out. For a movie that time seems to have forgotten, it plays a big role in both Josh and my life…for very different reasons.
