Best 80’s Horror Films & Tomorrowland

0

“Tomorrowland” came out this week and while successful wasn’t quite the box office juggernaut I was hoping for. The movie itself has a lot of promise but just falls short. Older kids to teenagers may enjoy the movie more so than adults, but it’s an incomplete movie that’s easy to pull a part. From a Madding Crowd nearly puts the podcast to sleep.

The remake of “The Poltergeist” came out this week as well and is one of the worst remakes thus far. They more or less just took the name and put it on a low rank modern PG-13 horror film. They tried to hard to be different from the original while not being original if that makes sense. It was more or less a money grab all around.

poltergeist

We asked our audience their top five 80’s Horror films of all time. “The Thing,” “The Shining,” “The Poltergiest,” “Evil Dead 1 & 2,” and “Nightmare on Elm Street” led the way while “They Live,” “Cannibal Holocaust,” “The Gate,” “Cujo” and “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” were mentioned as well.

Our Undisputed Classic was “The Poltergeist.” All three of us really enjoyed the movie. It’s definitely a classic. We debate the PG rating and whether Tobe Hooper gets enough credit for this classic.

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we talk “The Hobbit,” “A Madea Christmas” and “Nebraska.” We mostly talk about “The Hobbit” though. Let me rephrase that, Josh and Sean mostly talk about “The Hobbit” while I take a nap and cough into the microphone from time to time. Also “Nebraska” is really good, but you’re probably not going to see it.

Our Undisputed Classic was “African Queen.” Humphrey Bogart won a life time achievement award for this film. If any self respected actor gave the performance Mr. Bogart gave, they’d be run out of town. We’ve all seen it. I struggle to describe this movie when Josh swoops in to save the day.

In 1983 “Silkwood” and “Gorky Park” came out. If you’re going to go back and check out some movies from 1983, these are two great movies to start with. “Silkwood” is one of Meryl Streep’s more underestimated performances. It’s a heart breaking movie. “Gorky Park” has a terrible name, but it’s good too. On a side note Bon Jovi took a band named Gorky Park under their wing in the late 80’s but that didn’t last long.

Our Trailers are:

“Interstellar”

“Jupitar Ascending”

“Edge of Tomorrow”

“Bad Words”

“Godzilla”

“The Knights of Badassdom”

“The Fantastic Fear of Everything”

Three Grown Men Talking about One Direction (in 3D)

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Podcast. This week was all about One Direction. Three guys in their mid thirties talking about One Direction. There were other movies that came out this week, but I already forgot what they were. Unfortunately during the podcast we mention that the One Direction movie will get number one at the box office. Unfortunately for us, but fortunately for the human race Lee Daniels The Butler took down another week at number one making us incorrect…oh well.

One+Direction+3D
