The Critics Are Wrong, Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice is Good

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. On this 194th episode of the podcast we talk about Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice for the second time. We briefly talk about My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, but then we move onto our third annual March Movie Madness tournament. This year we took sixteen movies, some of which were suggested by the audience and between the three of us decided which movies moved on to the next round. The only requirement was that we had to pick movies we’d never talked about on the podcast before…or at least movies we don’t remember talking about.

The movies were:

Citizen Kane vs Paths of Glory
Swingers vs Gross Pointe Blank
Good Will Hunting vs Punch Drunk Love
LA Confidential vs The Verdict
Fargo vs O’ Brother Where Art Thou
Glengarry Glen Ross vs Hard Candy
Waking Live vs Monsieur Lazhar
The Silence of the Lambs vs Phantasm

Let us know where we messed up.

Three Middle Aged White Men Talk Feminism

0

This week we’ve got several new movies. Diane Keaton remade every other movie she’s made over the last ten years with Love the Coopers. Sean wasn’t thrilled. The 33 is a Lifetime like movie that made it to the theaters. It’s pretty good, but it’s not a very gritty story…it’s just warm and fuzzy. Suffragette was an ok that was supposed to be great about the early feminist movement. My All American is a Christian film that also happens to be the best film of the weekend. It’s Rudyesque but the direction is a little amateur. Knock Knock is the new Eli Roth film that is so bad it’s amazing. Keanu Reeves redefines bad acting. It’s actually so bad that it’s good. I Smile Back is the new Sarah Silverman movie. It’s not a comedy what so ever. Silverman is great in it, the movies great. It’ll probably end up on the outside looking in come award season, but that shouldn’t take anything away from this movie.

Suffragette

Top Five this week is Feminist movies.

For our Undisputed Classic this week is “Brian’s Song.”

In 1985 Once Bitten

Our trailers this week are:

Jaco

Rebel Adam Sandler is Ruining Good Movies Without A Cause

0

This weeks episode is a downer. Pixels disappoints, Southpaw & Paper Towns are to formulaic. Mr. Holmes is great but nobody has seen it. Adam Sandler is almost single handedly the only thing wrong with Pixels and that breaks my heart. I want to accuse Sean of being a dumb critics, but his audience didn’t even go and see Pixels so I can’t defend Sandler. Jake Gyllenhaal is amazing in Southpaw, but the movie is kind of dumb. It was written for Eminem and oddly enough would have been a better movie if Eminem was in the movie. It’s all Gyllenhaal’s fault. Paper Towns is fine. Again we’ve seen it before, it’s a formula. It’s forgettable which kind of makes it worse than a bad movie. At least its not Fault in Our Stars or something by Nicolas Sparks. Then there is Mr. Holmes starring Ian McKellan as Sherlock Holmes. Mr. Holmes is such a unique interesting movie that everyone should go see right now.

Our Undisputed Classic is Rebel Without A Cause. Sean explains why this movie has held up and is such a great classic. I had a hard time getting into it but I can’t argue against anything Sean says. He even does a pretty good job of explaining why I don’t think it holds up.

In 1985 European Vacation, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and Heavenly Kid

Our trailers this week are:

Freeheld
Queen of Elizabeth

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.

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Happy Valentines Day, did you enjoy “Robocop?” Oh you didn’t see it. Laurence Fishburne would be so disappointed in you. Let me guess, you either went to “The Lego Movie” (Bob did) or “About Last Night?” Yeah Kevin Hart’s pretty funny, I can’t say I blame you there.

You need to listen to Sean describe “Winter’s Tale” and tell me that doesn’t sound like the most magnificent thing you’ve ever heard of. In short its “Frozen” meets “Angel Heart.” There was one other movie but I forgot what it was.

Our undisputed classic is “Dr. Strangelove,” another Stanley Kubrick classic. I’ve decided that my favorite Kubrick movie is the last one I saw. How can “2001” not be your favorite? Well check out “The Shining,” but then check out “A Clockwork Orange” or “Dr. Strangelove.” Which one is the best? Right now since I just saw it “Dr. Strangelove.” It’s 50 years old and holds up better than most comedies and is strangely still relevant today.

This week in 1984 oops we skipped this segment, we’ll make it up to you next week I promise.

Our trailers this week are:

“Nymphomaniac Volume 1”
“Under the Skin”
“Brick Mansions”
“Drive Hard”
