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.

Who would have thought that in a year that includes an Avengers movie and a Star Wars movie that Jurassic World would have been the biggest movie of the year….so far? Jurassic World is one of the best monster movies I’ve seen in awhile. I was alone in thinking this however. Sean liked it but has it behind Furious 7, Avengers and Mad Max this year. In my opinion only Mad Max is better and more fun. Then there’s Josh who couldn’t not watch it as a scientific drama rather than a monster movie. His loss.

We also take a look at Kyle Smith’s article on how women can’t possibly comprehend Goodfellas. Obviously we disagree with him however what offends us more than his unintentionally sexist theme is his offensive take on Goodfellas comparing it to Entourage. Fuck you Kyle Smith.

The I Hate Critics podcast has been asked to be a part of Lebowski Fest in Milwaukee Wisconsin the weekend of Aug 21 and 22nd. Please if you’re in the area we’d love to hang out and get to know some of you.

Oscar Recap, Call Your Mom & Stay Weird

0

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.
