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.

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 Movie Review Podcast. This week the movies from last week topped the box office, but McFarland USA, The Duff and Hot Tub Time Machine 2 came out. Josh and I watched “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” We can’t really complain about it as much as we’d like to. It’s not made for us but we’re happy that it exists. Then Josh finally saw “Foxcatcher.” He had a similar reaction Sean and I did. Therefore we recommend you go see it.

Field Of Dreams

In place of the Defend It segment, we’re each going to challenge a year we feel got it wrong and defend our reasoning.

Rocky

Josh takes on 1976 (“Rocky” vs “Network” & “All The President’s Men,” I took on 1994 “Pulp Fiction” vs “Forrest Gump” and Sean took on 1989 “Driving Ms. Daisy” vs “Dead Poet’s Society”

Pulp Fiction

1985 – Into the Night came out. That’s all, it came out
