Hidden Netflix Gems

Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we had five new movies. The Oscar nominated Room was rereleased wide this week, Kung Fu Panda 3 exceeds low expectations and The Finest Hours is the real deal…except non of you saw it.  Jane Got a Gun isn’t a bad movie and why do the let the Wayan Brothers keep making these terrible parody movies?

This week we’ve got three new movies this week, No Escape, We Are Friends, Diary of a Teenage Girl. No Escape and We Are Friends are kind of let downs. No Escape is a movie where you just really never believe the main characters are in danger, but you’re supposed to…i.e. the main characters don’t die, you know they’re not gonna die but your supposed to be scared for them…it’s a let down. We Are Friends is ok, but Wes Bentley is so good in the movie that whenever he’s not on the screen you just want more Wes Bentley and since he’s a small character you spend most of the time wishing he were there which is not good for this movie.

EVERYBODY GO SEE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL NOW. It’s a master piece of a movie and that really everybody should see. That said it’s borderline NC-17 and really uncomfortable…but it’s powerful

Equal Pay for Women

Captain America 3: Cival War casted.
Women are under paid in Hollywood

This week only one new movie came out and it was “Hot Pursuit” starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. It’s not a great movie but that mixed with a series of articles lead us to the discussion of equal pay for women in Hollywood. We try to explain why they’re not paid equally but ultimately come back to the fact that they should be. It’s not just Hollywood, it’s all over the world, but why not start in Hollywood at least.

HotPursuit

Our Undisputed Classic was actually a Cult Classic Guantlet that Sean laid down before Josh and I. We were tasked to check out the Netflix Cult Classic section and each check out a movie for the first time. Sean loved “Goon,” I appreciated and “Reanimator” and Josh loathed “Wet Hot American Summer” despite the fact that both Sean and I love the flick.

1985 – Nothing of note came out in 1985

Trailers:

San Andreas
Fifty Shades of Gray Honest Trailer
Human Centipede 3
Magic Mike XXL

“Bad Grandpa” Breaks “The Counselor’s” Windshield

0

Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. This week will go down as a rather forgettable week in movie history. The most memorable thing that happened was that “Bad Grandpa” barely knocked “Gravity” out of the number one box office slot for a week. Ridley Scott & Cormac McCarthy missed the boat on “The Counselor.” They didn’t make a movie as much as they filmed a series of monologues…and Cameron Diaz doing something to a car.

This episode it was me (Bob Zerull), Film Critic Sean Patrick, Josh Adams from the Film Fan Perspective.

The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “Night of the Living Dead.” Sean made his way to a Rifftrax screening. He enjoyed himself, but the boys at Rifftrax ruined “Night of the Living Dead” for him.

In movie news George Clooney’s “Monuments Men” got bumped to 2014. Bruce Campbell confirmed “Army of Darkness 2,” Tom Hardy is going to play Elton John and there is a new actor in the role of Christian Gray (or however you spell his last name), but we don’t know who he is and we don’t really care.

Check out our trailers this week: “Captain America: The Winder Soldier,” “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” “Wolf Creek 2,” “The Neighbors,” “Skinwalker Ranch,” “Devils Due,” and “Homefront”
