Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. We’ve had our first fight. It was over “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” Sean liked the movie a lot, Josh thought it was the best Spiderman movie period and I was kind of disappointed. The only thing all of us could agree on was that the ending was pretty bad ass. Then Sean and I saw “Walk of Shame.” Sean disliked this movie so much that it made him angry which made me like it that much more.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “The Conversation.” As Sean puts it, “The Conversation” was made by Francis Ford Coppola back when he still made good movies.
In 1984 Sixteen Candles, Hard Bodies, Breaking
