Undisputed Classic: J.F.K.
1986 Blue Velvet, The Men’s Club
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. One of the worst movies in the history of movies was released in theaters this week and that is “Black or White.” This movie has great talent like Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer in it, looking like they’ve never acted a day in their lives. Director Mike Binder shit the bed on this one and made everyone involved looked foolish.
However one of the 5 or 10 best movies of the year “A Most Violent Year” also came out and saved the weekend. You’ve got the future of Hollywood in in this movie with Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain and David Oyelowo. Let’s not forget about Albert Brooks who is amazing as well. This movie deserved to be nominated for an Oscar.
Then there were two other forgettable movies that came out called “The Loft” and “Project Almanac.”
This weeks Undisputed Classic is Oscar winner “In the Heat of the Night.” We picked this movie because we thought it’d be a movie about race in 1967 since 1) this is the whitest Oscar season in a very long time 2) “Black or White” came out and we didn’t know it’d suck that bad. “In The Heat of the Night” won the Oscar but it’s star Sidney Poitier wasn’t nominated, instead supporting star Rod Steiger was nominated for the lead performance and I believe won. Hollywood is so stupid. This movie is OK, the tv show really sucked and affected my opinion.
1985 – “Heavenly Bodies” came out and it’s a dance competition musical or something like that, but most importantly there are boobs in it.
The Fantastic Four
The Madame Bovery
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. So this week “Transformers 4” came out. It’s not a fun week for movie snobs. Sean had to see, God knows why Josh wasted the time and money to go see it. Apparently he loves this podcast more than I or he just likes to be angry. We did see a couple of other movies. Josh saw “Enemy” and he was super excited to talk about it.
This weeks Undisputed Classic is the Marilyn Monroe film “Some Like it Hot.” I call it a Marilyn Monroe film because her name is all over the cover, but really it’s a Tony Curtis and Jack Lemon film. Josh and Sean were quit to call it a classic. I was ok calling it a classic, but only if we’re going to treat movies like “Dumb and Dumber” and “Tommy Boy” etc etc like this 50 years from now.
In 1984 teenage boys were introduced to Tawny Kitaen. It took me another ten years, but i got there. “Bachelor Party” came out. Who cares that Tom Hanks was in this movie because Tawny Kitaen was the most beautiful woman in the world back in the 80’s and that’s all that mattered. Plus “Cannonball Run 2” and “Conan the Destroyer” came out.
The Fury – Brad Pitt
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The Prince – Jason Patrick, Bruce Willis, John Cusak
Into the Storm
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Seth Rogen’s new movie “The Neighbors” was released, Josh and Sean went to see it and both said it’s a great start to the summer comedy season. They both all ranked it among Seth Rogen’s finest films which is exciting. Also released this week is “The Legends of Oz” which is nothing more than a cash grab…oh well.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Chinatown.” “Chinatown” is truly one of the greatest films ever made, it’s incredible that both Josh and I had never seen it. Jack Nicholson is in top form.
In 1984 “The Natural,” “Fire Starter”
Trailers this week:
The Night in Old Mexico
A Million Days to Die in the West
Atlas Shrugged 3
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. There wasn’t a whole lot going on in the theater so we did about a seven minute intro talking about random shit like the new “Fantastic Four” movie and an African American man taking a job from a white man, “Space Jam 2,” “The Raid” remake, the devil looking like Barack Obama. We also talk about Warner Bros ripping off “Veronica Mars” fans. There was a ridiculous poll regarding the new “Noah” movie coming out that asks people of faith if they would watch a “Noah” movie created in Hollywood? Finally Harvey Weinstein accuses Sean of not thinking for himself when he reviewed “August: Osage County.”
Yes there were movies that came out this week. “3 Days to Kill” continues Kevin Costner’s 2013/2014 come back, unfortunately the movie is not great. McG directed the film and it’s a dark comedy where Kevin Costner plays John Cusak. Why not just get John Cusak? “Pompeii” is Pomposterous. Since we didn’t have any good movies Bob and Sean argue over “Dallas Buyer’s Club.” Sean couldn’t see past Matthew McConaughey’s weight loss while Bob could. There wasn’t much more to talk about because well that was it.
Our undisputed classic is “The Professional.” Josh immediately decides it’s not an undisputed classic followed by Sean’s agreement. Bob liked the movie the most but not passionately enough to defend it. Then we discuss why people love this movie. Was it the style, the violence or the characters?
This week in 1984, well actually last week in 1984 “Footloose” came out and is an undisputed classic…although the soundtrack has outlived the movie. The remake didn’t work but largely because it’s impossible for a small town to isolate itself from the rest of the world. They should have done the remake in a third world country.
Our trailers this week are:
“Guardians of the Galaxy”
“In This Blood”
“Anchorman 2” Rated R
“Legends of the Knight”
