Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we talk about The Forest and The Revenant. One of these is a throw away January release, the other just won the Golden Globe for Best Drama. The Revenant is a real masterpiece that is one of the hardest films to watch. Not in a Eli Roth or Rob Zombie I need to take a shower after seeing this way, but more in a being punched all over your body for three hours until it stops. It’s exhausting and it’s painful, but it’s worth it.
Our Top Five this week is movies featuring either Leonardo DiCaprio or Tom Hardy. We talk about Inception, The Revenant, The Departed, Locke, Bronson, Django, Mad Max Fury Road, The Dark Knight Rises and more.
In 1986 Black Moon Rising Came out.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. People are still dogging on “American Sniper” and I find it annoying as does Sean and Josh. Blackhat starring Australian Chris Hemsworth is not going to be released in Australia. Johnny Depp said he’s not going to piggy back off of his fame is to be a musician.
The biggest hit of the weekend is Jennifer Lopez in “The Boy Next Door.” She is not naked in this movie, but there is some impressive hidden nudity according to Sean, but that’s all there is to appreciate. Rob Cohen is the director and the movie is basically too competent to be bad but too bad to be good, so it sucks. If it wasn’t as competent as it is it could be fun bad.
Mordecai came out and turned out it was just about Johnny Depp’s mustache. The whole movie is dedicated to his mustache, which means it’s kind of boring. It’s not snappy, the pace sucks, the chemistry is lacking. Ewen McGregor is the only one who knows what movies he’s in.
George Lucas produced kind of a weird crappy movie called “Strange Magic.” It was a mess. Go ahead and skip this one. Disney released it, but didn’t even put their name on it.
Sean use to love Johnny Depp in “From Hell,” so he’s taking another look at it to see if it holds up. He wondered what he was thinking after revisiting it.
1985 – Fandango, Falcon and The Snowman came out.
