“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. Sadly we’re already at the halfway point of 2014, where did the time go? The three of us discuss our top movies so far of 2014. Common films in the top five included “Enemy,” “Under the Skin,” and “Chef.” As well as “Captain American” and “Cheap Thrills.” Other than that it hasn’t been the greatest year in movies.
Continuing with that trend is Clint Eastwood’s “Jersey Boys” which contains many magical moments but in between those magical moments is a lot of down time. At least we got the very entertaining “Think Like A Man Too,” a pretty bad movie with a great cast to make up for it.
On this weeks Does it Hold Up segment we discuss “The English Patient.” Sadly we all agree that it’s probably a good movie, we just don’t like watching it…does that even make sense?
This week in 1984 “The Karate Kid” was released. Along with “The Karate Kid” was “Rhinestone” and “The Pope of Greenwich Village.”

Dear White People
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”

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
