Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Are you interested in a new “Ghostbusters” Universe? Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd are interested. There’s lots of “Star Wars” news. There are several sequel rumors floating around including “Frozen,” “ Zoolander” and “Mallrats.” Tim Burton is going to make a live action “Dumbo” movie. Jamie Foxx claims he’s going to play Mike Tyson in a Martin Scorsese movie. Sarah Jones finally received some justice.
This weeks big release was “Cinderella.” It made $70 million and everybody loves it. Sean even said that this movie wasn’t made for him and he still loved it. Josh watched the movie alone in an emptry theater at 10:40 pm. Just saying. The “Frozen” short in front of “Cinderella” was pretty good too.
Liam Neeson has a new action movie out. We once again discuss beating up Liam Neeson and Ed Harris, but not Vincent D’onofrio. Sean caught a documentary called “The Wrecking Crew” about probably the most important group of American musicians is the 50’s & 60’s.
Our Undisputed Classic is Ingmar Bergman’s “The Seventh Seal.” This movie sounds amazing; I wish I got the chance to see it. It’s been ripped off a million times.
1985 – “Def-Con 4” and “Sylvester”

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we mourn the loss of Paul Walker by asking our in house critic how he mourns actors he’s said horrible things about. We then jump into the Nelson Mandela bio pic and talk Wonder Woman before discussing how they move forward with “Fast 7.”
All three of us managed to get to the theater for “Out of the Furnace” and we all felt upbeat when the flick was over. It’s one of the most grim, bleak, depressing movies out there, but it’s compelling. I can’t describe how good it was like Sean can so turn the podcast on and listen. There are no spoilers in this segment, but when we talk “All is Lost” we do spoil it however it sounds like the ending is open to interpretation.
Our Undisputed Classic was “Duck Soup” from The Marx Brothers. Josh and Sean giggled like school girls talking about this one. I felt left out, so I just thought about how all the character’s in this movie had the same name as the characters in “The Devil’s Rejects,” which was something Roger Ebert loved.
In 1983 “Scarface” and “Sudden Impact” came out. We tear into “Scarface” as none of us like that movie. I think it’s long and boring, Josh doesn’t like that it’s hanging up on the walls of dumbasses and Sean doesn’t understand why so many people worship this movie, he dies in a pile of cocaine and wants to sleep with his sister. Now “Sudden Impact?” Great fun film.
Our Trailers are:
“The Amazing Spiderman 2”
