On this episode we look at the best films of the last decade. David Fincher and Ari Aster dominate our lists. A24 is well represented…so much so that we decided to do a separate A24 top ten.
Movies we list: Midsommar, The Social Network, Gravity, Cloud Atlas, Gone Girl, Enemy, Hereditary, Under the Skin, BlackKklansman, The Big Sick, Lady Bird etc etc.
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. We’ve got a brand new website, a brand new iTunes logo. We’re launching a campaign on iTunes to get more ratings and reviews. If you rate and review our podcast you’ll be entered into a contest where you can win:
An autographed DVD of “Cadaver Christmas”
Jeff Bridges and the Abider’s Live CD

We will also give out five additional signed copies of “A Cadaver Christmas” as well as the the chance to produce a bonus episode. What does that mean? It means you decide the movies we talk about.
and if we can get 100 reviews we’ll throw in a year long subscription to Netflix.
This week “Dumb and Dumber To” came out and knocked “Big Hero 6” out of the top spot. We also got the chance to see “Birdman.” Sean also had to watch Kirk Camerson’s “Saving Christmas.” Then we may or may not talk about a movie called “Beyond the Lights.” See I’m writing these notes before we ever recorded the podcast this week, so we will see.
Since we got to see “Birdman” this week we decided to ask, does 1989’s “Batman” hold up?
1984 – Missing in Action, Night of the Comet
A Most Violent Year
The Imitation Game
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week Sean and Josh see “Maleficent” and Sean and I see “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” The verdict is Jolie good, MacFarlane bad (Sean still thought he was funny). I’m not sure when, but at some point in the show I claim I can kick Denzel Washington’s ass…not sure how that even came up.
The Undisputed Classic is back and this week it’s arguably the best western of all time “Once Upon A Time in the West.” All three of love this movie.
In 1984 “Once Upon a Time in America” and “Star Trek III” came out.
This is Where I Leave You
Kill the Messenger
The Green Inferno
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
Trailers this week:
The Came Together
What We Do in the Shadows
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast – Special Oscar Edition. The Oscars just ended and we just finished recording our recap. Gravity wins all the technical awards, “Dallas Buyer’s Club” wins all the acting awards and “12 Years a Slave” wins Best Picture.
Why do we watch the Oscars? How do you define the best? My favorite movie was “American Hustle,” but is it better than “12 Years a Slave?” How do you answer that? Overall I was happy with the winners, but I would have been happy if the night went in a completely different direction most likely.
We spend a lot of time talking about “12 Years a Slave” and it really affected all three of us. Slavery was the American Holocaust and we never refer to it that way. Sean points out that there are pictures of slave owners on our money…still. Hitler’s not on any money in Germany…think about that.
There were great moments on Sunday night. Lupita Nyong’o’s acceptance speech was amazing. Matthew McConaughey’s was a lot of fun. Jared Leto was great. Ellen was funny, but the show was too long. Too many pointless montages, too many pointless musical numbers. The big losers of the night were John Travolta and Bette Midler. Let’s not forget about Kim Novak’s Face.
