This week we’ve got three new movies. Goosebumps won the weekend but it could’ve been better. Guillermo Del Toro disappoints with Crimson Peak. It’s good, but should’ve been great. Then there was Steve Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies. It was far and away the best movie of the weekend. Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are on their way to Academy Award nominations.
Top Five this week Steven Spielberg movies. We talk Shindler’s List, Jaws, Jurassic Park, E.T., Minority Report, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Saving Private Ryan.
Rather than an Undisputed Classic we decided to challenge ourselves by checking out a Steven Spielberg film we hadn’t seen which included Duel, Munich and The Terminal…Sean’s seen The Terminal but he doesn’t like it so we made him watch it again.
In 1985 we take on The Stuff and Reanimator
Our trailers this week are:
Kill Your Friends
He Never Died
Jurassic World is still destroying the box office but that didn’t stop Inside Out from being the second biggest Pixar opening of all time. Inside Out was loved by all three of us. It was so much that both Sean and Josh are considering calling it the best movie of the year so far. That’s saying a lot with Cinderella, Ex Machina, and Love and Mercy already out this year not to mention Mad Max: Fury Road, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Jurassic World kicking ass as blockbusters.
Dope is an indie film that did well on the festival circuit. Sean really enjoyed the movie and recommends it. Then there was Love and Mercy, the Brian Wilson story. What an intriguing movie. It may be my favorite film of the year thus far. Needless to say it was a good week for movies. If you don’t know the Brian Wilson story then this is a must see, hell even if you know it you’ll be impressed…I say that as someone who knew the story.
We asked our audience their top five favorite Pixar movies. Among those chosen was Up, Wall-E, Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, Toy Story 3, Cars, The Incredibles etc.
Our Undisputed Classic was “Being John Malkovich.” This is one of the more underrated films of the 90’s. It’s beloved and it holds up but it’s become second fiddle to movies like Pulp Fiction and The Big Lebowski and it doesn’t need to. It’s a phenomenal movie with phenomenal performances.
1985 – Cocoon, Lifeforce, Return to Oz
Kung Fu Panda 3
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.
This week the terrorists won. The terrorist convinced Sony and several theater owners to pull the release of “The Interview” from our theaters this Christmas. It’s a disappointment. Then several indie theaters wanted to show “Team America: World Police” and Paramount pulled that so whatever. The Critics Choice Nominations were out. Josh and I poke fun of the award show and Sean doesn’t laugh.
“The Hobbit” is finally over so we never have to talk about that again…until they turn 30 years old. It won the weekend, but Josh and Sean disliked it. “Annie” came out and Sean thought it was a disaster. Then “Night at the Museum 3” came out and nobody noticed.
This week Sean asks us to Defend “Willow” but I asked Josh if it held up. It did for me, it did not for Josh. Then Josh went on to describe what was wrong with “Willow” and all he did was say awesome things about it.
1984 – Johnny Dangerously, Breakin 2 Electric Boogaloo

Thanks for listening to the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we take on five new movies. The big movie this week is Brad Pitt and “Fury.” Josh and Sean both like it, but more on a graphic novel level than a war movie level, but Josh finally gets on the board in our fantasy game. The best movie of the weekend is the Guillermo del Toro produced kids movie “Book of Life.” Hopefully this movie can stick around during Oscar season.
“Best of Me” based on a Nicolas Sparks book is so bad Sean loves it. Jason Retiman’s “Men, Women, and Children” is actually pretty good. Sean was floored by it. Then there is a Christian movie with the cast of “Night Court” called “Matter of Faith.”
Our Defend It movie is “Summer of Sam.” Sean defends this against other critics. Josh and Bob for the most part watch it for the first time. Josh loved it and Bob just liked it.
In 1984 there are some forgettable movies and “The Razor’s Edge” with Bill Murray
In the Heart of the Sea
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast, a movie podcast. What do movie critics hate more than anything? Adam Sandler and tornados with sharks in them. What do idiot like Bob Zerull and this weeks guest Patrick Fineran (The Vampire Diaries Podcast) love more than anything? Tornados with sharks in them.
This week professional film critic Sean Patrick was truly upset that the movie Grown Ups 2 was made and even more upset that people went to see it. He was really bothered by the low brow humor. So Bob and this weeks guest filled the podcast with low brow humor…sorry Sean.
This weeks trailers.
Saving Mr. Banks
Out of the Furnace
