Undisputed Classic: Clerks
This week we have one and a half movies. Krampus came out and Sean disliked it and Josh liked it, imagine that. Then we have the documentary about Cannon Films called Electric Boogaloo. It is fantastic, it is a lot of fun, it’s on Netflix. You should watch it now.
Our Top Five are Christmas Themed Horror films and we talk: Black Christmas, Santa’s Slay, Silent Night Deadly Night, Gremlins, Rare Exports, P2, Child’s Play, Edward Scissorhands, Christmas Evil,
For our Undisputed Classic we take on Black Christmas
We skip 1985
Our trailers this week are:
Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice
I Saw the Light
The Nice Guys
“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.

Jupiter Ascending Honest Trailer
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Tribute to Jean Claude Van Damme Podcast. This week “Catching Fire” won the box office, but Frozen did great and could even get nominated for an Oscar, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad and Idina Menzel perform some of the best songs in a Disney movie since “The Lion King.” The movie looks great in 2D but in 3D its pinnacle.
Possibly the best movie of the weekend, “Homefront.” “Homefront” is about southern red neck justice, but James Franco tries too hard, he’s just supposed to be there to get punched, instead he acts. This movie annoys Josh. Sean is somewhat impressed with the heart in the songs from “Black Nativity.” You can feel Jennifer Hudson’s pain when she sings so much so that we feel that’s the reason she got kicked out of “American Idol” as soon as she did.
Sean got to see “Her” and Josh and I weren’t too happy about that because we want to see it. This movie and the performances should be around when the award time comes; unfortunately Scarlett Johansson is not eligible for the Golden Globe, but who cares The Golden Globes is a joke anyway. It’s an interesting question to ask namely because that’s the same question raised throughout this movie.
Penn & Teller produced a film called Tim’s Vermeer. A man named Tim Jenison became obsessed with the 17th century painter Johannes Vermeer. Jenison who never painted in his life uses the same strategy as Vermeer used (which is essentially tracing),it’s still art, but Carrot Top is still a comic.
Our Undisputed Classic was “The Godfather” largely due to the fact that it was Thanksgiving weekend and we released two podcasts last week. Plus “The Godfather” is on everything Thanksgiving. We lazily talk about it, but we still talk about it.
In 1983 John Carpenter’s “Christine” came out. While it was successful at the time I feel like it’s one of Carpenter’s underrated films. “Halloween,” “Escape from New York” and “The Thing” are great, but I think “Christine” is really good.
Our Trailers are:
Enemies Closer – It looks so bad it’s probably fantastic
Welcome to the Jungle – dumb
Bella Kiss Prologue – Dumb movie impressive trailer considering how dumb the movie looks. It’s getting released to You Tube.
Hercules The Legend Begins – Dumb
Son of God – Jesus looks really good
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty – I really want to see it
