We’ve got five new movies this week: The Fantastic Four, Ricki and the Flash, Shaun the Sheep, The Gift, and Irrational Man. The Fantastic Four was boring and poorly directed but the director blames the studio and oh yeah Josh liked it. Both The Gift and an Irrational Man are must sees according Sean. I wish I could go see both of these. Sean sold them well. Rick and the Flash received mixed reviews on the show. Sean really disliked it and Josh really liked it. Because of Ricki and the Flash we asked our audience what their top five favorite movies about rock n roll. Included in those lists is Almost Famous, Once, This is Spinal Tap, Rock n Roll High School, High Fidelity, School of Rock, The Runaways, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Blues Brothers, The Harder They Come, Begin Again, La Bamba, Empire Records and The Doors.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Wait what’s this? Two episodes in one day? Yes, It’s our bonus Thanksgiving episode. This year we reached out to three of my favorite podcasts to help us out.
Pod on Pod (www.podonpod.com) – This podcast reviews others podcasts. There are hundreds of thousands of podcasts out there and these guys help pick out the good ones for you. I found out about them when they reviewed the Ivy Envy podcast and have since subscribed to their show.
Handicap This (www.handicapthis.com) – Mike and Tim’s podcast “The G.I.M.P. Show” has quickly become one of my favorites. Corey Fineran told me to check it out. I had no idea what it was and I just found myself falling in love with the show it’s both informative and entertaining.
The Awesome 80’s Podcast (www.theawesome80s.net) – This podcast celebrates the 80’s. Josh, Sean and I grew up in the 80’s as did Michael and Lawrence. Their show is a lot of fun. Each episode use to be about a stand alone movie, but 200 plus episodes in they’ve expanded to interviews and beyond. It’s a fun show be sure to check it out.
