Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon 2: Sword of Destiny
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
On this episode of I Hate Critics we’ve got three new movies: Magic Mike XXL, Terminator Genisys, Me & Earl & the Dying Girl. Both Sean and I loved Magic Mike XXL, it was a lot of fun. It kind of makes you want to be a male stripper. The joy they had making this movie comes back off the screen. Shelby and Beth were having fun as well. Me & Earl & the Dying Girl is completely awesome. It’s essentially The Fault in Our Stars done properly. Terminator Genisys is fun but that pisses Josh off because it should be more serious and not fun. I’m paraphrasing because Josh isn’t here to defend himself.
Our Undisputed Classic is Donnie Darko. In sticking with our time travel theme (not our male stripper theme) we went with Donnie Darko and it’s a movie that is just amazing and if you mix the book in with it is even better.
In 1985 Back to the Future came out. The biggest movie of 1985. $200 million in 1985, that’s amazing.
Our trailers this week are:
Secret in their Eyes
On this episode of I Hate Critics two new movies were released. Ted 2 and Max. Both are underwhelming but Max more so than Ted 2. Ted 2 is just disappointing because Ted was so great. Like typical Seth Macfarlane Ted 2 has a handful of really funny moments mixed with lots of down time. It’s every bodies biggest complaint with Macfarlane. He’s funny but he can’t put a story together. Just ask the guys from South Park. Josh did like it a little more than Sean did. Max on the other hand is just a waste of time and money. Marine dog gets sent up because his owner dies and is now living with his owners little brother as they try to save the day against something. I started to zone out a little.
In the news:
R.I.P. James Horner,
Rose Mcgowan fired by her agent for calling out the casting director of an Adam Sandler movie because they gave her notes to show up to the audition with lots of cleavage visible.
Tom Holland is the new Spiderman
Ben Affleck may direct the next Batman movie
Our Undisputed Classic is Harvey starring Jimmy Stewart. Jimmy Stewart proves once again that he’s one of the greatest actors of all time.
In 1985 Clint Eastwood turns the western genre on its head with Pale Rider by subtly introducing a supernatural element to the western. Then St. Elmos Fire and Red Sonia came out as well.
Our trailers this week are:
Hitman: Agent 47
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. One of the worst movies in the history of movies was released in theaters this week and that is “Black or White.” This movie has great talent like Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer in it, looking like they’ve never acted a day in their lives. Director Mike Binder shit the bed on this one and made everyone involved looked foolish.
However one of the 5 or 10 best movies of the year “A Most Violent Year” also came out and saved the weekend. You’ve got the future of Hollywood in in this movie with Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain and David Oyelowo. Let’s not forget about Albert Brooks who is amazing as well. This movie deserved to be nominated for an Oscar.
Then there were two other forgettable movies that came out called “The Loft” and “Project Almanac.”
This weeks Undisputed Classic is Oscar winner “In the Heat of the Night.” We picked this movie because we thought it’d be a movie about race in 1967 since 1) this is the whitest Oscar season in a very long time 2) “Black or White” came out and we didn’t know it’d suck that bad. “In The Heat of the Night” won the Oscar but it’s star Sidney Poitier wasn’t nominated, instead supporting star Rod Steiger was nominated for the lead performance and I believe won. Hollywood is so stupid. This movie is OK, the tv show really sucked and affected my opinion.
1985 – “Heavenly Bodies” came out and it’s a dance competition musical or something like that, but most importantly there are boobs in it.
The Fantastic Four
The Madame Bovery
