This week we’ve got three new movies this week, American Ultra, Hitman: Agent 47 and Sinister 2. Nobody went and saw American Ultra, but I thought it looked really good and Sean had a lot of fun watching it. Hitman: Agent 47 was a lazy action movie and Sinister 2 was a lazy horror film. These two movies appear to be cash grabs and that’s just disappointing. The first Hitman movie wasn’t very good or successful so we’re not sure why they made a sequel, but Sinister was a solid horror film. It’s among one of the most profitable films of all time, so why not make a sequel? So they did.
Our Top Five this week is Top 5 horror sequels. We talk about Dawn of the Dead, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, Friday the 13th Part 2, Basket Case 2, It’s Alive 2, The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween 2, Amityville Horror 2, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows, Phantasm 2, Bride of Frankenstein, The Decent 2, Prometheus, Silence of the Lambs, Aliens.
Our Undisputed Classic is Carnival of Souls. It’s a movie that holds up largely due to the atmosphere it creates. The story itself doesn’t hold up but that’s because of movies like The Sixth Sense. There are so many twists in movies today that you can’t look back at a movie from 1962 and not figure out the twist within two minutes of this movie starting. That doesn’t make the movie bad, because it’s a fantastic movie.
In 1985 Teen Wolf, Better Off Dead, Gojira, Warning Signs, The Protector
Our trailers this week are:
The Final Girl
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.
It’s award season and the holiday season so a shit ton of movies came out. “The Interview” was the one we were all talking about and it sort of came out…on demand. “Unbroken” surprised the box office and may have injected some new life into itself. The “imitation Game” is a solid movie that would be better if it didn’t have so much hype behind it. “Into the Woods” flat out sucks and might be one of the worst movies of the year. “Big Eyes” is a solid effort by Tim Burton and “The Gambler” is a good movie that everybody has forgotten about.
This week Sean Defends his love for the Academy Award Winning “Chicago” which doesn’t really make sense but Josh and I don’t like musicals so we made him do it.
