The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking (Tami Erin): After her father’s ship is carried off by a sudden storm, the spunky Pippi Longstocking is stranded with her horse, Alfonso, and monkey, Mr. Nilsson, and takes up residence in the old family home, which is thought by neighborhood children to be haunted. Soon, two children, Tommy and Annika, venture into the house only to meet up with Pippi. The three soon become friends and get into various adventures together, including cleaning the floor with scrubbing shoes, dodging the “splunks”, going down a river in barrels, and helping Pippi with the problem of having to go to a children’s home.

Aliens turns 30 this week and the new Ghostbusters comes out. So we’ve decide that we’re going to take a look back on the four Alien films and the original 2 Ghostbuster films.
Do the movies hold up? Are they classics? How will they fare in our Flickchart challenge.
Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we talk about The Forest and The Revenant. One of these is a throw away January release, the other just won the Golden Globe for Best Drama. The Revenant is a real masterpiece that is one of the hardest films to watch. Not in a Eli Roth or Rob Zombie I need to take a shower after seeing this way, but more in a being punched all over your body for three hours until it stops. It’s exhausting and it’s painful, but it’s worth it.
Our Top Five this week is movies featuring either Leonardo DiCaprio or Tom Hardy. We talk about Inception, The Revenant, The Departed, Locke, Bronson, Django, Mad Max Fury Road, The Dark Knight Rises and more.
In 1986 Black Moon Rising Came out.
The Conjuring 2
Free State of Jones
Elvis & Nixon
Thanks for listening to the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week “St. Vincent” finally came out and it was good. It probably could have been better, but it was as good as it was because of Bill Murray. America disappointed us by going to see “Ouija.” Keanu Reeve’s “John Wick” is actually pretty good.
Our “Does it Hold Up” Movie is “The Blair Witch Project.” This movie is completely polarizing. Sean and Bob consider this one of the great horror movies of all time while Josh hates it. We have some fun with this.
In 1984 “The Terminator” came out.
Avengers 2: Age of Ultron
