Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we have two new movies to talk about. There’s another Nicolas Sparks movie, which is basically his greatest hits. I was expecting Sean to be meaner to it. Instead he was meaner to “Woman in Gold.”
Ryan Reynolds is completely miscast in his role in “Woman in Gold.” I love that Ryan Reynolds is always trying to take roles outside the box, but when you do that it doesn’t always work. Not to mention that there is a lot of fat on this movie and would clearly work better as a documentary.
Don’t forget to pick which fantasy team to throw your support behind. Currently I’m in the lead with over $200,000,000 earned to Sean and Josn’s $0.
Our Undisputed Classic is the sappy “An Affair to Remember.” Josh was able to put himself in his parents or grand parents mind set and enjoy the film while I resisted that possibility and found myself bored. That said if I described the movie to you you’d think it’s pretty good.
In 1985 “Ladyhawke,” “Cat’s Eye,” “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” and “Fraternity Vacation.” Now I love teen sex comedies more than most but “Fraternity Vacation” is just disgusting to me. The women in the movies don’t even have characters. They just show their boobs and then disappear. That doesn’t make the other movies I like ok, but this one is just too misogynist for me. It’s amazing Tim Robbins went on to have a career after this.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. People are still dogging on “American Sniper” and I find it annoying as does Sean and Josh. Blackhat starring Australian Chris Hemsworth is not going to be released in Australia. Johnny Depp said he’s not going to piggy back off of his fame is to be a musician.
The biggest hit of the weekend is Jennifer Lopez in “The Boy Next Door.” She is not naked in this movie, but there is some impressive hidden nudity according to Sean, but that’s all there is to appreciate. Rob Cohen is the director and the movie is basically too competent to be bad but too bad to be good, so it sucks. If it wasn’t as competent as it is it could be fun bad.
Mordecai came out and turned out it was just about Johnny Depp’s mustache. The whole movie is dedicated to his mustache, which means it’s kind of boring. It’s not snappy, the pace sucks, the chemistry is lacking. Ewen McGregor is the only one who knows what movies he’s in.
George Lucas produced kind of a weird crappy movie called “Strange Magic.” It was a mess. Go ahead and skip this one. Disney released it, but didn’t even put their name on it.
Sean use to love Johnny Depp in “From Hell,” so he’s taking another look at it to see if it holds up. He wondered what he was thinking after revisiting it.
1985 – Fandango, Falcon and The Snowman came out.
