Undisputed Classic: The Stratton Story

Chasing Tusk #WalrusYes

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast. We watched four new films this week. We start with Kevin Smith’s new film “Tusk.” We’re spilt 2 loving it to 1 not loving it. It’s one of our better conversations. Then there is “The Maze Runner,” “A Walk Among the Tombstones, & “This is Where I Leave You.”

Sticking with the Kevin Smith theme our “Does it Hold Up” film is “Chasing Amy.” It’s one of the best movies I have ever seen yet doesn’t get the credit it deserves.

In 1984 the Academy Award winning film “Amadeus” came out.

The Only One I Love

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast. This episode we talk about three new movies “As Above So Below,” “November Man” and “The One I Love.” Two of these movies received a theatrical release one did not. Two of these movies are dumb, one is not. Guess which one? “The One I Love” is great.

This week I (Bob) had to defend my hatred for “Vanilla Sky” or as I like to call it “Pretentious Sky.” I whole heartedly disagree with everything Sean and Josh say about this movie. But aside from attacking their character by calling them Tom Cruise apologists with a hard on for Cameron Crowe there is nothing I can say to change their mind.

In 1984 “C.H.U.D.” came out along with a couple other movies. Listener Jason from New Mexico has been on us to see this film since we started this podcast. Sean enjoyed how bad it was, I was on the internet the whole time while watching it and Josh fell asleep.

Does “Crash” Still Suck?

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Three new movies were released this Fourth of July weekend. Melissa McCarthy’s “Tammy” came out to a mixed reaction. Sean and I both enjoyed the film, however the trailers were selling us on a different movie then “Tammy” ended up being…oh well. “Deliver Us From Evil” turned out to be just another possession movie, but a fairly competent one. Finally “Earth to Echo” kind of missed with the whole found footage thing, but I’m sure kids will like it.

This weeks “Does it Hold Up” film is Paul Haggis’ “Crash.” This is my least favorite movie of all time. Both Sean and Josh initially praised this film. After rewatching the film they were both disappointed in themselves for initially liking the movie. They both did a good job of explaining why they were tricked. Seriously this movie is a giant piece of crap and it actually sucks more now than it did when I originally saw it.

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week Aaron Paul tries to cash in on his “Breaking Bad” success by ripping off “Fast and the Furious” and taking all the fun out of it. In an attempt to not spend a dime Warner Bros released “Veronica Mars” in AMC theaters only and on demand. Despite the lack of interest Warner Bros has in it, the movie is pretty good…as good as the television show.

Tyler Perry’s career seems to take another step closer to the end, but lucky for him he’s loaded. With “Single Mom’s Club” he takes on the hot button issue of single moms. All they need is a man right? We took in two documentaries this week. Sean saw “The Secret Lives of Jean Seberg” which was the heart-breaking story of how the US government ruined this woman’s life. She was an actor from Iowa, became an activist for the Black Panthers and was ultimately destroyed by the FBI. Then Bob and Josh watched “As the Palaces Burn.” The film was about the rock band Lamb of God who were just filming a simple documentary to go along with their newest album when the lead single was arrested for murder in Croatia.

Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Tokyo Story.” Sean had ripped into Josh and I for not trying very hard, so Josh tried real hard and watched possibly one of the greatest films of all time

In 1984 nothing of substance came out so we talked about this unbelievable article about the making of the “Street Fighter” movie starring Jean Claude Van Damme. It was a fascinating article, check it out here. http://www.polygon.com/features/2014/3/10/5451014/street-fighter-the-movie-what-went-wrong
