Critics Hath No Fury

Thanks for listening to the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we take on five new movies. The big movie this week is Brad Pitt and “Fury.” Josh and Sean both like it, but more on a graphic novel level than a war movie level, but Josh finally gets on the board in our fantasy game. The best movie of the weekend is the Guillermo del Toro produced kids movie “Book of Life.” Hopefully this movie can stick around during Oscar season.

“Best of Me” based on a Nicolas Sparks book is so bad Sean loves it. Jason Retiman’s “Men, Women, and Children” is actually pretty good. Sean was floored by it. Then there is a Christian movie with the cast of “Night Court” called “Matter of Faith.”

Our Defend It movie is “Summer of Sam.” Sean defends this against other critics. Josh and Bob for the most part watch it for the first time. Josh loved it and Bob just liked it.

In 1984 there are some forgettable movies and “The Razor’s Edge” with Bill Murray

Welcome to the bonus episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This episode “Sin City 2” came out and bombed. It was ok, but it did not do well. “If I Stay” came to play knocking “Ninja Turtles” to number three this week. “Guardians of the Galaxy” reclaimed the top spot. “When the Game Stands Tall” was a Christian football movie that wasn’t that annoying, in fact it’s actually pretty decent. We all know that God watches football religiously.

Our “Does it Hold Up” segment this week is “Braveheart.” This is a movie that explains the origin of the word FUCK as well as begin the first movie I (Bob) hoped would win the Oscar. 2 out of the 3 of us thought it held up and Sean’s stubborn.

In 1984 something came out, but I can’t remember what it was.

Zac Efron Good, Jason Reitman Bad

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. If you had told us that Zac Efron would be releasing a comedy opposite Jason Reitman’s new movie and that the Zac Efron comedy was good while the Jason Reitman movie was bad we may have killed you. Well that’s what happened. Jason Reitman finally struck out with “Labor Day” and Zac Efron was pretty decent in “That Awkward Moment.”

This episode of “I Hate Critics” was recorded before the terrible news about Phillip Seymour Hoffman, so we obviously did not address that horrible tragedy, but we will on next weeks episode.

Our undisputed classic is “Alphaville.” Josh caught “Alphaville” this week and really enjoyed it. It was a Sci-Fi twist on George Orwell’s “1984” and really ended up being the blueprint for films like “The Matrix” and “Dark City.”

Our trailers this week are:

Seth MacFarlanes “A Million Ways to Die in the West”
“Winter’s Tale”
“The Rover”
“Joe”/”Left Behind”
“The Zero Theorem”
