Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week not much came out. Will Smith made a con movie called Focus. It’s fine, but like most cons, the con is sloppy and it’s not necessarily entertaining enough to take your focus off of the con like “Oceans 11.” Then there was a horror film called “Lazarus Effect” that Josh hated so much he called it potentially the worst movie he’s ever seen.
Our beloved/hated film critic Sean Patrick had a near death experience this week. He had a massive asthma attack that put him in the hospital for six days. At one point he actually lost the ability to breath and had to have machines breath for him for several hours. He’s back and he’s doing better so hopefully he stays that way.
We lost Leonard Nimoy famous as Spock from “Star Trek.” RIP Spock, “Live long in prosper.”
The Academy Award winning film “Still Alice” also got released in theaters. Julianne Moore won best actress. Sean thinks it was a great performance, but had three or four other performances he preferred. Sean compared it to a Lifetime movie with great acting.
Our Undisputed Classic is “The Sting.” Stars Robert Redford and Paul Newman make “The Sting” highly entertaining. Josh loved it the most, Sean tried to pick it a part and Bob enjoyed it.
1985 – Several movies came out. The best two movies are Woody Allen’s “Purple Rose of Cairo,” and John Cusak in “The Sure Thing.”

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. We’ve got a brand new website, a brand new iTunes logo. We’re launching a campaign on iTunes to get more ratings and reviews. If you rate and review our podcast you’ll be entered into a contest where you can win:
An autographed DVD of “Cadaver Christmas”
Jeff Bridges and the Abider’s Live CD
A Movie poster from A24 Distribution
Two tickets to the movie of your choice
We will also give out five additional signed copies of “A Cadaver Christmas” as well as the the chance to produce a bonus episode. What does that mean? It means you decide the movies we talk about.
and if we can get 100 reviews we’ll throw in a year long subscription to Netflix.
This week “Dumb and Dumber To” came out and knocked “Big Hero 6” out of the top spot. We also got the chance to see “Birdman.” Sean also had to watch Kirk Camerson’s “Saving Christmas.” Then we may or may not talk about a movie called “Beyond the Lights.” See I’m writing these notes before we ever recorded the podcast this week, so we will see.
Since we got to see “Birdman” this week we decided to ask, does 1989’s “Batman” hold up?
