Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast where we do not talk about Star Wars. Instead we drove 3 hours to see Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. Then we decided to record the podcast in the car…I apologize if the sound isn’t as good as it normally is. Obviously we talk about The Hateful Eight but we also take on Concussion, The Big Short, Joy, Sisters and I think that’s it. Ultimately it was a good week for movies.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is Pulp Fiction
In 1985 we take a look at The Color Purple, Out of Africa and Brazil
Independence Day: Resurgence
Eddie the Eagle
The Legend of Tarzan
This week we’ve got three new movies this week, No Escape, We Are Friends, Diary of a Teenage Girl. No Escape and We Are Friends are kind of let downs. No Escape is a movie where you just really never believe the main characters are in danger, but you’re supposed to…i.e. the main characters don’t die, you know they’re not gonna die but your supposed to be scared for them…it’s a let down. We Are Friends is ok, but Wes Bentley is so good in the movie that whenever he’s not on the screen you just want more Wes Bentley and since he’s a small character you spend most of the time wishing he were there which is not good for this movie.
EVERYBODY GO SEE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL NOW. It’s a master piece of a movie and that really everybody should see. That said it’s borderline NC-17 and really uncomfortable…but it’s powerful
