Welcome to the I Hate Critics Bonus Thanksgiving episode. This year we brought in four podcasts to help us out and talk about the movies they are most thankful for.
We got the help from:
Chris Jericho of “Talk is Jericho”
Jason Bryant from the “Short Time Wrestling Podcast”
Wayne Henderson from the “Voice Over Journey Podcast” and “The Packers Fan Podcast”
and our friends at the Sci Fi Movie Podcast
We talk about several movies including: Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, Planes Trains and Automobiles, His Girl Friday, The Crow, The Philadelphia Story, Tusk, Somewhere in Time, The Matrix, Crash, A History of Violence, Star Trek 6: The Undiscovered Country, No Country for Old Men, The Shawshank Redemption, Love Actually, Lord of the Rings, Saving Private Ryan, Alien, Aliens, Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan, Babe, Serendipity, A Cadaver Christmas.
On this episode of I Hate Critics two new movies were released. Ted 2 and Max. Both are underwhelming but Max more so than Ted 2. Ted 2 is just disappointing because Ted was so great. Like typical Seth Macfarlane Ted 2 has a handful of really funny moments mixed with lots of down time. It’s every bodies biggest complaint with Macfarlane. He’s funny but he can’t put a story together. Just ask the guys from South Park. Josh did like it a little more than Sean did. Max on the other hand is just a waste of time and money. Marine dog gets sent up because his owner dies and is now living with his owners little brother as they try to save the day against something. I started to zone out a little.
In the news:
R.I.P. James Horner,
Rose Mcgowan fired by her agent for calling out the casting director of an Adam Sandler movie because they gave her notes to show up to the audition with lots of cleavage visible.
Tom Holland is the new Spiderman
Ben Affleck may direct the next Batman movie
Our Undisputed Classic is Harvey starring Jimmy Stewart. Jimmy Stewart proves once again that he’s one of the greatest actors of all time.
In 1985 Clint Eastwood turns the western genre on its head with Pale Rider by subtly introducing a supernatural element to the western. Then St. Elmos Fire and Red Sonia came out as well.
Our trailers this week are:
Hitman: Agent 47
Thanks for listening to the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we take on four new movies and the number one new movie this week is “Dracula Untold.” I don’t know why, but people went and saw that. Also there was “Alexander and the adjectives,” “The Judge,” which disappoints despite Robert Downey Jr and Robert Duvall.
Our undisputed classic this week is 1931’s “Dracula.” We just can’t get enough of these Dracula movies…it must be Halloween.
