Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we had five new movies. The Oscar nominated Room was rereleased wide this week, Kung Fu Panda 3 exceeds low expectations and The Finest Hours is the real deal…except non of you saw it.  Jane Got a Gun isn’t a bad movie and why do the let the Wayan Brothers keep making these terrible parody movies?


Our Top Five this week is Netflix gems. We talk about Blue Ruin, We Need to Talk about Kevin, Queen of Earth, In the Loop, Fat Kid Rules the World, The Dirties, Comet, Bernie, Short Term 12 and many more.

In 1986 Down and Out in Beverly Hills and The Best of Times came out.

This week “Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” came out and destroyed the box office. Neither Josh or Sean liked it, but we’re really not the audience for this movie or these series of movies. The movie we really wanted to talk about is “Whiplash.” In my opinion it is to jazz what “Rocky” is to boxing in that it’s good but that’s not what it looks like when someone is playing the drums. I liked it the least of the three but I still liked it. Sean loved it.

Sean and I watched “Foxcatcher,” we dabble with that a little bit but don’t get too into it. Sean saw “The Theory of Everything” and doesn’t think it needs to exist. Finally there’s Joe Berlinger’s “Whitey” which Sean calls the best documentary of the year. It’ll ruin your day, that’s for sure.

This weeks Undisputed Classic is Woody Allen’s “Manhattan.”

1984 – “Supergirl” and some Robert DeNiro/Meryl Streep movie


Pitch Perfect 2
Red Knot
Son of a Gun
