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.
This week we’ve got two new movies: Straight Outta Compton and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Straight Outta Compton is a phenomenal movie. It’s come out at the perfect time. Just like hip hop in general this movie is not going to get the credit it deserves when Oscar season comes around. The performances are incredible. This movie is on par with films like Ray and Walk the Line. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is a good movie that you’re going to forget by next week, classic Guy Ritchie.
Our Top Five this week is Top 5 TV Shows that became movies. The discussion included South Park, Muppets, X Files, Trailer Park Boys, Serenity, Mystery Science Theater 3000 the movie, Mission Impossible, Maverick, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Masters of the Universe, The Fugitive, 21 Jump Street, The Untouchables, Star Trek 2 The Wrath of Khan, Beavis and Butt Head Do America, The Simpsons and more.
We brought the defend it segment back to talk about Who’s The Man.

Our trailers this week are:
Ride Along 2
“Tomorrowland” came out this week and while successful wasn’t quite the box office juggernaut I was hoping for. The movie itself has a lot of promise but just falls short. Older kids to teenagers may enjoy the movie more so than adults, but it’s an incomplete movie that’s easy to pull a part. From a Madding Crowd nearly puts the podcast to sleep.
The remake of “The Poltergeist” came out this week as well and is one of the worst remakes thus far. They more or less just took the name and put it on a low rank modern PG-13 horror film. They tried to hard to be different from the original while not being original if that makes sense. It was more or less a money grab all around.
We asked our audience their top five 80’s Horror films of all time. “The Thing,” “The Shining,” “The Poltergiest,” “Evil Dead 1 & 2,” and “Nightmare on Elm Street” led the way while “They Live,” “Cannibal Holocaust,” “The Gate,” “Cujo” and “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” were mentioned as well.
Our Undisputed Classic was “The Poltergeist.” All three of us really enjoyed the movie. It’s definitely a classic. We debate the PG rating and whether Tobe Hooper gets enough credit for this classic.
