The Critics Are Wrong, Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice is Good

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. On this 194th episode of the podcast we talk about Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice for the second time. We briefly talk about My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, but then we move onto our third annual March Movie Madness tournament. This year we took sixteen movies, some of which were suggested by the audience and between the three of us decided which movies moved on to the next round. The only requirement was that we had to pick movies we’d never talked about on the podcast before…or at least movies we don’t remember talking about.

The movies were:

Citizen Kane vs Paths of Glory
Swingers vs Gross Pointe Blank
Good Will Hunting vs Punch Drunk Love
LA Confidential vs The Verdict
Fargo vs O’ Brother Where Art Thou
Glengarry Glen Ross vs Hard Candy
Waking Live vs Monsieur Lazhar
The Silence of the Lambs vs Phantasm

Let us know where we messed up.

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?
