This week “Interstellar” and “Big Hero 6” came out. I kind of think it was a disappointing week in a way. Josh loved “Interstellar,” Sean had an appreciation for it but ultimately we weren’t the biggest fans. “Big Hero 6” was fine but it didn’t soar.

This week we defend “Prometheus” well Josh does, but Sean goes rouge and rips it to shreds.

1984 – “Paris, Texas,” “Nightmare on Elm Street,” “Silent Night Deadly Night”

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Sadly we’re already at the halfway point of 2014, where did the time go? The three of us discuss our top movies so far of 2014. Common films in the top five included “Enemy,” “Under the Skin,” and “Chef.” As well as “Captain American” and “Cheap Thrills.” Other than that it hasn’t been the greatest year in movies.

Continuing with that trend is Clint Eastwood’s “Jersey Boys” which contains many magical moments but in between those magical moments is a lot of down time. At least we got the very entertaining “Think Like A Man Too,” a pretty bad movie with a great cast to make up for it.

On this weeks Does it Hold Up segment we discuss “The English Patient.” Sadly we all agree that it’s probably a good movie, we just don’t like watching it…does that even make sense?

This week in 1984 “The Karate Kid” was released. Along with “The Karate Kid” was “Rhinestone” and “The Pope of Greenwich Village.”
