Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we had three new movies. There was The Choice which I think is based on a Nicolas Sparks book but I could be mistaken…I wasn’t paying attention. Then there was Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. Finally The Coen Brothers are back with another gem Hail, Caesar!
Our Top Five this week is 40 year old movies because Sean just turned 40. Some of the movies turning 40 include Rocky, Taxi Driver, Network, All the President’s Men, Carrie, Marathon Man, Bad News Bears, The Outlaw Josey Wales and more.
Our Undisputed Classic is Raising Arizona
In 1986 F/X and Hannah and Her Sisters Came Out.
Captain America: Civil War
Independence Day: Resurgence
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
10 Cloverfield Lane
Secret Life of Pets
God’s of Egypt
Eddie the Eagle
The Jungle Book
This week we’ve got two new movies this week. He Named me Malala is a great documentary by David Guggenheim about the insanely brave Malala. Pan also came out but nobody seemed to notice. I’m not even sure the filmmakers realized they were making a movie. It is however Hugh Jackman’s birthday so Happy Birthday Hugh, here’s the biggest bomb of your career.
Rather than an Undisputed Classic we decided to challenge ourselves by checking out a Hugh Jackman film we hadn’t seen which included Prisoners, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Fountain.
In 1985 we take on Sliver Bullet & Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins
Our trailers this week are:
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
This week we’ve got four new movies this week. The Martian, Sicario, The Walk and Hell and Back. The first three movies are fantastic. The Walk was released in IMAX only and it didn’t do very but it’s a fantastic film. We highly recommend checking it out. The Martian and Sicario also came out and they are two of the best films of the year so far. They’ll most likely be overlooked come award season which is unfortunate. Then there is Hell and Back which nobody knew about and Sean didn’t find funny.
Our Undisputed Classic is Solaris. Yes there are multiple Solaris films. We talk about the 1972 and the 2002 version and we had a really great conversation about these films and about Science Fiction in general.
In 1985 we take on Commando and Jagged Edge
Our trailers this week are:
Ip Man 3
Throw Back Thursday
Welcome to the I Hate Critics movie podcast, a movie podcast greater than your average movie podcast. This week we talk about “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Delivery Man” and “Inside Llewyn Davis.” The biggest movie of the weekend happens to be the worst movie of the weekend, but it’s not bad, it’s just a young adult story which means it has no balls and if you poke at it enough it falls apart. That said Jennifer Lawrence is on the verge of becoming a great actress and if for no other reason check it out to see her work.
“Delivery Man” is a solid Vince Vaughn film. I miss the days when he took more risks, but it could be worse, he could be Adam Sandler. Sean saw “Inside Llewyn Davis” and called it the perfect movie. Josh and i thought about ending him out of pure jealousy, but then we might never get to see it.
Our undisputed classic this week was “Oldboy.” Josh saw it twice. This weeks segment was my proudest moment in all of our podcasts. If you don’t leave that segment wanting…needing to see the original “Oldboy” then we’ve done something wrong. Josh missed a huge plot point in the movie that when he figured it out…which he does live on this podcast it all clicks and is a magical moment that we caught. You need to see this movie.
In 1983 “Terms of Endearment” began its reign as one of the most overrated films of all time while “Of Unknown Origin” took over Sean’s mind.
Our trailers this week our:
“The Muppets Most Wanted”
“Best Night Ever”
“Need for Speed”
