Angry Artificial Intelligence & The Avengers

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we talk about Harrison Ford’s plane crash, Patton Oswalt’s idea for “Unbreakable 2 & 3,” and then a teacher has been arrested in Ohio for screening “ABC’s of Death” to young teenagers. So we ask the question, when can you show your kids rated R movies?

This weeks releases include “Chappie,” “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Unfinished Business” and “Merchants of Doubt.” These movies generated a lot of hate from our film critic. Thankfully Josh saved the day by liking “Chappie.” It was one of my favorite moments on the podcast. Sean’s hate was at an all time high and Josh liked the movie and embraced his love of the movie despite Sean’s hate and it was magical…ok I’m being corny.

Chappie

“The Second Best Exotic Marigold” is gentle and pleasant. Gentle and pleasant often means lazy and pointless. “Unfinished Business” will probably go down as one of the worst movies of the year. It misses the point on so many levels. At worst “Unfinished Business” should have been another unoriginal Vince Vaughn comedy, but it was much worse than that. It’s a bummer.

Then there is a documentary about “Merchants of Doubt.” It’s about how these spin doctors that have convinced half of America that Global Warming is a hoax. It’s pretty infuriating, but the people that need to see this movie won’t.

This weeks Defend It film is “A.I. Artificial Intelligence.” Josh and Sean both agree this movie is great. I can’t dispute it but I can’t help but want to see what Kubrick would have done with it. Could you imagine if you watched every movie wondering what Kubrick’s version would be like? That’s not fair to the movie.

“Twelve Years a Slave” is 2013’s First Oscar Front Runner

Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. “12 Years a Slave” is this years first real Oscar contender and Sean predicts that Chiwetel Ejiofor is a sure win for Best Actor. I’m always hesitant when Hollywood takes on racism and based on Sean’s recommendation I’m excited that “12 Years a Slave” seems to have knocked it out of the park.

“The Best Man Holiday” a sequel to “The Best Man” came out this weekend as well. Like it’s predecessor “The Best Man Holiday” is a very watchable, fun, enjoyable movie with really good acting and really good directing. It’s hard to say much more than that, but check this out instead of the next Katherine Heigl dud.

“The Dallas Buyer’s Club” came out and while it was good, the acting was distracting. When an actor is campaigning for an Oscar sometimes that can be distracting. Only Sean saw it, but he couldn’t stop staring at Matthew McConaughey. Maybe it was just Sean, but it took him out of the movie.

The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “Badlands.” As a fan of messed up serial killer movies and not really digging on Terrence Malick’s abstract films I was curious how I would take “Badlands.” I love “Badlands.” It will go down as one of my favorite movies. It’s a serial killer movie told from a fairy tale perspective.

Sean sat down this week and watched “Yentl” beginning to end and he had the balls to say it was good, so there’s that.”Yentl” along with “Nate and Hayes” came out in 1983.

Our trailers this week are: “Divergent,” “Maleficent,” “Cuban Fury,” “Noah,” “Man of Steel: Honest Trailer,” “Tar.”
