This week we’ve got five new movies. The number one move of the week was the cash grab Maze Runner sequel called Maze Runner 2 The Scorch Trials. Black Mass was a well directed well acted film that’s kind of boring. I think it has more to do with the fact that there is a great documentary out there about Whitey Bulger that is better than this movie not to mention that The Departed is loosely based on this subject matter and is a far more entertaining film. It’s hard to be critical, but we were all bored. Everest is a movie that turns idiots into heroes and that pisses Sean off. Grandma may be the best movie of the week but close behind is Captive. If you’re going to see any movies this week we recommend Grandma or Captive.
Our Top Five this week is mob/crime movies: Our discussion includes The Godfather, The Godfather Part 2, Pulp Fiction, Good Fellas, LA Confidential, Miller’s Crossing, The Untouchables, and many more.
Our Undisputed Classic is L’adventura. It’s another Michelangelo Antonioni film that truly is an experience. You may not like the experience but we did. It’s a movie that just marches to it’s own beat. So many movies feel the need to follow a formula but not Antonioni. You can check this movie out on Hulu Plus.
In 1985 we take on Creator
Our trailers this week are:
Hunger Games Mocking Jay Part 2
Bridge of Spies
Thanks for listening to the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we take on five new movies. The big movie this week is Brad Pitt and “Fury.” Josh and Sean both like it, but more on a graphic novel level than a war movie level, but Josh finally gets on the board in our fantasy game. The best movie of the weekend is the Guillermo del Toro produced kids movie “Book of Life.” Hopefully this movie can stick around during Oscar season.
“Best of Me” based on a Nicolas Sparks book is so bad Sean loves it. Jason Retiman’s “Men, Women, and Children” is actually pretty good. Sean was floored by it. Then there is a Christian movie with the cast of “Night Court” called “Matter of Faith.”
Our Defend It movie is “Summer of Sam.” Sean defends this against other critics. Josh and Bob for the most part watch it for the first time. Josh loved it and Bob just liked it.
In 1984 there are some forgettable movies and “The Razor’s Edge” with Bill Murray
In the Heart of the Sea
