This week we’ve got several new movies. Diane Keaton remade every other movie she’s made over the last ten years with Love the Coopers. Sean wasn’t thrilled. The 33 is a Lifetime like movie that made it to the theaters. It’s pretty good, but it’s not a very gritty story…it’s just warm and fuzzy. Suffragette was an ok that was supposed to be great about the early feminist movement. My All American is a Christian film that also happens to be the best film of the weekend. It’s Rudyesque but the direction is a little amateur. Knock Knock is the new Eli Roth film that is so bad it’s amazing. Keanu Reeves redefines bad acting. It’s actually so bad that it’s good. I Smile Back is the new Sarah Silverman movie. It’s not a comedy what so ever. Silverman is great in it, the movies great. It’ll probably end up on the outside looking in come award season, but that shouldn’t take anything away from this movie.
Top Five this week is Feminist movies.
For our Undisputed Classic this week is “Brian’s Song.”
In 1985 Once Bitten
Our trailers this week are:
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
This weeks episode is a downer. Pixels disappoints, Southpaw & Paper Towns are to formulaic. Mr. Holmes is great but nobody has seen it. Adam Sandler is almost single handedly the only thing wrong with Pixels and that breaks my heart. I want to accuse Sean of being a dumb critics, but his audience didn’t even go and see Pixels so I can’t defend Sandler. Jake Gyllenhaal is amazing in Southpaw, but the movie is kind of dumb. It was written for Eminem and oddly enough would have been a better movie if Eminem was in the movie. It’s all Gyllenhaal’s fault. Paper Towns is fine. Again we’ve seen it before, it’s a formula. It’s forgettable which kind of makes it worse than a bad movie. At least its not Fault in Our Stars or something by Nicolas Sparks. Then there is Mr. Holmes starring Ian McKellan as Sherlock Holmes. Mr. Holmes is such a unique interesting movie that everyone should go see right now.
Our Undisputed Classic is Rebel Without A Cause. Sean explains why this movie has held up and is such a great classic. I had a hard time getting into it but I can’t argue against anything Sean says. He even does a pretty good job of explaining why I don’t think it holds up.
In 1985 European Vacation, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and Heavenly Kid
Our trailers this week are:
Queen of Elizabeth
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week not much came out. Will Smith made a con movie called Focus. It’s fine, but like most cons, the con is sloppy and it’s not necessarily entertaining enough to take your focus off of the con like “Oceans 11.” Then there was a horror film called “Lazarus Effect” that Josh hated so much he called it potentially the worst movie he’s ever seen.
Our beloved/hated film critic Sean Patrick had a near death experience this week. He had a massive asthma attack that put him in the hospital for six days. At one point he actually lost the ability to breath and had to have machines breath for him for several hours. He’s back and he’s doing better so hopefully he stays that way.
We lost Leonard Nimoy famous as Spock from “Star Trek.” RIP Spock, “Live long in prosper.”
The Academy Award winning film “Still Alice” also got released in theaters. Julianne Moore won best actress. Sean thinks it was a great performance, but had three or four other performances he preferred. Sean compared it to a Lifetime movie with great acting.
Our Undisputed Classic is “The Sting.” Stars Robert Redford and Paul Newman make “The Sting” highly entertaining. Josh loved it the most, Sean tried to pick it a part and Bob enjoyed it.
1985 – Several movies came out. The best two movies are Woody Allen’s “Purple Rose of Cairo,” and John Cusak in “The Sure Thing.”
While We’re Young
Love & Mercy
The Resurrection of Jake Roberts
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Oscar recap show. It’s late, we’re all three exhausted and it shows. The Oscars are just two damn long. “Birdman” wins the night. I think the three of us differ on how good “Birdman” is, it’s my favorite of the movies nominated, I think it’s a little lower on Josh and Sean’s list. We all three agree that “Gone Girl” is the best movie of the year, but what are you going to do?
Some memorable moments in the show include JK Simmons telling us to call our moms. Patricia Arquette asking for equal women’s rights, it’s sad that in 2015 this is still an issue. Common delivered one of the most powerful speeches of the night and the writer of “The Imitation Game” deserved to win another award for his acceptance speech.
It’s weird, there’s not much to complain about. I was entertained enough, but it was just so long. I apologize if we’re not completely with it this episode…we’ll get them next time.
