Next Week: Halloween, The Hate U GIve, Undisputed Classic: Dawn of the Dead, Top Five Horror Movies
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast Bonus episode. We’ve got three new movies in “Lucy,” “Hercules” and “And So It Goes.” All of which are sort of dumb, but “And So It Goes” takes the cake. But Sean checks out “Begin Again” and claims that Josh undersold it last week. Best movie of the year? Maybe.
This weeks Undisputed Classic “Melancholia.” Lars Van Trier is an interesting man and director. You don’t have to like his films, but for the most part you’re going find his films fascinating.
In 1984 Prince came out with the musical masterpiece “Purple Rain.” He’s almost as electrifying as the Rock according to Sean. Yes music/artistic royalty was compared to pro wrestling royalty. Sean doesn’t read these. Then two other movies came out but who gives a shit.
Tweet our friends at @awesome80spod and let them know you want them to talk about #PurpleRain from @h8critics.
Fifty Shades of Grey
The Death of Superman Lives
Hot Tub Time Machine 2
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast Bonus episode. We’ve got three and a half new movies this week. “Purge: Anarchy” won the weekend. “Planes: Fire & Rescue” did well but kind of sucks…but it could have been so good. Then there is “Sex Tape.” None of you went to see it. We were hoping to make some Cameron Diaz shoulder jokes but it bombed, but it’s not that bad. Then Josh saw “Begin Again.”
The ‘Do it Hold Up’ movie is “There’s Something About Mary.” Two out of three of us thinks it does, the other one never liked it.
In 1984 “Revenge of the Nerds” and “The Never Ending Story” came out
