The Gift & Rock n Roll Movies

0

We’ve got five new movies this week: The Fantastic Four, Ricki and the Flash, Shaun the Sheep, The Gift, and Irrational Man. The Fantastic Four was boring and poorly directed but the director blames the studio and oh yeah Josh liked it. Both The Gift and an Irrational Man are must sees according Sean. I wish I could go see both of these. Sean sold them well. Rick and the Flash received mixed reviews on the show. Sean really disliked it and Josh really liked it. Because of Ricki and the Flash we asked our audience what their top five favorite movies about rock n roll. Included in those lists is Almost Famous, Once, This is Spinal Tap, Rock n Roll High School, High Fidelity, School of Rock, The Runaways, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Blues Brothers, The Harder They Come, Begin Again, La Bamba, Empire Records and The Doors.

Minions & The Godfather Part II

0

On this episode of I Hate Critics we’ve got three new movies: Minions cleaned up this weekend bringing in $120 million. It’s a movie that has been marketed well. Kids love the Minions, but it’s mostly forgettable. They’ve tricked our kids into watching garbage…good for them I guess. The Gallows is as big of a hit as any other movie this weekend. It was made for $100,000 and made $10,000,000. The acting is pretty bad as is the story but more power too them. I’m happy for their success. Self/Less is the movie where Ben Kingsley gets to become Ryan Reynolds and more or less make an action flick that is kind of boring. So it was a pretty weak weekend. Sorry about that.

Minions

Our Undisputed Classic is The Godfather Part II. Minions is a prequel about bad guys and so is The Godfather Part II so why not? The Godfather Part II is one of the best movies of all time. It’s a movie I’ve taken for granted. All three of us watched it again last week and if you haven’t seen this movie you really should. It’s brilliant,

In 1985 Silverado and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome were released.

Our trailers this week are:

Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice
Star Wars: The Force Awakens Featurette
Deadpool Leaked Trailer

Sexy Artwork, “Enders” Practice and Tacky Taglines

0

Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. This week in movie will go down in movie history as one of the more memorable weeks because I can’t even remember what came out. “Ender’s Game,” the old guy movie and the turkey movie. “Last Vegas” and what was it called, oh yeah “Free Birds.” In short “Ender’s Game” was surprisingly decent and “Last Vegas” and “Free Birds” were pretty bland despite a great cast in “Last Vegas” and a decent director in “Free Birds.”

Josh able from the “Film Fan Perspective” wasn’t able to join us this week.

The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Despite being a big Kubrick fan I never saw is masterpiece “2001.” I’m not a big fan of abstract movies and “2001” is definitely that, but I was drawn in and it made me ask questions, it made me want to know more and it was beautiful.

In movie news Emile Hirsch has signed on to play John Belushi. We took this news bashed Shia Labeouf for no real reason. We talk about the possible “ExpendaBelles” movie with Cameron Diaz, Meryl Streep, and MIlla Jovovich. Sean insists it’s a joke. Finally we talk about the new “Star Wars” films and the rumor that Harrison Ford has signed on.

This week in 1983 we have the Chevy Chase classic “Deal of the Century.” What? You don’t remember this movie? Ok.

Check out our trailers this week: “Catching Fire,” “Xmen: Days of Futures Past,” “47 Ronin,” “Beyond Outrage,” “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Open Grave,” and “Labor Day.”
