Top Five: Favorite Keanu Reeves movies
Undisputed Classic: Midnight Cowboy
1987 – Over the Top, Mannequin, 84 Charing Cross Road, The Good Father,
Avengers: Infinity War
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
“Tomorrowland” came out this week and while successful wasn’t quite the box office juggernaut I was hoping for. The movie itself has a lot of promise but just falls short. Older kids to teenagers may enjoy the movie more so than adults, but it’s an incomplete movie that’s easy to pull a part. From a Madding Crowd nearly puts the podcast to sleep.
The remake of “The Poltergeist” came out this week as well and is one of the worst remakes thus far. They more or less just took the name and put it on a low rank modern PG-13 horror film. They tried to hard to be different from the original while not being original if that makes sense. It was more or less a money grab all around.
We asked our audience their top five 80’s Horror films of all time. “The Thing,” “The Shining,” “The Poltergiest,” “Evil Dead 1 & 2,” and “Nightmare on Elm Street” led the way while “They Live,” “Cannibal Holocaust,” “The Gate,” “Cujo” and “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” were mentioned as well.
Our Undisputed Classic was “The Poltergeist.” All three of us really enjoyed the movie. It’s definitely a classic. We debate the PG rating and whether Tobe Hooper gets enough credit for this classic.
1985 – Brewster’s Millions, A View to Kill
We Are Your Friends
Jupiter Ascending Honest Trailer
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. People are still dogging on “American Sniper” and I find it annoying as does Sean and Josh. Blackhat starring Australian Chris Hemsworth is not going to be released in Australia. Johnny Depp said he’s not going to piggy back off of his fame is to be a musician.
The biggest hit of the weekend is Jennifer Lopez in “The Boy Next Door.” She is not naked in this movie, but there is some impressive hidden nudity according to Sean, but that’s all there is to appreciate. Rob Cohen is the director and the movie is basically too competent to be bad but too bad to be good, so it sucks. If it wasn’t as competent as it is it could be fun bad.
Mordecai came out and turned out it was just about Johnny Depp’s mustache. The whole movie is dedicated to his mustache, which means it’s kind of boring. It’s not snappy, the pace sucks, the chemistry is lacking. Ewen McGregor is the only one who knows what movies he’s in.
George Lucas produced kind of a weird crappy movie called “Strange Magic.” It was a mess. Go ahead and skip this one. Disney released it, but didn’t even put their name on it.
Sean use to love Johnny Depp in “From Hell,” so he’s taking another look at it to see if it holds up. He wondered what he was thinking after revisiting it.
1985 – Fandango, Falcon and The Snowman came out.
