This week we’ve got three new movies this week, No Escape, We Are Friends, Diary of a Teenage Girl. No Escape and We Are Friends are kind of let downs. No Escape is a movie where you just really never believe the main characters are in danger, but you’re supposed to…i.e. the main characters don’t die, you know they’re not gonna die but your supposed to be scared for them…it’s a let down. We Are Friends is ok, but Wes Bentley is so good in the movie that whenever he’s not on the screen you just want more Wes Bentley and since he’s a small character you spend most of the time wishing he were there which is not good for this movie.
EVERYBODY GO SEE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL NOW. It’s a master piece of a movie and that really everybody should see. That said it’s borderline NC-17 and really uncomfortable…but it’s powerful

This week we’ve got three new movies this week, American Ultra, Hitman: Agent 47 and Sinister 2. Nobody went and saw American Ultra, but I thought it looked really good and Sean had a lot of fun watching it. Hitman: Agent 47 was a lazy action movie and Sinister 2 was a lazy horror film. These two movies appear to be cash grabs and that’s just disappointing. The first Hitman movie wasn’t very good or successful so we’re not sure why they made a sequel, but Sinister was a solid horror film. It’s among one of the most profitable films of all time, so why not make a sequel? So they did.
Our Top Five this week is Top 5 horror sequels. We talk about Dawn of the Dead, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, Friday the 13th Part 2, Basket Case 2, It’s Alive 2, The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween 2, Amityville Horror 2, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows, Phantasm 2, Bride of Frankenstein, The Decent 2, Prometheus, Silence of the Lambs, Aliens.
Our Undisputed Classic is Carnival of Souls. It’s a movie that holds up largely due to the atmosphere it creates. The story itself doesn’t hold up but that’s because of movies like The Sixth Sense. There are so many twists in movies today that you can’t look back at a movie from 1962 and not figure out the twist within two minutes of this movie starting. That doesn’t make the movie bad, because it’s a fantastic movie.
In 1985 Teen Wolf, Better Off Dead, Gojira, Warning Signs, The Protector
Our trailers this week are:
The Final Girl
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.”

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast Bonus episode. Rest in Peace to Robin Williams. Sadly when we recorded Robin Williams was still with us and now he no longer is. We didn’t get to spend time honoring his life and career, but he will be missed and next week we will do definitely do just that.
This week “Ninja Turtles” came out and ‘beat off’ the competition including “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Into the Storm,” “100 Foot Journey,” and “Step Up All In.” Sean is offended by all of the new movies this week except “Step Up All In.” Josh did like “100 Foot Journey,” but Sean slept through it.
We’re introducing a new segment called “Defend It” and Josh is defending “Matrix: Reloaded.” I don’t know who won the fight, but I really like this segment.
In 1984 “Red Dawn,” “The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai,” “Cloak & Dagger” came out. I need to revisit “Red Dawn” that was a good one.
