Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.

This week is kind of a throw away week. “Horrible Bosses 2” came out and was funny but forgettable, but really wasn’t the first one too? I would say that’s high praise for a movie like “Horrible Bosses 2.” Then there is the “Penguins of Madagascar.” This movie exists and we’re not the audience for it, but it is something to listen to Sean insult children.

Sean saw the horror film “Babadook” and had some real high praise for that movie. He even said it may be the best female performance of the year by Essie Davis. Then Josh saw “Plastic Galaxy” and nobody including Josh cared.

#TBT “Catching Fire” is Just All Right With Me

Throw Back Thursday

Welcome to the I Hate Critics movie podcast, a movie podcast greater than your average movie podcast. This week we talk about “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Delivery Man” and “Inside Llewyn Davis.” The biggest movie of the weekend happens to be the worst movie of the weekend, but it’s not bad, it’s just a young adult story which means it has no balls and if you poke at it enough it falls apart. That said Jennifer Lawrence is on the verge of becoming a great actress and if for no other reason check it out to see her work.

“Delivery Man” is a solid Vince Vaughn film. I miss the days when he took more risks, but it could be worse, he could be Adam Sandler. Sean saw “Inside Llewyn Davis” and called it the perfect movie. Josh and i thought about ending him out of pure jealousy, but then we might never get to see it.

Our undisputed classic this week was “Oldboy.” Josh saw it twice. This weeks segment was my proudest moment in all of our podcasts. If you don’t leave that segment wanting…needing to see the original “Oldboy” then we’ve done something wrong. Josh missed a huge plot point in the movie that when he figured it out…which he does live on this podcast it all clicks and is a magical moment that we caught. You need to see this movie.

In 1983 “Terms of Endearment” began its reign as one of the most overrated films of all time while “Of Unknown Origin” took over Sean’s mind.

Our trailers this week our:
“Nymphomaniac”
“Sabotage”
“The Muppets Most Wanted”
“Best Night Ever”
“Need for Speed”
“Robocop”
“Raze”

Gladiator Noah and the Nymphomaniac

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Our March Movie Madness has made it to the final four with “Rocky” squaring off against “Almost Famous” and “Fight Club” taking on “Field of Dreams.” This week saw the film “Noah” wash away the competition (so dumb) with a great box office week, but not a great movie…not a bad movie, but just big budget blockbuster, not something you’d expect from Darren Aronofsky, but definitely something you’d expect from Russell Crowe. At least it wasn’t “Sabotage,” because according to Sean and the rest of the free world…that movie sucked.

The best movie to come out in our neck of the woods is “Bad Words” according to Sean. First time director Jason Bateman knocked it out of the park, so that’s exciting. I spent four hours late Saturday night watching both volumes 1 and 2 of Lars Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac.” I can’t decide if it’s good or bad, but it’s intriguing. I feel like whether you liked it or hated it, Von Trier got his point across and that’s all you can really ask for.

This week there was also a great article over at www.rogerebert.com begging film critics to actually talk about filmmaking rather than just how they (the critic) was affected emotionally by the movie, which Sean blamed on Harry Knowles and 9-11.

Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Breathless.” This movie left Josh breathless (sorry I got nothing). Actually Sean left Josh “Breathless” after Sean talked about how much he loved this film.

In 1984 “Romancing the Stone” came out. Josh and Sean love this film while I am sick of it for the same reasons they love it…go figure.

Trailers this week:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Jupiter Ascending
Hercules
Phantasm V

About Last Night: Merkins and Park Whores #Sharknado

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Happy Valentines Day, did you enjoy “Robocop?” Oh you didn’t see it. Laurence Fishburne would be so disappointed in you. Let me guess, you either went to “The Lego Movie” (Bob did) or “About Last Night?” Yeah Kevin Hart’s pretty funny, I can’t say I blame you there.

You need to listen to Sean describe “Winter’s Tale” and tell me that doesn’t sound like the most magnificent thing you’ve ever heard of. In short its “Frozen” meets “Angel Heart.” There was one other movie but I forgot what it was.

Our undisputed classic is “Dr. Strangelove,” another Stanley Kubrick classic. I’ve decided that my favorite Kubrick movie is the last one I saw. How can “2001” not be your favorite? Well check out “The Shining,” but then check out “A Clockwork Orange” or “Dr. Strangelove.” Which one is the best? Right now since I just saw it “Dr. Strangelove.” It’s 50 years old and holds up better than most comedies and is strangely still relevant today.

This week in 1984 oops we skipped this segment, we’ll make it up to you next week I promise.

Our trailers this week are:

“Nymphomaniac Volume 1”
“Under the Skin”
“Brick Mansions”
“Drive Hard”

“Catching Fire” is Just All Right With Me
