Three Middle Aged Men Talk Insurgent

0

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. We start the podcast off doing a recap of round two of our March Movie Madness tournament. In the news this week Joseph Gordon-Levitt will produce and star in a “Fraggle Rock” Movie. Chris Rock is penning a sequel to “Top Five.” South Korea is going to drop copies of “The Interview” into North Korea.

There’s a new “Divergent” movie out called “Insurgent.” As three thirty something year old males we hated it…well only Sean saw it but Josh and I have no interest in it. Josh is more interested in the next fan fiction story that’ll turn into the next mom sex book.

Sean insists that Sean Penn could kick my ass…he’s probably right. “The Gunman” is the new Sean Penn movie and it’s as Josh called it, a movie. If you’re going to the movie for Idris Elba, stay home, he’s in it for three movies. Then there is a religious movie called “Do You Believe” that Sean bought. It’s not the typical pandering piece of crap that keeps coming out every month. It’s an honest movie that is a little convenient, but it’s very cool about showing why somebody would have faith.

Our Undisputed Classic is the Robert Redford film “Three Days of the Condor.” This movie is a great, smart CIA thriller. It’s scary how accurate this movie ended up being. It is about as perfect as a CIA spy thriller can get.

1985 – The Last Dragon, Friday the 13th Part 5, Porky’s Revenge, and Baby Secret of the Lost Legend.

…And So it Goes, Brett Ratner is Dumb

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.

Pompeii is Pomposterous

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. There wasn’t a whole lot going on in the theater so we did about a seven minute intro talking about random shit like the new “Fantastic Four” movie and an African American man taking a job from a white man, “Space Jam 2,” “The Raid” remake, the devil looking like Barack Obama. We also talk about Warner Bros ripping off “Veronica Mars” fans. There was a ridiculous poll regarding the new “Noah” movie coming out that asks people of faith if they would watch a “Noah” movie created in Hollywood? Finally Harvey Weinstein accuses Sean of not thinking for himself when he reviewed “August: Osage County.”

Yes there were movies that came out this week. “3 Days to Kill” continues Kevin Costner’s 2013/2014 come back, unfortunately the movie is not great. McG directed the film and it’s a dark comedy where Kevin Costner plays John Cusak. Why not just get John Cusak? “Pompeii” is Pomposterous. Since we didn’t have any good movies Bob and Sean argue over “Dallas Buyer’s Club.” Sean couldn’t see past Matthew McConaughey’s weight loss while Bob could. There wasn’t much more to talk about because well that was it.

Our undisputed classic is “The Professional.” Josh immediately decides it’s not an undisputed classic followed by Sean’s agreement. Bob liked the movie the most but not passionately enough to defend it. Then we discuss why people love this movie. Was it the style, the violence or the characters?

This week in 1984, well actually last week in 1984 “Footloose” came out and is an undisputed classic…although the soundtrack has outlived the movie. The remake didn’t work but largely because it’s impossible for a small town to isolate itself from the rest of the world. They should have done the remake in a third world country.

Our trailers this week are:

“Guardians of the Galaxy”
“In This Blood”
“Anchorman 2” Rated R
“The Sacrament”
“Legends of the Knight”

Insidious Chapter 2 – Size Matters

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Podcast. This week there two new movies out, Insidious Chapter 2 and The Family. Sean liked Insidious but said that you really need to see and like the first installment to enjoy the second. The Family was fine, but Sean doesn’t think he can recommend it.

This weeks ‘Undisputed and still reigning Classic’ is 8 ½.

In this week in 1983 The Big Chill came out. We compare The Big Chill to Reality Bites and Garden State as movies of a generation
