On this episode of I Hate Critics we’ve got three new movies: Magic Mike XXL, Terminator Genisys, Me & Earl & the Dying Girl. Both Sean and I loved Magic Mike XXL, it was a lot of fun. It kind of makes you want to be a male stripper. The joy they had making this movie comes back off the screen. Shelby and Beth were having fun as well. Me & Earl & the Dying Girl is completely awesome. It’s essentially The Fault in Our Stars done properly. Terminator Genisys is fun but that pisses Josh off because it should be more serious and not fun. I’m paraphrasing because Josh isn’t here to defend himself.
Our Undisputed Classic is Donnie Darko. In sticking with our time travel theme (not our male stripper theme) we went with Donnie Darko and it’s a movie that is just amazing and if you mix the book in with it is even better.
In 1985 Back to the Future came out. The biggest movie of 1985. $200 million in 1985, that’s amazing.
Our trailers this week are:

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week Sean Josh and I are joined by Michael Carlson host of the The Awesome 80’s Podcast www.theawesome80s.net. Michael joined us to talk about the 30th Anniversary of both “Ghostbusters” and “Gremlins.” He also went out and saw the new Tom Cruise Flick “Edge of Tomorrow.” The big movie this week was “The Fault in Our Stars” or as we affectionately refer to it as the girl movie.
Our discussion of Does This Hold Up? started with “American Beauty” and ended with “South Park.” Sean doesn’t like it, I love it, Josh is somewhere in the middle.

Welcome to “The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.” This week we celebrate the life and career of Philip Seymour Hoffman. He was one of the greatest actors of all time. We celebrate the following films:
“Synecdoche, New York”
“Mission Impossible III”
“The Big Lebowski”
“The Talented Mr. Ripley”
“Along Came Polly”
“Charlie Wilson’s War”
“Punch Drunk Love”
“Monuments Men” also came out this week with an amazing cast, George Clooney, Matt Damon, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett and Bill Murray. The cast was amazing the movie was just all right. “Vampire Academy” was a waste of time. Another stupid vampire movie trying to reach the teen girls and the 30 something moms…grow up people. Then there’s “The Lego Movie” and Sean loves it and Josh is disappointed.
Josh watched “Shame” to check out Steve McQueen’s work. Sean didn’t like, Josh was affected by it and then they go on to argue over how hot Michael Fassbender is. We also talk about “The Apartment” starring Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacClaine and Don Jon.
Our trailers this week are:
“Hector and the Search for Happiness”
