Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we have four theatrical movies. Zootopia won the weekend and pissed Josh off. London Has Fallen and The Other Side of the Door pissed Sean off. Then Whiskey Tango Foxtrot salvaged the weekend.
Our Top Five this week is movies about modern day wars. We talk about films such as Zero Dark Thirty, The Hurt Locker, and American Sniper.
Our Undisputed Classic is Three Kings
In 1986 Highlander, A Room With a View.
This week we’ve got three new movies. The Perfect Guy is an ok movie that could have been really good if it didn’t have to be politically correct. It tries to take two different lanes. On one hand the movie wants to be a serious movie about women putting up with abusive horrible men. In another lane is a campy thriller, however these lanes don’t work simultaneously and therefore it’s kind of a bad movie. 90 Minutes in Heaven is awful…even for a religious movie. The Visit however is actually a pretty good movie. M. Night Shyamalan is back. It has a great twist, even if you figure it out. It’s hilarious, it’s scary, it’s a lot of fun please go see this movie.
Our Top Five this week is twist endings. We talk about Psycho, Saw, Empire Strikes Back, Oldboy, Vertigo, The Usual Suspects, Memento, Primal Fear, Fallen, Fight Club, and The Sixth Sense.
Our Undisputed Classic is The Sixth Sense.
In 1985 After Hours, Agnes of God, Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters
Our trailers this week are:
Our Brand is Crisis
The Happening Honest Trailer
On this episode of I Hate Critics two new movies were released. Ted 2 and Max. Both are underwhelming but Max more so than Ted 2. Ted 2 is just disappointing because Ted was so great. Like typical Seth Macfarlane Ted 2 has a handful of really funny moments mixed with lots of down time. It’s every bodies biggest complaint with Macfarlane. He’s funny but he can’t put a story together. Just ask the guys from South Park. Josh did like it a little more than Sean did. Max on the other hand is just a waste of time and money. Marine dog gets sent up because his owner dies and is now living with his owners little brother as they try to save the day against something. I started to zone out a little.
In the news:
R.I.P. James Horner,
Rose Mcgowan fired by her agent for calling out the casting director of an Adam Sandler movie because they gave her notes to show up to the audition with lots of cleavage visible.
Tom Holland is the new Spiderman
Ben Affleck may direct the next Batman movie
Our Undisputed Classic is Harvey starring Jimmy Stewart. Jimmy Stewart proves once again that he’s one of the greatest actors of all time.
In 1985 Clint Eastwood turns the western genre on its head with Pale Rider by subtly introducing a supernatural element to the western. Then St. Elmos Fire and Red Sonia came out as well.
Our trailers this week are:
Hitman: Agent 47
