Undisputed Classic: My Own Private Idaho 1989: Road House
This weeks episode is a downer. Pixels disappoints, Southpaw & Paper Towns are to formulaic. Mr. Holmes is great but nobody has seen it. Adam Sandler is almost single handedly the only thing wrong with Pixels and that breaks my heart. I want to accuse Sean of being a dumb critics, but his audience didn’t even go and see Pixels so I can’t defend Sandler. Jake Gyllenhaal is amazing in Southpaw, but the movie is kind of dumb. It was written for Eminem and oddly enough would have been a better movie if Eminem was in the movie. It’s all Gyllenhaal’s fault. Paper Towns is fine. Again we’ve seen it before, it’s a formula. It’s forgettable which kind of makes it worse than a bad movie. At least its not Fault in Our Stars or something by Nicolas Sparks. Then there is Mr. Holmes starring Ian McKellan as Sherlock Holmes. Mr. Holmes is such a unique interesting movie that everyone should go see right now.
Our Undisputed Classic is Rebel Without A Cause. Sean explains why this movie has held up and is such a great classic. I had a hard time getting into it but I can’t argue against anything Sean says. He even does a pretty good job of explaining why I don’t think it holds up.
In 1985 European Vacation, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and Heavenly Kid
Our trailers this week are:
Queen of Elizabeth
On this episode of I Hate Critics we’ve got three new movies: Minions cleaned up this weekend bringing in $120 million. It’s a movie that has been marketed well. Kids love the Minions, but it’s mostly forgettable. They’ve tricked our kids into watching garbage…good for them I guess. The Gallows is as big of a hit as any other movie this weekend. It was made for $100,000 and made $10,000,000. The acting is pretty bad as is the story but more power too them. I’m happy for their success. Self/Less is the movie where Ben Kingsley gets to become Ryan Reynolds and more or less make an action flick that is kind of boring. So it was a pretty weak weekend. Sorry about that.
Our Undisputed Classic is The Godfather Part II. Minions is a prequel about bad guys and so is The Godfather Part II so why not? The Godfather Part II is one of the best movies of all time. It’s a movie I’ve taken for granted. All three of us watched it again last week and if you haven’t seen this movie you really should. It’s brilliant,
In 1985 Silverado and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome were released.
Our trailers this week are:
Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice
Star Wars: The Force Awakens Featurette
Deadpool Leaked Trailer
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we are joined by the two more promiscuous members of the Mommy’s Cocktail Hour Podcast Tawny and Lindsay. They went and saw “50 Shades of Grey” to at least give us a female perspective on the film and we’re guys and we’re dumb. The movie wasn’t made for us but maybe it was made for them. A movie that was made for us was “The Kingsman.”
Inspired by the buzz that is “50 Shades of Grey” we chose “The Last Tango in Paris” as our Undisputed Classic.
1985 – A lot came out but only “The Breakfast Club” matters
Magic Mike 2
Straight Outta Compton
Hitman: Agent 47
The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Pitch Perfect 2
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Tribute to Jean Claude Van Damme Podcast. This week “Catching Fire” won the box office, but Frozen did great and could even get nominated for an Oscar, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad and Idina Menzel perform some of the best songs in a Disney movie since “The Lion King.” The movie looks great in 2D but in 3D its pinnacle.
Possibly the best movie of the weekend, “Homefront.” “Homefront” is about southern red neck justice, but James Franco tries too hard, he’s just supposed to be there to get punched, instead he acts. This movie annoys Josh. Sean is somewhat impressed with the heart in the songs from “Black Nativity.” You can feel Jennifer Hudson’s pain when she sings so much so that we feel that’s the reason she got kicked out of “American Idol” as soon as she did.
Sean got to see “Her” and Josh and I weren’t too happy about that because we want to see it. This movie and the performances should be around when the award time comes; unfortunately Scarlett Johansson is not eligible for the Golden Globe, but who cares The Golden Globes is a joke anyway. It’s an interesting question to ask namely because that’s the same question raised throughout this movie.
Penn & Teller produced a film called Tim’s Vermeer. A man named Tim Jenison became obsessed with the 17th century painter Johannes Vermeer. Jenison who never painted in his life uses the same strategy as Vermeer used (which is essentially tracing),it’s still art, but Carrot Top is still a comic.
Our Undisputed Classic was “The Godfather” largely due to the fact that it was Thanksgiving weekend and we released two podcasts last week. Plus “The Godfather” is on everything Thanksgiving. We lazily talk about it, but we still talk about it.
In 1983 John Carpenter’s “Christine” came out. While it was successful at the time I feel like it’s one of Carpenter’s underrated films. “Halloween,” “Escape from New York” and “The Thing” are great, but I think “Christine” is really good.
Our Trailers are:
Enemies Closer – It looks so bad it’s probably fantastic
Welcome to the Jungle – dumb
Bella Kiss Prologue – Dumb movie impressive trailer considering how dumb the movie looks. It’s getting released to You Tube.
Hercules The Legend Begins – Dumb
Son of God – Jesus looks really good
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty – I really want to see it
