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.

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Our March Movie Madness is finally over and “Almost Famous” is your winner. Thanks to all of you who voted. This week we talk “Draft Day,” “Oculus” and “Under the Skin.” Sean said “Draft Day” was enjoyable. As a group we ranked the top five Kevin Costner films. Both Sean and Josh caught “Oculus” from WWE films. I saw that it was from WWE films and figured out that it’d be a waste of time… I was right.
Josh, Sean and I drove 3 hours to Evanston, IL just to see Scarlett Johansson get naked…I mean her amazing film “Under the Skin.” I’m completely joking about the only going to see her naked. This movie looked amazing and we really wanted to see it and it was amazing. It’ll stick with me for a long time.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Memento.” Josh wonders if Christopher Nolan is the best working director out there. I kind of feel like Nolan and David Fincher are interchangeable. I’m kind of partial to David O. Russell right now. That said “Memento” is one amazing film.
In 1984 “Iceman” and “Friday the 13th IV” came out. Josh has a soft spot for “Iceman,” but nobody really cares about “Friday the 13th IV”
