Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Are you interested in a new “Ghostbusters” Universe? Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd are interested. There’s lots of “Star Wars” news. There are several sequel rumors floating around including “Frozen,” “ Zoolander” and “Mallrats.” Tim Burton is going to make a live action “Dumbo” movie. Jamie Foxx claims he’s going to play Mike Tyson in a Martin Scorsese movie. Sarah Jones finally received some justice.
This weeks big release was “Cinderella.” It made $70 million and everybody loves it. Sean even said that this movie wasn’t made for him and he still loved it. Josh watched the movie alone in an emptry theater at 10:40 pm. Just saying. The “Frozen” short in front of “Cinderella” was pretty good too.
Liam Neeson has a new action movie out. We once again discuss beating up Liam Neeson and Ed Harris, but not Vincent D’onofrio. Sean caught a documentary called “The Wrecking Crew” about probably the most important group of American musicians is the 50’s & 60’s.
Our Undisputed Classic is Ingmar Bergman’s “The Seventh Seal.” This movie sounds amazing; I wish I got the chance to see it. It’s been ripped off a million times.
1985 – “Def-Con 4” and “Sylvester”

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we talk about Harrison Ford’s plane crash, Patton Oswalt’s idea for “Unbreakable 2 & 3,” and then a teacher has been arrested in Ohio for screening “ABC’s of Death” to young teenagers. So we ask the question, when can you show your kids rated R movies?
This weeks releases include “Chappie,” “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Unfinished Business” and “Merchants of Doubt.” These movies generated a lot of hate from our film critic. Thankfully Josh saved the day by liking “Chappie.” It was one of my favorite moments on the podcast. Sean’s hate was at an all time high and Josh liked the movie and embraced his love of the movie despite Sean’s hate and it was magical…ok I’m being corny.
“The Second Best Exotic Marigold” is gentle and pleasant. Gentle and pleasant often means lazy and pointless. “Unfinished Business” will probably go down as one of the worst movies of the year. It misses the point on so many levels. At worst “Unfinished Business” should have been another unoriginal Vince Vaughn comedy, but it was much worse than that. It’s a bummer.
Then there is a documentary about “Merchants of Doubt.” It’s about how these spin doctors that have convinced half of America that Global Warming is a hoax. It’s pretty infuriating, but the people that need to see this movie won’t.
This weeks Defend It film is “A.I. Artificial Intelligence.” Josh and Sean both agree this movie is great. I can’t dispute it but I can’t help but want to see what Kubrick would have done with it. Could you imagine if you watched every movie wondering what Kubrick’s version would be like? That’s not fair to the movie.
