Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we had three new movies. There was The Choice which I think is based on a Nicolas Sparks book but I could be mistaken…I wasn’t paying attention. Then there was Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. Finally The Coen Brothers are back with another gem Hail, Caesar!

Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. The Oscar nominations are out and they are all white…imagine that. Ride Along 2 won the weekend and Michael Bay attempted to make a non Michael Bay movie with 13 Hours The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.
Our Top Five this week is favorite Alan Rickman movies. He passed away this past week and we remember him by talking about Die Hard, Dogma, Harry Potter, Galaxy Quest, Love Actually and Robin Hood Prince of Thieves.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is The Man Who Fell to Earth. David Bowie also passed this week and we chose to remember him by talking about his cult classic.
In 1986 Clan of the Cave Bear, Troll, The Long Shot and Iron Eagle came out.
10 Cloverfield Lane
We’ve got two new movies this week. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation and Vacation. Mission: Impossible cleaned up during the weekend box office bringing in $58 million. Both Sean and Josh loved Mission: Impossible, they claim it’s the best action movie of the year. There’s no way that’s true because Mad Max Fury Road came out this year but whatever. Vacation really upset Sean. I personally had no problem with it. It’s not as memorable as its predecessors, but to me it’s hard to say something is or is not funny. If it’s funny to somebody then it’s funny. You can’t define funny.
Our Undisputed Classic is National Lampoon’s Vacation
In 1985 Fright Night, Weird Science, Sesame Street Presents Follow that Bird
Our trailers this week are:
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. So this week “Transformers 4” came out. It’s not a fun week for movie snobs. Sean had to see, God knows why Josh wasted the time and money to go see it. Apparently he loves this podcast more than I or he just likes to be angry. We did see a couple of other movies. Josh saw “Enemy” and he was super excited to talk about it.
This weeks Undisputed Classic is the Marilyn Monroe film “Some Like it Hot.” I call it a Marilyn Monroe film because her name is all over the cover, but really it’s a Tony Curtis and Jack Lemon film. Josh and Sean were quit to call it a classic. I was ok calling it a classic, but only if we’re going to treat movies like “Dumb and Dumber” and “Tommy Boy” etc etc like this 50 years from now.
In 1984 teenage boys were introduced to Tawny Kitaen. It took me another ten years, but i got there. “Bachelor Party” came out. Who cares that Tom Hanks was in this movie because Tawny Kitaen was the most beautiful woman in the world back in the 80’s and that’s all that mattered. Plus “Cannonball Run 2” and “Conan the Destroyer” came out.
The Fury – Brad Pitt
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The Prince – Jason Patrick, Bruce Willis, John Cusak
Into the Storm
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Our March Movie Madness has made it to the final four with “Rocky” squaring off against “Almost Famous” and “Fight Club” taking on “Field of Dreams.” This week saw the film “Noah” wash away the competition (so dumb) with a great box office week, but not a great movie…not a bad movie, but just big budget blockbuster, not something you’d expect from Darren Aronofsky, but definitely something you’d expect from Russell Crowe. At least it wasn’t “Sabotage,” because according to Sean and the rest of the free world…that movie sucked.
The best movie to come out in our neck of the woods is “Bad Words” according to Sean. First time director Jason Bateman knocked it out of the park, so that’s exciting. I spent four hours late Saturday night watching both volumes 1 and 2 of Lars Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac.” I can’t decide if it’s good or bad, but it’s intriguing. I feel like whether you liked it or hated it, Von Trier got his point across and that’s all you can really ask for.
This week there was also a great article over at www.rogerebert.com begging film critics to actually talk about filmmaking rather than just how they (the critic) was affected emotionally by the movie, which Sean blamed on Harry Knowles and 9-11.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Breathless.” This movie left Josh breathless (sorry I got nothing). Actually Sean left Josh “Breathless” after Sean talked about how much he loved this film.
In 1984 “Romancing the Stone” came out. Josh and Sean love this film while I am sick of it for the same reasons they love it…go figure.
Trailers this week:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
