Ant-Man & Trainwreck

0

On this episode of I Hate Critics we’ve got two new movies: Ant-Man came out this week opposite Trainwreck, Minions, Jurassic World, Inside Out. It still managed to bring in $60 million which people are saying is good bad, but really it’s pretty good. It’s not Guardians of the Galaxy, but who would really complain about a $60 million opening. The other movie to come out was the Amy Schumer/Judd Apatow vehicle Trainwreck. Ant-Man was fine, but Trainwreck is the best comedy of the year so far. If you’re a fan of Amy Schumer and or Judd Apatow then Trainwreck is a must see.

Our Undisputed Classic is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. We spend the whole segment bad mouthing women who like this film. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a highly racist film that we were unable to get into or understand why people like.

In 1985 The Coca Cola Kid starring Eric Roberts came out and we probably spent more time on this movie than any of the other movies.

Our trailers this week are:

Sisters
Suicide Squad
The Fantastic Four
The Revenant
Joy

SpongeBob Ascending

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Another throw away week for you good listeners. This week “Jupiter Ascending” came out and disappointed just like we thought it would. The “SpongeBob” movie took the top spot and then I Hate Critics Alum Jeff Bridges made a movie that nobody saw.

This week we’ve got a double defend it. Josh really likes “Cloud Atlas” and Sean really likes “Speed Racer.” Two films by the Washowskis that not many people either remember or like.

1985 – “Witness” starring Harrison Ford was released giving him his first and only Oscar nom. Then Kelly Preston made every man happy with her film “Mischief.” Then two other films “Lust in the Dust” and “Heaven Help Us” came out.

The Big Lebowski 2: Inherent Vice

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week “Taken 3” came out. At some point I mention that I’m pretty sure I could take Liam Neeson and that’s my biggest problem with the “Taken” movies. But what I’m excited to talk about is “Selma” and “Inherent Vice.” Two of the best movies of the year got wide releases this week. I also finally saw “Boyhood.”

InherentVice

The “Golden Globes” were this week, but we recorded before the show, so you’ll get our take next week.

Our Undisputed Classic is “Annie Hall.” My biggest problem with Woody Allen movies prior to seeing them is that I don’t by Woody Allen being with these beautiful women, but once you watch these movies you never question it for a second. “Annie Hall” has been remade so many times since it’s come out that it’s impossible to appreciate what it was when it first came out. But it’s a great movie and very easy to watch.

1985 – “Avenging Angel,” “Tuff Turf,”

Godzilla’s Tears in Heaven

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week the mighty “Godzilla” came out. Prior to the film coming out Bob and Josh were stoked to see it, but Sean was hesitant. Now that we’ve all seen it Bob and Sean loved and Josh is hesitant to say he liked it. “Million Dollar Arm” came out this week as well. Sean says Disney should stop making sports movies…unless Kurt Russell is in them.

Our Undisputed Classic is “Rashomon.” it’s a ground breaking movie in that it is one of the first Japanese films to infiltrate western culture. Both Josh and Sean loved it.

This week in 1984 “Finder’s Keeper” and “Making the Grade” came out.
