American Sniper: The Saddest Billionaire

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. People are still dogging on “American Sniper” and I find it annoying as does Sean and Josh. Blackhat starring Australian Chris Hemsworth is not going to be released in Australia. Johnny Depp said he’s not going to piggy back off of his fame is to be a musician.

The biggest hit of the weekend is Jennifer Lopez in “The Boy Next Door.” She is not naked in this movie, but there is some impressive hidden nudity according to Sean, but that’s all there is to appreciate. Rob Cohen is the director and the movie is basically too competent to be bad but too bad to be good, so it sucks. If it wasn’t as competent as it is it could be fun bad.

Mordecai came out and turned out it was just about Johnny Depp’s mustache. The whole movie is dedicated to his mustache, which means it’s kind of boring. It’s not snappy, the pace sucks, the chemistry is lacking. Ewen McGregor is the only one who knows what movies he’s in.

George Lucas produced kind of a weird crappy movie called “Strange Magic.” It was a mess. Go ahead and skip this one. Disney released it, but didn’t even put their name on it.

Sean use to love Johnny Depp in “From Hell,” so he’s taking another look at it to see if it holds up. He wondered what he was thinking after revisiting it.

1985 – Fandango, Falcon and The Snowman came out.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. An unexpected blockbuster came out this week in “American Sniper.”

While “American Sniper” tore it up at the box office, “The Wedding Ringer,” and “Paddington” were serviceable. Michael Mann’s “Blackhat” was a dud.

The Academy Award nominations were announced. Josh and Sean are very upset.

Since Michael Mann’s “Blackhat” came out this week Josh decided he wanted to defend Michael Mann’s “Miami Vice.”

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast. We watched two movies this week, Old Man Washington’s “The Equalizer,” and the family friendly “Box Trolls. “The Equalizer” over performed because it made more money than it’s worth and “The Box Trolls” under performed in that it was worth way more than it made.

This week Josh defends “Man on Fire” another Old Man Washington film. He loves the movies potential, Sean and I hate it because of it’s potential to be good.

In 1984 three some what small movies came out: “Heartbreakers,” Irreconcilable Differences,” “The Wild Life” which was written by Cameron Crowe
