Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. This Tom Hanks takes an impressive real life story and gives it a taste of Hollywood while most likely grabbing another Oscar nomination. While Mel Gibson got a taste of what his career had become in “Machete Kills.” I for one love the grind house style films that Robert Rodriguez, but it sounds that even if you’re like me, you’re probably not going to care for “Machete Kills.”
This episode it was me (Bob Zerull), Film Critic Sean Patrick, Josh Adams from the Film Fan Perspective and our special guest was Faith.
The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “Das Boot.” Classic is a strong word this World War 2 submarine movie. It’s very long, you find yourself rooting for Nazi’s and it’s unanimously agreed that this works best as a mini series.
In this week in 1983 we got Robert Altman’s “Streamers,” an underrated film that was ahead of its time.
