Oscar Recap, Call Your Mom & Stay Weird

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Oscar recap show. It’s late, we’re all three exhausted and it shows. The Oscars are just two damn long. “Birdman” wins the night. I think the three of us differ on how good “Birdman” is, it’s my favorite of the movies nominated, I think it’s a little lower on Josh and Sean’s list. We all three agree that “Gone Girl” is the best movie of the year, but what are you going to do?

Some memorable moments in the show include JK Simmons telling us to call our moms. Patricia Arquette asking for equal women’s rights, it’s sad that in 2015 this is still an issue. Common delivered one of the most powerful speeches of the night and the writer of “The Imitation Game” deserved to win another award for his acceptance speech.

It’s weird, there’s not much to complain about. I was entertained enough, but it was just so long. I apologize if we’re not completely with it this episode…we’ll get them next time.

Please Go See “Gone Girl”

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week quite possibly the best movie of the year came out, “Gone Girl.” This movie has jumped David Fincher to the best working director in my opinion. I think Josh shares that point of view as well. “Gone Girl” is so good that I want you to see so we can talk about it.

Also “Annabelle” came out. Only Sean saw it and he hates ghost stories, so he hated “Annabelle.” Then there was “Left Behind” and it wasn’t even fun bad. It was just a mess…sorry about that.

It’s October so we’re going to knock out a couple of horror films and we’re gonna start with 1922’s “Nosferatu.” All three of us loved it and agreed that technology has ruined horror films.

In 1984 “Stranger than Paradise,” “Teacher,” ‘The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of Yik Yak”

A Million Ways Bob Could Kick Denzel’s Ass

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week Sean and Josh see “Maleficent” and Sean and I see “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” The verdict is Jolie good, MacFarlane bad (Sean still thought he was funny). I’m not sure when, but at some point in the show I claim I can kick Denzel Washington’s ass…not sure how that even came up.

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Seth Rogen’s new movie “The Neighbors” was released, Josh and Sean went to see it and both said it’s a great start to the summer comedy season. They both all ranked it among Seth Rogen’s finest films which is exciting. Also released this week is “The Legends of Oz” which is nothing more than a cash grab…oh well.

ZZZZ

Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Chinatown.” “Chinatown” is truly one of the greatest films ever made, it’s incredible that both Josh and I had never seen it. Jack Nicholson is in top form.

In 1984 “The Natural,” “Fire Starter”
