Have you ever seen a movie and knew it was great but for whatever reason didn’t like it as much as you should have? That’s how I felt about “Ex Machina.” It’s far and away my favorite movie so far in 2015, but I didn’t love it. It’s complex subject matter yet simplistic story threw me off, but I’m in the minority on the “I Hate Critics” movie review podcast as Josh and Sean loved it.
There were two other movies that came out to Sean’s dismay. “Age of Adaline” is a fine movie with such an unnecessary plot point that it takes you out of the movie. The plot point was so much more unnecessary than all the words that I’m using in my show notes…I learned that at the New Media Expo, but I didn’t fix it. The there was “Little Boy” starring the cast of “Paul Blart Mall Cop 2.”
In the news this week we lost a beloved Film Critic, we saw pictures of Jared Leto’s Joker and some of the cast walked off the set of “Ridiculous Six” because they were offended by the jokes. Mean while Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner didn’t make the news because all they did was make a joke about a woman and it’s ok to be sexist…just not racist…even for a joke.
Our Undisputed Classic is “Odd Man Out.” A film so old and out dated that it failed the sleep test. Josh and Sean appreciated it but didn’t love it.
In 1985 “Just One of the Guys” came out and marked the first time our beloved cohost Josh saw a pair of boobs. “Stick” also came out starring Burt Reynolds. It was based off of an Elmore Leonard novel but Burt Reynold’s arrogance and misogyny pretty much ruined any chance that movie had. Something else came out but it is unimportant.
