Hail, The Coen Brothers!

Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we had three new movies. There was The Choice which I think is based on a Nicolas Sparks book but I could be mistaken…I wasn’t paying attention. Then there was Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. Finally The Coen Brothers are back with another gem Hail, Caesar!

Ex Machina Delivers for A24

0

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.

Critics Hath No Fury

0

Thanks for listening to the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we take on five new movies. The big movie this week is Brad Pitt and “Fury.” Josh and Sean both like it, but more on a graphic novel level than a war movie level, but Josh finally gets on the board in our fantasy game. The best movie of the weekend is the Guillermo del Toro produced kids movie “Book of Life.” Hopefully this movie can stick around during Oscar season.

“Best of Me” based on a Nicolas Sparks book is so bad Sean loves it. Jason Retiman’s “Men, Women, and Children” is actually pretty good. Sean was floored by it. Then there is a Christian movie with the cast of “Night Court” called “Matter of Faith.”

Our Defend It movie is “Summer of Sam.” Sean defends this against other critics. Josh and Bob for the most part watch it for the first time. Josh loved it and Bob just liked it.

In 1984 there are some forgettable movies and “The Razor’s Edge” with Bill Murray

22 Jump Street & Mexican Charlton Heston

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week the two big movies out our “22 Jump Street” and “How to Train Your Dragon 2.” Surprisingly the juvenile comedy kicked the dragons ass at the box office. There wasn’t a whole lot going on this week so we decided to choose in draft form our movie team using Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill movies. The results are as follows

Sean’s Team:

This is the End
The Lego Movie
Magic Mike
The Sitter
Wolf of Wall Street

Josh’s Team:

Public Enemies
Money Ball
How to Train Your Dragon
War of the Worlds
Don Jon

Bob’s Team:
Superbad
The 40 Year Old Virgin
I Heart Huckabees
Knocked Up
Django Unchained

Our Undisputed Classic is the highly overrated “Touch of Evil.” Sean is the most forgiving but that’s only because he’s a film critic and he has to pretend to be (Sean doesn’t read these so I can say whatever I want)

Nothing of note came out in 1984
