This week we’ve got several new movies. It’s Hunger Games week. While not as many people went to go see this movie it’s actually far and away the best of the series. It’s timing is perfect and it’s really well done. Spotlight is an incredible movie, one of the years best. Everybody in the movie is award worthy. The Secret in their Eyes is a little disappointing, but only because it could’ve been amazing. The Night Before is hilarious.
Top Five this week is journalists in the movies: We talk about Clark Kent, Alexander Knox, Billy Batson, Sweet Polly Purebred, The Paper, Broadcast News, Almost Famous, Anchorman, His Girl Friday, The Insider, Citizen Kane and more.
For our Undisputed Classic we take on Battle Royale
In 1985 White Knights
Our trailers this week are:
How to be Single
Gods of Egypt
Star Wars – Honest Trailer
Avengers Age of Ultron has finally been released. Josh and I watched it with a very critical eye. The action was unintelligible, the dialogue was not strong, the story line connecting all these movies together has major holes in it. Then Sean, our resident film critic managed to watch the movie for what it was, a summer blockbuster that is a lot of fun. You say tomato I say…this doesn’t work as well when you type it out.
Nathan Rabin has been canned by The Dissolve
Robert Downey Jr shits on indie film.
Mae Whitman passed over in “Independence Day 2”
The Baltimore Riots and “The Purge”
Our Does it Hold Up segment was inspired by Bruce Jenner. We took a look at Hedwig and the Angry Inch and The Crying Game. Hedwig and the Angry Inch is truly one of the great rock musicals of all time while the offensive marketing campaign really ruins The Crying Game experience.
1985 – Chuck Norris is Chuck Norris in Code of Silence. But it would have been awesome if he was in Gymkata. Anthony Edwards made Gotcha and Johnny Depp did Private Resort.
Fifty Shades Darker
The Irrational Man
Throw Back Thursday
Welcome to the I Hate Critics movie podcast, a movie podcast greater than your average movie podcast. This week we talk about “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Delivery Man” and “Inside Llewyn Davis.” The biggest movie of the weekend happens to be the worst movie of the weekend, but it’s not bad, it’s just a young adult story which means it has no balls and if you poke at it enough it falls apart. That said Jennifer Lawrence is on the verge of becoming a great actress and if for no other reason check it out to see her work.
“Delivery Man” is a solid Vince Vaughn film. I miss the days when he took more risks, but it could be worse, he could be Adam Sandler. Sean saw “Inside Llewyn Davis” and called it the perfect movie. Josh and i thought about ending him out of pure jealousy, but then we might never get to see it.
Our undisputed classic this week was “Oldboy.” Josh saw it twice. This weeks segment was my proudest moment in all of our podcasts. If you don’t leave that segment wanting…needing to see the original “Oldboy” then we’ve done something wrong. Josh missed a huge plot point in the movie that when he figured it out…which he does live on this podcast it all clicks and is a magical moment that we caught. You need to see this movie.
In 1983 “Terms of Endearment” began its reign as one of the most overrated films of all time while “Of Unknown Origin” took over Sean’s mind.
Our trailers this week our:
“The Muppets Most Wanted”
“Best Night Ever”
“Need for Speed”
