This week we’ve got several new movies. Diane Keaton remade every other movie she’s made over the last ten years with Love the Coopers. Sean wasn’t thrilled. The 33 is a Lifetime like movie that made it to the theaters. It’s pretty good, but it’s not a very gritty story…it’s just warm and fuzzy. Suffragette was an ok that was supposed to be great about the early feminist movement. My All American is a Christian film that also happens to be the best film of the weekend. It’s Rudyesque but the direction is a little amateur. Knock Knock is the new Eli Roth film that is so bad it’s amazing. Keanu Reeves redefines bad acting. It’s actually so bad that it’s good. I Smile Back is the new Sarah Silverman movie. It’s not a comedy what so ever. Silverman is great in it, the movies great. It’ll probably end up on the outside looking in come award season, but that shouldn’t take anything away from this movie.
Top Five this week is Feminist movies.
For our Undisputed Classic this week is “Brian’s Song.”
In 1985 Once Bitten
Our trailers this week are:
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week not much came out. Will Smith made a con movie called Focus. It’s fine, but like most cons, the con is sloppy and it’s not necessarily entertaining enough to take your focus off of the con like “Oceans 11.” Then there was a horror film called “Lazarus Effect” that Josh hated so much he called it potentially the worst movie he’s ever seen.
Our beloved/hated film critic Sean Patrick had a near death experience this week. He had a massive asthma attack that put him in the hospital for six days. At one point he actually lost the ability to breath and had to have machines breath for him for several hours. He’s back and he’s doing better so hopefully he stays that way.
We lost Leonard Nimoy famous as Spock from “Star Trek.” RIP Spock, “Live long in prosper.”
The Academy Award winning film “Still Alice” also got released in theaters. Julianne Moore won best actress. Sean thinks it was a great performance, but had three or four other performances he preferred. Sean compared it to a Lifetime movie with great acting.
Our Undisputed Classic is “The Sting.” Stars Robert Redford and Paul Newman make “The Sting” highly entertaining. Josh loved it the most, Sean tried to pick it a part and Bob enjoyed it.
1985 – Several movies came out. The best two movies are Woody Allen’s “Purple Rose of Cairo,” and John Cusak in “The Sure Thing.”

The Resurrection of Jake Roberts
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast Bonus episode. We’ve got SIX new movies to talk about this week, but really only one matters and that’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Holy Shit was that fun. We also talked about “Wish I Was Here,” “Get On Up,” “Snowpiercer,” “A Most Wanted Man” all of which the majority of us found good to great. Then there was #Sharknado2.
This weeks Does It Hold Up is “The Dark Knight Rises.” This is the movie that started the podcast and once again I (Bob) was right.
We skipped 1984 because we had seven movies to talk about.
