This week we’ve got three new movies. Goosebumps won the weekend but it could’ve been better. Guillermo Del Toro disappoints with Crimson Peak. It’s good, but should’ve been great. Then there was Steve Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies. It was far and away the best movie of the weekend. Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are on their way to Academy Award nominations.
Top Five this week Steven Spielberg movies. We talk Shindler’s List, Jaws, Jurassic Park, E.T., Minority Report, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Saving Private Ryan.
Rather than an Undisputed Classic we decided to challenge ourselves by checking out a Steven Spielberg film we hadn’t seen which included Duel, Munich and The Terminal…Sean’s seen The Terminal but he doesn’t like it so we made him watch it again.
In 1985 we take on The Stuff and Reanimator
Our trailers this week are:
Kill Your Friends
He Never Died
Who would have thought that in a year that includes an Avengers movie and a Star Wars movie that Jurassic World would have been the biggest movie of the year….so far? Jurassic World is one of the best monster movies I’ve seen in awhile. I was alone in thinking this however. Sean liked it but has it behind Furious 7, Avengers and Mad Max this year. In my opinion only Mad Max is better and more fun. Then there’s Josh who couldn’t not watch it as a scientific drama rather than a monster movie. His loss.
We also take a look at Kyle Smith’s article on how women can’t possibly comprehend Goodfellas. Obviously we disagree with him however what offends us more than his unintentionally sexist theme is his offensive take on Goodfellas comparing it to Entourage. Fuck you Kyle Smith.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast, a movie podcast. What do movie critics hate more than anything? Adam Sandler and tornados with sharks in them. What do idiot like Bob Zerull and this weeks guest Patrick Fineran (The Vampire Diaries Podcast) love more than anything? Tornados with sharks in them.
This week professional film critic Sean Patrick was truly upset that the movie Grown Ups 2 was made and even more upset that people went to see it. He was really bothered by the low brow humor. So Bob and this weeks guest filled the podcast with low brow humor…sorry Sean.
This weeks trailers.

Out of the Furnace
