This week we’ve got two new movies this week. He Named me Malala is a great documentary by David Guggenheim about the insanely brave Malala. Pan also came out but nobody seemed to notice. I’m not even sure the filmmakers realized they were making a movie. It is however Hugh Jackman’s birthday so Happy Birthday Hugh, here’s the biggest bomb of your career.
Rather than an Undisputed Classic we decided to challenge ourselves by checking out a Hugh Jackman film we hadn’t seen which included Prisoners, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Fountain.
In 1985 we take on Sliver Bullet & Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins
Our trailers this week are:
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
This week we’ve got four new movies this week. The Martian, Sicario, The Walk and Hell and Back. The first three movies are fantastic. The Walk was released in IMAX only and it didn’t do very but it’s a fantastic film. We highly recommend checking it out. The Martian and Sicario also came out and they are two of the best films of the year so far. They’ll most likely be overlooked come award season which is unfortunate. Then there is Hell and Back which nobody knew about and Sean didn’t find funny.
Our Undisputed Classic is Solaris. Yes there are multiple Solaris films. We talk about the 1972 and the 2002 version and we had a really great conversation about these films and about Science Fiction in general.
In 1985 we take on Commando and Jagged Edge
Our trailers this week are:
Ip Man 3
The way we do our Fall Movie Preview is we have a Fantasy Movie Draft because well we’re nerds.
We talk about: Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Hunger Games: The Mocking Jay Part 2, Spectre, Bridge of Spies, The Peanuts Movie, The Martian, Our Brand is Crisis, Spotlight, Brooklyn, The Good Dinosaur, The Hateful Eight, The Danish Girl, Steve Jobs, The Revenant, The Walk, Pan, SIcario, Concussion, Carol, Joy, In the Heart of the Sea, Goosebumps, The Big Short, Creed, Krampus, Crimson Peak, Burnt, Jem and the Holograms, Rock the Kasbah, Room, Truth, By the Sea, and Paranormal Activity.
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.
