San Andreas The Rock Fights an Earthquake & Cameron Crowe

0

San Andreas was this weeks big release. It’s basically The Rock fighting an earthquake. It’s highly entertaining while being highly offensive…which makes it hard for Sean to admit he likes it. Sean generally has no problem admitting to liking or disliking something but he was so offended by “San Andreas” that he was kind of embarrassed for having fun.

Cameron Crowe is back with “Aloha.” When the studio that made this movie trashes the movie via email then those emails go public a week before the movie comes out you know you’re in for a long day. The movies not complete. There’s something brilliant somewhere there but we’re not sure if it’s still in Cameron Crowe’s head or on the cutting room floor.

Have you seen Kung Fury yet…go see it as soon as you’re done with this podcast.

We asked our audience their favorite Cameron Crowe films. Among the movies selected we had “Untitled” or “Almost Famous,” “Say Anything” and “Singles.

Our Undisputed Classic was Cameron Crowe themed and we took a look at “Jerry Maguire,” “Elizabethtown” and “Pearl Jam 20.”

Disney’s “Frozen” is Van Damme Impressive

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Tribute to Jean Claude Van Damme Podcast. This week “Catching Fire” won the box office, but Frozen did great and could even get nominated for an Oscar, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad and Idina Menzel perform some of the best songs in a Disney movie since “The Lion King.” The movie looks great in 2D but in 3D its pinnacle.

FRZN_IceLogo_Teaser_1s_v8.0C_Composed-e1371669744405

Possibly the best movie of the weekend, “Homefront.” “Homefront” is about southern red neck justice, but James Franco tries too hard, he’s just supposed to be there to get punched, instead he acts. This movie annoys Josh. Sean is somewhat impressed with the heart in the songs from “Black Nativity.” You can feel Jennifer Hudson’s pain when she sings so much so that we feel that’s the reason she got kicked out of “American Idol” as soon as she did.

Sean got to see “Her” and Josh and I weren’t too happy about that because we want to see it. This movie and the performances should be around when the award time comes; unfortunately Scarlett Johansson is not eligible for the Golden Globe, but who cares The Golden Globes is a joke anyway. It’s an interesting question to ask namely because that’s the same question raised throughout this movie.

Penn & Teller produced a film called Tim’s Vermeer. A man named Tim Jenison became obsessed with the 17th century painter Johannes Vermeer. Jenison who never painted in his life uses the same strategy as Vermeer used (which is essentially tracing),it’s still art, but Carrot Top is still a comic.

Our Undisputed Classic was “The Godfather” largely due to the fact that it was Thanksgiving weekend and we released two podcasts last week. Plus “The Godfather” is on everything Thanksgiving. We lazily talk about it, but we still talk about it.

In 1983 John Carpenter’s “Christine” came out. While it was successful at the time I feel like it’s one of Carpenter’s underrated films. “Halloween,” “Escape from New York” and “The Thing” are great, but I think “Christine” is really good.

Our Trailers are:

Enemies Closer – It looks so bad it’s probably fantastic

Welcome to the Jungle – dumb

Bella Kiss Prologue – Dumb movie impressive trailer considering how dumb the movie looks. It’s getting released to You Tube.

Hercules The Legend Begins – Dumb

Son of God – Jesus looks really good

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty – I really want to see it

I Hate Critics Ep. 12 – “Spring Breakers” “Admission” & “Olympus Has Fallen”

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast, a movie podcast. “Spring Breakers” came out this weekend and for the most part, critics loved it. Tina Fey and Paul Rudd can do no wrong, but that doesn’t mean a movie starring them is good…it’s just not bad.

“Olympus Has Fallen” might be the dumbest most insulting movie ever.

Bob rented “This is 40” and Sean called it fat but really good. Sean introduced a new segment called thirty year old movie reviews. This week we checked out “Spring Break,” “The Outsiders” and “Bad Boys” (the one with Sean Penn).
