Straight Outta Compton A Film Critic Named Sean Patrick

0

This week we’ve got two new movies: Straight Outta Compton and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Straight Outta Compton is a phenomenal movie. It’s come out at the perfect time. Just like hip hop in general this movie is not going to get the credit it deserves when Oscar season comes around. The performances are incredible. This movie is on par with films like Ray and Walk the Line. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is a good movie that you’re going to forget by next week, classic Guy Ritchie.

Inside Out, Dope, Love & Mercy

0

Jurassic World is still destroying the box office but that didn’t stop Inside Out from being the second biggest Pixar opening of all time. Inside Out was loved by all three of us. It was so much that both Sean and Josh are considering calling it the best movie of the year so far. That’s saying a lot with Cinderella, Ex Machina, and Love and Mercy already out this year not to mention Mad Max: Fury Road, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Jurassic World kicking ass as blockbusters.

Dope is an indie film that did well on the festival circuit. Sean really enjoyed the movie and recommends it. Then there was Love and Mercy, the Brian Wilson story. What an intriguing movie. It may be my favorite film of the year thus far. Needless to say it was a good week for movies. If you don’t know the Brian Wilson story then this is a must see, hell even if you know it you’ll be impressed…I say that as someone who knew the story.

We asked our audience their top five favorite Pixar movies. Among those chosen was Up, Wall-E, Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, Toy Story 3, Cars, The Incredibles etc.

Our Undisputed Classic was “Being John Malkovich.” This is one of the more underrated films of the 90’s. It’s beloved and it holds up but it’s become second fiddle to movies like Pulp Fiction and The Big Lebowski and it doesn’t need to. It’s a phenomenal movie with phenomenal performances.

1985 – Cocoon, Lifeforce, Return to Oz

Trailers:

Sicario
Dark Places
Daddy’s Home

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Divides our Podcast

0

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. We’ve had our first fight. It was over “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” Sean liked the movie a lot, Josh thought it was the best Spiderman movie period and I was kind of disappointed. The only thing all of us could agree on was that the ending was pretty bad ass. Then Sean and I saw “Walk of Shame.” Sean disliked this movie so much that it made him angry which made me like it that much more.

Our Undisputed Classic this week is “The Conversation.” As Sean puts it, “The Conversation” was made by Francis Ford Coppola back when he still made good movies.

In 1984 Sixteen Candles, Hard Bodies, Breaking

Anchorman 2 & American Hustle = Good For Movie Podcast

0

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we talk about “Anchorman 2,” “American Hustle,” “Saving Mr. Banks” and for whatever reason “Walking with Dinosaurs.” “Anchorman 2” is one of the great comedies of 2013. “American Hustle” is one of the great movies of 2013. Sean ranks it very high and I (Bob) have it topping my list. Amy Adams deserves an Oscar, but the stupid Critics Choice didn’t even nominate her. Oh well. See this movie.

“Saving Mr. Banks” is a great movie, but if you are bothered by historical accuracy is a movie you should steer clear of, otherwise enjoy Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson. “Walking with Dinosaurs” might be the worst movie of 2013…keep in mind Sean hasn’t seen “Canyons.”

Our Undisputed Classic was “Lawrence of Arabia.” With the passing of Peter O’Toole we thought it only be appropriate to talk about his best work and arguably one of the best acting performances of all time. Josh is very passionate about the film and Sean said there really is something to seeing it on a big screen that brings it to life. The verdict? It’s an undisputed classic.

In 1983 Joel Schumacher gave us “D.C. Cab” starring Adam Baldwin and Mr. T. Is there anything else I need to say?

Our Trailers are:

“The Polar Bear Movie”

“Welcome to Yesterday”

“22 Jump Street”

“Blended”

“Transcendence”

“The Grand Budapest Hotel”

“Expendables 3”
