There’s a silly rumor about Colin Trevorrow losing the “Star Wars” gig because of an indie film called “Book of Henry” not being well received despite “Jurassic World” being a massive success.

Withnail & I – London, 1969 – two ‘resting’ (unemployed and unemployable) actors, Withnail and Marwood, fed up with damp, cold, piles of washing-up, mad drug dealers and psychotic Irishmen, decide to leave their squalid Camden flat for an idyllic holiday in the countryside, courtesy of Withnail’s uncle Monty’s country cottage. But when they get there, it rains non-stop, there’s no food, and their basic survival skills turn out to be somewhat limited. Matters are not helped by the arrival of Uncle Monty, who shows an uncomfortably keen interest in Marwood… (94% ROTTEN TOMATOES) https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/withnail_and_i

Undisputed Classic: The Hustler
1986 The Color of Money
This weeks episode is a downer. Pixels disappoints, Southpaw & Paper Towns are to formulaic. Mr. Holmes is great but nobody has seen it. Adam Sandler is almost single handedly the only thing wrong with Pixels and that breaks my heart. I want to accuse Sean of being a dumb critics, but his audience didn’t even go and see Pixels so I can’t defend Sandler. Jake Gyllenhaal is amazing in Southpaw, but the movie is kind of dumb. It was written for Eminem and oddly enough would have been a better movie if Eminem was in the movie. It’s all Gyllenhaal’s fault. Paper Towns is fine. Again we’ve seen it before, it’s a formula. It’s forgettable which kind of makes it worse than a bad movie. At least its not Fault in Our Stars or something by Nicolas Sparks. Then there is Mr. Holmes starring Ian McKellan as Sherlock Holmes. Mr. Holmes is such a unique interesting movie that everyone should go see right now.
Our Undisputed Classic is Rebel Without A Cause. Sean explains why this movie has held up and is such a great classic. I had a hard time getting into it but I can’t argue against anything Sean says. He even does a pretty good job of explaining why I don’t think it holds up.

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. In the news this week, Steven Spielberg to direct “Ready Player One.” “Fifty Shades Darker” gets a new director because author EL James was a pain in the ass. Hugh Jackman says he is done with “Wolverine” after the new movie. Idris Elba may play the next “Star Trek” villain. There’s a possible “Office” movie starring Ricky Gervais. Finally the website “Film Threat” funded by Chris Gore is doing a kick starter campaign to keep the site up and running.
The new movies this week include “Home,” “Get Hard,” and “It Follows.” Josh and I have kids and we got out of this movie, but Sean still had to go and it’s not bad. It’s not Pixar, but it’s got enough heart. Rent it for your kids when it comes out.
“Get Hard” is an awful movie with two really funny guys in it which makes it watchable, but hell I’d just watch Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell do the late night circuit. “It Follows” is the independent horror that got so much buzz that it got a wide release. It’s fine, we all appreciate it on different levels but it’s not a game changer by any means. It’s a meta movie and then some.
Our Undisputed Classic is the Paul Newman classic “Cool Hand Luke.” For the first time Sean hadn’t seen the classic but Josh and I had. Josh and I loved it Sean liked it…a little. Sean’s wrong though.
