The Critics Are Wrong, Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice is Good

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. On this 194th episode of the podcast we talk about Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice for the second time. We briefly talk about My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, but then we move onto our third annual March Movie Madness tournament. This year we took sixteen movies, some of which were suggested by the audience and between the three of us decided which movies moved on to the next round. The only requirement was that we had to pick movies we’d never talked about on the podcast before…or at least movies we don’t remember talking about.

Batman-v-Superman-Dawn-of-Justice-poster

The movies were:

Citizen Kane vs Paths of Glory
Swingers vs Gross Pointe Blank
Good Will Hunting vs Punch Drunk Love
LA Confidential vs The Verdict
Fargo vs O’ Brother Where Art Thou
Glengarry Glen Ross vs Hard Candy
Waking Live vs Monsieur Lazhar
The Silence of the Lambs vs Phantasm

Let us know where we messed up.

The Big Lebowski 2: Inherent Vice

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week “Taken 3” came out. At some point I mention that I’m pretty sure I could take Liam Neeson and that’s my biggest problem with the “Taken” movies. But what I’m excited to talk about is “Selma” and “Inherent Vice.” Two of the best movies of the year got wide releases this week. I also finally saw “Boyhood.”

InherentVice

The “Golden Globes” were this week, but we recorded before the show, so you’ll get our take next week.

Our Undisputed Classic is “Annie Hall.” My biggest problem with Woody Allen movies prior to seeing them is that I don’t by Woody Allen being with these beautiful women, but once you watch these movies you never question it for a second. “Annie Hall” has been remade so many times since it’s come out that it’s impossible to appreciate what it was when it first came out. But it’s a great movie and very easy to watch.

1985 – “Avenging Angel,” “Tuff Turf,”

Birdman’s not Dumb or Dumber

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. We’ve got a brand new website, a brand new iTunes logo. We’re launching a campaign on iTunes to get more ratings and reviews. If you rate and review our podcast you’ll be entered into a contest where you can win:

An autographed DVD of “Cadaver Christmas”
Jeff Bridges and the Abider’s Live CD
A Movie poster from A24 Distribution
Two tickets to the movie of your choice

We will also give out five additional signed copies of “A Cadaver Christmas” as well as the the chance to produce a bonus episode. What does that mean? It means you decide the movies we talk about.

and if we can get 100 reviews we’ll throw in a year long subscription to Netflix.

Birdman-Poster

This week “Dumb and Dumber To” came out and knocked “Big Hero 6” out of the top spot. We also got the chance to see “Birdman.” Sean also had to watch Kirk Camerson’s “Saving Christmas.” Then we may or may not talk about a movie called “Beyond the Lights.” See I’m writing these notes before we ever recorded the podcast this week, so we will see.

Since we got to see “Birdman” this week we decided to ask, does 1989’s “Batman” hold up?

Fantasy Movie Draft

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast. This episode only one new movie came out and I don’t know why it came out so we had to scramble to fill time. Sean had been sitting on this idea of a Fantasy Movie Draft so we spend the first half of the podcast drafting movies for the fall and winter box office and award season, so be sure to check our Facebook page for results of that.

The movie that came out this week is called “The Identical” and it is perhaps one of the worst ideas I’ve ever heard. I don’t know how this movie was made let alone released…theatrically, but it was and you have to hear Sean praise this movie.

Because there was only one movie we doubled up on our segments and did a Does it Hold Up film with ‘Forrest Gump” and a Defend It film “Cabin Fever.” I (Bob) liked “Cabin Fever” but I was alone and we all despised “Forrest Gump”
