Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we only have one new movie so we had to improvise. “Furious 7” the latest installment of the Sean’s a hypocrite for liking these movies but not Adam Sandler movies franchise. And yes he loved “Furious 7.” That’s besides the point because we wrapped up our March Movie Madness Tournament.
Some asshole had gone and ruined the tournament by voting for every movie enough times to make them all dead locked, so we finished off the tournament without you because of one dick. “Inside Llewyn Davis” knocked out “Rocky IV” and “They Live” lived longer than “The Shining.” Unfortunately for our Cinderella story “Inside Llewyn Davis” was too strong and put an end to “They Live’s” run.
Which then brings us to our next competition. Fantasy Summer Blockbusters. There are two ways to play along at home. The first and easiest way is to latch on to one of the Critics teams. Whichever one of us wins we’ll pull the names of everybody that chose that critic out of a hat and the winner will receive an I Hate Critics mug along with a package of Rockin’ & Roastin’ coffee. There are only three mugs in the world, yours would be the fourth. The other way to play along at home is to have your own draft starting with “Furious 7” all the way through Aug 31st. On August 31st the contestant with the most money wins. If you start your own league share it with us and we’ll happily provide updates on the podcast.
Sean’s Team: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Minions, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Fantastic Four, Paul Blart 2, Spy, San Andreas, Straight Outta Compton & Magic Mike XXL
Josh’s Team: Inside Out, Ant Man, Ted 2, Terminator Genisys, Pixels, Paper Towns, Hot Pursuit, Aloha, Ricki & the Flash, Sinister 2
Bob’s Team: Jurassic World, Furious 7, Tomorrowland, Pitch Perfect 2, Poltergeist, Trainwreck, The Longest Ride, Insidious 3, Masterminds, Vacation
Our Undisputed Classic is the car chase flick “Vanishing Point.” All three of us would gladly watch “Vanishing Point” over the “Fast and the Furious” films. Quentin Tarantino recommended this movie to us and we fell for it hook line and sinker. He didn’t personally recommend it to us but we’ve heard him talk about it a lot.
Then we defended “They Live” because why not? John Carpenter made a masterpiece. It’s so much fun. Everything that is good about it is great and everything that is bad makes it so much better. Roddy Piper excels at what we can only assume was supposed to be Kurt Russell’s role. If Kurt Russell would have starred it’d have been good, but with Roddy Piper it’s a classic.
In 1985 “Alamo Bay” starring Ed Harris came out and it’s not a very good one.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Another throw away week for you good listeners. This week “Jupiter Ascending” came out and disappointed just like we thought it would. The “SpongeBob” movie took the top spot and then I Hate Critics Alum Jeff Bridges made a movie that nobody saw.
This week we’ve got a double defend it. Josh really likes “Cloud Atlas” and Sean really likes “Speed Racer.” Two films by the Washowskis that not many people either remember or like.
1985 – “Witness” starring Harrison Ford was released giving him his first and only Oscar nom. Then Kelly Preston made every man happy with her film “Mischief.” Then two other films “Lust in the Dust” and “Heaven Help Us” came out.

and if we can get 100 reviews we’ll throw in a year long subscription to Netflix.
This week “Nightcrawler” came out. Sean and Josh loved it, I hated it but for the same reasons they loved it, so at worst it’s effecting. It’s a satire on capitalism and it will piss you off. In my opinion character’s like this are more evil than serial killers and other murderers.
The other movie to come out this week was “Before I Go To Sleep.” Sean’s critic friend referred to this movie as “50 First Dates” as a thriller and it probably would have been better if Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore were in it instead of Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.
Our Undisputed Classic is “Peeping Tom.” It’s a movie that sticks with you. I didn’t like it the first time I saw it and the more I get away from it the more I like it. Sean has it among his favorite movies of all time. You should really check this movie out.
1984 – “The Killing Fields” Josh failed the sleep test and Sean thinks it’s over rated.

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Happy Valentines Day, did you enjoy “Robocop?” Oh you didn’t see it. Laurence Fishburne would be so disappointed in you. Let me guess, you either went to “The Lego Movie” (Bob did) or “About Last Night?” Yeah Kevin Hart’s pretty funny, I can’t say I blame you there.
You need to listen to Sean describe “Winter’s Tale” and tell me that doesn’t sound like the most magnificent thing you’ve ever heard of. In short its “Frozen” meets “Angel Heart.” There was one other movie but I forgot what it was.
Our undisputed classic is “Dr. Strangelove,” another Stanley Kubrick classic. I’ve decided that my favorite Kubrick movie is the last one I saw. How can “2001” not be your favorite? Well check out “The Shining,” but then check out “A Clockwork Orange” or “Dr. Strangelove.” Which one is the best? Right now since I just saw it “Dr. Strangelove.” It’s 50 years old and holds up better than most comedies and is strangely still relevant today.
This week in 1984 oops we skipped this segment, we’ll make it up to you next week I promise.
Our trailers this week are:
“Nymphomaniac Volume 1”
“Under the Skin”
