Welcome to The I Hate Critics. It’s award season so lets talk about the comedy of the year “Hercules.” “Hercules” should have advertised itself as a comedy. This is a wanna bee “300” with no fun. “Lone Survivor” took a real life story and took it a little too “Ramboy.” Then Bob goes on to wonder what every movie would look like if Peter Berg directed it.
Speaking of disappointment, “August: Osage County.” It’s probably good on the stage, but not so much on the screen. Sean’s top two movies of the year are “Her” and “Inside Llewyn Davis.” Josh and I can’t argue with him. Both movies are award worthy. We had such a good time talking about these two films.
Our undisputed classic is “Amelie.” This is a romantic comedy that is also an art film. Everybody I know that has seen this loves this movie and it surprises me that they love this movie, but it really is that good.
This week in 1984 a soft-core porn named “Hot Dog…The Movie.” There was a wet t-shirt contest in it. Our contest this week is to come up with a movie that made it to the theater that includes a wet t shirt contest since “Real Cancun” not including “Piranha 3D.”
Our trailers this week are:
“Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden”
Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. The next installment of “The Avengers” franchise was released in “Thor: The Dark World.” While the movie is fine if you turn your brain off, it is full of holes that will make it hard for some to get past. Ultimately the movie was just a set up for the next “Avengers” film rather than a movie on its own. “About Time” is another film that came out this weekend. It’s a romantic comedy that is watchable for both genders.
The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “Blade Runner.” Josh is a Ridley Scott nut and “Blade Runner” is probably his finest work. It’s certainly his biggest cult classic. Does that make it an “Undisputed Classic?” I think so, but who am I?
In movie news the original director for “Jane’s Got a Gun” is being sued. “The Wolverine” is getting a direct sequel, “Gravity” is the number one film in the history of October and David Cronenberg called Stanley Kubrick a hack…sort of.
Check out our trailers this week: “These Final Hours,” “Lone Survivor,” “Winter’s Tale,” “A Case of You,” “The Raid 2,” “Lucky McKee’s All Cheerleaders Die,” and “The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug.”
