Who would have thought that in a year that includes an Avengers movie and a Star Wars movie that Jurassic World would have been the biggest movie of the year….so far? Jurassic World is one of the best monster movies I’ve seen in awhile. I was alone in thinking this however. Sean liked it but has it behind Furious 7, Avengers and Mad Max this year. In my opinion only Mad Max is better and more fun. Then there’s Josh who couldn’t not watch it as a scientific drama rather than a monster movie. His loss.
We also take a look at Kyle Smith’s article on how women can’t possibly comprehend Goodfellas. Obviously we disagree with him however what offends us more than his unintentionally sexist theme is his offensive take on Goodfellas comparing it to Entourage. Fuck you Kyle Smith.
The I Hate Critics podcast has been asked to be a part of Lebowski Fest in Milwaukee Wisconsin the weekend of Aug 21 and 22nd. Please if you’re in the area we’d love to hang out and get to know some of you.
We asked the audience in honor of Jurassic Wolrd being released this week, what their favorite monster movies were. We talked about your movies as well as King Kong (all of them) and Jurassic Park.
1985 – Prizzi’s Honor, D.A.R.Y.L., and Secret Admirer were released.
Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 2
Rock the Kashbah
The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.
This week the terrorists won. The terrorist convinced Sony and several theater owners to pull the release of “The Interview” from our theaters this Christmas. It’s a disappointment. Then several indie theaters wanted to show “Team America: World Police” and Paramount pulled that so whatever. The Critics Choice Nominations were out. Josh and I poke fun of the award show and Sean doesn’t laugh.
“The Hobbit” is finally over so we never have to talk about that again…until they turn 30 years old. It won the weekend, but Josh and Sean disliked it. “Annie” came out and Sean thought it was a disaster. Then “Night at the Museum 3” came out and nobody noticed.
This week Sean asks us to Defend “Willow” but I asked Josh if it held up. It did for me, it did not for Josh. Then Josh went on to describe what was wrong with “Willow” and all he did was say awesome things about it.
1984 – Johnny Dangerously, Breakin 2 Electric Boogaloo
Knight of Cups
A Little Chaos
Honest Trailer – The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we talk “The Hobbit,” “A Madea Christmas” and “Nebraska.” We mostly talk about “The Hobbit” though. Let me rephrase that, Josh and Sean mostly talk about “The Hobbit” while I take a nap and cough into the microphone from time to time. Also “Nebraska” is really good, but you’re probably not going to see it.
Our Undisputed Classic was “African Queen.” Humphrey Bogart won a life time achievement award for this film. If any self respected actor gave the performance Mr. Bogart gave, they’d be run out of town. We’ve all seen it. I struggle to describe this movie when Josh swoops in to save the day.
In 1983 “Silkwood” and “Gorky Park” came out. If you’re going to go back and check out some movies from 1983, these are two great movies to start with. “Silkwood” is one of Meryl Streep’s more underestimated performances. It’s a heart breaking movie. “Gorky Park” has a terrible name, but it’s good too. On a side note Bon Jovi took a band named Gorky Park under their wing in the late 80’s but that didn’t last long.
Our Trailers are:
“Edge of Tomorrow”
“The Knights of Badassdom”
“The Fantastic Fear of Everything”
Welcome to The I Hate Critics The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. This week we talk about five movies, but let’s be honest “Gravity” is the one must see of 2013. It’s like “Avatar,” “Titanic,” “Jurassic Park.” You really need to see this movie in a theater and we loved it so much we talk about it for over 20 minutes. Which means we hardly talk about “Runner, Runner.”
We talk way too long about Christianity and Bodybuilding, but it’s good discussion so it was tough to cut any of it. Finally Metallica’s 3D movie “Through the Never” finally came to our little town and it was impressive in its own right. Let’s face though, if you don’t like Metallica you’re not going to see it (although you should).
The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is John Wayne’s “The Searchers.” Both Josh and Bob take a look at it this week. Both of them enjoy it, but the Clint Eastwood era is their preferred era while Sean thinks it’s the best western of all time, but what does he know?
In this week in 1983 “Never Say Never Again,” “Romantic Comedy” and “Never Cry Wolf.”
