Good Grief James Bond

This week we’ve got two new movies. Our first movie is the latest installment in the James Bond universe and that’s Spectre. Our resident film critic didn’t not like it, but neither did our resident Bond fan. In fact we spend most of the movie going through the history of James Bond and picking it apart and talking about what works, what worked and what’s wrong. We then move on to The Peanuts Movie which Sean and I both adored, but I couldn’t help troll it a little….just a little.

This week we’ve got three new movies this week, No Escape, We Are Friends, Diary of a Teenage Girl. No Escape and We Are Friends are kind of let downs. No Escape is a movie where you just really never believe the main characters are in danger, but you’re supposed to…i.e. the main characters don’t die, you know they’re not gonna die but your supposed to be scared for them…it’s a let down. We Are Friends is ok, but Wes Bentley is so good in the movie that whenever he’s not on the screen you just want more Wes Bentley and since he’s a small character you spend most of the time wishing he were there which is not good for this movie.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast. We watched two movies this week, Old Man Washington’s “The Equalizer,” and the family friendly “Box Trolls. “The Equalizer” over performed because it made more money than it’s worth and “The Box Trolls” under performed in that it was worth way more than it made.

Watch-The-Equalizer-Online-Free

This week Josh defends “Man on Fire” another Old Man Washington film. He loves the movies potential, Sean and I hate it because of it’s potential to be good.

In 1984 three some what small movies came out: “Heartbreakers,” Irreconcilable Differences,” “The Wild Life” which was written by Cameron Crowe
