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.
EVERYBODY GO SEE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL NOW. It’s a master piece of a movie and that really everybody should see. That said it’s borderline NC-17 and really uncomfortable…but it’s powerful

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. There are four new movies in theaters this week. Of course there is the blockbuster “Paul Blart 2” which both Sean and Josh seemed to enjoy enough. Then there was what appeared to be a disappointment with “Unfriended” but actually had some style and was fairly impressive. James Franco and Jonah Hill got together for the disappointing “True Story.” However the best movie of the week was one nobody saw called “While We’re Young.”
Our fantasy movies (if you don’t know what I’m talking about go back and listen to the episode “Furious 7) got a more interesting in that Sean now has a movie on the board while “Furious 7” neared the $300 million mark.
Our Defend It film is the rated R mall cop movie “Observe and Report.” Josh has never been a big Seth Rogen fan but even he could appreciate the genius that is “Observe and Report.”
In 1985 was a waste of a segment because nothing of note came out.
Star Wars The Force Awakens
Batman vs Superman the Dawn of Justice
Love & Mercy
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.
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
Big Hero 6
The Wedding Ringer
Pauly Shore Stands Alone
Honest Trailer – The Fault in Our Stars
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”
