Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation

0

We’ve got two new movies this week. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation and Vacation. Mission: Impossible cleaned up during the weekend box office bringing in $58 million. Both Sean and Josh loved Mission: Impossible, they claim it’s the best action movie of the year. There’s no way that’s true because Mad Max Fury Road came out this year but whatever. Vacation really upset Sean. I personally had no problem with it. It’s not as memorable as its predecessors, but to me it’s hard to say something is or is not funny. If it’s funny to somebody then it’s funny. You can’t define funny.

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”
“Brick Mansions”
“Drive Hard”

“Twelve Years a Slave” is 2013’s First Oscar Front Runner

Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. “12 Years a Slave” is this years first real Oscar contender and Sean predicts that Chiwetel Ejiofor is a sure win for Best Actor. I’m always hesitant when Hollywood takes on racism and based on Sean’s recommendation I’m excited that “12 Years a Slave” seems to have knocked it out of the park.

“The Best Man Holiday” a sequel to “The Best Man” came out this weekend as well. Like it’s predecessor “The Best Man Holiday” is a very watchable, fun, enjoyable movie with really good acting and really good directing. It’s hard to say much more than that, but check this out instead of the next Katherine Heigl dud.

“The Dallas Buyer’s Club” came out and while it was good, the acting was distracting. When an actor is campaigning for an Oscar sometimes that can be distracting. Only Sean saw it, but he couldn’t stop staring at Matthew McConaughey. Maybe it was just Sean, but it took him out of the movie.

The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “Badlands.” As a fan of messed up serial killer movies and not really digging on Terrence Malick’s abstract films I was curious how I would take “Badlands.” I love “Badlands.” It will go down as one of my favorite movies. It’s a serial killer movie told from a fairy tale perspective.

Sean sat down this week and watched “Yentl” beginning to end and he had the balls to say it was good, so there’s that.”Yentl” along with “Nate and Hayes” came out in 1983.

Our trailers this week are: “Divergent,” “Maleficent,” “Cuban Fury,” “Noah,” “Man of Steel: Honest Trailer,” “Tar.”
