Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. In the news this week, Steven Spielberg to direct “Ready Player One.” “Fifty Shades Darker” gets a new director because author EL James was a pain in the ass. Hugh Jackman says he is done with “Wolverine” after the new movie. Idris Elba may play the next “Star Trek” villain. There’s a possible “Office” movie starring Ricky Gervais. Finally the website “Film Threat” funded by Chris Gore is doing a kick starter campaign to keep the site up and running.
The new movies this week include “Home,” “Get Hard,” and “It Follows.” Josh and I have kids and we got out of this movie, but Sean still had to go and it’s not bad. It’s not Pixar, but it’s got enough heart. Rent it for your kids when it comes out.
“Get Hard” is an awful movie with two really funny guys in it which makes it watchable, but hell I’d just watch Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell do the late night circuit. “It Follows” is the independent horror that got so much buzz that it got a wide release. It’s fine, we all appreciate it on different levels but it’s not a game changer by any means. It’s a meta movie and then some.
Our Undisputed Classic is the Paul Newman classic “Cool Hand Luke.” For the first time Sean hadn’t seen the classic but Josh and I had. Josh and I loved it Sean liked it…a little. Sean’s wrong though.
1985 – Desperately Seeking Susan, King David, The Slugger’s Wife, Police Academy 2, The Care Bear Movie
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we talk about Harrison Ford’s plane crash, Patton Oswalt’s idea for “Unbreakable 2 & 3,” and then a teacher has been arrested in Ohio for screening “ABC’s of Death” to young teenagers. So we ask the question, when can you show your kids rated R movies?
This weeks releases include “Chappie,” “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Unfinished Business” and “Merchants of Doubt.” These movies generated a lot of hate from our film critic. Thankfully Josh saved the day by liking “Chappie.” It was one of my favorite moments on the podcast. Sean’s hate was at an all time high and Josh liked the movie and embraced his love of the movie despite Sean’s hate and it was magical…ok I’m being corny.
“The Second Best Exotic Marigold” is gentle and pleasant. Gentle and pleasant often means lazy and pointless. “Unfinished Business” will probably go down as one of the worst movies of the year. It misses the point on so many levels. At worst “Unfinished Business” should have been another unoriginal Vince Vaughn comedy, but it was much worse than that. It’s a bummer.
Then there is a documentary about “Merchants of Doubt.” It’s about how these spin doctors that have convinced half of America that Global Warming is a hoax. It’s pretty infuriating, but the people that need to see this movie won’t.
This weeks Defend It film is “A.I. Artificial Intelligence.” Josh and Sean both agree this movie is great. I can’t dispute it but I can’t help but want to see what Kubrick would have done with it. Could you imagine if you watched every movie wondering what Kubrick’s version would be like? That’s not fair to the movie.
1985 – “Mask” and “The Hit”
Avengers: Age of Ultron
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.
It’s award season and the holiday season so a shit ton of movies came out. “The Interview” was the one we were all talking about and it sort of came out…on demand. “Unbroken” surprised the box office and may have injected some new life into itself. The “imitation Game” is a solid movie that would be better if it didn’t have so much hype behind it. “Into the Woods” flat out sucks and might be one of the worst movies of the year. “Big Eyes” is a solid effort by Tim Burton and “The Gambler” is a good movie that everybody has forgotten about.
This week Sean Defends his love for the Academy Award Winning “Chicago” which doesn’t really make sense but Josh and I don’t like musicals so we made him do it.
