The Critics Are Wrong, Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice is Good

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. On this 194th episode of the podcast we talk about Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice for the second time. We briefly talk about My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, but then we move onto our third annual March Movie Madness tournament. This year we took sixteen movies, some of which were suggested by the audience and between the three of us decided which movies moved on to the next round. The only requirement was that we had to pick movies we’d never talked about on the podcast before…or at least movies we don’t remember talking about.

The movies were:

Citizen Kane vs Paths of Glory
Swingers vs Gross Pointe Blank
Good Will Hunting vs Punch Drunk Love
LA Confidential vs The Verdict
Fargo vs O’ Brother Where Art Thou
Glengarry Glen Ross vs Hard Candy
Waking Live vs Monsieur Lazhar
The Silence of the Lambs vs Phantasm

Let us know where we messed up.

Hidden Netflix Gems

Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we had five new movies. The Oscar nominated Room was rereleased wide this week, Kung Fu Panda 3 exceeds low expectations and The Finest Hours is the real deal…except non of you saw it.  Jane Got a Gun isn’t a bad movie and why do the let the Wayan Brothers keep making these terrible parody movies?

Our Top Five this week is Netflix gems. We talk about Blue Ruin, We Need to Talk about Kevin, Queen of Earth, In the Loop, Fat Kid Rules the World, The Dirties, Comet, Bernie, Short Term 12 and many more.

Instead of our Undisputed Classic we decided to each watch a movie Netflix recommended to us. Sean and I watched The Overnight and Josh saw Adult World.

In 1986 Down and Out in Beverly Hills and The Best of Times came out.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. An unexpected blockbuster came out this week in “American Sniper.”

While “American Sniper” tore it up at the box office, “The Wedding Ringer,” and “Paddington” were serviceable. Michael Mann’s “Blackhat” was a dud.

The Academy Award nominations were announced. Josh and Sean are very upset.

Since Michael Mann’s “Blackhat” came out this week Josh decided he wanted to defend Michael Mann’s “Miami Vice.”

1985 – “Blood Simple”

The Big Lebowski 2: Inherent Vice

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week “Taken 3” came out. At some point I mention that I’m pretty sure I could take Liam Neeson and that’s my biggest problem with the “Taken” movies. But what I’m excited to talk about is “Selma” and “Inherent Vice.” Two of the best movies of the year got wide releases this week. I also finally saw “Boyhood.”

InherentVice

The “Golden Globes” were this week, but we recorded before the show, so you’ll get our take next week.

Our Undisputed Classic is “Annie Hall.” My biggest problem with Woody Allen movies prior to seeing them is that I don’t by Woody Allen being with these beautiful women, but once you watch these movies you never question it for a second. “Annie Hall” has been remade so many times since it’s come out that it’s impossible to appreciate what it was when it first came out. But it’s a great movie and very easy to watch.

1985 – “Avenging Angel,” “Tuff Turf,”

Please Go See “Gone Girl”

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week quite possibly the best movie of the year came out, “Gone Girl.” This movie has jumped David Fincher to the best working director in my opinion. I think Josh shares that point of view as well. “Gone Girl” is so good that I want you to see so we can talk about it.

Also “Annabelle” came out. Only Sean saw it and he hates ghost stories, so he hated “Annabelle.” Then there was “Left Behind” and it wasn’t even fun bad. It was just a mess…sorry about that.

It’s October so we’re going to knock out a couple of horror films and we’re gonna start with 1922’s “Nosferatu.” All three of us loved it and agreed that technology has ruined horror films.

In 1984 “Stranger than Paradise,” “Teacher,” ‘The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of Yik Yak”
