Masters of the Universe Needs to Be Remade

0

This episode is dedicated to the loving memory of my friend Jeff Kilgard. He was a great friend who passed away earlier this morning unexpectedly. He left behind his wife Shelby and seven year old son. Jeff was the one that saved all of our back catalog. He was a listener of the show, but he was a really great friend and I will miss him.

Spy, Insidious 3, Entourage

0

Not every week can a movie bring in $100,000,000 at the box office. With theaters still full of blockbusters such as Avengers, Mad Max, Pitch Perfect 2 and Furious 7 there’s not a lot of room for new movies. That didn’t stop the good folks behind Spy, Insidious 3 and Entourage from trying.

Both Sean and Josh claim that Spy is far and away the funniest movie so far this year. Sean claims that Insidious Chapter 3 is equally as strong as it’s predecessors and that Entourage is an embarrassing piece of crap. The filmmakers behind Entourage grossly over estimated their audience.

The I Hate Critics podcast has been asked to be a part of Lebowski Fest in Milwaukee Wisconsin the weekend of Aug 21 and 22nd. Please if you’re in the area we’d love to hang out and get to know some of you.

They are going to remake Big Trouble in Little China with The Rock. We’re hoping to do a Kickstarter campaign to convince Fox to not remake Big Trouble in Little China

We asked the audience in honor of Entourage being released this week, what their favorite movies about movies were. We talked Sunset Blvd, Mulholland Drive, The Player, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

“Captain Phillips” Kills “Machete”

Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. This Tom Hanks takes an impressive real life story and gives it a taste of Hollywood while most likely grabbing another Oscar nomination. While Mel Gibson got a taste of what his career had become in “Machete Kills.” I for one love the grind house style films that Robert Rodriguez, but it sounds that even if you’re like me, you’re probably not going to care for “Machete Kills.”

This episode it was me (Bob Zerull), Film Critic Sean Patrick, Josh Adams from the Film Fan Perspective and our special guest was Faith.

The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “Das Boot.” Classic is a strong word this World War 2 submarine movie. It’s very long, you find yourself rooting for Nazi’s and it’s unanimously agreed that this works best as a mini series.

In this week in 1983 we got Robert Altman’s “Streamers,” an underrated film that was ahead of its time.
