Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we had four new movies. The Oscar nominated Danish Girl, the forgettable The Boy and The Fifth Wave and Dirty Grandpa which should have been really funny and obscene but instead it was just obscene and unfunny…but it gave us an excuse to make it a Robert DeNiro week.
Our Top Five this week is favorite Robert DeNiro movies. We talk Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Deer Hunter, Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, Goodfellas, Casino and many more.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is Mean Streets, the movie that started it all for Martin Scorsese and Robert DeNiro.
In 1986 My Chauffeur and The Image Maker came out.
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising
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.
Our Undisputed Classic is National Lampoon’s Vacation
In 1985 Fright Night, Weird Science, Sesame Street Presents Follow that Bird
Our trailers this week are:
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Wait what’s this? Two episodes in one day? Yes, It’s our bonus Thanksgiving episode. This year we reached out to three of my favorite podcasts to help us out.
Pod on Pod (www.podonpod.com) – This podcast reviews others podcasts. There are hundreds of thousands of podcasts out there and these guys help pick out the good ones for you. I found out about them when they reviewed the Ivy Envy podcast and have since subscribed to their show.
Handicap This (www.handicapthis.com) – Mike and Tim’s podcast “The G.I.M.P. Show” has quickly become one of my favorites. Corey Fineran told me to check it out. I had no idea what it was and I just found myself falling in love with the show it’s both informative and entertaining.
The Awesome 80’s Podcast (www.theawesome80s.net) – This podcast celebrates the 80’s. Josh, Sean and I grew up in the 80’s as did Michael and Lawrence. Their show is a lot of fun. Each episode use to be about a stand alone movie, but 200 plus episodes in they’ve expanded to interviews and beyond. It’s a fun show be sure to check it out.
The movies we’re thankful for:
Pod on Pod: “Mallrats,” “My Fair Lady” Honorable Mentions: “The Godfather” & “The Outlaw Josey Wales”
Josh: “The Road,” “High Fidelity”
Handicap This: “Music Within”
Bob: “Fed Up,” “My Cousin Vinny”
The Awesome 80’s Podcast – Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, John Candy and aging celebrities on social media that have nothing better to do than talk with them.
