This week we’ve got two new movies. Our first movie is the latest installment in the James Bond universe and that’s Spectre. Our resident film critic didn’t not like it, but neither did our resident Bond fan. In fact we spend most of the movie going through the history of James Bond and picking it apart and talking about what works, what worked and what’s wrong. We then move on to The Peanuts Movie which Sean and I both adored, but I couldn’t help troll it a little….just a little.
Top Five this week is Peanut Movie/specials and or James Bond films. We talk about about them all so get ready.
For our Undisputed Classic this week Josh assigned each of us a Bond movie to watch, so we took on Goldfinger, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and The World is Not Enough.
In 1985 we don’t really take on anything but That Was Then This is Now came out.
Our trailers this week are:
Alice Through the Looking Glass
London Has Fallen
Star Wars The Force Awakens – Japanese Trailer
Star Wars The Force Awakens Honest Trailers
This week we’ve got two new movies this week. He Named me Malala is a great documentary by David Guggenheim about the insanely brave Malala. Pan also came out but nobody seemed to notice. I’m not even sure the filmmakers realized they were making a movie. It is however Hugh Jackman’s birthday so Happy Birthday Hugh, here’s the biggest bomb of your career.
Rather than an Undisputed Classic we decided to challenge ourselves by checking out a Hugh Jackman film we hadn’t seen which included Prisoners, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Fountain.
In 1985 we take on Sliver Bullet & Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins
Our trailers this week are:
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. It’s March madness so we waste the first part of the show going through our Movie Madness Brackett. As expected, “The Big Lebowski,” “Fight Club” and “The Shawshank Redemption” are tearing up the competition. Our big reason for doing this bracket was because we didn’t want all the attention to be on the team hit “Divergent.” First there was “Harry Potter” which was loved by kids and adults alike, but then “Twilight” ruined the brains of the teenagers and 30 something mothers. Life got a little better with “The Hunger Games” but “Divergent” just feels lazy.
Thankfully there’s “Muppets Most Wanted” to make up for that. What a fun movie. Sean, Josh and I all made it out and each of us enjoyed it a ton, unfortunately my daughter and Josh’s son weren’t as big of fans as we were. It’s a movie that’s going to stand the test of time though and as kids get older they’re going to appreciate how intelligent this movie is and how much fun it is. Then there is the unintelligent “God is Not Dead.” That’s all I’m going to say about it.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Casablance.” I had never seen “Casablanca” but after watching it I realized I’ve seen it in just about every movie to come after it. I was expecting this grand epic like “Gone With the Wind” or “The Godfather” and instead what I got was probably the first legitimate blockbuster that still holds up today.
In 1984 “Police Academy” and “Racing with the Moon.” We all were not ashamed to admit we enjoyed “Police Academy” no matter how bad Roger Ebert said it was. “Racing with the Moon” is a movie nobody’s heard of that stars Nicolas Cage and Sean Penn and is surprisingly good.
Trailers this week:
The Amazing Spiderman 2
Earth to Echo
