RIP Spock – Live Long and Prosper

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week not much came out. Will Smith made a con movie called Focus. It’s fine, but like most cons, the con is sloppy and it’s not necessarily entertaining enough to take your focus off of the con like “Oceans 11.” Then there was a horror film called “Lazarus Effect” that Josh hated so much he called it potentially the worst movie he’s ever seen.

Spock

Our beloved/hated film critic Sean Patrick had a near death experience this week. He had a massive asthma attack that put him in the hospital for six days. At one point he actually lost the ability to breath and had to have machines breath for him for several hours. He’s back and he’s doing better so hopefully he stays that way.

We lost Leonard Nimoy famous as Spock from “Star Trek.” RIP Spock, “Live long in prosper.”

The Academy Award winning film “Still Alice” also got released in theaters. Julianne Moore won best actress. Sean thinks it was a great performance, but had three or four other performances he preferred. Sean compared it to a Lifetime movie with great acting.

Our Undisputed Classic is “The Sting.” Stars Robert Redford and Paul Newman make “The Sting” highly entertaining. Josh loved it the most, Sean tried to pick it a part and Bob enjoyed it.

1985 – Several movies came out. The best two movies are Woody Allen’s “Purple Rose of Cairo,” and John Cusak in “The Sure Thing.”

A Year In Review: Gone Girl’s Still the Best

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week there is only one new movie so we take a look back and celebrate the great movies of 2014.

We each list our top 10 movies of 2014. Among the movies mentioned “Gone Girl,” “Inherent Vice,” “Enemy,” “Under The Skin,” “A Most Violent Year,” “Chef,” “Foxcatcher,” “American Sniper,” “Birdman,” “Selma,” “Boyhood” and several more.

The new movie is Woman in Black 2, but it’s not very good and we don’t get into it until very late in the podcast.

Our Undisputed Classic is Jules and Jim. It seems like a really cool movie. It really affected Sean more than Josh but both of them seemed to enjoy it. It seems to have influenced Quentin Tarantino.

Please Go See “Gone Girl”

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”
