Minions & The Godfather Part II

0

On this episode of I Hate Critics we’ve got three new movies: Minions cleaned up this weekend bringing in $120 million. It’s a movie that has been marketed well. Kids love the Minions, but it’s mostly forgettable. They’ve tricked our kids into watching garbage…good for them I guess. The Gallows is as big of a hit as any other movie this weekend. It was made for $100,000 and made $10,000,000. The acting is pretty bad as is the story but more power too them. I’m happy for their success. Self/Less is the movie where Ben Kingsley gets to become Ryan Reynolds and more or less make an action flick that is kind of boring. So it was a pretty weak weekend. Sorry about that.

Minions

Our Undisputed Classic is The Godfather Part II. Minions is a prequel about bad guys and so is The Godfather Part II so why not? The Godfather Part II is one of the best movies of all time. It’s a movie I’ve taken for granted. All three of us watched it again last week and if you haven’t seen this movie you really should. It’s brilliant,

In 1985 Silverado and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome were released.

Our trailers this week are:

Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice
Star Wars: The Force Awakens Featurette
Deadpool Leaked Trailer

Equal Pay for Women

Women are under paid in Hollywood

This week only one new movie came out and it was “Hot Pursuit” starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. It’s not a great movie but that mixed with a series of articles lead us to the discussion of equal pay for women in Hollywood. We try to explain why they’re not paid equally but ultimately come back to the fact that they should be. It’s not just Hollywood, it’s all over the world, but why not start in Hollywood at least.

HotPursuit

Our Undisputed Classic was actually a Cult Classic Guantlet that Sean laid down before Josh and I. We were tasked to check out the Netflix Cult Classic section and each check out a movie for the first time. Sean loved “Goon,” I appreciated and “Reanimator” and Josh loathed “Wet Hot American Summer” despite the fact that both Sean and I love the flick.

1985 – Nothing of note came out in 1985

The Longest Ride & Human Centipede 3

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we have two new movies to talk about. There’s another Nicolas Sparks movie, which is basically his greatest hits. I was expecting Sean to be meaner to it. Instead he was meaner to “Woman in Gold.”

Ryan Reynolds is completely miscast in his role in “Woman in Gold.” I love that Ryan Reynolds is always trying to take roles outside the box, but when you do that it doesn’t always work. Not to mention that there is a lot of fat on this movie and would clearly work better as a documentary.

Don’t forget to pick which fantasy team to throw your support behind. Currently I’m in the lead with over $200,000,000 earned to Sean and Josn’s $0.

Our Undisputed Classic is the sappy “An Affair to Remember.” Josh was able to put himself in his parents or grand parents mind set and enjoy the film while I resisted that possibility and found myself bored. That said if I described the movie to you you’d think it’s pretty good.

In 1985 “Ladyhawke,” “Cat’s Eye,” “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” and “Fraternity Vacation.” Now I love teen sex comedies more than most but “Fraternity Vacation” is just disgusting to me. The women in the movies don’t even have characters. They just show their boobs and then disappear. That doesn’t make the other movies I like ok, but this one is just too misogynist for me. It’s amazing Tim Robbins went on to have a career after this.

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we talk about Harrison Ford’s plane crash, Patton Oswalt’s idea for “Unbreakable 2 & 3,” and then a teacher has been arrested in Ohio for screening “ABC’s of Death” to young teenagers. So we ask the question, when can you show your kids rated R movies?

This weeks releases include “Chappie,” “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Unfinished Business” and “Merchants of Doubt.” These movies generated a lot of hate from our film critic. Thankfully Josh saved the day by liking “Chappie.” It was one of my favorite moments on the podcast. Sean’s hate was at an all time high and Josh liked the movie and embraced his love of the movie despite Sean’s hate and it was magical…ok I’m being corny.

Chappie

“The Second Best Exotic Marigold” is gentle and pleasant. Gentle and pleasant often means lazy and pointless. “Unfinished Business” will probably go down as one of the worst movies of the year. It misses the point on so many levels. At worst “Unfinished Business” should have been another unoriginal Vince Vaughn comedy, but it was much worse than that. It’s a bummer.

Then there is a documentary about “Merchants of Doubt.” It’s about how these spin doctors that have convinced half of America that Global Warming is a hoax. It’s pretty infuriating, but the people that need to see this movie won’t.

This weeks Defend It film is “A.I. Artificial Intelligence.” Josh and Sean both agree this movie is great. I can’t dispute it but I can’t help but want to see what Kubrick would have done with it. Could you imagine if you watched every movie wondering what Kubrick’s version would be like? That’s not fair to the movie.

1985 – “Mask” and “The Hit”

The Big Lebowski 2: Inherent Vice

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,”

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.

images-5

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.

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week Aaron Paul tries to cash in on his “Breaking Bad” success by ripping off “Fast and the Furious” and taking all the fun out of it. In an attempt to not spend a dime Warner Bros released “Veronica Mars” in AMC theaters only and on demand. Despite the lack of interest Warner Bros has in it, the movie is pretty good…as good as the television show.

Tyler Perry’s career seems to take another step closer to the end, but lucky for him he’s loaded. With “Single Mom’s Club” he takes on the hot button issue of single moms. All they need is a man right? We took in two documentaries this week. Sean saw “The Secret Lives of Jean Seberg” which was the heart-breaking story of how the US government ruined this woman’s life. She was an actor from Iowa, became an activist for the Black Panthers and was ultimately destroyed by the FBI. Then Bob and Josh watched “As the Palaces Burn.” The film was about the rock band Lamb of God who were just filming a simple documentary to go along with their newest album when the lead single was arrested for murder in Croatia.

Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Tokyo Story.” Sean had ripped into Josh and I for not trying very hard, so Josh tried real hard and watched possibly one of the greatest films of all time

In 1984 nothing of substance came out so we talked about this unbelievable article about the making of the “Street Fighter” movie starring Jean Claude Van Damme. It was a fascinating article, check it out here. http://www.polygon.com/features/2014/3/10/5451014/street-fighter-the-movie-what-went-wrong

Trailers this week:

Devil’s Knot

I Hate Critics Ep. 28 – The Conjuring and a Double Shot of Mary Louise Parker & Ryan Reynolds

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast, a movie podcast. You know what I love more than Mary Louise Parker? Is it Ryan Reynolds? No, it’s Mary Louise Parker twice in the same week. I loved her in Weeds in everything else I’ve seen her in. Unfortunately for her she wasn’t in Despicable Me 2 or The Conjuring or this weekend would have been a little more memorable

Sean doesn’t really like ghost stories so its hard for him to let his guard down for The Conjuring and subsequently doesn’t like it, but it seems like the paying audience does. 30 years ago Sylvester Stallone remade Rocky as a sequel to Saturday Night Fever and called it Staying Alive. Bob sees more movies than can be mentioned oh by the way the next Superman movies is going to be a Superman Batman movie.
