Best 80’s Horror Films & Tomorrowland

“Tomorrowland” came out this week and while successful wasn’t quite the box office juggernaut I was hoping for. The movie itself has a lot of promise but just falls short. Older kids to teenagers may enjoy the movie more so than adults, but it’s an incomplete movie that’s easy to pull a part. From a Madding Crowd nearly puts the podcast to sleep.

The remake of “The Poltergeist” came out this week as well and is one of the worst remakes thus far. They more or less just took the name and put it on a low rank modern PG-13 horror film. They tried to hard to be different from the original while not being original if that makes sense. It was more or less a money grab all around.

We asked our audience their top five 80’s Horror films of all time. “The Thing,” “The Shining,” “The Poltergiest,” “Evil Dead 1 & 2,” and “Nightmare on Elm Street” led the way while “They Live,” “Cannibal Holocaust,” “The Gate,” “Cujo” and “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” were mentioned as well.

Our Undisputed Classic was “The Poltergeist.” All three of us really enjoyed the movie. It’s definitely a classic. We debate the PG rating and whether Tobe Hooper gets enough credit for this classic.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Another throw away week for you good listeners. This week “Jupiter Ascending” came out and disappointed just like we thought it would. The “SpongeBob” movie took the top spot and then I Hate Critics Alum Jeff Bridges made a movie that nobody saw.

This week we’ve got a double defend it. Josh really likes “Cloud Atlas” and Sean really likes “Speed Racer.” Two films by the Washowskis that not many people either remember or like.

1985 – “Witness” starring Harrison Ford was released giving him his first and only Oscar nom. Then Kelly Preston made every man happy with her film “Mischief.” Then two other films “Lust in the Dust” and “Heaven Help Us” came out.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Divides our Podcast

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. We’ve had our first fight. It was over “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” Sean liked the movie a lot, Josh thought it was the best Spiderman movie period and I was kind of disappointed. The only thing all of us could agree on was that the ending was pretty bad ass. Then Sean and I saw “Walk of Shame.” Sean disliked this movie so much that it made him angry which made me like it that much more.

Our Undisputed Classic this week is “The Conversation.” As Sean puts it, “The Conversation” was made by Francis Ford Coppola back when he still made good movies.

Welcome to The 1st Episode in 2014 of I Hate Critics. We’ve got a whole movie to talk about in “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones.” The movie should suck, but Sean found the movie much better than he thought it would be. We do what we can to stretch this episode out, so we took a list of the top 10 Sci Fi movies as chosen by scientists…then we crap all over how lazy this list is.

Our undisputed classic is Martin Scorsese’s “Taxi Driver.” We spend most of the podcast talking about this film. “Taxi Driver” is one of the best films of all time and is a must see for all film buffs.

1984 is one of the best years for movies and it got kicked off with a bang with the hit “Angel.” An honor’s student by day, a prostitute by night…sounds good right?

Our trailers this week are:

“Tom’s Restaurant”
“The Raid 2: Berandal”
“Kung Fury”
“Draft Day”
“The Amazing Spiderman 2”
“Veronica Mars”
