Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Our March Movie Madness has made it to the final four with “Rocky” squaring off against “Almost Famous” and “Fight Club” taking on “Field of Dreams.” This week saw the film “Noah” wash away the competition (so dumb) with a great box office week, but not a great movie…not a bad movie, but just big budget blockbuster, not something you’d expect from Darren Aronofsky, but definitely something you’d expect from Russell Crowe. At least it wasn’t “Sabotage,” because according to Sean and the rest of the free world…that movie sucked.
The best movie to come out in our neck of the woods is “Bad Words” according to Sean. First time director Jason Bateman knocked it out of the park, so that’s exciting. I spent four hours late Saturday night watching both volumes 1 and 2 of Lars Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac.” I can’t decide if it’s good or bad, but it’s intriguing. I feel like whether you liked it or hated it, Von Trier got his point across and that’s all you can really ask for.
This week there was also a great article over at www.rogerebert.com begging film critics to actually talk about filmmaking rather than just how they (the critic) was affected emotionally by the movie, which Sean blamed on Harry Knowles and 9-11.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Breathless.” This movie left Josh breathless (sorry I got nothing). Actually Sean left Josh “Breathless” after Sean talked about how much he loved this film.
In 1984 “Romancing the Stone” came out. Josh and Sean love this film while I am sick of it for the same reasons they love it…go figure.
Trailers this week:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Welcome to “The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.” This week we celebrate the life and career of Philip Seymour Hoffman. He was one of the greatest actors of all time. We celebrate the following films:
“Synecdoche, New York”
“Mission Impossible III”
“The Big Lebowski”
“The Talented Mr. Ripley”
“Along Came Polly”
“Charlie Wilson’s War”
“Punch Drunk Love”
“Monuments Men” also came out this week with an amazing cast, George Clooney, Matt Damon, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett and Bill Murray. The cast was amazing the movie was just all right. “Vampire Academy” was a waste of time. Another stupid vampire movie trying to reach the teen girls and the 30 something moms…grow up people. Then there’s “The Lego Movie” and Sean loves it and Josh is disappointed.
Josh watched “Shame” to check out Steve McQueen’s work. Sean didn’t like, Josh was affected by it and then they go on to argue over how hot Michael Fassbender is. We also talk about “The Apartment” starring Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacClaine and Don Jon.
Our trailers this week are:
“Hector and the Search for Happiness”
