#TBT “Catching Fire” is Just All Right With Me

0

Throw Back Thursday

Welcome to the I Hate Critics movie podcast, a movie podcast greater than your average movie podcast. This week we talk about “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Delivery Man” and “Inside Llewyn Davis.” The biggest movie of the weekend happens to be the worst movie of the weekend, but it’s not bad, it’s just a young adult story which means it has no balls and if you poke at it enough it falls apart. That said Jennifer Lawrence is on the verge of becoming a great actress and if for no other reason check it out to see her work.

CatchingCritics

“Delivery Man” is a solid Vince Vaughn film. I miss the days when he took more risks, but it could be worse, he could be Adam Sandler. Sean saw “Inside Llewyn Davis” and called it the perfect movie. Josh and i thought about ending him out of pure jealousy, but then we might never get to see it.

Our undisputed classic this week was “Oldboy.” Josh saw it twice. This weeks segment was my proudest moment in all of our podcasts. If you don’t leave that segment wanting…needing to see the original “Oldboy” then we’ve done something wrong. Josh missed a huge plot point in the movie that when he figured it out…which he does live on this podcast it all clicks and is a magical moment that we caught. You need to see this movie.

In 1983 “Terms of Endearment” began its reign as one of the most overrated films of all time while “Of Unknown Origin” took over Sean’s mind.

Our trailers this week our:
“Nymphomaniac”
“Sabotage”
“The Muppets Most Wanted”
“Best Night Ever”
“Need for Speed”
“Robocop”
“Raze”

Peter Berg #WetTShirtContest

0

Welcome to The I Hate Critics. It’s award season so lets talk about the comedy of the year “Hercules.” “Hercules” should have advertised itself as a comedy. This is a wanna bee “300” with no fun. “Lone Survivor” took a real life story and took it a little too “Ramboy.” Then Bob goes on to wonder what every movie would look like if Peter Berg directed it.

Speaking of disappointment, “August: Osage County.” It’s probably good on the stage, but not so much on the screen. Sean’s top two movies of the year are “Her” and “Inside Llewyn Davis.” Josh and I can’t argue with him. Both movies are award worthy. We had such a good time talking about these two films.

Our undisputed classic is “Amelie.” This is a romantic comedy that is also an art film. Everybody I know that has seen this loves this movie and it surprises me that they love this movie, but it really is that good.

This week in 1984 a soft-core porn named “Hot Dog…The Movie.” There was a wet t-shirt contest in it. Our contest this week is to come up with a movie that made it to the theater that includes a wet t shirt contest since “Real Cancun” not including “Piranha 3D.”

Our trailers this week are:

“G.B.F.”
“Kite”
“Kick Ass”
“Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden”
“Life Itself”
