Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. One of the worst movies in the history of movies was released in theaters this week and that is “Black or White.” This movie has great talent like Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer in it, looking like they’ve never acted a day in their lives. Director Mike Binder shit the bed on this one and made everyone involved looked foolish.
However one of the 5 or 10 best movies of the year “A Most Violent Year” also came out and saved the weekend. You’ve got the future of Hollywood in in this movie with Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain and David Oyelowo. Let’s not forget about Albert Brooks who is amazing as well. This movie deserved to be nominated for an Oscar.
Then there were two other forgettable movies that came out called “The Loft” and “Project Almanac.”
This weeks Undisputed Classic is Oscar winner “In the Heat of the Night.” We picked this movie because we thought it’d be a movie about race in 1967 since 1) this is the whitest Oscar season in a very long time 2) “Black or White” came out and we didn’t know it’d suck that bad. “In The Heat of the Night” won the Oscar but it’s star Sidney Poitier wasn’t nominated, instead supporting star Rod Steiger was nominated for the lead performance and I believe won. Hollywood is so stupid. This movie is OK, the tv show really sucked and affected my opinion.
1985 – “Heavenly Bodies” came out and it’s a dance competition musical or something like that, but most importantly there are boobs in it.
