Chris Rock Wins the #Oscars

0

Welcome to I Hate Critics Bonus Oscar Coverage podcast. This years Oscars leaves me strangely satisfied. The nominations weren’t diverse at all and it seemed like there was a lot wrong going in then Chris Rock stepped in and saved the day. Not only that but I think we all learned a little bit tonight. We learned more about modern racism, sexism. We learned about a culture that promotes sexual abuse towards women and we learned about climate change and none of us appear to be resisting any of that. More of us than normal seem to be accepting these as lessons we need to learn. Chris Rock’s performance tonight was my favorite ever Oscar host performance…well done Chris Rock.

As for the awards, Stallone lost, but so did Rocky. He doesn’t need to win to be the best. Aside from that just about every movie took home something so good for them. Mad Max won all the technical awards, The Revenant won a couple of the big awards and Spotlight won Best Picture. A24 took home three awards, we love that company and we’re super happy for them.

Witch is Brilliant

Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. We start this weeks show with our Oscar picks. There are also three new movies this week. Race and Risen are very safe movies which makes potentially decent movies pretty bland. Then there is The Witch which will end up among the best films of 2016 easily. A24 knocks it out of the park again.

Hunger Games Mockingly Part 2

0

This week we’ve got several new movies. It’s Hunger Games week. While not as many people went to go see this movie it’s actually far and away the best of the series. It’s timing is perfect and it’s really well done. Spotlight is an incredible movie, one of the years best. Everybody in the movie is award worthy. The Secret in their Eyes is a little disappointing, but only because it could’ve been amazing. The Night Before is hilarious.
