Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast – Special Oscar Edition. The Oscars just ended and we just finished recording our recap. Gravity wins all the technical awards, “Dallas Buyer’s Club” wins all the acting awards and “12 Years a Slave” wins Best Picture.
Why do we watch the Oscars? How do you define the best? My favorite movie was “American Hustle,” but is it better than “12 Years a Slave?” How do you answer that? Overall I was happy with the winners, but I would have been happy if the night went in a completely different direction most likely.
We spend a lot of time talking about “12 Years a Slave” and it really affected all three of us. Slavery was the American Holocaust and we never refer to it that way. Sean points out that there are pictures of slave owners on our money…still. Hitler’s not on any money in Germany…think about that.
There were great moments on Sunday night. Lupita Nyong’o’s acceptance speech was amazing. Matthew McConaughey’s was a lot of fun. Jared Leto was great. Ellen was funny, but the show was too long. Too many pointless montages, too many pointless musical numbers. The big losers of the night were John Travolta and Bette Midler. Let’s not forget about Kim Novak’s Face.
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”
