Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. In the news this week, Steven Spielberg to direct “Ready Player One.” “Fifty Shades Darker” gets a new director because author EL James was a pain in the ass. Hugh Jackman says he is done with “Wolverine” after the new movie. Idris Elba may play the next “Star Trek” villain. There’s a possible “Office” movie starring Ricky Gervais. Finally the website “Film Threat” funded by Chris Gore is doing a kick starter campaign to keep the site up and running.
The new movies this week include “Home,” “Get Hard,” and “It Follows.” Josh and I have kids and we got out of this movie, but Sean still had to go and it’s not bad. It’s not Pixar, but it’s got enough heart. Rent it for your kids when it comes out.
“Get Hard” is an awful movie with two really funny guys in it which makes it watchable, but hell I’d just watch Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell do the late night circuit. “It Follows” is the independent horror that got so much buzz that it got a wide release. It’s fine, we all appreciate it on different levels but it’s not a game changer by any means. It’s a meta movie and then some.
Our Undisputed Classic is the Paul Newman classic “Cool Hand Luke.” For the first time Sean hadn’t seen the classic but Josh and I had. Josh and I loved it Sean liked it…a little. Sean’s wrong though.
1985 – Desperately Seeking Susan, King David, The Slugger’s Wife, Police Academy 2, The Care Bear Movie
Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. This episode we talk “Carrie,” “Fifth Estate” and “Escape Plan.” In short, “Carrie’s” fine, “Fifth Estate” is blah and “Escape Plan” is Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in a movie together.
This episode it was me (Bob Zerull), Film Critic Sean Patrick, Josh Adams from the Film Fan Perspective.
The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “The Bridge On the River Kwai.” Josh had to sit through this thing. During his viewing he noticed several shots from this film that Steven Spielberg has ripped off over the years…or was Spielberg paying homage? If it were anybody else we’d say ripped off…just saying.
In this week in 1983 we got “The Right Stuff,” “All the Right Moves,” “The Dead Zone” and “The Osterman Weekend.” Thirty years later “Gravity” is still number one and a new movie based on a Stephen King novel is out in “Carrie.”
