#TBT Did He Just Say Steven Spielberg is a Hack?

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.”
