Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week the always watchable Jon Favreau brings us Jungle Book. It’s not the best movie is the world, but it’s a lot of fun and probably shouldn’t be compared to the best movie in the world. Barbershop 3 is a movie with a lot to say while remaining very funny. Criminal may be the worst movie of the year and Sing Street is a great movie in the vein of Once and Begin Again.
Top Five: Kevin Costner movies, Ice Cube movies, Jon Favreau movies.
Undisputed Classic Bull Durham
1986 – Legend, Wise Guys
Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them
This week we’ve got three new movies this week, No Escape, We Are Friends, Diary of a Teenage Girl. No Escape and We Are Friends are kind of let downs. No Escape is a movie where you just really never believe the main characters are in danger, but you’re supposed to…i.e. the main characters don’t die, you know they’re not gonna die but your supposed to be scared for them…it’s a let down. We Are Friends is ok, but Wes Bentley is so good in the movie that whenever he’s not on the screen you just want more Wes Bentley and since he’s a small character you spend most of the time wishing he were there which is not good for this movie.
EVERYBODY GO SEE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL NOW. It’s a master piece of a movie and that really everybody should see. That said it’s borderline NC-17 and really uncomfortable…but it’s powerful

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Three new movies were released this Fourth of July weekend. Melissa McCarthy’s “Tammy” came out to a mixed reaction. Sean and I both enjoyed the film, however the trailers were selling us on a different movie then “Tammy” ended up being…oh well. “Deliver Us From Evil” turned out to be just another possession movie, but a fairly competent one. Finally “Earth to Echo” kind of missed with the whole found footage thing, but I’m sure kids will like it.
This weeks “Does it Hold Up” film is Paul Haggis’ “Crash.” This is my least favorite movie of all time. Both Sean and Josh initially praised this film. After rewatching the film they were both disappointed in themselves for initially liking the movie. They both did a good job of explaining why they were tricked. Seriously this movie is a giant piece of crap and it actually sucks more now than it did when I originally saw it.
Horrible Bosses 2
All is By My Side
A Most Wanted Man
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Seth Rogen’s new movie “The Neighbors” was released, Josh and Sean went to see it and both said it’s a great start to the summer comedy season. They both all ranked it among Seth Rogen’s finest films which is exciting. Also released this week is “The Legends of Oz” which is nothing more than a cash grab…oh well.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Chinatown.” “Chinatown” is truly one of the greatest films ever made, it’s incredible that both Josh and I had never seen it. Jack Nicholson is in top form.
In 1984 “The Natural,” “Fire Starter”
