On this episode of I Hate Critics two new movies were released. Ted 2 and Max. Both are underwhelming but Max more so than Ted 2. Ted 2 is just disappointing because Ted was so great. Like typical Seth Macfarlane Ted 2 has a handful of really funny moments mixed with lots of down time. It’s every bodies biggest complaint with Macfarlane. He’s funny but he can’t put a story together. Just ask the guys from South Park. Josh did like it a little more than Sean did. Max on the other hand is just a waste of time and money. Marine dog gets sent up because his owner dies and is now living with his owners little brother as they try to save the day against something. I started to zone out a little.
In the news:
R.I.P. James Horner,
Rose Mcgowan fired by her agent for calling out the casting director of an Adam Sandler movie because they gave her notes to show up to the audition with lots of cleavage visible.
Tom Holland is the new Spiderman
Ben Affleck may direct the next Batman movie
Our Undisputed Classic is Harvey starring Jimmy Stewart. Jimmy Stewart proves once again that he’s one of the greatest actors of all time.
In 1985 Clint Eastwood turns the western genre on its head with Pale Rider by subtly introducing a supernatural element to the western. Then St. Elmos Fire and Red Sonia came out as well.
Our trailers this week are:
Hitman: Agent 47
Avengers Age of Ultron has finally been released. Josh and I watched it with a very critical eye. The action was unintelligible, the dialogue was not strong, the story line connecting all these movies together has major holes in it. Then Sean, our resident film critic managed to watch the movie for what it was, a summer blockbuster that is a lot of fun. You say tomato I say…this doesn’t work as well when you type it out.
Nathan Rabin has been canned by The Dissolve
Robert Downey Jr shits on indie film.
Mae Whitman passed over in “Independence Day 2”
The Baltimore Riots and “The Purge”
Our Does it Hold Up segment was inspired by Bruce Jenner. We took a look at Hedwig and the Angry Inch and The Crying Game. Hedwig and the Angry Inch is truly one of the great rock musicals of all time while the offensive marketing campaign really ruins The Crying Game experience.
1985 – Chuck Norris is Chuck Norris in Code of Silence. But it would have been awesome if he was in Gymkata. Anthony Edwards made Gotcha and Johnny Depp did Private Resort.
Fifty Shades Darker
The Irrational Man
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we only have one new movie so we had to improvise. “Furious 7” the latest installment of the Sean’s a hypocrite for liking these movies but not Adam Sandler movies franchise. And yes he loved “Furious 7.” That’s besides the point because we wrapped up our March Movie Madness Tournament.
Some asshole had gone and ruined the tournament by voting for every movie enough times to make them all dead locked, so we finished off the tournament without you because of one dick. “Inside Llewyn Davis” knocked out “Rocky IV” and “They Live” lived longer than “The Shining.” Unfortunately for our Cinderella story “Inside Llewyn Davis” was too strong and put an end to “They Live’s” run.
Which then brings us to our next competition. Fantasy Summer Blockbusters. There are two ways to play along at home. The first and easiest way is to latch on to one of the Critics teams. Whichever one of us wins we’ll pull the names of everybody that chose that critic out of a hat and the winner will receive an I Hate Critics mug along with a package of Rockin’ & Roastin’ coffee. There are only three mugs in the world, yours would be the fourth. The other way to play along at home is to have your own draft starting with “Furious 7” all the way through Aug 31st. On August 31st the contestant with the most money wins. If you start your own league share it with us and we’ll happily provide updates on the podcast.
Sean’s Team: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Minions, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Fantastic Four, Paul Blart 2, Spy, San Andreas, Straight Outta Compton & Magic Mike XXL
Josh’s Team: Inside Out, Ant Man, Ted 2, Terminator Genisys, Pixels, Paper Towns, Hot Pursuit, Aloha, Ricki & the Flash, Sinister 2
Bob’s Team: Jurassic World, Furious 7, Tomorrowland, Pitch Perfect 2, Poltergeist, Trainwreck, The Longest Ride, Insidious 3, Masterminds, Vacation
Our Undisputed Classic is the car chase flick “Vanishing Point.” All three of us would gladly watch “Vanishing Point” over the “Fast and the Furious” films. Quentin Tarantino recommended this movie to us and we fell for it hook line and sinker. He didn’t personally recommend it to us but we’ve heard him talk about it a lot.
Then we defended “They Live” because why not? John Carpenter made a masterpiece. It’s so much fun. Everything that is good about it is great and everything that is bad makes it so much better. Roddy Piper excels at what we can only assume was supposed to be Kurt Russell’s role. If Kurt Russell would have starred it’d have been good, but with Roddy Piper it’s a classic.
In 1985 “Alamo Bay” starring Ed Harris came out and it’s not a very good one.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. One of the worst movies in the history of movies was released in theaters this week and that is “Black or White.” This movie has great talent like Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer in it, looking like they’ve never acted a day in their lives. Director Mike Binder shit the bed on this one and made everyone involved looked foolish.
However one of the 5 or 10 best movies of the year “A Most Violent Year” also came out and saved the weekend. You’ve got the future of Hollywood in in this movie with Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain and David Oyelowo. Let’s not forget about Albert Brooks who is amazing as well. This movie deserved to be nominated for an Oscar.
Then there were two other forgettable movies that came out called “The Loft” and “Project Almanac.”
This weeks Undisputed Classic is Oscar winner “In the Heat of the Night.” We picked this movie because we thought it’d be a movie about race in 1967 since 1) this is the whitest Oscar season in a very long time 2) “Black or White” came out and we didn’t know it’d suck that bad. “In The Heat of the Night” won the Oscar but it’s star Sidney Poitier wasn’t nominated, instead supporting star Rod Steiger was nominated for the lead performance and I believe won. Hollywood is so stupid. This movie is OK, the tv show really sucked and affected my opinion.
1985 – “Heavenly Bodies” came out and it’s a dance competition musical or something like that, but most importantly there are boobs in it.
