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”
Trailers this week:
The Night in Old Mexico
A Million Days to Die in the West
Atlas Shrugged 3
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. It’s March madness so we waste the first part of the show going through our Movie Madness Brackett. As expected, “The Big Lebowski,” “Fight Club” and “The Shawshank Redemption” are tearing up the competition. Our big reason for doing this bracket was because we didn’t want all the attention to be on the team hit “Divergent.” First there was “Harry Potter” which was loved by kids and adults alike, but then “Twilight” ruined the brains of the teenagers and 30 something mothers. Life got a little better with “The Hunger Games” but “Divergent” just feels lazy.
Thankfully there’s “Muppets Most Wanted” to make up for that. What a fun movie. Sean, Josh and I all made it out and each of us enjoyed it a ton, unfortunately my daughter and Josh’s son weren’t as big of fans as we were. It’s a movie that’s going to stand the test of time though and as kids get older they’re going to appreciate how intelligent this movie is and how much fun it is. Then there is the unintelligent “God is Not Dead.” That’s all I’m going to say about it.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Casablance.” I had never seen “Casablanca” but after watching it I realized I’ve seen it in just about every movie to come after it. I was expecting this grand epic like “Gone With the Wind” or “The Godfather” and instead what I got was probably the first legitimate blockbuster that still holds up today.
In 1984 “Police Academy” and “Racing with the Moon.” We all were not ashamed to admit we enjoyed “Police Academy” no matter how bad Roger Ebert said it was. “Racing with the Moon” is a movie nobody’s heard of that stars Nicolas Cage and Sean Penn and is surprisingly good.
Trailers this week:
The Amazing Spiderman 2
Earth to Echo
Welcome to The 1st Episode in 2014 of I Hate Critics. We’ve got a whole movie to talk about in “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones.” The movie should suck, but Sean found the movie much better than he thought it would be. We do what we can to stretch this episode out, so we took a list of the top 10 Sci Fi movies as chosen by scientists…then we crap all over how lazy this list is.
Our undisputed classic is Martin Scorsese’s “Taxi Driver.” We spend most of the podcast talking about this film. “Taxi Driver” is one of the best films of all time and is a must see for all film buffs.
1984 is one of the best years for movies and it got kicked off with a bang with the hit “Angel.” An honor’s student by day, a prostitute by night…sounds good right?
Our trailers this week are:
“The Raid 2: Berandal”
“The Amazing Spiderman 2”
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we mourn the loss of Paul Walker by asking our in house critic how he mourns actors he’s said horrible things about. We then jump into the Nelson Mandela bio pic and talk Wonder Woman before discussing how they move forward with “Fast 7.”
All three of us managed to get to the theater for “Out of the Furnace” and we all felt upbeat when the flick was over. It’s one of the most grim, bleak, depressing movies out there, but it’s compelling. I can’t describe how good it was like Sean can so turn the podcast on and listen. There are no spoilers in this segment, but when we talk “All is Lost” we do spoil it however it sounds like the ending is open to interpretation.
Our Undisputed Classic was “Duck Soup” from The Marx Brothers. Josh and Sean giggled like school girls talking about this one. I felt left out, so I just thought about how all the character’s in this movie had the same name as the characters in “The Devil’s Rejects,” which was something Roger Ebert loved.
In 1983 “Scarface” and “Sudden Impact” came out. We tear into “Scarface” as none of us like that movie. I think it’s long and boring, Josh doesn’t like that it’s hanging up on the walls of dumbasses and Sean doesn’t understand why so many people worship this movie, he dies in a pile of cocaine and wants to sleep with his sister. Now “Sudden Impact?” Great fun film.
