Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we had five new movies. The Oscar nominated Room was rereleased wide this week, Kung Fu Panda 3 exceeds low expectations and The Finest Hours is the real deal…except non of you saw it.  Jane Got a Gun isn’t a bad movie and why do the let the Wayan Brothers keep making these terrible parody movies?


Our Top Five this week is Netflix gems. We talk about Blue Ruin, We Need to Talk about Kevin, Queen of Earth, In the Loop, Fat Kid Rules the World, The Dirties, Comet, Bernie, Short Term 12 and many more.

The Battered Bastards of Baseball – Interview


All three of us love baseball. When I heard about the film “The Battered Bastards of Baseball” I knew I had to see it. I knew Kurt Russell was involved and that’s about all I knew. Being a fan of baseball and a fan of Kurt Russell I had to check this movie out. I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I love baseball and lately it feels like we figured out the game of baseball. It’s been conquered by saber-metrics. While I’ve become fascinated by the statistical side of the game I had forgotten why I fell in love with baseball in the first place. It’s stories like this. There is something magical about baseball. To this day things happen in a baseball game that nobody has ever seen before. This movie tells a magical story about low level professional baseball. This story is interesting, entertaining and more than anything else captures the essence of baseball better than most baseball movies.
