Hail, The Coen Brothers!

0

Welcome to this weeks episode of the I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we had three new movies. There was The Choice which I think is based on a Nicolas Sparks book but I could be mistaken…I wasn’t paying attention. Then there was Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. Finally The Coen Brothers are back with another gem Hail, Caesar!

Out of the Hugh Jackman Cannon

This week we’ve got two new movies this week. He Named me Malala is a great documentary by David Guggenheim about the insanely brave Malala. Pan also came out but nobody seemed to notice. I’m not even sure the filmmakers realized they were making a movie. It is however Hugh Jackman’s birthday so Happy Birthday Hugh, here’s the biggest bomb of your career.

Rather than an Undisputed Classic we decided to challenge ourselves by checking out a Hugh Jackman film we hadn’t seen which included Prisoners, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Fountain.

In 1985 we take on Sliver Bullet & Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

Our trailers this week are:

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Hail Ceasar

Spy, Insidious 3, Entourage

Not every week can a movie bring in $100,000,000 at the box office. With theaters still full of blockbusters such as Avengers, Mad Max, Pitch Perfect 2 and Furious 7 there’s not a lot of room for new movies. That didn’t stop the good folks behind Spy, Insidious 3 and Entourage from trying.

Both Sean and Josh claim that Spy is far and away the funniest movie so far this year. Sean claims that Insidious Chapter 3 is equally as strong as it’s predecessors and that Entourage is an embarrassing piece of crap. The filmmakers behind Entourage grossly over estimated their audience.

The I Hate Critics podcast has been asked to be a part of Lebowski Fest in Milwaukee Wisconsin the weekend of Aug 21 and 22nd. Please if you’re in the area we’d love to hang out and get to know some of you.

They are going to remake Big Trouble in Little China with The Rock. We’re hoping to do a Kickstarter campaign to convince Fox to not remake Big Trouble in Little China

We asked the audience in honor of Entourage being released this week, what their favorite movies about movies were. We talked Sunset Blvd, Mulholland Drive, The Player, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

1985 – The Goonies

Trailers:

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation

Furious 7, Vanishing Point & They Live

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.

Furious7

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.

American Sniper

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. An unexpected blockbuster came out this week in “American Sniper.”

While “American Sniper” tore it up at the box office, “The Wedding Ringer,” and “Paddington” were serviceable. Michael Mann’s “Blackhat” was a dud.

The Academy Award nominations were announced. Josh and Sean are very upset.

Since Michael Mann’s “Blackhat” came out this week Josh decided he wanted to defend Michael Mann’s “Miami Vice.”

1985 – “Blood Simple”
