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

0

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.

Pan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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
