Next Week: The Gentleman & The Turning
Undisputed Classic: Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrells
1990: Cinema Paradiso
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
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.
This week is kind of a throw away week. “Horrible Bosses 2” came out and was funny but forgettable, but really wasn’t the first one too? I would say that’s high praise for a movie like “Horrible Bosses 2.” Then there is the “Penguins of Madagascar.” This movie exists and we’re not the audience for it, but it is something to listen to Sean insult children.
Sean saw the horror film “Babadook” and had some real high praise for that movie. He even said it may be the best female performance of the year by Essie Davis. Then Josh saw “Plastic Galaxy” and nobody including Josh cared.
This weeks defend it is going to be us defending our top 30 best pictures list over the last 30 years.
1984 – Nothing
Jurassic World – Chris Pratt
Cake – Jennifer Anniston
Unfinished Business – Vince Vaughn
The Pyramid – Alexander Aja
Pan – Hugh Jackman Rooney Mara

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”
