Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast Bonus episode. Rest in Peace to Robin Williams. It really is quite amazing the impact Robin Williams had on the world. There are few people in this world that had that affect on everybody.
“Expendables 3” came out this week and was a dud. While most critics agree that it is a bad movie, it still sucks that it leaked out online several weeks before the release causing the movie to fail miserably. It’s disappionting. Also out this week was “The Giver” which also bombed. Sean was ok with the movie while Josh hated it. “Let’s Be Cops” was the biggest new release of the week and “What If” was probably the best new release of the week.
Our “Undisputed Classic” is “Singing in the Rain.” I wasn’t all excited about checking this movie out, but I was pleasantly surprised by how watchable this movie it. I was expecting cheese and an out of date movie, but it was very interesting.
In 1984 Clint Eastwood’s “Tight Rope.” Also released was “The Woman in Red” & “Dreamscape.”

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week Sean Josh and I are joined by Michael Carlson host of the The Awesome 80’s Podcast www.theawesome80s.net. Michael joined us to talk about the 30th Anniversary of both “Ghostbusters” and “Gremlins.” He also went out and saw the new Tom Cruise Flick “Edge of Tomorrow.” The big movie this week was “The Fault in Our Stars” or as we affectionately refer to it as the girl movie.
Our discussion of Does This Hold Up? started with “American Beauty” and ended with “South Park.” Sean doesn’t like it, I love it, Josh is somewhere in the middle.

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.
