Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.
This week we get “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” Sean claims this movie contains casual racism while Josh is just truly upset. Ridley Scott is Josh’s guy, “Blade Runner,” “Alien,” are two of his favorite movies and lets not forget about “Thelma and Louise,” “Black Hawk Down,” or even “American Gangster” and “Gladiator.” Ridley misses a lot and “Exodus” is one of those misses.
On a brighter note Chris Rock wrote, directed and starred in “Top Five” which is great. We’re all big Chris Rock fans, his movies aren’t always great, but it’s never for a lack of effort. “Top Five” is the best Chris Rock movie. Normally it’s the acting that holds a Chris Rock movie down, but bringing Rosario Dawson on board mixed with several A, B and C list cameos the acting is at worst not a distraction, but I’d argue that it’s top notch.
Then Al Pacino returns to form
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “The Ten Commandments.” This 3 hour plus snooze fest is good, but it’s kind of boring and desperately needs a reboot….by somebody like Ridley Scott…
1984 – Starman, Dune
Hot Tub Time Machine 2
Mad Max: Fury Road

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast. We watched four new films this week. “No Good Deed” won the box office, so as of right now we are all tied in the Fantasy Movie Draft at 0. “The Drop” starring Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini was ok, it’d have been better if Ben Affleck directed it. “Dolphin Tale 2” exists. Then there was “About Alex,” my generations “The Big Chill.”
Our Undisputed Classic was Buster Keaton’s “The General.” While this movie treats the South as the “good guys” in the Civil War it’s insanely impressive what they pulled off back in the mid 20’s. This is like a “Road Runner” cartoon only with real people and real life stunts. For a silent picture it’s pretty watchable.
In 1984 three movies came out that I bet Josh doesn’t watch by the end of the year.
