Think Like a Karate Kid…Too

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Sadly we’re already at the halfway point of 2014, where did the time go? The three of us discuss our top movies so far of 2014. Common films in the top five included “Enemy,” “Under the Skin,” and “Chef.” As well as “Captain American” and “Cheap Thrills.” Other than that it hasn’t been the greatest year in movies.

Continuing with that trend is Clint Eastwood’s “Jersey Boys” which contains many magical moments but in between those magical moments is a lot of down time. At least we got the very entertaining “Think Like A Man Too,” a pretty bad movie with a great cast to make up for it.

On this weeks Does it Hold Up segment we discuss “The English Patient.” Sadly we all agree that it’s probably a good movie, we just don’t like watching it…does that even make sense?

This week in 1984 “The Karate Kid” was released. Along with “The Karate Kid” was “Rhinestone” and “The Pope of Greenwich Village.”

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week the two big movies out our “22 Jump Street” and “How to Train Your Dragon 2.” Surprisingly the juvenile comedy kicked the dragons ass at the box office. There wasn’t a whole lot going on this week so we decided to choose in draft form our movie team using Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill movies. The results are as follows

Sean’s Team:

This is the End
The Lego Movie
Magic Mike
The Sitter
Wolf of Wall Street

Josh’s Team:

Public Enemies
Money Ball
How to Train Your Dragon
War of the Worlds
Don Jon

Bob’s Team:
Superbad
The 40 Year Old Virgin
I Heart Huckabees
Knocked Up
Django Unchained

Our Undisputed Classic is the highly overrated “Touch of Evil.” Sean is the most forgiving but that’s only because he’s a film critic and he has to pretend to be (Sean doesn’t read these so I can say whatever I want)

Nothing of note came out in 1984

“Monuments Men” also came out this week with an amazing cast, George Clooney, Matt Damon, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett and Bill Murray. The cast was amazing the movie was just all right. “Vampire Academy” was a waste of time. Another stupid vampire movie trying to reach the teen girls and the 30 something moms…grow up people. Then there’s “The Lego Movie” and Sean loves it and Josh is disappointed.

Josh watched “Shame” to check out Steve McQueen’s work. Sean didn’t like, Josh was affected by it and then they go on to argue over how hot Michael Fassbender is. We also talk about “The Apartment” starring Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacClaine and Don Jon.

Our trailers this week are:

“Sabotage”
“Hector and the Search for Happiness”
“Divergent”
“Maladies”
“Odd Thomas”
