Welcome to the I Hate Critics Bonus Thanksgiving episode. This year we brought in four podcasts to help us out and talk about the movies they are most thankful for.
We got the help from:
Chris Jericho of “Talk is Jericho”
Jason Bryant from the “Short Time Wrestling Podcast”
Wayne Henderson from the “Voice Over Journey Podcast” and “The Packers Fan Podcast”
and our friends at the Sci Fi Movie Podcast
We talk about several movies including: Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, Planes Trains and Automobiles, His Girl Friday, The Crow, The Philadelphia Story, Tusk, Somewhere in Time, The Matrix, Crash, A History of Violence, Star Trek 6: The Undiscovered Country, No Country for Old Men, The Shawshank Redemption, Love Actually, Lord of the Rings, Saving Private Ryan, Alien, Aliens, Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan, Babe, Serendipity, A Cadaver Christmas.
This week we’ve got three new movies this week, No Escape, We Are Friends, Diary of a Teenage Girl. No Escape and We Are Friends are kind of let downs. No Escape is a movie where you just really never believe the main characters are in danger, but you’re supposed to…i.e. the main characters don’t die, you know they’re not gonna die but your supposed to be scared for them…it’s a let down. We Are Friends is ok, but Wes Bentley is so good in the movie that whenever he’s not on the screen you just want more Wes Bentley and since he’s a small character you spend most of the time wishing he were there which is not good for this movie.
EVERYBODY GO SEE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL NOW. It’s a master piece of a movie and that really everybody should see. That said it’s borderline NC-17 and really uncomfortable…but it’s powerful
Our Top Five this week is Top 5 martial arts films. We talk about Kill Bill, Yojimbo, The Matrix, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, The Karate Kid, Drunken Master, Enter the Dragon, The Last Dragon, House of Flying Daggers…and Road House?
Our Undisputed Classic is Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.

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.
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week Liam Neeson beats Jesus and they both beat the Lego Movie. Liam Neeson comes back with “Non-Stop” which is basically “Taken” on a plane. It’s dumb but fun. “Son of God” is a bunch of Hollywood types cashing in on Christians. They’ve released a terrible product knowing that Christians will buy it. “Son of God” is a repackaged version of the TV Miniseries “The Bible.” They’ve already seen it and they’re going out to see it again.
Oh and “Anchorman 2” was rereleased for a week and this time it was rated R.
You chose our Undisputed Classic this week and you chose David Fincher’s “Fight Club.” We broke rules number 1 and 2 and we talk about “Fight Club.”
In 1984 “Against All Odds,” “Repo Man” and “This is Spinal Tap” was released. Josh really hates “Against All Odds” and Bob and Sean like “This is Spinal Tap” and “Repo Man” is a movie I guess.
Trailers this week:
Art of the Steal
Josh and Bob watched a bunch of movies this week. “The Dallas Buyer’s Club,” “American Hustle,” “12 Years a Slave,” “Blue Jasmine,” “Nebraska” and more. At the end of the show we talk about these again.
