Equal Pay for Women

Captain America 3: Cival War casted.
Women are under paid in Hollywood

This week only one new movie came out and it was “Hot Pursuit” starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. It’s not a great movie but that mixed with a series of articles lead us to the discussion of equal pay for women in Hollywood. We try to explain why they’re not paid equally but ultimately come back to the fact that they should be. It’s not just Hollywood, it’s all over the world, but why not start in Hollywood at least.

HotPursuit

Our Undisputed Classic was actually a Cult Classic Guantlet that Sean laid down before Josh and I. We were tasked to check out the Netflix Cult Classic section and each check out a movie for the first time. Sean loved “Goon,” I appreciated and “Reanimator” and Josh loathed “Wet Hot American Summer” despite the fact that both Sean and I love the flick.

Unbroken, Into the Woods, Imitation Game & The Boz

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast.

It’s award season and the holiday season so a shit ton of movies came out. “The Interview” was the one we were all talking about and it sort of came out…on demand. “Unbroken” surprised the box office and may have injected some new life into itself. The “imitation Game” is a solid movie that would be better if it didn’t have so much hype behind it. “Into the Woods” flat out sucks and might be one of the worst movies of the year. “Big Eyes” is a solid effort by Tim Burton and “The Gambler” is a good movie that everybody has forgotten about.

This week Sean Defends his love for the Academy Award Winning “Chicago” which doesn’t really make sense but Josh and I don’t like musicals so we made him do it.

“Thor 2” The Coincidental World

0

Welcome to “I Hate Critics” The World’s Greatest Movie Podcast. The next installment of “The Avengers” franchise was released in “Thor: The Dark World.” While the movie is fine if you turn your brain off, it is full of holes that will make it hard for some to get past. Ultimately the movie was just a set up for the next “Avengers” film rather than a movie on its own. “About Time” is another film that came out this weekend. It’s a romantic comedy that is watchable for both genders.

The ‘Undisputed Classic’ is “Blade Runner.” Josh is a Ridley Scott nut and “Blade Runner” is probably his finest work. It’s certainly his biggest cult classic. Does that make it an “Undisputed Classic?” I think so, but who am I?

In movie news the original director for “Jane’s Got a Gun” is being sued. “The Wolverine” is getting a direct sequel, “Gravity” is the number one film in the history of October and David Cronenberg called Stanley Kubrick a hack…sort of.

Check out our trailers this week: “These Final Hours,” “Lone Survivor,” “Winter’s Tale,” “A Case of You,” “The Raid 2,” “Lucky McKee’s All Cheerleaders Die,” and “The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug.”
