Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week the always watchable Jon Favreau brings us Jungle Book. It’s not the best movie is the world, but it’s a lot of fun and probably shouldn’t be compared to the best movie in the world. Barbershop 3 is a movie with a lot to say while remaining very funny. Criminal may be the worst movie of the year and Sing Street is a great movie in the vein of Once and Begin Again.
Top Five: Kevin Costner movies, Ice Cube movies, Jon Favreau movies.
