This week we’ve got four new movies this week. The Martian, Sicario, The Walk and Hell and Back. The first three movies are fantastic. The Walk was released in IMAX only and it didn’t do very but it’s a fantastic film. We highly recommend checking it out. The Martian and Sicario also came out and they are two of the best films of the year so far. They’ll most likely be overlooked come award season which is unfortunate. Then there is Hell and Back which nobody knew about and Sean didn’t find funny.
Our Undisputed Classic is Solaris. Yes there are multiple Solaris films. We talk about the 1972 and the 2002 version and we had a really great conversation about these films and about Science Fiction in general.
In 1985 we take on Commando and Jagged Edge
Our trailers this week are:
Ip Man 3
This week we’ve got four new movies. Transporter Refueld came out and that is basically just an Audi commercial. A Walk in the Woods is essentially Grump Old Men 3. Dragon Blade wasn’t quite bad wasn’t quite good…I don’t really know what it is. It looks like it’s so bad it’s good, but that’s not the case it just kind of exists. Bloodsucking Bastards is a ton of fun and you can see it on demand right now….go do that.
Our Top Five this week is Robert Redford films which included All the Presidents Men, The Natural, Three Days of the Condor, Captain America The Winter’s Soldier, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting etc
Our Undisputed Classic ended up just being Netflix Challenge. Sean challenged us to pick a movie Netflix recommended to us. Those movies ended up being Hook, Skeleton Twins, and Comet.
In 1985 City Limits and Joshua Then and Now
Our trailers this week are:
The Night Before
The Danish Girl
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. One of the worst movies in the history of movies was released in theaters this week and that is “Black or White.” This movie has great talent like Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer in it, looking like they’ve never acted a day in their lives. Director Mike Binder shit the bed on this one and made everyone involved looked foolish.
However one of the 5 or 10 best movies of the year “A Most Violent Year” also came out and saved the weekend. You’ve got the future of Hollywood in in this movie with Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain and David Oyelowo. Let’s not forget about Albert Brooks who is amazing as well. This movie deserved to be nominated for an Oscar.
Then there were two other forgettable movies that came out called “The Loft” and “Project Almanac.”
This weeks Undisputed Classic is Oscar winner “In the Heat of the Night.” We picked this movie because we thought it’d be a movie about race in 1967 since 1) this is the whitest Oscar season in a very long time 2) “Black or White” came out and we didn’t know it’d suck that bad. “In The Heat of the Night” won the Oscar but it’s star Sidney Poitier wasn’t nominated, instead supporting star Rod Steiger was nominated for the lead performance and I believe won. Hollywood is so stupid. This movie is OK, the tv show really sucked and affected my opinion.
1985 – “Heavenly Bodies” came out and it’s a dance competition musical or something like that, but most importantly there are boobs in it.
The Fantastic Four
The Madame Bovery
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.
