Welcome to the I Hate Critics movie podcast, a movie podcast greater than your average movie podcast. This week we talk about “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Delivery Man” and “Inside Llewyn Davis.” The biggest movie of the weekend happens to be the worst movie of the weekend, but it’s not bad, it’s just a young adult story which means it has no balls and if you poke at it enough it falls apart. That said Jennifer Lawrence is on the verge of becoming a great actress and if for no other reason check it out to see her work.
“Delivery Man” is a solid Vince Vaughn film. I miss the days when he took more risks, but it could be worse, he could be Adam Sandler. Sean saw “Inside Llewyn Davis” and called it the perfect movie. Josh and i thought about ending him out of pure jealousy, but then we might never get to see it.
Our undisputed classic this week was “Oldboy.” Josh saw it twice. This weeks segment was my proudest moment in all of our podcasts. If you don’t leave that segment wanting…needing to see the original “Oldboy” then we’ve done something wrong. Josh missed a huge plot point in the movie that when he figured it out…which he does live on this podcast it all clicks and is a magical moment that we caught. You need to see this movie.
In 1983 “Terms of Endearment” began its reign as one of the most overrated films of all time while “Of Unknown Origin” took over Sean’s mind.
Our trailers this week our:
“The Muppets Most Wanted”
“Best Night Ever”
“Need for Speed”
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast. We watched four new films this week. We start with Kevin Smith’s new film “Tusk.” We’re spilt 2 loving it to 1 not loving it. It’s one of our better conversations. Then there is “The Maze Runner,” “A Walk Among the Tombstones, & “This is Where I Leave You.”
Sticking with the Kevin Smith theme our “Does it Hold Up” film is “Chasing Amy.” It’s one of the best movies I have ever seen yet doesn’t get the credit it deserves.
In 1984 the Academy Award winning film “Amadeus” came out.
Men Women and Children
A Most Violent Year
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast Bonus episode. We’ve got three new movies in “Lucy,” “Hercules” and “And So It Goes.” All of which are sort of dumb, but “And So It Goes” takes the cake. But Sean checks out “Begin Again” and claims that Josh undersold it last week. Best movie of the year? Maybe.
This weeks Undisputed Classic “Melancholia.” Lars Van Trier is an interesting man and director. You don’t have to like his films, but for the most part you’re going find his films fascinating.
In 1984 Prince came out with the musical masterpiece “Purple Rain.” He’s almost as electrifying as the Rock according to Sean. Yes music/artistic royalty was compared to pro wrestling royalty. Sean doesn’t read these. Then two other movies came out but who gives a shit.
Tweet our friends at @awesome80spod and let them know you want them to talk about #PurpleRain from @h8critics.
Fifty Shades of Grey
The Death of Superman Lives
Hot Tub Time Machine 2
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Our March Movie Madness is finally over and “Almost Famous” is your winner. Thanks to all of you who voted. This week we talk “Draft Day,” “Oculus” and “Under the Skin.” Sean said “Draft Day” was enjoyable. As a group we ranked the top five Kevin Costner films. Both Sean and Josh caught “Oculus” from WWE films. I saw that it was from WWE films and figured out that it’d be a waste of time… I was right.
Josh, Sean and I drove 3 hours to Evanston, IL just to see Scarlett Johansson get naked…I mean her amazing film “Under the Skin.” I’m completely joking about the only going to see her naked. This movie looked amazing and we really wanted to see it and it was amazing. It’ll stick with me for a long time.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Memento.” Josh wonders if Christopher Nolan is the best working director out there. I kind of feel like Nolan and David Fincher are interchangeable. I’m kind of partial to David O. Russell right now. That said “Memento” is one amazing film.
In 1984 “Iceman” and “Friday the 13th IV” came out. Josh has a soft spot for “Iceman,” but nobody really cares about “Friday the 13th IV”
