We’ve got two new movies this week. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation and Vacation. Mission: Impossible cleaned up during the weekend box office bringing in $58 million. Both Sean and Josh loved Mission: Impossible, they claim it’s the best action movie of the year. There’s no way that’s true because Mad Max Fury Road came out this year but whatever. Vacation really upset Sean. I personally had no problem with it. It’s not as memorable as its predecessors, but to me it’s hard to say something is or is not funny. If it’s funny to somebody then it’s funny. You can’t define funny.

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.
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.

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we only have one new movie so we had to improvise. “Furious 7” the latest installment of the Sean’s a hypocrite for liking these movies but not Adam Sandler movies franchise. And yes he loved “Furious 7.” That’s besides the point because we wrapped up our March Movie Madness Tournament.
Some asshole had gone and ruined the tournament by voting for every movie enough times to make them all dead locked, so we finished off the tournament without you because of one dick. “Inside Llewyn Davis” knocked out “Rocky IV” and “They Live” lived longer than “The Shining.” Unfortunately for our Cinderella story “Inside Llewyn Davis” was too strong and put an end to “They Live’s” run.
Which then brings us to our next competition. Fantasy Summer Blockbusters. There are two ways to play along at home. The first and easiest way is to latch on to one of the Critics teams. Whichever one of us wins we’ll pull the names of everybody that chose that critic out of a hat and the winner will receive an I Hate Critics mug along with a package of Rockin’ & Roastin’ coffee. There are only three mugs in the world, yours would be the fourth. The other way to play along at home is to have your own draft starting with “Furious 7” all the way through Aug 31st. On August 31st the contestant with the most money wins. If you start your own league share it with us and we’ll happily provide updates on the podcast.
Sean’s Team: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Minions, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Fantastic Four, Paul Blart 2, Spy, San Andreas, Straight Outta Compton & Magic Mike XXL
Josh’s Team: Inside Out, Ant Man, Ted 2, Terminator Genisys, Pixels, Paper Towns, Hot Pursuit, Aloha, Ricki & the Flash, Sinister 2
Bob’s Team: Jurassic World, Furious 7, Tomorrowland, Pitch Perfect 2, Poltergeist, Trainwreck, The Longest Ride, Insidious 3, Masterminds, Vacation
Our Undisputed Classic is the car chase flick “Vanishing Point.” All three of us would gladly watch “Vanishing Point” over the “Fast and the Furious” films. Quentin Tarantino recommended this movie to us and we fell for it hook line and sinker. He didn’t personally recommend it to us but we’ve heard him talk about it a lot.
Then we defended “They Live” because why not? John Carpenter made a masterpiece. It’s so much fun. Everything that is good about it is great and everything that is bad makes it so much better. Roddy Piper excels at what we can only assume was supposed to be Kurt Russell’s role. If Kurt Russell would have starred it’d have been good, but with Roddy Piper it’s a classic.
In 1985 “Alamo Bay” starring Ed Harris came out and it’s not a very good one.

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast, a movie podcast. How can two grown men talk about Smurfs 2 for an hour? Sean and I had wondered how long we could go and we went about ten minutes…which is a long time considering. We also talked about Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington in 2 Guns (a much better flick).
30 Years and one week ago National Lampoons Vacation came out and 30 years ago we got Risky Business, two of the more memorable films to appear in our 30 year segment. I (Bob) gave GI Joe the sleep test and ultimately just turned it off. I did the same with Francis Ford Coppola’s Twixt, but I plan on giving that another shot down the line.
This weeks trailers.
