Oscar Recap, Call Your Mom & Stay Weird

0

Welcome to the I Hate Critics Oscar recap show. It’s late, we’re all three exhausted and it shows. The Oscars are just two damn long. “Birdman” wins the night. I think the three of us differ on how good “Birdman” is, it’s my favorite of the movies nominated, I think it’s a little lower on Josh and Sean’s list. We all three agree that “Gone Girl” is the best movie of the year, but what are you going to do?

Some memorable moments in the show include JK Simmons telling us to call our moms. Patricia Arquette asking for equal women’s rights, it’s sad that in 2015 this is still an issue. Common delivered one of the most powerful speeches of the night and the writer of “The Imitation Game” deserved to win another award for his acceptance speech.

It’s weird, there’s not much to complain about. I was entertained enough, but it was just so long. I apologize if we’re not completely with it this episode…we’ll get them next time.

Captain America: The April’s Record

0

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Our March Movie Madness has made it to the final with “Almost Famous” squaring off against “Field of Dreams.” This week saw the film “Captain America: The Winter’s Soldier” destroyed the April box office record with over 100 million in its first weekend. Not only that but it’s probably the best “Avengers” related movie yet. It’s kind of like a “Bourne” movie.

We also talk about “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and rip on Wes Anderson fans. Sean by chance saw “Enemy” at our cheap theater and called it the best movie he saw this week…so I went and saw it and we’ll discuss again next week.

Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Eraserhead.” This isn’t really a movie but more or less several different genius images with no real story. But it clearly inspired a generation of music video directors.

In 1984 “Moscow on the Hudson” and “Up the Creek” came out. Only Sean saw those movies and for whatever reason he spent the whole segment talking about boobs.

Trailers this week:

Sex Tape
Palo Alto
A Haunted House 2

300 Picks on Mr. Peabody and Sherman

0

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week a sequel to Zack Snyder’s “300” finally hit theaters. Sure it’s been ripped off 300 times already, but this time we get to see why “300” is the original. We bring in a special guest to talk about “Mr. Peabody and Sherman” and Bob rented the “Old Boy” remake so you don’t have to.

Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Rushmore.” Since “The Grand Budapest Hotel” didn’t get released in our area we chat about this Wes Anderson film.

In 1984 Tom Hanks was introduced to us in “Splash” and you remember the name but forgot the movie “Children of the Corn” hit theaters.

Trailers this week:

Transformers 4
Annie
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
Mr. Jones
Deliver Us From Evil

Anchorman 2 & American Hustle = Good For Movie Podcast

0

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Podcast. This week we talk about “Anchorman 2,” “American Hustle,” “Saving Mr. Banks” and for whatever reason “Walking with Dinosaurs.” “Anchorman 2” is one of the great comedies of 2013. “American Hustle” is one of the great movies of 2013. Sean ranks it very high and I (Bob) have it topping my list. Amy Adams deserves an Oscar, but the stupid Critics Choice didn’t even nominate her. Oh well. See this movie.

“Saving Mr. Banks” is a great movie, but if you are bothered by historical accuracy is a movie you should steer clear of, otherwise enjoy Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson. “Walking with Dinosaurs” might be the worst movie of 2013…keep in mind Sean hasn’t seen “Canyons.”

Our Undisputed Classic was “Lawrence of Arabia.” With the passing of Peter O’Toole we thought it only be appropriate to talk about his best work and arguably one of the best acting performances of all time. Josh is very passionate about the film and Sean said there really is something to seeing it on a big screen that brings it to life. The verdict? It’s an undisputed classic.

In 1983 Joel Schumacher gave us “D.C. Cab” starring Adam Baldwin and Mr. T. Is there anything else I need to say?

Our Trailers are:

“The Polar Bear Movie”

“Welcome to Yesterday”

“22 Jump Street”

“Blended”

“Transcendence”

“The Grand Budapest Hotel”

“Expendables 3”
