Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week the studio behind the “X Men” movies tries to tie the cluster fuck that is the “X Men” series together so they can go forward. Josh, well he loved it. Sean, not so much. Me, I went and saw Jon Favreau’s “Chef” instead. Speaking of Jon Favreau’s “Chef,” unbelievable. Both Sean and I caught “Chef” and it won the weekend in our hearts. Then Adam Sandler released a movie with Drew Barrymore and it was exactly what you thought it’d be.
We introduced a new segment to rotate in and out with our Undisputed Classic called Does it Hold Up. This week we covered the Academy Award Winning “Gladiator.” The consensus was that it holds up better on the big screen than it does on DVD.
In 1984 “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” came out.

Happy Memorial Day! This week Sean, Josh and I are delivering two episodes. This one is a bonus episode where we talk about nothing but “X Men,” the entire movie series. We go into spoilers, so if you don’t want to know what happens in any of the “X Men” movies, specifically “Days of Future Past” then I recommend holding off on this episode for a while.
