This weeks episode is a downer. Pixels disappoints, Southpaw & Paper Towns are to formulaic. Mr. Holmes is great but nobody has seen it. Adam Sandler is almost single handedly the only thing wrong with Pixels and that breaks my heart. I want to accuse Sean of being a dumb critics, but his audience didn’t even go and see Pixels so I can’t defend Sandler. Jake Gyllenhaal is amazing in Southpaw, but the movie is kind of dumb. It was written for Eminem and oddly enough would have been a better movie if Eminem was in the movie. It’s all Gyllenhaal’s fault. Paper Towns is fine. Again we’ve seen it before, it’s a formula. It’s forgettable which kind of makes it worse than a bad movie. At least its not Fault in Our Stars or something by Nicolas Sparks. Then there is Mr. Holmes starring Ian McKellan as Sherlock Holmes. Mr. Holmes is such a unique interesting movie that everyone should go see right now.
Our Undisputed Classic is Rebel Without A Cause. Sean explains why this movie has held up and is such a great classic. I had a hard time getting into it but I can’t argue against anything Sean says. He even does a pretty good job of explaining why I don’t think it holds up.
In 1985 European Vacation, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and Heavenly Kid
Our trailers this week are:
Queen of Elizabeth
On this episode of I Hate Critics we’ve got two new movies: Ant-Man came out this week opposite Trainwreck, Minions, Jurassic World, Inside Out. It still managed to bring in $60 million which people are saying is good bad, but really it’s pretty good. It’s not Guardians of the Galaxy, but who would really complain about a $60 million opening. The other movie to come out was the Amy Schumer/Judd Apatow vehicle Trainwreck. Ant-Man was fine, but Trainwreck is the best comedy of the year so far. If you’re a fan of Amy Schumer and or Judd Apatow then Trainwreck is a must see.
Our Undisputed Classic is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. We spend the whole segment bad mouthing women who like this film. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a highly racist film that we were unable to get into or understand why people like.
In 1985 The Coca Cola Kid starring Eric Roberts came out and we probably spent more time on this movie than any of the other movies.
Our trailers this week are:
The Fantastic Four
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast Bonus episode. We’ve got SIX new movies to talk about this week, but really only one matters and that’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Holy Shit was that fun. We also talked about “Wish I Was Here,” “Get On Up,” “Snowpiercer,” “A Most Wanted Man” all of which the majority of us found good to great. Then there was #Sharknado2.
This weeks Does It Hold Up is “The Dark Knight Rises.” This is the movie that started the podcast and once again I (Bob) was right.
We skipped 1984 because we had seven movies to talk about.
Into the Woods
The Longest Week
The Maze Runner
The Hobbit: The Battle of 5 Armies
Sin City 2 – Red Band
The Hunger Games: The Mocking Jay Part 1
Night at the Museum 3
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week we only get one new movie and it’s the prequel sequel of “Planet of The Apes” and “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.” Both Josh and Sean are fans of the “Apes” series about both Sean and Josh enjoyed this movie. We also talk about “Spring Breakers” and “Afflicted.”
This weeks “Undisputed Classic” was “Blue Velvet.” Josh picked it and wasn’t as fond of it as Sean and I were. It’s not the most fun movie to watch, but it is insanely artistic and well thought out. At the very least I feel like you have to respect it.
In 1984 “The Last Star Fighter” came out. For a movie that time seems to have forgotten, it plays a big role in both Josh and my life…for very different reasons.
Exodus: Gods and Kings
The Zero Theorem
Sharknado 2: The Second One
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”
