This week we’ve got three new movies. We kick things off with Hotel Transylvania. We’re three grown men so our opinion doesn’t really matter but at some point Sean indirectly calls our kids dumb. The Intern ends up being a pretty solid Nancy Meyers movie, possibly her best. Eli Roth lets us down with The Green Inferno. I wanted it to be good and theres a lot of potential here but the execution was just off.
Our Top Five this week is our favorite messed up movies which include A Serbian Film, Salo: 120 Days of Sodom, Saw, Requiem For a Dream, Irreversible, Oldboy, I Spit on Your Grave, A Clockwork Orange, and more
Our Undisputed Classic is Cannibal Holocaust. It’s a movie all three of us ended up liking. It’s shocking but it’s well made and truly is terrifying.
In 1985 we take on Maxie, Invasion USA and Code Named Emerald
Our trailers this week are:
The Big Short
This week we’ve got three new movies this week, American Ultra, Hitman: Agent 47 and Sinister 2. Nobody went and saw American Ultra, but I thought it looked really good and Sean had a lot of fun watching it. Hitman: Agent 47 was a lazy action movie and Sinister 2 was a lazy horror film. These two movies appear to be cash grabs and that’s just disappointing. The first Hitman movie wasn’t very good or successful so we’re not sure why they made a sequel, but Sinister was a solid horror film. It’s among one of the most profitable films of all time, so why not make a sequel? So they did.
Our Top Five this week is Top 5 horror sequels. We talk about Dawn of the Dead, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, Friday the 13th Part 2, Basket Case 2, It’s Alive 2, The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween 2, Amityville Horror 2, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows, Phantasm 2, Bride of Frankenstein, The Decent 2, Prometheus, Silence of the Lambs, Aliens.
Our Undisputed Classic is Carnival of Souls. It’s a movie that holds up largely due to the atmosphere it creates. The story itself doesn’t hold up but that’s because of movies like The Sixth Sense. There are so many twists in movies today that you can’t look back at a movie from 1962 and not figure out the twist within two minutes of this movie starting. That doesn’t make the movie bad, because it’s a fantastic movie.
In 1985 Teen Wolf, Better Off Dead, Gojira, Warning Signs, The Protector
Our trailers this week are:
The Final Girl
Welcome to the I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. This week Sean and Josh see “Maleficent” and Sean and I see “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” The verdict is Jolie good, MacFarlane bad (Sean still thought he was funny). I’m not sure when, but at some point in the show I claim I can kick Denzel Washington’s ass…not sure how that even came up.
The Undisputed Classic is back and this week it’s arguably the best western of all time “Once Upon A Time in the West.” All three of love this movie.
In 1984 “Once Upon a Time in America” and “Star Trek III” came out.
This is Where I Leave You
Kill the Messenger
The Green Inferno
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Seth Rogen’s new movie “The Neighbors” was released, Josh and Sean went to see it and both said it’s a great start to the summer comedy season. They both all ranked it among Seth Rogen’s finest films which is exciting. Also released this week is “The Legends of Oz” which is nothing more than a cash grab…oh well.
Our Undisputed Classic this week is “Chinatown.” “Chinatown” is truly one of the greatest films ever made, it’s incredible that both Josh and I had never seen it. Jack Nicholson is in top form.
In 1984 “The Natural,” “Fire Starter”
Trailers this week:
The Night in Old Mexico
A Million Days to Die in the West
Atlas Shrugged 3
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
