Welcome to the I Hate Critics Podcast. We watched four new films this week. “No Good Deed” won the box office, so as of right now we are all tied in the Fantasy Movie Draft at 0. “The Drop” starring Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini was ok, it’d have been better if Ben Affleck directed it. “Dolphin Tale 2” exists. Then there was “About Alex,” my generations “The Big Chill.”
Our Undisputed Classic was Buster Keaton’s “The General.” While this movie treats the South as the “good guys” in the Civil War it’s insanely impressive what they pulled off back in the mid 20’s. This is like a “Road Runner” cartoon only with real people and real life stunts. For a silent picture it’s pretty watchable.
In 1984 three movies came out that I bet Josh doesn’t watch by the end of the year.
