Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. If you had told us that Zac Efron would be releasing a comedy opposite Jason Reitman’s new movie and that the Zac Efron comedy was good while the Jason Reitman movie was bad we may have killed you. Well that’s what happened. Jason Reitman finally struck out with “Labor Day” and Zac Efron was pretty decent in “That Awkward Moment.”
This episode of “I Hate Critics” was recorded before the terrible news about Phillip Seymour Hoffman, so we obviously did not address that horrible tragedy, but we will on next weeks episode.
Our undisputed classic is “Alphaville.” Josh caught “Alphaville” this week and really enjoyed it. It was a Sci-Fi twist on George Orwell’s “1984” and really ended up being the blueprint for films like “The Matrix” and “Dark City.”
Our trailers this week are:
Seth MacFarlanes “A Million Ways to Die in the West”
“The Zero Theorem”
