We Hate Movies

Founded in New York City, the We Hate Movies podcast uses bad movies, ranging from the tasteless to the tedious, as a jumping-off point for long-form conversations that include personal anecdotes, detailed trivia, and extensive criticisms. Since 2010, the podcast has quickly become a cult sensation amongst the bad-movie podcast crowd, and has been praised in The AV Club, Splitsider, and numerous other online publications. Hosted by comedians Andrew Jupin, Stephen Sajdak, Eric Szyszka, and Chris Cabin, We Hate Movies brings their own unique twist to the time-honored tradition of ragging on movies most people forget about.

For nearly a decade, We Hate Movies has been ripping on the worst movies to hit the big screen, including white-guy-karate pictures, modern-day superhero epics, or misbegotten 90s thrillers. On their first full tour of 2019, hosts Andrew Jupin, Stephen Sajdak, Chris Cabin, and Eric Szyszka bring their antic and uproarious takes on bad movies to the stage once again. The boys will be on hand to break down everything from incomprehensible accents and cheap CGI to dated references and one liners that make you yearn for the sweet embrace of the grave. There might also be talk of Secundus and cold Burger King. Film to be announced.
