Watchmen (2009)

Podcast cover

Special thanks to two time Commissioner Andrew Mount for tasking us with the pleasure of watching Watchmen, a 2009 Zack Snyder adaptation of the classic comic book series by Alan Moore.  We both love the movie, and talk about our experiences with the comic and the movie, the metaphysical realities of being Doctor Manhattan, the philosophy of the Watchmen's world view, and of course, giant glowing blue dongs.

Again, thank you very much Andrew.

Avengers: Endgame (2019)

Podcast cover
Read more

Jim and I have seen the climax to a decade's worth of world building in the MCU, Avengers: Endgame, and would like to certify it 100% awesome. Sure, you might quibble with a few cameos you don't recognize, and the more you're capable of rolling with the "Rule of Cool" the more you'll appreciate the spectacle they're putting on screen. But it's hard to imagine any fan of superhero movies not respecting what an accomplishment this is; to get so many people across the globe to care about and invest in these characters through 20+ movies that they'll sit in the dark for 3+ hours laughing and crying with them. How does Marvel top this? Can't wait to find out.

Please enjoy our spoiler-free review of the movie as well as a discussion of upcoming films and trailers, but if you want to hear our full, spoiler-filled analysis you'll have to be a Club Bald Move member!

Thanks to Jefferson Betmarik for making us pull 1999's The Matrix off our shelves and talk about it.  This movie was directed by the Wachowski siblings, and stars Keanu Reeves, Lawerence Fishburne, and Carrie-Anne Moss among others.  Jim and I have watched this movie so much, and spent so much time talking about it over the years, so it's no surprise that we were able to easily fill 1:20 with our personal thoughts and observations.  What surprised is was how many new thoughts and ideas we had from our latest watch.  We had a lot of fun revisiting the movie, and I hope you get a kick out of listening.

Thanks again, Jefferson!

The Princess Bride (1987)

This was a long time coming.  Jim has avoided seeing this movie for going on 30 years.  Today, he has no where to run, no where to hide.  He's locked in a steel cage match with "The Princess Bride", directed by Rob Reiner and based on the novel of the same name by William Goldman.  Confronted by the beautiful faces of Cary Elwes and Robin Wright, the absurdist comedy of Miracle Max, how will he react to this crazy mashup of farce, swashbuckling, and heart?

Special thanks to Zan from Melbourne, Barry C from the UK, Allicyn Wilde, Robot-K, Brian S, John H, Stefan G, Mark S, Denise T, Lesley W, Jay R, Ryan L, S Duncan, Geoffry B, pmmonnat, and WeezerWes for banding together and storming the castle.

Special thanks to a bunch of Aron's gaming buddies, namely Hobbsam, CLUSTER_F, SheIsGeeky, TONYDETH, Jormagund, and Meatplow77 for coming together to commission perhaps the greatest superhero movie of all time, Batman: The Dark Knight.  Featuring a Heath Ledger performance that won him a posthumous Oscar, this film has a unique blend of superb writing and direction, dazzling action, well grounded performance, and just enough heart to make it a modern classic.  Jim and A.Ron talk about the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy in general, and the Batman himself before lavishing praise upon the film, and of course, poking around for the few problems the film has.

Thanks again to Hobbsam, CLUSTER_F, SheIsGeeky, TONYDETH, Jormagund, and Meatplow77 not only for throwing some cash our way, but on a personal note, for being great friends who've drug me through every Destiny raid to date.  Thanks!

Special thanks to the intrepid crew of Bald Move Commissioners who banded together to make this podcast happen; Keith Alejandro, Jen, Alex M, Matt DeRemer, Stephen, mydeardeadly, Andy G, Jefferson B, cocoa2mc, Gary Turco, Jasmyn P, Andrew K, Conner B, Martin K, and Geoffrey Bowser.  Possibly the deepest commissioned roster we've had so far.  And they had us review one of the greatest of the Coen Brothers productions, 2007's No Country for Old Men.

What can we say? This movie is as beautiful, dark, and epic a Western as you could ask for.  With an all star cast including Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones, Woody Harrelson, and Javier Bardem, amazing source material from Cormac McCarthy, and stunning Texas scenery lovingly captured on film, it's easy to just let the movie and it's themes of fate and mortality sneak up and wash over you.  Thanks a bunch for the commission, guys and gals, it was a pleasure.

The Shining (1980)

Jim and A.Ron check into the Overlook Hotel as we are compelled to podcast on the 1980 Stanley Kubrick psychological-horror masterpiece, "The Shining".  Starring Jack Nicholson and Shelly Duvall, it's an incredible combination of beautifully crafted shots, stunning and terrifying visuals and imagery, and Jack Nicholson's fully insane acting. There is so much to discuss; the film itself, our reactions, Stephen King's antagonism towards the film, the various theories and documentaries the film has spawned, subliminal messages and hidden meanings, and fine naked ladies with implausible afros.  All this and more is discussed, and we felt like we hardly scratched the surface.

Thanks to Jenny of BrBaFaFe fame, Ryan Lamb, Martin_ORU, PityPity Pyla, Coral182, and Moreadgbowser1064 for pooling their funds together on this commissioned podcast.  If you'd like to find out how you can commission your very own podcast, check out the Bald Move shop.  Jim also offers this Michel Ciment interview with Stanley Kubrick as a link you might find of interest.

Jim and I went to see the Joker tonight, and it was intense, challenging, but also beautiful and engrossing look at mental illness and the sicknesses at the heart of our society.  Director Todd Phillips gives us a plausible, believable, and terrifying Joker to inhabit a world that is set in a hazy late 70s period but the political landscape is very 21st century.  We can see multiple ways this movie could be considered "dangerous", but we feel the most dangerous thing about it could be people ignoring the many cautionary tales it packs into it's run-time.

We'll be back in two weeks to discuss what we imagine to be a bit lighter fare; Zombieland: Double Tap!

This edition is intended to be the definitive version. The interesting thing is, Jim and I have always been a bit “meh” on the classic Blade Runner experience.

There are problems with world building and pacing here and there, but everything tracks so much cleaner, and the third act which was always a standout is now a pure joy.

Jim and I had a helluva lot of fun seeing the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody tonight, starring Rami Malek. It's getting mixed reviews, but we're struggling to understand why. Malek does an incredible job embodying the greatest rock band front man of all time, the soundtrack is just literally all of the greatest Queen hits, so what's not to like? Unless the movie tells just truly egregious and hateful lies about Mr. Mercury, which we're not in a position to verify, we can't see much not to like.

Anaheim investigator Julissa Trapp is not like other detectives. She’s the only woman on the homicide squad, and a skilled chameleon: undercover cop in vice stings, crime-scene commander, patient confidante of killers. A master interrogator, she invokes her personal experience – and deepest griefs -- as a tool to elicit confessions. When a young woman’s body is found at a trash-sorting plant, Trapp learns the murder may be linked to the disappearance of three other women in nearby Santa Ana. Trapp embarks on a dark journey that brings her face to face with a man who takes “a little piece of her soul.” Listen now at Wondery.fml/baldmoviesDT

Ford v Ferrari (2019)

We saw the Ford v Ferrari tonight, and got exactly what we were bargaining for. A film about cars designed to go fast and the men who are driven to, uh, drive them. There's lots of cussin' and fussin' and punchin', and going real fast. All driving strategy is reduced to shifting a gear and hitting the gas at the dramatically appropriate moment, and there isn't a lot of depth and complexity. But man, the cars are beautiful, the driving action intense, and the sound design amazing. If you were looking forward to seeing this film like we were, then it's hard to imagine you'll be disappointed. And if you weren't? Well, see us back next week for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood!

Jim and went to see Dr. Sleep tonight, and left the theater wide awake. It's not The Shining, but it doesn't try to be. Instead, it does it's own thing, which in retrospect is appropriate for a movie about an adult Danny Torrance, who battles his father's demons with addiction to emerge a better man. The cast is amazing, led by the ever engaging Ewan McGreggor and relative newcomer Kyliegh Curran as the brightest Shine of a generation. Director Mike Flanagan (Gerald's Game) once again proves a deft hand adapting Stephen King. Don't go in expecting Kubrick, and we think you'll be pleased. See you next week for Ford v. Ferrari!

Jim and I went to the outer reaches of the solar system with Ad Astra, the paradoxically slow moving, absorbing, thoughtful, but action packed sci-fi film starring Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones. We spend the better part of an hour talking about what we thought the film was about, and the strange, ultra-realistic yet dreamy quality to a lot of the proceedings. I think we both admired the film more than loved it, but I at least wouldn't be surprised if further contemplation (and watches) revealed some hidden depths.

We went to see Chapter Two of Stephen King’s IT, and we were both kind of underwhelmed. We were both fans of the first installment, but unfortunately the great acting and interesting characterizations are undermined by hokey horror sequences and what feels like a lot of recycled material from Chapter One. We think it’s an okay film, not a very effective horror movie, and with the cast and material that’s pretty surprising. We’ll be back in a few weeks to take on Ad Astra (and Cecily and I will be sneaking in a review of the Downton Abbey movie), see you then!

Read more

We went to go see Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw tonight, and it's awesome. You either love the F&F franchise or you don't, and if you love it like we love it this movie is going to satisfy. All the hallmarks are there; insane vehicular action, Loony Tunes meets Three Stooges approaches to violence, suspension of disbelief stretching feats of driving and other forms of derring doo. Maybe it's a tad too long, maybe they lost track of what time of day it was in the third act, but it doesn't matter.  We hope they make a dozen more of these things. We'll be back next week to watch the ladies mobbin' through the streets of NYC in The Kitchen! See you then!

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

Podcast cover
Read more

We went and saw "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood", the latest movie written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie. It's not his best film, it's certainly not his "worst", but for us it's extremely watchable throughout it's nearly three hour run-time and when it finally goes off the rails in the last reel, hoo-boy. Brad and Leo are having a lot of fun, the film is as gorgeous as you'd expect, and Hollywood looks as magical as it ever has on screen.  We'll be back next week to check out Hobbes and Shaw, see you then!

The Lion King (2019)

Jim and A.Ron have seen the "live-action" remake of The Lion King, but why? Why was this film made? I mean, we know the rea$on$ The Mouse is jamming this joyless attempt at cinema down our throats, but really, why? A stellar vocal cast can't even come close to making it worth it. It's hard to think of a more pointless endeavor, and it's \all down hill after the cold open. Stay at home, save your money, and put on your best copy of the original on your biggest screen and crank up the sound. Enough with this pretender. Long live the original King! We'll be back next week to rinse this rancid wildebeast from our mouths with the taste of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood!

Jim and I had the pleasure of taking a European vacation with Spider-Man: Far From Home. Just when you wonder how Marvel will pick up the pieces and continue from Endgame, the drop a super fun Spider-Man sequel on us that manages to be just as delightful as the first with even more heart. Tom Holland was born to play Peter Parker, everyone is having a great time, including the audience. We honestly can't wait to see where Spidey goes next!

Toy Story 4 (2019)

Podcast cover
Read more

 Frankly, we were prepared to be mildly disappointed and to cluck our tongues at the Mouse and wag our fingers at all of his hubris as we sat down to watch Toy Story 4. Nobody asked for this sequel. It was foolish to get this franchise out of the vault after you delivered an absolutely perfect trilogy with the most beautiful ending you could ask for. But you know what? They did it. Toy Story 4 can look it's predecessors square in the eye as it has just as much humor, heart, and a wonderful, emotionally rewarding finale.  Not to mention it's the best looking Toy Story yet. This is a movie that was made for everyone, and it delivers the goods.

Men in Black: International (2019)

Podcast cover
Read more

Jim and I have seen the latest installment in the long running Men in Black franchise, Men in Black: International. And it's okay. It's fun and entertaining, largely because Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth are fun and entertaining people who have an easy chemistry. The plot is twisty, but not very smart, and the whole thing just struggles to find the big red "hyperspace" button that would get it into orbit where it belongs. But if all you're looking for is a bit of 90s nostalgia in a forgettable summer flick package, Men in Black: International will do.
