Rank #1: No Country for Old Men (2007)

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

Rank #2: 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!

Rank #3: The Dark Knight (2008)

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!

Rank #4: Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

Podcast cover
Read more
This is hands down the most epic comic book film ever made, and it is full to bursting with Marvel Studios hallmarks; funny interactions within the heroes, inventive and imaginative fight scenes, jaw-dropping, awesome world and universe building, and genuine character beats.  The final act contains some effective gut punches that Jim and I are both more than a little skeptical of, but in the moment really work well, and can only really be judged after we see what comes next.

Rank #5: Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

Rank #6: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

Podcast cover

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!

Rank #8: The Shining (1980)

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

Rank #9: Saving Private Ryan (1998)

Podcast cover
Read more
Mr. Justin “Hatorian” K. won a Bald Move fantasy football league, and this was his reward; the selection of the modern classic war movie, "Saving Private Ryan".  Directed by Steven Spielberg, and starring every man in Hollywood (Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Vin Diesel, Bryan Cranston, NATHAN FILLION, Paul Giamatti, among others), it's a pitiless look into the hell that is war.  It is also moving, heroic, complex tale of brotherhood, bravery, cowardice, and loss.  It's a powerful film that you really must see before partaking of the podcast, but if you've already stormed the beaches of Normandy with Capt. Miller and company, please enjoy the podcast.

Eric Cunanan commissioned us to watch the classic 1992 drama, Glengarry Glen Ross, directed by James Foley and based on the stage play by David Mamet.  If megawatt star power (Al Pacino, Jack Lemon, Ed Harris, Kevin Spacey, Alec Baldwin, Alan Arkin among others), crisp, lyrical, profane dialog, and meditations on the death of the American Dream sound like something you're into, you should give this movie a shot if you haven't already.

Rank #12: Batman Begins (2005)

Podcast cover

Special thanks to Ethan and Allison for commissioning Batman Begins.  This is a fantastic comic book movie that also happens to be a fantastic film in it’s own right.  We love the fusion of gritty realism with the strong emotional core and exploration of Bruce Wayne and his struggle to walk the narrow path between justice and vengeance.  Excellent casting, excellent performances, and while the third act perhaps leaves something to be desired in terms of spectacle, the movie holds up like a champ.

Rank #13: Blood Simple (1984)

Podcast cover
Read more
Sean Ray commissioned one of his favorite movies, the Coen Brothers' 1984 directorial debut, Blood Simple.  Starring Coen favorite Frances McDormand, it's an interesting look into the prehistorical fossil Coen record.  So many shots and themes established in this first film go on to make up the DNA of their later works.  You'll see Fargo, Miller's Crossing, No Country for Old Men, and even a few dashes of Raising Arizona and The Big Lebowski in this film.  Having said that, there is a whole helluva lot of 1980's film making and first time directing on display as well.

Rank #14: Natural Born Killers (1994)

Podcast cover

Jason decided to tag his wife Aime back for the movies (Transformers, Toxic Avenger) she'd commissioned for him over Christmas, by having us chat about her personal favorite movie, Oliver Stone's 1994 film, Natural Born Killers.  We found this movie to be wonderfully cast (Woody Harrelson, Juliette Lewis, Robert Downey, Jr., Tommy Lee Jones, Tom Sizemore, among others) and fully insane in it's direction, visuals, editing, and message, and thus spent about half our time talking about the film itself, and the other half pondering the human condition.  Jason, Aime, hope you two crazy love birds enjoy this commission, and if either of you start talking about being the god of your world, back out of the room slowly.  Make no sudden movements.

Special thanks to Hatorian, who by right of conquest in the Bald Move Fantasy Football leagues has won a commissioned podcast. He has chosen wisely, selecting The Shawshank Redemption. This is a nearly perfect piece of filmmaking, with a confidence in pacing and direction from Frank Darabont matched by the nuanced work of the film's two leads, Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman. We had a lot of fun watching and discussing this one Hatorian. Hopefully, it won't be the longest podcast of your life...

Rank #16: Snowden (2016)

Podcast cover

This week's First Run Bald Movie is Snowden, an Oliver Stone movie about famous/infamous NSA whistleblower/traitor/hero Edward Snowden.  We don't think this is the movie that will change anyone's minds about the matter, but we do think the topic of privacy, if not Snowden himself, is vital for discussion, and the film is a food springboard for just that. But, does any of this even matter, will any of it make a difference? Enjoy our spoiler free review on us, or join Club Bald Move for a more in depth, wide ranging, and somber discussion of freedom, liberty, and privacy.

Jim and A.Ron saw Ridley Scott's "The Martian" last night, starring Matt Damon, and have a lot to say about it.  Note, the first part of the podcast is spoiler free, but then when we say we're about to spoil things, that's your cue to get out while the getting is good.  Along the way, we talk about the trailers we saw for The Revenant, The Big Short, Joy, and Concussion.

Support Bald Move:  Amazon  |  Club Bald Move

If you are still hungry for more Martian goodness, might I recommend reading Andy Weir's original book (The Martian) the film is based on?  Then, I'd proceed to reading Robert Zubrin's A Case For Mars, upon which most of the science of the book and film are based upon.  And if that's not enough, check out the Red/Green/Blue Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson.

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!

Jim and A.Ron have seen Captain America: Civil War, and they really, really liked what they saw.  It was fun, weighty, maybe a bit long with the usual seeming plot holes (which comic fans can probably fill), but nothing that comes close to threatening to stop the runaway hype train that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  We give you a fairly detailed non-spoiler review, before considering the many highly entertaining trailers that ran up front, and then finally, getting around to our no holds barred spoiler section.  You'll have to be a Club member to get the spoiler take, and read on to find out how you can sign up!
