I only have 240 characters to work with,so I can't be nuanced,but these guys are idiots,and possibly psychotic in the unfun way.They obviously don't really watch the films and provide "insights" that often make no sense.Try We Hate Movies.

Description

Bald Move Prestige is where the best of the best come to shine. In the Prestige podcast, we talk about serious dramas, excellence in filmmaking, and everything in between; on television or on the big screen.

Episode Date
Syriana (2005)
4114
 This harrowing drama was written and directed by Stephen Gaghan and features a star-studded cast with George Clooney, Matt Damon, and Jeffrey Wright. The threats are real, and America seems to be a lot of them as people put their thumbs on the scales of economy and justice. Let’s ponder the questions, “What level of corruption will create a facade of a functioning society? Is shadowy corruption better than a feudal state putting people to the sword? Are you depressed yet?” Thank you to Robert for commissioning this episode!  You can get your very own custom commissioned podcast by visiting https://support.baldmove.com/.

The Green Mile (1999)
4636
Based on the book of the same title written by Stephen King, comes a movie adapted and directed by Frank Darabont of Walking Dead fame. Tom Hanks and Michael Clark Duncan star in this gut-wrenching film about prisoners on death row in 1930s Louisiana. Though it’s a powerful movie, it is not without its flaws and harmful stereotypes. (And pro tip, watch this movie on HBO Max.)

The Master (2012)
4618
Listener beware, spoilers begin at (00:16:24). Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson comes a movie starring Joaquin Phoenix, a troubled ex-soldier, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, a cult leader. Anderson denies that that the cult in question is Scientology, but you watch the movie and try to tell us it isn’t. Amy Adams and Laura Dern also star in Anderson’s favorite movie out of his own catalog. And we wonder, did Tom Cruise ever have to go through this auditing process?

Nebraska (2013)
3469
Start your road trip in the great plains state of Nebraska and join Bruce Dern, Will Forte, and Bob Odenkirk as they navigate tough family ties. Directed by Alexander Payne comes some of his signature directorial details, humor drier than the plains in the summer heat and characters that are almost larger than life. In this epically-slow burn, you’ll find yourself or your family in this story.  Hey there! Check out https://support.baldmove.com/ to find out how you can gain access to ALL of our premium content, as well as ad-free versions of the podcasts, for just $5 a month!

I Heart Huckabees (2004)
4254
Listeners BEWARE, there are SPOILERS ahead (00:24:45) Want some philosophy with your dark comedy? From the director of Silver Linings Playbook and a cast with more stars than the Orion constellation comes a mind-bending black comedy. It’s a funny take on the meaning of life that sums up A.Ron’s life philosophy. Pick up your metaphysical magnifying glasses and join the existential detectives in answering the question, “How are we all connected?” Hey there! Check out https://support.baldmove.com/ to find out how you can gain access to ALL of our premium content, as well as ad-free versions of the podcasts, for just $5 a month!

Brazil (1985)
4119
It’s not just a philosophy teacher’s fever dream. Brazil, directed and co-written by Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam, has a lot to say about technology, bureaucracy, and loss of individual freedom between scenes of intestinal air ducts and suits full of sewage. There’s stuff we did and didn’t like, but I think we can all appreciate seeing Jonathan Pryce in one of his few leading roles. Grab your annotated copy of 1984 and settle in for this light sci-fi, absurdist criticism of society.  Hey there!

Three Thousand Years of Longing (2022)
1461
A.Ron’s is feeling warm and fuzzy and Jim is feeling pretty much nothing. When you can describe a movie as “erotica for the Twilight crowd”, that is going to attract a very particular audience, and that is A.Ron apparently. As if he weren’t magical enough, Idris Elba stars as a djinn granting Tilda Swinton’s wishes. Jim and A.Ron will be back for more first run coverage for Don’t Worry Darling and Amsterdam!  Hey there! Check out https://support.baldmove.com/ to find out how you can gain access to ALL of our premium content, as well as ad-free versions of the podcasts, for just $5 a month!

Lincoln (2012)
4856
Join us as we add another Daniel Day Lewis movie to our podcast, Lincoln directed by Steven Spielberg. Lewis’s Oscar-winning performance was surrounded by a killer cast and historical accuracy. Yes, you read that right. Unlike the beloved Gladiator, Lincoln's true to life portrayal takes a look at the titular character without the false bravado and vampires of other movies. Listen in as we dissect this masterclass in playing hate-able and lovable characters, creating authenticity in tone, and what it means to closely adhere to realism.

With a satisfying conclusion to a rocky season, Jim and A.Ron are here to break down their favorite and not-so-favorite moments of the season finale. A.Ron rescinds his previous “jumped the shark” analysis. With one great scene after another, the conclusion of this season came as an emotional gut punch. After that ending, A.Ron and Jim are looking forward to next season.  Got feedback?

The Age of Innocence (1993)
4475
Let’s take a dive into Scorsese’s catalog to a movie with those signature crane shots and quick cuts, but with an extremely low body count. The exploration of love and longing within a rigid world is portrayed by epic performances from Daniel Day Lewis, Michelle Pfieffer, and Winona Ryder and camerawork that speaks as much as the characters. In this odd child of Scorsese’s body of work, you’re sure to find swoon-worthy dialogue, Oscar winning costumes, and a love story with more than what meets the eye.  Thank you to The Epic Mouthful for commissioning this podcast!

Succession
3305
You’re familiar with the saga of Succession, what about the saga of making this episode about Succession? Life would be easier if we all loved this, but the world isn’t perfect. We checked out the pilot and season two finale. Why doesn’t this show work for us when things like Always Sunny do? I guess that’s the difference between buffoons and rich buffoons. There are great performances, design, and camera work, so on paper it’s well made, but still not for us. Thank you Greg for being a good sport and commissioning this podcast.

Hi Bob! A For All Mankind Podcast - S03E05 - Seven Minutes of Terror
5017
This episode gave us good scenes in bad storylines. After the space burial reminiscent of 2001: A Space Odyssey aesthetics, this interplanetary epic takes us through some emotion laden scenes. Danny is doing dumb stuff, Margo is doing dangerous stuff, and Sergei looks like the stuffing has been beat out of him. What does Aleida’s future look like if Margo’s secrets come to light? And are there cosmonaut defectors in the future?  Got feedback?

Will this race to Mars expose Russian spies and give rise to international tensions back home? Or will it all end in a friendly declaration of multi-ownership topped off with a round of hugs?

This is it. The missions to Mars gather enough speed for launch just in time for 1994. How? Well, some shortcuts were taken, some ships repurposed, and perhaps some small bit of nuclear technology was given to the Soviets by a reluctant spy who presumably would have to shave her head completely bald to actually seal the deal with Sergei.

Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of some weird ass love stories. In a show full of brilliant astronauts and hardcore investors, it’s no wonder that tensions run high. We talk about Harambe, yes the gorilla (RIP), and the office politics that are making their way into space.

David Simon ends his statement in a finale that leaves us both heartbroken and hopeful. The bad guys in blue are behind bars, but that’s not enough. The current broken system will churn out more. Does Jenkins, and people like him, truly realize that they are part of the problem? How far can this situation push until it breaks people like Nicole Steele? It makes us ask the question, what does it mean to truly do good and create a justice system based on rehabilitation and redemption? We will be having a wrap-up episode coming out soon, send us your thoughts at corners@baldmove.com.

Taking Back Our Corners - S01E04 - Part Four - Feedback
2949
Looking at the systemic problems impeding justice, we wonder: how do we create solutions? And that’s the rub, there are no immediate solutions. The way forward will be incremental changes over years. Sounds like too long? It is. This is a multigenerational problem. Hopefully the addition of shows like The Wire and We Own This City are changing minds and bringing more attention to issues that need to be dealt with.  And thank you to the Baltimore residents who write in to check the authenticity of the show and provide more context. And for confirming Jon Bernthal’s Baltimore dialect is accurate.   Hey there!

With only two episodes left to go, we are soon approaching the end of We Own This City. We hear the title of the show said in this episode and it’s as infuriating as it should be. The show asks the question, when the bully cops go too far even by the other bully cops standards, why do those people who could do something, still do nothing? When this corruption and violence is the input, then this unrest is the logical output.  Have some feedback? Send it in to corners@baldmove.com.  Hey there!

The VVitch (2015)

VVe are rounding out our Robert Eggers coverage vvith this commissioned episode covering The VVitch. Is this puritanical family suffering from shared hallucination, or real curse? Under the evil imagery, is Eggers telling us a dark fairytale or allegory for a repressive environment? Maybe it’s both and either vvay, this movie is burned into our minds. This movie excels at vvorking its vvay into your subconscious and making you feel absolutely uncomfortable.  Thank you Joey for commissioning this podcast! Hey there!

Another setup episode has us tapping our foot like a prostitute-loving lawyer on cocaine wondering when we'll get to the good stuff. And it's not that the episode isn't good, it's just that anticipation of Howard's downfall is killing us. But while the Kim and Jimmy plot taketh away, the Lalo plot finally arrives to giveth, with a forehead-slappingly obvious continuation that somehow managed to be a complete surprise.

Better Call Saul - S06E02 - Carrot and Stick
3505
It's a good thing they released these first two episodes of Better Call Saul season 6 on the same night because Nacho's story really needed it. It's not exactly the most interesting TV to watch a man run north and hide in a motel. They do what they can though. Aside from that, there's a lot to love about this one. Mike pulls some Mike stuff to scrub any evidence that might link Gus to the Lalo problem, while leaving a whopper of a question for us to ponder. And it's the return of the Kettlemans who Jimmy and Kim incorporate into their progressing scheme to take down Howard and get that sweet Sandpiper money.

The Beach (2000)
4352
Three years after his star turn in Titanic, Leonardo DiCaprio returns to the silver screen in The Beach, a movie where it’s hard to tell what is real and what may be hallucinated. Leo’s descent into insanity marks the end of his teenage heartthrob roles. Once you get beyond the 2000-era fashion, the movie poses enough platitudes and questions to consider the possible metaphors under the madness.  Thank you Ian from Atlanta for commissioning this podcast and supporting Bald Move.    You can get your very own custom commissioned podcast by visiting https://support.baldmove.com/.

Gangs of New York (2002)
5256
Gangs of New York is an Irish-American revenge story set in New York during the late 1800s, but it turns out to be a lot more than that.

Valkyrie (2008)

The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996)

Don't blame us, we had never seen The Long Kiss Goodnight! We put this movie up on Patreon as an option for our weekly Executive Producer poll to determine what movie we would cover and they picked it over Mr. Holland's Opus and The Ghost and the Darkness. This probably doesn't belong in the Prestige category but we hope you'll be willing to have a little fun with us in this Geena Davis and Sam Jackson amnesiatic-assassin movie.

Deep Water is a British documentary about a boat race in the late 1960s so maybe you can understand why I thought this pick from commissioner Aaron might be a little dry.

This week's Prestige podcast skirts the edge of what you can reasonably claim to be "prestige",Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. That’s right, Kevin Costner battles Alan Rickman and an English accent with the help of Morgan Freeman in this film that can’t decide if it wants to be a grim and gritty retelling or a campy romp through the classic legend.

Witness (1985)
4308
Today we’ve got Witness, the 1985 Harrison Ford-led visual guide to becoming Amish. In truth, it’s a romance film clad in suspenders, a milking hat, and the trappings of a noir thriller. The podcast was a lot of fun to record and hopefully just as much fun to listen to, especially if you want to hear about A.Ron's father’s irrational dread of grain entrapment.

Mulholland Drive (2001) 20th Anniversary re-release
4754
Oh boy… What can I say about this week’s big anniversary that won’t piss off the general public who apparently respects and admires the works of David Lynch? Well, I can say that we’re re-releasing our podcast on Mulholland Drive for its 20th anniversary. I can also say that the opinions expressed in the podcast are now 5 years old and I’ve seen exactly 1 David Lynch movie that I’ve enjoyed in that time.  But hey, A.Ron's here too, and he loved it. From the weird dumpster monsters to the strange musical interludes, he's down to clown on any wavelength Lynch chooses to broadcast. At least half the podcast will be from that perspective. So enjoy this now-20-year-old movie and what we had to say about it 5 years ago.

This is the only role that Denzel Washington has won an academy award in a leading role for, which seems crazy, I know! But it's pretty well-deserved as he and Ethan Hawke carry this movie. Without either of these performances, the movie wouldn't work. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on this early 2000s dirty cop drama.

That Thing You Do (1996)

It’s the 25th anniversary of That Thing You Do! It’s a whirlwind movie about the rise and fall of a fake 1950s pop band that popped right out of the Beatles mold. A bunch of young 90s names including Liv Tyler, Steve Zahn, Tom Everett Scott, and Charlize Theron are all wrangled by a very serious, but likeable Tom Hanks.

The Departed (2006)
4826
The Departed is one of the Scorsese movies that A.Ron and I most overlooked on first viewing. I had some inkling that it was good, but I couldn't say why. After watching it 15 years later, we both got it. There's a complex game of cat and mouse hidden under all those Boston accents and, despite clocking in at over 2.5 hours, it maintains the tension throughout.

2001: A Space Odyssey
5841
If you've seen it, you probably understand why we categorize 2001: A Space Odyssey as a prestige film. Yes, it takes place almost entirely in space. Yes, it has spaceships and aliens and wormholes. But it’s just so dang good that it deserves better than to be lumped in with the likes of pulpier sci-fi, like, say, an Armageddon. Thanks to Dr. John for commissioning this podcast on one of Stanley Kubrick's most celebrated films. We hope you enjoy.

3706
A big thank you to Dr. DeVito for commissioning Southpaw, the 2015 boxing movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a Raging Bull-type who just can’t get out of his own way while recovering from a traumatic accident. If you’ve seen any boxing movie ever made, you’ve seen some portion of this movie, as it borrows every trope you can think of. It does manage to deliver the emotional punches though, due mostly to the excellent cast.  You can get your very own custom commissioned podcast by visiting https://support.baldmove.com/.

We’re filling a huge gap in our nostalgic movie catalog with our 35th anniversary coverage of Stand By Me, the 1986 coming-of-age story about 4 young friends who hear rumor of the body of a boy in the woods and journey into the wilderness to find it. It stars someone both beloved and reviled by Star Trek fans around the globe, as well as River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, and a very young, very chubby Jerry O’Connell. It's considered a classic by many. Will it hold up 35 years later? Join us on the podcast to find out.

Barton Fink (1991) 30th Anniversary Re-release
3824
It's the 30th anniversary of this Coen Brothers classic so we're digging it out of the archive for a re-release. Thanks to überfan Anthony Basich who commissioned this personal podcast, for one of his favorite films, "Barton Fink". We talk about the occasionally dark, occasionally funny, very deep and dreamy, take on the creative process, the Hollywood establishment, the rise of national socialism, the dangers of homoerotic suppression, an expose of ghostwriters, and wait--what the hell? What is this film, anyway? We grapple with these issues and more.

Pump Up The Volume (1990)
4548
This week’s prestige film is Pump Up the Volume. Christian Slater plays a mild mannered highschooler by day who transforms into pirate radio station DJ Happy Harry Hard-on by night, to scandalize his conservative town with profanity laced tirades about sex, drugs, and the utter meaningless of life. Is this movie just teen-agey angsty bullshit, or does it have something relevant to say in 2021 where everyone has a microphone and a public platform? Join us for the podcast to find out.

Sideways (2004)
4491
This week, we’ve got my absolute favorite Paul Giamatti movie, Sideways. It’s a well-written but also hilarious movie where an extremely depressed Paul Giamatti begrudgingly helps his college roommate philander his way through northern California wine country. It has some all-time classic Giamatti moments that we can’t wait to talk about. Get Sideways with us this on this podcast.

The Green Knight (2021)

You've seen the trailer for The Green Knight, right? It looks really cool, like a flashier, trippier version of Excalibur. I mean, look at that poster! That's awesome! Well, if that's what you're expecting of the movie you're going to be disappointed. It's definitely more of an art film than an action movie.

Marriage Story (2019)
4325
Marriage Story is deceptively named, it has a deceptive poster, and its characters are deceiving (or at least deluding) themselves and their spouse. It's a passionate movie that also feels real in the way that it could happen to anyone anywhere, even though its happening to two exceptionally successful people.

Carlito's Way (1993)
3841
It’s the lesser-known, though still excellent, Al Pacino gangster film where he plays a recently released Puerto Rican gangster in NY who wants out of the game, he just needs to scrape together the cash to buy his way into his buddy’s tropical rent-a-car biz. It also stars a young John Leguizamo as Benny from the Bronx who’s the next generation of gangsters looking to make a name for themselves. It’s a great movie and we had a great time covering it. You gotta see Sean Penn as a coked up criminal lawyer in this one.

Almost Famous (2000)
5184
Almost famous is one of those movies that shouldn't feel as real as it does. It's an outrageous story about a teenaged musical critic who goes on tour with an up and coming rock band in the 1970s and accidentally finds himself writing the cover story for Rolling Stone. Totally relatable, right? Well, turns out it's a semi-autobiographical depiction of the writer / director Cameron Crowe's childhood, who spent his formative years touring with the likes of Skynyrd and Zeppelin as a music critic. You have to wonder how deep the similarities go when you see some of the stuff that happens in the movie, but it's immensely enjoyable and the soundtrack is fantastic. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on Almost Famous. Thanks you to Andrew for commissioning this podcast.

The Elephant Man (1980)

Maybe it's young Anthony Hopkins? Maybe it's the exceptional sound design? Maybe it's just that his style hadn't fully blossomed?

5046
Welcome to the 15th anniversary podcast for The Devil Wears Prada. It's not exactly my kind of movie but we missed the 10th anniversary and we know that a lot of our audience loves this movie so we checked it out. 15 years on, it seems like a bit of a mixed bag. The personal story of escaping a life that you never wanted in the first place is inspiring, but the way the movie treats the fashion industry at large left us fairly consternated.

Phantom Thread (2017)
4731
I was honestly nervous about this one. It's supposedly going to be Daniel Day-Lewis' final film and I'd heard mixed reviews before checking it out. It's also a movie about the stuffiest of dressmakers which is paced very... precisely. However, thanks mostly to a few incredible performances, it held my interest long enough to get to the moments that set this movie apart. There are some serious spoilers for those moments though so watch the movie, then come back and give our podcast a listen if you're so inclined.

Gran Torino (2008)
3719
At it's heart, Gran Torino is about an old, set-in-his-ways (racist) war veteran realizing that he has more in common with the hardworking, honest Asian family next door than he does with his own spoiled American family. The trouble is, the guy is just so damned racist that it's hard to get comfortable with him. And even when his opinion of the family next door changes, the offensive language he uses to describe them doesn't. Gran Torino is a tough movie to talk about.

First Blood (1982)

Even if they know better, they'll probably agree that this first movie in the franchise is called "Rambo". Neither of those things is entirely accurate, so we're setting the record straight in a podcast covering one of Sylvester Stallone's best movies.

Tombstone (1993)
4076
Gather round the campfire to hear us tell the tale of the gunfight at the box office corral where Kevin Costner and Kurt Russell dueled to settle which of them could create the better Wyatt Earp film. Though Costner started with his hand on the script, it was the faster, wilier Russell who prevailed in the end, buying up all the cowboy gear in Hollywood and raking in the dough while Costner's "Wyatt Earp" lay dead in the street. Seriously, that's exactly how it happened. The production of Tombstone is a tale for the ages and we're here to tell it. Join us on the podcast. It's a good one!

Misery (1990)

Over the years there have been many film adaptations of Stephen King's work. Today we're covering one of the finest. Starring Kathy Bates and James Caan, Misery is the story of fandom gone wrong. Or maybe it's an allegory for over-zealous editors. Or it could be an author's struggle with drug addiction and the backlash from fans when their writing ventures beyond a specific genre. Join us on the podcast as we debate this question and discuss what makes Misery so great.

In this week's episode of Fargo, the drug war is heating up... wait, I think I've said that before. In fact, it's been heating up for at least half the season now. And while things have certainly progressed, with bodies in the streets and gang shootings in the papers, the ambition of this season's storytelling make it somehow feel like the war is still simmering away on the back burner with just a single episode left.

Scott, it's a tale of an up-and-coming pool hustler trying to make it big but, more importantly, it's the story of a man trying to figure out what makes a person a "winner".

3079
This week we take a look at Ryan Coogler's first feature film, Fruitvale Station, about the 2009 murder of Oscar Grant. It is competently directed by Coogler but the impeccable performances by recognizable names such as Octavia Spencer and Michael B. Jordan, as well as its tragically-evergreen relevance, are what really make the film a must-see.

After we announced last week that we'd be covering Fruitvale Station, Spike Lee went and dropped his latest joint, Da 5 Bloods, on Netflix, to rave reviews. So, we've decided to postpone Fruitvale Station for a week in favor of timely coverage of what's sure to be a strong contender come Oscar season. Join us for the podcast to hear our what we thought.

Capote (2005)
2845
We hardly knew anything about Truman Capote but this meaty biopic impressed us anyway. Our review covers the outstanding performance of Philip Seymour Hoffman, the duality of Truman Capote (and maybe investigative journalists and authors generally), his life in the aftermath of the experiences depicted in the film, and much more.

Children of Men (2006)
3560
Children of Men is a fondly-remembered, dystopian, science fiction thriller about the end of humanity, from Alfonso Cuarón's mid-2000's filmography. A.Ron has never seen it. Jim saw it once many years ago and enjoyed it but wasn't blown away. What do we think of it over a decade later? Check out the podcast to find out.

The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)
2836
The Talented Mr. Ripley is a name for a film that only appeals to grandmothers above a certain age. And more specifically, English ones. They also have boring taste in men. But don't let the name fool you; the Talented Mr. Ripley is an excellent thriller and, unlike our podcast, it is decidedly not for boring English grandmothers. Learn more about your ad choices.

The Last of the Mohicans (1992)
2638
The Last of the Mohicans was a big hit in the year it was released. It made over $70m in the box office. It stars Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeleine Stowe in an epic period romance action drama set in the west during the French and Indian War. What would audiences think of the film if it was released today? I have no idea. But you can find out what we thought about it in 2020 right here.

The Conversation (1974)
2739
The Conversation (1974) is a film about a freelance surveillance specialist's (Gene Hackman) struggle with guilt, shame, ethics, and paranoia. Released in the same year as The Godfather Part II, it is also written and directed by Francis Ford Coppola. The trademark style of Coppola is obvious, but is it any good?

At less than 4 hours, we both feel like it's worth just about everyone's time to check out.

1917 (2020)
1335
Tonight Jim and A.Ron went to see Sam Mendes' WW1 film, 1917. It was a truly harrowing experience, and a strangely intimate piece despite the grand scale of the theater and war itself. George MacKay and Dean-Charles Chapman do incredible work forging an emotional connection with the audience in a very short amount of screen time. The movie is paced flawlessly, shot beautifully, whether it's the pitiless hell of no-man's land or a burning French town illuminated chiefly by the harsh flat light of flares as the British and German troops play a deadly game of cat and mouse. It's an extremely tough watch in places, but an effective reminder of the horrors and pointless futility of war.

Jim and I saw a Star Wars film tonight. We were displeased. If you loved or liked the film, we're really happy for you. But this trilogy wasn't for us, much like it's father, the prequel trilogy before it. If you hate the film, we totally get that, too. All we ask is that you try to be happy for the people who are happy, and try to be understanding to the people who are feeling a bit numb like us. We'll be back in 2020 for some more awesome movies, and probably a few that will suck, as is tradition.

Ford v Ferrari (2019)
999
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?

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! 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!

This episode of The Deuce has re-surfaced a lot of difficult feelings for Jim and A.Ron. Paul meets Tod's parents and it has us thinking about our own parents, beliefs, and mortality. Jim made an accurate prediction about Frankie's home movie, but it's still a touching family moment. Eileen also confronts her idea of family and support. Lori is on her own while Greg does "his own thing". There is plenty of damage to be had all around.    Join the discussion: Email | Forums Follow us: Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Leave Us A Review on Apple Podcasts Learn more about your ad choices.

Joker (2019)
1374
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!

We are halfway through the final season of The Deuce, and there is a lot to discuss. A.Ron has two prophecies come true in one episode! Lori is back in New York, and battling her insecurities. Abby recruits Candi to speak with Women Against Pornography; and it's a tough crowd.

Ad Astra (2019)
1423
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'll see you in two weeks for The Joker!

 A.Ron and Cecily have seen the latest from Baron Julian Fellowes, Downton Abbey the movie. We had a grand time catching up with the family, and we even met some new members. The King and Queen are coming to stay, which means there's lots to do! Upstairs, the family (as always) can't seem to get out of their own way in order to find happiness. Downstairs, the staff pulls together (again) to defeat a common enemy, consequences be damned! Ultimately, the movie feels like a greatest hits from the previous seasons, but it was nice to visit again. We think you'll find yourself very welcome at Downton.  Learn more about your ad choices.

The Deuce - S03E02 - Morta di Fame
3052
The Deuce is under a lot of pressure in "Morta di Fame", as disease, drugs, greedy gangsters and corrupt politicians all angle to take a bite out of its inhabitants. It's hard to see how established players like Rudy, Vincent, and Paul are going to make it out okay, but there is a glimmer of hope that Frankie just might be able to survive by being to small time to worry about. Meanwhile on the West coast Lori is waking up to the fact that she's traded a pimp named Cici for one named Kiki. Grim proceedings all around, lightened only by Bobby's hair piece and Frankie's fledgling paper bag porn empire. Plus, we get educated on all things Greenwich in the feedback section!

IT Chapter Two (2019)
1183
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.

Harlots continues it's back-half swoon as things continue to not make much sense, and we're left with too few characters we genuinely care about. Sure, Lady Fitz's impulsive kiss of Nancy was exciting, but there are two many things happening because of happenstance, chance encounters, and nothing really feels like it has consequences. There is one more week for Harlots to right it's ship, but Cecily and I fear we're once again the undertakers of Bald Move.

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 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!  Learn more about your ad choices.

 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.

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.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

And it's unfortunately because once again a classic X-Men plotline is burnt (refried, in this case) and all-time great Magneto and Professor X performances by Fassbender and MacElvoy are wasted on a script with muddled characters and paper thin villains. Long time fans of the X-Men will enjoy some great stand alone moments with their favorite characters, and the core chemistry of Xavier / Magneto / Mystique work to get the film's emotional heart a brief jump. But ultimately the film folds underneath the weight of apathy and ugly FX work.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Chernobyl - Episode 5 - Vichnaya Pamyat
3973
The final episode of HBO's Chernobyl, "Vichnaya Pamyat" derives it's title from the traditional prayer said at the end of an Eastern Orthadox funeral; "memory eternal". Our hope is that everyone who has watched this and will watch this in the years to come takes to heart this encomium, that we need to remember the cost of lies, the cost of taking our eye off our institutions and systems we setup to keep us safe and prosperous, because if you fail to do so the cost only becomes more dear. Thanks for watching along with us, we've loved having you all along for the experience. Final recommendations for more reading and watching from our fellow fans; this site has more information about the fate of dogs left in the Exclusion Zone, and it's not all bad news! Apparently some dogs have recovered and are healthy enough to be adopted! There are also two YouTube videos by Veritasium, "The Most Radioactive Place on Earth", and "A Walk Around Chernobyl".  Leave Us A Review on Apple Podcasts Join the discussion: Email | Forums | Facebook | Twitter Learn more about your ad choices.

Jim and I have come to Deadwood at long last, to behold it in movie form. We've seen differing amounts, but we have a lot of esteem for David Milch's western epic, and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent this week at the old camp. We talk about our experiences with the show, how Justified informs our thoughts on Deadwood and vice versa, Milch's thoughts on mortality, and how amazingly the movie gave equal closure and tribute to it's legion of incredible characters.  Support Bald Move: Club Bald Move Leave Us A Review on Apple Podcasts Join the discussion: Email | Forums | Facebook | Twitter Learn more about your ad choices.

Good Omens, Barry Season 2 Wrap Up
3311
Jim, A.Ron and Cecily team up to take on the end of the world as envisioned by Amazon Prime's Good Omens. Adapted from the novel of the same name by co-author Neil Gaiman himself, it offers a warm, funny, and human take on the Apocalypse, focusing on the unlikely friendship between a demon (David Tennant) and an angel (Michael Sheen) who have decided they like Earth like it is, thankyouverymuch, and team up to keep it that way. Then, Cecily and A.Ron talk about their thoughts on the conclusion of the sophomore season of HBO's Barry(00:26:45).

Chernobyl - Episode 4 - The Happiness of All Mankind
4152
Hello, comrades! It's time once again to descend into the man-made hell of Chernobyl, now with 100% more puppy-murder! The deep irony of the episode's title, "The Happiness of All Mankind", underscores the misery of the people who were forced to evacuate, the soul and body destroying heroism of the soldiers and engineers doing the work that must be done, as well as the predicament of the people that have to decide between their principles and ethics and disobeying a political structure that can not only take your career and your life from you, but those of your friends and families. As we close the books on the immediate disaster mitigation and clean up, we look forward to what justice we can get for the victims and the world itself as we deal next week with the judicial and political fallout of Chernobyl. We got a lot of informed and professional feedback on the many questions we've been wrestling with on this podcast, but we were provided two documents in particular you might find interesting. First, a paper on how the "Iron Law of Oligarchy" applies even to democratic and open structures such as Wikipedia. Second, a specific example of the tyranny of Wikipedians in the form of a misguided-grammar Nazi. You may also be interested to read an analysis of the relative risks of nuclear power vs coal power from the The Lancetthat I mentioned in the podcast.

Me, Cecily and Jim have some recommendations and thoughts for your weekend viewing! We rave about the nearly flawless two seasons of Fleabag we just saw on Amazon Prime (00:00:00), Jim gives a bit of a preview for Netflix's new dramedy Dead to Me (00:00:00), starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, and then... we get to our review of The Perfection (00:00:00). This is a movie that Jim walked out on. Twice. Yet people are loving this film. What gives? Cecily and me try to defend the film on it's merits, but the truth is it's a hot mess of a film that tries to get away with a lot it probably shouldn't be trying, and you're either up to seeing it or you're not.  Join the discussion: Email | Forums Follow us: Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Leave Us A Review on Apple Podcasts Learn more about your ad choices.

Aladdin (2019)
1385
 If you're wishing for a three-way review of Disney's latest live-action adaptation, Aladdin, then listener you're in luck. Wish granted. Cecily, Jim, and I went to see it tonight with appropriately low expectations, but were very pleasantly surprised at how much fun and energy the movie provided. Better, the script smartly adapted the original, improving it's pacing while also adding depth to Jafar's intrigue and Jasmine's character, making it smarter and more relatable to modern audiences. The Tomatometer is kinda brutal for Al and friends right now (59% as of this writing), so take our review with a grain of salt. And we're still skeptical of the long term viability of these live-action adaptations, but we feel like this movie is proof that they aren't necessarily doomed to be pointless wastes of time.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Chernobyl - Episode 3 - Open Wide, O Earth

 Jim and I have seen episode three of HBO's Chernobyl series, "Open Wide, O Earth", and are shaken by the graphic depiction of the Chernobyl first responders' last days. We get to see the horror from multiple perspectives, the victims themselves, the and the friends and family who struggle to cope with this strange manner of death and the danger it poses to them. Meanwhile as the Soviets manage to contain and stop the fire, we gear up for the long war ahead; to fully contain the death and destruction of Chernobyl it will require 750k lives and three years of sacrifice. Will they be up for the challenge? And will they solve the mystery of the reactor's destruction, so that it might never happen again? All this plus some light discussion on the relative merits of free market capitalism vs centrally planned economies in feedback. You know, kids stuff.

Willow (1988)
2314
The Super Serious Film Fest: Fantasy reaches it's thrilling conclusion with a look at 1998's Willow. The brain child of one George Lucas, directed by protege Ron Howard, and starring the delightful Warwick Davis, Willow still struggles to this day to find an audience. It suffers from simultaneously being curiously dark for a family film, but far too simple, uncomplicated, and broad to hold much interest for adults. While it boasted some cutting edge special effects for our day, the best one might be the baby Elora herself, played by a suite of infants. It shouldn't be possible for a baby to be this winsome and charming, but there it is. Stream Willow online: https://amzn.to/2w9uo1g Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

We're all for combat innovations including insane knife work, horse and dog augmented combat, and up-armored adversaries, but there's only so many times you can watch Keanu kill a guy with a gun before you start checking your watch.

Novice Pokemon Trainer A.Ron is joined by S Rank Trainer Cecily to break down the action in Detective Pokemon. We were both surprised at how straightforward a kids film this was. To be fair, we weren't expecting Deadpool out of a Ryan Reynolds' starring Pokemon film, but parents looking to be thrown an adult bone over the heads of their children are probably going to be disappointed. Still, it's relentlessly, almost threateningly cute, and the more into Pokemon you are the more you'll appreciate the universe and background details they're packing into the scene.

Chernobyl - Ep. 1 - 1:23:45
3644
Chernobyl is already one of the most fascinating and relevant disaster movies I can think of, and we're only one episode into it's five episode run. "1:23:45" does a great job of introducing us to the men and women that will be affected by the nuclear power plant's explosion, sets up the political dysfunction that will impede the increasingly desperate and heroic attempts to contain the environmental catastrophe, and visually and audibly highlight the dangerous, hellish conditions the rescue workers and plant technicians were forced to confront. Is the Chernobyl disaster a uniquely Soviet phenomenon? Could something like this happen in the West? And what lessons about a pervasive culture of lying and misinformation can we apply to our lives today? We hash out these questions and much more.

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.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh, it tells the tale of NBA management squeezing the players for a reduced share of profits during a labor dispute, and one high profile sports agent that is caught in the middle. It works on the level of a heist film, but it also works as a commentary on the power dynamics of labor in general. It's well made, well-acted, and it's final act is as thought provoking as it is fun to watch. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part (2019)
633
Jim and A.Ron have seen The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part and it's almost if not just as good as the first one. Father/son relational dynamics take a back seat to big bro/little sis dynamics for the sequel, but Everything Remains Awesome. This movie is bright, colorful, funny, inventive, and packs a lot of heart. Go see it unless your inner child is dead and your heart is gripped by icy black despair. In which case I'd recommend The Lego Batman Movie, instead. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
3787
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... Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Velvet Buzzsaw (2019)
2375
Jim and A.Ron checked out the latest Netflix original film, "Velvet Buzzsaw". Directed by Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler) and starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo. It functions well enough as a horror story, a farcical look at art criticism, as well as an introspective look at the creative process and the related critical process. We have quibbles here and there, but the film looks great, has some inventive/gruesome deaths, and the main cast has a lot of fun being terrible people. Learn more about your ad choices.

Polar (2019)
2004
Jim and I have seen the new Netflix original movie, "Polar". Based on a graphic novel of the same name, "Polar" is an ultraviolent revenge flick combining elements from "John Wick", "Crank", and "Sin City" with an engaging and energetic performance from Mads Mikkelsen as anaaginh hitman. Unfortunately, it's also a tonal mess, careening from slap stick humor to gory horror and back again, never sure of when to take itself seriously and commit to a point of view.

Aquaman (2018)
1941
Unfortunately, while it is clearly the second best DCU film after Wonderwoman, in our opinion it's not nearly that good, and is still trying to play catch up to their more marvelous competition. Like a lot of these DC properties, it feels equally rushed and bloated, as if they stuffed three Aquaman movies into one. Any one act of this movie would have made an excellent installment of a kickass Aquaman trilogy, given a chance to breathe and establish their characters our connection to them.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Fyre (Netflix) and Fyre Fraud (Hulu)
4033
Netflix and Hulu had dueling documentaries on Fyre festival. With slightly different focuses, the documentaries broadly outline how founder Billy McFarland built several ponzi schemes on the idea of selling a fictionalized "baller" lifestyle to young, naive, rich people and took them for a ride. We discuss influencing, the morality of excess, and engage in the kind of barely contained glee at seeing narcissists fall from grace that you'd expect in this discussion of all things Fyre.

Glass (2019)
1346
Woof. Jim and I really, really wanted to like Glass, the sequel to the terrific Unbreakable and Split. And it should work. Bruce Willis, Samuel Jackson, and Anya Joy Taylor are good, and James McAvoy does more incredible work as the Horde. But the script is just about the laziest damn thing we've ever seen. Tons of plotholes, characters succeeding not because of their brilliance but others' stupidity, and Shyamalan indulging the worst of his third act instincts. It's a genuine disappointment, ya'll.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch
3566
Jim and A.Ron have explored the latest Black Mirror mindf$#%, Bandersnatch. Essentially a choose your own adventure book turned into an interactive Netflix app, Bandersnatch periodically pauses to ask you how the narrative should proceed as you attempt to guide a troubled young 1980's programmer on the cusp of creating an acclaimed video game of the same name. With branching storylines that can have outcomes that can be mundane, psychotic, or extremely meta, we ask if this is the future of television?

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)
1207
We have seen Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and declare it to be one of, if not the best Spider-Men movies of all time. Amazingly fun, incredibly inspiring, spectacularly stylish, and endlessly imaginative, Spider-Verse expands the franchise in entirely new directions while maintaining the magic that makes Spider-Man great; the moral obligations of an average person who is blessed with great power.

Does a movie starring Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman, Claire Foy, and that guy who played Al Capone in Boardwalk Empire actually deserve a viewing? A.Ron and I certainly have an opinion.

The Romanoffs - 108 - The One That Holds Everything
3016
The Romanoffs arrives at the finish line in "The One That Holds Everything". If you were hoping that this would be the one that brings into focus Weiner's thesis for The Romanoffs, you'll probably be disappointed. An ambitious story framing device that doesn't quite work leads to a surprise ending that doesn't feel earned, and we're left at the end of it all confused and asking "why?" What is so fascinating about the Romanovs that justifies the time and expense that went into making this, or watching it?

Creed II (2018)
985
We got a one-two punch to our nostalgia as Creed 2 relentlessly broke us and a theater full of Rocky diehards down. Up and coming director Steven Caple Jr. recaptures the magic of the original Creed, Michael B. Jordan is amazing as always, Sylvester Stallone continues to age like fine wine into the role he was born to play, and Tessa Thompson once again shows that playing a boxer's wife/girlfriend doesn't require you to be a human wet blanket. If you're a Rocky fan, you're going to like this film. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Romanoffs - 107 - End of the Line
2877
This, by our estimation, is the second best episode of The Romanoffs, but that's not saying much about "End of the Line". It features fairly engaging material involving a couple desperate to have a child engaging in grey-market adoption shenanigans in Russia, and the man and woman in question are appealing and sympathetic as leads. The script also approaches "crackling" in places, as these potential parents fight over how far they're willing to go and what compromises they'll accept for their child.

Con Air (1997) - Super Serious Film Fest
2815
Multiple viewings and hours of sober reflection have led us both to believe that Con Air is a bad movie. The plot is contrived, the accents are awful, and it's perhaps the least "Cagey" performance in Cage's entire career. And yet, maybe based on star-power alone, it remains a classic which simply must be watched. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Romanoffs - 106 - Panorama
2538
Jim and A.Ron think this latest episode of Amazon's The Romanoffs, "Panorama" is a mess. At best, it's a mildly interesting yet gorgeous travelogue for Mexico City. At worst, it's a poorly, written, directed, acted, and edited mess that has no idea what it wants to say, and is unable to grasp any of the subjects it reaches for. The only thing that kind of works is the relationship between the two ridiculously photogenic protagonists, but they are also the least interesting of the premises.

Overlord (2018)
1111
Another split decision on the latest first run Bald Movie, the WW2-themed action-horror film, Overlord. The serious and somber tone set against the gonzo and outrageous action quickly lost Jim. I thought the film delivered a pretty solid war film, followed by a tense and effective horror film, then rounded into a solid action romp that unfortunately started collapsing under the weight of too many action movie tropes.  Learn more about your ad choices.

It's a real noodle-bender which features one of Nicolas Cage's finest performances. Fitting, since it puts a bow on the Summer portion of Season of the Cage. Learn more about your ad choices.

The Deuce - 209 - Inside the Pretend
4604
The Deuce wrapped up it's 2nd season in style, with "Inside the Pretend". Simon and Pelecanos did an admirable job putting all their players in position to make the jump to the 80's. The pimps seem on the wane, the porn industry is still waxing, but the men and women of the industry don't seem to be enjoying their ascent as much as it would have seemed at this season's outset. It's hard to have a sunny outlook when people you care about wind up dead; that goes double when you're the one doing the killing.

The Romanoffs - 105 - Bright and High Circle
4606
The fifth episode of Amazon's The Romanoffs has something to say, but we're not sure what it is, if it's worth saying, and if Matthew Weiner is the right spokesperson for the message, which seems to be; the worst thing you can be accused of is accusing somebody else of something they didn't do. Regardless of how we felt about the themes at play, the presentation left a lot to be desired as well, featuring clunky dialog and either stagey acting and/or bizarre editing choices or both.
