Hellboy (2019)
Jim and I saw the Neil Marshall helmed, David Harbour starring 2019 reboot of Hellboy. And it's the definition of a mixed bag. Sporting an impressively low 11% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Jim thought the movie was bad, but I borderline loved it....
24 min
Pet Sematary (2019)
A.Ron and Jim talk about the latest attempt at a Stephen King adaptation, Pet Sematary. The movie is genuinely scary and horrifying when it wants to be, unfortunately in our opinion they squander a lot of time and goodwill in the first act...

Happy belated "Singin' in the Rain" Day!
Cecily and A.Ron declare March 24th as international Singin' in the Rain Day! Singin' is the greatest Hollywood musical ever devised, and should be seen by everyone that cares about movies as an artform, as well as every human with a beating heart. If...

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind (2019)
We've seen Chiwetel Ejiofor's (star of 12 Years a Slave, Doctor Strange) directorial debut on Netflix, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, and found it compelling and enlightening. Based on a true story about a Malawian boy who saves...
39 min
Captain Marvel (2019)
We have seen the latest Marvel super extravaganza, Captain Marvel, and come away with the suspicion that it's missing something from the usual Marvel formula. If anything, it feels DC-esque in the way it's attempting to shoe horn in a...

At long last we're ready to wrap up our second annual "Groundhog Day" Star Wars movie marathon! With the help and support of the Bald Move community, we raised $15,691.51 for the National Alliance to End Homelessness over 24 grueling hours...

Roma (2018)
Jim and A.Ron have seen the highly acclaimed Netflix original, "Roma", and we're conflicted. On the one hand, we can see what it's seen as great; it's beautiful to look at, and it's final act is as good as anything you'll see anywhere and is widely...

The Lives of Others (2006)
Nicholas Ragovis / AKA Doctor_Nick, victor of the Bald Move Fantasy Football League, has come to claim his spoils; a commissioned podcast! He has a great film for us, the 2006 German film The Lives of Others.  Written and directed by Henckel von...

Alita: Battle Angel (2019)
Jim and A.Ron saw Alita: Battle Angel tonight, and declare it a mess, albeit a beautiful, groundbreaking one in terms of effects work. This feels like the first half of the third part of a movie trilogy; everything is mysterious, nothing...
10 min
High Flying Bird (2019)
We took a look at the latest Netflix original, High Flying Bird. Directed by Steven Soderbergh and shot on an iPhone 8, it tells the tale of NBA management squeezing the players for a reduced share of profits during a labor dispute, and...
37 min
The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part (2019)
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....

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Special thanks to Hatorian, who by right of conquest in the Bald Move Fantasy Football leagues has won his prize; a commissioned podcast of his choice. He has chosen wisely, selecting the classic 1994 prison/drama/inspirational The Shawshank...
61 min
Velvet Buzzsaw (2019)
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...
38 min
Polar (2019)
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...
29 min
Aquaman (2018)
Jim and I missed Aquaman when it first washed up on our shores late last year, but we were lured in by general positive reviews and the massive audience and bank it's pulling in. What did we think? Unfortunately, while it is clearly the second...
30 min
Glass (2019)
Woof. Jim and I really, really wanted to like Glass, the sequel to M. Night Shyamalan's terrific Unbreakable, and the surprisingly good / sneaky amazing Split. And it should work. Bruce Willis, Samuel Jackson, and...

Creed II (2018)
Jim and A.Ron got a one-two punch to their sense of nostalgia as Creed 2 relentlessly broke us and a theater full of Rocky diehards down. It should not be possible to build so much pathos and legend on the somewhat shaky...

Overlord (2018)

Bad Times at the El Royale (2018)

Unforgiven (1992)

Special thanks to multi-multi-multi-commissioner Sean Ray for dialing up the number to Blade Runner: The Final Cut (2007). This edition is intended by director Ridley Scott to be the definitive version. The interesting thing is, Jim and I have...
73 min
Mandy (2018)
Mandy is a film by Panos Cosmatos starring Nick Cage. It is both a slow burn, 70’s style horror film dipped in acid, and a gonzo Nick Cage action film. It continually suffers from being torn in these two very different directions. A.Ron...
17 min
A Matter of Life and Death (1946)
Special thanks to commissioner Jaimie T. for having us check out the classic 1946 British film classic, “A Matter of Life and Death”. Featuring a story that pits love against the cosmic law of death, it explores post World War 2 tensions between...

The Nun (2018)
Jim and A.Ron put on their brown pants tonight to go out and see The Nun, the latest installment in The Conjuring universe, but only one of us needed to. The film’s getting mixed reviews; and Jim worries that co-writer James Wan’s...
22 min
The Little Stranger (2018)
Jim and I had high hopes for the Gothic horror film, The Little Stranger, thinking it would be an ultra atmospheric mash up of The Witch with Downton Abbey. Instead, we got a commentary on upper class angst during the...

A Few Good Men (1992)
Special thanks to our commissioner for today’s podcast, Sean Ray. You may recognize him as the man behind such classics as It Follows, and Black Rain, which if nothing else is unique. Today he selects the great A Few Good Men, where a...

Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018)
Jim and A.Ron have seen the latest “how old is Tom Cruise again?!” installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, “Fallout”, and it’s crazy. The plot around the absolutely bonkers stunt work is a bit thin, but the stunts themselves...

Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again (2018)
Cecily and A.Ron have seen the sequel to one of their favorite movies, Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again, and we think if you’re a fan of the original, there is a lot for you to like here. It’s too damn bad the trailers spoiled a reveal that...

Pride and Prejudice (2005)

Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

Deadpool 2 (2018)
We have seen Deadpool 2!  If you saw Deadpool, and liked it, well, here is more of it.  It is arguably even better, or at any rate, just as good.  We loved Deadpool, and had an even better time with 2. ...

Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
It took ten years of careful buildup to make the massive undertaking that is Avengers: Infinity War possible, but was all the effort worth it?  Hell, yes.  This is hands down the most epic comic book film ever made, and it is full to...

A Quiet Place (2018)
