Jim finally decides it’s time to learn the nav ball in what is our closest attempt yet at the total destruction of Perth. We’re still half a planet away but we’ve got them surrounded.
It’s just before our move to the new studio and this might be the lunch that brings the whole thing down.
What do you get when you take the classic Western remake of an original piece of Japanese film-making art, and add Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Ethan Hawke to the mix? A sum that is less than it’s parts, that’s what. Enjoy our spoiler-free review of the movie and a discussion of upcoming movies and trailers on the house, but if you want to listen to us crack wise on D’Onofrio and Hawke’s accents, you’ll have to be a Club Member to gain access to our full spoiler podcast.

After an off-week last Tuesday, Halt and Catch Fire is back to form with episode 6. Jim and Eric sit down to talk about the entire lying Clark family, Bangin’ Bos, and the new horizons for Joe, among other things. As always, there’s a new Tandy Shandy recipe as well.
Josh Black stepped forth to commission the mind blowing 2008 film, Pontypool. Starring the very underrated Stephen McHattie, and directed by veteran cult filmmaker Bruce McDonald, Pontypool is set in a small Canadian town where a humbled former shock jock takes on the job of talking about the sleepy local news in the wee hours of the morning. And then something big happens. I really can’t tell you more without spoiling a great film that should be seen by a lot of people, and right now you can see it streaming from among other places, Netflix, so I encourage you to give it a whirl before listening to this podcast. Things get crazy and “deep” in the way things sometimes do on these podcasts. Do not translate this message.
Jim and A.Ron are back with a final sign off for Game of Thrones for 2016, wrapping up our season one coverage with a comparison from season one to G.R.R.M.’s A Game of Thrones novel, and tons of listener feedback. But we aren’t going into hibernation, no no no. If you have enjoyed our Game of Thrones coverage at Bald Move, please consider following some of our other shows such as our coverage of Westworld (coming soon!), Mr. Robot, Halt and Catch Fire, American Horror Story, or The Walking Dead to tide you over until next year!
In this episode, we learn the hard lessons; every rocket needs stability assist, you also have to turn on the stability assist, and even with stability assist things can still go horribly wrong. At this point you should be questioning if we’ll ever destroy Perth.
We broke the rules! We’re bringing you bonus Fincher coverage from the first two episodes of House of Cards.

It contains many Fincher-isms, call backs to his films, and an epic foreshadowing scene. Entertaining stuff. Join us next…
A.Ron and Cecily take a peek at the super-mysterious season six of FX’s American Horror Story, which turns out to take the form of “My Roanoke Nightmare”. We break down all of the Juicy goodness on hand, give valuable life advice on how to survive car accidents and hot tub death traps, and discuss fair market value of real estate before considering lots our fellow fan’s observations and insights. How long can the show push it’s weird show within a show format? Stay tuned, and find out.
Jim’s getting impatient with Mr. Robot’s stubborn refusal to give him answers, and found the multiplication of questions in this latest episode maddening. A.Ron is just excited to get to the robots, time travel, and bullet time fueled kung fu fighting. Who’s right? Will Mr. Robot satisfy our need to know in the final episode, or will it punt all substantial questions and resolution of plot lines until next season? See you next week to find out!
