Bald Move has an extra special Christmas present for you! It’s the Star Wars holiday special that we deserve. Join Pedro Pascal, the beloved MANDALORIAN, in his struggle against the evil DISNEY CORPORATION. Can Pedro save Christmas and Star Wars from a repeat of the dreaded Star Wars Holiday Special of 1978? Or will the Christmas spirit wither in the House of Mouse?
Continuing the Bald Move Christmas season is Love Actually (2003) and three more drinks from the Advent Calendar! This movie was written and directed by Richard Curtis, the one British director you’ve definitely heard of. Jim finds this movie to be indefensibly bad. A.Ron steps in to defend parts of it. Just parts. Join Jim and A.Ron and their unrefined palettes as they talk about what love is actually.
A.Ron is back to talk about House of the Dragon season 2 teaser trailer.
Stand-up comic Steve Ausburne (@ausfest) gives the most superficial take possible on the HOTD season 2 trailer.
Lunchtime! It’s the officially official kick off to the Bald Move Christmas season! Break out your advent calendars and sit back to enjoy this boozy lunch. Watch A.Ron and Jim drain their bottles and fill up with Christmas cheer. How many hours of Bald Move have you listened to this year?
Political tensions are high and attempted murder makes things worse! Dani finally unleashes on Ed. The Soviets soft launch a coupe. And Martian rock engagement rings are the next craze. Join Jim and A.Ron as they review the newest episode of For All Mankind.
John Woo came out of retirement to deliver this Christmas gift. We hope he kept the gift receipt. It’s not the follow up to Violent Night (2022) Jim and A.Ron were hoping for. Joel Kinnaman is a treat, but it’s a rough ride. Jim has a solution to fix this movie.
Noah Hawley is leaning heavily into the supernatural aspect. This episode is packed with references to history and lore. You might be saying, “Whoa now! That’s a lot of background information I don’t care to look up!” That’s ok because Jim and A.Ron did all the research for you. You’ll soon understand the sentence: A sin-eater finds a home.
The social order deteriorates rapidly in King’s Landing. Jan Wilson helps us think through the chaos of violence, dismemberment, and hatred.
Akira Kurosawa’s somber film, Ikiru, ponders the meaning of life and death. A businessman with terminal cancer navigates his way through bureaucracy and family dynamics while trying to figure out the best way to use his remaining time. This is a film to return to every so often as it will take on different meaning for you in different points of your life.
