Jim and A.Ron agree that this latest episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “Eps3.6fredrick&tanya.chk”, was pretty good, but on little else beyond that. We are in violent disagreement over the direction of Angela and Tyrell, but that just makes for an exciting podcast where naked hostility seems to be lying in wait around every corner. But whether or not you think Tyrell is an actual human or if Angela is a horrifying baby person suddenly, there is a lot to talk about and discuss. White Rose dunks on Phillip, Leon blazes up to Knight Rider, Irving tells Mr. Robot how it is, beautifully filmed desert vistas that would bring a tear to even Vince Gilligan’s eye, and we get closure on Trenton and Mobley. All great stuff, and it puts the show in fine shape as it heads into the seasons final act. See you next week!
Jim and A.Ron are delighted with another suspenseful, well crafted episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.5_kill-process.inc”. Great dialog, great, inventive action, solid acting and exceptional editing come together in one very satisfying package. We’re mid-season and these episodes feel like season finales! What will be coming in the weeks ahead?! Join us again next week to find out!
Cecily and A.Ron discuss the latest DC comic book movie attempt, and one with a lot of hopes riding on it, Justice League. It’s a real who’s who of comic book movies, does it manage to build on the momentum of the very good Wonder Woman, or is this another Superman vs Batman level disappointment? Well, we’d have to say it falls right in between those two extremes. It’s not great, but it’s also not terrible, and does just enough to hopefully give DC some room to breathe and establish these other presumably great characters in their own films and organically setup their universe for the next time the League has to assemble.
Jim and A.Ron were blown away by the latest real time “oner” episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.4_runtime-err0r.r00”. We think the technique was employed skillfully here, increasing the drama, tension, and immediacy. We’re also left with a lot of questions regarding the state of Stage 2, Angela’s relative hacking skills, the nature of Mr. Robot’s relationship with Elliot, and we’d love to know exactly what Darlene is up to, and how much of her plan the FBI has signed off on. More answers surely to come, but this was a fun ride!
A.Ron and Jim saw the most recent film adaptation of the Agatha Christie mystery classic, Murder on the Orient Express. Directed and starring Kenneth Branagh, as well as a baker’s dozen other stars, is lush and lavish and maybe missing a few pieces it needs to be assembled into a fully functional whole? It’s like an Ikea bookshelf with a few screws and dowel rods missing, is what we’re saying. We discuss our general, non-spoiler thoughts before talking about upcoming films, before getting to our Club Member only spoiler section. If you want to hear our full thoughts on this and many other first run Bald Movies, consider joining the Club today!
USA’s Mr. Robot continues to tease out the plot for season three, as all the major players are keeping things pretty close to the vest as the circle each other, testing loyalties, telling version of the truth they think people want to hear, and sniffing for betrayals. We break down some of the most popular theories for what White Rose is cooking up with the Dark Army, talk about the possible fate of Darlene, and discuss if we’re sure we have it nailed down exactly when Elliot is Elliot and when he’s Mr. Robot. Could there be a third identity at play? We also consider some feedback on economics before signing off until next week!
Jim and A.Ron have seen Thor: Ragnarok and let us be the millionth person to tell you that it is fun and colorful. There isn’t much else there, but, you know, but director Taika Waititi ensured that it’s really fun and really colorful. It asks some big questions about Thor, and Odin, and even the Hulk, but isn’t really interested in the answers. It’s not a bad thing, because it is really, really fun. Cate Blanchett is clearly enjoying being a vampy big bad with a flair for irony and the dramatic, Jeff Goldblum is a delight as an eccentric gladiatorial slave owner. The premise and resolution are quite clever. We just are a little puzzled at some of the over the top early buzz hailing it as the new benchmark for comic book movies.
A.Ron and Cecily went to do a make up review of the Coen Brothers written, George Clooney directed film Suburbicon, and it’s not great, Bob. Cecily saw some interesting things with the social commentary and A.Ron is in agreement that the movie was good looking and well acted, but ultimately the movie is pointless, depressing, and disappointing. We also discuss trailers like we do, but if you want to hear the full spoilers review of the film, you’ll have to be a Club Member. Why not join today?
A.Ron and Jim check out the latest on USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.2_legacy.so”. A Tyrell centered episode that A.Ron doesn’t hate? It’s a Halloween miracle! We discuss our growing love for Irving, the mostly successful retconning and course correction this episode brings retro-actively to season two, and much more!
Welcome to our latest effort to give Bald Move Club Members a transparent look into the day to day decisions and inner workings of the Bald Move empire. Today, we take a long awaited look into our 2017 financial situation. We discuss the impact the “Save Bald Move” campaign had (spoiler: it saved Bald Move), the immense amount of Game of Thrones traffic we got in July and the attending performance of the GoT club membership sale, the advertising bonanza we had, how we make projections, and how things are looking for 2018. For you nervous nellies out there, relax, the news is all good! Finally, we discuss plans for the future. And give thanks, because without you, we wouldn’t be here today. THANK YOU!
