What a difference a word, and one excellent writer / director, makes! The Suicide Squad is a complete 360 from the steaming pile of garbage that was Suicide Squad. It’s fun, action-packed, ultra-violent and everything we would hope to see from the evolution of subversive superhero movies.
This is in the running for the worst podcast Bald Move has ever released. One of us was feeling what this movie was doing. The other, not so much. We also struggled to figure out exactly what this movie’s thesis was. Regardless, we talk for about an hour about Liam Neeson’s wolf-based Taken follow-up.
What do you get when you pair up Steven Seagal with an apron, a playboy playmate, and the insanity of both Gary Busey and Tommy Lee Jones? You get the most notable entry in his badass resume, Under Siege. Is it enough to measure up to the likes of Arnold, Stallone, or JCVD? Check out the podcast to find out what we think.
KUMITE! KUMITE! For anyone who grew up in the 80s or 90s, Bloodsport is the best-known movie starring a man best-known for his incredibly limber legs, Jean-Claude Van Damme. Also starring Bolo Yeung as the man with the world’s largest pecs, it’s a movie that we both love and fear. Take a journey to Kowloon (seriously!) with us as we break down this classic badass movie from our childhoods.
The Return of the Badasses series continues with 1986’s Cobra, Sylvester Stallone’s showcase of what makes a true badass. What are those things? Well, get yourself a pair of mirrored aviators and an automatic weapon with a laser scope, eat your pizza a quarter-slice at a time, store your gun cleaning kit at the back of your fridge inside an empty egg carton and you’ll be a good way toward understanding. Check out the podcast to find out what else Sylvester recommends.
It’s been thirty years since Terminator 2: Judgement Day hit the theaters and instantly became one of the greatest movie sequels of all time, and it’s been four years since we reviewed it. We figure it’s time to dust off that old podcast, shine it up, and re-release it to celebrate the milestone. Join us for our review of this classic.
A big, Arnold-sized shout out to epicmouthful for commissioning the Predator podcast. It might just be the perfect action movie, with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers muscling their way through the jungle, toting vehicle-caliber weapons, trying to kill the alien that is hunting them. What else do you really need to say? Well, we talk for over an hour about it so if there is anything else, we probably say it.

This week on Bald Move Prestige, we’re covering a pivotal action-thriller that redefined the scope of action movies for years to come. That’s right, it’s The Bourne Identity starring Matt Damon, Franka Potente, Chris Cooper, Brian Cox, Julia Stiles, and Clive Owen.
The Russian import “Hardcore Henry”, directed by Ilya Naishuller and starring Sharlto Copley and Haley Bennett, is either some brilliant, imaginative, humorous, over the top action flick, or it is an over-long, boring, tedious, graphic waste of time that may or may not make you physically ill. Or maybe it’s both? Jim and A.Ron debate the film’s merits accordingly.
