This week we debate the Best Drama category and re-run our review of Arrival.
It’s almost time for our 6th annual Baldies Awards. To celebrate, we’re running back the past 5 years of the Baldies to pick an ultimate winner; a Baldy of Baldies, if you will. Each episode features an intro where we debate a previous Baldies category to crown an overall winner and then our full spoiler review of a previous Best Movie Baldy category winner, culminating in our pick for the best winner from the past 5 years.
Jim and A.Ron went to see Arrival, starring Amy Addams, Jeremy Renner, and directed by Denis Villeneuve tonight. This is a very hard science fiction story that is told in a very slow, deliberate, and quiet way that might be off putting or tiresome to some. However it contains surprising depth, fascinating ideas, and a powerful emotional payload to those with sufficient patience and interest. Enjoy the spoiler free review and discussion of upcoming movies, but if you want to hear the full cosmic spoiler-filled thoughts you’ll have to be a Club Bald Move Member.
