We saw the new action spy thriller Atomic Blonde tonight, starring Charlize Theron and James McAvoy. We give universal praise to the action and the stars for delivering great performances and believable stunt work. The visual flair of the movie is incredible too. But, we’re just not sure about the plot. We might be having a slow night, but we’re not sure everyone’s motivations and spy stuff work out. And, I’m at least a little bummed that this movie was more gritty and introspective and less the fun romp I was expecting. Still, with stunt work nestled comfortably between the grounded pummeling of The Bourne Identity and the over the top wet work of John Wick, you owe it to yourself to see it and form your own opinion.
Jim and A.Ron took in the psychological thriller “10 Cloverfield Lane”, and have a lot to say about the performances, the plot, and the trailers previewing movies we may or may not be interested in. The movie is directed by talented rookie Dan Trachtenberg, and stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman, and John Gallagher Jr, and is being called the “spiritual successor” to the original J.J. Abrams joint, “Cloverfield”, whatever the hell that means. Everyone can enjoy the non-spoiler reviews, but you’ll have to be a Club Bald Move member to hear the full podcast. We’ll be back in two weeks for the potential blockbuster/turd “Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice”!
