Bald Movies – Hard Boiled (1992) LIVE WATCH

Special thanks to Ajas, who commissioned a very special project; our first commissioned Live Watch!  If you don’t know, a Live Watch is where we watch a show and record commentary for it, which you can sync up to watch with us at home with your own personal copy.  And this movie is one of the craziest, over the top action films of all time. A John Woo picture, starring Chow Yun-fat, it features a hard-boiled detective desperate to put an end to the violent gang of gun runners who murdered his partner. Boasting an improbably number of bird and bullets, and featuring stunts that are just slightly less lethal than filming actual gunplay, the plot makes no sense but the gonzo nature of the film more than makes up for it. You thought Jason Statham’s baby routine in Fate of the Furious was crazy?  You haven’t seen nothing!

Star Wars Holiday Special – LIVEWATCH!

That’s right, you saw the title.  For this years Merry Culkin Keatmas grand finale, we watch the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special.  Thrill as the Wookie homeworld of Kashyyyk is blockaided by sinister Imperial forces that stand between Chewbacca and his family celebrating Life Day.  Honestly, that description I just typed is 1000% cooler than the awful reality; Star Wars providing a thin vinear attempting to cover that most awful of television traditions; the variety show.

Jack Frost (1998) – LIVEWATCH

The first present of our Merry Culkin Keatmas Christmas celebration has been opened!  Sit back and sync up our Live Watch commentary with your copy of the ill conceived and ill fated 1998 Michael Keaton / horrifying snowman puppet / CGI monstrosity Jack Frost!  See if you can spot the Robert Baratheon cameo before we do!  Can you solve the mystery of the woman who against all evidence is not actually Elizabeth Shue?  Thrill to us trying to decipher the dialog of Charlie “the Brain” Frost’s marble-mouthed performance.  And have your heart warmed by a story featuring a boy who loses his father on Christmas — TWICE! — while we play to Grinch who picks the film apart!  And if Live Watches aren’t your thing, wait until Wednesday, when we release a podcast where we recap what we learned and took away from old Jack.
