The Departed (2006)

The Departed is one of the Scorsese movies that A.Ron and I most overlooked on first viewing. I had some inkling that it was good, but I couldn’t say why. After watching it 15 years later, we both got it. There’s a complex game of cat and mouse hidden under all those Boston accents and, despite clocking in at over 2.5 hours, it maintains the tension throughout. Join us on the podcast for a discussion of The Departed.

The Bourne Identity (2002)

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.

Suburbicon (2017)

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?

Bald Move Pulp - Jason Bourne (2016)

Jim and A.Ron have seen the latest film in Matt Damon’s action spy thriller franchise, Jason Bourne, and find it reasonably Bourney, but missing a lot of the improvisational, desperate charm of the earlier installments, and missing a lot of its heart. Please enjoy our spoiler free review of the movie and discussion of the trailers we saw for upcoming fall releases, but if you want to hear our detailed spoiler-filled take on the movie, you’ll have to be a Club Bald Move Member!

Bald Move Prestige - Saving Private Ryan (1998)

Mr. Justin “Hatorian” K. won a Bald Move fantasy football league, and this was his reward; the selection of the modern classic war movie, “Saving Private Ryan”. Directed by Steven Spielberg, and starring every man in Hollywood (Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Vin Diesel, Bryan Cranston, NATHAN FILLION, Paul Giamatti, among others), it’s a pitiless look into the hell that is war. It is also moving, heroic, complex tale of brotherhood, bravery, cowardice, and loss. It’s a powerful film that you really must see before partaking of the podcast, but if you’ve already stormed the beaches of Normandy with Capt. Miller and company, please enjoy the podcast.

The Martian (2015)

Jim and A.Ron saw Ridley Scott’s “The Martian” last night, starring Matt Damon, and have a lot to say about it. Note, the first part of the podcast is spoiler free, but then when we say we’re about to spoil things, that’s your cue to get out while the getting is good. Along the way, we talk about the trailers we saw for The Revenant, The Big Short, Joy, and Concussion.
