Bald Movies – Dunkirk (2017)

We’ve seen Christopher Nolan’s new film, the war epic Dunkirk, and found it hard to immediately react to. It’s a very visceral, claustrophobic, unflinching, and moving film, epic in scale, but equally effective in zooming in to focus on a small number of actual human beings to focus on and care about. It offers views of the best and worst of humanity, and constantly dares you to both judge and empathize with the men dealing death and narrowly avoiding it. Another fantastic film from Nolan.

Game of Thrones – 701 – Dragonstone

Jim and A.Ron consider the season opener of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Dragonstone”. Entire great houses fall, Queen Daenerys, lands on Westerosi shores, and still some fans considered this episode a dull affair! We talk about expectations, Arya’s brush with humanity, the Hound digging graves, Jaime’s odds for redemption, tons of listener feedback, and much more! And we’re not done. Stay tuned for Friday for our SpoiLORE edition!

If you’re a show-only watcher who doesn’t want any spoilers, you may find it best to just skip that part. Not afraid of spoilers? Need to catch up?

Bald Move TV – 2017 Emmy Nomination Reactions

Long time fans of Bald Move knows we don’t care much for most rewards shows, and thus don’t comment a lot on them. But sometimes, the best show on TV gets royally shafted on an award show that purports to recognize outstanding work in the medium, and we just got to take to the mics and talk about it. You might not like The Leftovers, but it’s so galling that it doesn’t even get a nomination for any major category, while stale farts like House of Cards gets lavished with actor, actress, series, supporting actor nominations… well, you can listen to us lose our ish about it for about an hour. And we get around to covering the other major nominations too.

Bald Movies – Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003)

Special thanks to our twin commissioners, Steven S. and Mozbeet for commissioning one of my very favorite films, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, directed by Peter Weir and based on the Patrick O’Brian series that is my very favorite books of all time. Thank god Jim thinks it’s awesome too, or there might have been bloodshed. We discuss the film’s historicity and verisimilitude, the unique relationship between Captain Jack and Doctor Maturin, life aboard an 19th century Man o’ War, and I make a pitch for reading the original novels towards the end. Thanks again Steven and Mozbeet, this was a real treat!

Bald Movies – Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

Hello, true believers! We have seen Spider-Man: Homecoming, and we pronounce it good. Really, really good. It’s kind of amazing how Marvel seems incapable of making anything less than a top level comic book film, and do enough with casting, set piece design, and slight tweaks to their formula to have even cynics like Jim wanting more. Like I said, it’s amazing. Spectacular, even. We talk briefly about the greatness of the film in a non-spoiler way, talk a bit about upcoming films, and then get down and dirty with Mr. Parker in the spoiler section. But! You’ll have to be a Club Member to get all that goodness. ‘Nuff said. Excelsior!
