Bald Move Pulp - Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

Take a walk on the adventurous side as we revisit a staple of classic pulp movies. The dialogue crackles, the visuals stun, and Harrison Ford creates an icon of 20th century cinema. We have the behind-the-scenes of stunts and the story of Lucas and Spielberg’s fateful Hawaii trip. From the rolling boulder to the Ark wiping out the Third Reich, it’s a rip roaring time of good writing, great acting, and a score that soars.

Thank you to Bill Dodd for commissioning this episode!

The Lost Boys (1987) 35th Anniversary Rerelease

We’re rereleasing our episode on The Lost Boys (1987) in honor of the movie’s 35th anniversary!

Special thanks to Saylor from Santa Cruz, the latest Bald Move Fantasy Football champ to claim their prize for winning the league. Emerging from the pile victorious, he has selected the 1997 vampire flick, The Lost Boys. Helmed by Joel Schumacher and chocked equally full of cool and hilarious moments and extremely questionable decisions, the film manages to confound and delight. Why is 16 year old Corey Haim taking baths and being tucked into bed by his mother? Why is there a shirtless oiled up, muscle bound sax player? Why is Rob Lowe gazing seductively from Haim’s bedroom closet, and more importantly, why is Jim completely oblivious to his siren’s call? Is the grandpa a vampire or what? All these questions and more are explored in the depth to which they deserve.

Masters of the Universe (1987)

Wow, this is a bad movie. There’s almost nothing redeeming about it. It’s not even one of those “so bad it’s good” movies. It’s not badass, it’s just ass. Join us for an hour-long discussion of why this movie doesn’t work and whether Dolph Lundgren has what it takes to crack the upper echelons of our badass rankings.

Nope (2022)

Nope is the latest film from Jordan Peele, one of the few auteurs of modern cinema. This master of horror created another high-concept social commentary wrapped in exciting set pieces and sprinkled with comedy. Keke Palmer, Daniel Kaluuya, and Steven Yeun shine in a movie with so many twists and turns that the trailers could not spoil it. Looking for a movie that grabs your brain and won’t let go? Check out Nope.
We’ll see you soon for our next first run movie, Bullet Train.

Die Hard With a Vengeance (1995)

CHAMPION. CHARISMA. CHARACTER.
Today we’re focusing on “Charisma” with John McClane in the third movie of the Die Hard franchise. It’s not the perfect Die Hard movie, but it has Samuel L. Jackson who is perfect. It delivers on fun action set pieces, but does feature one of the most ridiculous “blown to safety” moments in cinema history rivaling only Indiana Jones. Find out some of the fun facts behind the casting of this movie and the other movies that got axed to make this one happen.
