The Artemis was built on rules. Tonight they’re getting broken. Jim and A.Ron dive into the overlooked 2018 action/sci-fi thriller at the recommendation of their producer Talitha. The three of them will discuss the highs and lows of this hidden gem. Between the star-studded cast, amazing design, and tight script, there’s a whole underworld to uncover behind the doors of The Artemis.
Spaceballs holds a special place in comedy and sci-fi cinema. The iconic lines and legendary performances are still so quotable. But does the movie as a whole hold up? Jim and A.Ron are here to find out. One thing is for sure, it’s got the same level of sanity as the current Star Wars sequels.
Starship Troopers is the pulpy, sci-fi, satire that tried so hard to be a commentary that it seemed to miss its own point. From Paul Verhoeven, the director behind RoboCop (1987) and Total Recall (1990), comes a movie about bugs and fascism. Between the CGI and blatant metaphors, Jim and A.Ron explore the guts and glory of this weird adaptation.
Who you gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS! (I know you said it in your head.) Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Harold Ramis are here to bust. Jim and A.Ron check out the horror comedy that has spawned millions of Halloween costumes. The guys geek out over the tactical tech. Does the movie hold up to the hype? Jim’s got a hot take on why it might.
Continuing the Bald Move Christmas season is Love Actually (2003) and three more drinks from the Advent Calendar! This movie was written and directed by Richard Curtis, the one British director you’ve definitely heard of. Jim finds this movie to be indefensibly bad. A.Ron steps in to defend parts of it. Just parts. Join Jim and A.Ron and their unrefined palettes as they talk about what love is actually.
John Woo came out of retirement to deliver this Christmas gift. We hope he kept the gift receipt. It’s not the follow up to Violent Night (2022) Jim and A.Ron were hoping for. Joel Kinnaman is a treat, but it’s a rough ride. Jim has a solution to fix this movie.
Shaft is a first time watch for both Jim and A.Ron, and they loved it! Directed by Gordon Parks and starring Richard Roundtree, this movie sports killer dialogue, an Oscar-nominated soundtrack, and iconic performances. Roundtree is now being considered for the Bald Move Badass list!
The snake is swallowing its own tail. Loki season 2 has come to an end, does it satisfy the sci-fi nerds Jim and A.Ron? Does the emotion connect to the action? Is it a truly perfect parallel to the very first Thor movie? Whether or not this is where we leave the god of mischief, this season gave us a great story for one of our favorite Marvel characters.
Science fiction is a widely read and respected genre, ok?! And the show is excelling at embodying some of those sci-fi tropes you know and hopefully love.
