Moneyball is our Prestige movie this week thanks to it being the 10th anniversary of its release as well as a pretty solid movie about a subject that most movies wouldn’t dare approach. Join us for a discussion about Jonah Hill, Brad Pitt, and the statistical analysis that changed baseball.
Forrest Gump is an artifact of a more innocent age; a time before Tom Hanks learned to make fire. Before Robin Wright made binge-watching a lifestyle. Before Hollywood acknowledged that Pulp Fiction had changed the way audiences engaged with movies. Join us for the podcast to take a trip back in time and find out if this Academy darling still holds up.
Jim and A.Ron went to see Bladerunner 2049 tonight, what did they think? A.Ron thinks it’s amazing, absorbing, and needs multiple viewings to unravel all of it’s mysteries, while Jim thinks the same but wishes they’d cut about 20 minutes of Gosling walking down sidewalks and starring off into the distance. And that’s probably fair, but then again a somewhat stately, almost glacial pace is kind of a Bladerunner hallmark, no? Enjoy our spoiler free review, and discussion of upcoming movies for free, but if you want to hear our in depth thoughts on the movie, you’ll have to be a Club Member!
This was a long time coming. Jim has avoided seeing this movie for going on 30 years. Today, he has no where to run, no where to hide. He’s locked in a steel cage match with “The Princess Bride”, directed by Rob Reiner and based on the novel of the same name by William Goldman. Confronted by the beautiful faces of Cary Elwes and Robin Wright, the absurdist comedy of Miracle Max, how will he react to this crazy mashup of farce, swashbuckling, and heart?
