Bald Move Pulp - National Treasure (2004)

Conspiracy theorists rejoice, we’re covering your favorite movie. Everyone else, we know it’s in your top ten, don’t deny it. It’s got everything: clues, conspiracy, and the most toned-down Nic Cage performance on record. With the breakneck speed plot points you don’t have time to ask, “Does this actually make sense?” It’s good fun for all ages, which you don’t see a lot of anymore, so props to this movie. If you’re not enjoying it, you’re thinking too hard. Stop it!
What are you waiting for? Listen in on our discussion on America’s National Treasure, Nic Cage, in the movie National Treasure.

Gladiator (2000)

Put your history books away and get ready for a tour of the highlights for the Roman Empire’s armor, skyline, and gladiator fights. Join us as we explore Gladiator’s plot, VFX, and acting and discuss what does and does not hold up two decades later. For a movie that was green lit with only 30 pages of written script and had the unfortunate death of an actor during production, Ridley Scott pulls together an epic tale of courage and revenge. Are you not entertained? 

The Batman (2022)

The Batman is the darkest take on a Batman movie yet. It’s also a familiar Batman story, with some minor updates and a few twists. It has an excellent cast, (yes, Robert Pattinson is a good Batman) a memorable score, and it looks fantastic. Does all this add up to a great Batman movie? Check out the podcast to find out. If you’re a Club Bald Move member stick around for the full spoilers after the trailer talk.

Uncharted (2022)

Uncharted is getting pretty awful reviews and we think we know why. Mark Wahlberg. He’s just a bad Sully and doesn’t seem particularly interested in being in what is an otherwise competent National Treasure-style action movie. It feels very similar to the series of games and the set pieces were enjoyable enough to keep us engaged, with maybe one exception. Join us for the podcast to hear our full spoiler-free thoughts and then, if you’re a Club Bald Move member, continue into the spoiler section at the end.

Killjoy (2000)

We went into Killjoy nearly blind but podcast commissioner Doug assured us that it was bad enough to wrap back around to good. Turns out Doug was exactly right. The creators chose the homeopathic approach to budgeting, mixing no more than 1 part money to every 100 parts runtime. Despite that, we enjoyed our time with it. Join us for the podcast to find out exactly why.

Jurassic Park (1993)

We have a new commissioned podcast from bald move fan Sheldon… it’s Jurassic Park! Do the effects hold up? Are the kids annoying? What happened to the shaving cream can full of dino embryos? What would this movie look like with Jim Carrey in the role of Dr. Ian Malcolm? We ponder all these and more as we gaze into the amber orb of nostalgia that is Jurassic Park.
