Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory turned 50 this week so we’re re-releasing our podcast from 4 years ago as a celebration of this subversive dark comedy, made even darker the more you think about it. Pop a gobstopper, take a trip down the chocolate river, and enjoy the podcast.
Well, The Nexus Event didn’t deliver on the hopes we had for it to retroactively make the last episode more interesting, but it did deliver some big surprises of its own. We’re all set up for next week to be big. Sound familiar? Maybe we’re stuck in a time loop. Join us for the podcast to hear our full thoughts on Loki episode 4.
A big, Arnold-sized shout out to epicmouthful for commissioning the Predator podcast. It might just be the perfect action movie, with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers muscling their way through the jungle, toting vehicle-caliber weapons, trying to kill the alien that is hunting them. What else do you really need to say? Well, we talk for over an hour about it so if there is anything else, we probably say it.

Oh man, it’s time for another round of Fast and Furious with F9: The Fast Saga. You already know what you’re in for if you’ve seen recent movies in the franchise but we’re here to say that this movie doesn’t disappoint.
The third episode of Loki can easily be seen as a disappointment when taken alone. Our bet is that there’s some serious subterfuge happening though, and when taken in tandem with the next episode (or possibly the rest of the season) it will all be a lot more satisfying. Join us for the podcast to hear our full spoiler review.
The Variant is revealed (several times, actually) in the second episode of Loki, and it looks like we’ve got more time-traveling in our future (or past). Join us for a discussion of time-travel ethics, anti-heroes, and a pretty solid theory about Steve Rogers’ deal with the TVA.
We’ve seen the first episode of the trickster god’s new Disney+ series and we’re here to say that it’s off to a good start. Join us each Wednesday for our instant take podcast covering what’s shaping up to be a series of timey wimey morality problems to solve; just the kinda stuff we like.
We’re finally seeing a movie with the theater crowd for the first time since the pandemic started and it’s the sequel to a really enjoyable movie from 2018, A Quiet Place Part II. This time, John Krasinski is both writing and directing. How does that work out for the movie? Well, join us for the non-spoiler podcast to find out, then stick around after the trailer talk if you’re a club member for the deep dive into the spoilers.
You hear the concept for Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead”, a heist movie set in Las Vegas during the zombie apocalypse, and you can’t help but think it’s a great idea. Two great flavors that go great together. Turns out it is, but making the resulting movie enjoyable requires a lot more than just a great hook. Join two other flavors that go great together, Jim and special guest Jason from podcastica.com / The Walking Dead ‘Cast, to find out where things went wrong, and what went right in Army of the Dead.
Do you like blood and gore? Do you enjoy self-aware video game nods? Do you like dead fish main characters that are overshadowed by the great action scenes that are the REAL reason you went to the theater? Well then, let me tell you about a movie called Mortal Kombat. We’ve seen the latest entry in the Mortal Kombat film franchise and it was pretty much everything we wanted. Join us for the podcast to hear our non-spoiler review as well as some trailer talk and, if you’re a Club Bald Move member or Patreon supporter, stick around for the full spoiler review.
