It’s the 20th anniversary of Donnie Darko, the cult classic that introduced Jake Gyllenhaal to dark and disturbed teenagers across the nation. Join us for the re-release of our 2016 podcast covering this twisted sci-fi tale.
Oh boy… What can I say about this week’s big anniversary that won’t piss off the general public who apparently respects and admires the works of David Lynch? Well, I can say that we’re re-releasing our podcast on Mulholland Drive for its 20th anniversary. I can also say that the opinions expressed in the podcast are now 5 years old and I’ve seen exactly 1 David Lynch movie that I’ve enjoyed in that time.
But hey, A.Ron’s here too, and he loved it. From the weird dumpster monsters to the strange musical interludes, he’s down to clown on any wavelength Lynch chooses to broadcast. At least half the podcast will be from that perspective.
So enjoy this now-20-year-old movie and what we had to say about it 5 years ago.
It’s the 20th anniversary of Training Day and while we had no fewer than 3 big anniversaries this week, we managed to get to them all in due time. This is the only role that Denzel Washington has won an academy award in a leading role for, which seems crazy, I know! But it’s pretty well-deserved as he and Ethan Hawke carry this movie. Without either of these performances, the movie wouldn’t work. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on this early 2000s dirty cop drama.
Join us for the 20th anniversary of Baz Luhrmann’s over-the-top musical about truth, beauty, freedom, and, above all else, love.
Today we’re celebrating the 20th anniversary of A Knight’s Tale. Even if you’re not a fan of romantic comedies, you’ll absolutely love the other parts of this movie. It contains more star power than any movie has a right to, with the likes of Heath Ledger, Paul Bettany, Alan Tudyk, and Mark Addy, and certain unforgettable someone from Breaking Bad.
Thank you to Dr. Jon for commissioning this podcast. How could we cover a movie of this epic scale without a podcast of equally-epic runtime? Grab a pipeful of Old Toby, kick back, and join us for this 2+ hour podcast for discussion of the Tolkien lore, behind-the-scenes information, and a whole bunch of us marveling at the general impossibility of a making a movie like this.

Jim and A.Ron discuss Cameron Crowe’s 2001 movie, Vanilla Sky. It was a shot-for-shot remake of the original Spanish-language movie, that doesn’t deserve it’s low rating. They discuss the many possibilities throughout the cleverly hidden sci-fi aspects and the off-beat soundtrack.
Bald Move Prestige is where the best of the best come to shine. In the Prestige podcast, we talk about serious dramas, excellence in filmmaking, and everything in between; on television or on the big screen. Prestige doesn’t cover sci-fi, but if that is your thing, you might be looking for Bald Move Pulp.
Jim and A.Ron tackle yet another community podcast commission, this time for the David Lynch movie, “Mulholland Drive”. Things get weird as we experience every human emotion possible and struggle to figure out what the hell just happened. Just know that this podcast is not meant to be interpreted literally, but to be emotionally intuited experientially.
Special thanks to the crew who combined their wallets, Captain Planet style, and summoned this podcast; Anthony B, Mike T, Davey Mac, Ryan Q, Rachael H, galicia73, Fidoz,
Jefferson B, hellogoodbye9, cocoa2mc, Martin K , Michael T, Joby M, and Walker W. Thanks guys and gals, we couldn’t do it without you!
Special thanks to Dr. Brandon Devito for once again commissioning another great movie for us to gab about, this time the amazingly deep 2001 sci-fi/noodle bender, “Donnie Darko”. Or… is it that deep? Maybe it really is just totally straightforward, but so batcrap crazy you’re just not prepared to deal with it’s frankness? In this podcast, we sort the Manipulated Dead from the Manipulated Living, as we try to get the Artifact back to the Tangent Universe before it’s too late. We think.
