Jim and I saw Zombieland: Double Tap tonight, and we are prepared to give it a triple, quad, quint, or whatever amount of Tap required to put this series down for good, because baby… it’s gone bad. We are pretty big fans of the original Zombieland, but it turns out they used up all the imagination, fun, and clever jokes in the first one. I will say that the house I saw the movie in was having a good time, and laughing at/with the movie, and at time of writing it’s boasting a pretty respectable Rotten Tomato score. Maybe there’s something fun here we’re missing? But we recommend you miss it too.
Jim and A.Ron are watching HBO’s Watchmen! They discuss their thoughts, fears, and anticipation about this highly anticipated upcoming series.
Jim and A.Ron watched Netflix’s El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. We follow Jesse as he escapes from the nazi compound, and fondly remember a time when nazism in America seemed preposterous. They enjoyed the movie overall, and are always glad to be back in the ABQ. Watch the podcast being recorded here: Leave Us A…

Jim and I went to see the Joker tonight, and it was intense, challenging, but also beautiful and engrossing look at mental illness and the sicknesses at the heart of our society. Director Todd Phillips gives us a plausible, believable, and terrifying Joker to inhabit a world that is set in a hazy late 70s period but…
A.Ron and Jim are primed and ready for season four of USA’s Mr. Robot. Check back with us next week for our full coverage podcast on the Mr. Robot premiere!
In the latest Empire Business installment, Jim and A.Ron talk about the future of commissioned podcasts.
Jim and I went to the outer reaches of the solar system with Ad Astra, the paradoxically slow moving, absorbing, thoughtful, but action packed sci-fi film starring Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones. We spend the better part of an hour talking about what we thought the film was about, and the strange, ultra-realistic yet dreamy quality to a lot of the proceedings. I think we both admired the film more than loved it, but I at least wouldn’t be surprised if further contemplation (and watches) revealed some hidden depths.
A.Ron and Cecily have seen the latest from Baron Julian Fellowes, Downton Abbey the movie. We had a grand time catching up with the family, and we even met some new members. The King and Queen are coming to stay, which means there’s lots to do!
We’ve been through another big season of Club Bald Move sales so it’s time, once again, to update you all on how it’s going.
