Lunchtime! This week we talk a little about getting the first dose of COVID vaccine, the recent royal deaths (both rap and other), Jim’s new scale modeling interest and mistakes, and A.Ron’s experience camping with his son over the break, as well as answering a ton of listener questions.
Ask the average person what they think of when they hear the name Rambo and they’ll probably say something about an over-muscled rageaholic murdering dozens of people with weapons meant to be mounted on vehicles. Even if they know better, they’ll probably agree that this first movie in the franchise is called “Rambo”. Neither of those things is entirely accurate, so we’re setting the record straight in a podcast covering one of Sylvester Stallone’s best movies.
This week we conclude season 1 of For All Mankind, A.Ron dives into the next 2 episodes of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Jim has finished Ted Lasso, and A.Ron has finished Difficult People.
First run movies are back with the next installment of the titans series which desperately wants to be Pacific Rim. Does it live up to the pedigree it inspired? Well, the monster fights are good, but we really need to talk about the rest of it. Join us for the spoiler-free podcast if you’re not a club member or Patreon supporter or enjoy the full podcast with our complete thoughts if you are.
The mid-season finale isn’t perfect but it’s good enough to keep us entertained and get us thinking about what comes next for the nuke theory and our extremely vulnerable communities. Join us for the podcast.
Road to Perdition is the only movie we could think of that features Tom Hanks as anything other than a wholesome heroic type. It turns out he’s an honest-to-goodness actor and he can absolutely pull off the Irish gangster dead set on avenging his murdered family, especially when he’s sharing the screen with other talented actors such as Paul Newman and Daniel Craig. Who knew!
We finally understand why Dr. Dude has been so hard to read. In retrospect, it should have been obvious but all these damned mask metaphors are confusing the issue!
Join us for a discussion about teenage trauma and angst filtered through Bobby Cannavale playing an accidental pedo and Paul Giamatti getting pile drived into the grass by a 15 year old. Thanks again to Dave from California for commissioning this podcast.
Lunchtime! This week we take the dad joke quiz, A.Ron gives an update after getting the COVID vaccine and then talks about dark sky parks and camping, and we answer a lot of TV questions.
As usual, we answer a bunch of live voicemails from the listeners on this week’s feedback episode. We record the podcast live on Twitch.tv/baldmove each Tuesday at 1pm EST and stream our stereo.com/baldmove call-in voicemail show immediately afterward. Join the livestream to submit your questions and comments in your own voice!
