Blade Runner turned 40 today and to celebrate, we’re re-releasing our podcast from four years ago. Check out The Final Cut of Blade Runner (seriously, it’s the better version by far) then join us for the show.
The Thing turns 40 years old today. To celebrate, we’re re-releasing our podcast from 2018. Remarkably, the cutting-edge-for-their-time practical effects still hold up, which is more than you can say for most movies of the era. Join us for the show to celebrate The Thing’s anniversary.
Bald Move Pulp is where you can get your fix of robots, aliens, action space adventures, and everything in between; on television or on the big screen. Pulp was not made for serious drama, if that’s your thing, you might be looking for Bald Move Prestige.
It has been 35 years since Hoosiers became the definitive Indiana basketball movie, and possibly one of the all-time great inspirational sports movies. Though we both were born and raised in Indiana, we somehow managed to miss this movie entirely. Join us for the podcast as we talk our way through our feelings about this beloved classic.
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.
It’s the 25th anniversary of That Thing You Do! It’s a whirlwind movie about the rise and fall of a fake 1950s pop band that popped right out of the Beatles mold. A bunch of young 90s names including Liv Tyler, Steve Zahn, Tom Everett Scott, and Charlize Theron are all wrangled by a very serious, but likeable Tom Hanks. We both love this movie and it’s a ton of fun so check out the podcast.
The Departed is one of the Scorsese movies that A.Ron and I most overlooked on first viewing. I had some inkling that it was good, but I couldn’t say why. After watching it 15 years later, we both got it. There’s a complex game of cat and mouse hidden under all those Boston accents and, despite clocking in at over 2.5 hours, it maintains the tension throughout. Join us on the podcast for a discussion of The Departed.
Moneyball is our Prestige movie this week thanks to it being the 10th anniversary of its release as well as a pretty solid movie about a subject that most movies wouldn’t dare approach. Join us for a discussion about Jonah Hill, Brad Pitt, and the statistical analysis that changed baseball.
