Phantom Thread (2017)

I was honestly nervous about this one. It’s supposedly going to be Daniel Day-Lewis’ final film and I’d heard mixed reviews before checking it out. It’s also a movie about the stuffiest of dressmakers which is paced very… precisely. However, thanks mostly to a few incredible performances, it held my interest long enough to get to the moments that set this movie apart. There are some serious spoilers for those moments though so watch the movie, then come back and give our podcast a listen if you’re so inclined.

The Bourne Identity (2002)

This week on Bald Move Prestige, we’re covering a pivotal action-thriller that redefined the scope of action movies for years to come. That’s right, it’s The Bourne Identity starring Matt Damon, Franka Potente, Chris Cooper, Brian Cox, Julia Stiles, and Clive Owen.

A Knight’s Tale (2001)

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.

Rain Man (1988)

Tom Cruise has a problem. His imported car flipping business is failing and he just found out that he has a secret brother who is an autistic savant. But those aren’t his problems. His problem is that he’s an asshole. But there’s a cure for that and it’s a movie called Rain Man. Join us for a discussion of this critically acclaimed classic film to hear what we think of it 30 years later.

The Verdict (1982)

The Verdict is a movie about a medical malpractice lawsuit that marks a milestone in Paul Newman’s career. Join us for a discussion of this deceptively good film that turns the charismatic leading man into a sad, old, washed up lawyer trying, and perhaps succeeding, to rekindle his life.

Amadeus (1984)

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.

Basic Instinct (1992)

We were under the mistaken impression that Basic Instinct was a Prestige film, because neither of us had seen it. What we got was a softcore, movie-length episode of Red Shoe Diaries directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone. Whether it’s thrilling satire or a satirical thriller, we certainly had quite a bit of fun with it
