Who you gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS! (I know you said it in your head.) Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Harold Ramis are here to bust. Jim and A.Ron check out the horror comedy that has spawned millions of Halloween costumes. The guys geek out over the tactical tech. Does the movie hold up to the hype? Jim’s got a hot take on why it might.
Scrooged is the movie that knocks the Christmas out of A.Ron. The movie is great, until it’s not. Bill Murray is the Scrooge figure working in the entertainment industry. There are great practical effects, real injuries, great cast, and one of Jim’s “favorite” actors. Is there enough Christmas magic to save this movie?
It’s a movie that is so Wes Anderson, you’ll be bathing in pastel colors and meta dialogue for the full 1 hour and 44 minute run. This movie will ask, but never answer, a handful of questions. Is this movie profound? Is the audience meant to understand it? What is that on Jason Schwartzman’s forehead?
The Grand Budapest hotel from film auteur Wes Anderson has more stars than the Big Dipper. With his distinctive style, Anderson’s film glows with humor and heartfelt moments. As Ralph Fiennes works his way through a murder-mystery plot, the characters will make you giggle and shed a few tears. So, guard your nose and check out this movie with us.
Thanks to our fan Brady, we’re talking about one of my favorites, Sofia Coppola’s 2003 tale of ennui and self-discovery, Lost in Translation. Come listen to me discuss the early beginnings of my ScarJo crush as well as what makes this movie so personally identifiable to me and to probably everyone.
We’re back with another movie. This time it’s Wes Anderson’s Sophomore effort, Rushmore. Written by Anderson and his frequent collaborator and childhood friend, Owen Wilson, it bears all the hallmarks of a Wes Anderson project, though it’s a bit less polished than his future films. Join us for the podcast to hear what we thought about this 22 year-old classic.
So Jim and I did this 24 hour Groundhog Day marathon on Groundhog Day, and ended up raising $10,205 for the homeless! You can watch the entire thing on YouTube if you’re so inclined, but if you want to know the highlights, listen to this podcast. We couldn’t be prouder of the Bald Move family. We truly felt like we really came together and did something special.
We’re watching the 1993 movie Groundhog Day for 24 hours, starting on February 2nd, 2018 @ 12:01AM EST.
