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.
There’s so much to talk about in today’s episode! Over the holidays we both dodged a pre-order bullet by waiting on Cyberpunk 2077 so we decided to talk about the pre-order mentality. Then we move on to TV and talk about more of The Good Lord Bird, Jim’s experience re-watching ALL of Seinfeld – especially the disappointing way the finale was aired, A.Ron’s thoughts on season 1 of The Sopranos and Ted Lasso, then finish up with our teleparty of Free Fire.
It’s almost time for our 6th annual Baldies Awards. In order to celebrate, we’re running back the past 5 years of the Baldies to pick an ultimate winner; a Baldy of Baldies, if you will. Each episode features an intro where we debate a previous Baldies category to crown an overall winner and then our full spoiler review of a previous Best Movie Baldy category winner, culminating in our pick for the best winner from the past 5 years.
This week we debate the Best Comedy category and re-run our Dunkirk review.
What would Christmas be without a heartfelt message of cheer and togetherness? Elf starts out on a sad and lonely note, but by the end our spirits are lifted. Hopefully we accomplished the same this Christmas season with our podcasts. Thank you to everyone who has joined us for these past few weeks of celebration. Enjoy the final podcast of the season, and we’ll see you next year!
Cast Away defined the survival genre when it came out in 2000 and it’s back again on its 20th anniversary to cap off the year of pure survival, 2020. Join us for the podcast as we discuss the themes of hope, scenes we can only watch through our fingers, and, of course, WILLLLSOOOONNN.
This month’s Patron edition of “Off the Clock” isn’t as much about the TV and movies we’ve been watching as it is about what we’ve been reading and watching on YouTube.
A.Ron’s discussion of Mank tells the story of the writing of Citizen Kane. Jim follows up with another Blake Crouch novel, Dark Matter. Then A.Ron talks about his survivalist YouTube obsession, Joe Robinet. And we close it out with a discussion of the shows we wanted to talk more about this year and those we’re glad we didn’t bother with.
Today is the 25th anniversary of an absolute classic crime drama, Heat. If we hadn’t already reviewed it we probably would take the opportunity to do so right now. However, thanks to the generosity of one of our most loyal listeners, Freddy C, you can hear what we thought of it circa Feb. 2018. Thanks again for the commission, Freddy, and everyone else, enjoy the re-release of Heat.
The second movie in our Christmas 2020 lineup isn’t traditionally considered a Christmas movie but once you hear our arguments for why it most certainly is, we think you’ll agree. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on the creation of modern buddy cop tropes, the bizarre music choices, (can a saxophone ever be used non-sexually) and party nog at your daughter’s funeral.
Welcome to the first Christmas movie of the 2020 holiday season, The Holiday! It features some major starpower, the likes of Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, and Jack Black. Yes, it’s a romantic comedy but you knew we had to do one eventually. There are just SO MANY rom-com Christmas movies out there and we can’t cover JUST the badass classics like Die Hard and Rocky IV! And if there was ever a season for variety, this is the one. COVID has been hard on all of us, so join us for this mostly-wholesome, very sappy, but also highly-enjoyable holiday treat.
Over the years there have been many film adaptations of Stephen King’s work. Today we’re covering one of the finest. Starring Kathy Bates and James Caan, Misery is the story of fandom gone wrong. Or maybe it’s an allegory for over-zealous editors. Or it could be an author’s struggle with drug addiction and the backlash from fans when their writing ventures beyond a specific genre. Join us on the podcast as we debate this question and discuss what makes Misery so great.
