Spider-man: No Way Home (2021)

We wondered how a spider-man movie could justify a two-and-a-half hour runtime. Well, turns out if you sprinkle in enough characters, enough nostalgia, and enough jokes, then top it with a healthy dose of multi-verse, it all works itself out. Maybe multi-verse is what Eternals was missing? Join us for the podcast to hear what we thought of Marvel’s latest Spider-man movie.

True Romance (1993)

This week we’ve got a special treat thanks to our commissioner, Dena. It’s one of the handful of movies that Quentin Tarantino wrote, but didn’t direct. What do Tarantino’s unique sensibilities look like when filtered through another director? Find out with us on the True Romance podcast. You can get your very own custom commissioned…

Eternals (2021)

Marvel’s latest deep cut superhero origin story movie tries to do too much with too little and ends up disappointing. There’s too much runtime with not enough plot. There are too many characters with not enough development. There are too many scenes with not enough light.

The Guest (2014)

The Guest is nothing like the movie I thought it’d be. It’s one of those movies where the name is so generically boring that someone asks you “Have you seen The Guest?” and you respond “Sure”, thinking you’ve seen it but you’re actually thinking of The Others, The Nun, The Grudge, The Delivery, or The . I actually just made up those last two, that’s how boring the title of this movie is. The premise isn’t that exciting either. A man shows up at a house claiming to be a friend of their son who died in war, but he’s weird.

That said, this movie is way more fun than the title or the premise would indicate. When it breaks the sidewalls of its mediocre horror mold and spills messily out into other genres, it becomes a ton of fun. Dan Stevens and Maika Monroe are excellent as well.

Thanks to Maggie for commissioning this unique movie. Join us on the podcast for our full review.

Dune (2021)

Well, the verdict is in from the USofA (as it already has been from the rest of the world) and Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Dune appears to work, even on skeptics like Jim who have been resistant to it’s Lynch-tainted charms for decades. But it is any wonder? When a movie looks this good and displays such an overwhelming amount of creativity, you just can’t help but enjoy it.

Bald Move Pulp - No Time To Die (2021)

The final chapter of Daniel Craig’s story as James Bond has finally been written and we’re honestly pretty relieved. We’ve mostly enjoyed the journey, and find this movie to be one of the more enjoyable parts of it, but the darker tone of the Craig Bond movies has taken its toll and we’re ready for a fresh new look at James Bond. Join us for our discussion of No Time To Die.

The Many Saints of Newark (2021)

The Many Saints of Newark exists as several movies in one, trying to be something more than just a Sopranos prequel, and ultimately doesn’t excel at anything except casting. If you’re a die-hard fan of The Sopranos, you’ll definitely want to check it out, as it sheds new light on the events and relationships of the series. If you’re a fan of gangster movies, you might want to check it out after you’ve watched all of the many other, much better gangster movies. If you’re neither, why are you even here?

The Suicide Squad (2021)

What a difference a word, and one excellent writer / director, makes! The Suicide Squad is a complete 360 from the steaming pile of garbage that was Suicide Squad. It’s fun, action-packed, ultra-violent and everything we would hope to see from the evolution of subversive superhero movies.

Bald Move Pulp - Black Widow (2021)

We’ve seen the only MCU movie about an Avenger to be posthumously titled with just their name, no subtitles, and we’re here to say that it’s still worth watching. Despite it being an origin story (of sorts) for an already-dead character and having a few third-act question marks, it manages to deliver on comedy, heart, thrills, and spectacle you want from a mainline Marvel hero story.
