Black Rain (1989)

1/16/2018
More
Special thanks to Sean Ray (previous commissioner of the Insidious series, and Blood Simple) for commissioning this late 80's Ridley Scott crime thriller, Black Rain. Michael Douglas plays a cop alongside Andy Garcia that gets mixed up in a gang war between the Yakuza and a rival upstart over counterfeit US currency. The film explores the intercultural exchange as Douglas's corrupt and brash NYC cop runs into the brick wall of Japanese police decorum and honor, but how successful it is in...

The Post (2017)

1/11/2018
More
We saw The Post tonight, the star-studded retelling of The Washington Post's decision to publish the Pentagon Papers, the internal history commissioned by the Dept. of Defense that detailed the long list of failures in America's involvement politically and militarily in Vietnam, risking financial ruin and jail time. Told from the perspective of the owner of the Post, Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep), and her editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks), as they wrestle with their own cozy relationships...

Dr. Strangelove (1964)

1/9/2018
More
Today's commissioned podcast is one for the pantheon, Stanley Kubrick's 1964 masterpiece of satire, Dr. Strangelove. Kubrick set out to make a nuclear thriller, but instead decided to lean heavily into the existential absurdism that was and still is the world's nuclear weapon deterrent, mutual assured destruction. Hey, it's worked for sixty years, let's keep the streak going! Special thanks to our committee of commissioners, "Breaking Bad Fest" Jennie, Gulleen, Manoj, Flash Gordon, Anthony,...

The Last Jedi Rewatch

1/5/2018
More
A.Ron went back and saw the newest Star Wars on his holiday break, and has a lot more to say. He turns to life long friend and fellow fan Jim Jones to help him talk through is feelings about the film, and his fears for the future of the franchise. Maybe you feel me, maybe you don't, but I hope you all accept it as my honest analysis of the film. If you want to hear our first impressions, you can get them here.

Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (2017)

12/14/2017
More
Jim and I have seen Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi: No More Subtitles, We Promise, and surprise, surprise! One of us like it and one of us wanted to like it more than they actually felt the love. On the other hand, the film is receiving almost universal praise so don't let that dissuade you from seeing and enjoying The Last Jedi. Haha, as if wild falthiers could drag anyone away from seeing a new Star Wars.

The Disaster Artist (2017)

12/7/2017
More
We have seen The Disaster Artist, the behind the scenes look at the creation of The Room, which is quite possibly the worst film ever made. Based on the book of the same name, the brothers Franco play Tommy and Greg in a way that manages to feel honest, sympathetic, and most of all very funny. It is frustrating that there is so little there, there. There is no big revealing answers that make any sense about the deeply weird and enigmatic Tommy, and the friendship between him and Greg also...

Justice League (2017)

11/16/2017
More
Cecily and A.Ron discuss the latest DC comic book movie attempt, and one with a lot of hopes riding on it, Justice League. It's a real who's who of comic book movies, does it manage to build on the momentum of the very good Wonder Woman, or is this another Superman vs Batman level disappointment? Well, we'd have to say it falls right in between those two extremes. It's not great, but it's also not terrible, and does just enough to hopefully give DC some room to breathe and establish these...

Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

11/9/2017
More
A.Ron and Jim saw the most recent film adaptation of the Agatha Christie mystery classic, Murder on the Orient Express. Directed and starring Kenneth Branagh, as well as a baker's dozen other stars, is lush and lavish and maybe missing a few pieces it needs to be assembled into a fully functional whole? It's like an Ikea bookshelf with a few screws and dowel rods missing, is what we're saying. We discuss our general, non-spoiler thoughts before talking about upcoming films, before getting...

Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

11/8/2017
More
Once again commissioner Fernando Rodriguez (you may better know him as FernNYC17 on our forums) steps up with a choice selection, this time the oft maligned Return of the Jedi. Often dismissed as derivative or childish when compared to A New Hope or The Empire Strikes Back respectively, we have nothing but love for the climax of the story of Skywalker. It's got the best space battle, the best lightsabre battle, and the best puppets in all of Star Wars. The Special Edition changes? Not so...

Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

11/2/2017
More
Jim and A.Ron have seen Thor: Ragnarok and let us be the millionth person to tell you that it is fun and colorful. There isn't much else there, but, you know, but director Taika Waititi ensured that it's really fun and really colorful. It asks some big questions about Thor, and Odin, and even the Hulk, but isn't really interested in the answers. It's not a bad thing, because it is really, really fun. Cate Blanchett is clearly enjoying being a vampy big bad with a flair for irony and the...

Suburbicon (2017)

10/30/2017
More
A.Ron and Cecily went to do a make up review of the Coen Brothers written, George Clooney directed film Suburbicon, and it's not great, Bob. Cecily saw some interesting things with the social commentary and A.Ron is in agreement that the movie was good looking and well acted, but ultimately the movie is pointless, depressing, and disappointing. We also discuss trailers like we do, but if you want to hear the full spoilers review of the film, you'll have to be a Club Member. Why not join...

Suburbipology – Suburbicon Podcast Delayed Until Monday

10/27/2017
More
A funny thing happened on the way to the movies tonight. My trusty yet elderly steed, my Pontiac Vibe, suffered a brake failure, scared the crap out of me, and long story short, caused me to miss tonight's scheduled movie, Suburbicon. I'm really sorry, towards the top of my chart of things I hate is missing a content deadline, but it couldn't be helped. BUT!!! Cecily and I pledge to do a raincheck podcast Monday evening for Suburbicon, and I'll see if I can rope Jim into it too.

Cinema Spooktacular 2017!

10/23/2017

A.Ron and Cecily begin a tradition of discussing the scary movies they've been watching throughout the Halloween season! No spoilers to scare any body off, we just talk about just how and what type of scary they are. This year's crop of fresh indie horrors is courtesy Kimberly Dadds Buzzfeed article on 31 scary movies to watch during the month of October. The list is below, and I've linked to Jim and A.Ron's in depth review of Pontypool.

The Foreigner (2017)

10/12/2017
More
A.Ron and Jim saw Jackie Chan's return to action form in The Foreigner, a Taken-esque revenge film where a grieving father takes it upon himself to avenge the death of his beloved daughter at the hands of IRA bombers. It's great looking, featuring great performances from both Chan and Brosnan, and Jackie hasn't lost more than a step or two when it comes to the action, fearlessly throwing his 63 year old body all over the screen. What he might have lost in athleticism he makes up for in a...

Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

10/5/2017
More
Jim and A.Ron went to see Bladerunner 2049 tonight, what did they think? A.Ron thinks it's amazing, absorbing, and needs multiple viewings to unravel all of it's mysteries, while Jim thinks the same but wishes they'd cut about 20 minutes of Gosling walking down sidewalks and starring off into the distance. And that's probably fair, but then again a somewhat stately, almost glacial pace is kind of a Bladerunner hallmark, no? Enjoy our spoiler free review, and discussion of upcoming movies...

Batman Begins (2005)

10/2/2017
More
Special thanks to Ethan and Allison for commissioning Batman Begins, the first in the Nolanverse Batman trilogy (you can see our podcast on Batman: The Dark Knight here). This is a fantastic comic book movie that also happens to be a fantastic film in it's own right. We love the fusion of gritty realism with the strong emotional core and exploration of Bruce Wayne and his struggle to walk the narrow path between justice and vengeance. Excellent casting, excellent performances, and while...

American Made (2017)

9/28/2017
More
Jim and A.Ron have seen the latest Tom Cruise vehicle, American Made, and it's pretty good! If you haven't seen the past three seasons of Narcos or a "hey, it's fun to watch charming people do really bad things until the third act when it all falls apart" kind of movie you might call it a great film. But we're about weary of the concept and wary of the "based on a true story" nature of the film. But it's pretty good. And Jesse Plemmons reprises his role as "Fat Damon" from Fargo Season 2...

IT (2017)

9/28/2017

A.Ron and Cecily file a belated report on the smash hit horror movie based on the best selling Stephen King novel of the same name, "IT". Please enjoy our spoiler free review, but if you want our spoiler filled complete analysis of the film, you'll have to be a Club Bald Move member!

Reservoir Dogs (1992)

9/25/2017

Special thanks to Steven Sprague, celts77, Laura Hamilton, ztziemke, and Don C for commissioning this podcast, on the 1992 Quintin Tarantino crime drama, Reservoir Dogs. We discuss the writing, the performances, our opinions on the true meaning of Madonna's "Like a Virgin", the insights QT has on crime and society, and debate it's place in the Tarantino pantheon. Thanks again to all of our commissioners, we couldn't do it without you!

Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)

9/21/2017
More
Jim and A.Ron saw Kingsman: The Golden Circle tonight, and pronounce it stupid, but fun. Maybe ever so slightly less stupid than the first one, but also maybe not reaching quite the dizzying heights of crazy either. But everyone in the movie looked like they were in on the joke and having the time of their lives, which helps tremendously. Everyone looks like a million bucks, the stunts are awesome and entertaining, and there are great cameos and dare we say smart payoffs to stupid jokes...
