We’re pretty sure the show is messing with us. The answers that Metanoia gave us are confounding a majority of theorizers. As more and more theoretical outcomes are being crossed off of the list, we’re curious to see how this season of Westworld wraps up. Questions about Christina are always interesting, but can we please the notion that there migh…
 
Take a walk on the adventurous side as we revisit a staple of classic pulp movies. The dialogue crackles, the visuals stun, and Harrison Ford creates an icon of 20th century cinema. We have the behind-the-scenes of stunts and the story of Lucas and Spielberg’s fateful Hawaii trip. From the rolling boulder to the Ark wiping out the Third Reich, it’s…

Metanoia? How about paranoia? Are there two timelines in a simulation of the world within the real world? Did that sentence give you a stroke? I lost a day off of my life typing that. With the show getting crazier, the theories are following suit. Tune in and go crazy with us. Got feedback or proof that we’re all sims? Send us a message at westworl…
 
Craving more reasons to throw yourself in an existential crisis? Join Jim and A.Ron as they go through YOUR feedback and theories. Is there something deeper in the tower’s sound pattern? Why print so many Caleb bodies? Westworld is taking us on a journey more satisfying than seasons past, but will they stick the landing? Got feedback or proof that …

Listen to the Hall of Fame museum layout plans that will be built in Los Angeles 2049 (I hope). Thanks for joining us in our Badass rankings and we’ll see you next ye…
 
Yes, Westworld S04E06 "Fidelity" contains a ridiculous action scene, but it importantly recontextualizes some of the strange things we saw in previous episodes and serves up plenty of other scenes of interest that more than make this a good episode of Westworld. Check out https://support.baldmove.com/ to find out how you can gain access to ALL of o…
 
David and John discuss Tolkien’s academic career and obsession with language before breaking down the origin story and political factions of the Elves of Middle-earth.

We’re in the “buckle up and don’t think about it too much” phase of this season. Lipstickgate makes a brief appearance. We get some answers about Caleb. But as it goes with Westworld, one answer leads to many more questions. Join us as we go through your questions and theories for this week’s episode, Fidelity. Got feedback or proof that we’re all …
 
We're rereleasing our episode on The Lost Boys (1987) in honor of the movie's 35th anniversary!

Wow, this is a bad movie. There's almost nothing redeeming about it. It's not even one of those "so bad it's good" movies. It's not badass, it's just ass. Join us for an hour-long discussion of why this movie doesn't work and whether Dolph Lundgren has what it takes to crack the upper echelons of our badass rankings. Check out https://support.baldm…
 
Gather ‘round fleshy humans, we’re going through YOUR feedback and theories. Is this all part of Ford’s scheme? Is the show using the Darth Vader plan? Is there a secret Morse code message in lipstick application? Can hosts anchor themselves in reality the same way humans can? And we have special feedback for our philosophy episode! Got feedback or…
 
Are we hosts dreaming that we’re human? Or are we humans dreaming that we’re hosts? Dive into the philosophical origins of the title of this episode. Jim comes around to A.Ron’s ascension theory based on evidence from this episode. We get some answers in this episode, but now we have more questions. Got feedback or proof that we’re all sims? Send u…
 
David and John discuss the film, tv, and radio adaptations of Tolkien’s work before telling the story of the Fall of Númenor, a tragedy about the power of fear, which will likely be a storyline in The Rings of Power. Join us to continue our deep dive into the lore behind Amazon’s upcoming series, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. Questions…
 
Westworld is hitting its stride in a big way. It felt good to finally get some answers to our burning questions, but now that the door has been kicked down, more questions are flooding in. Charlotte Hale is cementing her place as one of the greatest villains. We’ve done the philosophical research for you in this episode of Watching Westworld with p…
 
How is the sublime capable of simulating the entire earth? Can a heaven become a hell? Has the simulation spread to the entire universe? Is it a tuna melt or a pastrami sandwich?? Are the host marbles symbolic wads of dung??? And Michele Boyd, who plays Temperance Armistice, writes to your favorite hosts. Tune in for answers and laughs with Jim and…

Today we're joined by Aaron Rabinowitz, lecturing philosopher at Rutgers, as well as host of the Embrace the Void and Philosophers in Space podcast. He's going to be talking to us today about the concepts of freewill vs determinism. Are humans on inescapable loops? Are we truly free to make our own decisions? If not, do our choices matter in any me…
 
What do Apple and Westworld have in common? Forced obsolescence. Dolores presses forward to a new world order with hordes of flies. Fire fights explode. Maeve gives Caleb something to fight for. All the while, hosts and humans are forced ever closer to extinction. Is the future flesh, or is the future flies? Got feedback or proof that we’re all sim…

CHAMPION. CHARISMA. CHARACTER. Listener beware! Spoilers start at (00:26:05). Today we’re focusing on “Charisma” with John McClane in the third movie of the Die Hard franchise. It’s not the perfect Die Hard movie, but it has Samuel L. Jackson who is perfect. It delivers on fun action set pieces, but does feature one of the most ridiculous “blown to…

The summer badass celebration hauls on this week with Over the Top, the ludicrous 80s-soaked Sylvester Stallone movie that is one third competitive arm wrestling tournament and two thirds custody battle.

If you were a Bald Move Club member, you'd see a video and a link to the live chat on this page. Check out http…
 
Starring Natalie Portman’s arms! Adding to the ever-evolving Thor mythos, Love and Thunder was an addition to the Marvel canon that was bright, mostly fun, and oozes Taiki Waititi’s style. In a crazy GNR backed romp, Thor Classic and Thor Jane take on a villain that makes us go “Wow, Christian Bale should play the Joker.” In a half-good, half-eye r…
 
Ouch. A lot of people avoided becoming chunky salsa, and we’re actually disappointed. The episode had to pack in A LOT of information to wrap up the season full of psychopaths and potential patricide. Between the smackdowns, The Deep’s stoic murder felt too tame and that’s when we know that The Boys has corrupted our brains. And, um, where did Stan…
 
Let’s take a look at Season 4 before Season 5 comes out…in a few years. In the meantime, can we appreciate how the Stranger Things fanbase is still around for this great show? In a season that could have easily gone wrong, so many things went oh so right and we couldn’t be happier. Join us as we discuss things we missed in Season 4 and what a time …
 
Are you spotting smoke and decrypting parallels from previous seasons? Maybe you should work for the FBI. Let’s ponder the question “what makes a person”? What is the show trying to say about the meaning of being sentient and alive? And how many times are we going to go back and forth between deciding if this is real or a simulation? Grab a Methuse…
 
CHARISMA. CHAMPION. CHARACTER. Find out what it takes for A.Ron and Jim to qualify you as a “badass”. Get a peek at the extremely niche and erudite system that turns ranking into an art. With an expectation of adding future badasses to the rankings, we might need to blow up our resin Mt. Rushmore from time to time. How badass would that be? Hey the…
 
The metaphors are coming down heavily with the use of the book My Father’s Dragon and the opera Don Giovanni. In a show where people who seem like they should be dead are alive, we can’t trust our own eyes. Does everything in this reality have an explanation, or are we watching an abstracted reality? Is Christina unconsciously carrying an encryptio…
 
CHAMPION. CHARISMA. CHARACTER. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the epitome of badassness, is facing down Green Berets and Freddie Mercury mustaches. Not only will you see Arnold achieve his highest body count in a movie, you’ll see some really awesome stunts pre-CGI age. The script comes from Steven E. de Souza who also penned Die Hard, 48 Hours, and Judge …
 
Is it a simulation? Is it real life? Does your brain hurt yet? Hopefully any cranial discomfort is due to confusion and not black goo between your ears. We’ve got some theories on how this season is going to pan out. Want to share some of your own? Become a Club Member and join our instant talks where we discuss in real time your theories. Do your …
 
That was a metalhead finale we can cheer for. It came down to the wire and Eleven’s arms were extending while she screamed, of course. BUT the Duffer Brothers delivered a gut punch that made us remember why we love this show. While Jim is condemning pineapple pizza to The Upside Down, A.Ron is happy to report that this episode delivers in stakes, p…
 
The kids are gearing up and you should too. They’re all getting good bonding time before the final episode where we might lose one of the beloved kids. Nancy is smitten with Steve once again. Let’s be honest, who isn’t at this point? And we now have definitive proof that the clocks mean something, A.Ron would like his trophy now. Come back soon for…
 
What happens when you cross demented nursery rhymes and Empire Strikes Back? This episode of The Boys. With the members of the show living out different plot lines, it doesn’t quite feel like the boys are back in town. But that doesn’t stop the classic “Boys” antics of beating the living daylights out of each other. We’re seeing great characterizat…
 
How do you know what’s real on this show? Who do you believe? But what we do know, the practical knowledge of Westworld is paying off and people are protecting their precious food from packs of raccoons. If we could have a philosopher chime in on the free will vs. predestination thoughts, that would be great. Unless…we’re all already in a simulatio…
 
You know that fly that’s hanging out on your wall? Yeah, it’s out to get you. Before your eyes cross reading all those theories on Reddit, check out this episode of Watching Westworld as we gear up for watching the rest of season 4! Where do you stand on what makes a human? And listen to the fun facts A.Ron found on the Internet. Thoughts? Feedback…
