Mr. Robot – 309 – eps3.8_stage3.torrent

The latest episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.8_stage3.torrent” manages to raise a lot of questions that we’re hoping to get at least some answers to for the finale next week.  Has Elliot really managed to “own” the Dark Army, or is this an elaborate rope a dope once again by White Rose?  Is Phillip Price really out of plays?  Who’s driving the van that picks up the now super crazy Angela?  Is Dom and Darlene secretly working together to out Santiago as Dark Army’s rat inside the FBI?  And for the love of God, what exactly is White Rose up to?!  See you next week where we can find out together!

Bald Movies – The Disaster Artist (2017)

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 feels like the barest sketch possible to make the film work.  But it does work, and like Ed Wood before it, manages to make an amazing movie out of a dog turd.  It’s an amazing alchemic work, spinning gold from lead.  Go see it, regardless of how familiar you are with the source material.  You’re going to be in for a good time.

Bald Movies – Jack Frost (1998)

The Merry Culkin Keatmas rages on with our podcast that brings the Keaton to Keatmas, 1998’s box office bomb, Jack Frost.  The film isn’t great, but we managed to extract a surprising amount of fun and holiday cheer from it.  Enjoy!  And don’t forget Lunch coming this Friday!  Next week we’ll tackle Home Alone with both LiveWatch and podcast.  See you then!

Watching Dead – 807 – Time for After

AMC’s The Walking Dead presents for us a perfect storm of mullet, trash people, rapid onset morgalizing, and terrible action sequences.  Except in the actual perfect storm it was two terrible things coming together to make a larger terrible thing, and in “Time for After” it’s four.  Regardless, George Clooney and Marky Mark ain’t making it out alive.  The question Jim and I are left with is, do we go down with the ship?  Or accept coast guard rescue?  Honestly, I’ve kind of lost the metaphor at this point, but if Gimple can do it, so can I!
