We get into "Hero" a mythical retelling of the historical story of the first emperor of China who used military conquest in a bid to unite the country and implement peace.

Not to be confused with the Mariah Carey movie of the same name, Hero starring martial arts legend Jet Li in a visually stunning martial arts epic where a fearless warrior rises up to defy an empire and unite a nation! With supernatural skill ... and no fear ... a nameless soldier embarks on a mission of revenge against the fearsome army that massacred his people.

Let's just say that we find the means dubious to attempt to achieve a noble goal.

Robert and I analyze popular movies from a Rothbardian/Anarcho-Capitalist perspective.

We use movies as a starting point for people who may not be familiar with this way of thinking.   Discussion of the plot and decisions that characters make in relation to morality and violations of the non-aggression principle are our bread and butter.

We also will highlight and discuss any themes or lessons from Austrian Economics that we can glean from the film.

The point is to show what anarchy actually is with instances that are presented in film.

We publish at least once per week; and occasionally will do specials surrounding holidays or events (elections/olympics) and have guests.

Happy Easter everyone. We do a movie with a namesake related to the holiday and discuss 1996's, "The Last Supper". It's about the type of people who think they are so smart and can fix everything wrong with the world, if it weren't for the backwards heathens preventing them. Their smug solution is of course: murder

Just like all the totalitarian dictators (democratic or otherwise), just on a smaller scale.

We hope you enjoy this unstructured, if lively discussion, where Robert and I are at odds on the film.

Back to school. Back to school. To prove to dad that I'm not a fool.
Hahahaha. Shut up.

We are back at it again with episode 69 of the podcast talking about the generational cult classic Adam Sandler flick, Billy Madison. This one is mostly talking about the ridiculousness of the plot and some of the funny quotes and bizarre scenes, but we hope you enjoy it.

Where's the money Lebowski?

We go over the line and talk about the Big Lebowski. A film that came out 20 years ago and still holds up to this day. A strong cast of characters pulls this movie together with witty dialogue and comedy gold that is best watched under a strict regimen of intoxicants.

We just checked in to see what condition our condition was in.

We discuss the Will Smith film, "The Pursuit of Happyness" and get into a heated debate over whether this is an inspirational story about an entrepreneurial dreamer, or a guy with misplaced priorities making stupid choices and putting his child at risk. This is a fun one.

Will Smith stars in this moving tale inspired by the true story about a struggling single father who dreams of a better life for his young son. Finding themselves homeless, he risks everything by embarking on an unpaid internship in a highly competitive stockbroker training program where only one in twenty interns make the grade.

We get our kicks on Route 66 doing an analysis of the Disney/Pixar film, Cars. It has a luddite-ish “buy local” message, which has a nostalgic element, but at a cost of a lower standard of living. Still, there is enough story and character arc to make it a pleasant enough watch.

Robert and I take a dive into the world of Blade Runner where warrants aren't necessary and either is a scrolling text that is large enough to read.

This was a followup to the cult-classic, sci-fi film noir, Blade Runner where replicants and humans have a rocky coexistence once free will is discovered by the replicant slaves.

This is a beautiful movie that has taken great care in the craft of film making, has a deliberate pace that realizes the vision of the director. Unfortunately, they miss the off-world ship about having a coherent story. We get into it.

In what may become a routine feature, we do a foreign film from South Korea that has a bit of a cult following in the US, I Saw the Devil. This one is timely as the Olympics are currently taking place there and has plenty on offer.

It's a story of revenge where the aggrieved party takes justice into their own hands, and fights fire with fire, becoming the monster he is hunting.

Kyung-chul (Choi Min-sik) is a dangerous psychopath who kills for pleasure. He has committed infernal serial murders in diabolic ways that one cannot even imagine and his victims range from young women to even children. The police have chased him for a long time, but were unable to catch him. One day, Joo-yeon, daughter of a retired police chief becomes his prey and is found dead in a horrific state. Her fiance Soo-hyun (Lee Byung-hun), a top secret agent, decides to track down the murderer himself. He promises himself that he will do everything in his power to take bloody vengeance against the killer, even if it means that he must become a monster himself to get this monstrous and inhumane killer.

We expect to have Patrick MacFarlane of Liberty Weekly on to discuss this film and any other rabbit-trails we go down during the inaugural episode of our new hangout-style/conversation show to be called "Boys Night Out" where all guests and listeners must identify as a man for the duration of the show.

Can you feel the love tonight? Robert and I eviscerate Disney's The Lion King faster than goose-stepping hyenas turned on Scar. We hope you enjoy this one where we take on monarchy, democracy, time preference, trespassing, self-defense, social ostracism, plot holes, and animation....and so close to Valentine's Day. Enjoy!

We go back to the Bill Murray well....again. It's Groundhog Day on the Actual Anarchy Podcast. A movie that despite being 25 years old now, holds up very well.

Bill Murray is at his wry, wisecracking best in this riotous romantic comedy about a weatherman caught in a personal time warp on the worst day of his life. Teamed with a relentlessly cheerful producer (Andie MacDowell) and a smart-aleck cameraman (Chris Elliott), TV weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is sent to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to cover the annual Groundhog Day festivities. After a surprise blizzard traps him in small-town hell, things get even worse; Phil wakes the next morning to find it’s GROUNDHOG DAY all over again… and again… and again.

step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
