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.

Robert and I analyze popular movies from a Rothbardian/AnarchoCapitalist 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.

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.

We invite a returning guest, Liam Cardenas, to discuss the Ghost in the Shell. We primarily focus on the newer ScarJo version, but also discuss the original anime.

Major (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: a human mind inside an artificial body. Discovering her creators lied about her past life to control her, Major will stop at nothing to unravel the mystery of her true identity and exact revenge.

We get into a lively conversation that runs a bit longer than we intend for the new format, but we think it is well worth it.

We discuss the 2009 Gerard Butler vehicle, GAMER, about live-action video-gaming of real live players, both in a simulated world where anything goes; and a Running Man/Gladiator-style fight for freedom from the dystopian prison system.

Though not a great movie, Robert and I find plenty to discuss in this one. Worth seeing if you want to dig into some of the deeper questions out of a movie that tries really, really hard to be flash in the pan.

We hang on to the last vestiges of my youth as I turn 40 and talk about a children's movie with my friend since childhood, and co-host, Robert. WALL-E is a charming story of a lonely robot who gains sentience and becomes lonely; but there's also some ridiculous economic fallacies and a few strong propagandistic messages being pushed. We hope you enjoy this one!

Robert and I start to implement a few optimizations to the format of the show as we discuss Jordan Peele's "Get Out" which is an excellent movie that uses perceptions related to race to mask the narrative of the story. We both really enjoyed this one and appreciate you bearing with us as we implement updates to the show.

We travel to a galaxy far, far way with the Professional A$$hole to talk about episode VIII of the latest Star Wars trilogy of trilogies, "the Last Jedi". The Star Wars saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join galactic legends in an epic adventure unlocking mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.

We get into some deep nerdery on this one, and of course: spoilers all the time.

We're going to own Christmas with Mike C. as we talk about the late-80's Bill Murray Christmas classic, "The Night the Reindeer Died". Oh wait....no, it's, "Scrooged"!

Murray Cajun Christmas!

Mike was our guest for our Halloween special on the Night of the Living Dead, and he may have just usurped another holiday!

Father loves Beaver. Yule love it!
