Our spoiler-free take on The Revenant & The Hateful Eight – two spectacular blockbusters; do either of them deserve an Oscar or two? Is this finally Leo’s year? Phil helps us make sense of the Oscars as we discuss the nominees, but also look into the journey those golden statuettes take on the way to the winners’ hands – is there any dodgy behind-the-scenes dealing? And we also talk about watching films with people who constantly ask ‘who’s that?’ ‘why did they go there?’ – we’ve all been there, probably on both sides! Thanks for listening, let us know your thoughts at email@example.com or @superbaileybros on Twitter.
Listeners take us into several mini-discussions in this bonus episode – what do the BBFC ratings really mean? Can films be too tense to watch? How do films age with time & life experience? And have Phil & I shed many manly tears in the movie house? Thanks for listening and emailing – keep getting in touch and we’ll see you next week for our full episode, reviewing the Hateful Eight & The Revenant, and taking a look at the Oscar nominations too.
