Black Panther is making a splash in newspaper columns & box offices around the world – can it live up to the hype? Staying on the high-expectations train, we also dissect Guillermo del Toro’s massively awards-nominated The Shape of Water. Should it take home all 13 of the Oscars it’s tipped for? Back in WWBW land, Phil caught up with Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, and Laurie watched Ryan Reynolds charm everyone again in 2000s romcom Definitely, Maybe. And there’s also a sneaky Picture Perfect in there Laurie feels somewhat self-conscious about… stay tuned to the end for your emails and tweets, and keep all your thoughts coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros! Thanks for listening.
Phil returns to talk Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread, featuring Daniel Day-Lewis’ potential last film role, and also gives his opinion on Alexander Payne’s Downsizing. What We’ve Been Watching makes a smashing comeback with Nancy Myers’ The Intern and Michael Keaton in The Founder, while Phil diverts Laurie & the listeners with his own personal ‘Film Academy’ (it will make sense when you hear it… probably). Stay tuned to the end for your emails & tweets, and keep them coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros – thanks for listening!
Three non-Oscar films this week to mix it up! Laurie saw Matt Damon in Alexander Payne’s Downsizing, Eddie Redmayne in Nick Park’s latest stop-motion feature Early Man, and Chris Hemsworth attempting to sound American in Nicolai Fuglsig’s directorial debut 12 Strong. No Phil this week, it’s a sort-of-pilot for a change-up in format – tell us what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros. Thanks for listening!
