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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com and @superbaileybros. Thanks for listening!
So many films to chat about! Phil saw The Post, Coco, 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri and even Darkest Hour to boot – while Laurie saw all o’ thems plus The Commuter and A Woman’s Life. A veritable cinematic bonanza of reviews and chuckles this week, plus some news about a format change going forwards! Thanks for emailing and tweeting, especially while we’ve had to be slightly irregular over the last couple of months.
