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!
Phil saw Kathryn Bigelow’s latest heavy-hitting drama Detroit, with John Boyega and Will Poulter, and also caught Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in The Dark Tower, adapting Stephen King’s hugely popular series for the big screen. Laurie saw Bill Nighy and Olivia Cooke prance about in Jane Goldman’s adaptation of Stephen Ackroyd’s novel, The Limehouse Golem, and he brings Road House with Patrick Swayze to the table for What We’ve Been Watching. Phil also offers up his own views on Colossal with Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis, and we’ve got all your emails and tweets to read out too. Send your thoughts and ideas to email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter – thanks for listening!
It’s a bumper film week! Laurie’s seen Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword with Charlie Hunnam & Jude Law, Nacho Vigalondo’s Colossal with Anne Hathaway & Jason Sudeikis, and Woody Harrelson’s live film project Lost in London. Phil caught John Madden’s Miss Sloane with Jessica Chastain, and WWBW returns with Juno and Predestination. We even squeeze in some thoughts on whether there’s a case for remastering old films, like George Lucas’ Star Wars special editions.
