Should you believe the anti-hype? Phil & Laurie disagree about whether Zack Snyder & Joss Whedon’s team of DC heroes hits the mark – who do you think has got it right? Hear a spoilery breakdown of what works and doesn’t work in the Justice League, with Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Henry Cavill’s moustache & Jeremy Irons. And get your own two cents in to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros!
Only one Oscar nom this week – Laurie saw Maren Ade’s Toni Erdmann, up for Best Foreign Language Film. Phil trotted off to see animated animals go X Factor in Garth Jennings’ Sing, and Laurie also went to see Matthew McConaughey transform for Stephen Gaghan’s faux-biopic Gold. Movie News briefly touches on Ben Affleck’s announcement that he is no longer in line to direct DC’s next Batman, and Laurie has a mystery new feature to add too!

Oscar season is well & truly here with two major contenders. Laurie saw Pablo Larraín’s unusual biopic of JFK’s First Lady starring Natalie Portman, and Phil saw Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea with the much-nominated Casey Affleck front and centre. We also welcome new horror correspondent Benedict Seal to the show for The Bye Bye Man and Laurie managed to squeeze in Ben Affleck’s Boston gangster epic Live By Night too. Big show this week!
