The gas-guzzling franchise returns for more ridiculous action fun, but has it finally jumped the shark? Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson & Charlize Theron put the pedal to the metal.

And of course, your emails and tweets. There you go, more film stuff than you can shake a stick at! Keep in touch on email@example.com and @superbaileybros – thanks for listening!
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! Listen out for your tweets & emails during the show, and keep them coming at firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros. Thanks for listening!
