Loads of films this week! Laurie saw Christian Bale in Hostiles, Christopher Plummer in Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World and Ben Stiller in Brad’s Status, while Phil caught Jessica Chastain in Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut Molly’s Game, and Jack Black in Richard Linklater’s odd film Bernie. Phew! We’ve also got a thought on slow zooms in film; how you begin to notice little technical details as you watch lots of films, and your emails and tweets towards the end of the show. Send in your thoughts, +1s or -1s and anything else you can think of to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter – thanks for listening!
Laurie strapped in for a white-knuckle Marvel (Disney) ride with the Guardians in their hugely anticipated sequel, again penned and helmed by studio magic man James Gunn. He also saw Oscar Isaac & Christian Bale in The Promise, and caught Florence Pugh & William Oldroyd’s almost-debut, Lady Macbeth. We answer Stephen’s pressing film problem in our Movie Clinic, this time featuring Lorene Scafaria’s Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World, and WWBW takes us through The Amazing Spiderman 2 and the Oscar-winning Birdman. Thanks for listening, stay in touch on email@example.com and @superbaileybros!
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. In other news, Jude Law has been announced as young Dumbledore, so we give our two wizarding cents. We’ve also got quick reviews of Paul Verhoeven’s Elle with Oscar-nominated Isabelle Huppert, Trespass Against Us with Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson, and four WWBW reviews with Kingsman: The Secret Service, American Hustle, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And of course, your emails and tweets. There you go, more film stuff than you can shake a stick at! Keep in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – thanks for listening!
