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!
Do Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson make a good on-screen husband and wife? Or has Sofology forever dented his acting chops? Laurie saw their new weepy film Wonder, also with Jacob Tremblay, and managed to catch Dan Stevens in the Charles Dickens almost-biopic The Man Who Invented Christmas for good measure. Phil speaks up for The Mask of Zorro as an under-appreciated classic, and also braves our first throw-away Christmas movie of the year in Nativity! with Martin Freeman. Stay to the end for your emails and tweets, and send more to email@example.com and @superbaileybros. Thanks for listening!
