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.

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. Keep in touch on email@example.com and @superbaileybros – thanks for listening!
We’re back! Hitting the ground running with Disney’s live action remake of Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson and Dan Stevens. Phil checks out whether it lives up to the hype. Laurie saw another remake/reboot in Power Rangers with Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks, and managed to catch new sci-fi movie Life starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson too. We also delve briefly into our ‘film diets’ to see whether we are deficient in any crucial movie vitamins. Thanks for listening and get in touch!
