Six older films to watch or avoid this week in a WWBW special. Laurie tackles Mark Wahlberg’s Shooter (2007), Paul Verhoeven’s original RoboCop (1987) & bizarre Brendan Fraser rocker/slacker comedy Airheads (1994). Phil covers Quentin Taratino’s True Romance (1993), Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002) with Beyoncé Knowles & indie sci-fi flick Circle (2015). We also discuss the news that Colin Trevorrow has been dropped from Star Wars Episode IX, and Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Twitter meltdown leads us into the relationship between filmmakers and film critics. And we go through some of your emails and tweets too. Loads of stuff! Stay in touch on email@example.com and @superbaileybros – and thanks for listening!
Did we la la love La La Land? (Sorry, bad joke) find out what we made of the Golden Globe-winning movie and its charismatic stars Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone as they hop skip, dance & sing around the screen. Phil saw poignant fantasy A Monster Calls with Felicity Jones & Laurie saw the much less poignant Monster Trucks with Rob Lowe – who got the better end of the deal? We also discuss Emma Watson’s singing in the recent clips from the live action Beauty & The Beast remake, while Phil takes us on a brief detour all to do with trilogies. Phew! Lots of good stuff to listen to – thanks for tuning in, keep your emails & tweets coming to firstname.lastname@example.org & @superbaileybros!
This week we look at Pulp Fiction (1994), Lethal Weapon (1987), Rashômon (1951) & A Late Quartet (2012). Hope you enjoy the show! Get in touch on email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter.
