We’re back with 3 blockbusting cinematic adventures! Laurie & Phil both saw Thor’s 3rd solo outing boasting a slightly new direction from the much-buzzed-about Taika Waititi. Laurie saw emotional true story Breathe with Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy, while Phil caught Happy Death Day in time for Halloween. We also chat a little about the (old) news that The Matrix might be in line for a reboot, and suggest an alternative way forwards for studios looking to make a quick buck from an old idea. Listen to the end for your emails and tweets, and keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – thanks for tuning back in!
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!
Is the pairing of Ryan Reynolds & Samuel L. Jackson buddy comedy lightning-in-a-bottle? Find out what Phil and Laurie thought of The Hitman’s Bodyguard. We also chat about Daniel Craig’s recent confirmation that he will be returning as James Bond, after much tedious speculation that Tom Hiddleston might take up the mantle, which let’s be honest, was never going to happen. Laurie’s What We’ve Been Watching films cover Richard Linklater’s A Scanner Darkly with Keanu Reeves and a rewatch of Finding Dory, and Phil gives his late thoughts to Captain Fantastic & Paterson. Thanks so much for your emails and tweets, we love getting them and reading them out on the show! Keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter.
