Oscar-winner Emma Stone tackles Billie-Jean King, facing off against Steve Carell’s Bobby Riggs in Battle of the Sexes – but who gets KO’d? Laurie also saw George Clooney’s Suburbicon with Matt Damon, co-written with the Coen Brothers, and Daddy’s Home 2 with Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg and… Mel Gibson?? Phil takes us through a tour of top Disney songs, and we wonder what it is that makes the good ones great. Listen out for your emails and tweets towards the end of the show, and send more of your thoughts and comments in to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros. Thanks for listening!
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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – and thanks for listening!
