Laurie & Phil have both seen Lady Bird – hear whether Greta Gerwig’s debut is as sensational as the Oscar noms suggest. Laurie also catches us up with Margot Robbie & Oscar-winning Allison Janney in I, Tonya, while WWBW covers Duncan Jones’ divisive Netflix film Mute & Anthony Hopkins vs Ryan Gosling in Fracture. We also give our brief post-Oscars thoughts, bring back an old, much-loved feature and go through your emails & tweets to boot. Stay in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – thanks for listening!
Are videogame adaptations the next big studio cash cow? We take a look at the state of the videogame film genre, covering box office winners & losers over the last 20 years and trying to figure out why none of them have so far avoided a ‘Rotten’ critical reception. Featuring detailed looks at Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil (2002) and Mark Wahlberg in Max Payne (2008), we also chat through other videogame franchises we’d like to see on the big screen. Stay tuned to the end for your emails & tweets, and keep them coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening – and sorry it’s a day late this week!
