Edgar Wright returns with a much-hyped genre piece; but how does it drive? / does it get in gear? / does the pedal hit the metal? (You choose the driving pun there). Laurie also saw Japanese animated feature In This Corner of the World covering Hiroshima in the 1940s, and WWBW is back with James Cameron’s Avatar and Tony Scott’s Enemy of the State starring Will Smith. Phil has a Picture Perfect up his sleeve with the Moria staircase sequence from Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, and we go through your emails and tweets too. Thanks for listening & staying in touch! Reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros with your thoughts.
So much to say! Michael Bay directs the 5th (and last?) robots-in-disguise film, Transformers: The Last Knight, while we also cover Chris Evans in Gifted and Luke Wilson in animated feature Rock Dog. Two big movie news stories make the cut, with Daniel Day-Lewis‘s shock retirement, and Disney cutting ties with acclaimed directing duo Phil Lord & Chris Miller. WWBW has The Sweetest Thing (2002) and Thor: The Dark World (2013), and we also cram in some Movie Love/Hate thoughts on elderly characters, on top of all your emails and tweets. Big show! Thanks for tuning in – send your thoughts to email@example.com and @superbaileybros.
Tom Cruise returns for a second outing as Lee Child’s macho hero Jack Reacher, this time assisted by Cobie Smulders. He’s got big shoes (and clothes) to fill – how does it measure up? We also talk convenient parades, festivals protests – you know, the ones that spring up right in the middle of a chase scene! And Phil draws our attention to some hot movie news topics including the announcement of Donald Glover as young Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo spinoff, Harrison Ford returning to Blade Runner 2049 and the intriguing changes in the 3rd trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. As if all that wasn’t enough, we end with a chat about ambiguity in movies; when it’s done well and when it really winds us up! Thanks for listening, let us know your thoughts on firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter.
