Top 5(ish) Films of 2017 & Phil’s End of Year Quiz

Coming slightly too late for the holidays, it’s our Holiday Special! Featuring our Top 5 (plus one or two extra) Films of 2017, Phil’s End of Year Quiz for Laurie that you can play along with too, and your emails and tweets along for the ride at the end of the show. We’ll resume normal service as soon as possible – Happy New Year! And keep all your thoughts coming to superbaileybros@gmail.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter.

Transformers 5, Gifted, Rock Dog, Movie News: Daniel Day-Lewis & Han Solo Directors, The Sweetest Thing, Thor: The Dark World & Older People in Film

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 superbaileybros@gmail.com and @superbaileybros.

Wonder Woman, War Machine, Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge & After the Storm

Gal Gadot storms into cinemas as Wonder Woman this weekend, has the DCEU finally scored a hit with Patty Jenkins directing? Laurie tells all and also covers Hirokazu Kore-eda’s new family drama After the Storm, plus Brad Pitt’s new political satire War Machine on Netflix originals. Phil caught Johnny Depp and Brenton Thwaites in Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge (or was it Dead Men Tell No Tales?), and also covers off the whole Pirates franchise for a bit of nostalgic context in WWBW. Thanks for your emails & tweets sent to superbaileybros@gmail.com and @superbaileybros, and thanks for listening!
