Loads of films this week! Laurie saw Christian Bale in Hostiles, Christopher Plummer in Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World and Ben Stiller in Brad’s Status, while Phil caught Jessica Chastain in Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut Molly’s Game, and Jack Black in Richard Linklater’s odd film Bernie. Phew! We’ve also got a thought on slow zooms in film; how you begin to notice little technical details as you watch lots of films, and your emails and tweets towards the end of the show. Send in your thoughts, +1s or -1s and anything else you can think of to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter – thanks for listening!
Season 3 is here! We dive right into Jumanji’s reboot with Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart & Jack Black, Pitch Perfect 3 with Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, and Stronger with Jake Gyllenhaal. We also take a look at Nancy Myers’ It’s Complicated with Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin, and Japanese anime sensation Your Name for What We’ve Been Watching, and Phil takes us on a strange tangent, asking – if you’re being honest – is Mary Poppins a fun character? Keep your emails and tweets coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros. Thanks for listening – Happy New Year!
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.
