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 firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening – and sorry it’s a day late this week!
Laurie caught the Baywatch reboot with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron – is it finally time for Zac to head back into our good books? He also saw Studio Ghibli co-production The Red Turtle from animation director Michael Dudok de Wit, and was lucky to catch a Q&A with the man himself too. Phil saw Amy Schumer’s comedy caper Snatched, also starring Goldie Hawn, and today’s WWBW features Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson in Pain and Gain, and James Cameron’s classic sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day. As if that weren’t enough, we also have a brief chit chat on great eye acting examples, and ask for your thoughts and suggestions too.

We’re back! Hitting the ground running with Disney’s live action remake of Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson and Dan Stevens. Phil checks out whether it lives up to the hype. Laurie saw another remake/reboot in Power Rangers with Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks, and managed to catch new sci-fi movie Life starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson too. We also delve briefly into our ‘film diets’ to see whether we are deficient in any crucial movie vitamins. Thanks for listening and get in touch!
