The gas-guzzling franchise returns for more ridiculous action fun, but has it finally jumped the shark? Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson & Charlize Theron put the pedal to the metal. In other news, Jude Law has been announced as young Dumbledore, so we give our two wizarding cents. We’ve also got quick reviews of Paul Verhoeven’s Elle with Oscar-nominated Isabelle Huppert, Trespass Against Us with Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson, and four WWBW reviews with Kingsman: The Secret Service, American Hustle, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And of course, your emails and tweets. There you go, more film stuff than you can shake a stick at! Keep in touch on email@example.com and @superbaileybros – thanks for listening!
Merry Christmas everyone! Phil managed to squeeze one last movie in before the break, and caught Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence in new sci-fi flick Passengers. He also tests Laurie on his Christmas film trivia with a quiz, and we both look back over our top movie moments of 2016 – that’s not exactly best bits or worst bits, just things that stood out to us! Thanks for listening and being in touch; why not drop us a message to come back to when we return in the New Year at firstname.lastname@example.org or @superbaileybros on Twitter. A very Merry Christmas to you, and a Happy New Year!
David O. Russell brings Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper back together for a strange, almost-biopic of Joy Mangano, inventor of the Miracle Mop.
