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 firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter.
Has Netflix scored a hit with sports doping documentary Icarus? Phil tells all, while Laurie catches up with Judi Dench and Ali Fazal in historical drama Victoria & Abdul and Dylan O’Brien and Michael Keaton in ‘espionage thriller’ American Assassin. Pixar’s Ratatouille also joins the pack for WWBW, with Phil and Laurie on opposite sides for the first time in a while! We’ve got your emails and tweets towards the end of the show too – keep them coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening!
Phil pulled his socks up and tried not to scream (too much) watching the new take on Stephen King’s horror classic It with Bill Skarsgård, while Laurie watched Jeremy Renner try to out craggy-face Daniel Craig in Taylor Sheridan’s chilly crime drama Wind River. We also dip into the news that J. J. Abrams will return to direct and co-write Star Wars Episode IX, replacing Colin Trevorrow, and cover Jet Li’s Fearless (2006) and Viggo Mortensen in Eastern Promises (2007) for WWBW this week. Stay tuned to the end for your emails and tweets, and keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening!
