Kenny B attempts to breathe new life into Agatha Christie’s eccentric Belgian detective as he directs & stars as Poirot in Murder on the Orient Express. Laurie chalked up another sequel no one asked for in A Bad Moms Christmas with Mila Kunis & Susan Sarandon, and WWBW returns with Phil’s views on Natalie Portman in Jackie and Julia Roberts’ debut in Mystic Pizza, while Laurie brings Bruce Willis in Surrogates to the table. We also spend a bit of time chatting through the odd experience of books/original sources that make you think worse of their film adaptations. Listen for your emails and tweets towards the end of the show, and keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – thanks for tuning in!
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 email@example.com and @superbaileybros, and thanks for listening!
A thoroughly disappointing follow-up to Tim Burton’s massively high-grossing reboot. Mia Wasikowska, Sacha Baron Cohen & some nice CGI design are the only things preventing this movie from being unwatchable.
