Six older films to watch or avoid this week in a WWBW special. Laurie tackles Mark Wahlberg’s Shooter (2007), Paul Verhoeven’s original RoboCop (1987) & bizarre Brendan Fraser rocker/slacker comedy Airheads (1994). Phil covers Quentin Taratino’s True Romance (1993), Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002) with Beyoncé Knowles & indie sci-fi flick Circle (2015). We also discuss the news that Colin Trevorrow has been dropped from Star Wars Episode IX, and Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Twitter meltdown leads us into the relationship between filmmakers and film critics. And we go through some of your emails and tweets too. Loads of stuff! Stay in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – and thanks for listening!
How does Tom Hiddleston fare as a gritty adventurer in Kong’s latest reincarnation? Laurie gives a rundown of Kong: Skull Island in this mini episode along with some bonus bits and baby news. One more mini-show next week, then we’re back in action on Monday 27th – thanks for listening!
