Phil returns to talk Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread, featuring Daniel Day-Lewis’ potential last film role, and also gives his opinion on Alexander Payne’s Downsizing. What We’ve Been Watching makes a smashing comeback with Nancy Myers’ The Intern and Michael Keaton in The Founder, while Phil diverts Laurie & the listeners with his own personal ‘Film Academy’ (it will make sense when you hear it… probably). Stay tuned to the end for your emails & tweets, and keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – thanks for listening!
Three non-Oscar films this week to mix it up! Laurie saw Matt Damon in Alexander Payne’s Downsizing, Eddie Redmayne in Nick Park’s latest stop-motion feature Early Man, and Chris Hemsworth attempting to sound American in Nicolai Fuglsig’s directorial debut 12 Strong. No Phil this week, it’s a sort-of-pilot for a change-up in format – tell us what you think at email@example.com and @superbaileybros. Thanks for listening!
Spider-man returns in his third incarnation as Tom Holland in Sony & Marvel’s hopeful new partnership – Phil tells us how it looks. Laurie saw kids’ favourite Despicable Me 3 with Steve Carell, while Phil also managed to catch Emma Watson & Tom Hanks’ tech thriller The Circle. WWBW features Disney classic Bedknobs and Broomsticks with Angela Lansbury, and Bailey family classic Galaxy Quest with Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver & Alan Rickman. Last but not least, we fit another brief Picture Perfect in there, with a scene from Harrison Ford & Tommy Lee Jones in The Fugitive. Stay tuned to the end for listener tweets and emails, and send yours in to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening!
