Videogame Movie Special – Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, Warcraft, Assassin’s Creed, Max Payne & Super Mario Bros.

Are videogame adaptations the next big studio cash cow? We take a look at the state of the videogame film genre, covering box office winners & losers over the last 20 years and trying to figure out why none of them have so far avoided a ‘Rotten’ critical reception. Featuring detailed looks at Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil (2002) and Mark Wahlberg in Max Payne (2008), we also chat through other videogame franchises we’d like to see on the big screen. Stay tuned to the end for your emails & tweets, and keep them coming to superbaileybros@gmail.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening – and sorry it’s a day late this week!

True Romance, RoboCop (1987), Circle, Shooter, Austin Powers in Goldmember, Airheads & Colin Trevorrow dropped from Star Wars

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 superbaileybros@gmail.com and @superbaileybros – and thanks for listening!

Transformers 5, Gifted, Rock Dog, Movie News: Daniel Day-Lewis & Han Solo Directors, The Sweetest Thing, Thor: The Dark World & Older People in Film

So much to say! Michael Bay directs the 5th (and last?) robots-in-disguise film, Transformers: The Last Knight, while we also cover Chris Evans in Gifted and Luke Wilson in animated feature Rock Dog. Two big movie news stories make the cut, with Daniel Day-Lewis‘s shock retirement, and Disney cutting ties with acclaimed directing duo Phil Lord & Chris Miller. WWBW has The Sweetest Thing (2002) and Thor: The Dark World (2013), and we also cram in some Movie Love/Hate thoughts on elderly characters, on top of  all your emails and tweets. Big show!
