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!
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! Thanks for tuning in – send your thoughts to email@example.com and @superbaileybros.
Laurie caught the Baywatch reboot with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron – is it finally time for Zac to head back into our good books? He also saw Studio Ghibli co-production The Red Turtle from animation director Michael Dudok de Wit, and was lucky to catch a Q&A with the man himself too. Phil saw Amy Schumer’s comedy caper Snatched, also starring Goldie Hawn, and today’s WWBW features Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson in Pain and Gain, and James Cameron’s classic sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day. As if that weren’t enough, we also have a brief chit chat on great eye acting examples, and ask for your thoughts and suggestions too. Thanks for listening and being in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter!
