with Jon Spira: Elstree 1976 & The Last Jedi

Laurie met Director Jon Spira in glamorous central London to talk about The Last Jedi and his critically acclaimed documentary following the strange life experiences of extras from the original Star Wars trilogy, Elstree 1976. We covered a huge range of topics and got into the nitty gritty of the film industry itself, from Jon’s perspective as a filmmaker and scriptwriter. Get in touch with your thoughts on our discussion at superbaileybros@gmail.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter, and make sure to check out his films – including the famous documentary about Oxford’s music scene, Anyone Can Play Guitar.

Thor: Ragnarok, Breathe, Happy Death Day & The Matrix Remake

We’re back with 3 blockbusting cinematic adventures! Laurie & Phil both saw Thor’s 3rd solo outing boasting a slightly new direction from the much-buzzed-about Taika Waititi. Laurie saw emotional true story Breathe with Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy, while Phil caught Happy Death Day in time for Halloween. We also chat a little about the (old) news that The Matrix might be in line for a reboot, and suggest an alternative way forwards for studios looking to make a quick buck from an old idea.
