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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros. Thanks for listening!
Oscar-winner Emma Stone tackles Billie-Jean King, facing off against Steve Carell’s Bobby Riggs in Battle of the Sexes – but who gets KO’d? Laurie also saw George Clooney’s Suburbicon with Matt Damon, co-written with the Coen Brothers, and Daddy’s Home 2 with Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg and… Mel Gibson?? Phil takes us through a tour of top Disney songs, and we wonder what it is that makes the good ones great. Listen out for your emails and tweets towards the end of the show, and send more of your thoughts and comments in to email@example.com and @superbaileybros. Thanks for listening!
