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!
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 email@example.com and @superbaileybros – and thanks for listening!
