Loads of films this week! Laurie saw Christian Bale in Hostiles, Christopher Plummer in Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World and Ben Stiller in Brad’s Status, while Phil caught Jessica Chastain in Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut Molly’s Game, and Jack Black in Richard Linklater’s odd film Bernie. Phew! We’ve also got a thought on slow zooms in film; how you begin to notice little technical details as you watch lots of films, and your emails and tweets towards the end of the show. Send in your thoughts, +1s or -1s and anything else you can think of to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter – thanks for listening!
Denis Villeneuve’s hugely anticipated sequel is here, and so far the critical consensus looks promising – what did Phil & Laurie make of it? Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Jared Leto and Dave Bautista star in this futuristic sort-of-mystery set 30 years after the events of Ridley Scott’s 1982 seminal sci-fi classic. Tell us if you agree/disagree with us, and which of us made their point best! And send your own reviews to email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening!
Rachel Weisz tackles Daphne du Maurier’s enigmatic heroine in My Cousin Rachel, while BLAME! sees Netflix release a feature-length adaptation of a long-running Japanese manga series. Laurie saw both of these and also covers Children of Men and Gladiator for WWBW, with Phil taking a crack at How to Train Your Dragon and Sense & Sensibility. He also tries to explain how he handles movie fan frustration when friends don’t pick up on a film in quite the same way. Thanks for your emails and tweets! Keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – and of course, thanks for listening.
