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!
Kenny B attempts to breathe new life into Agatha Christie’s eccentric Belgian detective as he directs & stars as Poirot in Murder on the Orient Express. Laurie chalked up another sequel no one asked for in A Bad Moms Christmas with Mila Kunis & Susan Sarandon, and WWBW returns with Phil’s views on Natalie Portman in Jackie and Julia Roberts’ debut in Mystic Pizza, while Laurie brings Bruce Willis in Surrogates to the table. We also spend a bit of time chatting through the odd experience of books/original sources that make you think worse of their film adaptations. Listen for your emails and tweets towards the end of the show, and keep them coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros – thanks for tuning in!
Laurie saw Disney’s new Polynesian mythology-inspired animation Moana with Auli’i Cravalho & Dwayne Johnson, and also managed to watch Jim Jarmusch’s unique film Paterson starring Adam Driver & Golshifteh Farahani. Phil saw A United Kingdom, the based-on-a-true story romantic drama with Rosamund Pike & David Oyelowo, and we also cover some extra bits and bobs, including your emails and tweets – keep ’em coming on firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter.
