Laurie & Phil have both seen Lady Bird – hear whether Greta Gerwig’s debut is as sensational as the Oscar noms suggest. Laurie also catches us up with Margot Robbie & Oscar-winning Allison Janney in I, Tonya, while WWBW covers Duncan Jones’ divisive Netflix film Mute & Anthony Hopkins vs Ryan Gosling in Fracture. We also give our brief post-Oscars thoughts, bring back an old, much-loved feature and go through your emails & tweets to boot. Stay in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – thanks for listening!
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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – thanks for tuning in!
