Is the pairing of Ryan Reynolds & Samuel L. Jackson buddy comedy lightning-in-a-bottle? Find out what Phil and Laurie thought of The Hitman’s Bodyguard. We also chat about Daniel Craig’s recent confirmation that he will be returning as James Bond, after much tedious speculation that Tom Hiddleston might take up the mantle, which let’s be honest, was never going to happen. Laurie’s What We’ve Been Watching films cover Richard Linklater’s A Scanner Darkly with Keanu Reeves and a rewatch of Finding Dory, and Phil gives his late thoughts to Captain Fantastic & Paterson. Thanks so much for your emails and tweets, we love getting them and reading them out on the show! Keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter.
How does Tom Hiddleston fare as a gritty adventurer in Kong’s latest reincarnation? Laurie gives a rundown of Kong: Skull Island in this mini episode along with some bonus bits and baby news. One more mini-show next week, then we’re back in action on Monday 27th – thanks for listening!
More Oscar films! Laurie saw Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge with Andrew Garfield, Phil saw Lion with Dev Patel, horror correspondent Benedict watched M. Knight Shyamalan’s possible comeback movie Split with James McAvoy, and Laurie also squeezed in xXx: Return of Xander Cage with Vin Diesel. Take a breath! We also spend a little bit of time on the Oscars action and nominations so far. Thanks for listening! Keep in touch on email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter.
