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 firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – and thanks for listening!
Edgar Wright returns with a much-hyped genre piece; but how does it drive? / does it get in gear? / does the pedal hit the metal? (You choose the driving pun there). Laurie also saw Japanese animated feature In This Corner of the World covering Hiroshima in the 1940s, and WWBW is back with James Cameron’s Avatar and Tony Scott’s Enemy of the State starring Will Smith. Phil has a Picture Perfect up his sleeve with the Moria staircase sequence from Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, and we go through your emails and tweets too. Thanks for listening & staying in touch! Reach us at email@example.com and @superbaileybros with your thoughts.
