The Mummy, Churchill, Ma Loute, Bicentennial Man, The Host & Symbolism in Film

Phil catches up with Tom Cruise in The Mummy, kicking off Universal’s ‘Monsters Universe’ – or whatever they’re trying to call it – while Laurie saw Brian Cox take on Churchill and puzzled through Bruno Dumont’s surreal French satirical comedy Ma Loute. WWBW covers Robin Williams in Bicentennial Man and Saoirse Ronan in The Host, while we also chat a little bit about symbolism in film.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Convenient Parades, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian & Ambiguity in Film

Tom Cruise returns for a second outing as Lee Child’s macho hero Jack Reacher, this time assisted by Cobie Smulders. He’s got big shoes (and clothes) to fill – how does it measure up? We also talk convenient parades, festivals protests – you know, the ones that spring up right in the middle of a chase scene! And Phil draws our attention to some hot movie news topics including the announcement of Donald Glover as young Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo spinoff, ¬†Harrison Ford returning to Blade Runner 2049 and the intriguing changes in the 3rd trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. As if all that wasn’t enough, we end with a chat about ambiguity in movies; when it’s done well and when it really winds us up!
