Three non-Oscar films this week to mix it up! Laurie saw Matt Damon in Alexander Payne’s Downsizing, Eddie Redmayne in Nick Park’s latest stop-motion feature Early Man, and Chris Hemsworth attempting to sound American in Nicolai Fuglsig’s directorial debut 12 Strong. No Phil this week, it’s a sort-of-pilot for a change-up in format – tell us what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros. Thanks for listening!
We’re back with 3 blockbusting cinematic adventures! Laurie & Phil both saw Thor’s 3rd solo outing boasting a slightly new direction from the much-buzzed-about Taika Waititi. Laurie saw emotional true story Breathe with Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy, while Phil caught Happy Death Day in time for Halloween. We also chat a little about the (old) news that The Matrix might be in line for a reboot, and suggest an alternative way forwards for studios looking to make a quick buck from an old idea. Listen to the end for your emails and tweets, and keep them coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros – thanks for tuning back in!
So much to say! Michael Bay directs the 5th (and last?) robots-in-disguise film, Transformers: The Last Knight, while we also cover Chris Evans in Gifted and Luke Wilson in animated feature Rock Dog. Two big movie news stories make the cut, with Daniel Day-Lewis‘s shock retirement, and Disney cutting ties with acclaimed directing duo Phil Lord & Chris Miller. WWBW has The Sweetest Thing (2002) and Thor: The Dark World (2013), and we also cram in some Movie Love/Hate thoughts on elderly characters, on top of all your emails and tweets. Big show!
