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!
Phil saw Kathryn Bigelow’s latest heavy-hitting drama Detroit, with John Boyega and Will Poulter, and also caught Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in The Dark Tower, adapting Stephen King’s hugely popular series for the big screen. Laurie saw Bill Nighy and Olivia Cooke prance about in Jane Goldman’s adaptation of Stephen Ackroyd’s novel, The Limehouse Golem, and he brings Road House with Patrick Swayze to the table for What We’ve Been Watching. Phil also offers up his own views on Colossal with Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis, and we’ve got all your emails and tweets to read out too. Send your thoughts and ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter – thanks for listening!
Can Bloom still charm the room? Can the Boosh still amuse your bouche? OK, that last one makes no sense. Laurie saw Julian Barratt’s quirky British comedy Mindhorn and caught Orlando Bloom and Noomi Rapace in espionage thriller Unlocked too. Phil gives his thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2, and WWBW covers Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and the Swedish version of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. We also throw a question your way – can you think of any great visionary film moments from Directors? Thanks for staying in touch on email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter!
