So many films to chat about! Phil saw The Post, Coco, 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri and even Darkest Hour to boot – while Laurie saw all o’ thems plus The Commuter and A Woman’s Life. A veritable cinematic bonanza of reviews and chuckles this week, plus some news about a format change going forwards! Thanks for emailing and tweeting, especially while we’ve had to be slightly irregular over the last couple of months. Keep your thoughts coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros – thanks for listening!
Season 3 is here! We dive right into Jumanji’s reboot with Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart & Jack Black, Pitch Perfect 3 with Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, and Stronger with Jake Gyllenhaal. We also take a look at Nancy Myers’ It’s Complicated with Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin, and Japanese anime sensation Your Name for What We’ve Been Watching, and Phil takes us on a strange tangent, asking – if you’re being honest – is Mary Poppins a fun character? Keep your emails and tweets coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros. Thanks for listening – Happy New Year!
Steven Soderbergh returns from a 4-year retirement to direct his self-admitted ‘anti-glam’ Ocean’s 11 in Logan Lucky, with Channing Tatum, Adam Driver & Daniel Craig – is it worth a watch? Laurie went to see it, and also caught Tom Cruise trying something a little different in Doug Liman’s based-on-real-events drug story American Made. We take a brief look at Ewan McGregor’s career and touch on the announced Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars feature, and Phil takes us through Nora Ephron’s comedy-lifestyle flick Julie & Julia, with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. Check out the Dunkirk special for our in-depth review of Christopher Nolan’s latest epic, as well as all your emails and tweets on it. Thanks for listening!
