We both saw Kingsman: The Golden Circle, reuniting most of the original cast for Matthew Vaughn’s sequel and hopeful franchise starter; how does it hold up? Phil managed to catch Shia LaBeouf in sports docu-drama Borg McEnroe, and WWBW features Milla Jovovich in Ultraviolet, Josh Hartnett & Lucy Liu in Lucky Number Slevin, and Will Ferrell & Emma Thompson in Stranger Than Fiction. We even squeezed in time to chat about the forgotten art of movie theme songs a la ‘Kiss from a Rose’ by Seal. Listen out for your emails & tweets towards the end of the show, and keep them coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros – thanks for tuning in!
The gas-guzzling franchise returns for more ridiculous action fun, but has it finally jumped the shark? Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson & Charlize Theron put the pedal to the metal. In other news, Jude Law has been announced as young Dumbledore, so we give our two wizarding cents. We’ve also got quick reviews of Paul Verhoeven’s Elle with Oscar-nominated Isabelle Huppert, Trespass Against Us with Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson, and four WWBW reviews with Kingsman: The Secret Service, American Hustle, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And of course, your emails and tweets. There you go, more film stuff than you can shake a stick at! Keep in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – thanks for listening!
Only one Oscar nom this week – Laurie saw Maren Ade’s Toni Erdmann, up for Best Foreign Language Film. Phil trotted off to see animated animals go X Factor in Garth Jennings’ Sing, and Laurie also went to see Matthew McConaughey transform for Stephen Gaghan’s faux-biopic Gold. Movie News briefly touches on Ben Affleck’s announcement that he is no longer in line to direct DC’s next Batman, and Laurie has a mystery new feature to add too!
