Episode 88: Charlie Wilson’s War (2007)

This week we leap with Julia Roberts for the first time to 2007 war comedy Charlie Wilson’s War. This is also the first time we’ve had the chance to discuss a Tom Hanks movie. With this cast, and an Aaron Sorkin script, surely we all loved it! Didn’t we? Listen to find out…

Season 4, Episode 7

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Julia Roberts

From: Hook

Chosen by:

Actor (Scott)
Film (Mike)

Another suprise from Scott, choosing Julia Roberts instead of the expected Robin Williams. Julia isn’t too bad a choice though, with over 70 films on her resume, and at least half of them genuine classics. Mike didn’t take long to chose his pick Charlie Wilson’s War – which neither Scott or Glenn had seen…

 

 

Where are we leaping to?

Composer: James Newton Howard

To: Collateral

Chosen by:

Crew (Glenn)
Film (Scott)

Although Tom Hanks would have been a fun choice, Glenn felt it was too pridictable a path and so chose composer James Newton Howard. With almost 150 films composed this was a much more interesting leap that could have gone anywhere. Not surprisingly though, Scott picks a Tom Cruise action film…
