Mena Massoud and Will Smith star in the new remake of ‘Aladdin’. (Disney)

0:35 Guy Ritchie directs Disney’s new live-action remake of Aladdin, starring Will Smith as the genie. Nick wasn’t overly impressed, but Fiona thought it found its feet, eventually. It was always going to be a tough ask to meet the much adored 1992 version starring Robin Williams. Aladdin is in cinemas now.

16:11 Nick’s been watching the finale of Game of Thrones, “the biggest and most important TV show of all time”. How could it possibly have met fans’ sky-high expectations? Nick and Fiona discuss TV finales in general, including from The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Six Feet Under, Seinfeld and The Wire, and why so many of them are so terrible.

23:21 Fiona’s been watching new movie, Wine Country in which a bunch of women friends gather for a 50th birthday in California’s Napa Valley. Starring Amy Poehler (who also directed) and Rachel Dratch, it’s a story about unresolved tensions and the beauty of friendship. Tina Fey, Melissa McCarthy and others make cameo appearances. Wine Country is now showing on Netflix.
