End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday April 18, 2018

We’re going to keep things very, very quiet this week on End Credits. We’re going to review the smash hit new horror film A Quiet Place, which even has audiences holding their breath, but before that, we’re going to talk about some important news items. We’ll talk about that Rob Ford movie that’s not a Rob Ford movie, the spoiler stunt for everyone’s favourite TV western, and the problem with Apu. Yes, that Apu.

This week on End Credits, we go from virtual reality to something like a reality. Can you make a movie on an iPhone? Tangerine proved you can, but now a certified auteur like Steven Soderbergh is getting in on the act. Not bad for a guy that said he was quitting movies, and has released two in the 10 months this show’s been in existence. We’ll talk about the works of Soderbergh, and we’ll talk about his latest work, the thriller Unsane. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday April 11, 2018”

This week on End Credits it’s all Spielberg, all the time! At least for the one hour our show’s on the air. We’re reviewing the latest film from Steven Spielberg, Ready Player One, which exists in no small part because of the work of one, Steven Spielberg. So to cue up this week’s review, we will look at the very lengthy, and very accomplished filmography of Spielberg, and try and find not just the big gold nuggets, but some smaller gold nuggets that are just as good.

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 28, 2018

This week on End Credits, we deal with the culture clash, and not just one culture clash, but many culture clashes. We got Hollywood wanting Chinese cash clashing with China wanting to keep their own cash. We’ve got a very famous director clashing with the changing face of the movie business. And we’ve got time clashing with the fact we’re getting older. Most importantly, our movie of the week might be clashing with itself, not to mention the dreaded “A” word considering our woke time when we talk about culture.

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 21, 2018

Welcome to the future! End Credits this week talks about an exciting new area of intellectual property, or I.P., that will form the basis of Hollywood franchises of tomorrow: video games! Hilariously, despite the widespread popularity of video games – as evidenced by the fact that the industry makes twice as much money as all the movies at the box office – Hollywood has yet to find a way to adapt the material. This week on the show, we take a closer look… Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 21, 2018”

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 14, 2018

It’s back to what’s new this week with End Credits! Well, halfway new. While we were off last week, we let a *big* anniversary sail by, and we make up for that this week by going back to 1998 for a story of sex, adventure, and bowling. For the second half, we bring things back to wholesome with the newest Disney movie with a distinctly different flavour. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 14, 2018”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday March 1, 2018

This week on End Credits, we go to the upper end of mainstream, before coming back down to the helm of the discerning cinephile. Try not to get whiplash as we go along. First, we will take the glitz and glam out of the Oscars by talking about the base economics of winners and losers for the 90th annual awards, and then we will dive into an alien world right here on Earth, in the complex yet satisfying world of hard science fiction brought to you by the new film, Annihilation. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday March 1, 2018”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday February 22, 2018

This week, End Credits gets back into superhero mode! After a long three month drought without any capes and powers, we get back into the swing of things with a movie that’s definitely gong to break a few barriers, Black Panther. In the news, we’ll talk about a superhero director that’s not having such a good time, a legendary director that’s got cashflow issues, and a documentary director that’s having politics interfere with his potential awards glory.
