End Credits Show Notes for Thursday October 12, 2017

This week’s panel on End Credits has seen things you people wouldn’t believe… We have not seen attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, and we haven’t watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate, but we did watch Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049 back-to-back. We’ll look at the lessons we learned from what is arguably Ridley Scott’s greatest film, and how they apply to Denis Villeneuve’s audacious follow-up that dares to go where no filmmaker has gone before. Or is that another franchise? Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday October 12, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday October 5, 2017

The impossible is finally happening this week on End Credits. For instance, we’ll review a Tom Cruise movie where everyone’s favourite self-serve stuntman finds himself in a role where he’s not on cruise control (pun intended). In the news, a certain sequel series finally begins production, although the jury’s still out for cynics as to whether or not we’ll ever see it, and Netflix may be home to the new Beachcombers, or a similarly appropriate piece of TV Canadiana. Finally, more bad news if you’re hoping that we’ve finally reached the bottom of the harassment barrel.  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday October 5, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday September 28, 2017

This week on End Credits, we tackle our first documentary review. Now one could argue that we go to the movies to escape real-life issues, but documentaries do very well going into the issues we don’t see on the news, and deeper into the issues that we do see. To wit, this week we review the sequel to An Inconvenient Truth to learn whether or not we’ve solved climate change, and how much we owe its resolution to Al Gore. Before that though, the crew will review some of their favourite docs of all time (or right now).  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday September 28, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday September 20, 2017

This week on End Credits we’re getting oblique and mysterious with plenty of disturbing imagery. We’re reviewing the latest Darren Aronofsky movie, which features a mysterious exclamation point for some reason, and we’re talking the latest movie news including bad bloggers, unpopular choices to direct Star Wars, and a franchise that never seems to end no matter how much we want it to. All that, plus one of our panelists comes back to the show to tell us what he’s been up to lately. (It’s TIFF related!) Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday September 20, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday September 13, 2017

You’ll float too! But, you know, in a good way, as End Credits moves to its new old time slot in the morning of the middle of the week to make sure that you kick off your hump day right! How will we do that? With a review of a new movie and a discussion of movie news. This week, we’re going to look at the newest advice for making good video game movies, the newest instance of white-washed casting in the films, and the newest Star Wars director to be fired. All that, and a happy clown and the seven kids that love him on this first episode of our fall slate.  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday September 13, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday August 31, 2017

This week on End Credits, we issue a death note… to summer! Yes, it’s our last show of the summer, and it’s our last show in our temporary Thursday time slot, and we tee up the fall with a delightful new horror pick about teens that kill people magically with the help of a demon. In other news, or rather *the *news, this week, we talk about some marriage drama, the changing way we see movies, and the perfectly stupid idea of telling a super-villain’s origin story.  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday August 31, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday August 24, 2017

This week’s episode of End Credits is going to be sick. Big sick! In the last days of summer as we try to find something to get excited about, we’ll review the wonderful new romantic comedy The Big Sick. And speaking of comedy, we spend the first half of the show trying to remember if there’s anything good from this summer, and it turns out there just might be.  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday August 24, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday August 17, 2017

For the next couple of weeks on End Credits, we’re going to play catch-up on some indie hits from the summer, and we’re starting with the vexingly unconventional haunted house drama A Ghost Story, which will surely generate some strong opinions from the panel. In the news, we’ll talk about how the House of Mouse is considering its next phase of global domination, whether Judd Apatow has the answer to solve movie comedy, and whether Titanic remains unsinkable after almost two decades.  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday August 17, 2017”
