End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday April 17, 2019

To listen to this week’s End Credits, all you have to do is say the magic word, “please”. Actually, you don’t even need to do that, just tune in to CFRU and listen as we review that other magic word-based movie, Shazam! Before that though, we’ll talk about a cinematic universe’s comeback, how we watch movies, Canadian Film Day, and this week in Disney news. (Yes, this is its own category now.)

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday April 10, 2019

This week on End Credits, we’ll mark the return of warmer weather and the start of summer vacation at the U of G by heading to the beach. Cinematically speaking. We’ll review the new indie comedy, The Beach Bum, and also talk about the “Clash of Kings.” Yes, that’s a Game of Thrones reference, but it’s also a reference to the fight between Hollywood writers and agents. On top of that, we’ll talk about the Joker movie, and a pair of killer doll flicks!  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday April 10, 2019”

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday April 3, 2019

This week on End Credits, we’re going to go back… Back in time! Instead of a new movies this week, we’re going to revisit an old movie. Heathers turns the big 3-0 this week, and we’re going to revisit this very complex film. Plus, we’re back on the Disney merger beat, we’ll discuss labour issues at movie theatres, and then we’ll look at another 90s remake, and the not so strange world of a filmmaker who might have lost their way.

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 27, 2019

This week on End Credits, it’s us, and it’s not us. Maybe it’s both. Who can say if we are who we say we are, or if we’re shadows of ourselves tethered to another reality? And if this preamble means nothing to you, then you weren’t part of the record breaking audience for Us this past weekend. We’ll review Jordan Peele’s latest, and talk about some other movie stuff, new films in production, and new trailers.  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 27, 2019”

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 20, 2019

This week on End Credits, we court controversy. We dig into arguably the most controversial pick for Best Picture in the last 20 years, and ask if it might be too much to expect a road move to solve racism. Yup, we’re reviewing Green Book, and we’re talking about the last days of a movie studio, another Simpsons squabble, the trailer for *that* Disney movie, and whether or not it’s okay to be okay.

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 13, 2019

This week on End Credits, we’ll call up AltaVista on AOL and download a Quicktime over dial up for directions to the mall to get a few grunge CDs… If this 90s overload isn’t an indication, we’ll come right out and say we’re reviewing Captain Marvel this week. We’re also going to engage in the ongoing debate about cinema vs streaming, and do a little video store nostalgia before talking about superhero movies, the ones coming out soon, and the ones that are not. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 13, 2019”

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 6, 2019

This week on End Credits, we’re kicking it old school! Quite nearly as old school as Hollywood gets as we’re reviewing the Laurel and Hardy bio-pic Stan & Ollie. Before that though, there’s some disturbing stuff we have to get through, more #MeToo fallout, and more drama from online trolls. On the lighter side though, we’ll talk about matters of removing symbolic rats, and movies based on actual non-action toys. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 6, 2019”

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday February 27, 2019

This week on End Credits, we’re going to fight that Oscars hangover to talk about who won what, and what we think about it. We’ll dedicated some time to our Oscars recap, and then we’ll move on to the aftermath, and what impact streaming services will have on awards season in the future. We’ll also talk about the best movie scores according to Pitchfork, and we’ll wrap up with a review of a rare non-Avatar related James Cameron project. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday February 27, 2019”

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday February 20, 2019

After a short break for Black History Month programming, End Credits returns this week with the biggest scandal of our times: why is the Academy making changes to the Oscars ceremony that sucks? Yes, this week. we’re all about the 91st annual Academy Awards in the top half of the show, and for the second half we’re going to talk about time loops and psycho killers who party like it’s your birthday!  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday February 20, 2019”
