This week’s episode of End Credits will be tearing it up, not tearing it apart. You may be thinking that there’s not much of a difference between those two things, but fans of The Room know one is very, very bad. On this episode of the show, we will review the movie based on the making of The Room, James Franco’s The Disaster Artist, and we’ll talk about some of the latest items from the world of movie news including real-life drama for a director, a trip to space for another, and 75 years of what is maybe the greatest film ever made.

It seems like all Hollywood is about these days is franchises, and it seems like this week’s End Credits is going to prove it. Well, we’ll prove it and then we’ll disprove it. In the first half of the show, we’ll talk about a cinematic universe that never came to be, an indie film festival everyone in Hollywood attends, and the latest chapter in one of the most successful film series of all time. To counter that, we’ll review a wonderful new film that is not based on any previously existing property, but is funny and touching and surprising all at the same time.

On this week’s End Credits, we take a break from our usual format to do something just as conventional: Christmas movies! You know you like to complain about their syrupy sweetness, but you just can’t help yourself, you love them anyway, right?! From elderly misers, to LA cops, to sorority sister under threat, to beleaguered bankers, to the greatest story ever told, there’s probably going to be something here to suit everyone’s taste. So start the chestnuts roasting, grab a glass of eggnog, and sit around the crackling radio for some old-timey, and post-modern, Christmas goodness!

This week, we’re shaking things up on End Credits. No, not with the content of our review, of course, as we’re reviewing another comic book movie (our fourth since starting this show), but we’ve done a couple of unusual things this week. First, we have a guest host who’s specifically being brought in to use her expertise on the movie of the week, and second, we have an interview with a local musician who’s getting ready for a special movie-centric event this weekend. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday November 23, 2017”
If you make this much news on End Credits in a week, you must be the Walt Disney Company. There are a lot concerns with Disney this week, they’re banning journalists, contemplating corporate takeovers, and creating new trilogies, and in-between, the fallout of Hollywood sex abuse scandals continues as not only is old work banned, but upcoming works now as well. All that, plus a remake of a well-known murder mystery featuring one of the most famous detectives of all time… Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday November 16, 2017”
End Credits is back! After a needed break, we’re back to business as unusual as we mark the release of one of the biggest films of the year, the latest film featuring your favourite hammer-wielding superhero. Before that though we have to slog through a week of sad news including more allegations of sex abuse in Hollywood, and a feud behind the scenes of one of your favourite franchises. But good news is here too because, apparently, video stores are making a comeback! Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday November 9, 2017”
After about 20-some odd shows in a row since launching back in June, End Credits is finally taking a week off.
Don’t be alarmed! When you tune in this Thursday at 10 am it will be an episode of the show you’ve heard before.
We’ll be back with an all-new episode next week with discussion of the latest movie news and a review of Thor: Ragnarok. Continue reading “This Thursday, You Are Not Having Deja Vu!”
A couple of weeks ago, End Credits covered the documentary An Inconvenient Sequel, which featured Al Gore on his continuing quest to solve climate change. If only he had known that several weeks later the solution would present itself in Geostorm. Okay, so “solution” may be the wrong word, especially since it predictably all goes wrong, like another movie that came out last weekend, The Snowman. We’ll talk about that movie’s director and his self-sabotage, the latest on the industry from a fan-favourite director, and how we might get a cool new animated vision of an old superhero movie idea. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday October 26, 2017”
The title “End Credits” takes on special significance this week, as a particular movie mogul seems to be seeing the end of his career. We’ll talk about the story that’s transcending the film world and forcing sober discussion on the pervasiveness of powerful men forcing themselves on women. In more pleasant news, we’ll then nerd out about the latest Star Wars trailer, and talk about the simple joys of Noah Baumbach’s newest film.
