On this week’s edition of End Credits we mix up the format. For the first half of the show, to mark a very special occasion, we will dive into Canadian cinema and pick a few titles any Canadian cinephile worth their salt should definitely check out. In the second half of the show, we’ll talk about a movie that’s an assault on good taste, or at the very least severely damages it.
This Wednesday, June 28, at 8 am, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
1) A Canada Watch List. To mark the 150th birthday of Canada this weekend, we’ll take the first half of the show to build a list of great Canadian movies to watch over the holiday long weekend. Hope you like horror. Because Candice went all scary movies in her five recommendations. Adam, meanwhile, goes a little artsy-fartsy with some recent picks and Canadian classics covering comedy, drama, and independent cinema. We also had one film in common on our lists, but you’ll have to listen to the show to get all the titles and some hints on where you can find them.
REVIEW: Transformers: The Last Knight (2017). In this newest Transformers movie, we learn that the robots disguised as cars, planes and other machines have been in the background of Earth history since long before humans knew what a machine was. Secret histories, ancient doodads, and Sir Anthony Hopkins come together to help Mark Wahlberg and his Autobot friends prevent another world ending disaster in this latest entry which is either the last of the series, or the first of a brand new phase of Transformers movies. Somehow they’ve made five of these, and this week we look at the latest in this series of films based on the popular toy line and whatever Michael Bay thinks is cool this year.
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesdays at 8 am*.
Programming note: Next week, End Credits will be moving to its summer home of Thursday mornings for the months of July and August. Details to follow.
