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.
This Thursday, November 23, at 10 am, Adam A. Donaldson and guest co-host Amy Chop will discuss:
REVIEW: Justice League (2017). In a world this bad, one superhero team isn’t enough. As Marvel gets ready for the third Avengers adventure, the DC Universe finally brings together the Justice League in a highly anticipated entry that is either going to make or break the studios’ plans for its ongoing superhero series of films. Facing imminent invasion, Batman and Wonder Woman seek out new friends in the form of The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman, as the villainous Steppenwolf seeks out three mysterious boxes he can use to bring about the end of the world. Violence ensues, but not so much darkness and grim thanks to a course correction from director Zack Snyder. But is it enough to save a franchise?
INTERVIEW: Chris Cigolea, Guelph Concert Band. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and love it or hate it, it’s also a time with a pretty distinctive soundtrack. ‘Tis the season for Christmas music, and the Guelph Concert Band is going to perform some songs this weekend from some of your favourite Christmas Movies. As he gets ready for the annual performance, the Guelph Concert Band’s artistic director and conductor Chris Cigolea joins us to talk about putting this year’s showcase together, how he chose the songs that he did, and some of his favorite Christmas movies. It’s a good lead-in for next week’s show, which is all about Christmas Movies. “Christmas at the Movies” will be performed at the E.L. Fox Theatre of John F. Ross Secondary School on Sunday November 26 at 3 pm. You can get tickets over at Eventbrite.
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Thursday at 10 am.
