It’s back to what’s new this week with End Credits! Well, halfway new. While we were off last week, we let a *big* anniversary sail by, and we make up for that this week by going back to 1998 for a story of sex, adventure, and bowling. For the second half, we bring things back to wholesome with the newest Disney movie with a distinctly different flavour.
This Wednesday, March 14, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
1) Abiding for 20 Years. A movie released on March 6, 1998 changed life forever! Well, maybe it just changed the lives of some enthusiastic movie geeks. Celebrating 20 years of The Big Lebowski this week, we look back on not just a cult classic, but a classic in every sense; the inspirational not-true story of a Dude, a rug, and not-a-kidnapping. Filled with great characters, great performances, and great one-liners, The Big Lebowski is the epitome of the Coen Brothers aesthetic, and remains one of their best, if not their best film. This week, we grab a White Russian and celebrate.
REVIEW: A Wrinkle in Time (2018). The Madeleine L’Engle novel was said to be unfilmable, but then Ava DuVernay came along… The children’s classic gets the full-scale Disney treatment thanks to the Selma director, and the assistance of the Queen of All Media Oprah Winfrey, who tell the tale of three adventurous kids who traverse time and space with three magical helpers to find their scientist dad who’s the prisoner of an evil force. A Wrinkle in Time has got everything you need: girl power, science power, and positivity galore, but does it deliver on its promise?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Thursday at 10 am.
