We’re kicking out the jams this week on End Credits! We know that sounds weird, but because of the national holiday in our little town this weekend, the jams will be kicked out in the style of the time. While we’re at it though, we’re going to upgrade the discussion with a review of this week’s movie, which is about a guy that becomes more human than human with some surprising results. What’s that called again?
This Wednesday, July 11, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson, Vince Masson, and Jesse Mellott will discuss:
Movie Music. With the Hillside Festival taking place in Guelph this weekend, it seemed like a good idea to dedicate some time on this week’s show to soundtracks. Now, we don’t want to step on the toes of Silver Screen Dream Machine, which you can listen to Fridays at 1 pm on CFRU, but on this episode our panelists choose their five favourite songs from the movies. It’s quite the eclectic assortment too, including movie musicals, radio hits, and unconventional jams. Get ready to Spotify!
REVIEW: Upgrade (2018). In the near future, we will all be part machine. Or at least the bad guys will. This new film from Saw co-creator Leigh Whannell sets up the story of a simple man who wishes for more luddite days, but instead wishes for revenge when his beloved wife is killed, and he’s turned into a quadriplegic. An experimental computer chip is implanted in his spine, but it does more than help him walk again. On top of that, little does our hero know that this outstanding technology is interested in more than just vengeance. He’s, you guessed it, upgraded!!!
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
