This week on End Credits, we get baked… about some great movies! What did you think we mean? Anyway, we’re going on a trip and we’re staying at the El Royale where there hopefully won’t be any Bad Times. Also, we’re going to talk about the surprising comeback of James Gunn, 10 years of Twilight, and Tim’s favourite scary movies. Maybe some baking’s not a bad idea…
This Wednesday, October 17, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
Gunn Intended. It was about four months ago that old, inappropriate tweets by director James Gunn sunk his involvement in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, so in the great comics tradition, it looks like Gunn is moving from Marvel, to DC. Gunn is now in talks to write, and maybe direct, the sequel to Suicide Squad, a movie often criticized for being a Guardians rip-off. Will Gunn find his Marvel redemption by working for the distinguished competition?
Twilight Ten. Can you believe that Twilight is turning 10 years old? The one decade anniversary of the Catherine Hardwicke film based on the Stephanie Meyer vampire romance novel is actually next month, but the occasion was recently mark at New York Comic Con. Twilight was a phenom, but five years after the release of the final film in the series what happened to all that passion and obsession? We’ll try hard to figure out where the Twi-hards are.
What Are Your Favourite Scary Movies? (The Tim Edition). Halloween creeps ever closer, so we’ll tackle another slate of scary movies this week by getting Tim’s Top Five. On this list, you’ll find a classic by two masters, a potential devil baby, some mysterious disappearances, one of the greatest slashers of all time, and the epitome of the word “Lynchian”.
REVIEW: Bad Times at the El Royale (2018). Seven strangers converge on a kitschy hotel that sits on the California/Nevada border, and each of them has a secret their desperate the others don’t find out about. And then the storm comes… Like his Cabin in the Woods, Drew Goddard delivers another genre-bending movie experience that borrows from Quentin Tanantino, David Fincher, Agatha Christie, and all set to the tunes of the greatest 60s jukebox you’ve ever heard. So is Bad Times a good time for the movie viewer?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
