It’s another week of End Credits, and another review of a would-be franchise just waiting for us to cast our critical eye down upon it. Yes, we will tackle The Girl in the Spider’s Web, and before that, we’ll try and lighten things up by talking about some of our favourite cartoons, ones of the 21st century variety.
This Wednesday, November 14, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
Animation Fascination. The Grinch opened in theatres nationwide this week, another animated hit in a series of new and exciting cartoon hits. Of course, cartoons have changed technically speaking. Computer generated animation is the new art form, and has been growing in capability and technicality since Toy Story first hit the big screen in 1995. So this week, our panel will recount their five favourite CG animated films (so far).
REVIEW: The Girl in the Spider’s Web (2018). Based on the Swedish novel series that started with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, master hacker Lisbeth Salander is back, and she’s here to save the world. Claire Foy gives up The Crown for a Dragon Tattoo and a Ducati as she zips around Stockholm foiling government spies and getting revenge on very bad men. But can Foy keep the Tattoo alive and build a new franchise, or are we overestimating the need for a cyberpunk Jane Bond?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
