After a short break for Black History Month programming, End Credits returns this week with the biggest scandal of our times: why is the Academy making changes to the Oscars ceremony that sucks? Yes, this week. we’re all about the 91st annual Academy Awards in the top half of the show, and for the second half we’re going to talk about time loops and psycho killers who party like it’s your birthday!
This Wednesday, February 20, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
Oscars Pee-ew. It’s been a rough Oscar season as taste makers have looked down their nose at nominees like Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Book, and the awards show itself has been dealt blow after ridiculous blow as the Oscars try (and fail) to figure out a way to stay relevant. Ahead of this Sunday’s show, we’ll make our best guesses about who will win the top prizes, and we’ll talk about the weeks (and months) of controversy leading up to the show.
REVIEW: Happy Death Day 2U (2019). Just when you thought you had vanquished the killer that you had to die over and over again and live through the same day repeatedly to discover and unmask… Yes, Happy Death Day didn’t really re-invent the wheel. It was a fun, little, low-budget, high-concept slasher, but its sequel triples down on the weird science by making our heroine Tree have to find a new psycho killer in a different dimension while reliving her birthday again and again, all while having to learn the physics to get her home. And you thought your birthday was rough.
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
