We’re back with another quarantined edition of End Credits, but that doesn’t mean we can’t go worldwide. For our review this week, we’re heading to the west side of Africa for the Grand Prix-winning Atlantics, which has definitely got a flavour we haven’t had before. In terms of old news, we’ve got part two of our comic book movies list.
This Wednesday, May 6, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
The Top 40 Comic Book Movies of the Last 40 years PART 2. In 1978, Superman the Movie was released in theatres everywhere, and since then everyone’s chased that big box office money from superhero movies. For the next four weeks, we’re going to countdown the 40 greatest of the genre in the last 40 (or make that 42 years). This week, we’re doing 21 to 30.
REVIEW: Atlantics (2019). Mati Diop was the first African woman to have a movie at the Cannes Festival, and she took the second prize for this haunting romantic drama. Set in the Senegalese city of Dakar, a young couple are broken apart by cultural and economic circumstances, but supernatural happenings start to set the wrong things right as young Ada launches on a journey of self-discovery. You’ve probably never seen anything like it, but do we like it?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
