This week on End Credits, we’re going to get more socially conscious. Our movie of the week is Da 5 Bloods, which, like any good Spike Lee movie, is going to educate and entertain with a robust conversation about race relations. Before we talk about the movie though, we have to talk about movie releases again. Get your calendars open, there have been some changes…
This Wednesday, June 17, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
More Musical Chairs. The continuing pandemic concerns in North America has started to wear on the already abbreviated movie season. Tenet has been pushed back a few weeks, which has started some additional moves along the calendar. We’ll talk about those moves, and we’ll talk about why drive-in theatres are mad about The King of Staten Island.
REVIEW: Da 5 Bloods (2020) – With Black Lives Matter in the news on a nightly basis, and the conversation on equality shifting rapidly, what a great time for a new Spike Lee film to enter the conversation. In Da 5 Bloods, a group of Vietnam vets return to their old battlefield to find the remains of their old C.O., and the CIA gold they buried in 1968, but can they survive each other, and the social commentary that Lee has constructed in his typical style?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
