This week on End Credits, we’re all about the Colour. It’s not real, but it is spectacular, and it’s the basis for this week’s review, Colour Out of Space, which is now streaming on Netflix. Before that though, we will finish off our ultimate ranking of Spielberg film, and there may be some discussion about a tough weekend for loses in the film industry.
This Wednesday, July 29, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
Uneven Stevens Part 3 of 3. Forty-five years ago this summer, Steven Spielberg changed movies forever with the release of Jaws, and that was merely just another step on his run as the most successful filmmaker in 125 years of cinematic history. This week we continue the definitive* ranking of Spielberg’s films with the Top 10. (*May not actually be definitive.)
REVIEW: Colour Out of Space (2020). The works of H.P. Lovecraft have been hugely influential, but they’ve not been easily adaptable, which is why Colour Out of Space is such a unique product. Well, there’s also the mythic careers or director Richard Stanley and star Nicolas Cage, but mostly it’s the Lovecraft, and his timely interpretation of humanity as just another cog in the cosmic machine. So is this Colour as spectacular and terrifying as advertised?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
