This week on End Credits, we’re going to enjoy a taste of summer as usual, still watching movies at home, but watching movies that best suit a summer’s day at the multiplex. On this episode, we’re going to review The Old Guard, which is the Netflix version of a summer blockbuster, and before that, we’re going to look at all the potential blockbusters Spielberg never made.
This Wednesday, August 5, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
Uneven Stevens Epilogue. For the last few weeks, we’ve been ranking all of Steven Spielberg’s films from worst to best, but with nearly 50 years in the business, Spielberg’s been attached to a lot of different projects over the years. So as an addendum to our Spielberg ranking, we’ve got one more list: the Top 10 Spielberg projects that Spielberg never made, or got made by someone else!
REVIEW: The Old Guard (2020). Look at that picture at the top. Now that is a group of badasses, right? Lead by the Queen of Action herself, Charlize Theron, The Old Guard is Netflix’s latest entry in the big Hollywood summer action game and features Theron’s Andy leading a quintet of immortal warriors in a modern world where they can no long hide in the shadows. Sounds like the start of a beautiful franchise, but does this sure to be part one of a series get us hooked?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
