This week on End Credits we’re going to fight the power! For our review on this episode we’re going to move our streaming sight to Netflix and an Australian style western called True History of the Kelly Gang (true story: it’s not a true story). Along with that, we will also recap the week’s movie news which features a death and a firing.

End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
