This week’s episode of End Credits is on the rocks, and we mean ice! This week’s review is sponsored by our newly arrived winter weather, and the new film On the Rocks, which is our first pick from Apple TV+. And since we’re sort of talking about the future, we will also consider what past science fiction and fantasy shows from the 80s, 90s and 2000s might be worthy of a reboot.
This Wednesday, November 25, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
Back to the Future. It’s a great time for 90s reboots, from the new Animaniacs, to Saved by the Bell, and also sci-fi and fantasy shows like Roswell and Charmed. But there were so many hits, some that followed space adventurers, people going to alternative Earths, and even the crew of a big submarine! So let’s play a game: what other genre masterpieces from the 1990s are worthy of a comeback?
REVIEW: On the Rocks (2020). Almost 20 years ago, Bill Murray teamed up with Sofia Coppola to make their first movie together. Lost in Translation was a critical and commercial hit, and the start of a beautiful friendship, so when Coppola and Murray team up again, you have to sit up and take notice. In the new film On the Rocks, Rashida Jones joins Murray to play daughter to his father, and together they go on a journey to self-discovery and whistling. Is it worth the ride?
