This week on End Credits, get some corn for popping and tune in to CFRU for a Christmas-themed review. In this edition, we’re going to (maybe) celebrate the return of Cool Santa in The Christmas Chronicles 2, and in our decidedly not Christmas-related pre-game, we will run the series on a filmmaker we don’t talk about, and that’s the first and second rule!
This Wednesday, December 9, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
Run the Series: The Films of David Fincher. This week, David Fincher’s newest film, Mank, was released on Netflix. It’s Fincher’s 11th film, and his past works have covered a wide range of topics including serial killers, fight clubs, true crime, and websites that destroy democracies. This week, we will do the impossible and rank all 10 of Fincher’s movies. Will Alien 3 finish last?*
REVIEW: The Christmas Chronicles 2. In case you didn’t know, it’s Christmastime, and your Netflix queue is full of holiday delights, and this week we will reach in and pick one. The Christmas Chronicles 2 is a sequel to the 2018 Netflix original movie featuring Kurt Russell as a rock ‘n’ roll, devil-may-care Santa, who returns for part 2 with his real-life Mrs Claus Goldie Hawn, and this time they have to thwart a mischievous elf out to ruin Christmas. Is this one a gift, or is it a lump of coal?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
