This week on End Credits is all about living vicariously. Let us enjoy a long summer’s day where life is pandemic-free and hanging out with some new friends in the relationship drama If Not Now, When? Before that, we will talk about the week’s movie news where there’s a lot of talk about with new projects being worked on, and how only some of them are likely to come true.
This Wednesday, January 20, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
New Year News. January is usually a slow month for movie news, and at least that much is still true in 2021. There’s no awards season because of COVID, but there is some awards news. John Carpenter’s making horror again, just not horror movies. Kevin Smith is talking about Clerks III again, but is it more than just talk this time? Oh, and Chris Evans might be coming back to the MCU! Or not.
REVIEW: In Not Now, When? (2021). This film from Tamara Bass and Meagan Good is an exquisite fantasy where you can go to a friend’s house and hang out for hours, unmasked, in the warm ocean breeze and soft California sunshine. Of course, If Not Now, When? is not strictly a fantasy outside of COVID-adjusted terms, but it does offer a glimpse inside Black female friendship as four L.A. residents deal with life, love, and changing personal and professional circumstances that have nothing to do with mask-wearing or hand sanitizer.
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
