This week on End Credits, we’re going to appreciate the gift of hearing a bit more after seeing this week’s movie. Our review on this episode is the new drama Sound of Metal, which features a couple of great performances, and some excellent sound design. Less excellent though are the people we will be talking about in this week’s news items.
This Wednesday, February 24, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
Show Us the Money! Back when all theatres were open, it was a Sunday tradition to get the weekend box office numbers, but more and more studios are keeping that information to themselves. We’ll talk about that story in this week’s news section along with the new Woody Allen doc series and the improbable return of Brett Ratner with a Milli Vanilli bio-pic.
REVIEW: Sound of Metal (2020). The Oscars are still a couple of months away, but everyone’s talking about the main performance in this movie as a likely Best Actor contender. Riz Ahmed plays a heavy metal drummer who suddenly loses most of his hearing. Thrust into a new world without music, or his musical partner (played by Sophia Cooke), he has to learn a whole new way to live. So what did we make of the journey, and its central performance? Tune in and find out!
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
