This week on End Credits, we’re getting excited! Look at the top line to see why, but next week is going to be a pretty big episode of the show. In the meantime, we’ve got something big for this week’s show, monsters! We’re going to review the post-apocalyptic romance fantasy Love & Monsters, and we’re going to rewind to the very busy summer of 1985 in our wayback segment.
This Wednesday, May 19, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
Summer Lovin’ Part 3: 1985. In our revisit of great summer movie seasons of the past, we’ve made it to the middle of the 80s. The blockbuster mentality has been firmly established, and in 1985, a common theme involved young kids going on big adventures to space, with robots, with pirate ships buried under their town. It was the summer of the Future, and it was the Day of the Dead plus so much more. Let us revisit the jam-packed movie season from the summer of ’85!
REVIEW: Love & Monsters (2020). We all know what it’s like to spend a lot of time inside. We know what’s like to be locked down, stuck with the same people, and getting uncomfortably close because of some existential threat outside. But what if instead of COVID-19, it was mutated monsters? That’s kind of the gist behind Love & Monsters, a new Netflix hit about a nebbish young man willing to cross a monster-filled Earth to find the girlfriend he thought he lost, and do some personal growth in the process. But is it any good as a movie?
Programming Note: Next week is End Credits‘ 200th episode spectacular! Join the whole panel as we tackle the Top 5 movies we’ve review during the first 199 episodes of the show!!!
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
