…And we’re back! This week on End Credits, we’re rested and refreshed from our summer vacation, and ready to get back to talking about the latest in pop culture and reviewing the newest movies (see what we did there), which this week will be the new Amazon Prime offering Annette. Before that, we’re going to talk about some of the other movies coming soon.
This Wednesday, September 1, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
Fall Preview Part 1. Fall is here! Sort of. The unofficial beginning of fall is just after the Labour Day weekend, but we will start things off post-summer break with a look at all the movies coming out in the next few months (COVID permitting). In part one, we will look at the movies coming out in September and October, from the rise of a new Marvel hero, to the return of Bond, and another lavish adaptation about that sci-fi book no one really understands.
REVIEW: Annette (2021). As this year’s opening movie at the Cannes Film Festival, Annette seemed to be practically spoofing the idea of the hot, eccentric art house film festival darling. Starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard, Annette is a rock opera featuring the music of Sparks, and follows a celebrity couple who’s perfect world starts to fray with the birth of their titular daughter, who’s played by a haunting marionette. It’s got great music, great actors, and it looks great on screen, but does it hit all the highnotes for the audience (and our critics)?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
