This week on End Credits, we remember the 90s. For some of us, the 90s are not so easy to forget having lived there, and nostalgia comes to stay in the second half of this week’s show with Kid 90. Speaking of nostalgia, the first part of the show is dedicated to one of Hollywood’s most bankable players with 25 movies over 60 years, and counting: Bond, James Bond.
This Wednesday, September 29, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
Run the Series: Jams Bond Part 1 of 2. The 25th James Bond movie, No Time to Die, comes out next month. It’s the latest entry in the longest running ongoing film series in Hollywood history, and that means it’s had a lot of ups and downs along the way. So let’s separate the ups from the downs in this two-part “Run the Series” entry. In part one, we’ll cover voodoo, diamonds, Nick Nack, most of the Brosnan oeuvre, and, most consequentially, Bond! In! Space!
REVIEW: Kid 90 (2021). In the 80s, Soleil Moon Frye starred in a sitcom called Punky Brewster but the real show happened in the 90s as a teenage Soleil filmed her famous friends as they struggled to grow up against the bright lights of Hollywood. Not all of them made it. Some 30 years later, Soleil opened her time capsule, which featured hours of raw footage, saved voice mail messages, and deeply candid diary entries, and put together a documentary that speaks to not just 90s teen pop culture, but the freedom in coming of age in pre-internet times.
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
