This week on End Credits, we dive again into the world of celebrity scandal, but this one is also a true crime story and a social justice case. We’re going to talk about the issues raised in the new Netflix documentary Britney Vs Spears, and we’re going to cover the back half of the James Bond movie series in our ultimate ranking of the films featuring Britain’s greatest spy.
This Wednesday, October 6, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
Run the Series: Jams Bond Part 2 of 2. This weekend, No Time to Die opens in theatres everywhere, the 25th in the series of canon James Bond movies. Some have been good, some have been bad, most have been okay, but this week, we’re going to get into the Top 12. There’s a lot of Sean Connery here, and so is the reboot that brought us Daniel Craig, the last real Cold War centric Bond, and the iconic one-off where 007 was played by an Australian male model.
REVIEW: Britney Vs Spears (2021). There’s been a cottage industry of documentaries about Britney Spears and the conservancy she’s been under for the last 13 years; the “Free Britney” movement has been well represented on a lot of streaming platforms. In this new Netflix doc, filmmaker Erin Lee Carr focuses not on Britney, but the messed up legal circumstances that effectively put the Princess of Pop under the thumb of her father, and, allegedly, his abuses. So does “Free Britney” benefit from her story getting the Netflix true crime treatment?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
