This week on End Credits, we look to the sky! Ever notice how the Moon’s just hanging up their daring us to visit? Well, there was a time humans went to the moon, and this week’s featured movie is a loving remembrance of that particular era. We’re reviewing the latest Netflix hit, Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood and we’re talking about other trips to the Moon.
This Wednesday, April 13, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
To the Moon! Taking a jaunty trip to the Moon is literally the plot of one of the oldest surviving movies, which also makes it one of the most influential in the history of cinema. Before getting into this week’s movie, which has its own trip to the Moon, we will talk about some of our favourite previous trips out in space, from spy adventures, to documentaries, to found footage movies about lost Moon missions, it’s a moon-a-palooza!
REVIEW: Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood (2022). In July 1969, men from the Earth first set foot upon the Moon, but before that NASA sent a kid because they built the cabin of the lunar lander too small. This is the idea behind Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood, the new film from Richard Linklater that’s part nostalgia trip, part sci-fi fantasy, and part coming-of-age story. Watch as a young man named Stan watches the Moon landing on TV, and experiences it for himself, but what about the experience of watching this film?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
