This week on End Credits, we’re watching the clock. Just in time for the start of the summer movie season, we’re staying at home to watch the new Netflix time travel adventure The Adam Project. And time travel sounds like magic, right? Well, speaking of magic, we will spend the first part of the show talking about our favourite wizards another other magic-users.
This Wednesday, May 4, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
The Wizards and Us. This week, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness opens in theatres everywhere, which got us thinking about all our favourite movie wizards. It turns out that the term “wizard” is tough to define, are witches wizards? Are magicians? Are Jedis? For our purposes today, let’s say “yes” and as we recount our favourite wizards, we will look to the realms of fantasy, animation, superheroes, and evil stepmothers.
REVIEW: The Adam Project (2022). You may have heard that Netflix has been having a hard time of it lately. The streamer might have 99 problems right now, but The Adam Project ain’t one. The latest film from Shawn Levy and starring Ryan Reynolds (the team behind Free Guy), tells the story of a time traveller who runs into his younger self while on a rescue mission to save his wife whose stuck in the past. The film looks slick and fun, but it’s also got the immeasurable appeal of Reynolds, Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo, so it’s a winner, right?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
