This week on End Credits, it’s a post-long weekend solo round. Fewer co-hosts means time for more movies, and this week, you’re getting a review of three very different flicks. Cartoon chipmunks will kick-off the show with more meta references than you can stand, and then we will get serious with a three-letter word. To wrap up, a trip through the multiverse to the MCU!
This Wednesday, May 25, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:
REVIEW: Chip N’ Dale: Rescue Rangers (2022). In the 1990s, two cartoon chipmunks were riding high with an eponymous TV adventure about a group of rodents that save the world. But nothing lasts forever, except nostalgia! Chip and Dale are reunited in a quest to save Monterey Jack, their fellow Rescue Ranger, from a horrible fate in the hands of crime lord [checks notes] Peter Pan. So is Rescue Rangers a movie, or is it a 90-minute ad for Disney+?
REVIEW: Men (2022). Alex Garland, maker of Ex Machina and Annihilation, returns to theatre screens with another atmospheric head scratcher. Harper (played by the always excellent Jessie Buckley) retreats to the English countryside to escape her own grief and regret for a few days, but the small town has some unsettling dark corners, and Harper may be forced to confront all that she left behind. So on a scale of 9 to 10, just how unsettling is Men?
REVIEW: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022). When we last saw Doctor Strange, we has helping Spider-Man out of a multiverse-related jam, but the multiverse isn’t finished with Marvel’s favourite wizard just yet. Benedict Cumberbatch returns as surgeon turned sorcerer for his first solo adventure in six years, joined by Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch and new hero Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez. So does the movie put a spell on us?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
