This week on End Credits, we’re looking up. He raise our eyes to the skies, but failing that, we will raise them to the big screen again as we go back to theatres for the latest movie from horror maestro Jordan Peele. Yes, we’re reviewing Nope, Peele’s third movie, and speaking of third movies we’ll hit IMDb to look at how other directors tackled their number threes.
This Wednesday, July 27, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
Big Threes. This week we’re reviewing the third movie from Jordan Peele, and that got us thinking about other third movies. By the time a director gets to their third movie, they’re either on a course for long-term creative success or that they’ve maybe found a groove that points to where their career is going in the future. This week, we will look at famous threes, from a Quebec filmmaker’s take on a real-life tragedy to a little seen doc from the director of Shaft.
REVIEW: Nope (2022). Another Jordan Peele mystery box? Yes, please! In Nope, Peele takes us to a California horse ranch where two siblings are trying to keep the family business going. The serenity of the ranch though is interrupted by something in the skies, something not of this world, and something that everyone in the area wants a piece of in order to achieve fame and/or glory. Peele, maker of other elevated horror head-scratchers like Get Out and Us now takes us to another close encounter, but does the director still have it for his biggest movie yet?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
