This week on End Credits, we’re doing one last show before a summer vacation*. Yes, it’s summer, and that means it’s a time for rock concerts and road trips, and by sheer coincidence, that’s what this week’s show is about. In a rare double review, we will talk about the new Netflix doc about Woodstock ’99 and the best homage to Texas Chainsaw Massacre you’ll ever see!
This Wednesday, August 10, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
REVIEW: Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99 (2022). In July 1999, the organizer behind the original Woodstock had the brilliant idea to do it all again for the festival’s 30th anniversary. Contrary to the lofty ambitions set out though, the ’99 redux was not remembered for peace, love and togetherness. It’s more like the exact opposite. A new three-part documentary on Netflix tackles what went wrong at Woodstock ’99 with behind the scenes insights from many of the festival’s acts and organizers. We’ll talk about whether it succeeds as an explainer.
REVIEW: X (2022). In 1974, Tobe Hooper took a bunch of unknown actors out into the middle of no where Texas to film one of the most seminal horror movies of all time on a nearly non-existent budget. Ti West’s X is chasing the long half-century influence of the Hooper classic, but its also doing something very different. Again, we follow a van full of young people through the back roads of Texas where a horrible fate awaits them. It’s not your typical horror movie, but it’s firmly baked in a lot of old favourites but does X catch us with all its twists and turns?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
