This week on End Credits, we’re all about the movies. Seriously though, when are we not about the movies? But this week, we’re reviewing a movie that’s about movies, a good old fashioned comedy about the absurdities of the film business. On this show, we’re reviewing the satire Official Competition, and we’re also talking about some of the movies that never happened.
This Wednesday, September 7, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
The Never Wases. The movie business can be hard and fickle, and for every movie that does somehow make it to the light of the movie screen, there are tons of movies that were never meant to be. Before this week’s review, we’re going to scour all the lost scripts, urban legends, and crazy production rumours to talk about the greatest movies never made, from an action star’s turn as a famous poet, to a famous ghost’s tropical adventure.
REVIEW: Official Competition (2022). From Toronto to Venice, film festival season is upon us. It’s the time of the year that we start getting all the important movies, even if they’re just self-important. In this spirit, we’re introduced to the three main characters of Official Competition: A movie star trying to be taken seriously, a serious actor trying to find some mainstream acclaim, the avant garde director that’s brought them both together to adapt a popular novel and feed the ego of a rich producer. It’s a Hollywood story ripe for satire, so just how ripe is it?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
