End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday February 1, 2023 (Episode #282)

This week on End Credits, it’s playtime! We’re finally catching up with the biggest hit of 2023 (so far) by making friends with M3GAN (pronounced “Megan” if you’re unaware), you’re new best friend or worst enemy depending on what side of her programming you’re on. And speaking of friends and enemies, we’re going to talk about the Oscar nominations.

This Wednesday, February 1, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:

Oscars So Trite? The Oscar nominations were announced last week, and if you were a fan of Everything Everywhere All At Once, The Fabelmans, Elvis, and All Quiet on the Western Front, you had a good day. On the other hand, there were some definite snubs, and the most notable was a distinct lack of women nominees for Best Director after women have won the last two years in a row. We’ll break down the categories with the hits, the misses, and the likely-to-wins.

REVIEW: M3GAN (2023). An early social media phenom for the year, M3GAN came out of the gates as the first must-see hit of 2023. That should hardly be surprising, every couple of months there’s a new horror movie from Blumhouse eager to receive the warm embrace of the audience, but might there be something special about M3GAN? We’ve gotten killer robot movies before, and killer doll movies, but M3GAN combines the two thanks to an inspiration from Conjuring godfather James Wan so is M3GAN bigger than the hype and ready to be your friend till the end (credits)?

End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
