This week on End Credits we roll a natural 20. Do you know what that means? Then you’re probably very acquainted with the subject matter that our movie this week is based on. We ventured back out to the theatre to see the new fantasy movie Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves, and we’re also going to talk other, different fantasy movies too.
This Wednesday, April 5, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
Practically Magic. Fantasy movies. They sound simple enough, but they’re hard to pull off, and the genre is about more than some guys with a sword, a damsel in distress, and a man in a pointy hat casting spells. You can’t put every fantasy movie in the same box, so we will line-up some of the boxes and open then in the first part of this show to talk about all kinds of fantasy movies, some set in magic kingdoms and some set in our own modern world.
REVIEW: Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves (2023). There was once an attempt to make the role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons into a movie franchise and it did not go well. So we’re now doing take two, and if the reviews already posted are to be believed, it seems like they got it right this time. Shall we believe the hype? You may as this week we look at the dawn of another movie franchise, ably made by “The Johns” – Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley – and starring Chris Pine leading a motley crew of well-meaning mystics and fighters across a fantasy land.
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
