End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 21, 2018

Welcome to the future! End Credits this week talks about an exciting new area of intellectual property, or I.P., that will form the basis of Hollywood franchises of tomorrow: video games! Hilariously, despite the widespread popularity of video games – as evidenced by the fact that the industry makes twice as much money as all the movies at the box office – Hollywood has yet to find a way to adapt the material. This week on the show, we take a closer look… Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 21, 2018”

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 14, 2018

It’s back to what’s new this week with End Credits! Well, halfway new. While we were off last week, we let a *big* anniversary sail by, and we make up for that this week by going back to 1998 for a story of sex, adventure, and bowling. For the second half, we bring things back to wholesome with the newest Disney movie with a distinctly different flavour. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday March 14, 2018”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday March 1, 2018

This week on End Credits, we go to the upper end of mainstream, before coming back down to the helm of the discerning cinephile. Try not to get whiplash as we go along. First, we will take the glitz and glam out of the Oscars by talking about the base economics of winners and losers for the 90th annual awards, and then we will dive into an alien world right here on Earth, in the complex yet satisfying world of hard science fiction brought to you by the new film, Annihilation.

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday February 22, 2018

This week, End Credits gets back into superhero mode! After a long three month drought without any capes and powers, we get back into the swing of things with a movie that’s definitely gong to break a few barriers, Black Panther. In the news, we’ll talk about a superhero director that’s not having such a good time, a legendary director that’s got cashflow issues, and a documentary director that’s having politics interfere with his potential awards glory. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday February 22, 2018”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday February 15, 2018

This week on End Credits, we get a bit tied up with what’s come before, but that doesn’t mean we’re going be bound by nostalgia. If you liked these double entendres, then you’re going to love our review this week, Fifty Shades Freed. In the more PG realm of things, we talk about all those trailers that came out during, and after, the Super Bowl last week, why 1999 is still the best, and why you shouldn’t, maybe, get rid of those DVDs just yet. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday February 15, 2018”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday February 8, 2018

Just in time for the coming games in South Korea, we flashback to the events leading up to the Winter Olympics nearly 25 years ago on this week’s End Credits. We go for a skate with the new bio-pic about Tonya Harding, and we take a spin on some news items from the past week. Film critics are top of mind with one getting into Twitter trouble, and other taking a critical look at one of the most controversial subjects of the current #MeToo movement. Plus, while we’re talking about black superhero movies, why aren’t we talking more about that kickboxing vampire movie? Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday February 8, 2018”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday February 1, 2018

Things are pretty golden on this week’s End Credits. We’ve got a lot of awards stuff to talk about with the release of the Academy Award nominations (and the Razzies), and a review of the darling of this year’s Oscars, The Shape of Water. Between those two items, we’ll also talk about the remake of RoboCop that might be, and the remake of Crocodile Dundee that will never be. Sort of. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday February 1, 2018”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday January 25, 2018

This week on End Credits, we want to know what love is, but we have to deal with a lot of politics in order to get there. First, there’s the changing model of the movie theatre business, then there’s the apparent disinterest in protecting copyrights, and we wrap up with the mother of all political stories, the present White House and the reality TV star that runs it. Your treat at the end though it a review of a beautiful new movie that makes you believe that romance and love are still real things.
