End Credits Show Notes for Thursday August 10, 2017

This week on End Credits, we go dark. It’s a very bad world out there sometimes, and we don’t just mean pseudo-post-apocalyptic universes where magic cowboys chase the sorcerer Satan across the multiverse. Yes, we are reviewing The Dark Tower this week, but we’ll also be talking about the latest digital robbery in Hollywood, how that little film festival down the 401 is shaping up this year, and why a trailer for a certain movie coming out this year might make us wish we were dead… Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday August 10, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday August 3, 2017

This week on End Credits, things are going to get hot. Atomic hot! We’ll review a new action movie where women kick butt and make it all look so easy in a world full of stupid, beatable men. It’s a perfect anecdote for the heat of summer, and if the wags are to be believed, the audience definitely needs a hit to love. Speaking of hot, we’ll talk about the controversy of a new HBO series, and how being the worst director doesn’t always mean what you think.

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday July 27, 2017

Disasters is kind of theme this week on End Credits. The movie of the week is about a military disaster, snatching victory out of the jaws of total and complete military annihilation, and to kick things off we look at another movie that turned out to be a disaster and the new movie being made about that. In between, we’ll ask some serious questions about the nature of Comic Con and the nature of the future of movies.  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday July 27, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday July 20, 2017

This week on End Credits we’ve got female issues. Or rather other people have female issues and we have to talk about them. For instance, the man that gave us Pulp Fiction, and The Hateful Eight is tired of made-up violence and wants to tackle real life incidents of monstrous murder, in this case against a Hollywood actress. And then, one critic thinks a made-up test to promote better women characters in film is destroying movies, and Disney can’t find two Middle Eastern people that can sing and dance and act out of seven billion humans on Planet Earth. And we’ll top all that off with review of a film that’s a new spin on an old theme.  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday July 20, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday July 13, 2017

This week, End Credits does what ever a radio show about movies can. Spins a web, any-size, but by web we mean a yarn, as in a way to explain something. You can’t really set theme music to it, but that’s okay. To celebrate the particular release of a certain superhero’s new film, we’ll kick the show off by digging into a genre that some people think is awesome, and other people think is ruining Hollywood, and together we’ll find some gold.  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday July 13, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Thursday July 6, 2017

Did you wake up early this morning expecting a new End Credits? Sorry, but we have a new home for the summer, and it’s Thursday mornings at 10 am! To celebrate we’re going to meditate on creativity and talk about how being creative sometimes gets you fired, especially when you’re working on a Star Wars movie, and we’ll also talk about how you’re nothing now without an extended universe. Along with that we’ll consider if its possible to win an Oscar for playing an ape, and to show there’s creativity left in the world, we’ll rave about a new car chase movie. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Thursday July 6, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday June 28, 2017

On this week’s edition of End Credits we mix up the format. For the first half of the show, to mark a very special occasion, we will dive into Canadian cinema and pick a few titles any Canadian cinephile worth their salt should definitely check out. In the second half of the show, we’ll talk about a movie that’s an assault on good taste, or at the very least severely damages it.  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday June 28, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday June 21, 2017

Now typically there’s no swearing on CFRU, but this week on End Credits we’re going to have to talk about swearing. Yippee ki yay, Mr. Falcon! This is what happens when you find a stranger in the Alps on a Monday-to-Friday plane!!! And after we talk about clean versions of certain movies, we’ll get into another mess: What do you do/say/think when a favourite actor or celebrity goes to court? And speaking of court, would you still put the director of a bad movie on trial 20 years later? Even if he was sorry? All that, and a review of a wonderful new Canadian film on this week’s show.  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday June 21, 2017”

End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday June 14, 2017

This week’s episode of End Credits goes on Cruise control. I know. Sorry, it had to be said. Before getting into the latest Mummy movie, we’ll also talk about Tom Cruise’s other pet franchise in the making, a sequel to a film more than three decades old and is very much a victim of its time. We also talk about Canadians behaving badly by smack talking their own remakes, and whether a return to allegorical apartheid in sci-fi form is in the offing.  Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday June 14, 2017”
