This week on End Credits things are going to get meta. What happens when you take the story of the world’s greatest superhero and make him a bad guy? We’ll find out when we watch Brightburn. Speaking of bad guys, we’ll talk about Hollywood’s battle against new abortion laws, and the lost meaning of Godzilla. Also, we’ll also discuss being Booksmart and what Harrison Ford is mad about now. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday June 5, 2019”
This week on End Credits, we hope you like superhero movies and Avengers and stuff, because this one is all Marvel, all the time. Or, at least all Marvel, for an hour. So this week we’re reviewing Avengers: Endgame, and before that, we’re going to look back at all the movies that came before and rank them because that’s what you do sometimes.

This week on End Credits, we court controversy. We dig into arguably the most controversial pick for Best Picture in the last 20 years, and ask if it might be too much to expect a road move to solve racism. Yup, we’re reviewing Green Book, and we’re talking about the last days of a movie studio, another Simpsons squabble, the trailer for *that* Disney movie, and whether or not it’s okay to be okay.

This week on End Credits, we’ll call up AltaVista on AOL and download a Quicktime over dial up for directions to the mall to get a few grunge CDs… If this 90s overload isn’t an indication, we’ll come right out and say we’re reviewing Captain Marvel this week. We’re also going to engage in the ongoing debate about cinema vs streaming, and do a little video store nostalgia before talking about superhero movies, the ones coming out soon, and the ones that are not.

This week on End Credits, we work our way towards the end of the year by talking about one of the year’s best films. (At least according to some critics.) We’ll turn on Netflix again to watch Alfonso Cuarón’s new film, Roma, an entry that will likely be discussed very often with Oscar season coming. Of course, the Oscars, and their lack of host, are still top of mind. We’ll talk about that, film preservation, and women in film before the review. Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday December 19, 2018”
This week on End Credits, we’re dressed to kill! We’ll, we’re actually dressed to watch Jennifer Garner kill, and kill she does in Peppermint, a new vengeance-fueled thrill ride from the guy that made Taken. Speaking of payback, we’ll also talk about the return of a supposedly washed up sitcom star, no more popular Oscar, and toxic fandom. We’ll also talk about a captain we’re all eager to salute!

This week on End Credits, we’re getting really serious. When you’re talking about the new movie by Lynne Ramsay, there’s really nothing left to do but get really serious because she’s a serious filmmaker. So maybe that’s why we’ll try and balance out those things with a little romance, or lack thereof, in comic book movies. There’s also our serious lack of a Black Widow movie, but a new Robin Hood flick is a pretty good consolation prize, right? Maybe it’s a good thing we’re being serious… Continue reading “End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday May 9, 2018”
