Next on the chopping block: The Crimson Rivers and Crimson Rivers: Angels of the Apocalypse


Neither Shawn nor I thought ourselves fans of foreign film before embarking on our Basement project. In the months since we've ended up watching our fair share of films from England, France, Sweden etc. Some Good, some Bad and, if you ask Shawn, some Ugly.

What's impressed me over the years is the French's flair for action films and horror. The French gave us Luc Besson, Jean Reno, High Tension, District 13, Them and many more great genre things. And tonight Shawn, myself and Radio NL reporter Shane Woodford discuss two early 2000 entries in their film cannon: The Crimson Rivers and Crimson Rivers: Angels of the Apocalypse.

Each film stars the great Jean Reno as a cop who specializes in grisly, unique crimes. Suffice to say the movies are one part Seven and another part Hollywood action film. Doesn't sound like a bad mix if done right. Tonight, we find out if they are.

We've also got great music by Audioslave, Moby and some new Newgrounds selections from Brother Shawn. Throw in movie news and the wit of Woodford and it promises to a be a fun show.

So tune in tonight at 10 p.m. on 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops or online at www.thex.ca. It's radio that's so awesome, you'll be awesomed out by its awesomeness. I know I've used that before, but it's still cool. You know it is.

And now some previews:
