Widow's Point is Open 24 Hours through The Pale Door

Hockey continues to dominate the Radio NL 610 AM airwaves, but there's still time for those fine purveyors of film de cinema to work their audio magic. From The Basement returns once again to pleasure your ear holes with a slew of new reviews, and an update on the local movie scene.

First up: the movies! Jason and Shawn provide a feature review on Padraig Reynolds's latest effort, the slasher flick Open 24 Hours. This one stars Vanessa Grasse in a twisted tale at an all-night gas station. Does it deliver the spooky -- and let's face it, gruesome -- goods? Stick with us!

And stick with us you shall, as The Basement Boys take on the latest Netflix original Project Power starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the ghost story Widow's Point from genre vet Greg Lamberson, and the horror/Western The Pale Door... all so you don't have to!

But wait, local movie fans, Kamloops Film Society executive director Dusan Magdolen checks off a bucket-list item by coming on the show. He will update local listeners on what the society has in store for its very popular Twin Rivers Drive-In, and plans for the Paramount Theatre, heading into fall. This is a fun conversation that should please movie fans, be they from Kamloops or elsewhere.

So tune in at 10:05 this morning. Your weekend entertainment starts here, only on Radio NL.

#CocktailHour: Slushtail

  Summer approaches, inspiring thoughts of sunshine, backyard parties, and having a tip and sip with friends.  With that in mind, I bring you this week sunny beverage. To make a slushtail, mix a can of frozen orange juice, a can of frozen lemonade (or limeade), a can of pineapple juice, a couple cups of black tea (or English Breakfast), and two cups of bourbon- such as Southern Comfort, in a pitcher.  When it's all nicely mixed, put it in the freezer until it's a nice slushy consistency. Scoop the slush into a cocktail glass, and pour in some Sprite or 7-Up.  Add a little umbrella for some frivolous fun, and a straw. Voila!  Ready to enjoy. This is a very refreshing drink.  The fruit juices, Sprite, and bourbon- when chilled makes for a great punch-like drink.  The bourbon doesn't overwhelm juices.   In fact, they are all nicely balanced in terms of flavors.  The sourness of the citrus fruits contrasts well with the slightly sweeter Southern Comfort.  It was refreshing enou

Marcus Flor vs Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

In film, there's nothing I enjoy more than passionate creativity. Compared to the sea of mediocrity surrounding it, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is practically overflowing with it. This animated movie is vibrant, kinetic, and extremely inventive with its art style. On top of all that, this is just a solid movie. It tells its story with sincerity and tact, always focusing on the important aspects of Miles' emotional journey. The script wastes no time on pointless scenes or moments, which also gives the film an energetic rhythm that draws you in. One of the other great aspects of this movie is its reinvention of the Spider-Man story. It's clever writing demonstrates a true understanding of the webslinger, and offers commentary on the current state of his movie adaptations. In the end, you get a film both Spidey fans and non-fans can enjoy. Above all other aspects, what I like most about Spider-Verse is how fun it is. It demonstrates quality animation and filmmaking doesn

Run, Bandit, Run: "Bandit: Bandit's Silver Angel" (1994)

  Tuesday rolls around with clear skies, clear lakes, and clear highways.  Along the long stretches Smokey can be found chasing the Bandit... and adventure follows close behind. After his uncle passes away, Bandit finds himself helping a beautiful widow keep their carnival afloat. But all is not as it seems with this carnival.  It hides a secret... a shiny, glittery secret that others would kill to keep for themselves... " Bandit: Bandit's Silver Angel " sees the 1990's TV movie series based on the original "Smokey and the Bandit" films come to a close.  And to be honest, it wasn't a bad send-off for the series. Brian Bloom once again brings a pleasant charm and playfulness to the character of Bandit.  While Donald O'Connor didn't get a lot of screen time, he brought quite a bit of humour to his character as Uncle Cyrus, and gave a solid impression that he's one of the few characters that could easily outwit Bandit.  Traci Lords in the role o
