The global pandemic continues, and a third COVID wave currently sweeps our part of the world. But there's hope on the horizon. The vaccine rollout is accelerating, and a recent poll suggests more than 60 percent of people are willing to go to the movies again.
What's all this got to do with the latest podcast... From The Basement? Well, this week we're talking the upcoming Kamloops Film Festival with society director Dusan Magdolen!
The festival goes online when it kicks off this Wednesday, April 21, and heads to the drive in. Dusan reveals some of the festival highlights, how people can watch at home, and more. This might not mean much to our global listeners, but it's a big deal for local movie fans. And what Dusan and company are doing could change the face of film festivals post pandemic.
But this isn't a talk show, so to speak. Jason and Shawn got movies to review... which I guess, given this is a podcast and all, means this really is a talk show... Anyway, the Dynamic Duo take on Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer in Netflix's Thunder Force, the latest season of Prank Encounters, and a Liam Neeson action movie.
Yup, Liam Neeson is still making action movies.
