Hey, look! It’s another bonus Friday episode of Someone Else’s Movie, this one featuring the mellifulous tones of John Rhys-Davies — you know, Sallah from Raiders of the Lost Ark, Gimli from The Lord of the Rings, and so on. Beloved figure, quite the raconteur, and now here to discuss last year’s Tolkien biopic because, well.
Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Google Play and Stitcher and get it immediately, or download the episode directly from the web. It’s a very short episode, but just lose yourself in the man’s voice for twenty minutes. Totally worth it.
And then maybe check out today’s new episode of NOW What, in which Rad Simonpillai, Stephanie Hinds and I talk about COVID being the latest challenge to Toronto’s Carnival, and all the other obstacles the festival has overcome since its creation in 1967.
Also! Writing! I ran down TIFF’s program announcement and the Inside Out’s scheduling release, and reviewed the second season of The Umbrella Academy (ugh) and Jay Baruchel’s messy, compelling new horror film Random Acts of Violence (good!). And later today I’ll add the NOW VOD roundup, because I am a conscientious person. [Update: Added!]
Enjoy the long weekend! Go learn an ancient language or something, that’ll be fun.
