New Moon Review -- Team Black!

So, Saturday night was a momentous occasion, three out of four Sinema writers went to see New Moon. Now, having read all of the books, loved them, read them again and realised they were poorly-written and advocated every archaic literary stereotype of obsessive love and damsels in distress, I didn’t hold out much hope. New Moon is also the poorest of the four books, Bella, the heroine (a term I use very loosely) spends most of the time moping about like a wet lettuce over her disappearing vampire before going slightly mad and throwing herself off cliffs and motorbikes to conjure up an image of him in her head. So why, you might ask, did I spend £6something on going to see this film? The answer is very simple—abs.

Yes, abs. The beautifully structured, bronzed stomach muscles of Taylor Launter, our resident werewolf. Jacob Black and his wolfy friends spent about 2/3’s of their screen time completely topless and man, it’s a beautiful sight. In fact it such a beautiful sight that there was a collective intake of breath from all females (and perhaps some males) in the theatre. It makes me pose the question—how could anyone ever prefer Robert Pattinson, who pales in comparison? In fact our resident editor Miss Sinema even described him as “pathetic and anaemic with weird nipples” and I can’t help but agree. Taylor Swift, Taylors boyfriend (no, its too easy!) is a very, very lucky woman that’s for sure.

But it wasn’t just Jacob Blacks body that interested me; here we finally find character with some substance! Thank god! You have Bella, the woman who only really exists for Edward Cullen, completely dependable on her male counterpart and collapses without him, she’s clumsy and reads interesting books and is hopelessly in love with Edward and that’s about where her personality ends. What a brilliant image to give to young girls! (Sort of makes me feel a little less guilty for objectifying the werewolves all the way through that movie.) And then you have Edward, the perfect man… apparently. Edward leaves Bella, alone, in the middle of the woods when its getting dark… wow he’s an absolute star! But really, how many 17 year old boys have you met like him? That’s because there aren’t any! Men will screw you over, they will try get into your pants and they aren’t supersonically gorgeous, it’s a fact of life. Out here are an army of teeny boppers all expecting their own Cullen to walk through the door. As for Jacob he is actually a person and, god forbid, he actually smiles. He has his flaws and its endearing, he’s fun and happy. Maybe it’s just me, but I prefer that over dark and brooding any day. So for some reason, like every man in the book, his heart belongs to the socially awkward Bella, but we’ll let him off for that, it’s refreshing to see someone with a personality! And what else is New Moon teaching us… kill yourself for the one you love! A great lesson!

Over all, New Moon was awful, but then I didn’t expect anymore. If you’re looking for sex appeal or just a laugh this could be the movie for you. Bella and Edward prancing through the woods, obscene kissing noises, watching Kristen Stewart fly across a room like her MTV movie award—great stuff. Me and Eileen had a great time retching at Edward’s soppiness and finding innuendo’s everywhere.

[In The Scene When Edward Leaves Bella]
Bella: I’m coming!
Me to Eileen: I bet you are.

And is it just me or does Edwards sparkles just look like he has a really bad perspiration problem?

Eileen's 'Could-Go-Either-Way' Upcoming Film Pick: Kick-Ass

It's time for the second ever Eileen's 'Could-Go-Either-Way' Upcoming Film Pick! For those of you who didn't catch the last installment, here's the short and skinny:

'Could Go Either Way': (adjective):
1. A term used to described an object, situation or idea with an indefinite outcome; that is to say, the reception and consequences of such an object, situation or idea, could be really awesome or remarkably shitty.

And I've got a corker for you this week.
Might I present:


What the Hell is it, and why Should I Care?
Kick-Ass is set be the comic-book based vigilante movie of 2010. Our young hero, Dave Livewski, takes fanboy-dom to all new levels of craziness by deciding to become a 'superhero' -of course, although he's referred to as 'superhero' in the trailer, I use the term reluctantly, as the dude as no actual superpowers or superhuman capabilities. In fact, he has no real experience or training as a vigilante. Therein lies the fun.

Hell Yes:
What makes this film different is it tries to add cheap, teen laughs to the mix- for example, when Dave (a.k.a Kick-Ass) turns up to school covers in bruises, people assume he's a gay prostitute. Crude infantile humour AND superhero goodness straight from the pages of a graphic novel? I'm in Heaven!
2. The support cast includes Clark Duke and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. That's pretty much my fantasy geek sandwich right there.
3. The visuals in the trailer have a sharp, colourful slant on NYC, that screams 'Spiderman'- you really can't fault them.

Hell No:
Didn't we already try this mix with 'Superhero Movie'? Please, please don't put me through that again.
2. Will any superhero really come close to 'Watchmen'? I honestly don't think so.
3. The trailer featured Joan Jett and the Blackhearts' 'Bad Reputation'- an awesome track, but the most generic and overused 'Kick-Ass Chick' theme tune of all time. Why not The Donnas, or Pat Benetar?

So, which will it be: blockbuster or bollocks? Only time will tell...

Song of the Day: Ready, Able by Grizzly Bear

I know I haven't done a 'Song of the Day' for a very, very long time, but guess what? I'm bringing it back, baby!
But, as a radical twist on a conventional concept, I've decided to combine today's slice of aural goodness with a wee bit of YouTube magic.
Grizzly Bear are a band we've previously expressed a lot of love for, and their music videos are no exception- particularly their latest offering, 'Ready, Able'. It's kooky, beautiful and completely nonsensical- kind of like 'Wallace and Gromit' on acid. Check it out:

Kill Bill in 1 Minute

Have you ever wished you had an encyclopaedic knowledge of films? That you could quote or summarise the plotline of any movie, at any time? There is a pretty speedy way to top-up your film knowledge:
These days, there are a wealth of YouTube videos that will give you film spoilers, but if you want a short, educational film that capture the very essence of the movie, the 'One Minute, One Take' films are you. They don't just tell you the ending of the film, oh no- they tell you the entire plot. Not only that, but they're pretty darn funny.
So, for your viewing pleasure, here's Kill Bill Parts 1 and 2 in One Minute, in One Take:

RSC Review: Twelfth Night

On October 30th, Chloe was a very lucky girl- a very lucky girl indeed. That day, I travelled to Stratford-Upon-Avon (the birthplace of Shakespeare), and got to watch a production of the classic Jacobean comedy 'Twelfth Night', performed by The Royal Shakespeare Company. Although I had watched productions of Shakespeare previously- and performed in some myself- I was a RSC virgin, so I was extremely excited. For those who don't know 'Twelfth Night' or 'What You Will', the basic story is this: twins Viola and Sebastian are shipwrecked in the strange, exotic land of Illyria, both thinking that the other has died. In order to get places in this new country, Viola dresses in a cunning disguise, posing as a man called Cesario, becoming servant and peer to the Duke Orsino. Orsino, who utters the famous line "if music be the food of love, then play on", is madly in love with Olivia, a beautiful yet frightfully morbid woman, to the point of obsession. Then it all gets very confusing as each character falls in love with each other. Oh and it involves a rather fetching pair of yellow stockings.

This particular production featured Richard Wilson, an acting veteran most famous for his role as Victor Meldrew in 'One Foot In The Grave'. For those who have no idea what that is, shall I utter his infamous catchphrase: "I DON'T BLOODY BELIEVE IT!". Whilst getting an ill-favoured reception from cut-throat theatre critics who would probably have slammed Shakespeare himself, I believe Wilson's performance was absolutely superb. He played Malvolio- the solemn, sneering servant of Olivia, who is tricked into wearing yellow stockings. To see a RADA trained, respectable actor like Richard Wilson running around the stage in a pair of egg yolk coloured stockings with a demonic smile... well, let's just say it's a sight I shall never forget.

As for the rest of the cast they acted brilliantly. Nancy Carroll played Viola and whilst playing perhaps the most feminine male I have ever seen, her performance was both entertaining and inspiring. However, the actor who made the biggest impression on me was Miltos Yerolemou who played Fester, the lovable, yet sneaky jester. It was he who had me in fits of laughter from start to finish. It always amazes me how a play written in Shakespearian prose and first performed hundreds of years ago can still make people laugh. Clearly humor is timeless. Over all, the play is definitely worth a watch, whether your a theatre buff or not. 'Twelfth Night' is not one of Shakespeare's darker, morbid plays like 'Hamlet' or 'Macbeth' or 'Othello' (which three of our writers get to see next month!), its light hearted and funny and easier to follow if you haven't studied Shakespeare.

For more information go to the RSC website here, the play runs till 21st November and there are still seats available.

5 Films To See This Winter

For many, Christmas is a time for family. For others, it's a time for presents. For some (like us), it's a time for coming in out of the cold, and spending all of our time in the nice, warm cinema. Seriously, what could be more festive?

If you want to follow our shining example, (and you do), you should check out Chloe's film picks:

The Men Who Stare At Goats
This quirky comedy sees reporter Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor) following agent Lyn Cassady (George Clooney), as he is reactivated for his next big mission: getting to the bottom of the disappearance of Bill Django (Jeff Bridges), the founder of this program. The twist? Cassady is a psychic soldier, who has been taught to walk through walls, read enemies thoughts and even kill a goat by simply staring at it. They end up at a psychic training facility led by Larry Hooper (Kevin Spacey) and Wilton finds himself playing piggy in the middle between Django’s New Earth Army and Hooper’s super soldiers. How do they make this stuff up? Well, they don’t, ‘The Men Who Stare At Goats’ is based on a true story… oh dear. This is set to hit the screens November 6th.

Where The Wild Things Are
The book that defined so many childhoods finally hits the screens. Maurice Sendak’s legendry book about imagination, adventure and fantasy tells the story of Max in his infamous wolf costume. Max is sent to bed without supper by his mother after being naughty. From his childish (yet absolutely brilliant) imagination a wild forest and roaring ocean grow where he meets ‘The Wild Things’, which, after an initial sense of scariness, turn out to be not so fearsome after all. With a killer soundtrack including a rerecording of Wake Up by Arcade Fire, which I love, this is truly a movie which will go down in history. The movie is already out in the US but hits the screens over this side of the pond on December 11th.

The Princess and The Frog
Finally, Disney takes a step back to what it does best—princesses. It’s directed by the same men (John Musker and Ron Clements) who brought us ‘Basil The Great Mouse Detective’, ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘Aladdin’ ‘Treasure Planet’ and ‘Hercules’, which are movies that basically made my childhood. It takes the classic story of ‘The Princess and the Frog’ and turns it on its head; a prince called Naveen is transformed into a frog by the evil magician Dr Faciler, and he can only turn back to his human form with a kiss from a princess. Unfortunately, he gets Tiana to kiss him, a woman he mistakes to be of the same regal status as him, she is not and soon she finds herself as Naveen’s froggy friend! Both of them then must start an epic quest to find the voodoo priestess Mama Odie, befriending a musically talented crocodile and a firefly with a love for romance on the way. This opens in the US on 11th December and finds it way over the pond (see what i did there...) early 2010.

The Lovely Bones
Perhaps one of my favourite books of all time, I am really anticipating this film debut. The movie is about Susie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan) a girl who in 1973 is raped and murdered by her next-door neighbour. She finds herself in a heaven-like place where whatever she wants appears in front of her: everything except for being with her family, or winning them some piece of mind who have no idea who has murdered their daughter. She watches as the killer, George Harvey (Stanley Tucci) plans his next kill and how her family and friends deal with their profound loss. It also stars Rachel Weisz, Mark Wahlberg and Susan Sarandon. It hits worldwide cinemas on 11th December.

It’s Complicated
A heartfelt comedy about divorce starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. Jane, Streep’s character is an independent divorced bakery owner who has finally managed to develop a good relationship with ex-husband Jake (Baldwin), who has remarried the young and attractive Agness. However things get a little complicated when Jane and Alex rekindle old feelings and Jane finds herself ‘the other woman’. Add Steve Martin’s character Adam, who is remodelling Janes kitchen (o-eer) and you have everything you need to make a rom com perfect for the holiday season. Its also made by the people who brought us 'Something's Gotta Give' and 'The Holiday' which in my opinion are possibly the best romcom's ever made.

Timeless 50

Recently, Volkswagen asked us to join a campaign to discover what people consider to be 'timeless', and have asked people to choose their most iconic music, television shows, fashions, foods and designs of all time. It's a very interesting project (and one you can get involved in here), and it really got me thinking: is there one single that, for me, stands out as 'timeless'? I've been pondering it long and hard, and I've finally come up with an answer:

'Heart of Glass' by BlondieIt was a song that propelled Blondie out of new-wave/punk underground obscurity and firmly into the public domain- a place they've stayed ever since. But, aside from being classic disco fare, 'Heart of Glass' undoubtedly has that certain something that has made it stand the test of time. Only this year, Gucci used it in their fragrance adverts.
But what is it that makes this song- or any song so timeless? Will we ever truly be able to put our finger on the pulse of what differentiates a one-hot wonder from an icon such as Blondie? For me, it is the sheer transience of this song that makes it unique. It was a revelation when it was first released in 1979, but even today when it comes on the radio, it remains a song people seem to connect with.
So for me, 'Heart of Glass' will forever remain timeless. What about you?

Grizzly Bear & London Symphony Orchestra w/ St. Vincent (Barbican Hall, 31/10/09)

It is Halloween. A bar owner is repainting the door of his bar in Camden, hundreds of Londoners are queueing up outside fancy dress shops to buy their last minute Halloween costumes and a strange man who tries to sell us some "relaxing scents" thinks that my friend Jessie is my wife. But for some, in all the rabble of hectic city life, there is an anticipation of events to come that doesn't just consist of drinking your own weight in alcohol and sleeping with a woman who you don't realise isn't wearing a Halloween costume until it's too late. For some, they are waiting patiently for Grizzly Bear, the Brooklyn-based psychedelic folk band, and their one off performance with the London Symphony Orchestra. Everyone is excited: Edward Droste, the founding member of the band, as evident from his Twitter; contemporary classical composer Nico Muhly, who scored arrangements for the event; and, presumably, the thousands of fans who are dotted around London, scratching their beards and waiting.

As the occasion grows closer, there is almost a sense of magic in the air, from the zombies and ghouls we pass on our way to the venue to the eerie light bulbs in jam jars that surround the stage as we take to our seats. As the lights dim the audience is thrown into silence as St. Vincent takes to the stage with a guitar and violinist. Playing a stripped down acoustic set of material from her début album 'Marry Me', and this year's follow up 'Actor', she performs with an energy that, whilst showcasing her sincere passion seems almost out of place given the grand surroundings. Layering guitars and violins with looped vocal tracks, Annie Clark's voice sounds heavenly, her small structure rising up to the challenge of impressing the attentive audience of the Barbican Hall. She says little to the crowd in her 35 minute set, but opens up towards the end; "[Grizzly Bear & LSO] are gonna make your jaws drop". Regardless of what Ed Droste & co. would do, Annie Clark had already succeeded in that.

The few remaining seats in the hall are quickly filled up as the lights go down for a second time as the London Symphony Orchestra take to the stage to polite applause. Soon after Grizzly Bear themselves emerge, to a less subdued applause and the occasional cheer. They cruise through a set of songs from their latest two albums, 'Yellow House' and 'Veckatimest', making full use of the orchestra on all tracks apart from fan favourites 'Two Weeks' and, the highlight of the night, 'While You Wait For The Others'. All four band members prove their worth as talented vocalists as well as playing their respective instruments; Chris Taylor pulls off a stunning vocal performance on 'Knife' in particular. Daniel Rossen's voice sounds just as delicate as it does on record, but elsewhere Ed Droste's voice is not always the strong force Grizzly Bear fans are used to; in places it seems weak and does not always hold up well against the orchestra.

Maybe because of the breathtaking performance of the band themselves, the orchestra seems almost unnecessary; Nico Muhly's arrangements in some places losing the momentum of songs. The swirling crescendos in (what I thought would have been a highlight of the night) 'Ready, Able' are at one point replaced by pizzicato violins, which detracts from its beauty. Maybe some would have benefited from a lack of orchestra, but Nico and LSO prove their worth on numbers such as the grand Central and Remote, and the close of 'Veckatimest' and their set tonight, 'I Live With You' and 'Foreground'. Another highlight comes in the magical cover of The Crystals' 'He Hit Me', taken from Grizzly Bear's 'Friend EP'. Despite some of the unnecessary orchestration, the band leave the stage to a standing ovation before coming back on for a dreamy rendition of 'Colorado', the last song from their 2006 LP 'Yellow House'.

It is the day after Halloween. The paint has dried in the door of the bar in Camden, Londoners attempt in vain to obtain refunds on their party outfits from the night before, and Ed Droste, in posting another update on his Twitter account, echoes the thoughts of thousands; "We'll never forget it."

October: A Memoir

October has been a pretty exciting month for us here At the Sinema. We've gained not one, not two, but three new writers, which will hopefully make our future content alot more varied (because, really, there's only so long you can probably stand hearing about comic-book obsession/ indie-rock infatuation / love of hairy men). So, here's our round-up of the month, and the TV, music and movies that are not to be missed.

Film of the Month: 'Up'The primary aim of most children’s films these days is to work on a number of levels- they must have plot simple enough to engage with a younger audience, but they must also have elements that keep the parents entertained too. However, never before have I seen a film achieve this goal with as much aplomb as ‘Up’.

From a kid’s perspective, it works. It’s a visual feast, with infantile comedy (talking dogs never go amiss), and a lot of heart- and if that doesn’t appeal to them, there’s also enough balloons to revert Darth Vader to a state of child-like giddiness.

But, there’s so much more to enjoy for an adult audience. This film- which begins with an old man losing his beloved wife, whom has spent all of his life with, and deciding to fulfil their life-long dream alone- is so poignant, so touching, and finished with such a pure, child-like sense of simplicity, it’s impossible not fall head-over-heels in love with it. A better film I have not seen all year- in short, it’s a masterpiece. Go see it now.


Album of the Month: ‘Logos’ by Atlas SoundSainthood, Terra Incognita, Masterpiece Theatre- the list of albums that fell short of my (rather lofty) expectations goes on and on. Month after month, I’ve sat down, plugged in my speakers, prepared to be dazzled, and came away feeling dejected. So, by the time ‘Logos’ arrived, it was fair to say I’d resigned myself to another anticlimax.

Luckily, such expectations were surpassed. There are some truly beautiful moments on ‘Logos’- the title song, for instance, has moments that can only be described as delicate and enchanting. But what sets it apart from most experimental albums of the year is variety- the album weaves from pretty to catchy, making pit stops at melancholy, and all finished off with the sort of fuzzy vocals we saw on Wavves’ latest offering- only this time, they work.

However, the overall impression of this album is almost blurred- in places, the distorted layers of sound build up to a largely forgettable song- you’d be hard-pushed to hum along to most of this record. And although there are much more distinctive, accomplished experimental records around this year, this dreamy and imaginative album is definitely worth a listen.

TV Show of the Month: 'Flashforward'

A few months ago I stumbled upon an article about an upcoming American TV show, which had been compared by ABC as a companion show to Lost. As Lost is one of biggest and probably best TV show of the past decade, this was quite a bold claim on ABC's part. But the idea seemed intriguing enough; everyone in the entire world's consciousness skips forward six months. Basically, people see the future. Couple this with a good cast list (including Lost's Dominic Monagan and Sonya Walger) and this show was set to impress. And, after watching the première, I had high hopes that the show would do just that. Although a far cry away from reaching ABC's expectations, it made for a very good series. Unfortunately a good cast list and a brilliant idea aren't everything. Within a few episodes we are submitted to weak script writing, sub-par and seemingly irrelevant story lines and a few cases of rather dire acting (we're looking at you, John Cho).

But that's not all that's wrong with Flashforward - the Lost comparisons definitely don't help either. If anything, Lost is taking away from the show that Flashforward could be. The Oceanic billboard in the first episode was a step too far. ABC need to let Flashforward grow and evolve naturally, instead of being compared to Lost at every opportunity. Only then (provided the scriptwriting improves rather dramatically over the coming weeks) will Flashforward have a chance at finding its own feet in the TV world.
Oh, and the logo really sucks.
