Heavy Metal Or No Metal At All

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Ok, I know a lot of you aren't really looking forward to this one. I'd even go so far as to say that you're dreading it. We all know how terrible Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was, from the lame action, to the juvenile humor ("enemy scrotum?"), to the incredibly racist robots. And we all groaned when it was announced that Señor Bay and Monsieur LaBeouf would be back. Now, was I the only one who's ears started to perk up when some news about the production started trickling in? When the bomb dropped that Megan Fox wouldn't be back, I cheered. Did you? When Michael Bay went on the record apologizing for Revenge, I nodded in approval. Did you? When the Super Bowl spot was aired, I took interest. Did you? You should have! Transformers: Dark of the Moon, while far from anything worth submitting from awards contention, is a far better film than you or I expected. A million times better than Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon is not only filled to bursting with crazy action and destruction, but is making an effort to be a legitimately good movie. And, crazy as it sounds, it more or less succeeds.

Apparently, he can do parkour too. Who knew?

The war between the Autobots and Decepticons has, more or less, come to a standstill, with the Autobots now assisting their human allies with their problems. But when Optimus discovers a piece of Cybertronian technology hidden deep in Chernobyl, it sets off a catastrophic chain of events that sees the conflict between the robots explode on a global scale, as the Decepticons invade. Dragged into the fight, once again, is Sam Witwicky, who has been in a sort of funk because shit hasn't been blowing up around him for two years. But, he and his new absurdly hot girlfriend soon find themselves at the forefront of a massive battle between the two factions as the Decepticons make one last attempt to overthrow Earth and win the day.

Ok, yes. On paper, it sounds like pretty much every other Transformers film, and it is... sort of. We start off seeing some small battles, and the conflict slowly escalates, leading to an all out war on a grand scale for a finale. But Dark of the Moon is different in the sense that there's an actual point to what's going on. Sure, the plot makes almost no sense, but, unlike the first two, there are actual stakes in what's taking place. Characters are actually in danger here, and some seriously sinister shit actually goes down. Yes, the script is still painfully juvenile at times, but there seemed to be a greater effort to provide something a bit more mature, and it paid off.

For the most part, the main cast returns. Shia LaBeouf is still the most reliable member, bringing wit and heart to the role of Sam for the third time. Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson adequately provide the man meat that kicks ass in their nothing roles as Lennox and Epps. John Turturro is still annoying as hell as Simmons, and Kevin Dunn and Julie White are still enjoyable as Sam's parents.

No Megan Fox though. No, in her place is a new comer, Rose Huntington-Whiteley, playing Sam's new flame, Carly, and, crazy as it sounds, she's not bad. Unlike Megan "Less Personality Than a Bag of Hammers" Fox, Huntington-Whiteley actually manages to convey something human with her role. She and LaBeouf have a good chemistry. You can buy these two together, despite the fact that she is way out of his league, something you could never do when Fox was around.

Patrick Dempsey shows up, playing a world class douche bag with a major card to play in the events that unfold, and Frances McDormand shows up as this week's government official who provides no help whatsoever. All other newcomers fill out the background humor roles. Alan Tudyk is hilarious as Simmon's assistant, Dutch, and John Malkovich offers up some inspired lunacy as Sam's new boss. Ken Jeong is here as well, but he's annoying as balls, so you won't be hearing anything about him from me... except for that, obviously.

On the voice side of things, Peter Cullen returns to voice Optimus and Hugo Weaving shows up again to voice Megatron. The major new addition to the voice cast is Leonard Nimoy, voicing Sentinal Prime, an über powerful transformer who the entire battle revolves around. Nimoy is "eh" in the role, though hearing bust out a Spock line during the proceedings was pretty nifty.

Performances here are a step above the previous installments. Though LaBeouf is still the star player, everyone else seems to be trying to elevate their game to his level. They don't really succeed, but the effort's appreciated.

"Don't worry. There's no way you could be worse in bed than Megan!
It's clear, right from the off, that Michael Bay learned from his mistakes on the last movie. Gone are the over long bouts of juvenile and dumb humor. Gone are the offensive jokes (mostly). Gone are the impossible to follow action scenes. The painfully overdone dramatic moments have been toned way down. In their place is a tighter film, grittier and more sinister than anything Bay has done before. Transformers: Dark of the Moon is, surprisingly, ridiculously dark and foreboding. This is the first film in the series where we see the actual human cost of the robot war. There are multiple shots of body strewn sidewalks and subway cars, tons of scenes where humans are massacred mercilessly by rampaging Decpeticons, and a chilling, albeit brief, montage of Decepticons assassinating their human collaborators.

That was one thing that really bother me about the first two movies. There was untold destruction and carnage, but, as far as I could tell, not a single human death. Here, that's not the case. You get the sense that our world is actually threatened by this intergalactic conflict, and the film is better because of it.

It doesn't hurt that the action is the best the series has seen so far. The first couple of scenes are nothing special, but when you get to the thrilling chase on the highway that sees Autobots and Decepticons duking it out at high speeds, you know Bay went all out to make the violence good. The invasion scene is tightly done and very intense, and don't even get me started on the final forty minutes. This is the loudest and biggest Transformers movie, with dozens of elements being combined into one amalgamation of pyromaniacal mayhem. But, it's well shot and easy to follow.

Some of it is actually really thrilling. There's a sequence where a squad of soldiers fly into the battle in wingsuits. Bay could have easily just put them in front of a green screen and shot it like that, but he didn't. Instead, he actually sent those guys flying through Chicago, in between buildings, and just filmed it all. And it's awesome! For all his douche bag tendencies, that's one thing I really like about Bay. He'll make a scene in a practical manner first than do special effects afterwards. Curse me for comparing him to Christopher Nolan in that sense, but it's a fair comparison none the less.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon is not perfect. Far from it. The story still doesn't make sense; a lot of the humor is still of a very low brow sort, and the ending is way to sudden and abrupt. But, it is by no means a disaster. Actually, compared to the second one, it's a masterpiece. Bay promised to make a film that made up for the travesty of Revenge of the Fallen. While he will never be forgiven for unleashing that steaming pile of shit on us, he has lessened the sting with Dark of the Moon. It's a tight, well made piece of insanity that strives to deliver something more adult than we've seen from the series thus far, and while there were some bumps in the road, it can be viewed as a success in that regard. Well done Bay. Maybe there's hope for you yet.



What A Wicked Game To Play

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Lately, my life has been consumed by three things, French, Battlestar Galactica, and George R. R. Martin's epic series of books, A Song of Ice and Fire. Outside of Lord of the Rings, I have never before come across a fantasy saga as engrossing, detailed, and thrilling as Martin's superb tomes.

Have no idea what A Song of Ice and Fire is? No worries; you've been exposed to it. The new series on HBO, Game of Thrones, is a direct adaptation of it. I've been faithfully following the show since the premiere two months ago, and loved every second of it.

Game of Thrones is, truly, a brilliant television show. Full of rich and complex characters, sweeping mythology and devilishly twisty plots, Game of Thrones is a perfect example of how to adapt a book to the screen.

BEWARE: SPOILERS AWAIT THEE!!!



Since it's only been up for one season, Game of Thrones just recounted the events of the first book in Martin's series, titled... uh, A Game of Thrones. The story is set in the fantasy kingdom of Westeros, where seasons can last a generation, where a massive ice wall separates the Seven Kingdoms from the cruel and wild wastes of the north, and where, as various factions begin to sense opportunity, war is brewing. It all starts off fairly quaint in the dark wooden halls of Winterfell, which is ruled over by Lord Eddard (Ned) Stark. When the King on the Iron Throne and his best friend, Robert Baratheon, names him Hand of the King, Ned has no choice but to leave his home and family and travel south to the capitol, King's Landing. Once there, he finds himself practically drowning in corruption and deceit as everyone around him tries to manipulate everyone else to further their own goals. Ned is the one honorable man in a dishonorable world, and soon he is fighting for his very life against forces who would see him dispatched.

Meanwhile, Ned's bastard son, Jon, travels north to The Wall to join the Night's Watch, a group of men entrusted to defending The Wall and fighting against the evil that lurks in the frozen tundra of the north. While this is going on, Ned's wife, Catelyn, is looking into an attempt on the life of her son, Bran, leading her to arrest a member of the most powerful family in the realm, causing both sides to take up arms.

While this is all going on, across the Narrow Sea, Viserys and Daenerys Targaryen are plotting a return to Westeros to reclaim the throne that Robert and Ned stole from their father. To do this, Viserys sells Daenerys to the mighty Khal Drogo, the king of the barbaric and nomadic Dothraki, as a wife in hopes that he will be able to use the Khal's horde to conquer the Seven Kingdoms. But, Daenerys suddenly finds herself falling in love with Drogo, and soon finds the strength to stand up to her cruel brother and become a leader that could very well lead her people in a glorious campaign to take back the Iron Throne.

And on top of all this, a supernatural threat is waiting in the north, beyond The Wall, one that threatens to devour all of Westeros. Winter is coming, and whatever it is that sits on the other side of the Wall will rise up in arms when it does.


HOLY SHIT!!! How they managed to fit all that plot into just ten episodes is totally beyond me. I didn't even go into the stories surrounding Ned's children, Robert's relationship with his wife, Cersei, or the eventual civil war that breaks out between House Stark and House Lannister. I didn't even mention half of the important characters in this series. You'd've been here all day!

Despite the sheer volume of content that needed to be addressed, each story is given enough time to get fleshed out; each character is given enough time in the spotlight so that we get to know them. The stories here mean something. Every time something bad happens, you feel it like a  sucker punch to the go-nads. Every time something good happens, all you want to to do is jump for joy. It's well done.

Time for the ranking of the episodes!!

1. Baelor: TV was made for episodes like this. It's impossible to talk about this episode without talking about the huge event that happens in the end... so I'll just go ahead and spoil it for you. This was the episode that told the world that Game of Thrones wasn't fucking around. Any show that has the balls to kill off the main character after only nine episodes is not one to mess with. We were sad to see Ned go, but his death was the catalyst for so many juicy things to rear their heads. It doesn't hurt that said death scene was wonderfully done. Couple that with Daenerys' desperation to save a dying Drogo, and this is one episode that will stick with you for ages. There was talk about how the writers might do away with Ned's death so that they could keep their biggest "name" with the show. Thank God they didn't!

2. You Win Or You Die: If "Baelor" confirmed that Game of Thrones was throwing up a big finger to traditional television conventions, "You Win Or You Die" was the one that first hinted at it. Things had been escalating for these characters, but this was where they finally blew up. Ned is betrayed by Baelish as he tries to remove the illegitimate Joffrey from the throne. Jon takes his vows and becomes a full fledged member of The Night's Watch. Jaime Lannister marches on Riverrun. And Drogo vows to cross the narrow sea and take the Iron Throne for Daenerys following an attempt on her life by one of Robert's agents. Serious shit went down in this episode. Serious chills went down my spine.

3. The Wolf and the Lion: Ned said to Arya in "Lord Snow" that King's Landing was a dangerous place, but this was the first episode where we really felt it. To see Jaime attack Ned in the streets and then stroll off as if nothing happened is über chilling! Meanwhile, Catelyn brings Tyrion to The Eyrie to answer for his supposed crimes. Meanwhile, Robert order's the assassination of Daenerys, creating a rift between him and Ned. This is where the series picked up steam in my opinion. We had gotten to know the characters by now, so it was time for the crazy to begin. And it begins in earnest!


4. The Golden Crown: Oh, sure. Ned realizing the secret that Jon Arryn died for, that Cersei's children are actually all the products of her incestuous relationship with Jaime is big, but this episode sticks out in my mind for one reason; Viserys getting crowned by Drogo! Oh damn!


5. Winter Is Coming: An effective pilot needs to set the stage for the show to come, and Winter Is Coming did that in spades. Following a terrifying opening where a party of Night's Watch are butchered by the supernatural White Walkers, we are introduced to the world of Westeros and all it has to offer. I hadn't started the books by the time this aired, so this was all incredibly fresh for me. And the ending, which saw Bran getting thrown from a tower after seeing Jaime and Cersei go at it, told me I was in for something a bit more dangerous than the usual television fare, and that's always a good feeling!




6. Fire and Blood: Picking up right after Ned's death, "Fire and Blood" wraps things up nicely, whilst sneakily introducing some elements of the next book, A Clash of Kings, into the mix. The death of his father has caused Robb to begin the war for the Iron Throne in earnest, ending with him being proclaimed the King of the North by his bannermen. Arya escapes King's Landing with the help of Yoren, leaving a grieving Sansa at the mercy of King Joffrey. Jon decides to stay with the Night's Watch and march into the wintery abyss rather than abandon his post and forsake his vows to fight alongside Robb and avenge Ned's death. And Daenerys says goodbye to Drogo, and cremates him. Though she lost her son and her husband, their deaths gave life to her dragon eggs. The final image of Daenerys standing, surrounded by kneeling Dothraki, as her new born dragons roar is a sight to behold.


7. The Kingsroad: As Ned, Jon, Sansa and Arya depart with the King, Catelyn is attacked by an assassin sent by Jaime to silence Bran who survived his fall. Meanwhile, Jon arrives at The Wall with Benjen and Tyrion, whilst Ned and Co. run into trouble on the road, thanks, in no small part, to Joffrey and the little shit that he is! We got our first taste of direwolf mauling here, when Bran's wolf comes in rips out the assassin's throat. Bloody awesomeness!


8. The Pointy End: The war begins, as Robb calls the Stark bannermen to help free his father, while the Dothraki horde pillage their way across the continent on their way to the sea. The Wall is attacked in the night by walking corpses, killed by the White Walkers and cursed to return as undead wights! Khal Drogo has the singular best kill of the entire season when he rips out a guy's tongue through his neck, and Arya gets to stab a fat kid. Sounds good to me.

Now, let us bow our heads and say a prayer for Syrio Forel. You are a god amongst men!


9. Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things: Daenerys finally asserts herself as a khaleesi, standing up to Viserys. The horribly out of shape and cowardly Sam Tarly comes to the Wall, and Jon takes it upon himself to protect him. Ned gets closer to discovering the reason behind Jon Arryn's death, and Tyrion is taken prison by Catelyn, the act that sets the first few gears in motion.


10. Lord Snow: For the record, Game of Thrones didn't have a bad episode, but this one was the weakest. Not because of poor writing or acting, no no. It was just that nothing happened in this episode. To be fair, nothing really happened at this point in the book either, so there wasn't really anything to be done, but still... no deaths, no sex, no battles. Lame!

I'm very glad that the show was picked up by HBO instead of, say... any other network. Starz would have made it too schlocky in their continued attempts to capitalize on the awesomeness of Spartacus; Showtime would have made it too quirky, and Cinemax would have turned it into a softcore porno. Any major network like NBC, ABC, or TNT wouldn't have had the creative freedom to show all the blood and sex required, so thank God for that. HBO is the only network where it could received it's just deserves, and, thankfully, the creators seemed to go with the intention of starting at just deserves and working their way up from there.

What writers/creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have done is nothing short of magical. Not only did that masterfully adapt pretty much every aspect of Martin's books for the screen, they also added things that weren't in the books to flesh out certain characters. Baelish is much bigger and interesting character here than he was in the first book; his conversations with Varys are delightfully witty and sinister. Theon Greyjoy, who does become a major character in the later books, is given more to do here, as is Robert, Jaime, Cersei, and Ser Barristan. Jorah Mormont has some nice added scenes amongst the Dothraki, and anytime we saw Ros (a character unique to the show), she was most likely naked so... that's a good thing.

Of course, some of the stuff that was added was added to appeal to the masses; this is television after all. Some fights are elongated or changed around for dramatic effect; in the book, Ned didn't fight Jaime when he was attacked in the streets, just his men. Of course, it's not a complaint. The books were so interesting, thanks in large part to the inner monologues of the characters, so you could very easily read 200 pages without a single battle or fight and not even give a shit. It's harder to do on TV. Luckily, Benioff and Weiss chose where to begin and end their episodes carefully, making sure that there was something, more or less, exciting in each episode.

Look, I've said all I can say. All you need to know is that Game of Thrones absolutely rocks!! I will, of course, recommend the books over the show any day, but, in this age of instant gratification, I can't expect you to sit down and read a series of 900+ page books. But, Game of Thrones is such a faithful adaptation that, just by watching the show, you'll still be getting a good 90% of the full experience. This was easily the best new show this year. Christ, they need to get to filming Clash of Kings already. Take it from me, it gets even better!

ON A WHOLE NEW LEVEL!!!

My Summer So Far: Quick Reviews of Beginners, The Tree of Life, and X-Men: First Class

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that, since I was cooped up in France, drowning in baguettes and wine, and getting floored by the overall sexiness of everyone around me that I was completely blind to what was going on at the movie theaters for the month. Am I on to something?

Well, you're wrong. Yes, I missed out on catching such things as Super 8 and Green Lantern, though I'll get to them later. But, there are movie theaters in France, go figure. The town I was in, Tours, actually had a pretty sweet set up. There was a theatre that played a lot of American movies in English with French subtitles for rull cheap. I managed to find time in my busy schedule of classes, excursions, and drinking to see two movies. And then, of course, I get home and head straight for the theatre.

Care to know my thoughts? Of course you do. You've been practically dead inside without my dry wit to hold you over. Well, satiate yourselves. Hit the jump and frolic in the awesomeness!!!

Hotel de Ville

Beginners: I'm happy that this was playing and that my friends bought the tickets without my knowledge. Beginners tells the story of a loner sketch artist, Oliver, coping with the death of his recently out father, whilst simultaneously enjoying a serious relationship with a beautiful french actress. It's a pretty standard plot, but the way writer/director Mike Mills makes the story interesting with it's non-linear progression, helped along by the chemistry of his three main stars.

Ewan McGregor is excellent as Oliver, and Christopher Plummer is also very good as his father Hal, though they are both overshadowed by Melanie Laurent, perfectly cast as Anna. The movie is good, very funny and charming, with a refreshing optimistic mindset. But it doesn't really do anything to help it stand out from any other comedy of it's sort. It's a well done feature, but you'll forget about it a couple days later.

The Tree of Life: Now, this on the other hand, is a movie that you won't forget a couple of days later. As a matter of fact, you'll never forget it! Put simply, The Tree of Life is an absolutely fascinating and breathtaking piece of cinema. It's, at times, a detailed and honest look at a troubled childhood, at others a surreal and beautiful imagining of the creation of the universe. And it is always engrossing.

Brad Pitt plays Mr. O'Brien, a man who's brutish methods often cause him to clash with his sons. Jessica Chastain, beautifully restrained, plays his husband. Sean Penn has gotten top billing as their son, Jack, but he's actually only in the movie for, like, seven minutes, and has less lines. The real star is newcomer Hunter McCracken as Young Jack. The performances are all, uniformly, excellent. Every actor does a great job, handling writer/director Terrence Malick's sparse, poetic dialogue.

There is actually too much to say about Tree of Life that, even if I dedicated a whole post to it, I wouldn't have even scratched the surface. Just know that it's an absolutely wonderful movie, easily the best I've seen so far this year.

Also, dinosaurs!

X-Men: First Class: Hot of the plane from Europe, and the first thing I do is get my ass to a theatre to check this one out. In short, it's easily the best movie in the X-Men franchise, full to bursting with mutants running around doing cool shit, with great performances and a feel totally foreign to superhero movies.

First Class, directed by Matthew Vaughn, tells the story of how Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr became friends and, eventually, enemies. Under Vaughn's keen eye, the film ditches the brooding, blue grey look of the other X-Men movies for a bright and colorful palette, complete with a ton of political tension and intrigue. Indeed, X-Men: First Class feels like a Bond movie, if Bond and his nemesis had super powers. The bad guy has a super powered submarine, and Charles is super smooth, hard drinking, playboy. All the performances rock, especially Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and Michael Fassbender as Erik Lensherr.

However, I'm only slightly let down, but that has everything to do with expectations. Being in France when this came out, all I could do was read the reviews. A lot of the reviews I read put this one right up there with The Dark Knight. Imagine my excitement. Unfortunately, it's not quite that good, nor is it the best superhero movie so far this summer (that's Thor). It is still worth every penny. With plenty of exciting action and solid performances, X-Men: First Class is plenty capable of braving the competition in what is shaping up to be a super strong summer.

And there's a cameo from a certain someone that is far and away the best cameo of the year! You'll see.

Studio Paintings: Index (Addendum) Published on the occasion of Ian Whittlesea: Energy is Eternal Delight at PayneShurvell, London, 17 June-23 July 2011

This limited edition print marks Whittlesea's return to the studio and a continuing engagement with text and typography. The Studio Paintings (1994-2002) describe the places where artists and writers worked. Whittlesea transcribes the addresses and the migrations of, among others, Mark Rothko, Donald Judd, Piet Mondrian, James Joyce and William Blake. The edition Studio Paintings: Index shows in miniature all the paintings produced from 1994 until 2002. After Circumnavigation, a group of text paintings about Darwin's voyage and his garden walk (2003), Whittlesea retreated from painting and, while continuing to exhibit, stopped making new work. The obsessive attention and discipline that sustained the production of the text paintings was for the next few years directed exclusively toward judo – described sometimes as 'physical chess', sometimes as the 'great crippler' of the martial arts. Despite many and various injuries (broken ankle, nose, ribs etc.), Whittlesea gained his black belt in 2007 and began work on the translation and typesetting of Yves Klein's Fondements du Judo (1954), published in 'transimile' in 2009.
Energy is Eternal Delight brings together several recent works dealing with translation, simulation, title, text and typography, among them a new painting, showing the New York address of Agnes Martin's studio, and an Addendum to the Index, applied to the reverse of the 2002 print.
