On Saturday, June 14 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., the free festival will showcase rows of music exhibitors, kids’ activities and more than 40 live performances and clinics.

ABOUT THE FILM

,

‘The Hornet’s Nest’

‘The Double’

‘For No Good Reason’

Jesse Eisenberg plays a clerk in a government agency whose unenviable life takes a turn for the horrific with the arrival of a new co-worker who is both his exact physical double and his opposite confident, charismatic and seductive with women. (R - 93 minutes)

Johnny Depp pays a visit to Ralph Steadman, the renowned artist and the last of the original Gonzo visionaries who worked alongside Hunter S. Thompson. (R - 89 minutes)

Joseph: “The Double” is the cinematic epitome of putting style over substance. Sadly, in the absence of compelling content, said style leads to little except boredom. The new doppelganger drama is momentarily intriguing in both its low-tech production design and its surreal story but it provides an experience that is similar to that of watching a minimalist stage play. Herb: At times looking like Terry Gilliam and David Lynch’s love child of a film, this mash-up is part Brazil and part 1984 and pretty fantastic all the way through. Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska are excellent, and the twists and turns are well paced and written. This sleeper deserves some attention and should be seen large for its moody cinematography and great production design.

Stan: Providing that trip down memory lane for those of us who were coming of age in the 60s & 70s and aware of the works of Ralph Steadman, this docu-drama captured the visit of Johnny Depp with Ralph Steadman. It’s the envy of this reviewer to have the opportunity to experience first hand the humor, wit, insight, and his creative expertise at work, ‘and good reason’ to see the film a 2nd time.

Stan Robinson on Twitter!

Armed only with their cameras, Peabody and Emmy Award-winning conflict journalist Mike Boettcher and his son Carlos provide unprecedented access into the longest war in U.S. history. (R - 93 minutes) Stan: This film struck home as a reminder of my service in Vietnam, which is credited as the first ‘television war’ brought to our living rooms via the correspondents who were with us in the field. As aptly stated by veteran correspondent Mike Boettcher, they too are prepared to give the ultimate sacrifice for their country, just as those they are covering in their visual reports. Herb:Possibly the most riveting film set during the Afghan war to date, this documentary is part news story about an important incursion by US forces, as well as a heartfelt examination of a fatherson reporter team embedded and trying to reconnect after years apart. Seasoned war correspondent Mike Boettcher and his son Carlos brave the bullets and fear, while telling the untold stories of heroes on the front lines.

The following quotes were pulled from interviews conducted by AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine’s film columnists with talent speaking on behalf of movies recently released in theaters.

Writer/Director/Actor Dan Fogler (‘Don Peyote’) By Joseph J. Airdo

In “Don Peyote,” Dan Fogler plays an unemployed stoner who suffers a midlife crisis over his upcoming wedding. Fueled by vivid apocalyptic

dreams, he becomes obsessed with Doomsday theories and decides to make a documentary on the subject while his fiancé is busy planning their wedding.

that rabbit hole and even though everyone is telling him, ‘Don’t worry,’ he still worries and gets so swept up in the fear of not knowing what is coming that he loses his mind.

“I had this story that I wanted to tell that was kind of like a modern streetprophet’s journey. I thought that it would be interesting if you had a regular Joe Schmoe bump into a guy with an ‘End is Near’ sign and he’s like, ‘What does that mean? Is the end coming?’

“The message that you can take away from it is that we are actually much more powerful than we realize as individuals and as a whole species - and that happiness is literally our choice in the moment. I think that a lot of people are scared and worried. But just like in ‘Star Wars,’ that leads to the dark side of the force. If you do not worry, then you can stay on the lighter side and really affect things for the better. Because if you worry about it, then you just add to the chaos.” - Dan Fogler

“He starts collecting all of these interviews from wise men and tries to make a documentary about it while trying to get to the bottom of a lot of his questions. Then he goes down

Writer/Director Joel Hopkins (‘The Love Punch) By Joseph J. Airdo

a nice idea. [My previous film] ‘Last Chance Harvey’ was about falling in love with someone late in life. This is about falling back in love with someone. This is about second chances instead of last chances. But people should know - especially if they have seen ‘Last Chance Harvey’ that this is definitely a lot more goofy. I really want people to embrace the goof.

“[‘The Love Punch’] is about two people who were once in love and for whatever reason fell out of love. Through an unfortunate thing that happens to them - their pension is stolen in a business scam - they have to team up to go after what is rightfully theirs. In the process, they start to feel things for each other again. That is the romantic side of it. “It is that sort of idea of can you fall back in love with someone, which is

“I feel a lot more vulnerable after [‘The Love Punch’] than I did after [‘Last Chance Harvey’]. I don’t know why because this is a joyful comedy yet I feel a lot more sensitive after it. But [the ultimate takeaway for me personally is to] just keep at it. Keep going and just keep trying to work. I very quickly get lose momentum because I write my own scripts and it takes a lot for me to get back on the writing treadmill. So just keep going and keep at it. That is my takeaway. It ain’t over.” - Joel Hopkins

DIDN T KNOW! by Stan Robinson

Randy Montgomery’s ‘Movie Tweets’

FILM! SECTION

SOUNDBITE SPOTLIGHT

‘Godzilla’ ~ The visual effects are top-notch, but there is something about the cheesy quality of the original that cannot be matched. Grade: B‘Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return’ ~ We are not in OZ anymore. Big names and decent animation cannot save this lackluster ode to an American classic. Grade: C‘Locke’ ~ Hardy was perfectly cast for the character driven script. Take a ride with this suspenseful, claustrophobic, yet simple thriller. Grade: A‘Million Dollar Arm’ ~ While well acted, there is little new to offer with this traditional “underdog” sentimental sports flick not seen in countless others. Grade: C+ ‘Mom’s Night Out’ ~ A poorly executed faith-based silly comedy that means well and is quite harmless, but utterly forgettable at the same time. Grade: C‘Neighbors’ ~ A moderately funny and moderately touching 96 minute raunch fest with actors (Efron and Byrne) that deserve better. Grade: C ‘The Amazing Spiderman 2’ ~ I think Spidey needs to take a break. Not that this is a bad film, but he has overstayed his welcome. Grade: B-

‘The Dark Knight’ (2008) is the first Batman film that does not include the word “Batman” in the title.

Lyman Lake State Park Re-Opens for Season; Picacho Peak State Park Winds Down Season Lyman Lake State Park in northeastern Arizona is a 1,500-acre lake with no size restrictions on boats and is open for camping reservations. The park re-opened on May 2, 2014 for the summer season. Picacho Peak State Park, the famous Peak between Phoenix and Tucson, will close for the season from May 23 to September 23, 2014. “In the summer, Picacho Peak State Park is not open due to the extreme heat and safety of our visitors,” said Executive Director Bryan Martyn. “Lyman Lake State Park opens in the spring because it is located on the Colorado Plateau which is much cooler in the summer.” Summer days at Lyman Lake State Park are perfect for fishing, water-skiing, camping and hiking. The park features 61 camping sites with shade ramadas, picnic tables and grills. Campsites range from $20 to $30

a night depending on the type of campsite needed. There are also four air-conditioned camping cabins ($55). The four one-room log camping cabins overlook the lake with covered wood porches and comfortable features. They are accessible by car and RV and equipped with electric hook-ups outside. Reservations for camping can be made 24-hours-a-day at AZStateParks.com or by calling (520) 586-2283 between 8am and 5pm (Mountain Standard Time) seven days per week. The park is located 11 miles south of St. Johns Arizona on US 191/180.  Call the park at (928) 337-4441 to reserve ramadas and group areas or to get more information about the park. Visit AZStateParks.com/parks/LYLA.

Take a Stroll with Niccole: ROSE CANYON LAKE -CATALINA MOUNTAINS Escape the heat on 7 acres of Rose Canyon Lake which resides in a beautiful canyon in the Catalina Mountain range, only thirty miles from Tucson. Nestled a few miles back into the old ponderosa forest, this is an awesome lake for fishing, hiking, photography, or just relaxing on the shore. This recreation area is complete with over 70 camp grounds, restrooms, picnic areas and covered ramadas for parties! This lake is dog friendly and kid approved but make sure to be aware of the anglers, and help keep the lake calm and quiet for everyone. This is a great place to have family fun without going too far out of town and without breaking the bank. Bring an ice chest with lunch and snacks, some drinks and hang out up in the mountains where the weather is much cooler in the summer. The mountain air is fresh with the smell of pine and there is wildlife all around the mountain slopes. I like to drive up to the Rose Canyon Lake pullout on the right hand side and hike down. It’s an easy hike that great for little kids, only about 5 miles round trip. There are trails intermittent throughout the park but I have yet to find a full trail from top to bottom so I recommend following the wash along the road if you are hiking

down. If you are fishing or taking a lot of gear I recommend driving down instead of hiking. Rainbow trout are prolific up there and different fish are stocked monthly on a regular schedule. To get there: take Catalina highway north about 30 miles until you see the sign on your left hand side for Rose Canyon Lake, it costs $10.00 to drive down and park by the lake and it is free to hike down with the Catalina permit ($5.00 a day or $20.00 for a year) All permits are required: hiking, fishing and trout stamp. For more information about fishing in Rose Canyon Lake check out the Arizona Game and Fish department’s webpage at www.azgfd. gov. Summer is coming so get out and take a mountain trek this season! To check out pictures of this area and many more around Arizona, check out my Fabebook page “Take a Stroll with Niccole” and as always send questions or comments to me at takeastrollwithniccole@gmail.com.

‘extreme Weight loss’ doesn’t mean extreme deprivation

Tapas-Mediterranean Flavors, American Flair!

Chris Powell

Trying to lose weight? Craving pizza? Go ahead and have some, but don’t call it “cheating” on your diet. Chris and Heidi Powell, the husband-and-wife trainers from ABC’s “Extreme Weight Loss,” returning Tuesday, May 27, prefer “reward” and “reset.” The Powells advocate “carb cycling”: two days a week of low-carbohydrate meals – except breakfast – and high-carb the other five, with one “reset day, where guys eat 1,000 extra calories, and girls eat 750 extra calories” to kickstart the metabolism, Heidi says. “And its a food of their choice, because it’s important that we don’t let them feel deprived, because what happens when you feel deprived? “If someone says, ‘You can never, ever, ever have a brownie for the rest of your life,’ and brownies are the thing that you love, then all you’re going to want is a brownie, right?” she continues. “And the second you eat that brownie, you’re going to feel like a failure, you’re not going to tell anyone, you’re going to hold that secret in, and you’re going to fall off the wagon.” A thousand extra calories sounds like a lot to anyone who’s ever tried to drop a few pounds on a 1,200calorie-a-day diet – but the folks featured on “Extreme Weight Loss” start their yearlong transformations with a target of 2,250 calories a day for men, 1,750 for women. For those who have been living on 5,000 calories a day or more, any reduction gets results.

of “AmericAn ninjA WArrior” on nBC What’s new about this season of “American ninja Warrior,” launching monday, may 26, on nBc?

The scope of the show just keeps getting bigger. We received double the number of submissions from last year, and that was already a record for us. So many people want to compete that we had to add another city to our qualifying tour. And each city has at least four new obstacles, so every week is going to be something different. now that the show’s been on a few seasons, what changes are you seeing in the type of people who want to be on the show?

our competitors have always had diverse backgrounds, but this year, we’re seeing a ton of incredibly high-level athletes coming out. We’ve got world champion wakeboarders and martial artists, professional rock climbers and even multiple olympians. of course, we’ll also have dozens of competitors in their 50s and above, like ‘Grandpa ninja‘ Kelvin Antoine, tackling the course. So we really are going to see people from all walks of life.
