TUCSON COVER STORY

ARIZONA BASEBALL 2013 Arizona Baseball is more than halfway through the 2013 season playing as defending National Champions. 2012 was a magical year for the Arizona Baseball program, but the focus is on the here and now. Head Coach Andy Lopez has his team hitting on all cylinders in a conference widely known as one of the best in the country. Simply put, Arizona is playing good baseball. They lead the conference in many team categories including batting average, on base percentage, runs scored, runs batted in, triples, walks, and stolen bases. Combine that with the experience of Coach Lopez and you have a team that knows how to win. The 2012 season left many holes to fill in the roster for 2013 but several players have stepped up to fill key roles from those lost after the championship season. Five Wildcats find themselves in the top ten in batting average in the Pac-12 including Brandon Dixon, Johnny Field, Trent Gilbert, Zach Gibbons and Kevin Newman. In addition to that, Dixon leads the league in runs scored, hits (tied with teammate Field), stolen bases and triples (tied with teammate Gilbert). It’s a young team but a team with a lot of talent.

Second Season at Hi Corbett The Wildcats have taken advantage of their second year at Hi Corbett Field, located in the heart of Tucson. The historic ballpark has quickly taken on an

Arizona Baseball identity that is evident by the crowds filing in every home game wearing red and blue. This was most apparent during the wild comeback win against rival Arizona State on April 16th in front of over 5,000 fans. The victory defined what makes this team special; a group of hardnosed student-athletes who know how to play the game. This team has created their own identity but has always had that one common goal that all of the teams before them fought for and that is to end their season in Omaha.

Remaining Home Schedule There is plenty of Arizona Baseball left to play at Hi Corbett Field this year including a seven game home stand opening with a three game series against Alabama State set to start on Friday, April 26th at 6 PM. Following the weekend series, the Wildcats will have a quick turnaround and stay at home to face in-state rival Arizona State on Tuesday, April 30th at 6 PM for a Wildcat Red Out. Finishing the home stand, Arizona will face Pac12 opponent Washington in a three game series beginning on Friday, May 3. After a couple of weeks on the road the Cats will finish the 2013 regular season with a home series against USC starting Friday, May 24th.

Tickets

Tickets for the remaining home games at Hi Corbett Field are still April 24th, 2013 - April 30th, 2013 AZWeeklyMagazine.com

available and can be purchased online at www.arizonawildcats. com or by calling 621-CATS. If you order your tickets online you will save $2 off the game-day price. Also still available are 7 game mini-plans with which you can save up to 26% off the single game price and you get to choose the 7 home games to attend.

majority of these revenues come from charitable gifts, ticket sales, corporate sponsorships, and television revenues. In addition, the Arizona Board of Regents authorizes 315 tuition waivers annually in support of our studentathletes. The charitable gifts come from the collective group of donors that comprise the Wildcat Club. The financial support provides scholarships, state-ofthe-art facilities, equipment, team travel, and all the other tools that help our student-athletes succeed on and off the playing surface. Invest in Arizona studentathletes and help us reach 12,000 members in the Wildcat Club by June of 2013.

Groups of 15 or more are eligible for the group ticket discount at $4 per ticket. Have you ever wanted to celebrate your birthday with the Cats?

REVIEWERS ROUNDTABLE The following are reactions from each of AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine’s film commentators in an effort to generate a well-rounded overview of this weekend’s new releases.

flip severed hands on a barbeque as if they are burgers. Oh, and as a well timed onscreen note reminds us, this is a true story. So if that inhibits your ability to find amusement in this too-bonkers-to-believe story, you may wish to steer clear. Otherwise, you are certain to see this movie as entertainment on steroids thanks to director Michael Bay’s all-business/action-packed approach, incredibly clever narration and characters who have an abundance of brawn but no brains whatsoever.

‘To the Wonder’

‘Antiviral’

‘Pain & Gain’

Caleb Jones plays an employee at a clinic that sells injections of live viruses harvested from sick celebrities to obsessed fans. When he becomes infected with the disease that kills the most revered celebrity of all, he becomes a target for collectors and rabid fans. Playing exclusively at The FilmBar and The Loft Cinema. (NR - 106 minutes)

Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie play personal trainers who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong. Tony Shalhoub, Ed Harris, Rob Corddry, Rebel Wilson and Ken Jeong also star. (R 120 minutes)

Joseph: It is not necessarily a bad thing that writer/director Brandon Cronenberg’s style seems so inspired by that of his father David. After all, he has picked up many useful skills - including an eye for visual poetry and a knack for infusing an interesting idea with significant social subtext. However, some stories - such as the one in “Antiviral” - ought to be told with at least some sense of humanity. Brandon borrows too much from David for this particular premise, using a parasite in place of an actual character and adopting a pace that will put most audiences to sleep.

10

April 24th, 2013 - April 30th, 2013

Stan: With Michael Bay’s expertise as an action themed director, a firm R rating, the over the top character elements, and an implausible story base, ‘Pain & Gain’ becomes a humorous guide on ‘What not to do to succeed in life’ while following the pursuit of one’s dreams. It’s raunchy, irreverent, and downright risqué, but a lot of fun for that off-center side in all of us that lays hidden and suppressed. A treat for this reviewer are the appearances of Rebel Wilson and Ken Jeong who’s work I’ve enjoyed over the last few films featuring their appearances!

Olga Kurylenko and Ben Affleck play a couple that, after visiting Mont Saint-Michel, come to Oklahoma where problems arise. The woman meets a priest and fellow exile (Javier Bardem) that is struggling with his vocation while the man renews his ties with a childhood friend (Rachel McAdams). Playing exclusively at Harkins Camelview 5 and The Loft Cinema. (R - 112 minutes) Joseph: Writer/director Terrence Malick’s characters in “To the Wonder” love to spin

around in circles. At first, everything looks so absolutely gorgeous - with dialogue that makes this romantic drama feel less like a motion picture than a piece of poetry that has come to life - that you embrace the experience and spin around with them. However, as time goes on and things get increasingly abstract, you lose your grasp on the story and are sent flying into a state of discombobulating by the centrifugal force. Eventually, you are merely looking at the movie as opposed to actually absorbing it.

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.

Actress Patricia Rae (‘The Big Wedding’) By Joseph J. Airdo “My character is really like the moral fiber of the film. She has a very strong faith - very Catholic - and is ultraconservative. She works for the church in Columbia but I think that a lot of her passion and seclusion in the church is just kind of a way to cover up or make up for some mistakes that she made in her youth. I think the fact that she gave her son up for adoption really weighs heavily on her and she has kind of been trying to live up to that sorrow and hide behind religion. “I was a little nervous about working with Robin Williams. I said, “Oh my God! I’m doing a scene with Robin Williams and I’m supposed to make him speechless! Who makes Robin Williams shut up? Nobody!” But he was actually very charming, gracious and generous. He really gave me my due on screen and let me shine.

He didn’t try to upstage anything or me like that. Plus he gave me a lot of pointers and helped me with the rhythm of the scene.

FILM! SECTION

SOUNDBITE SPOTLIGHT “For me, this film is really about the concessions and the compromises that you have to make to be a part of a family. When you get married, you are marrying one family into another. You don’t always necessarily see eye to eye with the people that you are getting married into you so you really have to learn to open your mind, open your heart and be super compassionate about other people’s points of view, faith and opinions. And that can sometimes be hard. It can be a very difficult situation when the bride’s and groom’s families don’t really see eye to eye. So it really helped me see that from a fresh perspective.” – Patricia Rae

MOVIE TWEETS! Still haven’t seen that movie that your friends have been talking about? Film Columnist Randy Montgomery recaps what you may have missed in 140 characters or less.

BET, YOU

‘42’ ~ This story about an American sports legend is definitely worth a look, despite the formula being done over and over again by Hollywood. Grade: A-

Disconnect ‘Crash’ for the online generation. Minus a few plot flaws, its expertly directed, professionally acted and close-tohome disturbing. Grade: B+

Evil Dead (2013) A bloody good time, literally. A perfect follow-up to the classic that may actually surpass its predecessor as an all-time favorite. Grade: A-

DIDN T KNOW! Oblivion Tom Cruise is likable in this sci-fi drama. The complex script is unique and the special effects are top-notch.  Andrea Riseborough shines. Grade: B+

by Stan Robinson

Scary Movie By no means an award winner, but the sequel/parody is a ridiculously fun time poking fun at the genre. Better than ‘A Haunted House.’ Grade: C The Lords of Salem A departure from the nonstop gore we are used to from Rob Zombie. There are enough chilling moments to forgive the horrible acting. Grade: B

In ‘Raiders Of The Lost Ark’ (1981) Indiana Jones was to fight an Arab swordsman but Harrison Ford was too ill and suggested to director Steven Spielberg that Indy simply shoot him.

gourmet taste. The atmosphere is always casual and welcoming. Tapas is a Spanish term for “top of”. There are many stories of why bread and bits of food was placed on top of a drinking vessel. Tales range from royalty with strange eating habits to bartenders attempting to keep the flies out of drinks. Whatever you want to believe, Tapas, or small portions of food has become a worldly concept and no longer restricted to just Spanish food or restaurants. Tapas Fusion has some very classic Spanish dishes like Tortillas Espanola, but the chefs at Tapas Fusion also have fun combing ingredients and flavors from all over the world to creating mouth watering tapas.

Tucson’s Largest Selection of Infused Vodkas! Over 20 Flavors! Lunch & Dinner Specialties: • Duck Sliders • Jalapeno Boats • Duck Club • Black & Bleu Salad

• London Calling Fish & Chips • Jalapeno-Bacon Cheeseburger • Chocolate Covered Bacon • Deep-Fried PB&J

The Grand Opening of Tapas Fusion introduces the new weekend tapas bar of delicious combinations of traditional Spanish foods such as the Jamone Serrano Ham, Manchago cheese, Piquillo red peppers, seafood and newly created tapas served buffet style. The new tapas bar is Free with a purchase of one of the many specialty drinks or $12 or more purchase of items from the menu. The menu at Tapas Fusion has a new twist on flavors like the Piquillo Rellenos - a small Spanish red pepper stuffed with goat and spicy jack cheese and shrimp or the Piquillo Serrano where the pepper is stuffed with Jamone Serrano Ham, cream cheese, olives, tomatoes and sprinkled with dark chili pepper. The tastes melt in your mouth. Most people start out ordering one, but that is never enough. If this sounds too exotic for some, American favorites such as the hamburger, filet mignon, chicken pasta and a few Mexican dishes are also on the menu. Tapas Fusion isn’t just a restaurant with excellent food and drinks, it also proudly supports the communi-

ty of Tucson. If a charity registers its non-profit number at Tapas Fusion, people can ask that $1 of at least a $20 food purchase goes to their selected charity. If you wish to register your charity, please contact Mary@ tapasfusiontucson.com. The grand opening of Tapas Fusion starts on April 26th with Fiery Friday. The bartenders will fire up your drinks with flame and taste! The Flaming Lamborghini dessert drink features flaming liquid running down a high pile of glassware. Watch in amazement as the bottom martini glass fills with a chocolate mint tasting dessert drink. Shot Saturday features the rainbow shot resulting in 6 different tasting and colored shots being poured out of one glass. All can be enjoyed with the free tapas bar.
