“The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”, a new fantasy fable from director Terry Gilliam

Directed by Terry Gilliam; written by Terry Gilliam and Charles McKeown; Sony Pictures Classics release. Rated PG-13 for violent images, some sensuality, language and smoking. Runtime: 122 minutes.

Review by Stan Robinson Writer/director Terry Gilliam has been known for over 30 years for his talented use of visual conceptions for his unique brand of storytelling. His “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” (1975) is a classic while establishing his particular expertise in the fantasy/ adventure genre of movies! In this fantasy/adventure, the owner (Christopher Plummer) of a traveling theater company has the extraordinary gift of guiding the imaginations of others, and gives the audiences that attend, much

“Leap Year” In this romantic comedy, a woman (Amy Adams) has an elaborate scheme to propose to her boyfriend on Leap Day, an Irish tradition that occurs every time the leap year date of February 29 comes. She faces a major setback when bad weather threatens her planned trip to Dublin to propose. When all seems lost, with the help of an innkeeper, her crosscountry odyssey still just might result in her getting engaged.

and has been steadily moving toward ‘A’ list status ever since with performances in the Oscar® winner “Juno” (2007) starring Ellen Page, the documentary “Paper Heart” (2009) where he was a very interesting character, himself, and co-starred with Jack Black in the prehistoric comedy-adventure “Year One” (2009).

“Youth in Revolt” star Michael Cera, on the rise! The tag line for actor Michael Cera’s latest movie, ‘Every “Revolution” Needs A Leader’, could be viewed as the mantra for the next generation of actors as we start the 2010-decade. The Canadian born actor who turns 22 this year, has been developing his craft since his first TV role in 1999. Most viewers became aware of his skills in the hit cable TV series “Arrested Development” (20032006) as George-Michael Bluth of the ‘dysfunctional’ yet entertaining Bluth family. With his big screen performance, Michael Cera captured the movie going audiences’ attention in 2007 with the sleeper hit, “Superbad”

For his latest challenge as an actor, Michael Cera has starring status, and, has two roles in “Youth in Revolt”, Nick Twisp and Francois Dillinger! The story centers on Nick Twisp, who has his eye on the girl of his dreams (Portia Doubleday), while his parents’ relationship is at that all-important breaking point. Add to Michael Cera’s acting talent, music composer. He contributed to the music score of “Youth In Revolt”, provided original music for “Paper Heart”, and Michael Cera and Ellen Page sang the song “Anyone Else But You” in the movie “Juno”.

Directed by Miguel Arteta; written by Gustin Nash; Dimension Films release. Rated R for sexual content, language and drug use. Runtime: 90 minutes.

As the next generation of young actors take center stage, one can certainly put Michael Cera at the head of that watch list. Read my review for “Youth in Revolt” at www. ScreenScene.org       “Youth in Revolt” stars Michael Cera as Nick Twisp and Francois Dillinger, Portia Doubleday, Jean Smart, Zach Galifianakis, Erik Knudsen, Adhir Kalyan, Steve Buscemi, Fred Willard, Ari Graynor, Ray Liotta, and Justin Long.

Actor Ethan Hawke’s latest features ‘old school’ vampires with a twist of the new! Interview by Stan Robinson Vampires and werewolves are the ‘in’ thing. With the success of the “Twilight” movies, the younger generation has embraced the ‘new age’ version of these half-human elements of the night. Why would an actor decide to take on a project like “Daybreakers” with a vampire theme? As Ethan Hawke, the star of “Daybreakers” told me in a conversation, Ethan: The one thing I like about science fiction is its relevance to reality. If it’s rich in metaphors, there’s an awful lot one can draw on. That’s what I especially like about ‘Daybreakers’, the corporate infusion of today, into the aspects of a centuries old theme! There’s more with actor Ethan Hawke, including his biggest influence by an actor when he costarred with Denzel Washington who won best actor for “Training Day”

“Daybreakers”, vampires with a corporate twist Review by Stan Robinson Admittedly, I’m very fond of the vampire films of old. The Hammer Film Productions (England) of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s are among my favorites with Peter Cushing as Van Helsing, the vampire hunter. My recent favorites in the genre of recent times include the ‘Underworld’ movie series starring Kate Beckinsale and the pairing of Wesley Snipes and Kris Kristofferson in the “Blade” films as vampire hunters.

10

“Daybreakers” has the style and ominousness of the old, add today’s theme of corporate dominance throughout the world, and we have a multi-layered story of survival. It’s 2019. A plague has beset the Earth with most of humankind being transformed into vampires. With blood being the substance of life for vampires and most of mankind being infected, blood is becoming a rare

commodity. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured vampire dominant race plots their survival, while a researcher who’s also infected (Ethan Hawke), works with a covert group of humans on a way to save humankind. The look and feel of “Daybreakers” is reminiscent of traditional vampire movies, while introducing the elements of a society that’s a mere 10 years from now. And yes, for the ‘vampire’ theme purists, there are plenty of scares, blood, and vampire protocols to make one think twice about the next time you see or read ads for donating at the blood bank! Starring Ethan Hawke, Willem Defoe, Sam Neill, Claudia Karvan, Jay Laga’aia, and Damien Garvey. Written and directed by Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig; Lionsgate release. Rated R for strong bloody violence, language and brief nudity. Runtime: 98 minutes.

7-DAY ULTIMATE DIET CLEANSE Kick Off the New Year with a Bang If the holiday season has left you feeling heavy, bloated, and ready to make a change...try this rocksolid action plan to purify your body and kick off your New Year’s diet resolution with a BANG! This 7-day diet cleanse will melt away fat, banish bloat, crush cravings, and leave you feeling refreshed, energized, and slim! Get ready to cleanse your system and blast away fat to reveal a happier, healthier, more confident YOU! DONT’S 1. DON’T add sugar, other natural sweeteners (including honey, agave, and stevia), or artificial sweeteners to anything. Sugar, honey, and other calorie-containing sweeteners add 60 calories per tablespoon to your day’s intake, so you’ll save considerable calories by cutting out the sugar you typically add to your coffee, tea, cereal, beverages, yogurts, etc. Artificially sweetened foods may not have the calories of sugar-sweetened foods, but they keep sweetness on our taste buds and our minds. Cut out all added sugars (real and artificial) for at least a week to help you break free of your compulsion to eat sweet foods. Then, minimize your intake going forward. 2. DON’T add salt to anything. Eating foods with a lot of added salt causes you to retain water, which drives up the number on the scale and makes you feel uncomfortable. Part of this week-long cleanse is getting rid of salty foods that promote bloating.

12

3. DON’T eat starches with dinner (including bread, rice, pasta, peas, beans, corn and potatoes). People tend to overeat starches for a number of reasons: these foods have great mouth feel, it’s hard to estimate portions, they’re some of America’s favorite comfort foods, and they’re calorie-dense. People are especially conditioned to overeat these foods at dinner. By making them totally offlimits, you don’t have to cut yourself

off mid-meal (after you’ve already primed your tastebuds). 4. DON’T drink alcohol. Alcohol adds a lot of empty calories to your diet, plus it lowers your inhibitions so you’re more likely to veer off plan and make unhealthy food choices. By cutting out the alcohol, you’ll give your liver a well needed break and you’ll have firmer resolve to stick with the rest of the diet’s “do’s and dont’s.” DO’S 1. DO eat on a schedule and enjoy three meals and one snack each day. 2. DO drink lots of water throughout the day, including two 8-ounce glasses before lunch and two 8-ounce glasses before dinner. (These before-meal waters should be consumed up to 30 minutes before eating.) Enjoy as much additional water as you want during meals and throughout the day. 3. DO enjoy “water alternatives” in unlimited quantities at any point during the day. These include: coffee or tea with 1% or skim milk only, seltzer (plain and naturally flavored), sparkling water, club soda, or water with lemon/lime/orange wedges. 4. DO begin dinner with a healthy appetizer: a large tossed salad (with 2-3 tablespoons reduced-calorie dressing); a bowl of broth-based nonstarchy veggie* soup; or any plain vegetable such as a sliced cucumber, red pepper sticks or green beans. 5. DO indulge in non-starchy vegetables* in unlimited quantities at any time throughout the day, particularly when you get hungry between designated meal and snack times. 6. DO engage in 30 to 60 minutes of aerobic exercise everyday (walking is fine). Note* Non-starchy vegetables include: asparagus, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, green leafy vegetables, eggplant, green

MOMENTS TO REMEMBER Top Sports Stories of 2009

old Spaniard rode victoriously onto the top of the podium in Paris. Armstrong will be back as Bruyneel’s undisputed team leader next year, as Contador opted out immediately upon

that he would remain retired. That was so until Aug. 18, when Favre signed with the Vikings, forever changing his legendary status in Green Bay. To this point Favre has been fantastic, having an MVPcaliber season while leading the Vikings to a division championship and the playoffs. When news of Tiger Woods’ Nov. 27 early-morning car accident first surfaced, no one had any idea of the firestorm that was about to engulf the sporting world. Tabloid stories, alleging Woods had been having an affair, began gaining currency after they were originally dismissed. The women Tiger

Lance Armstrong got back on the bike after having retired three prior. At the age of 37, he rejoined director Johan Bruyneel’s Team Astana and rode to a third-place finish in the 2009 Tour de France in July. Armstrong’s return was greeted warmly by cycling fans and even many members of the peloton, but not by Alberto Contador, his Astana teammate and the 2007 Tour champ. Contador and Armstrong clashed constantly, both tactically and personally, throughout the threeweek race before the 27-year-

The image Woods had painstakingly built since turning pro in 1996 began to unravel, as advertisers reconsidered their relationships with him and the public’s view toward him turned negative. With his family life and endorsement deals in peril, Woods announced on Dec. 11 that he would be taking an indefinite break from golf. It may be too little, too late: On Dec. 13, Accenture became the first sponsor to drop Tiger, and on Dec. 16 reports surfaced that Tiger’s wife Elin would be filing for divorce.

completing the Tour. On Feb. 11, Brett Favre ended his one-year stint with the New York Jets and officially retired from the NFL, for the second time. In May, Favre asked to be released from the Jets reserved/retired list, thus allowing him to sign with any team and the speculation started. For the next two months the “will he or won’t he” story was all over the news, with most assuming Favre would sign with the Minnesota Vikings. But on July 28, Favre informed the Vikings

LIVE! SECTION LITA FORD – WICKED WONDERLAND (JLRG) Lita, just received a copy of your new CD ‘Wicked Wonderland’ and I wanted to offer my two cents. Take it for what it’s worth. I’m rather confused as to your musical path as of late. If you’re being true to yourself, that’s cool I guess. So after a 15 year absence from the music scene, one would hope this is your true vision and not you being influenced by other people’s vision of what you should be. With your husband Jim Gillette’s vocals all over the record and a barrage of industrial influenced 90’s era metal, I can’t help but wonder if you have radio reception since residing in the Caribbean . I’m just not hearing any SONGS here. I am

hearing Jim’s high pitched vocals more frequently than any guest vocalist on any album ever. I’m also hearing something that sounds more like a confusing, noncohesive effort. One might think you were a musical duo now a’la Simon & Garfunkel yet the album is credited to you. Heavy industrial noises that may have been hip 15 years ago and nothing resembling your past don’t help the fact that there are no songs on this album. I’m sure you put your best foot forward, but your fans were probably expecting something resembling what they loved from you. This record sounds like you were asked to contribute occasional vocals on someone else’s album. Sorry, I just don’t get it. Perhaps this is your “Elder” or “Shadowlife” (KISS and Dokken’s miserable musical failures). If so, learn and grow from it. When you are ready to do a real Lita Ford album, please let us know. – Stephen Wilkinson Rockzone Records, 2155 E.

News & Brews

C’mon, take a chance. Instead of ordering your usual “mainstream” beer, show some originality, some worldliness and ask for one of the better microbrews available in the desert. You may be amazed what a craft beer tastes like. Most have fuller taste (some call it stronger), but in nearly all cases, you will experience a taste that took the brewery years (or generations) to perfect. Quite a number of the beers are obscure in this country or state, yet they dominate in the areas they originated from. Certainly worth a pint...Cheers! BELL’S AMBER ALE Bell’s Amber is made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor. Bell’s Brewery, Inc., founded by Larry Bell as a home-brewing supply shop in 1983, sold its first beer in 1985.

small bottles, just like in Flying Dog Brewery’s new(ish) Canis Major Mixed 8-Pack of 7oz. Bottles. Two samples of four bold beers in small puppy-sized bottles. All in one box. Perfect for sharing, sampling and arguing about which one is your favorite. Look for these on the shelves of your favorite retailer, and if you don’t see them, ask.

Originally brewing in a 15-gallon soup kettle, the company grew rapidly on top of its first year’s 135 barrels (BBL = 31 gal.) of production. Bell’s Brewery has grown from a tiny operation renting part of a former plumbing supply warehouse, to a bustling, regional craft brewery that plays a role in changing the beerscape of our nation. ALASKAN INDIA PALE ALE (IPA) India Pale Ale is a style of ale originally derived from a colonial thirst for British-brewed beers. When shipping beer to the colonies, particularly India, thought had to be given to

the length of the journey. By initially brewing beer to high specific gravities it could continue to ferment during the journey. Larger amounts of hops were also added for their preservative properties and resulted in a golden beer with a hoppy flavor and higher alcohol content. The pronounced hop flavor makes this style of beer refreshing and a delicious accompaniment to grilled prawns, spicy food and as an aperitif.
