3 Two stars: ‘Monuments
FROM THE EDITOR
7 ‘The Lego Movie’ is sure
As I write this, it’s just after 10 a.m. on Thursday, and less than three hours ago I finished “The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History” by Robert M. Edsel and Bret Witter. Coincidentally, the film version of “The Monuments Men” hits theaters on Friday, so the timing is seemingly perfect for me to go from reading the book to watching the movie this weekend. Or is it? Within the past hour, I’ve edited Aaron Peck’s less-than-favorable review of “Men” (two stars), along with the Associated Press’s similar critique (two and a half stars). Unfortunately, that makes me a little less excited to plunk down another 10

bucks or so to see George Clooney’s film on top of the $15 I spent buying the book. Regular Cache readers might remember that I did something similar about a year ago, reading “Argo” just prior to watching Ben Affleck’s movie version. The difference there was, “Argo” was already out on DVD and had garnered great reviews. But while I enjoyed that movie, which went on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture, in retrospect, I liked the book better. It was, after all, the true story as told by CIA agent Tony Mendez, not the somewhat Hollywood-ized version presented in the movie. It now seems I’m destined to feel the same way about “The Monuments Men.” Shortly after buying the book just after Christmas, I suddenly thought, Wait a minute. Wasn’t the movie supposed to come out before Christmas? Turns out it was. Clooney apparently
pushed the release date back in order not to be rushed. Rumor has it, though, that he also wanted to change the feel of the movie and add more humor. While there’s a chance that could be effective when you’re involving great actors like Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray and John Goodman, I have to say that there’s not a lot of chuckles to be found in the book. It’s simply the story of the men (and one remarkable French woman) who did all they could do to salvage Europe’s great art treasures during and after World War II. It’s a great story, and I desperately hope that Clooney — who was a producer on “Argo” — somehow manages to do it justice. It’s never easy, of course, to condense a long book into a movie, but I still want to believe that 118 minutes of “The Monuments Men” is worth more than two stars.

‘Men’ a misstep for Clooney WWII film gets lost between being a drama and a comedy By Aaron Peck Cache movie critic
There isn’t one single moment in “The Monuments Men” where it’s easy to pinpoint where things go wrong. It’s just this sort of feeling you get as the movie continues on as a semi-slapstick caper adventure. Like a weird crossbreed of “O Brother, Where Art Thou” and “Ocean’s Eleven,” both of which are much better films than George Clooney’s fifth directorial effort.

A committee of 15 devoted organizers plan the festival every year. Many more think up new recipes and whip up fabulous sweets. They all enjoy support from a crew of 40 volunteers who serve desserts and keep the event running smoothly. An additional 20 amateur chocolate experts serve as judges and carry out the surprisingly difficult task of tasting all the entries and choosing prizewinners. A student volunteer, Paige Helmick has made the Valentine Chocolate Festival an annual tradition. “It’s a fun event and a great cause,” she says. “Plus eating chocolate

‘The Monuments Men’ ‘Ride Along’ stays on top pulls an A-team cast LOS ANGELES (AP) — When a leading Hollywood actor decides to make a movie, casting usually becomes as easy as dialing some of your closest A-list buddies. At least that’s the way it worked for George Clooney on the new World War II drama, “The Monuments Men,” opening Friday. “Well, they are friends so that part is easy,” Clooney said in a recent joint interview with the cast. “But you know the truth is, they wouldn’t do it if they didn’t like the screenplay. ... I mean I flew to Australia for one day to hand Cate (Blanchett) the

LOS ANGELES (AP) — With Super Bowl XLVIII weekend in full swing, “Ride Along” remained strong, steering Universal Pictures into the No. 1 slot in a surprising three-week takeover at the box office. Topping multiplex sales since setting a January debut record when opening over the Martin Luther King holiday weekend with $48.6 million, the buddy cop comedy, starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, made $12.3 million, as it nears a $100 million domestic total, according to studio estimates Sunday. “I don’t think anyone would have seen that coming,” Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak, said of “Ride Along.” Disney’s “Frozen,” now the fourth highest-grossing domestic animated release ever, is in second place with $9.3 million. The studio rereleased a singalong version of the film, as the movie’s soundtrack remains No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The film’s signature track “Let It Go,” sung by Idina Menzel, is among the top 30 on Billboard’s Hot 100. “Frozen” singalong shows, featured in 2,057 theaters out of 2,754, added
$2.2 million, as the film crossed the $360 million mark domestically. “’Frozen’ is a movie that will not quit,” says Dergarabedian. “It’s been out for 11 weeks and it’s still relevant. By adding this sing-along component, they basically assured themselves a No. 2 spot this weekend.” Another family film, Open Road Films’ squirrel comedy “The Nut Job,” took the fourth-place slot with $7.6 million, bringing its domestic total to $50 million. Focus Features’ chick flick from a male point of view, “That Awkward Moment,” starring Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller, took third place in its opening weekend with $9 million. “The critics were not kind to this movie and it’s sort of a pre-Valentine’s Day film that’s an antidote to the Super Bowl,” Dergarabedian said. Universal’s “Lone Survivor” stands strong in the fifth slot with $7.2 million, as it notably crosses the $100 million mark, making this Mark Wahlberg’s 7th film to cross that milestone. Others have included “Planet of the Apes,” ‘’Ted,” ‘’The Departed,” ‘’The Other Guys” and “The Italian Job.”

It’s understandable that one would be apprehensive going into a corporately branded film like “The Lego Movie.” One might assume that they’re in for a 90-minute Lego commercial. At least that’s the anxiety I had when I entered the theater to watch the newest film from the directing duo Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”). To put it bluntly, I should’ve had more faith in these guys. Here’s a movie so delightfully imaginative that you completely forget you’re watching a movie named after a popular product, which is a gigantic feat in itself. Lord and Miller have crafted a colorfully animated film, seamlessly blending stop-motion animation with computer graphics. It’s brazenly funny, continuing on with the same type of observational, deadpan humor that made “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” such a nice surprise. Not only that, but these guys understand why kids

Parker Burningham, who plays Marchbanks, worked to find the real person behind his character’s lofty poetry. “I wanted to bring him to life — it was a challenge and a fun process,” says Burningham, who also mastered an upper crust British accent for the role. Isaac Spooner adds that performing in “Candida” is an opportunity to hone important technical skills like enunciation. “People see that you’ve done Shaw,
and they know that you know how to speak. Period pieces are good on your resume because they aren’t done as often,” says Spooner, who plays Rev. Alexander (Lexy) Mill, a young curate who works with Morell. USU’s theater arts program strives to give students experience with a wide range of material to prepare them for graduate school or work as actors, Moore says. Spooner praises the university’s faculty for providing a preview of professional life. “We leave here knowing how to work with a director and with decent networking connections,” he says. “There is a lot of professionalism. That’s a strength at USU.” Along the way, the cast members also became close, often hanging out together after rehearsals. “This cast is so unified,” says Kayli Jackson, who plays Candida. “It is hardly work when you’re with your friends.” Richard Johnson — Candida’s blustery father, Mr. Burgess — feels the group has given some of their best performances to date, delivering a play that is both fun and thought provoking. “Whatever we are doing, we want to make people reflect on their lives,” he says. “Theater asks what it is to be human.” Kailin Vannatter — Morell’s secretary, Proserpine Garnett — agrees. “We hope that people will come and see what they can relate to in the story.”
America is not really a melting pot; if it were we would all be a currycolored puddle. That’s why it is probably better to talk about the reality of diversity. America, like the Super Bowl, is really a big, bawdy, jumbled-up mess that most of the time seems to work. We can’t all get along, except for once in a while we can. I was glad to see so much diversity at last Sunday’s Super Bowl, from the retro soul, mosh pit, mashup, musical halftime show, to the subtly brilliant Cheerios ad, to the bold, inyour-face “America the Beautiful” Coca-Cola ad. I have no idea how breakfast cereal and sugar-laden beverages can bring us together, but it is worth a try. If these companies are willing to spend $4 million to send out a warm fuzzy during an otherwise warrior sport, I’m all for it. It was a pretty horrible game even if you were a Seattle Seahawks fan, so the commercials and halftime show definitely were highlights in an otherwise lowlights game. I spent the first half of the game riding my exercise bike trying to give meaning to a futile effort by gelded Broncos. I spent most of the second half trying to figure out when to give the game a mercy killing. I knew there wouldn’t be a comeback, but I was hoping at least for some more good commercials. In this respect the Super Bowl did not disappoint. There were Maserati, Jaguar and Audi ads? If you have the money

Books ‘Archetype’ looks at how memories define us If you were born again but lacked the memories of this lifetime, would you be you? And if you weren’t, who would you be? Those are the fundamental questions in M.D. Waters’ gripping debut novel. Emma wakes from an accident to an enviable situation. She’s married to an attractive and wealthy man who wants nothing more than to make her happy. But slowly, lies surface. Despite claims that they have been married for years, her doting husband is surprised by her talent as an artist. He buys her a perfume that she’s allergic to. And then there is
Lego Continued from Page 7 who knew how to make movies, decided to make one. Their film is keenly aware of every single reason why Legos have been, and always will be, so popular. It doesn’t rely on cheap pop culture jokes that will be dated a couple years down the road either. The jokes here are usually all in context of living in a world made of Legos. It’s zany, off-the-wall humor is intoxicating. It never relents either; a streaming consciousness of clever observations, quick wit and perfect timing. Seriously, this is a great film.
the voice in her head — another woman who shares memories of a camp where women are trained to be obedient wives, a water-filled tank from which she cannot escape, and perhaps most disturbingly, love for another man. Emma becomes convinced that she is the
voice in her head and that she was plucked from a previous life that she can barely remember. The truth, when it comes, is even more disturbing. She shares genes with the woman who is the voice in her head, but she is not her; Emma is a clone. The husband she loves is not hers. The child she longs for is not her daughter. The revelation leaves Emma reeling and sets off a chain of events that destroys her life and that of her original. “Archetype” is the literary equivalent of a bigscreen blockbuster with its beautiful but deadly heroine, tragic love triangle and grim futuristic setting. The closest thing in print may be Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” but Emma is

Offred with mixed martial arts training. Given a chance to flee the maledominated, baby-obsessed culture in which she has been ensnared, Emma picks up a gun and goes down fighting. Except that’s not the end. “Archetype” finishes with a cliffhanger made even more tantalizing by Dutton’s promise to publish the sequel, “Protoype,” in six months. The prospect has me more excited than the next “Hunger Games” movie.

A free lecture open to the public, the event features three men sharing experiences from World War II and its aftermath, including a Dutchman (Henny Verhoef), a German (Edgar R. Lewandowski) and an American (Rex Thompson). Henny Verhoef Verhoef was born in Utrecht, the fourth-largest city in The Netherlands. His Holland home was on the pathway of the Allies bombing and fightersupport runs between England and Germany.

He assumed that would be his profession when he returned, but instead he became a postman who had basically the same route for 30 years. Thompson is affectionately known to his friends as “Pops,” and he and Edna recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary.

perform string concert Feb. 13
The Ambassadors from the Mountain West String Academy will be performing under the direction of James McWhorter at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, at the Logan Tabernacle. That concert is in preparation of the MWSA’s Ambassadors trip to Salt Lake City on Friday, Feb. 14, to perform with professional and elite musicians from around the state at Abravanel Hall. The Mountain West String Academy began teaching a string class in 1999 at Providence Elementary School. Parents paid on a monthly basis to get the program started. In 2003, string classes were being taught in the fourth and fifth grades at all Cache County School District elementary schools. Students learn to play the violin, viola, cello or bass. It is so important to begin a student’s string education in the fourth grade so that when they reach middle schools and high schools they have developed a strong commitment and knowledge of string playing and music. With this knowledge they further develop practice skills and dedication that will carry on in all areas. These skills help them to work together with others as a team, and understanding the language of music which helps them develop an appreciation for music and its different styles. Music can help them in basic areas such as math, science, history, English and the most important thing of all, confidence.

or to reserve your spot, contact Royella at 753-5353 ext. 105. The speaker for the February meeting of the Cache Valley Historical Society will be Clark Puffer. Clark received university degrees from USU and BYU and spent his professional career in education. After reading five books on the Mountain Meadow Massacre, Clark became so fascinated that he interviewed some descendants of massacre participants and wrote “Mountain Meadow Massacre Condensed History” in which he identifies the major organizers and leaders and the roles they played. He also sets forth the political and religious conditions of the time that probably colored the thinking of these leaders and fostered this brutal and unfortunate event. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12, at the Historic Cache County Court House. The program is free and the public is invited to attend. Do you use the Logan Library?
