COLUMN 10 Dennis Hinkamp goes to see the new film ‘Noah’
CALENDAR 15 See what’s happening this week
Noah is back and bigger (and buffer) than ever. While the new film based on the story of the Old Testament prophet’s efforts to build a massive ark and continue life on this planet has stirred up plenty of controversy, “Noah” did top the box office last week after bringing in more than $44 million (see story on page 6). Last week, Cache Magazine movie critic Aaron Peck gave the film four stars, while this week, our resident humor columnist Dennis Hinkamp shares his thoughts on Russell Crowe’s latest (see column on page 10).
Who knows when I might get around to seeing “Noah,” but chances are, I’ll struggle a little bit with director and co-writer Darren Aronofsky’s non-religious take on the well-known story from the Bible. In order to enjoy it, I’m sure I’ll have to approach it the way I did some of my favorite movies from when I was a kid. You see, when I was young, I was a disaster movie junkie. Movies that should have scared me to death when I was 8 years old were unbelievably compelling. I loved the “Airport” movies, although my parents were wise enough to postpone taking me to see “Airport ’77” until we got back from my first plane trip to Hawaii, since they do crash a 747 into the ocean in that one. And I loved pretty much everything producer Irwin Allen did. Hollywood’s
“Master of Disaster” created classics like “The Poseidon Adventure” and “The Towering Inferno.” Allen also made “Flood,” a TV movie about a town wiped out when a dam breaks. “Flood” came out in November 1976, just about five months after the Teton Dam broke and overwhelmed my native Southeastern Idaho. That earthen dam cost about $100 million to build — a number “Noah” is sure to surpass at the box office within the month. Of course, the massive cleanup following the Teton Dam Disaster is what really ended up being costly. Needless to say, it is far better to clean up at the box office, and like it or not, that’s exactly what “Noah” is doing right now. — Jeff Hunter
“At this point (Russell) Crowe, along with the rock transformer guys, channels his inner ‘Gladiator’ and kills everyone who doesn’t want to just politely wait for the flood to kill them.”

Big movies coming soon
Summer film season gets an early start By Aaron Peck Cache movie critic
Hear that? That’s the sound of Hollywood constructing a Scrooge McDuck-sized vault to house 2014’s summer boxoffice take. Honestly, there really isn’t such thing as a Summer Movie Season anymore. Hollywood, in a desperate effort to fit in even more big-budget sequels, keeps creeping into the beginning of spring with huge tentpole releases. This year is no exception. You could argue that the Summer Movie Season starts this weekend with the release of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” So, that’s where we’ll start. We’re still

Just wait until they’re able to wrest the rights to SpiderMan away from Sony and the rights of X-Men away from Fox. Good grief! “Cap 2” is the (un)official start of the Summer Movie Season. See my review on page 7. “The Amazing SpiderMan 2” (May 2) – I actually enjoyed Sony’s 2012 reboot, warts and all.

Watercolors on display Summerfest scholarship
The Utah Watercolor Society Cache Valley Chapter and Logan Fine Art Gallery will present “Out Of The Box” from April 11 to May 3. A reception will be held during the bi-monthly CVCA Gallery Walk from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 11, at 60 W. 100 North. Many of the artists will be present. Winners of this competition will be announced at the reception at 7 p.m. What do you think of when you hear the words “Out Of The Box?” A watercolor artist has many restrictions in their traditional competitions. Often, using the white of the paper for highlights and brighter areas in the painting is the only white allowed. This type of painting is called transparent watercolor. Sometimes restrictions are lessened to allow opaque watercolor paint to be added, as well. But once a year there is a competition that allows artists total freedom in water media, and “Out Of The Box” is it’s name. In this competition, anything is accepted as long as it is a paint dissolvable in water. An artist can enter sculpted paintings, multi-media, include found objects, use 3D effects — the choices are endless. It’s a celebration of earth water and color. Artists love this competition because it stretches their abilities and their imaginations to borders and processes untried. Michael Bingham, a prominent Cache Valley artist who is familiar with thinking “Out Of The

At the risk of sounding like a curmudgeon, let me preface this by saying that most of the Marvel movies — “Thor: The Dark World” aside — are pure gun-toting, worldsaving, hero-worshipping entertainment. Marvel, along with Disney, has constructed a perfect formula for these movies. A formula that usually never lacks for enjoyment, even though its beats are blatantly obvious. The second stand-alone Captain America movie is joyful in its destruction while embracing the Marvel world’s standard movie routine. Contrary to the film’s title punctuation — “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” — Captain America isn’t actually the Winter Soldier. No, that’s a spoiler that I won’t discuss here, even though anyone who reads the comics, anyone who talks to people that read the comics, or anyone that saw the “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” TV spots knows exactly who the Winter Soldier is. No matter, you’ll find out soon enough. Continuing on after the events of “The Avengers,” Captain America (Chris Evans) finds himself living a fish-out-of-water lifestyle in the modern world. He even keeps a notebook listing all the
with its characters that it couldn’t even kill off Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) for good, instead bringing him back to star in his own TV series. Big bad villains come and go, but the status quo remains unchanged, because there’s always the next movie to think about. The most interesting aspect of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is the fact that this is just as much of a Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) movie as it is a Captain America movie. She’s inherently more interesting as she’s the one hero without any superpowers. It makes her much more vulnerable than the nearly invincible group she pals around with. We got a tiny taste of how distasteful Black Widow’s past is from “The Avengers,” but that storyline gets a little more meat on its bones here. It’s a welcome deviation from the movie’s wonton destruction. There are a few clever action scenes, especially

Kylee Price’s change of direction WORDS & PHOTOGRAPHS BY JEFF HUNTER
ylee Price was the subject of a story I wrote for Cache Valley Magazine in 2005. Nine years later, I’m not surprised that I’m writing another one. However, the focus of this story is not what I would have imagined nearly a decade ago. In 2005, I would have figured that any story I did on Kylee Price in 2014 would have to include dogs. And dog sleds. And more than likely the Iditarod. When I first met her, Kylee was just 14 years old and the primary focus of her life was mushing. She and her family had as many as 10 dogs sharing their home in Millville, and Kylee’s parents, Kermit and Teri Price, and her little brother, Kaden, spent many winter weekends packing up their dogs and equipment and driving to races throughout the Intermountain West. Looking back, I can remember Teri telling me that her daughter was also a musician. And while taking photos of Kylee feeding her dogs in Millville, I do recall that she was wearing a hoodie emblazoned with “Mountain Crest Orchestra” on
the front. But about a month ago, I was definitely surprised to see that Kylee Price would be performing at the fourth annual Cache Valley Cowboy Rendezvous in Hyrum. And once I saw her on the Elkhorn Stage, singing and playing the mandolin in between a couple of veteran musicians, it was clear that — for at least the time being
— Kylee Price’s passion for mushing has been replaced by a love of music. he former dog-sledding phenom is now 23 years old and performing country-Western music has indeed taken over her life. In fact, when I meet up with her on April Fool’s Day, she announces that she’ll soon be leaving Cache Valley and moving to St. Anthony, Idaho. Price often plays with Colt Angell, a cowboy musician who has been performing for more than 25 years, and the duo has lined up a regular gig playing at the Mill Iron Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyo. “We went and played at the Mill Iron Ranch on Valentine’s Day, and they kind of offered us a bit of a job,” Price explains. “My last final (at Utah State University) is May 2, so it will be roughly around May 2 that I move up there.” A native of St. Anthony, Angell says its an ideal spot to travel over to Jackson, as well as a wide variety of other places in need of cowboy music. “I actually booked a wedding up there this morning while I was in Walmart,” Angell says with a grin. After graduating from Mountain Crest High School in 2008, Price says she was initially focused on becoming a pharmacist. Although she’s been working the past couple of years at Cache Valley Hospital as a pharmacy technician, Price says she’s now exploring ways in which she can complete a degree in nursing while she’s in Idaho. “Then I’m thinking I might go back to school to become an anesthesiologist, but the RN is gonna be the first thing I get,” Price explains. Nine years ago, I would have bet that Price would get into medicine — albeit veterinary medicine. But after graduating from high school, Price was trying to hold down a full-time job while also attending USU. She says she realized that she simply didn’t have the time to run her dogs anymore, and over the years she ended up giving most of them away; some to Kate St. Onge, another accomplished Millville musher who has since moved to Colorado, and some to young mushers just trying to get started. “I have about three sled dogs left,” she says. “A couple of them are at my dad’s place, while I’ve kept her.” Price gestures towards Heidi, a one-time lead dog currently relaxing on the living room floor. “She’s retired,” Price adds. “She’s the designated pillow weight now.”
Heidi and Kylee’s final race came in 2008, just up the road from St. Anthony at the American Dog Derby in Ashton, Idaho. At the time, Price was battling pneumonia triggered by the flu that started with Kaden getting sick at another race in Casper. Kylee’s father was too sick to make the trip and her mother tried to talk her out of going to Ashton, but since she was the subject of a journalist’s story, she felt like she had to race despite her own illness. “I suffered,” she admits with a painful chuckle. “I was really, really sick. I had a fever, and I had lost a lot of weight. But I ended up winning that race by like 10 minutes.” or Kylee Price, there is a connection between mushing and music. She was about 15 when her and family went all the way to Dubois, Wyo., for a race, only to discover that because of a lack of snow, the kids’ race had been canceled. Price was determined to run, though, so she entered the adult race. “It was abut 14 miles, and it was eight dogs,” Price recalls. “My mom didn’t want me to do it because eight dogs is a lot of power; they’re pretty wild. But I did it. I went out in fifth, and when I came back first, my mom thought I had had a problem. I said, ‘No. I just passed everybody.” Price, who only ran adult races after that victory, took the $800 in prize money and put it towards the purchase of a mandolin. Prior to then, she had been borrowing a mandolin from Jan Nelson, her music teacher at Spring Creek Middle School and South Cache 8-9 Center, so she could play in a bluegrass band with three other girls called Full Deck. “Nelson is probably the best teacher I ever had for anything,” Price declares. Price started playing the piano when she was seven, and later learned how to play the fiddle. She says she can also play “a little bit of guitar,” but admits that she can’t read music. “It’s all done by ear,” Price says. “When someone says its in the key of whatever, I don’t understand what that means. All I know is I don’t like playing in the key of B. I learned that. I don’t what the notes are in it, but I know I don’t like playing in the key of B.” “She’s learning,” Angell insists. Price has also never had any formal voice lessons, but she insists that since taking the stage to sing for the first time at the inaugural Cache

Do I really have to say “spoiler alert” when I’m talking about movies made from parts of the Bible? These are the only movies that deserve the otherwise overused word “epic.” The problem with casting such historically famous characters is that you have to juxtapose them against their other rolls. Charlton Heston played John the Baptist, Moses and Ben Hur. He also played the guy captured by apes and ended his public life as an advocate for the National Rifle Association. His epic biblical movies were made before can-do-anything
every sentient being knows how the story of Noah’s Ark begins and ends, but if you don’t want to know the inbetween parts from this movie, you should stop reading now.

like just about anywhere in central Nevada. He, his wife and three children live in yurts and seemingly eat nothing other than the mold they can scrape off rocks. So right off you are thinking this is not a great place to assemble enough wood to build an ark and a really long trek for all the animals. On top of this, there are these huge, angry, rock transformer robotic things that hate people for ruining the planet. Fortunately, this is mostly easily solved because Methuselah, who is Noah’s grandfather, has magic sauce for just about everything.
Methuselah, played by Anthony Hopkins, is part Obi Wan, Yoda and E.T. and somehow survives in a cave in the West Desert. No trees, no water, no problem. He has a magic seed he pocketed from the original Garden of Eden that instantly grows a huge forest that will supply all the wood to build the ark. It’s like an instant Home Depot except that Noah and his family can’t really be expected to build an aircraft carrier-sized boat all by themselves, right? So the huge rock transformer guys (really, there don’t seem to ever be female transformers) decide that since Noah
is the only good human, they will pool their brute strength to help him build the ark. Meanwhile the bad humans, which is everyone other than Noah and family, are thinking they would like to go pirate on the ark. At this point Crowe, along with the rock transformer guys, channels his inner “Gladiator” and kills everyone who doesn’t want to just politely wait for the flood to kill them. Then it rains. A lot. Really fast. At this juncture Noah turns into a craggy Captain Ahab/ Bligh hybrid with blood See NOAH on Page 11

Books John Wayne bio hits the target dead center By Douglass K. Daniel Associated Press
Who’s that on the cover of Scott Eyman’s splendid biography of Hollywood’s most enduring movie star? Surely that wavy-haired young fellow in the suit and tie isn’t John Wayne. Where’s the Stetson, the Winchester rifle, the six-shooter, the boots and spurs? It would be easy to sell “John Wayne: The Life and Legend” with a picture of the Ringo Kid from “Stagecoach” (1939), the movie that made Wayne a star. How about the tough Marine sergeant from “Sands of Iwo Jima” (1949)? Or a picture of the one-eyed marshal Rooster Cogburn from “True Grit” (1969), the role for which Wayne won an Oscar? Eyman presents John Wayne as what he
really was — a generally good-natured actor and filmmaker who created and maintained a persona that Americans took to heart. It didn’t happen overnight or by accident. Wayne worked hard to learn his craft, developed a keen understanding of the movie business and became wildly successful at selling his product. The family of the boy born Marion Robert Mor-

The unicorns are nowhere to be seen. If you are wondering about the poop, food and eating each other problem, this dilemma is quickly solved with some sort of herbal incense smoke concoction that apparently does not affect humans. The animals sleep through the whole thing. There is an evil stowaway
rison in 1907 in Winterset, Iowa, moved to California when he was 7 or 8 and eventually settled in the Los Angeles suburb of Glendale. His father, Clyde Morrison, failed at nearly every business he tried and died a few years before his son reached stardom. That achievement never seemed to impress Mary Morrison, who would accept her oldest son’s generosity over the years with more sneer than smile while doting on his younger brother. Known by the nickname “Duke,” the Glendale High class president hoped that football as well as an A average would earn him an education at the University of Southern California. When an injury cost him his scholarship, Duke turned to work as a propman at the Fox studio to earn enough money to stay in school. Director John Ford took the handsome young go-
on the ark, which I don’t remember from the Bible. Also Noah is really conflicted over if he really wants to repopulate the earth with anything other than animals, so he almost kills his twin grandchildren. Since you are here reading this, you know how that turned out. As a side note, everyone has an intermittent English accent, and the depictions of Adam and Eve look like the glowing aliens from the “Cocoon” movies, I guess so they could keep the PG-13 rating. ——— Dennis Hinkamp hopes this does not offend anyone’s sensibilities.

getter under his wing and began giving him small roles. (Duke had appeared in high school plays and had worked backstage there, too.) A big break ended his college plans. But the newly named John Wayne — others at the studio came up with that moniker and he never assumed it legally — was wholly unprepared for the starring role in “The Big Trail” (1930). In spite of studio publicity for the picture and its young lead, the widescreen epic directed by Raoul Walsh failed at the box office. Two more duds ended Wayne’s contract at Fox. “That made it official,” Eyman writes. “John Wayne had been a whitehot new star at 22, and he was washed up at 23.” For much of the 1930s, Wayne appeared in some dramas and serials but mostly in low-budget Westerns shot in just days

Big Continued from Page 3 “Godzilla” (May 16) – Now this one is mighty intriguing. Director Gareth Edwards was recruited from indie movie success with his atmospheric sci-fi monster movie aptly titled “Monsters.” The last attempt at a modern-day “Godzilla” movie was disastrous. Just awful. Now instead of Matthew Broderick running around Manhattan, we get Bryan Cranston fresh off finishing “Breaking Bad.” The previews give this a much creepier, unsettling vibe. Perhaps we’ll get a smart sci-fi mixed with a classic monster movie. “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (May 23) – “X-Men: First Class” was really great. Probably my favorite comic book movie in the past five years. Yes, I like it even more than “The Avengers.” Time travel is always a tricky subject though. Will it be presented thoughtfully, or will the script call for too many timetravel paradoxes? “Transformers: Age of Extinction” (June 27) – Yep. There’s another one of these coming. Until Michael Bay proves us all wrong and makes a decent movie featuring Transformers, we can gloss over it entirely. Though, its worldwide box-office haul is going to be obscenely massive. “Fast & Furious 7” (July 11) – When the first couple “Fast & Furious” movies came out, I never thought we’d see the day where we were pitting them against huge 100-million-dollar studio moneymakers. That’s the case now, though. This is one of the hottest franchises in the world, believe it or not. These movies make enormous amounts of money. It’s unfathomable really. With the untimely death of Paul Walker, the seventh film feels like the most important of all. “Guardians of the Galaxy” (Aug. 1) – Existing in the same universe as “The Avengers,” “Guardians of the Gal-

It’s quite possible that the budgets for all of these films added up wouldn’t equal one of the tentpole budgets. Though, every year there are always hidden independent gems lost amongst the cinematic trees. These are a few that you may want to seek out. “Oculus” (April 11) – A mainstream horror movie which is rated R? In today’s world, where low-budget, PG-13 horror movies rake in the dough, this is quite a surprise. It might just pack in a few worthwhile scares. It’s about an evil mirror of doom in case you were wondering. “Under the Skin” (April 18) – I don’t know much about this movie. Nevertheless, what I do know about it is enough to get me to go. Picture this: Scarlett Johansson is an alien who seduces hitchhikers in Scotland. I’m so there. “Brick Mansions” (April 25) – One of Paul Walker’s final films, “Brick Mansions” is another undercover-copwho-infiltrates-a-gang-andtakes-them-down-from-theinside type of movie. “Chef” (May 9) – Jon Favreau isn’t directing “Iron Man” movies anymore. “Chef” is a complete directorial 180. It’s a miniscule budget, but Favreau (director and star), is still able to fill out the cast with a who’s who of Hollywood: Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Dustin Hoffman to name a few. This is by no means a comprehensive list. My allotted word-count limit forbids me to go any further. Yes, the tentpoles are important, and will make ungodly amounts of money. Let’s try to keep a look out for some of the lesser-known movies though. Every summer we’re provided with a fairly well-rounded cinematic landscape. Let’s take advantage of it.
The Bear River Watershed Council has issued a call for entries for its upcoming “Radiant or Ravaged” photo exhibit on the Bear River watershed. “We are asking photographers to search through their work and get out and take images that portray
the radiant beauty or ravaged impacts of the watershed and submit them for an exhibit in April,” says Dan Miller, chairman of the BWRC board. “We hope to engage amateur and professional photographers, as well as scientists, to take a close look at our local watershed — a place that sus-
tains life — with a different eye. Not only to see the beauty, but also to look the other direction toward the impacts from human activities that may not be beneficial to the environment, the watershed or human health.” For this exhibit, BRWC has partnered with photog-
raphy students in Utah State University’s Department of Art and Design. “We want to get the word out to the public and specifically scientists and photographers,” says USU photography student Beth Hansen. “We want to get everyone thinking about issues and how they can

But I don’t get that closed-throat feeling anymore.” Price, who credits veteran Western musicians Ernie Sites and Brian Arnold with helping provide advice and direction, currently just performs cover songs while on stage, but she hopes to have enough original material completed to record a CD within the next year. She also wants to travel to other cowboy gatherings around the West, while keeping one eye on the future … a future that might just include the past. “The Iditarod is still a goal,” Price says. “I still want to do it, but it’s farther in the future after I’ve settled down and I can focus on it. I’ve got a lot going on now, and I don’t have the time to focus on it.” Price says she’s still friends with many

Continued from Page 4 Most recently, the CCB has come under the baton of retired musical educator Dan Stowell. With music degrees from Utah State University, and an ABD in doctoral studies in music education and conducting from the University of Northern Colorado, Stowell is more than up to the task. Since standing at the head of the band, Stowell has a vision “to get as many people who play as possible.” “Everyone who plays with the group is a ‘starter’, not second- or third-string,” Stowell says. The CCB welcomes any who wish to play or any skill level, no matter how recently they have played their instrument. The group has regular rehearsals at 7 p.m. on Thursdays at Mount Logan Middle School.
Sequel Continued from Page 7 the car chase towards the beginning. Computer-generated effects are abundant and usually destroyed in a series of ear-popping explosions. The final 15 minutes feel terribly anti-climactic as each hero is paired up with their own personal hand-to-hand showdowns with the villains that match their abilities. Then there’s the post-credit sequence, which it seems everyone is more excited for than the actual movie. Of course it sets up the next movie, and it’s at that point that we realize nothing has really changed. We’re just moving on to the next Marvel moneymaker.
