For the upcoming New Mexico legislative session scheduled to begin in January 2020, impact aid funding is expected to be a subject of great debate for tribes as it relates to the Yazzie/Martinez vs. State of New Mexico case, which led to a landmark ruling in 2018 for the future of education in the state with far reaching implications for Navajo students in public school systems. During its most recent session, the New Mexico State Legislature approved House Bill 250, the Native American Student Needs Assessment, which was then signed into law by New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. The bill created new sections of the 2003 Indian Education Act that require historically def i ned I nd ia n i mpa cted

T he STEM Cha l lenge structure is simple. Over the course of the semester, each ten-person student team will create a prototype/model that solves a real-world problem in response to the Challenge theme, wh ich is, Keepi ng

t h e Wo r l d S a f e r U s i n g Technology. Partnered NM industry employers will evaluate the proposed solutions based on quality and demonstration of skills required for STEM careers in N.M. The top teams will receive $5,000 and present at the Statewide Showcase held December 7 at Los Lunas High School. “We a re thr illed to see schools participating from around the state, giving the STEM Challenge a diversity that is absolutely necessary to accomplish our mission of showing students that if they study hard in Science, Tech nolog y, Eng i neer i ng, a nd M a t h , t hey c a n ge t great jobs right here in New Mexico,” N.M.

RESISTING ARREST Thoreau, Sept. 1 McK i n ley County Sheriff Sgt. Anthony Mora les ha s no pr oble m identifying the man sitting under the tree. It was Joshua Jason Jim, 26, of Thoreau, a man who had had several dealings with sheriff ‘s deputies in the past. On this occasion, Sept. 1 at about 6 pm, Morales had gone to the Speedway Gas Station in Thoreau in response to a call about a man trying to fight with customers. Morales said he told Jim to stand up, but he ignored the command. Morales said he observed several signs that Jim may have been intoxicated. When Morales again told him to stand up, he did and Morales escorted him to his police vehicle . As he attempted to place handcuffs on him, Morales said Jim spun around and attempted to punch him. Morales said he then pushed Jim toward his unit and attempted to gain control, but Jim made another attempt to punch him in the face. Once again, Morales said, he backed away and avoided being hit. Morales said he then used his right knee to strike Jim’s left thigh, causing him to double over. Morales said

he was then able to take him to the ground and as he did, Jim landed on his back and his head hit the ground. He was then able to place Jim in handcuffs. Since he was bleeding from the head, Morales called for an ambulance. Morales said he then attempted to pat Jim down for weapons as he continued to resist by trying to kick him. He then placed Jim back on the ground on his stomach. Jim continued to resist as they waited for the ambulance. He was still belligerent when the ambulance came. Medical personnel examined Jim and gave him a medical clearance at which time he was transported to the county jail and charged with assault on a police officer and resisting arrest.

OPINIONS LETTER TO THE EDITOR

‘Trump is the laughing stock of the world’

E

ditor, W it h t he 2 0 2 0 U. S . P r e s ide nt i a l Campaign underway, the likelihood of having more debates with challengers to Donald Trump has taken a new turn with two Republicans joining the race, with former Representative Joe Walsh of Illinois entering on August 24th launching his bid for the Republican nomination, and Bill Weld, the former governor of Massachusetts. Twenty Democratic candidates are still in the mix although the requirements to stay i n the race have been more of a challenge for them than Trump; they must top one percent in three polls from pollsters  approved by t he Democrat ic Nat iona l

GUIDE TO THE STARS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 9

A First Quarter Moon appears on Sept. 5. This is the perfect time to take stock of your life. What do you want? Madame G recommends that you take time to enjoy your life and spend time with your loved ones. You are more than capable of steering the ship of your life where you want. Good luck!

ARIES (March 20- April 19)

CANCER (June 21-July 20)

LIBRA (Sept. 23- Oct. 22)

Don’t stress. Take a deep breath and allow a wonderful cleansing breath into your body. All is well. Remember, breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Repeat it for me, breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Good work! You can do this. Your family will appreciate your honesty and your new outlook.

Life is what you make it and you can make yours great. This is not the time or place to try making others into your vision. You must learn to accept what you can’t change. If you can’t accept it, then it might be time to leave. No one should force you into a position that is illegal, immoral, or damaging, but if it doesn’t fit those categories - you might be wrong.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21- Jan 19)

Don’t give up hope now. Create a life that you’re proud to lead. Focus on tying up things left undone over the summer season and create room for new energy. Self care matters, so don’t push yourself beyond your limits. You may have to pass up a few social invitations to catch up on shuteye.

TAURUS (April 20- May 20)

LEO (July 22- Aug. 22)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23- Nov. 21)

Be kind to those around you. You never know when you may need a friend or someone to lean on. The best thing you can do is offer what you can right now, today. You don’t need to be perfect. You don’t need to give anyone anything or do anything. Instead, try to focus on just being there for your friends. Be. That is all you need to do.

Don’t waste time trying to “fix” others and make them “better,” all you really do is upset them. If you want to reach people, really reach people, you must take yourself less seriously. You can’t make others conform to your dreamed up reality. It might be a nice place to live, but your loved ones have their own idea of heaven. Learn to live and let live. Good luck!

Change your mind, change your life. You never know who will have a positive impact on your life. It could be a barista at Starbucks, your son-in-law, or someone you’ve never met. Embrace this interesting time and enjoy the people around you. You may think you know it all, but that might be an illusion. There are great and wondrous things to be learned and enjoyed each day.

Don’t avoid the hard work just because you want to get a way for a minute. Take plenty of time for yourself and don’t get trapped into thinking the worst about yourself. You are more than capable. Be humble! But, don’t bring yourself down or make yourself less for other people. They can learn to appreciate who you are or lose you. The choice is simple. You are awesome!

GEMINI (May 21- June 20)

VIRGO (Aug. 23- Sept. 22)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 20)

Take a moment to ask yourself, who are you really? Don’t shrink from the answer, embrace it. If you’ve been racing around on an adrenaline high trying to save the world, make some room in that busy schedule for self-care. Take time for working out, walking, meditating, personal time and space. Make appointments with yourself for serenity. OPINIONS

Go boldly wherever you go! Do not back down from challenges just because you’re scared. You must face each day as if it were your last. Look out at the world and experience a new day. The time is near. You will be okay. Let go of your fear and embrace the life you should have been living all along. Good luck, my friend. Keep your eyes, ears and heart open to possibilities.

Take care of your family and live the life you’ve always wanted. Don’t give up and keep pushing forward. How can you determine where best to spend your energy? Back up your dreams with a logical system that involves data. There will be some research involved in order to make your best decisions.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20- Feb. 18) Peace be with you. Don’t ignore what your gut is telling you. You know what you can handle and what you can’t. Don’t judge yourself for being human. Believe in yourself. Know that you’re as capable as anyone. You have talents that many don’t. Use them to help others and you’ll discover something wonderful about yourself. Good luck!

PISCES (Feb. 19- March 19) Don’t be afraid to reach out to a friend! Make sure you aren’t overloading your schedule with back-to-the-grind duties. Who would you like to get closer to before 2019 is through? Now’s the time to foster those deeper, stronger connections.

Marilee Petranovich, 57, passed away peacefully at home on September 1, 2019 after a battle with cancer. She was born on May 22, 1962 in Baltimore, Maryland. She made friends all across the country as she and her family lived in Maryland, North Carolina, Minnesota, Texas, and Alaska before settling in Gallup, NM in 1973. She graduated from Gallup High School in 1980 and then from the University of New Mexico in 1984 with a degree in psychology. When her first child was born she decided to be a stay-at-home mom and spent the next 18 years dedicated to loving, teaching, and helping her three kids grow. She then felt called to become a Lobo once again and started to work at the UNM-Gallup branch where she remained for many years, most recently working as the Senior Public Relations Specialist. Always aspiring to learn more and serve the UNM community, she became a UNM student once again and graduated with a Masters in Educational Leadership in 2016. In addition to her love of UNM, Marilee also enjoyed biking, exercise classes, knitting, cross- stitching, cooking, reading, and spending time with family. She is survived and missed dearly by her husband of 34 years Steve, son Sean Petranovich, daughter-in-law Christine Petranovich, daughters Kaitlin and Colleen Petranovich, parents Jim and Meg Johnson, brother Jay Johnson and his wife Lavern, grandson Owen, as well as several nephews, nieces, and cousins. She eagerly anticipated the arrival of her first granddaughter later this fall.

‘IT Chapter Two’: not as strong as chapter one, but still offers, thrills, chills By Glenn Kay For the Sun

RATING: ««« OUT OF «««« RUNNING TIME: 169 MINUTES

I

t has been two years since the release of It, an adaptation of Stephen King’s 1986 novel. The film became a blockbuster and grossed more than $700 million dollars worldwide on a relatively small budget. The follow-up arrives this week and is likely critic-proof, as those who went to the original picture will no doubt line up to see how it all plays out. Admittedly, IT Chapter Two isn’t quite as effective as the previous entry, but it still features some entertaining moments and a finale that will satisfy horror fans. It is 27 years after the supernatural child-devouring clown Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård) was defeated by a band of outcast children. In the years since, they all have gone their separate ways. But after strange events start up once again in Derry, the adult gang is called back to reunite against the evil force. However, time, distance and supernatural factors have caused some of them to forget what they went through. And when they begin to recall events

Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård) in “IT Chapter Two” (2019) follow-up 27 years lager, to an eerie thriller by Stephen King about a frightening clown named Pennywise, who devours children. Photo Credit: Warner Brothers and find themselves in mortal danger, some are more inclined to leave town than revisit their childhood traumas. But as each is attacked once again, they all realize that they have little choice but to try and finish Pennywise off for good. This follow-up is a bit too lengthy for its own good, running at close to three hours. Additionally, there are extra flashbacks with the younger cast as the older members try to remember more of their past. Only this time, these earlier interactions aren’t as urgent or threatening as the adventures depicted in the previous picture. It isn’t as frightening a flick either, although the issues

that make it less chilling are unavoidable. While there’s something inherently distressing about seeing a killer clown target, terrorize and devour innocent and fragile children, it’s a slightly tougher sell to see sharper, more physically able adults face off against the same figure. In fact, the filmmakers seem to acknowledge this and have their heroes wisecrack more often while being terrorized. As a result, this is actually a much funnier movie than its predecessor. In particular, Richie (Bill Hader) is given many opportunities to comment amusingly on the horrors being endured. Sharp observations

delivered by this character hit the mark, although the film does occasionally try to inject humor from others at more awkward and inappropriate moments (particularly during a scene involving some black bile). Some of the stranger interjections hurt the picture, resulting in a lower number of jolts and jumps. Besides Richie, other standout characters in the piece include the adult Bill (James McAvoy), Beverly (Jessica Chastain) and Ben (Jay Ryan), who are all still suffering from various neuroses and unfinished business that, even decades later, have yet to be resolved. They all acquit

themselves well, even selling a few ruminations about the past and a couple of borderline corny moments involving personal relationships. These fine actors manage to pull it off and keep the drama afloat. And although this sequel isn’t as scary, there are a few chills to be had. There is a scene involving the clown enticing a youngster under a bleacher stand that is eerie. And the movie includes excellent visuals such as a group member facing off against a violent Paul Bunyan statue, and another confrontation between a character and Pennywise inside a carnival funhouse. And those who remember the original miniseries based on the book, will find the climax to be far more efficiently and excitingly handled in this film adaptation. Most who take in the movie will admit that it takes a bit of time for the story to get up to speed and it has more difficulty sustaining tension, but these problems may be a result of following the source material too closely. While it could stand to be trimmed and doesn’t always send chills down the spine, it’s engaging and generally works. IT Chapter Two doesn’t read like a masterpiece, but still provides enough thrills to finish off the horror epic effectively. V i s i t : w w w . CinemaStance.com

DVD/Blu-ray Roundup for September 6, 2019 By Glenn Kay For the Sun

H

ope everyone out there who was celebrating Labor Day had a great day off. Despite the holiday, distributors are back in business today and releasing a huge number of Blu-rays and DVDs in a wide variety of genres. So if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!

BIG NEW RELEASES! Absolution – Also known as Harmony, this teen fantasy/ romance film from Australia follows a young woman with the ability to absorb the fears of those around her. This gift troubles the lady, who suffers against a growing build-up of negative energy. Apparently, she must find true love to counteract the effects of her unwanted power. The film ha s been adver tised as the first chapter in The Five Frequencies saga, but I

wouldn’t hold out much hope for any follow-ups. It didn’t get much of a release in this part of the world and those who did see the flick didn’t write highly of it, suggesting that the dialogue is clumsy and the story does little to involve curious viewers. The cast includes Jacqueline McKenzie, Eamon Farren, Salvatore Coco and Lewis Fitz-Gerald. Behind the Bullet – This documentary deals with gun use and shootings in America. The press synopsis promises a movie that not only deals with the impact of losing a loved one, but also the impact it has on the person who has pulled the trigger. Four individuals are interviewed, each of whom either shot and killed a person accidentally, or in self-defense. It explains what firing a gun did to them psychologically, as well as the thoughts and struggles that have followed the act. This small picture has only played at a couple of film festivals (Slamdance and Suncreen, specifically), so there hasn’t been much written about the

final results. Interested viewers will simply have to take a chance on it. Booksmart – Struggling under the weig ht of their studious high school routine, a pair of honor students decides to go out and make up four years of lost partying just before graduation. They head out for a night on the town and get themselves into all sorts of odd situations, while also dealing with some unresolved issues in their personal lives. This comingof-age comedy received great notices from the press. One or two reviewers didn’t think that it was as sharp as it could have been, and followed genre conventions too closely, but almost everyone believed the characters were charming and thought the scenarios effectively dealt with modern teen issues while delivering laughs. It stars Kaitlyn Dever, Beanie Feldstein, Jessica Williams, Jason Sudeikis, Lisa Kudrow and Will Forte.

I Got the Hook-Up 2 – This sequel to the 1998 comedy about a pair of scam artists/ stolen goods dealers picks up with the two having gone legit and starting their own successful restaurant. When a nasty health inspector threatens to shut their family business down, a couple of young hustlers step up with a scheme to try to help them survive the threat. This follow-up appears to have gotten a limited release a couple of months ago, but there aren’t any reviews for it online as of this writing. So those interested in seeing what happened to these characters over the past two decades will have to take a chance and give it a look on disc. Master P, Anthony Johnson, Tommy “Tiny” Lister, D. C. Young Fly and FatBoy SSE headline the feature. Loopers: T he Caddie’s Long Walk – Anybody who turns on the television most weekends is bound to see a professional golf tournament on the air. This documentary details one aspect of it that many don’t think about… the role of the caddie. The movie explains how the position developed and how over time the people carrying the clubs and balls began to start offering great advice to the players. The film additionally includes interviews with numerous PGA pros and their stories about caddies. Critics didn’t mind this non-fiction effort. A small contingent thought it was a little bland and didn’t really get deep into the rougher aspects of the job, but the majority found it an entertaining and amusing look at the game’s unsung heroes. Bill Murray narrates the picture. Ma – A group of teens hoping to party and score some booze asks a random woman to help them out. The friendly lady agrees and even lets them get together and socialize on her property...as long as they follow her eccentric rules. Initially, it seems like an amazing deal for the kids. However, they soon realize that breaking their host’s specific requests may have dangerous and even deadly consequences. Reaction was split toward this horror picture (although it did receive a few more approvals than pans). Those who

disliked the picture found it corny and thought the talent in front of and behind the camera was capable of more than schlocky jolts. Still, slightly more were entertained by the lead performance and said it provided both creepy and campy fun. It features Octavia Spencer, Juliette Lewis, Diana Silvers, McKaley Miller and Luke Evans. Men in Black: International – Call it a spinoff or a sequel, this new take on the sci-fi comedy series follows two agents hired to investigate crimes involving aliens and supernatural forces. When an assassination attempt is made on an alien aristocrat in London, a recruit and her partner discover that a sinister mole has worked its way into their agency. The heroes must stop the threat and save the day. Write-ups were less-thanstellar for the latest addition to the series. A couple of reviewers enjoyed the chemistry between the two leads enough to grant it a pass. Still, the consensus was that the screenplay left its heroes adrift and didn’t provide anything memorable for them to do. It stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Rebecca Ferguson, Kumail Nanjiani and.Rafe Spall. Nightmare Cinema – The latest horror anthology to hit screens revolves around a group of visitors to a movie theater. As the show unfolds, they begin to witness a group of short films detailing their deepest and darkest fears. Notices for this independent picture were generally upbeat. A segment of reviewers did complain that after delivering the goods with the first tale, the following stories were more hit-and-miss. Overall, far more felt that this was an above-average horror anthology that delivered on the chills and grossout fun, recommending it to genre enthusiasts. The cast i ncludes M ickey Rou rke, Richard Chamberlain and Adam Godley, and boasts directors Alejandro Bruges (Juan of the Dead), Joe Dante (T he Howling, G remlins, T h e Ho l e), M ick Ga r r i s (Critters 2, Sleepwalkers), Ryuhei Kitamura (Versus, The

DVD REVIEW | FROM PAGE 18 Midnight Meat Train) and David Slade (Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night) behind the camera. Squadron 303: The Battle of Britain – WWII is featured in this historical drama about a highly regarded air squadron featuring refugee Polish pilots who flew with the RAF and fought to free their country from Nazi forces. According to records, they shot down three times more enemy planes than any other allied squadron. Alas, this UK /Poland co-production did not hit the mark with the press. While all of them thought that the real story was fantastic material for a feature film, they noted that the small budget let the movie down. They wrote that less-than-impressive visual effects hindered the picture greatly and noted that the characters and dialogue weren’t well realized either, making this effort a misfire. The cast includes Piotr Adamczyk, Kirk Barker, Gabriela Calun and Maciej Cymorek. Win d: De m o n s of t h e Prairie – Also known as The Wind, this western/horror is set in the late 1800s and deals with the harsh conditions experienced by a woman living on the plains. As circumstances get worse and she experiences symptoms of mental illness, unexplained super natural events raise the stakes to even more dangerous levels. Critics were very positive about this

chiller. A tiny percentage didn’t care for the storytelling and couldn’t get involved with the plight of the protagonist. However, the overall reaction was that the independent feature was technically accomplished, focused on some interesting and unique aspects around its female lead and worked well as a haunting allegory. It stars Caitlin Gerard, Julia Goldani Telles and Ashley Zukerman.

BLASTS FROM THE PAST! There are plenty of interesting catalog titles being released in high definition this week. Kino is putting out a Blu-ray of Alps (2011), a well-regarded early work from director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, The Favourite). It’s about a business in which people are paid to impersonate a member of a family who has recently passed away, all so that the family can process their death. Those who have taken to the filmmaker’s work will likely find something to enjoy. The disc comes with a movie historian audio commentary. Dogtooth (2009) is an even earlier title from Lanthimos. In this picture, three teenagers are forced to live at the estate of their overprotective parents. They are given different meanings for words and told they can never leave until a specific tooth falls out. It’s all done to keep them at home, but

numerous complications soon arise. This release includes an audio commentary with the movie’s stars, an interview with Lanthimos, deleted scenes and a trailer. Perhaps the biggest highlight of the week might be two Blu-rays from Ealing Studios. The pictures star Alec Guinness. Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949) features the actor in several roles as members of a wealthy family who are slowly being murdered off by a commoner. He’s out for revenge after they refuse to acknowledge his mother as one of their heirs. It’s a very funny dark comedy and considered one of the best works from this studio. The Special Edition Blu-ray includes a film historian audio commentary, an introduction to the flick with director John Landis, featurettes and interviews with crew members on the cinematography and make-up effects. It also comes with an alternate American ending and trailer. The Lavender Hill Mob (1951) is another excellent comedy that earned Guinness an Academy Award nomination. He plays a meek bank clerk who plots with some pals to rob his vaults of all its gold. Viewers get to see if they manage to pull it off. This Special Edition Blu-ray arrives with a film historian audio commentary, an introduction from Martin Scorcese, an interview with the screenwriter and director and a trailer.

this is a great satire that pokes fun at the attempts of various social constructs to thwart his well-meaning efforts. The film earned a nomination for Best Screenplay at the Academy Awards.

Which Is It Bob?

If you still read the Independent, you will notice that Bob Zollinger, publisher of the Gallup Independent, has been leading a crusade against Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services’ CEO David Conejo. Even though real publishers opine on the newspaper’s editorial page, Zollinger’s attacks have been frequently waged on the front page of the newspaper’s weekend edition. It is ironic that in his numerous articles criticizing Conejo during the last several months, only two and a half years ago Bob found David Conejo’s management of RMCHCS to be impressive. Now Conejo is being criticized for the same issues he was previously praised for - so are you lying now or were you lying then? Here is what Zollinger wrote about RMCHCS on April 14, 2017 on the Editorial Page.

Turnaround at RMCHCS is impressive Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services is amid a pretty impressive growth spurt, and we think it only means good things for the community. Within the past year, RMCHCS has opened three new clinics: Red Rock Clinic, the East Campus Behavioral Health Clinic and the latest Urgent Care Clinic. The new clinic, located at 520 New Mexico Highway 564 in the old veterans clinic building, will have two providers and six clinical staff members in total, but will have one provider and three clinical staff working at any given time. The clinic can serve those with strains and sprains, coughs, colds, the flu, minor burns, skin rashes, open wounds in need of stitches, and sports physicals. The clinic can also take X-ray images as well as provide occupational medicine

services such as physicals and drug testing to both appointmentholders and walks-ins, a first in Gallup. This clinic is a great addition to local health care but is an important achievement for the hospital system.

the system has made an incredible turnaround, going from deep debt to actual profit, and from closing clinics to opening them up across the city, providing much needed medical services for Gallup and the surrounding area.

Just a few years ago, before the arrival of CEO David Conejo’s company, the hospital system was run by incompetent and unqualified managers who were hired by a board of directors who were more interested in status and holding ice cream socials than trying to efficiently run a rural hospital on which thousands depended for medical care. Because of the mismanagement by the board and the administrators they hired, the hospital was millions of dollars in debt and on the verge of closing.

There are a lot of things that can make a town more attractive to potential residents. Sure, fancy new lights downtown or a nice golf course might help, but nothing has the magnetic pull for new residents as a skilled, expansive hospital system. As RMCHCS continues to expand their campus and grow their services, Gallup will become more and more attractive to the residents we already have and to those maybe looking at moving to town; and that’s good for Gallup.

Since the return of Conejo, who ran the hospital a decade earlier,

In this space only does the opinion of the Gallup Independent Editorial Board appear.

Which is it Bob? You find the hospital was well managed then, under the same time period and CEO, but now it is not? The same issues you praised you now criticize. So, were you lying then or are you lying now? Perhaps it is time to stop writing confusing and contradicting articles and develop a newspaper managed by a publisher who can unite Gallup!

Fall Movie Preview COOL DOWN WITH THESE AUTUMN FLICKS

By Glenn Kay For the Sun

I

t looks as though Labor Day weekend is a little slim on new releases. The thriller Don’t Let Go is opening nationally, but it isn’t being screened for the press. That means it’s as good a time as any to look into the future and find out more about some of what’s arriving over the fall and holiday seasons. September begins with a major release in the form of It Chapter 2. This Stephen King adaptation about a group of childhood friends facing off against a supernatural clown will finish the story off for good and is likely to be a big box office success. The following week features T he Goldfinch with Nicole Kidman and Ansel Egort. It is a fictional tale involving a young man dealing with the death of his mother who passes away suddenly in a bombing. On a lighter note, Hustlers follows a group of exotic dancers who turn the tables on their Wall Street clients. Amazingly, the latter tale is actually based on a true story. Science-fiction enthusiasts will take an interest in the Brad Pitt flick Ad Astra, about an astronaut attempting to save the world by solving a mystery at the far end of the universe. Sylvester Stallone returns to one of his most iconic roles in Rambo: Last Blood, and BBC fans will be thrilled with Downton Abbey, a cinematic feature that continues the story of the Crawley family after the events of the TV finale. There’s also the indie comedy Brittany Runs a Marathon, which should be slowly opening around the country in September. And the month closes with Abominable, an animated flick for the family about a mythic creature coming out of the wilderness. October begins with a comic book adaptation in the form of Joker, a new take on the classic DC villain. Advance word on the picture has been positive, with a few pundits suggesting star Joaquin Phoenix could be an Oscar contender in the title role. Lucy in the Sky is another outer-space themed entry that COMMUNITY

‘Don’t Let Go,’ the movie not being screened for movie reviewers this week, stars David Oyelowo, Storm Reid, Byran Mann, Mykelti Williamson and Shinelle Azoroh. The film premiered under the title ‘Relive’ at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 27. In this shot, Detective Jack Radcliff (David Oyelowo) is protecting his niece Ashley Radcliff (Storm Reid), attempting to prevent her death before it happens. Photo Credit: Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions stars Natalie Portman as an astronaut who returns to Earth and soon begins to lose touch with reality. Director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Life of Pi) tries his hand at sci-fi/action with Gemini Man, which features a young and old Will Smith squaring off against each other. Jexi stars comedian Adam Devine as a man obsessed with his cell phone and those who enjoy The Addams Family will receive a new animated film for the whole family that is based on the famous characters. There’s also been a lot of buzz about JoJo Rabbit, the latest comedy from Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople). It’s a period piece set in WWII Germany about a young boy who is a part of the Hitler Youth. He imagines himself palling around with the country’s ruler until he discovers that his mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their home. Late October also sees the release of Zombieland: Double Tap which reunites all of the characters from the 2009 hit to face the undead once more. Disney fans will also see a familiar villain return to

the big screen in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, once again starring Angelina Jolie. Foreign-language film fans may be interested in Pain and Glory, a Spanish title from Oscar-winner Pedro Almodovar (Talk to Her, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown) that stars Antonio Banderas as a film director coming to terms with his past. The month wraps up with the Naomie Harris cop drama Black and Blue. The story follows a police rookie who accidentally captures a murder on her body cam that was committed by fellow officers. A s November a r r ive s, things get really busy, with blockbusters saddled alongside some award hopefuls. Pictures being released early in the month include the sequel, Ter minator: Dark Fate, featuring original stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton in supporting roles. There’s also the period crime piece Motherless Brooklyn with Robert DeNiro a nd Edwa rd Nor ton (who also directed the film) and the biographical drama, Harriet.

Other titles arriving include the WWII spectacle Midway and the biopic Ford v Ferrari with Christian Bale and Matt Damon as the famous car manufacturers. There’s also a Charlie’s Angels reboot, and the all-star, tongue-in-cheek murder/mystery Knives Out (the trailer looks quite entertaining). Those who remember T h e Shining will get Doctor Sleep, a sequel with Ewan McGregor as a grown-up Danny Torrance. Of course, families will no doubt be thrilled to see Disney deliver the long-awaited Frozen II to cinemas as the season gets chillier. There are many more films on the way and those mentioned above are only a selection of what to expect as the year progresses. They won’t all be perfect, but here’s hoping that some of these movies hit the mark and provide great entertainment and/or thought-provoking material for those venturing out to the cinema.

DVD/Blu-ray Roundup for August 30, 2019 By Glenn Kay For the Sun

L

ooks like it’s another busy edition with loads of Blu-ray and DVD releases hitting store shelves and rental outlets. There are some big summer epics coming your way, as well as noteworthy independent fare and a few documentaries. So, if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!

BIG NEW RELEASES! The Banana Splits Movie If you were a little kid in the ‘60s or ‘70s, you might remember va r ious live-action Sid & Marty Krofft children’s programs like H.R . Pufnstuf and Sigmund and the Sea Monsters. This direct-to-disc feature film re-imagining of the Banana Splits, turns one of their family-friendly shows into an R-rated horror flick. A young boy and his family decide to attend a taping of the program, only to see the strange creatures turn malevolent and attack the audience. There aren’t a lot of reviews available right now, but the ones that have appeared online are reasonably upbeat. They suggest that while the plot points are routine and the satire could have been sharper, the unusual take on the material does add a unique element to the proceedings. It features Dani Kind, Finlay WojtakHissong, Romeo Carere and Steve Lund. Big Top Evil - Speaking of turning nostalgic childhood memories into nightmare fuel, this small independent horror production involves a group of young travelers who stop in at a rundown roadside motel. They soon discover a dilapidated circus nearby and find themselves being hunted by a group of psychotic and savage cannibal clowns. Sounds like a fun weekend! Alas, this picture hasn’t played at any film festivals and is premiering on disc, so there are no write-ups that can attest to its quality. However, it doesn’t look to be anywhere in the same

league as the Banana Splits feature and may be exclusively for low-budget horror enthusiasts. The cast includes Bill Moseley (of Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 fame), J. LaRose and Jisaura Cardinale. Clarence Clemons: How Do I Think I Am? - Gifted musician Clarence Clemons (who might be most recognizable to readers for his work in Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band) is the subject of this documentary. After an expansive tour with the Boss came to an end in 2003, Clemons began thinking about his place in the world. In fact, he decided to travel to China with a film crew to make a little film about his experiences. Sadly, Clemons suffered a fatal stroke not long after. This picture chronicles his life and presents some intimate footage of the man along with interviews from those who knew him personally. This includes President Bill Clinton, Joe Walsh, as well as former bandmates and family members. There isn’t much word on this project yet, but it played at a few New York and New Jersey film festivals and may appeal to music fans. The Creatress - This small indie comedy/drama has seemingly come from out of nowhere to receive a release on disc. The plot involves a writer whose book becomes a big hit. She sells the rights away for a film adaptation and receives a huge advance for her next project, only to start experiencing backlash from the press and readers. This includes a false memoir about the scribe and some negative re-evaluations of her work. The protagonist strives to stay above it all and survive the onslaught, as well as come up with an idea for her next book. There is literally no information about this title other than it having a screening in France at the Nice film festival, so who knows how effective it is. Lindy Booth, Fran Drescher and Peter Bogdanovich headline the picture. Godzil l a: Kin g of th e Monsters - The giant green monster returns in this follow-up to the 2014 reboot. This time out, the cryptozoological agency known as Monarch finds its hands full after several monsters rise and attack in various countries across the

26 Friday September 6, 2019 • Gallup Sun

world. Once believing Godzilla to be its enemy, it soon realizes the creature may be its only hope of surviving this onslaught. This sequel didn’t receive as warm a welcome as the previous entry. While a group of critics did state that the monster fights were enjoyable enough to keep them watching, most complained that the film had difficulty shuffling several threads and finding a proper tone. They also noted that the characters both human and otherwise, weren’t as engaging as they could have been. The movie stars Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown and Bradley Whitford. Killers Anonymous - This independent action picture has an interesting premise... it follows a support group for assassins who get together and privately share their insecurities and concerns regarding their dangerous line of work. Tension mounts when one of them attempts a hit, leading authorities in the direction of the group in general. The killers must reconvene, determine who is responsible for the hit, and take action before they all get caught. The press hated this flick...right now, there isn’t a positive write-up to be found. All commented that the screenplay is poor, leaving its talented performers stranded, and becomes more of an endurance test than thriller. Ouch! The movie features Tommy Flanagan, Rhyon Nicole Brown, Jessica Alba and Gary Oldman. The Last Black Man in San Francisco - Set in a San Francisco not long into the future, this unusual arthouse effort follows a young man being pushed out of his old downtown neighborhood by gentrification. When the residents of the house he used to live in are forced to leave the property, he moves back in and attempts to reconnect with his family’s history. However, his actions end up causing unexpected complications. Notices were excellent for this unique picture. A small portion found the feature too ponderous and suggested that it was an obtuse and odd effort that was difficult to connect with. Still, the vast majority liked the cast, stated that the ideas were creatively presented, and took note of the engaging and impressive

photography and music. The cast includes Jimmy Fails, Jonathan Majors and Danny Glover. The Narcissists - Here’s another independent feature from New York that has been making the rounds on the festival circuit. This tale is about a filmmaker struggling in a creative funk and finding his relationship with his girlfriend at a crossroads. The couple decides to take a bit of time apart and spend a few days with friends, wandering through the metropolis and trying to figure out their next steps. Their discussions lead to several realizations about the future and their life together. The movie has been billed as a comedy/drama and is premiering on disc. However, there h a v e n’ t b e e n a ny rev iews posted online yet. Augie Duke a nd Jessica DiGiovanni play the main characters. Rocketman - As one might have guessed from the title, Elton John is the subject of this biopic. It details all of the remarkable ups and downs in his life and career, starting with his humble beginnings and the early days of his career as a songwriter and backup musicia n. The stor y then details his massive success, as well as a period of drugs and excess. All of it is backed to musical numbers based around some of his most famous tunes. Reaction towards the movie was extremely positive. A tiny segment did state that the events depicted were too downbeat and self-involved. Still, the consensus was that the picture had great numbers and ably dealt with all aspects of the musician’s life, helped tremendously by an exceptional lead performance. It stars Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard and Gemma Jones. The Secret Life of Pets 2 - This sequel to the 2016 animated hit continues to reveal secrets about what our animal friends do when we aren’t in their company. After his owners have a child, family dog Max must deal with new concerns and his role in the family as the clan heads out to a farm in the countryside. In the city, others pets deal with recovering an important toy and saving

an abused tiger from the circus. Critics were split on the end results, although more enjoyed the movie than disliked it. A contingent suggested that there wasn’t much that was memorable about the follow-up and found it to be a mediocre family film. Slightly more admitted the picture was no classic, but felt it made up for its deficiencies with impressive animation and humorous moments. The voice cast includes Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart, Harrison Ford, Tiffany Haddish and Jenny Slate.

BLASTS FROM THE PAST! It’s a busy edition for older titles as well. Shout! Factory is delivering another Hammer horror flick with Fear in the Night (1972). The story involves a young woman who marries a schoolteacher and moves to a small campus in the country. Once there, she must deal with a menacing stalker and eccentric characters. This Blu-ray includes the film in two aspect ratios, a film historian audio commentary, an inter view with the co-writer/producer/ director of the feature, as well as a second commentary track featuring the figure. You’ll also get a featurette on the production, a theatrical trailer and a still gallery. The same company is also releasing The Leech Woman (1960). It’s about a scientist and his wife doing research in Africa and attempting to discover the secret to eternal youth. When they find the answer and head back to the U.S. with the information, the scientist’s wife decides to take advantage of the discovery. Too bad the process requires a male sacrifice! A 35mm fine grain composite of the film has been given a 2K scan and the Blu-ray includes a film expert commentary as well as publicity materials. VCI Video is putting out a Blu-ray of The Vanishing Sh a dow (1934). This is a Universal Pictures serial that has never before been released and has been transferred in 2K from the original 35mm fine grain. The plot involves a young man who sets out to avenge the death of his father by using

NACE | FROM PAGE PB and Shiprock, in N.M. O ver t he pa st severa l weeks, customer accounts representative Kesha Anagal has been traveling to various tribal entities to provide information on the payroll program to employees and to recruit new customers. “I enjoy working with our entities, especially the opportunity to meet the individual employees who are our everyday customers,” she said. While retail costs are often a concern, Anagal said customers have commented that the payroll deduction program comes in handy in providing for family needs and unexpected occasions such as birthdays, ceremonies, graduations and the holiday season. Anagal has also been providing customer satisfaction surveys to receive feedback on how NACE can improve customer service or bolster new product offerings. “The face-toface interactions will benefit us and our customers. We’ll have firsthand input to help us grow and meet their needs,” she said. One customer, Nava jo Nation Gaming Enterprise, has been a great opportunity, she said, adding that the commensurate business relationship is entirely based on the work of Navajo artisans. Tribal entities and departments interested in getting an update on the payroll deduction program can contact Anagal to set up a time and date for an onsite visit.

footage of the 1982 Berlin riots, a featurette on the locations and publicity materials. They also have the cult flick, Hell Comes to Frogtown (1987). This is a post-apocalyptic action flick starring wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper as the last fertile man on the planet, who wanders the wastelands trying to survive the elements. This release marks the Blu-ray debut of the film in North America with a new 4K restoration. It also comes with a commentary featuring the director/cinematographer and the writer/producer, archived interviews with Piper as well as the make-up effects artist, an extended scene and the theatrical trailer. Anyone who’s a fan of Peter Jackson’s 1989 effort Meet the navajoartscrafts.com.

Feebles might take an interest in Vinegar Syndrome’s release of Let My Puppets Come (1976). This is an earlier adult-themed musical feature featuring an all-puppet cast set that is set in the world of adult films. Apparently, this bizarre comedy shocked audiences during its original run and then disappeared for decades. Now, the uncut original version has been given a 2K restoration and is being released on Blu-ray. It comes with a film historian commentary and a second track with a puppet designer, audio from the musical upon which the movie was based, an audio conversation with the director and a trailer. Criterion also has several new Blu-rays heading your way. The Flavor of Green Tea Over Rice (1952) is a well-regarded effort from Japan about a marriage quietly crumbling. The disc includes a new 4K restoration of the picture, a video essay on the title from a film scholar, a documentary on the screenwriter and a 1937 feature from the same director called What Did the Lady Forget?

The th r iller In so mni a (1997) is also hitting Blu-ray. This effort from Norway follows a cop investigating a murder in a village experiencing a 24-hour daylight cycle. If that synopsis sounds familiar, the movie was later remade in 2002 with Al Pacino. Besides a new 4K digital restoration of the movie itself, you’ll also get two short films from the director, a new conversation between the filmmaker and star Stellan Skarsgård and a trailer. They also have a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray set of T he Koker Trilogy. This release includes three Iranian films that are said to be a cross between fiction and documentary, detailing life in the title village and deftly mixing comedy and tragedy. The three specific movies included are Where is the Friend’s House? (1987), And Life Goes On (1992) and Through the Olive Trees (1994).
