Re: “Love never dies, but many terrible musicals have: Sitting through Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom sequel.

Having seen n been bored in the Original London version of Love Never Dies i had grave doubts about the Australian Production apart from the fact the Cast n Creative Team were top notch!
I decided against seeing it in Melbourne n waited for the show to transfer to Sydney's glorious Capitol Theatre.
I bought the cheapest ticket in the house along with family n friends who i strongly advised NOT to end of Act 1 my group of attendees turned on me and proclaimed the show was EXCELLENT.
I was knocked off my seat also by this transformation of a "dog" of a show to something visually n aurally awesome!
It was truly a different show! True, the premise for a sequel and of course the storyline still are very weak. BUT!!! the actual show as a whole was beautiful and i saw it two more time in Sydney!
My surmise is that this Show should have really been NOT about Phantom n Christine but could have been a brand new show, concept, story, etc, and stood on its own feet easily!

Re: “Movie review: Kingsman: The Secret Service is a witty, rollicking pastiche of spy-movie tropes

Well Steve, as always, your mileage will vary, but FWIW, I saw it in a theater full of delighted adults who clearly did not feel they were wasting their time.

Re: “Movie review: Light bondage aside, Fifty Shades of Grey's real lust is for corporate power

Books and movies like this reinforce the notion that a man only has value to a woman, and is only attractive to a woman, and can only be desired by a woman if he is in a position of authority and great wealth with a career that makes him status-symbol for the middle class due to his wealth and affluence. It also reinforces the notion that the man's primary place in a woman's life is that of authority figure rather than companion and partner and that, given the choice of a helicopter ride and bondage sex over intelligence, personality, and a simple roll-in-the-hay with a lover for pleasure and not pain, the woman would choose the former because, well, America values money and status above all else. I guess we can't imagine this bondage scenario unless it is dangled to the woman behind a big pile of money and power?

Re: “Movie review: Kingsman: The Secret Service is a witty, rollicking pastiche of spy-movie tropes

"Too winningly knowing and witty?"

Campy yes, but witty? The actors are entertaining and the action is spirited, but the movie is likely a waste of time for anyone over 16.

Re: “New folk art museum working to come to Pittsboro

Great to hear about this new folk and outsider art venue in the works! As members of the NC Folk Art Society, we have donated to the building campaign and plan to spread the word among other folk art enthusiasts. Pittsboro is already on the map with Mark Hewitt's great pottery in the area and the Fearrington Folk Fest. This will be one more great reason to visit the area.

Re: “Movie review: Birdman soars despite some turbulence

I can never understand for the life of me why movie reviewers are attacked personally for their reviews. Really, he's considered a "troll" for pointing out flaws he found with the film, that are clearly in his opinion? Sheesh, get a grip. I am a big fan of this director and found some of his previous films - Babel, 21 grams - compelling and moving. Having said that, I agree with much of this review. Birdman is an inventive wild ride, with some wonderful moments. But it the end, it felt disappointingly unsatisfying.

Re: “Movie review: Patriot or traitor, Edward Snowden is human in Citizenfour

This is a marvelous review of the movie, "Citizenfour" -- spot on in every respect. It is about Snowden but the issues, which are some of the biggest we have ever faced in our nation's history, are displayed full force.

Could not agree more-- this movie is MUST see. Period. Don't wait, see it now.

And for those who still love all things Obama, you will have to see that his inaction dealing with this building disaster was the main motivation for Snowden coming forward. Obama and Bush have about the same respect for our privacy rights (zero), as shocking as this may seem to some who read IndyWeek.

Re: “Bonus Materials: David Lynch, nightmare membranes and Eraserhead

I recently returned to world of Eraserhead, determined to make my peace with it. I ended up reverse engineering a script in an attempt to make sense of it. In the process I found incredible things that I haven't seen described anywhere else. It has completely changed my view of the film. You can read my take on Eraserhead here:

Re: “Movie review: Birdman soars despite some turbulence

i live in LA....i have seen films since the 60's with a very critical eye. the review here is purely just one disgruntled opinion. actually these kind of trolls are dealt with in the film, and it must have stuck a nerve, so they had to dismiss the real genius of this film. trust me....any person who really knows the difference between,,,, amazingly creative and funny as hell, versus intelligently boring --will come out of this film thinking one thing. i have never seen anything like this before, and it was as entertaining as anything i have ever seen. i kept thinking the whole time watching it...who the hell wrote this..and wheni learned it was a foreigner.....i thought.....well, no one here in LA could have seen this subject, with such a fresh point of view...cause everyone is so....jaded. i have never considered Keaton a actor i would spend two cents on to go see,,,(beetlejuice was it,,,period).....but after seeing him perform in this fantastic twisted surreal romp,,,he WILL win the best actor Oscar. the film also..will win...BEST FILM. mark my words...and go see this... not just great...but ...incredibly brilliant film...right now.
