“That’s not fair!”

“Fifteen-year-old Sarah resents her baby brother Toby and secretly wishes that he will just disappear. Her wish comes true when goblins kidnap the boy. Feeling responsible and guilty about his abduction, she sets forth to retrieve him, and finds herself on the adventure of a lifetime. To rescue her brother, she must sneak into the castle of the Goblin King, which is in the center of a fantastical labyrinth. But, the task is easier said than done, for the maze is filled with strange creatures and mind-bending puzzles, and nothing is really as it seems.” – Rottentomatoes

The Dark Stranger is coming…

A small California village is attacked by zombies in this 1974 thriller. This film is a mix of the works of H.P. Lovecraft, Carnival of Souls (1962), and Night of the Living Dead (1968), topped off with a nod from the psychedelic early seventies. Almost nothing in the entire plot is ever explained, but rather left to the viewer’s interpretation. The movie’s dream-like structure leads the viewer to question what is going on, and with each successive scene, the mystery becomes more obscure. It is interesting to note an urban legend regarding the film exists that a key subplot regarding the true nature of Michael Greer’s character “Thom” and his connection to the “Messiah of Evil”, aka the “dark stranger” was cut from the final edit of the film. Greer plays the “dark stranger” in the flashback sequence and at the end of the film, Thom tells Arletty of a dream he had, placing him in a situation similar to the “Donner Party”, that the “dark stranger” was present at. This leaves the question of whether or not Thom was the reincarnation of the “dark stranger” or the actual “dark stranger”.

Finish Ticket

Finish Ticketresize

Bay Area alternative rock band Finish Ticket will return to Humboldt still in celebration of the Atlantic Records re-release of their latest full-length album “Tears You Apart.” Over the summer they toured the nation with The Mowgli’s, played the big stage at the BFD in Mountain View and enjoyed a slot at the sold out Outside Lands festival in August. Their clear appeal to fans of The Killers, Young the Giant and Phoenix earned them rotation on KSLG and the band found out they were on-air in Humboldt from guitarist Alex DiDonato’s sister, who attends HSU. Finish Ticket consists of vocalist Brendan Hoye (a “Lord of the Rings” action-figure collector), his brother Michael Hoye on bass (he was voted most likely to be president in high school), DiDonato (who loves playing Magic cards), drummer Gabe Stein (who is missing half a thumb) and finally his brother Nick Stein on keyboards (he had webbed toes).

Picture Atlantic are poised to win people over just like they won over one of the most popular bands in the world. “If (Coldplay) had really become jaded jerks due to their fame and time in the industry, I don’t think they would have been able to muster the kindness and down to earth attitude they had with us,” said Nik Bartunek, Picture Atlantic’s frontman. The 2006-formed trio’s opportunity to support Chris Martin’s band in San Jose came about after a radio station in the area collected votes for a contest. Coldplay picked them from the top three bands with the most listener votes. Made up of three fellas who initially met in middle school, Bartunek, Blair and drummer Daniel Martinez (who Bartunek says is actually probably a better guitarist that him) make up a band that first got together to fill a void in the Bay Area of melodic bands that don’t scream their vocals. Their new single “Convenient Lovers” is said to be a great indicator of the direction they’re headed sonically on their next album. With dark guitar riffs reminiscent of early Arctic Monkeys material the song has a bit of post-punk angst aimed at participants too disinterested to stay true to their convictions who will quickly “start again choose another.”

Two Fresh

Two Fresh has travelled a long way with their sound in a short time. Originally from Nashville, TN, and now residing in Denver CO, twin brothers Sherwyn & Kendrick Nicholls have developed into a unique electronic production team.

The twins early work, “The Baker’s Dozen,” was nostalgic of early 90′s hip-hop, using soulful and lo-fi samples, intertwined with classic drum stylings. With their first full length album, “Airmail”, Two Fresh took the sound in a spacey, yet grounded direction that has set the foundation for their more recent works. Having released “Watch This!” in early 2013, the twins’ latest EP showcases the more upbeat side of their musical spectrum.

Sherwyn and Kendrick developed a broad fan base, spanning all across North America, through extensive touring with artists such as Skrillex, Bassnectar,12th Planet, and Daedelus as well as performing at a slew of music festivals including Electric Daisy Carnival, SXSW and Detroit Electronic Music Festival.

Now in their fifth year as a group, be sure to catch Two Fresh out this summer performing new material from their forthcoming full-length release due this fall!

Rated G

Two tiny heroes, one big adventure!

Two fantasy novels by Margery Sharp were combined for in the Disney animated feature The Rescuers. The title characters are a pair of mice, Bernard and Miss Bianca. A little girl named Penny has been kidnapped by Miss Medusa. When the human law enforcement officials fail to locate the child, Bernard and Miss Bianca take over with the help of several colorful animal companions. In classic Disney tradition, the comedy element is offset by moments of genuine terror. Voices are provided by Bob Newhart (Bernard), Eva Gabor (Miss Bianca), Geraldine Page (Madame Medusa), Jim “Fibber McGee” Jordan, John McIntire, George “Goober” Lindsay, Joe Flynn (who died in 1974, not long into the four-year production), and a host of others. It scored at the box office, more than compensating for the $8 million investment and the half-decade of work it took to complete the film. In fact, The Rescuers remains one of the most popular of the Disney cartoon films produced after the death of Uncle Walt. A heavily-computerized sequel, The Rescuers Down Under, appeared in 1990. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Science has fused man and wolf!

The British-born character actor George Zucco plays Dr. Lorenzo Cameron, a discredited — and quite mad — medico who has discovered a way to turn his helper, Pietro (Glenn Strange), into a wolf man. The lycanthropic experiments succeed only too well and although Dr. Cameron spouts plans of turning his discovery into a weapon in defense of the civilized world (“men who are governed by one collective thought, the animal lust to kill without regard for personal safety! Such an army will sweep everything before it,” Dr. Cameron promises), he instead unleashes his creation on those fellow scientists who had engineered his ouster from academia in the first place. Before long, however, the good doctor is unable to control the wolf man, who threatens to kill everything in his past, and only newspaper reporter Tom Gregory (Johnny Downs) and Lenora (Anne Nagel), Cameron’s innocent daughter, may be able to stop the monster. A perennial cult favorite, The Mad Monster was released on the heels of The Wolf Man (1941), but cost a fraction of Universal’s elaborate lycanthropic exercise. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

BoomBox, the electronic duo compromised of versatile producers, DJs, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalists Russ Randolph and Zion Rock Godchaux, recently released their first new studio album in 4 years, Filling In The Color, following 2010’s downriverelectric and 2006’s debut record Visions of Backbeat. Godchaux calls the new record “further evolved” from the bands’ signature sound, an electronic blend of soulful Rock and Blues based dance music incorporating Backbeat, Psychedelia and Funky House sounds.

BoomBox Press Photo Feb 2014

The band created a majority of the album on the road over the past two years. “It was written mainly in transit –backstage, hotel rooms, and places like the interstate in different vehicles,” says Godchaux. A handful of tracks on the new album, including “Waiting Around” and “Dream“, incorporate live guitar riffs that were pulled from soundboard multi-tracks as the band experimented with the new tracks on the road. “There’s a live energy mixed in with that. A lot of the new tracks were developed in the live setting,” Randolph says. “And you’re recording that part with an audience in front of you, so it’s a totally different vibe than if it were just the two of us in the studio or hanging out at my house.”

The band returned to their hometown of Muscle Shoals, AL to complete the tracks at Randolph’s home studio. “90% of it was cut in the Shoals,” says Randolph. There was an added historical significance to recording in Muscle Shoals given it’s rich recording history, where legendary soul artists such as Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding once laid down records. “The history obviously has some bearing on the emotional tone of the creative process,” Randolph said.

While Filling In The Color draws from many influences in Randolph and Godchaux’s lives’, the record ultimately comes from an honest, personal place. “It comes down to a search for a certain sound,” says Godchaux, “a certain feel. It’s something we hear in our heads all the time. Forces from within are the driving, motivating factor in pointing this sound out to people.”

“We want the listener to be able to play the record front to back, not just a few tracks,” Godchaux said. “To enjoy the album as a whole. Day or night, happy or sad, from the speaker on their phone to the thumping sound system. We are song makers. That’s what we do. And this record should be confirmation that we are doing what we are supposed to be doing with our lives.”

Filling In the Color is currently available in all digital stores. CD + Vinyl packages are currently available for pre-order and will feature a coloring book of conceptualized artwork for each song, allowing fans to “Fill in the Color” as they see fit.

A mixture of real actors, computer animation, and live puppeteering, Where the Wild Things Are follows the adventures of a young boy named Max (Max Records) as he enters the world of the Wild Things, a race of strange and enormous creatures who gradually turn the young boy into their king. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Which man will seduce her?

This weak sci-fi, post-disaster drama is about three people left alive after everyone else has been killed on earth. The trio is comprised of Harold (Antony Carbone), Martin (Edward Wain), and Evelyn (Betsy Jones-Moreland) who were underwater scuba diving when a mysterious glitch in the atmosphere depleted all available oxygen for a short period of time — enough to kill off earth’s population. The ambiance is at first eerie and increasingly ominous as the divers surface and slowly discover that no one is alive out there. Then the interaction of the two men with each other and with Evelyn (Eve?), takes over and the story veers into an odd romance drama as the two machos each try to seduce the last woman left on earth. The story was a first effort by scripter Robert Towne, whose muse was dozing at the moment, but was definitely back in form on later efforts (Chinatown, The Last Detail). Towne also co-starred here as Martin, using the pseudonym of Edward Wain. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Phutureprimitive

Phutureprimitive is the moniker of Bay Area producer and songwriter Rain. Early childhood photos reveal Rain sitting at the piano plinking keys, grinning from ear to ear… a true sign of things to come. Continuing his early fascination, Rain was later drawn to electronic music, inspired by its ability to combine the best of organically played instruments and the synthetic pleasures of sounds more exotic to the human ear. After beginning a DJ career in the 90s, Rain began incorporating the music he was making in his home studio into his DJ sets. That was all it took to trigger a full blown love affair with electronic music and the process of its creation… and Phutureprimitive was born.”

“Phutureprimitive’s music is best described as dripping wet love drops of nasty mind melting sonic bliss. Lush melodies drift across intricate rhythms, groove heavy beats and warm, fuzzy bass lines. Often exploring a dark and dense palette, there is also a profound sense of tranquility and beauty, engaging the listener into hypnotic movement and often escalating into a full-on kinetic experience. Shimmering with cinematic qualities, his music ultimately speaks to the body, mind and soul.”

“Despite electronic music’s tendency to suffer a short shelf life, Phutureprimitive has already demonstrated a timeless quality with his debut album “Sub Conscious” on Waveform Records, which remains the top seller on the label since its release in 2004, obtaining a cult status among fans and collectors. With a string of singles released in the interim on various labels, the birth of Native Harmonix (Rain’s own Record Label) brought us the “Luminous” EP in 2010; delving into a lyrical based production, supported by undulating synth work and a palpable haunting texture throughout. His second full-length release “Kinetik” forged new territories of emotional electronic dance music, exploring a heavier, bass-centric sound that adds raw energy to intricately detailed tracks. “Kinetik” remains on the iTunes Top 100 Electronic Music Chart, 3 years after its release.

With a new collection of songs released in 2 parts titled “Searching for Beauty in the Darkest Places,” he takes ideas from his previous releases and supercharges them with hard-hitting dancefloor appeal, while maintaining the depth and prowess this trusted producer is so well known for. His first national headlining tour in Fall 2013 debuted his collaboration with ritual dancer Caeli La. The tour launched with the release of their first official music video, “Lucid Dream,” a collaboration with multi-media production team Vinton Depiction & Michael Miller, the animation/visual effects creator behind NBC’s “Grimm.” The Dance Out Your Demons Tour featured an interactive game, in which the audience members write down a “demon,” fear, or something they are letting go of on a piece of duct tape, stick it to the bottom of their shoe, and then “dance out their demons.” Due to the success of DOYD, Phutureprimitive announced that they will continue to incorporate the game on future tours. – From the official website

When the game is over, a new world comes to life.

Ralph (John C. Reilly) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer), the “good guy” star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he’s tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero. On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late? — (C) Disney

The story of one murderous hand!

The hand of an exploded astronaut takes on a life of its own in this unintentionally funny horror film that begins when the hand is discovered near the crash site by a naive young med student who takes it home as a grisly souvenir. He has no idea that the hand has been possessed by a strange, murderous alien who gradually begins to take over the hapless med student. Suddenly people all around town are found mysteriously strangled to death and now only a very hungry cat can save the rest of them. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

“I can’t fly. I can’t read your mind. I can’t be invisible. I can’t see through walls. But I can kick your ass.”

Adapted from Mark Millar’s hyper-violent comic book of the same name, director Matthew Vaughn’s (Layer Cake) vigilante superhero film tells the tale of an average New York teenager who decides to don a costume and fight crime. Comic book geek Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) may not have good coordination or special powers, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a fully capable crime fighter. After purchasing a flashy wet suit on the Internet, Dave starts busting up baddies with nothing but brute force. He calls himself Kick-Ass, and he can take a beating as good as he can dish one out. Before long, Kick-Ass has become a local sensation, and others are following his lead. Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) are a father-daughter crime-fighting duo who have set their sights on local mob heavy Frank D’Amico (Mark Strong). They’re doing a decent job of dismantling Frank’s sizable underworld empire when Kick-Ass gets drawn into the fray. But Frank’s men play rough, and his son, Chris (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), is about to become Kick-Ass’ very first arch nemesis. When Chris assumes the persona of Red Mist, the stage is set for a superhero showdown that could spell the end of Kick-Ass once and for all. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
