Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts 

Oscar Nominated Animated Short Films 2014: Roundly Entertaining by ...Animated (82 min): The Oscar Nominated Short Films 2015: Animated program is chock a block with wonderful animated shorts. For once, every single nominated short is almost undeniably charming, if not outright wonderful. Audiences who live near theaters screening Oscar Nominated Short Films 2015 are in for a treat, but may come away from the theater with mixed impression thanks to a number of mostly unimpressive runners-up, which strive for greatness but fall short for a variety of obvious reasons, but trust us, the good most definitely outweighs the bad.

The shortest of this year’s Oscar-nominated animated shorts, “A Single Life,” offers a zippy, mordantly funny time-travel journey through a woman’s later years. In a similar sense, the other four entries in this solid, inspired roundup all address the unique challenges of life at a particular stage — dealing with the wants and insecurities of childhood in “Me and My Moulton” and “The Dam Keeper,” falling in love and starting a family in “Feast,” and caring for an elderly parent and coping with grief in “The Bigger Picture.” As always, the styles and techniques employed run the visual gamut, from traditional hand-drawn and computer-generated imagery to mixed-media stop-motion. 

Film1_OscarsLive_WEB_04.jpgLive Action (118 Min): The five Oscar-nominated films contending for this year’s best live-action short film remind us, like watching the films’ tidy narratives in succession, that even brief encounters with strangers can net unexpected points of view, connections and outcomes we never thought possible. Mostly international efforts featuring unknown actors from up-and-coming filmmakers in Switzerland, Ireland, France, China, Israel and Great Britain, the nominees include another star turn from Sally Hawkins, nominated last year for her performanc! e in Blue Jasmine and the leading voice of last year’s animated short nominee, Room on the Broom.

Compared to the epic all-American coming-of-age tale that is “Boyhood” — a feat 12 years in the making and three hours in the telling — Oscar’s live-action short film nominees have seldom seemed shorter or smaller, and yet, judged on their own terms, this year’s offerings demonstrate genuine understanding of the form’s potential. Where the best picture category offers its selection of ambitious tapestries, these mini-narratives, which range from 14 to 40 minutes, feel more like quilt squares, intricate in their own right, yet modest and far more self-contained — overall, a quality mix available for consummation on every size of screen imaginable.

Once again, the category represents Oscar’s least American batch of nominees to be found outside the foreign-language race, which further heightens the sense of discovery we get while sampling work from that hails from unknown helmers in countries less often represented at the multiplex.

CAPOERIA AGUA DE BEBER

Saturdays (11am & 12am)

8

Capoeira is an interactive game of martial arts and acrobatic dance accompanied by live music. Created four centuries ago by African slaves in the country of Brazil, it is believed that capoeira practitioners disguised this dynamic art form as dance and play in order to conceal it’s more lethal martial arts and self defense techniques. Students will learn attacks, escapes, acrobatics, strength and conditioning, music instruments, songs in Brazilian-Portuguese, history and self-confidence. Classes are geared for beginners and taught by Mario “Castanho” Hill, an 11-yr. practitioner of capoeira with United Capoeira Association.

Classes: Saturdays - Kids Capoeira (ages 7-12), 11am -12pm; Teen/Adult Capoeira, 12 -1:30pm.

Jupiter AscendingAction Adventure, Scifi, Fantasy.  2hr 5min . The Wachowski's (The Matrix) return with a new scifi space opera. From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, "Jupiter Ascending" tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people's houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along-her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

Saturday & Sunday March 14 & 15 (7:15pm)

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday March 17, 18 & 19 (5pm)

SelmaDrama, Biopic  2hr 7min . SELMA is the story of a movement. The film chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Director Ava DuVernays SELMA tells the real story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.

DuVernay's most remarkable accomplishment may be that with such passion-inspiring material, she has made such a measured, resolute and levelheaded film.

At its best, Ava DuVernay's biographical film honors Dr. King's legacy by dramatizing the racist brutality that spurred him and his colleagues to action.

Fifty Shades of GreyMystery, Suspense, Drama, Action.  1hr 54min . E.L. James' kinky best-seller gets the big screen treatment with this Universal Pictures/Focus Features co-production.

For a movie where people are naked for a large chunk of time and play at bondage and dominance (without ever really seeming all that committed to it), it sure is boring.
u Peter Travers

I'm shocked - shocked, do you hear me?!? - that the film version of E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey is such a dull, decorous affair, about as erotic as an ad for Pottery Barn. Strictly intended for gluttons for punishment-by boredom.

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday March 31, April 1 & 2  (5pm)

Kingsman: The Secret ServiceMystery, Suspense, Drama, Action.  2hr 8min . Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

 
w Peter Travers
Rolling Stone
Top Critic
 
Caught between straight-up James Bond and the Austin Powers parody version, Kingsman is a high-octane combo of action and comedy that breathes surreal new life into the big-screen spy game where Bond meets Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer.

If you can forgive the failings for at least some of the two-plus-hour running time, "Kingsman" serves up its share of entertaining froth.

This absurdist mashup of spy-movie genres-especially those with gentleman spies-points up the frenzied pace of change with a frenzy of its own, then runs low on comic resources in the process.

 

WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS (R)

Friday & Sunday March. 27 & 29 (5pm)

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday March 31, April 1 & 2  (7pm)

What We Do In The ShadowsComedy, Dark Humor, Horror 1hr 24min . WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS chronicles the adventures of four vampire roommates trying to get by in a modern world that's not always hospitable to the undead. Clement and Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series "Flight of the Conchords," co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in this hilarious send-up in which an endearingly unhip quartet of friends reveal to us or, rather, to the documentary crew that's filming them, the details of their daily-make that nightly-routine. Ranging in age from 183 to 8,000, and in appearance from adorably youthful to Nosferatu-crusty, they squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up with the latest trends in technology and fashion, antagonize the local werewolves, cruise clubs for lovely ladies, and deal with the rigors of living on a very, very strict diet. The film also stars Rhys Darby, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stu Rutherford, and Jackie Van Beek, and was produced by Waititi, Chelsea Winstanley and Emanuel Michael.

DALAI LAMA AWAKENING - Special Screening with Director Q & A

Tuesday  March 31  (7pm)

 http://wakan.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Poster-Dalai-Lama-Awakening-24x36-v4.1-803x1200.jpgNarrated by Harrison Ford, DALAI LAMA AWAKENING presents the profound and life-changing journey of innovative Western thinkers who travel to India to meet with the Dalai Lama. Born from over 500 hours of video shot over a 15 year period, the film is a Director's Cut of Khashyar Darvich's award-winning DALAI LAMA RENNAISANCE.

Can a film inspire an “awakening” within its filmmaker, as well as with audiences around the world?

Dalai Lama Awakening, which features the Dalai Lama and is narrated by actor Harrison Ford, is Director Khashyar Darvich’s newest documentary film– a new “Poetic ReVision” of his award-winning Dalai Lama Renaissance which won 12 awards and screened over 1,000 times around the world.

Dalai Lama Awakening presents the profound and life-changing journey of innovative Western thinkers who travel to India to meet with the Dalai Lama to solve many of the world’s problems. The result was an inner transformation of the participants, as well as what audiences report is a personal transformational experience for those who watch the film.

“When I was making Dalai Lama Renaissance,” says Director Khashyar Darvich, “Dalai Lama Awakening is the film that my heart and soul wanted to make. I was happy with the international success and impact of Dalai Lama Renaissance, but we had to make some compromises in editing the film in order to meet the requirements of distributers. But at the time, I felt like my cinematic child received invasive surgery and lost some of its true authentic beauty of what it was meant to be. While Dalai Lama Renaissance is like the screenplay of a novel, Dalai Lama Awakening is the novel itself.”

“Dalai Lama Awakening is a film without compromise,” says Darvich. “It is something pure, fulfilling and complete– a heart-felt expression from the filmmaker’s poetic soul. This is the film that inspired me and moved me at the most profound level, so I know that it will deeply impact audiences as well.”
