So the summer is a time for sequels and we’re going to talk about two of them, the first very successful and the second embarrassing.  STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS is a strong addition to the long series of Star Trek movies.  This one is the very entertaining follow-up to J.J. Abrams’ very savvy rebooting of the series.  I had heard that this was basically a remake of Wrath of Khan but it isn’t.  Abrams takes that iconic character and drops him into the paths of Kirk and Spock.  His smartest  choice here is casting Benedict Cumberbatch, one of England’s best new acting sensations, as the supervillain.  In this installment, Kirk gets to grow up a little, Spock explores his human side, and we all have a good time- a definite SHOULD SEE.

Not so with HANGOVER III.  They apparently realized that after remaking  THE HANGOVER in the second film with a relocation in Bangkok, the same jokes won’t work repeating them again so they don’t even try to be funny.  Zach Galifanikis’ character has been turned from sweet to mean as if that’s a good idea and Ken Jeong’s Mr. Chow becomes the central character of the movie leaving Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper to suffer through just doing reaction shots.  The whole thing is just a coked up crime chase scene that runs way too long in circles.  Please DON’T SEE it or they’ll make a fourth one.

I guess I need to check out FAST & FURIOUS 6 after all.  It’s rated fresh on and it opened bigger than STAR TREK this weekend.

First a couple of questions: have you read THE GREAT GATSBY? It Is a classic America novel frequently assigned in high school and college and it was Wichita’s Big Read last fall.  More importantly, if you’ve read it, did you like it? Finally, if you answered yes, do you realize that a novel and a film are very different works of entertainment?

All that to preface:  I love the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel as a piece of literature and I liked the new Baz Luhrmann movie as a piece of cinema very much.  Luhrmann of MOULIN ROUGE and ROMEO + JULIET visually over the top fame has taken the 1925 story of Jazz Age lost love and disillusionment and turned it into a truly gorgeous movie very much in the style of movies that were made by the great film directors of the 1920s such as Fritz Lang, Josef von Sternberg, or F.W. Murnau if they had had 3D and CGI at their disposal.  Just like the novel, the whole story of millionaire mystery Jay Gatsby and his fickle lady love Daisy Buchanan is told by Gatsby’s only true friend, Nick Carraway, as a mournful memoir.  Because Nick is trying to work through his demons, the story and therefore the film is by no means straightforward reality.  It is the dazzled and confused memories of a young nobody who fell in with a ridiculously wealthy and careless crowd and (surely this is not a spoiler) no one’s story ends happily. 


Tobey McGuire ably plays the naïve vulnerable Nick with Leonardo diCaprio enigmatic as his memory of his fallen hero and Carey Mulligan equally enigmatic as the woman Gatsby loves.  It isn’t a happy tale and it invites you to reflect on what happened right along with Nick.  This feast for the eyes is also the best, most sumptuous use of 3D to tell a story since Scorsese’s HUGO.  GATSBY is visually a stunner.  Opening this in May, Warner Bros. has given audiences the ultimate alternative to superhero blockbusters.  Judging from its $50+ million opening weekend, their risk paid off.  If you want to see a truly cinematic movie  based on a great literary source, you SHOULD SEE IT.

Movie Review by Phil Speary

Oz: the pretty good and not so powerful -

 I love the classic 1939 THE WIZARD OF OZ as much as any Kansan film fan so the experience of the new super deluxe prequel OZ: THE GREAT & POWERFUL in 3D IMAX prompted a very mixed response because of very high expectations.  Coming from the same producers as the delirious and entertaining ALICE IN WONDERLAND with Johnny Depp and director Sam Raimi of SPIDERMAN and EVIL DEAD fame, I expected an eye-popping wildly creative adventure with a wicked sense of humor.  Eye-popping this world of Oz is but not so wildly creative, adventurous or all that much fun. 

 Actually the best part of the movie is while we’re still in black & white Kansas where all the trouble for “Oz” Diggs, the run-of-the mill sideshow magician (charmingly played by James Franco) begins. Once he is literally dropped into the color soaked magicial land by a spectacular CGI tornado, his story unfolds in fits and starts which sometimes wow us but too often make us wish the story would go ahead and get on to its obvious conclusion.  The three talented screen beauties Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams play the sister witches who are made to argue their way through much more complex psychological struggles than the story needs.  The only surprising highlight of the film is a genuinely funny flying monkey sidekick voiced by Zach Braff. 

 If you love Oz stories and want to see the many clever clues that set up the characters and plot points we all know, this film has much to offer.  Certainly if you love gorgeous fantasy worlds in 3D you will have plenty to enjoy.  If, however, you want a fresh and thoroughly entertaining new take on this beloved timeworn tale, then this version is only a COULD SEE.
