Coasting : Issue 12 June 2010
11 www.coastingtoday.com.au COASTING ENTERTAINMENT Q: If you were stuck on a desert island (with a perfectly functioning cinema, of course) and had only one movie musical to watch for the rest of your life, what movie would you choose, and why? A: That's easy: Dreamgirls. That soul music is timeless. And I'd never tire of the emotion and voice of Jennifer Hudson. My choice may change, though, once Wicked is released in 2011. Q: What movie could you not watch again? A: Any of the Saw movies. They seem filled with pointless gore, swearing and torture. Q: What has been your biggest night at Cinema Paradiso? A: We held a special premiere screening of Sex and the City which sold out in hours. We held fashion parades, games, daiquiri drinks, and crazy competitions. It was like the movie empowered all these females to let their hair down and go wild... and some certainly did go wild. I've never seen anything like it. The opening nights for Twilight and the latest Batman movie (The Dark Knight) were also pretty big. Q: What has been the most memorable reaction that you've seen a moviegoer have to a movie? A: Mamma Mia had the audience up and dancing all around the theatre, and BIG NIGHT: The girls from Sex and the City (2008). standing up applauding so loudly at the end that it nearly raised the roof. And this would happen every session. Slum Dog Millionaire had people sitting outside the door and crying because they couldn't bear to watch the harsh realities of how some Indian children get mistreated. Q: What three movies would be in your perfect Halloween movie marathon? A: Orphan, Paranormal Activity, and The Skeleton Key. Q: What is your favourite line of dialogue from a movie, and why? A: "I guess we're not in Kansas anymore, Toto." From The Wizard of Oz. I love the way it reflects being out of your depth and having to accept change. Q: If you could change the ending of a movie, what movie would it be, and what change would you make? A: This is a difficult question, because I don't want to give away the ending to people who haven't seen The Lovely Bones... But I so wanted the body to be found, and I wanted Mr Harvey caught and made to pay for his crime. The movie pulls you in and has you concentrating so hard all the way through. But the ending gave you no closure, so you walked out of the cinema angry and feeling like you were still on a train waiting to arrive at your destination. Q: Finally, what upcoming films are you most looking forward to seeing? A: This year and 2011 seems to have a lot of sequels and remakes of old favourites, so there are lots to look forward to. I'm looking forward to Wicked coming to the big screen in 2011 (I've seen the stage show four times). And this year I'm looking forward to Karate Kid, Season of the Witch and The Prisoners. Among the sequels are Paranormal Activity 2, Happy Feet 2 (2011) and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011). UPLIFTING: Jessica Mauboy in Bran Nue Dae (2009). FAVOURITE: A scene from The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (2008). Picture by Lukacs David.
