Review

I was lucky to get to see the film at the opening day of Cinema German in Jakarta. But, I might say that I’m a bit dissapointed about the movie plot. Eh?

Well, okay the film was unpredictable, but what then? Nothing specific to win my attention at all. The conflict and the solution were so lame as the opening film. I was guessing that Blue Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) was inspired by this film/novel due to the plot which is forward and backward like it’s trying to twist us, but I am totally wrong since there’s no socialite lifestyle in it. It’s drama about what will you do if you have the second chance to get things right? Give up on fate or doing something different.

All my attention went to the nature and how nice the camera took it all. Beside the supporting role acting (Fritzi) which was better than the main role (Nina) -Sorry, But I should be honest. Fritzi was attract me with her superb acting. She deserves to win any award for her role in this film.

Let’s say, the interesting part of the film was when Juliane handles the situations which will lead you to the climax of the film (which was not fresh in my opinion).

Review

The film portrays two persons aggrieved with the happenings in their life coming together incidentally and search for freedom and peace in their own way.

The depiction of the slow change in the feelings between the main character (Veera and Mahabir) is smooth and realistic enough for their rather diverse backgrounds.

Actually, I don’t really like the girl performance in few scenes. But, she paid it at the climax scene, where it is crucial.

Good use of the plot to show scenic beauties of the high north. It should also be appreciated for highlighting one of the serious societal problems India is facing for a long time, now.

Miley Cyrus – Bangerz

Actually, I seldom to pay attention to American singer, yeah… I like some of them but now I think I should open my eyes wider. Seriously, I think I like Miley Cyrus with this Bangerz album. She looks like the real Miley. You won’t find the old Miley as people used to know, Hannah Montana. You might never think that she’s the Hannah Montana.

Stepping into the spotlight as a boldly stylized megastar, Miley Cyrus has become one of the year’s incendiary forces in pop music, rising to the top of the charts the party anthem single “We Can’t Stop” and the huge follow-up, “Wrecking Ball”. The singer goes big on her fourth album, using a clutch of top producers (including Pharrell Williams, Mike Will Made It and Dr. Luke), and guest appearances from Britney Spears, Big Sean and Ludacris.

This 2013 album from the former teen sensation turned controversial Pop diva. Cyrus is a world renowned entertainer with record breaking success in film, television and music. She is a multiplatinum recording artist and has sold over 12 million albums and 20 million tracks in the US alone. Bangerz features production by Mike WiLL Made It, Pharrell Williams, and will.i.am among others, with features from Britney Spears, Big Sean, Future, Nelly, Ludacris, and French Montana.

Birdy 1ST Single of the 2ND Album : Wings

 

Thought, I’m a huge fan of this British girl. Birdy which has an original name Jasmine van den Bogaerde is an English musician who had won the Open Mic UK in 2008, at the age of 12. Well, I actually didn’t know her since that time. I knew her from her 1st single “Skinny Love” and also from her 1st album which called “Birdy”. I’m in love since the first time I heard she sang. It was 2 years ago by the way.

Now, Birdy’s back with her 1st single “Wings” and it will be on her 2nd album “Fire Within” which will be released on September 2013. Surely, it will be great! And I think it’s beautiful and, yet still radio friendly.

Emma Robinson, Si Pemilik Suara Auto Tune.

 

Yahoo mengantarkanku menemukan gadis berusia 16 tahun asal Florida, Amerika Serikat itu. Namanya Emma Robinson, parasnya cantik dan bakatnya pun unik. Emma memiliki suara yang terdengar seperti Auto-Tune, dimana cara dia menyanyi pun tidak buruk. Ah, bahkan sangat bagus.

Sebelum berlanjut, mungkin banyak kita bertanya termasuk aku sendiri pada awalnya. Auto-tune itu jenis suara apa dan siapa saja yang memiliki suara sejenis itu? Lucunya, Auto-tune sebenarnya bukanlah suara natural manusia, tapi komputer (robot) berperan di sana. Menurut Yahoo, Penyanyi seperti T-Pain dan Kanye West adalah beberapa diantara penyanyi yang sering menggunakan bantuan komputer untuk menciptakan efek Auto-tune. Tapi, hal tersebut tidak berlaku bagi Emma Robinson, dia natural.

Emma mengaku pada Yahoo bahwa suaranya memang sudah seperti itu, dia sangat bersyukur atas karunia Tuhan tersebut dan tentu atas bantuan kekasihnya yang telah mem-publish dan meyakinkan dunia bahwa bakat Emma memang benar adanya.

Awalnya aku skeptis atas kemampuan suara Emma. Terlebih lagi “katanya”, terdengar seperti efek Auto-tune. Aku tidak begitu suka dengan penyanyi yang mengandalkan teknologi dalam bernyanyi.  Ku coba ikuti tautan link yang diarahkan Yahoo. Menuju Youtube dan Play salah satu lagu favorit ku, Stay dari Rihanna. Lord, she’s freakin’ awesome!

Aku suka cara Emma bernyanyi, efek Auto-tune dan segala kemampuan vokal yang dia miliki.

Pertanyaannya, apakah kelak Emma akan bisa mandiri menyanyikan lagunya sendiri? Ya, maksudku… Apakah ia mampu bersaing menjual karya-karyanya kelak sebagai seorang Penyanyi profesional. Semoga!

Payung Teduh: Resah

Aku ingin berjalan bersamamu
Dalam hujan dan malam gelap
Tapi aku tak bisa melihat matamu

Aku ingin berdua denganmu
Di antara daun gugur
Aku ingin berdua denganmu
Tapi aku hanya melihat keresahanmu

Aku menunggu dengan sabar
Di atas sini, melayang-layang
Tergoyang angin, menantikan tubuh itu

Aku ingin berdua denganmu
Di antara daun gugur
Aku ingin berdua denganmu
Tapi aku hanya melihat keresahanmu…

Ingin berdua denganmu
Di antara daun gugur
Aku ingin berdua denganmu
Tapi aku hanya melihat keresahanmu

=============================================

Sejujurnya, saya juga belum terlalu lama mengetahui Band Payung Teduh. Minim. Yang saya tahu, mereka adalah alumni Universitas Indonesia, cuma sebatas itu. Pernah dengar mereka live beberapa bulan lalu di sebuah acara musik, tapi kemudian lenyap karena tidak menyimak dengan seksama penampilan mereka saat itu. Bertemu kembali dengan Payung Teduh di acara Ramadhan Jazz Festival 2012 di area Masjid Cut Meutia, Cikini, 28 Juli lalu. Kali itu, saya simak dengan seksama musik dan lirik nya, kemudian saya diam. Diam dan berfikir, kenapa musik sebaik ini tidak begitu menggema di Indonesia? Apa yang salah? Termasuk menyalahkan diri sendiri.

I’m sorry for the bad quality. Tapi, hidup kami cukup berkualitas :D.

Payung Teduh tampil sekitar pukul 1 pagi lebih, saat itu penonton masih ramai (Untuk acara Ramadhan, penonton masih berjubel, sangatlah luar biasa – Sahur). And Guess… mereka semua menanti Payung Teduh. Kami menyanyi bersama, saat itu pula saya merasakan rindingan yang tidak terjelaskan. Menyanyi massal, lagu Resah, seperti lirik di atas. Ratusan orang bernyanyi massal, saya pun ikut, secara kebetulan, saya hafal lagu Payung Teduh yang satu ini. Ramadhan Jazz Festival 2012 memang luar biasa, pun ketika menghabiskan waktu bersama teman-teman terbaik yang pernah saya punya. Seolah ingin terus bersama, melewati keresahan.

Owain Phyfe : La Prima Vez

Actually, I don’t know who is Owain Phyfe. But then, after I watched a documentary movie from German called PINA, in 3D format. PINA is a movie for Pina Bausch by Wim Wenders. I start to like everything related to it movie, for example… Hmm… a Song called “La Prima Vez”. And guess, I don’t know what does it mean :D. La Prima Ves was sung by Owain Phyfe (at this movie version).

La Prima Vez is one of the music soundtrack of it’s movie. Well, actually I like all of the songs from OST. PINA, I dunno… it’s magnificent, classic but elegant. It’s also heard painful, tears and weeps are felt everywhere. Amazing movie and also the music. You guys have to watch the movie, but I dunno how to watch it because I only got 2 free tickets from Goethe Institute last week. Maybe you should ask the Goethe Institute about it movie :D.

Alright, I’m talking about La Prima Vez by Owain Phyfe. I listened to it song from Youtube and tried to repeat it, then tried to figure out what does it mean. I heard that La Prima Vez means “The First Time”, it’s a kind of Spanish (cmiiw). You know guys, his voice is beautiful, even though I don’t know exactly what does it mean but I catch that he told me that he is in love.

Here is the La Prima Vez Lyric :

La prima vez ke te vidi
De tuz ojos me ‘namori

D’akel momento te ami
Fin a la tomba te amare.

Aserkate mi kerida
Salvadora de mi vida

Descubrite i avlame
Sekretos de la tu vida.
