5 major albums of April

Release Type: Album / 380

The group of Jared Leto has long reached the heights of popularity, when nothing can shake her. The good news is that at concerts, it will always be positive. The bad news: the quality of the studio work is affected exactly with the reverse familiar.

No, none of the musicians forgot how to play and none of the technicians forgot how to write them down. The problem is that America’s new album sounds so predictable and standard that it seems like the band really got us back in 2007. But in the worst sense. Songs fans will still be stolen by radiohits and sales leaders on iTunes and Google Play, but music lovers and ordinary fans of rock Zero have nothing to catch on the album. All this has already been on previous albums.

According to the plot of the tape, Wynn was connected with Colonel GRU Oleg Penkovsky, who offered his services to British intelligence in exchange for the opportunity to flee abroad. In 1961, Penkovsky signed the act of recruiting and worked for intelligence until 1962, when counterintelligence officers of the KGB arrested him and Wynne, who was his liaison. The colonel was shot, and Wynne was later exchanged for the Soviet intelligence officer Konon Molodoy.

Other details of the tape are still a secret.

Shooting “Elusive Avengers”

The first filming days ..

On May 6 at 9.00 am the shooting began in the scenery of “Daria’s hut”. Daria (N. Fedosova) – this is the same farmer, in which “Burnashi” stole a cow. The shooting continued until 17.30, 30 useful film meters were shot, but none of them entered the final version of the film.

May 7 shooting in the scenery of “hut Darya” continued (in the film episodes are not included).

May 10 – they shot an episode on the bell tower: the Avengers gathered for a meeting after Danka visited the rector of the church of Mokei’s father and learned that Ksanku “Burnash” was kept in a tavern.

This time the pavilion shootings were stopped and resumed only two weeks later – on May 23rd. They shot episodes in the “bathhouse”: the prisoner Danka is locked in a bathhouse; Yashka puts a knife through the pipe on the rope; the guard detects the prisoner’s escape and raises a cry: “Unclean!” – shouted the young “Burnash” (Saveliy Kramarov), “Escape!” – Ignat (Gennady Yukhtin) echoes him and the old “Burnash” (S. Zhevago). On the same day, the administrator of the group left for Ukraine, the district of Novaya Kahovka and Berislavl, in order to prepare a springboard for the arrival of the entire crew.

How to choose cartoons for children?

How to choose cartoons for children?On the photo: a frame from the cartoon "Song of the Sea"

Who of the parents did not have to wonder what it is possible to watch a child? How to entertain, but not to harm, to interest and continue the educational process in a game form? oKino.ua shares iron rules for the selection of cartoons for your child.

In the era of an abundance of film production, the choice of a cartoon for children is especially difficult. Behind the external format and the touching shell can hide completely not children’s subjects, humor and problems. To avoid mistakes and not puzzle the child with pressing themes, I propose to consider tapes by age categories.

Early age (0 to 3 years)

How to choose cartoons for children?The Magic Path

A few months after birth, the child begins to perceive sounds, visual images, catch the character of the music that you reproduce. Therefore, it is necessary to treat with trembling the choice, even the simplest “postcard” fairy tales. The atmosphere of the tapes should be soothing, benevolent, so that your child has a sense of trust in the environment. Children 2-3 years are characterized by great mobility and curiosity, but still unable to keep attention on one thing for a long time. By three years the child is well-oriented in colors, distinguishes heroes (usually animals) and correlates them with a certain behavior. In this case, cartoons should be used as a means for developing imagination and expanding knowledge about the outside world.

Recommended cartoons (2010 – 2015): “Geometric figures”; “TuTiTu”; “Ladushki”; “Crossroads in the jungle”; “The Magic Path”; “Robot and Monster”, “Pets in search of the rainbow”, “Knight Mike”, “Developing English cartoons for beginners”, “English for children: learning by color.”

Pre-school age (from 4 to 7 years)

How to choose cartoons for children?

Cat Thunder and Enchanted House

The period from 4 to 7 years is characterized by the highest development of children’s imagination. In the mind colorful images are born, which the child is able to remember and reproduce. Here the decisive in the choice is the message of the animated cartoons. It is very appropriate to show fairy tales with simple problems, but visually appealing positive characters, explaining the concepts of “good”, “bad.” Cartoons with a simple (predictable) moral choice of characters need further discussion. As a rule, the baby willingly shares his impressions and tries to imitate the screen character he liked.

Featured cartoons: “Tom and Jerry: Spy Games” (2015); “Animal Squad” (2015); “Sophia the Beautiful: the story of the princess” (2012); “Mashkin’s Tales” (2011); “Fairies: a legend about a monster” (2015); “Long live King Julian” (2014); “Postman Pat” (2014); “How to Train Your Dragon” (2014); “Stuck in time”; “The Cat Thunder and the Enchanted House” (2013).

Junior school age (from 8 to 11 years)

How to choose cartoons for children?

Beyond the hedge

For this period, a change in the way of life habitual for the child is characteristic. A new social role of the student appears, which is characterized not only by the systematic acquisition of knowledge, but also by a certain social status. Figuratively associative thinking is replaced by analytical, so the requirements for the cartoon are increasing. To strengthen the motivation of the child, to demonstrate the importance of primacy, the storylines of the achievements of the main characters should prevail in the tales. Another important topic that is recommended for the attention of the young spectator is the theme of social adaptation, self-affirmation among peers.

Recommended cartoons: “Penguins of Madagascar” (2014), “Strange charms” (2015), “Scooby doo. Fear of the scene “(2013); “Wave the Wing” (2014); “Puzzle” (2015); “The Song of the Sea” (2014); “The Adventures of a Cat in Boots” (2015); “On the other side of the fence” (2014); “City of Heroes” (2014); “Mr. Illuminator” (2013).

Turkish Star Wars: a trash-movie, which became a cult

Turkish Star Wars: a trash-movie, which became a cult

The Turkish version of the film starred actor Junet Arkin – the star of the main Turkish blockbusters

Today is May 4 – the day when fans celebrate their holiday "Star Wars". The date refers to the famous phrase "May the force be with you" ("Let the force be with you") from the movie. The parting words of the Jedi Knights turned into "May the fourth be with you" ("May peace be with you on the fourth of May.") and marked the beginning of an unofficial holiday "Star Wars".

This year, the Cinema Museum in London decided to coincide with this date, a special show of a Turkish film based on the world-famous film franchise George Lucas.

ABOUT "Turkish Star Wars", appeared on the screens in 1982, was forgotten shortly after the release. However, a few years ago the film gained popularity and became literally cult.

It is annually methodically included in the list "worst films in the history of cinema", than its creators are publicly proud.

Lovers of absurd films consider "Turkish Star Wars" a masterpiece: it is so bad that it is beautiful.

Its official name is Dunyayi Kurtaran Adam ("The man who saves the world"), but it is better known as "Turkish Star Wars", because it was borrowed ideas, characters and even footage from the picture of George Lucas.

Turkish Star Wars: a trash-movie, which became a cult

The film was shot with a minimal budget, and in some scenes in the background were projected footage from the original "Star Wars"

Turkish director Chetin Inanch wanted to shoot a sci-fi movie that would eclipse the famous movie.

But there was one serious problem: he did not have a budget. So he did very simply.

He gave a bribe to a guard in a Turkish cinema, he borrowed a film "star Wars", quickly made a copy of it and then cut out all the scenes of space battles.

Thus, he could get the special effects so necessary for spectacular cinema.

In the Turkish version of the film, actor Junet Arkin, who at that time starred in the main Turkish blockbuster, is in a spaceship with a motorcycle helmet on his head. Behind him are projected images from the canonical "Star Wars".

The film completely ignores copyright laws. The film’s authors also contributed music to the Hollywood blockbusters, among which "Indiana Jones", "Flash Gordon" and "Star Cruiser "Galaxy"".

Turkish Star Wars: a trash-movie, which became a cult

The film received a second life and a lot of fans around the world thanks to the Internet

The script of the painting does not copy the original plot to 100%. In action, elements appeared, which in "Star Wars" Lucas was not there.

Two Turkish men fly from space to save the Earth from the evil sorcerer. Kung fu techniques help them to defeat them, with which they deal with creatures, including robots with blue heads, like a yeti monster with red wool, skeletons and zombies.

This is not the first time that other countries, including India, the Philippines and Nigeria, have shot their own remakes of famous Hollywood blockbusters. However, according to Ian Smith, a specialist in the history of motion picture art from the Royal College of London, Turkey occupies a special place in the list of film plagiarism.

"The Turkish film industry in the 1960s, the 70s and the early 80s filmed the processed Hollywood films without any hesitation ".

Turkish Star Wars: a trash-movie, which became a cult

Critics did not like the film, but in 1982 he collected full halls in Turkey

Fans of this movie especially appreciate the Turkish remakes "Exorcist", "Batman", "Spider-Man" and "Captain America", filmed in the same period.

It was believed that the copies "Turkish Star Wars" on 35mm film were lost forever, but thanks to the assistance of the American film enthusiast Ed Glacer, one of them was discovered in Istanbul.

"There is hardly anything comparable to them ["Turkish Star Wars"]. In some moments, what is happening on the screen is so extravagant and outrageous that you begin to admire it", – he said.

Creators "Star Wars" They did not try to sue their Turkish counterparts for copyright infringement.

Director Chetin Inanch speaks of his creation with pride.

In an interview with the Turkish magazine about the movie Beyaz Perde, he said: "Now there are so many opportunities and technological achievements, but will anyone be able to repeat my film?"

A resident of India passed away while watching the “War of Infinity”

A resident of India passed away while watching the "War of Infinity"

“Avengers: The War of Infinity”

According to the newspaper Times of India, 43-year-old Peddapasupula Baash, who worked as a bricklayer at the construction site, died while watching the blockbuster studio Marvel “The Avengers: War of Infinity” at the Cinehub Multiplex Cinema, in the city of Proddatur, Andhra Pradesh.

The body of the deceased employees of the cinema was discovered only after the end of the session. Workers of the cinema for a long time thought that the visitor is waiting for the scene after the credits. When the credits were over, but Baasha remained sitting, he was removed from his glasses and found out that the man had died.

According to the preliminary police report, the man died a natural death. Nevertheless, the investigation continues.

“War of Infinity” was launched in India, as in almost the rest of the world, on April 27. At the moment, the blockbuster studio Marvel collected in the world’s rental of 857 million dollars.

Rick Okasek on the inclusion of The Cars in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: “This is an excellent final touch to our history”

When The Cars released their latest studio album Move Like This in 2011, the American press proceeded with laudatory reviews, and the public was filled with high expectations. It seems the fans most of all wanted two things: that the beloved band should go on longer and that it was finally included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And if the first directly depended on the musicians themselves (more precisely, from Rick Okasek, frontman of the group), then on the topic of the second one could begin to harass jokes like those about Leo and Oscar.

But here it happened. For all “motorists”, the year 2017 was marked by a joyous event (and this is not only the premiere of the new Mazda CX-5): The Cars finally received universal recognition. The spiral of musical history brings us back to Cleveland, as Okasek tells us in detail in an interview with the American Rolling Stone. At some point, he practically puts the question squarely: “Have we written enough music, have we invented original and memorable things enough to receive such an honor?”

In reality, the very motive for this interview was a big, affirmative answer to this question. Where more interesting are the hints of Okasek that the story of The Cars, Despite the seductively beautiful denouement that begs itself, probably is not over yet …

El Di Meola in facts and quotations

  • The real name of the musician is Albert Lawrence Dimeola, he was born on July 22, 1954 in one of the suburbs of New York and has Italian roots.
  • Music entered the life of Di Meola in early childhood: first he practiced drums, and at the age of 8 switched to guitar. The first teacher of Al was a certain Bob Eslianian (or Aslanyan), a guitarist of Armenian origin.
  • Like all normal teens, Di Meola listened to such artists as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Ventures. Interest in jazz arose after acquaintance with the work of jazz guitarist Larry Koryella. By the way, to the Beatles Di Meola still treats with special warmth and even acted with his own arrangement of the creativity of the “Liverpool Four” in the jazz manner.
  • Entering the music college in Berkeley in 1971, Al Di Meola became a truly legendary person there. His zeal became a talk of the town: according to rumors, Di Meola spent eight to ten hours a day on music lessons.
  • Already at the age of 19, Dee Meola made his debut as part of the famous jazz-rock band Return to Forever, headed by Chick Corea.
  • In 1976, Al Di Meola began a solo career. For 4 years he released several albums and collected a lot of prestigious awards: his records were recognized three times by the best guitar albums, and Di Meola himself was awarded the title of the best jazz guitarist by the version of the magazine Guitar Player.
  • Since 1980, Di Meola’s close collaboration with other guitar virtuosos began: Paco de Lucia and John McLaughlin. Having united in a group under the uncomplicated title The Guitar Trio, they recorded several short films. The concert album Friday Night in San Francisco (1980) was a tremendous success, and many are far from the last in the music world people consider it to be the best guitar record in the history of music.
  • Ala Di Meola was greatly influenced by the music of Astor Piazzolla, an Argentine composer famous for his tango. The musicians were friends, and Al even considers Piazzolla as their godfather in music. Ideas Piazzolla Di Meola developed within the established in 1990, the group Al Di Meola World Sinfonia, which included, among other things, Latin American musicians.
  • In 2005, Di Meola recorded a joint album with a certain Leonid Agutin, called Cosmopolitan Life. Strangely enough, the author of the music was Agutin, not the old El.
  • Al Di Meola, thanks largely to his early albums, is also considered one of the pioneers of the shreda – ultra-fast sound extraction when playing the guitar. In this context, his influence was recognized by such masters as Yngwie Malmsteen, John Petrucci and (suddenly) Richie Sambora, who seemed not to have been noticed in excessive “rate of fire”.
  • In the 60’s it was necessary to play, like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix or Jimmy Page. Otherwise, no one would work with you. So it happened with me. I did not want to be taken into any group, they say, I do not fit “according to the standard”, style and all that.
  • I actively use 80 guitars. I really love playing the guitar, which made the Spanish master Conte Fermanes. Also, Gibson made specially for me guitars of the model “Al Di Meola”: one jazz and one electric guitar. They are unique, and more such guitars do not exist.
  • About modern show business:
    Someone has the impudence to call them artists. But they are not artists. In fact, they are robbers! These guys have zero talent. Nothing. They can not sing. They can not compose music. They do not know how to play musical instruments. They can not even dance properly. Look, for example, on Eminem. But this is not music. It’s just some kind of evil energy, which is clothed in a kind of pseudo-poetic form. All this upsets me beyond any measure.
  • I already took lessons in a music school, but in accordion class. Can not imagine how I hated it. Once my sister arranged a party for us at home, which brought a bunch of her friends and girlfriends. And then someone brought the guitar and the Fender amplifier. I was lucky, because the guitar hit me in my arms. From this day my life changed forever.
  • About Al Di Meola World Sinfonia:
    The band fully corresponds to my musical concept. The team includes representatives of different countries – Argentina, Cuba and Israel. And at concerts we perform not only my works, but also the works of Astor Piazzolla. And they organically complement each other.
  • I am sure that music is quite capable of healing. Personally, before a concert, I can feel tired or even sick. And during the game, all this negative goes somewhere … in general, playing the guitar for me somewhere between religion and meditation. Therefore, considering the emergence of a variety of situations in life, sometimes you just need to give up everything, and then sit down and start playing music …
