Léirmheas Suicide Squad

Ag leanúint leis an nós is déanaí i saol aistriúcháin scannánaíochta ar ghreannáin Meiriceánacha – tagann grúpa sárdhaoine le chéile in aghaidh an oilc. Ní leor é laoch amháin i gcroílár an aicsin sa lá atá inniu ann; is éard is faiseanta anois ná “obair foirne” mar ní neart go cur le chéile. Tá éagsúlacht mhór amháin sa scéal seo i gcodarsnacht le the Avengers (2012) agus Batman vs Superman (2016), áfach: ní ar sárlaochra atáimid ag trácht níos mó, ach ar bhithiúnaigh. Is saothar neamhghnáth de chuid DC Comics é seo, atá dúshláin drámaíochta nua bainteach leis – mar shampla, conas namhaid a léiriú a dhéanann an domhain a shábháil ach gan a bheith 100% ina laochra. Is suimiúil an codarsnacht san, má léirítear é i gceart.

Suicide Squad

Nuair atá baol ann go mbeadh sárlaochra ag dul ó smacht, is léir sa scannán go bhfuil eagla roimh na húdaráis roimh na rudaí gur féidir tarlú mura bhfuil plean cúltaca ar fáil dóibh nuair a tharlaíonn sé. Is dá bharr a chuireann an ceannasaí Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) foireann le chéile leis na naimhde is contúirteacha dá bhfuil ann chun dul i ngleic leis an olc seo, agus baol báis orthu mura leanann siad na rialacha go léir. Tá cuid mhaith de na príomhcharachtair ann sa ghreannán DC: Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Enchantress, Captain Boomerang agus Rick Flag – an ceann deireannach ná an t-aon fíor-shaighdeoir ina measc (nach bhfuil ina namhaid ar shárlaochra). Cuireadh trí charachtair sa bhreis sa Suicide Squad scannánaíochta áfach: El Diablo, Killer Croc agus Katana. Níl éinne cinnte an chúis go bhfuil carachtair sa bhreis ann mura gcuireann siad mórán leis an bplota. Is rud tábhachtach é éagsúlacht cine a chur chun cinn sa scáthlán mór, ach d’fhéadfá creidiúint gurb é sin an t-aon chuspóir a bhí leis na breiseáin san. Ní hea nach bhfuil siad suimiúil – go deimhin, is deacair bheith níos ciúile ná ridire Seapánach atá claíomh draíochtúil aici, nó fear Meicsiceach ábalta tine a lasadh lena lámha, agus duine atá DNA crogaill air (agus b’fhéidir beagáinín ró-chosúil le Bem Grimm ó na Fantastic Four (2005) – oops!) ach bheifeá ag súil le tuilleadh miniúcháin ar a gcúlra mura bhfuil siad sa ghreannán cheana féin – agus theip ar an scannán leis sin. Ní thuigtear an chúis go bhfuil an chumhacht suimiúil sin acu, nó cén áit as a tháinig siad.

Will Smith Suicide Squad

Níl plota soiléir ag an scannán, agus is fadhb mór é sin chomh maith. Sna greannáin, is scéal é seo a tharlaíonn i ndiaidh cúpla tragóid le sárlaochra, agus tuigtear é sin sa léitheoireacht, ar nós dá mbeadh sé ag tosú i lár leabhar mór. Sa scannán áfach, níl leathanaigh roimh an tús agus ní féidir a bheith ag súil go mbeadh an scéal sa chúlra ar eolas ag na lucht féachanna ar fad mura bhfuil sé taifeadta i srath. Tuigtear go bhfuil an Suicide Squad curtha le chéile “ar eagla na heagla” mar ionadaithe ar laochra fiúntacha – agus déanann sé sin ciall go dtí deireadh an scannáin nuair a bhfeictear Batman. Má bhí sé ann an t-am ar fad, cén maitheas a bhí ar an trioblóid ar fad le lucht an Squad? – Ní mar a shíltear a bhítear, ach is doiligh tuiscint eile a bheith agat ar an scannán de bharr droch-stiúradh.

AND RATPAC-DUNE ENTERTAINMENT LLC Photo Credit: Clay Enos/ TM & (c) DC Comics Caption: (L-r) MARGOT ROBBIE as Harley Quinn and JARED LETO as The Joker in Warner Bros. Pictures' action adventure "SUICIDE SQUAD," a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

Murach leor na botúin ar fad, ní chabhraíonn an drámaíocht de chuid Jared Leto mar Joker – an t-aon bithiúnach mór atá saor ón bpríosún an scannán ar fad. Léiríonn sé cineál grá do Harley Quinn agus é ar thóir uirthi an t-am ar fad, cé nach fíor é sin sna greannáin. Téann sé ar ais di sa bhunscéal go deimhin, ach ní ar bhealach tuiscineach grámhar léi – is meafar é ar an síceapatach: tá sé ábalta mothucháin a léiriú gan iad a bheith ann i ndáiríre, agus déanann an “grá” bréagach sin dóchar do Harley Quinn, atá ró-mhór as a meabhair chun dochar a aithint ó maitheas. Is ról an-chasta é go deimhin. Cé go raibh Margot Robbie go breá mar Harley Quinn, ní raibh Jared Leto cabhrach ina ról féin.

Suicide Squad All Characters Poster

Ar iomlán, is scéal an-chasta ar fad é Suicide Squad le haistriú i gcruth scannáin, agus is dóigh liom gur éirigh go maith leis ó thaobh ceachtanna moráltachta a mhúineadh: bíonn na lucht féachanna lán-chinnte gur daoine daonna iad na bithiúnaigh, agus gur féidir leo dea-rudaí a dhéanamh má thugtar seans dóibh. Ag an am céanna, ní hionann dea-rudaí agus a bheith i do laoch, ós rud é gur gá dóibh an pionós sa phriosún a shárú go fóill agus ní bhfaigheann éinne saoirse go dleathach. Cé gur éirigh leis an scannán na ceachtanna sin a mhúineadh dúinn, níl mórán loighic taobh thiar den scéal agus ní bhaintear mórán tairbhe as cé chomh casta is atá na carachtair. Is píosa spraoi é gan dabht, d’aineoinn na fadhbanna.

Léirmheas Finding Dory

Finding Dory Turtle(MoviesAtEzine)

Scannán álainn, greannmhar agus taitneamhach do na páistí é Finding Dory, le meafar fiúntach ann faoi sláinte intinne gur féidir le daoine fásta tairbhe a bhaint as chomh maith.

Tosaíonn an scannán seo le tagairt ghonta ar shaol Dory nuair a bhí sí ina páiste, agus céard a tharla léi ar Finding Nemo (2003) tar éis di bualadh lena cairde Marlin agus Nemo. D’aineoinn sin, is féidir scéal an éisc Dory a thuiscint gan an chéad scannán a bheith feicthe agat cheana más duine de lucht féachanna óige thú. Tá béim i bhfad níos mó ar rudaí ar nós grá theaghlaigh agus feasacht ar mhíchumas sa scannán ná ar an ord croineolaíoch an scéil féin. Pléitear na ceisteanna seo go magúil sa scéal, le hacmhainn grinn cliste agus píosa teannais ann chomh maith.

Finding Dory

Sa scannán seo, ní hé Nemo atá in easnamh, ach teaghlach Dory. Tagann na cuimhní urthi go mall de réir a chéile agus cuireann sé sin fonn uirthi dul ar thóir ar a tuismitheoirí a bhí fágtha taobh thiar di tráth dá raibh. Ní coimhlint ba chúis leis, ach rud éigin níos dáiríre: níl Dory ábalta cuimhniú ar rudaí go gearrthéarmach riamh, agus dá bharr sin creideann sí go bhfuil an bhealach abhaile dearúdta aici leis na blianta fada nuair a bhí sí an-óg ar fad. Téann sí trasna na farraige i gcomhluadar lena cairde, ar eachtra chun a háit cónaithe a aimsiú arís, agus is ansan a dhéanann sí cúpla cairde nua ar nós ochtapas leithleach, an éan Becky, agus an míol Destiny a mhúin an teanga “míol” do Dory tráth dá raibh.

Finding Dory

Is beochan álainn é gan amhras, a dhéanann aithrise ar an aigéin ar bhealach suntasach fáilteach ar nós dá mbeadh tú ag tumadh go domhain ann in éineacht leis na gcarachtair. Tá na héisc agus créatúir na mara eile chomh héagsúil ó chéile gur féidir smaoineamh ar dhaoine daonna nuair a bhreathnaítear orthu – tá blas éagsúil sa chaint acu de réir a spéiceas agus pearsantacht. Is píosa siamsaíochta é Finding Dory do gach aoisghrúpa, lán le haicsean, greann agus ceachtanna.

Léirmheas Star Trek Beyond By Natalia Danzmann

“Níl a leithéid ann is anaithnid – níl ann ach an méid atá againn agus an chruinne atá fós le haimsiú”. Cé nach bhfuil an teachtaireacht seo ann sa réamhfhógra (ní chloistear é ach sa scannán féin), is achoimre fiúntach é ar an scéal ar fad. Níl aon rud anaithnid i ndáiríre: ciallaíonn sin go bhfuil sé tábhachtach cairde nua – agus eolas nua dá bharr – a aimsiú ar fud na cruinne, agus ciallaíonn sé chomh maith go mb’fhéidir go bhfuil naimhde ann i bhfad níos cóngraí ná a cheaptar!

Star Trek Beyond

Ní haon ionadh go bhfuil formhór sásta leis an rath scannánaíochta seo: bhí Star Trek Beyond in ann gach iontas na sraith teilifíse na 70idí a thabhairt ar ais go dtí an scáthlán mór arís gan stró. Ag an am céanna, áfach, tá feabhas mór tágtha ar na héifeachtaí speisialta, agus cuireann an ceol Rihanna blaisín nua-aimseartha sa scannán  ar mhaithe leis na lucht féachanna óga a shásamh.

Star Trek Beyond

Sa scannán seo, téann an foireann Enterprise níos faide fós ar aghaidh sa Spás, áit ina bhfuil namhaid fíor-chumhachtach ag taisteal chomh maith. Cuirfidh na hallúraigh oilc seo na daoine daonna ar fad i mbaol mura bhfuil Captaen Kirk agus a chairde ann dá stopadh in am. Scéal simplí go leor é seo a dhéanann tagairt ar an aimsir chaite chomh maith, ar bhealach intuigthe do na leantóirí nua. Ní hé an plota a chruthaíonn an draíocht ar fad, ach an tuiscint gur rud tábhachtach é díriú ar na gcarachtair níos mó ná sa scéal féin. Is féidir an-chuid sult a bhaint as carachtair atá cur síos suimiúil orthu, agus déantar dearúd as an easpa fo-phlota sa scéal dá bharr.

Jaylah Star Trek Beyond

D’éirigh go breá leis an scannán seo chomh maith mar chomóradh 50 bliain ar an chéad heagrán Star Trek riamh: cuimhnítear ar Leonard Limoy go héasca i rith an scéal, agus ar Anton Yelchin freisin go hindíreach. Is sárshaothar é seo, a dhéanann súil siar ar an chuid is suntasaí den srath na 70idí ar bhealach atá intuigthe agus taitneamhach do pháistí agus daoine fásta araon.

“Die Meistersinger” Live from Glyndebourne at SGC Dungarvan one of the “most thrilling operatic experiences”

The cinema was alive with the sound of music last night here at SGC Dungarvan when Wagner’s acclaimed Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg was brought to vivid life by David McVicar’s stunning production. Composed by Michael Güttler and starring the celebrated cast of Gerald Finley, Amanda Majeski, Michael Schade, supported by the astounding London Philharmonic Orchestra, this stirring feat of operatic mastery came live to SGC Dungarvan from Glyndebourne. Tremendously enjoyed by all who got to experience this joyous comedy, with Dungarvan’s own Jim Ryan giving the following praise-filled review –

“A memorable performance in a superb, unfussy production with Orchestral playing that sparkled right from the first note. Great singing all round with Gerald Finley giving a performance for the ages in the mammoth role of Sachs. The chorus sang magnificently, with the ‘crowd’ scenes wonderfully choreographed. From ‘the best seat in the house’, I found this to be one of my most thrilling operatic experiences in fifty years of operagoing. Bravo Glyndebourne.”

A real treat for opera fans. If you missed out on this beautiful performance fear not because we have plenty more cultural events coming to our screens in the coming days, weeks and months.

Lismore Opera Festival – “Marrying the Art Form of Opera with the Beauty of Lismore”

Begin the summer on a musical note with the Lismore Opera Festival, a three day event teeming with vibrant music, theatre and more.  Taking place between the 2nd and 4th of June, this unique affair is set in the stunning surroundings of Lismore Castle and Gardens. Now in its seventh year, the festival invites you to experience original productions of the world’s best loved operas performed by Irish and international singers and an Irish Chamber orchestra right here in the sunny South-East.

Lismore Opera Festival

Lighting up Lismore since 2010, the festival was founded by Jennifer O’Connell, the former Marketing Director of Opera Ireland and Dieter Kaegi, the former Artistic Director of Opera Ireland.  Ireland’s only summer opera festival, it is an unparalleled event. Focusing on Mozart’s Cozi fan tutte, this year’s festivities offers a fresh production of the much loved comic opera.

Kindly taking time out of her busy schedule, Jennifer shared what prompted her and her colleague to establish the festival. After years of visiting Lismore, she fell in love with the area, believing it to be the perfect place to “marry the art form of opera with the beauty of the location”. The opulent castle environs provide an ideal setting, with the grounds’ stables transformed into a pop-up opera house. Not only enticing opera-lovers from all over to return annually, the festival is also welcomed each year by a drove of swallows that flock to the stables just in time for the musical happenings. It seems the love the festival has for the locality is mutual.

Lismore Opera Festival

More popular than ever, Jennifer attributed the festival’s success to a steadfast blend of “tenacity, hard work and not giving up”, coupled with the loyal support of patrons, without whom she says the festival would not have survived. Such support enables new initiatives to be crafted which have drawn in more people, allowing it to thrive.

This year also sees the introduction of a Fringe Festival, which includes a wide range of events. Whether it’s a sitar performance in Saffron Indian Restaurant or traditional Irish music in Foley’s on the Mall, the Fringe Festival has something for everyone, introducing, in the words of Jennifer, “a little flavour of world music” to the weekend.

The festival aims to continue expanding, hoping next year will see three nights of opera rather than two. Judging by the excited interest buzzing around the event, this news will be welcomed with zeal. We here at SGC Dungarvan warmly welcome it too as supporting the arts are an ever passionate priority for us. We try to broadcast as many live performances from our screens as possible and so are delighted to get behind this Irish opera festival and its commendable melodious endeavours. Best of luck to all involved!

Hungarian Documentary The Horsearcher Makes Its Irish Cinema Debut at SGC Dungarvan

Galloping into SGC Dungarvan this month is the highly acclaimed Géza Kaszás documentary film The Horsearcher, about world-famous Hungarian horse archer Master Lajos Kassai. Focusing on the founder of modern horseback archery, this fascinating documentary offers a glimpse into the ancient practice, detailing how Kassai, a modern warrior and philosopher, has recreated the bow tradition of his ancestors, evoking the beauty and skill of their martial arts, and mounting to found The Kassai Horseback Archery School, a world-class training facility, where everyone from those seeking the ultimate equestrian training challenge to the stars of Hollywood go to develop their horseback skills to extreme excellence.

Premiering in Hungary back on 21st January, The Horsearcher will make its Irish theatre debut here at SGC Dungarvan. In Hungarian with English subtitles, it displays the power of cinema to amplify cultural diversity, thereby creating a more enriching cinematic experience for all. For the first time, horse-lovers can take a peek into the Kassai’s exceptional training facility, sharing in his extremely unique talents, from the safety and comfort of your cinema seat. Each year, between Christmas and New Year, members of Kassai’s school gather in Kassia Valley near Kaposmérő to partake in an intensive training course where both they and their horses learn to stay active in even the harshest of conditions. Moreover, Kassai’s facility also caters to the stars, as shown when Matt Damon took lessons with the master horse-back archer in 2015 in preparation for his role as a mounted archer in The Great Wall. The 115 minute documentary examines Kassai’s activities, such as this exceptional training course, as well as the intellectual background to horse-archery, the cultural role it plays, and how the steppe culture of horsemen is undergoing a revival in Hungary, thanks to the dedication of Master Lajos Kassai to preserving horseback archery as a cultural heritage, martial art and sport.

The Horsearcher hits screens on Sunday 22nd May at 7pm. Tickets are available from the cinema or from the Phoenix Creative Glass (087 667 4089).

My Name Is Emily Premiere in Aid of Dungarvan Hospital A Roaring Success

My Name Is Emily SGC Dungarvan Premiere

The theatre really revved into life here at SGC Dungarvan last night for the much anticipated premiere of My Name Is Emily. The award-winning independent Irish drama, directed by Simon Fitzmaurice and starring Evanna Lynch, debuted here among a bustling crowd of over 250 people. The night, which was a huge success, was organised by Yesteryear Motor Club in aid of St. Vincent’s End of Life Unit at Dungarvan Hospital.

My Name Is Emily SGC Dungarvan Premiere

Of course, the main attraction of the night was the gleaming, now illustrious, yellow Renault 4L that took pride of place in the chock-full lobby. The superbly maintained vintage vehicle belonged to Dungarvan’s very own Thomas Coffey, who the night was in honour of. Tom very kindly donated his beloved car to the project after the movie crew tracked down the vehicle following an extensive search of the internet and garages across the nation. Tom’s daughter, Joyce Coffey, told how the crew were thrilled to have Tom be a part of their team. Attending the Dublin premiere and the Galway Film Festival, Tom saw his star car journey to the big screen, making this critically acclaimed movie possible. Sadly, Tom passed away on New Year’s before he could see his car make its triumphant homecoming. He received the very best of care in Dungarvan Hospital, spending his last days in the End of Life Unit which this event was in aid of.

My Name Is Emily SGC Dungarvan Premiere

After a little careful manoeuvring, the prized Renault sailed through the doors to park proudly in the centre of the cinema and bask in the much-deserved praise which those in attendance heaped on the four-wheeled celebrity. The night was a roaring success, with everyone enjoying some delicious nibbles and wine, kindly provided by Daly Catering, before settling down to enjoy the movie. An immensely enjoyable night for all, which SGC Dungarvan was delighted to be a part of and to help such an amazing cause.

My Name Is Emily SGC Dungarvan Premiere

Cinema-goers can see the star car in action for themselves at SGC Dungarvan as My Name Is Emily will be playing here over the coming week. The powerful film traces the odyssey of a young girl, Emily (Evanna Lynch), who runs away from a foster home in search of her visionary father who is a patient in a psychiatric ward. Before long Emily finds herself on a journey of self-discovery as this story of madness, redemption and love unfolds.
