Jared Letto portrait as Joker is revealed and the opinion is yours!

jared-leto-the-joker

So how do you feel looking at Jared Letto as a Joker in this picture? Today is the 75th anniversary of The Joker’s debut in the Batman comics, and director David Ayer has shared the portrait of Jared Letto’s character in the movie ‘Suicide Squad’. The movie started shooting in Toronto and the story has that a team of super villains is gathered and given a chance at redemption by the government. ‘Suicide Squad’ hits theaters on August 5th, 2016 (so we’ll have to wait long time and probably there’ll be too much exposure and promotion on the film as we’ll watch Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, and Common alongside Jared Letto).

straightouttacompton

Here’s the trailer for the movie -documentary ‘Straight Outta Compton’. Ice Cube and Dr.Dre make a movie about the story of N.W.A. , how it all started and how it formed the hip-hop culture on the dangerous times of the late 80’s and early 90’s. It’s very interesting to see from their point of view (which i hope will be true and not only to sell copies and promote products) how the gangsta rap music begun.

Finding Fela – Ένα documentary για τη ζωή, τη μουσική και την πολιτική

Το FINDING FELA είναι ένα μουσικό documentary (ευχαριστούμε πολύ τις Νύχτες Πρεμιέρας που το συμπεριέλαβαν στο φετινό πρόγραμμα) που είναι γεμάτο μουσική. Αφρικανική μουσική για την ακρίβεια. Βγαλμένη από ψυχής, γεμάτη στίχους που έχουν να κάνουν με τη ζωή, με την πολιτική, με την αγάπη. Η έμπνευση προήλθε από το θεατρικό που ανέβηκε στο Broadway πριν 5 χρόνια (κι έχουμε την ευκαιρία να δούμε αρκετές σκηνές του.)

Fela Kuti αν δεν τον γνωρίζεις, δεν τον έχεις ακούσει ποτέ και σκέφτεσαι ‘δεν ακούω τέτοιες μουσικές κι ούτε θέλω’, είναι ο δημιουργός του afrobeat, συνδυάζει funk, afro και πάνω απ’όλα όπως ο ίδιος περιγράφει σε παλιότερη συνέντευξη του (θα τη δείτε στο documentary) δημιουργώντας μουσική, ξεγυμνώνει την ψυχή του για το κοινό. Γι’αυτό και τα τραγούδια του δε διαρκούν 3′ ή 4′, αλλά 12′ μπορεί και 28′ σε κάποιες συνθέσεις. Θεωρεί ότι όπως ο Beethoven, o Bach κι άλλοι κλασσικοί συνθέτες ένα έργο πρέπει να είναι ολοκληρωμένο , να έχει αρχή – μέση – τέλος. Το Finding Fela, είναι ενα υπέροχο documentary που περιγράφει παράλληλα την πολιτική κατάσταση στην Αφρική στις προηγούμενες δεκαετίες. Ψάξτε το, αξίζει το χρόνο σας, δεν πρόκειται να χάσετε ούτε λεπτό.
