Randy “The Ram” Robinson (AKA Robin Ramzinski) is a professional wrestler past his expiry date. Popular in the 80s, he continues to live for his former fame—wrestling on the weekends while he makes a living shoving boxes at the local grocery store. His best “friend” and confidant is a stripper, Cassidy—also past her prime and living in the past—for whose services he regularly pays. In the film we follow Randy through a crisis of identity when, because of heart problems, he can no longer wrestle. So he asks for more hours at the grocery store, seeks to amend his relations with his daughter, and attempts to advance his relationship with Cassidy. Randy, played superbly by Mickey Rourke, is eminently likeable; you earnestly yearn for him to succeed. But in the end all these efforts fail, and Randy, despite the danger, turns back to the one thing he knows and does…

The Internet and social media have made everybody a curator. We express personal profiles and share thoughts and opinions on literally anything. The Curate Award, a collaboration between the Prada Foundation and the Qatar Museums Authority, calls for submissions to find and showcase the creative spirit that comes with that movement. Judges such as Rem Koolhaas and Hans Ulrich Obrist will evaluate the works’ creativity and social significance before a public voting will vote the winner. 20 finalists will be exhibited in Italy and Qatar.

Aspiring curators are encouraged to create a two-minute video proposing their ideas and concepts. The competition is open to everyone and you can submit your work on the Curator Award website. The cheeky promo video may give you some inspiration. Watch it below.

The Chawed Rosin

Another clever and entertaining animation by PES. This one was nominated for an academy award.

More PES videos on the PES youtube channel. Western Spaghetti, made in a style similar to this film, is particularly good.

the fresh bias

I preface this review by saying I have not read ‘The Great Gatsby’, only knowing of how revered this great work of American literature is. From watching Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation I saw glimpses of an impressive narrative, if only underdeveloped characters and plot points could have better communicated it.


The film attempts to portray the exciting life of Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio), told through the experiences of Nick Carraway (Maguire). However the audience is only teased with Gatsby’s intriguing life and inexplicably never indulged. The film puts more priority on gaudy party scenes than creating a rapport with the characters. I did enjoy the visual spectacle of the festivities, especially the use of modern music set against the 1920’s parties, a brave choice that gave the film a fresh edge. However the first half of the film felt bloated with these expendable scenes, almost devoid of any narrative substance. This relegated the second half to characters the…

the movie troupe

Directed and co-written by Todd Phillips, The Hangover Part III stars Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Ken Jeong, John Goodman, Melissa McCarthy and Heather Graham.

While the movie steps away from the subject matter of its successful predecessors (it doesn’t revolve around a bachelor party or a wedding), The Hangover Part III also unfortunately steps away from the comedy that made the previous movies so successful.

Where The Hangover and The Hangover Part II utilised what I would call extreme shock comedy combined with the odd charm of Zach Galifianakis, The Hangover Part III utilises what I would call an unnecessarily large amount of violence towards animals combined with the angry stares of Ken Jeong.

The movie centres around Zach Galifianakis’ character, Alan, his erratic behaviour after the death of his father, and the criminal and manipulative exploits of Ken Jeong’s character, Mr. Chow. Although both of these characters…
