What Is “Bandersnatch”? Here’s Why You Should Watch It

If you’ve been online in the past few days, chances are you’ve heard about the latest obsession from viewers of the Black Mirror Netflix series. We give you everything you need to know about the interactive special which the internet can’t stop talking about.

While fans of Black Mirror await its fifth season, the creators of the show released an interactive film titled Bandersnatch which has captured the attention of the internet and created debate whether it is a film or a game.

Set mostly in 1984, the film follows a young video game programmer named Stefan Butler (Fionn Whitehead), who is programming his own interactive video game called Bandersnatch which in turn is based off a novel by the same name by author Jerome F. Davies. As the story progresses, Butler begins to question his reality in the disturbed Black Mirror-style the show is renown for.

Arguably the most unique aspect of the special is that during different points of the episode, viewers encounter a “choose your own adventure” option where they are forced to make choices which affect the outcome of the story. Each time a decision is offered, viewers are given 10-seconds to choose which option to go with.

These choices include seemingly inconsequential things like choosing which cereal Butler eats, what kind of music he listens to, or more vital ones which determine how he reacts to certain situations. In each instance, a choice is automatically selected should the viewer fail to make a decision within the allotted 10-seconds.

Netflix announced that there are more than 1 trillion choice variations viewers can make for the film. The story has an approximate running time of 90-minutes which can vary for viewers based on their choices throughout the film. However, if a viewer takes the quickest route without opting for do-overs, they can get through the film in just 40-minutes.

Although some choices affect the story to a larger degree than others, everytime a choice is made, the story is nevertheless affected in some capacity. For example, when the viewer chooses which cassette tape Butler listens to, the music in the episode immediately parallels that in the scene. Each and every choice leads to other choices later on in the story, as well as to an ending. Netflix has stated there are “five main endings with multiple variants of each”.

Since the special was released on December 28th, viewers have debated whether Bandersnatch is a game or a video. Many argue that due to the interactive nature of the special it is more of a video than a film, while others decry their lack of emotional investment into the characters and events, unlike other Black Mirror episodes due to requiring to be focused on decision making throughout the video.

If users, however, prefer to watch it like a film, they can allow the 10-second timer to rundown each time and allow an option to automatically be selected for them. Netflix has not revealed how the choice is made when users do not select a choice, therefore it remains a mystery whether it is random or guided to an ending.

The fifth season of Black Mirror has been announced but due to Bandersnatch the release date has been pushed back to later in 2019.

For those unafraid of spoilers, Forbes created a walkthrough for how to navigate to all five possible endings.

Watch: Dave Grohl On All Instruments In New Song “Play”

For many years Dave Grohl has led the Foo Fighters to thrill thousands of people in crowds and concerts all over the world. So it is news that he has released a spectacular video showing him performing an almost impossible feat playing seven musical instruments. The video which lasts for 23 minutes has gone viral with the fans of Foo Fighters flooding the comment section with accolades. The documentary which was directed by Grohl was shot in two parts; the aim was to show how much dedication he has put into making good music for the world.

The first part of the documentary shows Grohl behind the scenes talking about music and the efforts put into creating the sounds that the fans have come to like for many years. In the second part of the documentary, Grohl is seen playing seven instruments with so much expertise for 23 minutes. The show was recorded from different angles to enhance the experience, and the sound was particularly configured to promote the different unique sounds of the instruments that were played.

In the press release, it was noted that the project was more about showing the fans a peek into the background activities that create the music they love. It also attempts to express the passion of a musician and his attachment to musical instruments without which it will be impossible to create the amazing sounds they love. Grohl also speaks about the challenges they face behind the scenes and the efforts the band puts into making the music sound the way the audience expects every time.

Grohl’s spectacular performance features him playing an instrumental with the seven instruments on after the other. It was a revealing show that indicated all instruments could produce the sounds we want if only the user knows how they work. Grohl attributes his expertise with the instruments to the need for self-development which pushes musicians like him to put in more efforts in making good music.

To express his passion for music and playing the instruments, Grohl describes the instruments arranged on a stage like a playground where the instruments are the toys, and he is an excited child who cannot wait to start exploring the different sounds each instrument produces. While addressing the challenges, he encounters while making music Grohl compares the experience to a puzzle that you need to keep working on until it is solved.

The documentary titled “Play” has been released online to give the viewers an interactive opportunity to study Grohl’s performance using the seven instruments. It can also be downloaded for use by educational institutions where the documentary can be used to teach students learning about music.

Grohl did mention that the documentary was shot from different angles on purpose. It was done to increase the level of engagement the viewers can have while studying his expert use of the instruments. In our opinion, that was the best feature of the entire documentary.

Spider Boy Steals the Show

As I sat in the movie cinema, giant popcorn and coke zero in hand, I was ready to be disappointed. “Spiderman Homecoming” was definitely not my first choice, but never one equipped to fight peer pressure, there I was. It’s not only that I am not the biggest fan of super-hero movies, but I’m also not one who is crazy for change, especially since Tobey Maguire did such a good job all those years ago at really personifying the angst of Spidey boy. And while Andrew Garfield did okay in bringing a different light to what it means to be half man/half spider, I just wasn’t sure my solidarity with the original cast members could allow me to enjoy yet another re-make.

But was I wrong.

While the plot did have certain unique aspects, like focusing being Spiderman than becoming Spiderman, it was surprisingly the young, spunky, and utterly adorable Tom Holland acting as Peter Parker who stole the show. This teenage Spidey brought with him a whole new aura when he donned the red and blue suit and webbed himself around town, flaunting his abilities thanks to a bite from the infamous radioactive spider. Unlike the typical broody, nervous and over-emotional Peter Parker embodied by past actors, this Peter is your typical goofy, award and quirky teen who genuinely considers things like exposing himself as Spiderman only to gain a smile from his school crush.


It is this very realistic teenage attitude of Tom Holland’s version of Spiderman and Peter Parker that makes him so endearing. I was ready to start criticizing how newbie Hollander was nowhere near the Tobey Spiderman I came to love, but instead, I was charmed exactly by the fact that he portrayed such a different version of the character, and both myself and my girlfriends stepped out the cinema with one thing on our lips “cutest Spiderman of all time!”And it is not only the character of Spiderman people are falling in love with, but adorable star Tom Holland is getting hearts far and wide caught in his web with his boyish charm and enchanting British ascent clear from the many tweets from across the glove expressing their delight of the new Spiderman in town. From expressing relief that their new crush was of legal age, to stating “TOM HOLLAND IS THE PUREST THINK IN THIS WORLD which is saying something because my dog exists”

One of the reasons of the breakout performance could be that while other actors previously cast as Spiderman where significantly older than the teenage character which they portrayed (Tobey Maguire at aged 27 and Garfield aged 28) Holland was cast to play Spiderman at merely 19! Being so much closer to the age and stage you are meant to perform could be one of the key factors which made this rendition of schoolboy Spiderman that much more authentic. Flopping around in his oversized hoodies, feeling like a superhero god when he helps an old lady cross the street, and worrying more than anything about proving his worth, this Parker believably tries (and usually fails) to balance passing Spanish class and saving the world.

Logan has Left the Building

Although Hugh Jackman hung his claws as Wolverine after seventeen years, the fans of the X-Men series can rejoice in the fact that his last movie might just be the best in the bunch.

Hugh Jackman, who has recently successfully beaten cancer for the sixth time, says farewell to the character which defined his career. In Logan, which came out last week, Wolverine puts his adamantium claws for the final time to welcome the new generation of X-Men. It is set in the year of 2029 in the dystopian USA, where the mutants are nearly extinct and there hasn’t been a mutant born in almost 25 years. Logan, who works as a driver and drinks his days away somewhere near the Mexican border, finds himself chased by the organization called Transgien. In one of the most grounded superhero movies of our generation, Logan and his “daughter” Laura go on an emotional journey, cathartic in a way, which sees him come to terms with himself and the world. The inspiration for the movie came from a graphic novel Old Man Logan written by Mark Millar and Steven McNiven.

This rare R-rated superhero movie, besides the star of the show Hugh Jackman, has a stellar cast. Patrick Stewart returns as Professor Charles Xavier, while the character of Laura is played by the newcomer Dafne Keen. On the opposite side are Richard E. Grant and Boyd Holbrook, who you may recall form the Netflix’s TV series Narcos. Critics praised the movie, especially for its gritty take on the superhero genre which is flooding the cinemas nowadays. It defies the standards of our usual superhero movie, as it is violent, thought-provoking but surprisingly vulnerable and sentimental at the same time. Some critics even compared it as to being The Dark Knight of the series. Furthermore, they lauded the performances, especially from the Wolverine himself Hugh Jackman, as well as Patrick Stewart and Dafne Keen, who will undoubtedly return in the future films. There was a slight hope that Jackman could return as well, but he refused to be a part of Deadpool 2, which is the next movie in that universe being released in 2018.

The audience around the world also recognized the film’s importance and greatness. They rewarded it with a staggering box office figures. It will most likely beat the record for the best opening day of any R-rated movie. Also, it is heading for an eye-watering 80 million dollars worldwide. If that happens, Logan will be the second best opener in the franchise, just behind the first spinoff in the series X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which earned 85 million dollars. The success of Logan is not something that should come as a surprise to people around the world, as it came just a year after the first R-rated superhero movie in a while in the form of Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool.
Many tears will be shed at the end of the movie, but they will not be in vain. After seventeen years and six movies, a tiresome Jackman deserved his swan song, a final performance, the best at last.

Inception

Let’s just face it, 2010 has had some great movies: Shutter Island, Toy Story 3, and even some surprises –Karate Kid. No one expected that movie to be good. But, Christopher Nolan’s Inception took the first page in my book.

Imagine, just for a brief of the second, some futuristic world where people can transmit themselves into peoples’ dreams to extract information from those dreams and plant an idea. Leonardo DiCaprio is a thief with uncommon ability to enter someone’s dream and steal their secrets. This movie has everything: the acting is excellent, screenplay, sound production, visual effects, Christopher Nolan spent almost ten years writing this story and it’s perfect.

Okay, let’s get started with the story, and don’t worry – no spoiler alert, because the movie is basically immune to spoilers. If you knew how it ended it’s meaningless unless you know how the story got there. So, Leonardo DiCaprio has his business team (Joseph Gordon – Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy) and their job is to fight through the cover of reality and dream, reality within a dream. For the movie viewer, it’s a “time struggle”, because we are never quite sure what the correlation between real-time and dream time is. One of the main stars in the movie explains that you can never remember the begging of a dream and how it got at the moment your consciousness realizes some action is happening, and that dreams that seem to last for hours may actually last for a few minutes. Also, when you’re dreaming you’re never quite sure if it’s a dream because it feels like reality.

Leonardo DiCaprio is hired by the powerful billionaire (Ken Watanabe) to plant an idea into his rival’s mind (Cillian Murphy), and he needs do to it so well that Murphy believes it is his own. And it’s impossible, it has never been done before. So, DiCaprio gathers his team of skilled and talented people who are going to try to plant an idea. So, let’s talk a little bit about this team of skilled and talented people, and their roles. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Arthur) is DiCaprio’s longtime associate, his “right hand” in missions and also his friend. Tom Hardy (Eames) is a master at deception. And last to join the team was Ellen Page (Ariadne), a smart young architect who is a prodigy at creating space. The mission is to create a dream within a dream within a dream and plant an idea in Murphy’s mind, entirely different and far more dangerous procedure that can leave them trapped in their victim mind. And because the movie being an action thriller, it’s not really hard to say that things don’t go exactly according to plan. Now, many people complained that the movie is confusing, but this movie requires paying attention, because it’s not predictable.

“Inception is truly a one of a kind experience and amazing accomplishments of Christopher Nolan. Even if the movie is complex he never fails to entertain us, telling an exciting story with great characters we care about, even if they are the bad guys.”

Ben Burtt – Sound Designer Behind WALL-E (2008)

Every sound designer is asked to create some sort of a world in sounds. And it’s most inspiring when the whole movie requires an original new world of sound – WALL-E

Ben Burtt is an Academy Award-winning sound designer who did his very first work on first Star Wars movies, and in many ways, he’s considered “a father” of modern sound design. He was born on 12 July 1948 in Jamesville, New York. Graduated in 1975 from the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts with a Master of Fine Arts degree in film production. He created a whole new world in animated movie WALL-E, from the background sounds and ambiances, the wind, the storm, mechanical sounds of motors, robot arms and legs, the sound of a space-ship, to new imaginary language. It’s really hard to make up an original sound voice, especially for the character like WALL-E, because he doesn’t talk. Sound designer has to pay attention to emotion that needs to be emphasized, and it’s the hardest part in filmmaking because the film can easily lose it sense, it can be misunderstood. WALL-E doesn’t talk in languages we know. Even if he doesn’t talk much in his imaginary robotic language, he uses different sounds like squeaks, pitched sounds, etc. It took nine months for Ben Burtt to create sounds for this movie.

It’s really hard to make up an original sound voice, especially for the character like WALL-E, because he doesn’t talk. Sound designer has to pay attention to emotion that needs to be emphasized, and it’s the hardest part in filmmaking because the film can easily lose it sense, it can be misunderstood. WALL-E doesn’t talk in languages we know. Even if he doesn’t talk much in his imaginary robotic language, he uses different sounds like squeaks, pitched sounds, etc. It took nine months for Ben Burtt to create sounds for WALL-E. Out of improvisations of taking sounds from both the real world and some synthesization, he will fascinate you on what you hear in the movie.

There are around 2600 sound files made for WALL-E, which is a lot. More then he made for any other move. A Star Wars movie, which is huge, usually has around 1000 new sounds. For Ben, this was gigantic, partly because WALL-E needed so much detail in the sound. WALL-E does lots of movements in the film; lots of driving this way, driving that way. They put the sound with everything and convince the audience that this character really exists; this illusion. Obviously, nothing is recorded while you’re making the movie, everything’s added later. “You learn, as a sound designer, that the most important thing is to make the right choice with the right sound in the right moment in a film. The end result is a product which involves thousands, maybe tens of thousands of decisions, and certainly thousands of sounds.  And all this sounds end up in the world of WALL-E.”


If you are wondering what the story is about I recommend that you watch the movie, and here’s a brief introduction (no spoiler alert): 700 years in the future, the world is turned into an uninhabitable garbage dump. Humans are long lost cruising in the galaxies. Back on Earth, there are two signs of life: one is a cockroach, of course. And the other is WALL-E. WALL-E spends his days collecting, compacting and stacking cubes of junk. Then out of the sky comes another, but different robot – EVE. She is in search of planet life, which signifies that it’s time for humans to leave the stars and reclaim their badly abused planet. So that is how the story begins, I recommend this movie to all ages. WALL-E was directed and co-written by Andrew Stanton, who was the big star behind the biggest Pixar film today Finding Nemo.

Shaquille O’Neal producing a movie

When we first heard about it, it seemed like a strange couple: Famous gallerist Larry Gagosian sings a contract to produce a documentary movie about a local basketball team, choosing the legendary NBA L.A. Lakers center Shaquille O’Neal for a partner. If you think that this is some kind of random collaboration, you’re wrong. This film, called Killer Bees, is a story of the Bridgehampton School basketball team in their mission to defend the 2015 state championship title.

Regarding to the official movie synopsis, this documentary takes us beyond the court and “explores how Bridgehampton’s African American community came to exist in the heart of the Hamptons and its struggle to survive.” The true story is in slight contrast to the public’s opinion on Long Island’s East End as a summer playground that serves only for rich and powerful. The place where collectors and artists come together to party and to move from the city’s huge heat. So, the support of the film by members of the art world seems pretty natural, in all that odd tension.

The art collector Glenn Fuhrman and the film’s executive producer, told the following to the media: “I’ve driven past the Bridgehampton School millions times and never really appreciated what the student body was about or any of the history.” He heard about the project from filmmaker Orson Cummings, who has already written and directed the movie with Ben Cummings. He said: “It just sounded like a story that was really worth telling.” The new member of the NBA’s Hall of Fame, Shaquille has interest in basketball focused story, which is not surprising. But this time, it was his art world connections that made him involved in this project at the first place.

Shaquille O’Neal has already worked closely with Fuhrman, helping him to curate two exhibitions for Fuhrman’s FLAG Art Foundation in Chelsea: “Size DOES Matter” in 2010 and “SHAQ LOVES PEOPLE” in 2014. Fuhrman says: “It was a kind of an obvious call to see if Shaquille wanted to help us get the film made. Much to his credit, he said yes literally instantly. His breadth of interest is so broad, it’s pretty spectacular…”

Gagosian lives in nearby East Hampton, so he knows Orson very well. The movie’s executive producer, Furhman, encouraged him to sign on as associate producer. Just to add some spice on the whole story, when it comes to the art world intrigue, this high school team took painter Joe Zucker as the assistant coach for the season.

Shaquille Rashaun O’Neal was born March 6, 1972. Through the carrier he carried the nickname “Shaq”. Even if this American professional basketball player retired, he is currently an analyst on the television program Inside the NBA. He’s listed at 7 ft 1 in, 2.16 m, tall and weighing 325 pounds, 147 kg. With that stats he was one of the heaviest players ever to play in the NBA. O’Neal played for six different teams throughout his 19-year NBA career. The biggest impact was certainly his time with Los Angeles Lakers.

Meet the band from Ghostbusters remake

Last week the “Ghostbusters” had its Hollywood premiere, so the expected celebrities and stars of the movie were there to be seen. But what also came to attention were 3 elementary school teachers posing for a close-up, after years and years of having live shows as a punk rock band.

The band “No Small Children” is headed by Nicola Berlinsky and sisters Joanie and Lisa Pimentel. Their version of the original theme song from “Ghostbusters” plays in the closing credits and outtake reel in the new film, starring a female-dominated cast. If you ask yourself how this unknown, do-it-yourself band ended in a Hollywood blockbuster, you should know that it all started with Halloween costumes.

Last November, this band dressed as Ghostbusters for a show at holiday party. They had a courage to perform a cover of Ray Parker Jr.’s track from this 1984 blockbuster. After a while, they sent that material to the composer of the score on the “Ghostbusters” remake, Theodore Shapiro. They already had a sort of connection, because the three of them teach in a school San Fernando Valley elementary, where Shapiro’s son is a student. A music teacher and band’s singer and guitarist, Lisa said: “We did this all the time, always just throwing out these little things into the universe. You never know what’s going to catch.”

By the time Shapiro received their song, he’s already chosen the track for the movie. But several months later, the band “No Small Children” received totally different news. Singer, bassist and also a music teacher, Joanie said: “It got snuck in super last minute, and the music editor [Erica Weiss] told us they don’t just love the song — they love our story. From the very beginning, it felt like they were rooting for us.” This song will be available digitally even though it’s not on the official soundtrack of “Ghostbusters”.

Erica Weiss said: “The No Small Children cover of ‘Ghostbusters’ is super fun and has a great energy to it, just like the members of this band. We were thrilled to find a place for it in the film, and I’m personally happy to now know their music.” Director Paul Feig said: “These awesome musicians completely sum up the spirit of our movie — smart, talented, subversive women kicking ass and taking names.”

The drummer and fourth grade teacher, Nicola said: “We have been totally DIY. We each play to our strengths, and we have been hustling.” One Friday, during a midday break, solo musicians Lisa and Nicola came up with the idea of making a band. Lisa said: “Nicola and I don’t have children and we were feeling kind of sad about it. In that sadness, we thought, ‘Let’s start a band and call it No Small Children.’ From there we started writing.” She added: “It seems like successful people that I know just say yes to every opportunity. So we said yes to every gig, everything. It’s exhausting, but it really helped us.”

“We’re in front of an audience, so to speak, all day. We have no shame in getting a room warmed up and lively. We started equating teaching to playing a gig, which is putting yourself in a place where you’re open and learning all the time,” added the drummer Nicola.

Best movie posters – Part 3

Today, we continue with our list of the most famous and influent movie posters ever made.

Casablanka (1942)

Even though the original is simply the best, it was famously riffed on in the poster for The Good German. This black and white simplicity of the film is presented properly, adding a strong color in the title treatment. It can be said that this poster successfully presents the era and looks cool no matter what the actual year is.

The Third Man (1949)

We could say that the border is the most important element of this one. But we won’t forget the elements of the 40’s classic noir neither. It spreads from the striking color scheme to the Vienna backdrop, which grabs attention immediately.  But what a border this poster has!

The Wild Bunch (1969)

These four action shots are the first thing we think about, looking at this one. This short glance explains us precisely what kind of movie we get, a Western which is full of action scenes. The great work of graphic design can be easily recognized in that poetic synopsis and long shadows.

Vanishing Point (1971)

The inevitable detail is that flashy image of a car in the centre of the poster. It really looks like it’s going very fast. But, besides cars driving fast, this movie is also a kind of existential journey which is very suitable for early 70s. It contains that hippy sense of freedom of the road, which can be clearly seen in this poster. The important element would surely be that cheesy tagline.

Badlands (1973)

The debut film of Terrence Malick is an amazing thriller with rather disturbing subject, a couple who go on a killing spree in Dakota. The poster is a attention grabber as well. It has that fairy-tale blurb mixed with a striking photo of the silhouetted pair. The first look immediately says you what sort of film it is. That last line is made like it hits you in the head.

Mean Streets (1973)

What is more striking than the image of a smoking gun? Just the right thing to show the daily life on mob-streets of Little Italy at its best. Mixed with the display of stylised apartment blocks, it gives us the message that the life in this town is very dangerous. It has a crisp and striking, but also a clean design in Scorsese classic style.

Barry Lyndon (1975)

The first film since banned “A Clockwork Orange” of Stanley Kubrick is actually an 18th Century cautionary tale. Following the great artwork, this one had a tough job, but it is still a beautiful movie. As it can be seen on the poster, it won four Oscars. It’s like stripped-down artwork, but elegant enough to do justice to this big screen adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s novel.

Rocketeer (1991)                                                                                                    

Even if the jetpack was invented in 1930s, the helmet surely wouldn’t look as cool as this one. This space style of the rocketeer outfit comes from the creator of the graphic novel that inspired this movie, Dave Stevens. The most fascinating thing about this image is the notion of speed that it has.

Top 30 movie posters – Part 1

People easily forget most movie posters, but there are always some pieces that we remember for a long time. Some of those images even became a part of pop culture. Here’s the first part of our list of best movie posters.

Downhill Racer (1969)

The poster for this movie consists of very cool photography when you first look at it. But when you look couple more times, you start asking yourself some new questions. The intrigue of this one is hidden in that late 1960s look with very simple typography.

A Clockwork Orange (1971)

There are 3 things that take our immediate attention in this movie. Rape, ultra-violence and Beethoven just kick in the atmosphere in this one. Stanley Kubrick’s disturbing masterpiece was displayed with an extremely cool illustration. Those frame triangles and very catchy typography make the perfect mix with the whole image.

The Driver (1978)
Putting the illustration on side, this poster has an amazing typography. It’s a simple movie name, too, which allows the creator to make it looks great much easier. The illustration is done brilliantly in this concept. The two men who look thoughtful, holding a gun, and a beautiful woman that looks so mysterious make a good combination. And finally the car that burst through, making us think that we’ll also see some high-speed action.

Scarface (1983)
This is surely Al Pacino’s best definitive role after The Godfather. The artwork of this one puts his name in big letters in red, to announce the amount of blood in the movie. There’s also that great image of himself, which later became a huge pop culture classic. In pokes our mind so good, that the people never stopped wearing the t-shirts of this masterpiece.

Secretary (2002)

This twisted romantic comedy perfectly displays the image of a tired “sexy-secretary” stereotype. The image can even makes us feel uncomfortable by simply looking at it. The pose that looks so unnatural and the tagline offer us an image of the power struggles, as a basis.

On next saturday, we’ll continue with our list, so everyone who thinks that we maybe forgot something should feel comfortable to write to us with your recommendations.
