It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage.

Indy's back! After 19 years,the forth Indiana Jones movie is finally going to release this week--Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Here are some positive(and some a bit negative) reviews after the screening in Cannes:
LA Times:'' It was either going to be a worse- or better-than-average Indiana Jones film. It turns out it's one of the better ones and everyone involved can breathe a sigh of relief."
The Times:"Spielberg’s most remarkable achievement is to retain most of the old-fashioned virtues of the original franchise....Harrison Ford, amazingly enough, performs most of his utterly barmy stunts; the actor is in damn good shape for a 65-year-old professor. The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is, quite simply, exquisite nonsense. Welcome back Indy. Lord knows we’ve missed you."
Time Magazine:"Crystal Skull delivers smart, robust, familiar entertainment....Crystal Skull is intended, and works effectively, as instant nostalgia."
Entertainment Weekly:"There's joy and a middle-aged playfulness to the best of Steven Spielberg's unlikely sequel."
Daily Telegraph:" There’s a reason the previous Indy film 1989 was called The Last Crusade. Now it’s really time to entomb this elderly series once and for all."
People: "The stunts are still impressive, the jokes funny and the actors all fit comfortably into their roles and appear to be having a jolly enough time. "
Chicago Tribune:"This time, same old, same old. Would that sequel No. 3 were as stylish as that fedora."

I'm excited just hearing the trademark theme!

You gotta spend some time ,love

Death Cab for Cutie證明了在主流唱片公司還是可以忠於自我. 三年前PlansSoul Meets BodyI Will Follow You Into The Dark跨越了主流與獨立音樂的界線;一位青少女因為看了The OC而愛上主角的愛團Death Cab for Cutie;不斷有人問起Plans當中的某首歌;當你說出Death Cab for Cutie這名稱所獲得的回應不再是疑惑的皺眉,而是熱絡的贊同. 這之後Death Cab for Cutie會怎麼做?歌迷們都是既期待又怕受傷害,不過在新專輯Narrow StairsI Will Possess Your Heart這首歌出現後,我的確放下了心中的擔憂與疑慮. 8分36秒的單曲=不會有電台的撥歌或是音樂頻道疲勞轟炸的放送. 同樣的貝斯線條與鼓的節奏不斷重複,鋼琴不時的挑動心弦,聽者在享受這樣舒適平衡的重疊之餘也暗想著:vocal何時會出現? 終於在歌曲進行到四分多鐘,Ben Gibbard釋放了已經虎視眈眈許久的窺視者,用輕柔又理所當然的口吻(暗地的)說服著對方"How I wish you could see the potential,the potential of you and me... You gotta spend some time with me.And I know that you'll find love.I will possess your heart."這種stalker的行為看來有些變態,但人類都有的淺意識占有慾卻也可以像這首歌,單純又美麗. Narrow Stairs聽來是個較為明亮的專輯,沒有Plans那樣乾淨又整齊的錄音,Narrow Stairs可以感覺到一個樂團的能量在小細節或是小空隙中膨脹,最後充滿了整張專輯的是溫厚且牽動人心的旋律(當然還是保留了Death Cab式詩意的歌詞). 三年等待和沉澱的Narrow Stairs, 它絕對可以陪伴我再等待幾年後的下一張Death Cab.
