The Idan Raichel Project at UCLA Live

By Noa, published on Nov 16, 2007

The Idan Raichel Project made its Royce Hall debut in a magnetic, sell-out performance on UCLA’s campus last night. The Project is a blend of Israeli, Ethiopian, South-American, European, and Middle Eastern music, featuring a diverse group of musicians and singers who each have the opportunity to showcase their talents during the panoply of different songs and instrumental pieces. The Project’s album features a variety of guest performers, some of which tour with the band in concert.

Open Water... Can't They Make an Interesting Movie About Sharks?

By Noa, published on Aug 15, 2006

Open Water looked like a promising movie at first. It has sharks in it, and beautiful ocean views, so I thought, "how can you go wrong with this?". Unfortunately, I was mistaken. The movie putters along at an unbearably slow pace, which is probably intentional because it makes you experience the character's trials as realistically as possible. However, it's boring as hell. To my great displeasure, I have noticed this trend creeping up in more and more movies lately. Instead of focusing on the interesting highlights of a certain experience, some movies now drag the viewer through every boring... (more)
