THE MOVIE REVIEW - BY PAUL MARINO*<br />

BY PAUL MARINO*<br />

DIRECTOR: ALEXANDER PAYNE<br />

So if you're anything like me, the first time you saw The Family Stone, you said to yourself or the people you screened it with<br />

something on the order of, “God, that was fantastic! Finally, a fifth great Christmas movie. I wonder when the next great one<br />

will come out?”.Well, Ladies and Gentlemen, that was 2005. And in the almost 18 years since I first saw Thomas Bezucha's<br />

film, there had yet to be another great one.This all changed on December 13th, and there is now a great Christmas film that<br />

no longer made my top five. If you're wondering what MyTop Five was: (1) It's a Wonderful Life, (2) Miracle on 34th Street, (3)<br />

The Family Stone, (4) Elf, and (5) White Christmas. Other Christmas movies that are very good, in my mind, include The Nightmare<br />

Before<br />

Christmas,<br />

A Christmas Story, Edwin L. Mann's 1938 adaptation of A Christmas Carol, and even National Lampoon's ChristmasVacation, are all<br />

very good, none that I consider great.Then came Alexander Payne's The Holdovers, starring Paul Giamatti and Dominic Sessa.<br />

We'll get to The Holdovers soon but first a few words on Elf, and a bit about Alexander Payne.You may be wondering: “Why Elf?<br />

It's just some goofy comedy withWill Farrell beingWill Farrell. I thought you were a boring, old snob.You're supposed to hate<br />

on Elf.”Well Jon Favreau's film is way more than just a goofy comedy, and for a boring film aficionado like me, its value cannot<br />

be overstated. It contains a minimum of 20 references to other films, directors, works of cinema, etc, including two homages<br />

to my cinematic idol, Stanley Kubrick.Watch it again, without regard to plot or themes, just looking for those references.As<br />

for Payne, he is very much in one way, very Kubrickian.That way, however, is the one knock that most filmies have on Stanley:<br />

The lack of volume. Stanley made just 13 features in his 48 years as a filmmaker, one every 3, 8 months, and 9 days.Alexander<br />

Payne has made 8 feature films in his 28 years thus far as a film maker, one ever 3 and a half years.Also like Stanley, his movies<br />

are routinely great. This holds true for his last 6 movies, starting with About Schmidt in 2002. His best was...and I am<br />

emphasizing was...was 2004's Sideways which also starred Giamatti in one of the best movies of the best year in film this<br />

century. For those of you interested in experiencing Sideways in a different way, in hippie class as we like to call it, as the minibio<br />

at the bottom of my reviews states, my wife and I host Art in the Form of Film atThe Hub on Canal once a month, sponsored<br />

by this publication's advertising restaurants/movie venues, Chase's on the Beach.We'll be screening Sideways there Friday night,<br />

June 21, <strong>2024</strong>.<br />

So, The Holdovers. I'm here to review The Holdovers, right? Never, to my knowledge has a Christmas movie been made about the<br />

impact of the holiday season has on lonely people, those who have no one with whom to celebrate.There are more and more<br />

of them these days due in part to cell phones and the internet, tools originally designed to bring us together, but often do just<br />

the opposite today.We sit on our phones in our own little worlds rather than strike up a conversation with the person right<br />

next to us. It's really quite suction! Loneliness during Christmas is the main theme of<br />

The Holdovers, and while it does have its moments of painful sadness, it's a joyous film. It explores the deepening loneliness in<br />

America today, and takes place during the 1970 Christmas break at a prestigious New England boarding school, Barton<br />

Academy. Paul Hunham (Paul Giamatti) is a classics professor that everyone hates there, students and faculty alike. He's<br />

angered Headmaster Dr.Woodrupp's (Andrew Garman), and gets assigned supervision of the holdovers, students who, for one<br />

reason or another, have to remain at school for the two week break. Initially, there are five holdovers, but that soon becomes<br />

just one, Angus Tully (Dominic Sessa), who hates Paul. Barton's cook, Mary Lamb (Da'Vine Joy Randolph) also stays. Carrie<br />

Preston, who plays Dr.Woodrupp's assistant, Lydia Crane, rounds out the main cast.<br />

The Holdovers is one of the best of a long list of excellent 2023 features. 4 Stars! Giamatti's performance makes me proud to be<br />

the namesake of Mr. Newman, a story for another day. See you next month!<br />

With BlondeTender Tammy Reee<br />

I attended my last Dave Matthews Band concert in July 2019. It was, as it often is for DMB fans, magical. But<br />

after seeing them summer after summer, I decided that this would be my last show for a while. Not that I am<br />

breaking up with them but a sort of fan hiatus, if you will. The rising cost of tickets, hotel rooms, Uber rides,<br />

merch, drinks, and other expenses brought the total cost to over a thousand for the concert weekend.<br />

Flash forward to November 2023. I’m in Key West for a<br />

friend’s 50th birthday and staying at Ocean Key Resort.<br />

To sweeten the trip, there is a DMB cover band playing<br />

at Ocean Key’s Sunset Pier. Little did I know, this was<br />

not your everyday cover band. With the doors to the<br />

balcony open, we sipped on Dreaming Tree wine, got<br />

ready for the night’s festivities, and listened to the band<br />

perform soundcheck. As the first notes flooded my hotel<br />

room, I heard the lead singer’s voice and I got full body goosebumps! HE SOUNDED JUST LIKE DAVE! I grabbed<br />

my phone. Who is this band? It is NOT your ordinary cover band but a tribute band indeed.<br />

The Dave Matthews Tribute Band also goes by an acronym, DMTB. Their website reads, “This 5-piece ensemble<br />

strives to pay homage to their famous counterparts by matching the excitement, energy, intensity, and intimacy<br />

of a DMB show.” I overheard someone say, “Close your eyes, and you will never know it isn’t Dave.” While this is<br />

true, you need your eyes wide open for the total, high energy experience that is the Dave Matthews Tribute Band.<br />

As a Gen Xer, the <strong>Live</strong> at Red Rocks double CD lived in my CD changer’s carousel. It was the backdrop to my<br />

entrance into adulthood. DMTB didn’t disappoint in playing my favorites, older and more recent. When front man<br />

Gary Wilkinson hit the high notes on Pantala Naga Pampa, I got goosebumps again. It was the combination of<br />

Wilkinson’s voice, the band and the way they made the instruments come alive, the beautiful Sunset Pier venue,<br />

and sharing it with great friends. I went live on Facebook a couple of times but then stopped and let the music<br />

take me over. Sometimes, you just have to put down your phone and enjoy the moment. And I did. No need to<br />

spend the energy comparing DMTB to Dave, Boyd, Carter, or Tim. You just have to experience it for yourself. My<br />

birthday friend summed up the show in one word, “transcending.”<br />

Thank you Sunset Pier and MOTE Marine Lab, for introducing me to Dave Matthews Tribute Band. And to the<br />

band, WOW, just WOW. On the DMTB.com you will find playlists from other shows, videos, upcoming events, and<br />

tickets. I plan to purchase tickets to their February show in Sebastian, Florida. It looks like they will be around<br />

$30. I definitely found a new Dave.<br />

Eat, drink, and be merry!<br />
