New movies 2021: ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ is the dopey blockbuster we need right now

Also worth seeing: Heartfelt ‘Concrete Cowboy,’ gripping ‘Rose Plays Julie’

The blockbuster era returns with “Godzilla vs. Kong” this week, and that battle royal, which is already storming up the international box office charts, tops our new release list. Other standouts include an Idris Elba Netflix movie, a “Promising Young Woman”-like Irish psychological thriller and what could turn out to be one of the best films of 2021.

“Godzilla vs. Kong”: After the upheaval and turmoil we experienced in 2020, it’s somewhat comforting to watch Godzilla and King Kong sink battleships and stomp all over cities. And it is these CGI smackdown scenes when “Godzilla vs. Kong” roars. But then it gets back to the tortured monster myth-building and that’s when “Godzilla vs. Kong” simply gets way too full of itself with a batch of screenwriters trying to pull off a multi-tiered Marvel-like Universe, a scheme that even leads to a journey to the center of the Earth. By then the story has gone so overboard on numerous power struggles and side stories, it feels as strained as Millie Bobby Brown’s performance. But let’s not give the “Stranger Things” actress too a tough time; everyone in this fine cast — Alexander Skarsgard, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry and Julian Dennison (the comic-relief scene stealers) along with Demian Belcher and Kyle Chandler — is but an accessory to the grandiose action pieces, and oh, how do those deliver. Horror director Adam Wingard earns extra points for amping up the atmospherics and keeping us semi-interested even during the dull stretches, but this rematch, the fourth in Legendary Pictures’ MonsterVerse series, needed more fighting and less muddled mythmaking. Details: 2½ stars out of 4; opening March 31 in theaters and on HBO Max.

“Concrete Cowboy”: Director/co-writer Ricky Staub was dubbed by Variety as one of “10 Directors to Watch,” and he shows why here. His first feature is an entertaining, emotionally involving adaptation of Greg Neri’s novel “Ghetto Cowboys. Staub shows grace shifting between the gritty and the sentimental as he invites us into the fascinating world of Philadelphia’s Black urban cowboys, living and training horses on littered streets, much to the dismay of real estate developers. While “Cowboys” takes a traditional story arc, with 15-year-old Cole (Caleb McLaughlin) sent to live with his estranged dad (Idris Elba) by a mom fed up with his juvenile-detention behavior, it’s the unique setting, complicated characters and authentic-feeling situations that make it worthwhile. McLaughlin (“Stranger Things”) demonstrates real acting range and Elba commands the screen whenever he appears, but it’s the real-life North Philadelphia cowboy Jamil “Mil” Prattis, as Paris, a cowboy in a wheelchair who teaches Cole how to clean out stables and how to take command of his life, who gives the film its heart and soul. Details: 3 stars; available April 2 on Netflix.

 

“Rose Plays Julie”: This sophisticated psychological thriller about toxic masculinity strikes with just as much venom as Emerald Fennell’s Oscar-nominated “Promising Young Woman.” The acting is of the master-class variety, with Ann Skelly creating a haunting impression as the determined Rose, a morose veterinary student who takes inappropriate measures to meet her actress birth mother (a shattering Orla Brady) and then her birth dad (Aidan Gillen), a celebrity archaeologist and serial abuser. Directors/writers Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy avoid the obvious in this very dark Irish tale on the duplicitous roles we play in life to hide from who we are and what we’ve done. Details: 3½ stars; available to stream on various platforms.

 

“Tina”: She’s been immortalized in a biopic and a stage musical. So what more could there be to say about rock star Tina Turner, now 81, even after her tell-all book? Quite a bit as Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin’s engrossing documentary reveals. While much of the story is well-known, including the years of emotional and physical abuse she endured at the hands of husband/producer Ike Turner, some of it isn’t. “Tina” comes alive whenever it explores the toll that the public revelations have taken on this survivor of domestic abuse. From electrifying concert performances to intimate footage with her family, a composite of the real Tina Turner starts to form. Details: 3 stars; available now on HBO (check local listings).

“French Exit”: It’s baffling that Michelle Pfeiffer hasn’t won an Oscar. Rarely, if ever, has she given a bad or routine performance. From the trailers, it looked like “French Exit” might be the vehicle to deliver her to the Academy Awards podium. Guess again. Besides a cute black cat that’s integral to the elusive plot, Pfeiffer is the best asset in Azazel Jacobs’ kooky mess. “Exit” strives too hard to be breezy, witty and whimsical as a broke and widowed Manhattan socialite (Pfieffer) ventures to France with her son (Lucas Hedges). It all comes across as disingenuous and insincere, topped (or bottomed) with a laughable seance scene that is awkward and terrible. Pfeiffer is luminous, this film isn’t. Details: 1½ stars; in select theaters April 2.

“Kuessipan”: Director Myriam Verreault does everything so well here it’s hard to believe her tale of friendship and family on a Quebec Innu reservation is her first feature. “Kuessipan” is a beautiful portrait of two female friends, and their committed, brittle and fiery relationship. Mikuan (Sharon Ishpatao Fontaine) is the brainiac of the two and comes from a more stable home. Shannis (Yamie Grégoire) has a troubled home life and goes after the bad boys. Both suffer setbacks, tragedies and triumphs big and small, but Verreault’s empathic approach and the two stars’ powerful, multi-layered performances make this adaptation of Naomi Fontaine’s novel a revelation. It’s one of the best, most genuine films you’ll likely to see this year. Details: 4 stars; screening as part of the Virtual Cinema series at the Roxie Theatre, and the Smith Rafael Film Center, rafaelfilm.cafilm.org.

“Shoplifters of the World”: Recollections of being an ‘80s teen inform director/writer Stephen Kijak’s harmless high school senior year lament, a predictable party film where rebellious kids suddenly become adults. Kijak frames this angst between four friends — some questioning their sexual identities — over the demise of the Smiths new wave band in 1987, an announcement that even leads a righteous youth (Ellar Coltrane)  to storm a Denver radio station and demand the DJ (Joe Manganiello, a standout) play Smiths songs all night. While there’s nothing much new here, “Shoplifters” does have heart and soul, and some killer Smiths songs. Details: 2 stars; available to stream here.

The GX satellite constellation to seven satellites- Inmarsat intends to increase

This year, Inmarsat aims to deploy the sixth-generation geostationary satellite constellation, which will extend the Global Xpress (GX) network as well as introduce additional L-band functionality. The satellite corporation based in the United Kingdom aims to launch two Inmarsat-6 satellites to improve Ka-band (GX) as well as L-band (Fleetbroadband) power.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries will fly the first of the Airbus Defence & Space-built satellites (GX6A) later in the year 2021. SpaceX plans to fly the GX6B spacecraft in 2022. This will be Inmarsat’s most efficient and adaptable mobile communications satellites to date.

Their arrival comes after the effective launch of commercial services via the GX5 satellite on December 10, 2020. ThalesAleniaSpace designed GX5 to provide coverage across Europe as well as the Middle East. Inmarsat’s GX network also comprises four Boeing-built geostationary satellites. In January 2021, the organization marked five years of Ka-band connectivity.

It will continue to invest in satellites outside the Inmarsat-6 devices. Three more GX satellites, as well as GX payloads on the two third-party satellites, will be manufactured, launched, and commission by Inmarsat. Inmarsat expects to deploy two satellites with the GX payloads in the year 2022, powered by Space Norway Heosat. GX10A and 10B would be put in increasingly elliptical orbits to ensure continuous availability for shipping over 65 degrees north latitude.

The payloads, which Northrop designed, would extend Inmarsat’s broadband network into the Arctic, improving coverage along northern ocean routes. This multi-beam, high-throughput capability, according to Inmarsat, would smoothly fit into the current and expected GX network. Inmarsat intends to launch three further Airbus Defence & Space satellites – GX7, GX8, as well as GX9 – in 2023, completing the first software-focused constellation for the global smartphone communications.

Each satellite can provide twice the capability of the current GX network in use (GX1-5). They’ll produce thousands of individual spot beams of varying sizes, bandwidths, and capacities that can be readjusted and repositioned all around the planet at the same time. Inmarsat will react to surges in consumer demand immediately and precisely with these satellites, delivering overlapped power across regional hotspots.

Inmarsat is expanding the GX ground network to completely combine each generation of the GX satellites for commercial operation beginning in 2024 to accommodate these capabilities. The latest GX technologies would be backward compatible with current terminals, enabling shipowners to take advantage of potential infrastructure upgrades without needing to upgrade hardware. On January 21, 2021, Inmarsat reached a record of 10,000 ships utilizing its Ka-band-based Fleet Xpress.

online essential solar vaccine refrigerator training New Dulas Academy brings 2021

Dulas pioneered the concept of solar powered refrigerators in the 1980’s and has remained at the forefront of the industry since then. With projects funded by organisations like the World Health Organisation (WHO) and GAVI (the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation), Dulas supplies its refrigerators to health facilities across the world. Dulas’s products are designed for places where the electricity supply is either intermittent or non-existent. Stringent WHO accreditation procedures ensure their refrigerators offer a secure cold chain, keeping precious vaccines at the correct temperatures to preserve their viability. As a result, many millions of people have received vaccinations who would not otherwise have access to them.

Leading vaccine refrigerator manufacturer Dulas has created an online learning facility, the Dulas Academy, to ensure that essential training that supports their vital products can take place despite the travel restrictions brought about by the global pandemic.

 

An essential element of Dulas’s service is the provision of training for local installers and end-users to ensure that the equipment is set up and operated correctly. Prior to the pandemic this training would have been conducted in the field. COVID-19 travel restrictions, and a desire to reduce climate emissions, provided the drivers to develop the Dulas Academy. Establishing this platform to deliver training over the internet ensures that Dulas refrigerators will continue to be supported without interruption and that essential vaccine distribution is maintained.

Working alongside Zing, an agency experienced in building Learning Management Systems, and with the help of valuable funding from the Welsh Assembly Government, Dulas has created a complete online training programme in the form of videos, slide presentations and downloadable information. Courses are offered to participants according to their level of experience, and cover all aspects of installation, operation, and maintenance of either solar direct drive or mains powered refrigerators. Successful completion of a test at the end of each course earns the student an official certificate.

Catherine McLennan is Dulas’s Account Manager for International Projects and played a leading role in developing the Dulas Academy. She explained: ‘Now more than ever we understand how crucial vaccinations are in protecting us from disease. The more people who are vaccinated globally, the greater the protection for everyone; but vaccines can only work if the cold chain that distributes them is reliable. The best way to do that is to train the people who install and use our equipment, so that they can do their job to the best of their abilities. The Dulas Academy is the perfect means to ensure such essential training continues to be carried out, regardless of the impact of the pandemic.’

Andrew Rowbottom, Senior Renewable Energy Engineer at Dulas has been delivering Dulas training programmes in person across the world for many years. He notes that ‘Just as education here in the UK has gone online to enable learning to continue during the pandemic, so we have taken our training online. The beauty of doing this is that training becomes possible anywhere in the world where an internet connection exists. Many of the countries where our refrigerators operate have enthusiastically adopted mobile internet technology, making access to the Dulas Academy perfectly feasible in even quite remote locations. As well as making it possible to continue training while travel restrictions exist, the Academy also enables us to greatly increase our reach. Now more people than ever can obtain training in the installation and use of our refrigerators, directly from us the manufacturer. This will improve the long term reliability of the equipment, saving vaccines, and saving lives”
