‘ReMastered: Massacre at the Stadium’ takes a fascinating look at Victor Jara’s death

Netflix - Remastered: Massacre at the Stadium review

The latest—and best, so far—of Netflix‘s music-centric documentary series, ReMastered: Massacre at the Stadium examines the grisly 1973 death of Chilean folk singer-turned-martyr Victor Jara, as well as the complex circumstances that emerged from the despotic Pinochet regime. Concurrently, the film skillfully reveals the curious and infuriatingly predictable account of Pedro Barrientos Núñez, a former Chilean army official and possible murderer of Jara.

RELEASE DATE: 1/11/2019
DIRECTOR: Bent-Jorgen Perlmutt
STREAMING: Netflix
The latest ‘ReMastered’ compellingly examines the grisly 1973 death of Chilean folk singer-turned-martyr Victor Jara.

As much a humanist totem for change as a performer and writer, Jara represented a crucial function within the Socialist movement, existing at the vanguard of neo-folkloric musicians. The group established the Nueva Canción Chilena (New Chilean Song) movement, which led to upheaval within popular music during the administration of President Salvador Allende.

Jara found himself trapped in the middle of a military coup on Sept. 11, 1973 led by General Augusto Pinochet, whose forces overthrew Allende. The “massacre at the stadium” refers to the herding of Pinochet’s suspected political enemies to Estadio Nacional Julio Martínez Prádanos in Santiago, which the junta government used as a torture and detention center to hold roughly 40,000 people. Here, Jara was tortured and finally executed, his beaten body thrown out on the shantytown street in Santiago as a message.

Director Bent-Jorgen Perlmutt (Havana Motor Club, Invisible Killers) successfully tells the concurrent stories of Jara and Pedro Barrientos Núñez, who was found liable for Jara’s death by a Florida jury in 2016, but still lives free there now. Perlmutt, who’s heavy on the dramatics at certain points, also includes the conditions under which Jara’s death and Barrientos’ freedom were possible. With key interviews, he delves into the United States’ likely involvement in Pinochet’s ascendence, with Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger’s Cold War paranoia leading them to help destabilize the socialist Allende Government.

Massacre at the Stadium also gathers eyewitness accounts of victims, as well as military personnel willing to speak about the events. The interviews add gravity to the psychological and emotional toll on all involved in the torture and murder of real and suspected Chilean leftists.

Some of the film’s strongest moments involve Jara’s widow, Joan, a 90-year-old British-Chilean woman. In present-day interviews and archival footage, she exhibits fortitude, poise, and grace in becoming an activist and carrying on Jara’s memory. Oddly, Barrientos—who, like many war crime offenders, lives free and clear—apparently wanted to take a lie detector test as a condition of his involvement in the documentary.

ReMastered: Massacre at the Stadium ranks as an overwhelming success. With its rich mix of politics, music, and Perlmutt’s effective peering into the human condition, it’s the series’ best offering by far.

6 months, 8 days ago

alabama football

Cancel your plans and hog the remote, this showcase between Heisman trophy winner Kyler Murray and runner-up Tua Tagovailoa has all the makings of a classic. Can Alabama’s dominant season reach its logical conclusion? Can Nick Saban out-scheme a mobile quarterback? Watch the Orange Bowl live stream to see how the Oklahoma Sooners fare against the perennially dominant Crimson Tide.

Orange Bowl

Location: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami
Date: Dec. 29, 8pm ET
Streaming: ESPN

Orange Bowl: How to watch online for free
1) Hulu with Live TV

stream orange bowl 2018 hulu with live tv

Hulu

Cost: $40 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
Hulu devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and iOS and Android devices
Local channels: ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, the CW (check your local availability here)

Hulu with Live TV is a one-stop shop for streaming entertainment. Every subscription comes with free access to Hulu’s deep catalog of on-demand TV shows, 2018 new releases, funny movies, and Hulu original series. That’s in addition to 50-plus channels that include everything you need to stream college bowl games: ESPN and ESPN 2, FS1 and FS2, ABC, Fox, and CBS Sports Network, not to mention SEC Network and Big Ten Network. (Here’s a complete guide to Hulu Live TV channels.)

2) Sling TV

stream orange bowl 2018 sling tv

Sling TV

Cost: $25-$40 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
Sling TV devices: Amazon Fire TVs, Android Fire Stick, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, Xbox One, Google Chromecast, and iOS and Android devices
Local channels: NBC, Fox (check your local availability here.)

On paper, Sling TV is your cheapest bet for streaming the 2018 college bowl games. At just $25 per month, Sling Orange offers a suite of ESPN channels, but FS1 and FS2, local channels, and regional sports networks are frustratingly locked behind Sling Blue, also $25 per month. The good news: You can combine the two (Sling Orange + Blue) for just $40 per month. While Sling TV doesn’t carry ABC or CBS Sports Network, new subscribers are eligible to receive a free HD antenna. If you really want to go all-in, be sure to add the Sling Blue Sports Extra pack. It costs an extra $10 per month but gets you Pac-12 Network, NFL RedZone, and specialty channels like NBA TV, beIN Sports, and NHL Network. (Here’s a complete guide to Sling TV channels.)

3) YouTube TV

stream orange bowl 2018 youtube tv

YouTube TV

Cost: $40 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
Devices: Google Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, Xbox One, iOS and Android devices
Local channels: NBC, CBS, Fox, ABC, the CW (enter your ZIP code here to check your availability)

YouTube TV offers a comprehensive streaming package for sports fans that’s close to what you’ll find on Hulu with Live TV. One notable difference in YouTube’s favor is the addition of specialty channels like NBA TV and MLB Network. But it’s unlimited cloud DVR and the ability to split each account with six other people that makes YouTube TV worth considering. (You can find the full list of YouTube TV channels here.)

4) DirecTV Now

stream orange bowl 2018 directv now

DirecTV

Cost: $40-$75 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
Devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and Amazon Fire Stick
Local channels: ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, the CW (enter your zip code here to check local availability)

If you want to go big, you want DirecTV Now. In fact, one of DirecTV Now’s five channel packages is actually called Go Big, and it’s no joke. The service tops out at more than 125 channels, including everything you need to stream college football bowl games (and a whole lot more you don’t). If you happen to be an AT&T Unlimited customer, you’ll save $25 per month on whichever package you choose. (You can view the full DirecTV Now channels list here.)

5) PlayStation Vue

stream orange bowl 2018 playstation vue

Playstation

Cost: $44.99-$79.99 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
Devices: PlayStation 3 and 4, Roku, Amazon Fire, Google Chromecast, Kodi, iOS and Android devices
Local channels: NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS (enter your ZIP code here to check your availability)

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a PlayStation to use PlayStation Vue. The streaming service works with Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast, and even Kodi. It’s a tad more expensive than other options, but it offers four different tiers of channels that provide plenty of variety. (Here are all of PlayStation Vue channels.)

Cotton Bowl: Why it matters

Tagovailoa has the Crimson Tide playing open, aerial offensive ball. The kind that can score 50 on a Saturday and break open games. This isn’t your older sister’s Bama that would find 21-17 results in Death Valley.

Tagovailoa’s Alabama will need every touchdown on Saturday.

It’s the year of the Big 12 breakout: From Texas Tech young gun Pat Mahomes leading the MVP race in the NFL to No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield using his accuracy to dice up cover 2 looks in an era where stripped-down schemes, space, angles, and timing can eat any defense alive. Enter Big 12 champ Murray, a devastating, dual-threat QB1.  

The Crimson Tide under Saban struggles with wide-open gunslingers who can run: from that opening Colt McCoy TD drive in the 2010 national championship to Johnny Manziel, Trevor Knight, Dak Prescott, Cardale Jones, and Deshaun Watson. Murray will prove to be Saban’s biggest challenge yet because he’s simply the fastest and most accurate signal-caller that Saban has ever prepared for.

Even if you’ve cut the cord, you can still stream NFL games today, and you’ll definitely want to be keeping an eye on NFL RedZone. And with two big games on NFL Network on Saturday, you’ll want to make sure you have all of your bases covered.

FuboTV specifically caters to sports fans, as you’ll note by the abundance of sports channels in its basic lineup, which includes regional sports networks, Big Ten Network, BeIn Sports, and FS1 and FS2.

The major asterisk to FuboTV is that it doesn’t include ESPN, but you’ll get free three-day replay for games and 30 hours of cloud DVR storage. (Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.)

2) Hulu with Live TV

Celebrity Parenting Advice is Meaningless

7 months, 26 days ago

Taking celebrity advice is idiotic. Taking celebrity parenting advice is even worse.

I’m not gonna tell anyone to “shut up and dribble” or to stick to rapping, no matter how ridiculous their comments might be. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and if we’re gonna get mad that a famous person uses their platform to spout theirs, then maybe we shouldn’t have made that person famous to begin with. The fact is, getting parenting advice from almost anyone – other parents, your parents, non-parents, coworkers, that close-minded anti-Trumper with a dad blog – is one of the small tortures of this lifestyle.

But there’s something worse about celebrity parenting advice.

vaccinate, anti-vax, jenny mccarthy, herd immunity, parenthood, risk, parenting, mike julianellle, dad and buried, dad blogger, mommy blogger, health, autismThere are two things worse about celebrity parenting advice, actually: its ubiquity and its irrelevance.

Because these people are famous, whether through talent or looks or happenstance, they have access to more people than most, whether those people actively grant it to them or not. I couldn’t care less about reality stars or television chefs or the royal family or the guy that holds P. Diddy’s umbrella, and yet because they’ve been granted fame, and because so many people do inexplicably care about them, their messages are amplified and spread into every nook and cranny. You’d have to live completely off the grid to avoid much of this stuff, and that’s not a luxury many of us can afford these days.

At the same time, their lifestyles are so far afield from what most of us experience, they way they live and the way they parent – no matter how often they go to Starbucks or take their kids to the park and struggle with the car seat – has no bearing on our lives at all.

But that doesn’t mean you have to like it.

Sometimes a celebrity talks out of school about something on which they have no expertise; think Robert DeNiro or Jenny McCarthy on vaccinations. Sometimes it’s celebrities crowing about work-life balance when they live a lavish lifestyle full of nannies and personal trainers and personal chefs; see Gwyneth Paltrow or Angelina Jolie. And then there are the ones everybody actually likes, who seem like regular people who got lucky, like Chrissy Teigan or Kristen Bell or Ryan Reynolds. They make jokes and they complain about the same stuff and they’re down-to-earth and they’re just like us!

And then – maybe because the media lionizes them through no fault of their own, or maybe because they, like most of us, occasionally forget themselves on social media, and maybe because when you have people recording everything you say, you’re bound to make a misstep or two – they are presented as having cracked the code with their celebrity parenting advice.

Kristen Bell’s Amazing Parenting Hacks!
Chrissy Teigan’s Perfect Parenting Tactic!
Ways Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are Winning at Parenting!

I like all of those people. In some ways, I envy all of those people. But I don’t care one whit about how they parent their kids, anymore than I care how you parent yours. (And I bet many of them would agree with me.) It’s none of my business, and their lifestyles, no matter how “relatable” their personalities, have almost zero relevance to mine, or, I’m guessing, to yours. I don’t care how they do it. Maybe if they were parenting experts I would care (except there is no such thing), and maybe if I was a rich celebrity juggling movie shoots and dodging paparazzi while my nanny picks my kids up from daycare I’d be more interested. But I doubt it.

I’m not interested in hearing how they’re killing parenting anymore than I’m interested in hearing them get shamed for what they name their kids (or for anything else they do).

parenting, celebrity parenting, dad and buried, parenting, humor, funny, mike julianelle, dad bloggers, mommy bloggers, parenting controversies, judgment The fact that they’re famous doesn’t make them special or better. It just makes them different. If I’m going to take advice from anyone on anything, it’s most likely to be someone with whom I share more than a superficial, practically universal trait. There are parents of every demographic. Listening to a wealthy celebrity’s advice on raising their kids is the same thing as listening to an Alaskan Inuk or a Scientologist from Las Vegas. We may both have kids but that ain’t exactly rare. I’m gonna need more overlap than that before I start enacting your parenting hacks.

Of course, these celebrities are not to blame for any of this. We are.

They set out to be actors or singers or artists, not to be parenting role models. It’s not their fault that we can’t afford or have access to many of the perks their lifestyles provide; they earned it, good for them. And it’s not their fault they have millions of people willing to listen to them expound upon Trump or co-sleeping or screen-time or eating organic or whatever they want to talk about. They “earned” that platform, and I’m sure it’s not all sunshine and lollipops (I don’t think anyone envies Kate Middleton’s obligation to get out of bed and face the press mere hours after giving birth!).

But it’s their prerogative to discuss the things they’re passionate about, and pass along their parenting tips and philosophies to anyone who wants to hear it. Far be it from me to stop them from speaking their minds. God knows I don’t enjoy when other people tell me to shut up.

But we don’t need to assign significance to the things they say, or to agree with them, or even to listen. I sure don’t; I’m too busy raising my kids to bother worrying how anyone else, famous or not, is raising theirs.
