Top Ten Movies with... Henk Pretorius


Henk Pretorius is a South African director, writer and producer, who is on the cusp of international acclaim. The Dark Matter Studios founder wanted a place in the film industry and has been striving to make a space for himself, ever since completing his AFDA film school degree. Pretorius describes himself as an "underdog" and a “passionate observer of humanity”.

His breakthrough came with Bakgat!, a popular Afrikaans comedy, which went on to become a trilogy. He moved from Bakgat! to direct Fanie Fourie's Lobola, a heartfelt, funny and distinctly South African romantic comedy, which was well-received by critics and audiences alike.

His latest film, a comedy romance drama called Leading Lady, has generated even more international appeal, once again proving Pretorius has what it takes to go all the way.

While South Africa is already enamored with Pretorius and his "children", we can't wait to see what he and his production company has lined up next. For now, we'll have to be satisfied with getting his Top Ten Movies interview...

"I get goosebumps just thinking of the film...
[on The Shawshank Redemption]

I can't watch movies without...

- My analytical brain switched off. I sometimes wish I could just switch off and enjoy the show, but it's like I am watching a lecture of film-making. Sometimes the lecture is about something that you should aspire to make and sometimes, something you should aspire to never make!

Which famous people share your birthday?

- I had to Google that one and frankly I don’t think any of those people are really famous. I might add that my birthday is two days after Christmas…

What is the first film you remember watching?

- Dirty Dancing and It. Both films I was not allowed to watch. One gave me nightmares and the other one inspired a brief mullet and blow-dried hair. As I said, I was too young to watch these films!

What's the worst movie you've ever seen?

-There are loads of really awful movies, but the one that really takes the cake was a short film I acted in. I can't remember the name, but I was suppose to be killed by a floating CGI knife. The budget died, before the knife could be added, so the film died with my character…

Which movies have made you tearful?

- Every movie that thematically deals with the underdog winning something or figuring something out and is recognised for that, makes me tearful. Even if the film is bad, my eyes will water up at the exact moment when our hero gets his or her recognition. It's obviously something in my psyche, wanting recognition and seeing myself as an underdog, oh how dreadful.

Who is the most famous movie star you've ever met?

- I have never met a really famous movie star, except in the wax museum. I don't really aspire to meet one either. I mean, actors are great and sometimes very brave people, but the star-system is only a marketing strategy that producers in the USA use to sell more movie tickets.

What's your favourite movie line?

- "Get busy living or get busy dying." The line comes from The Shawshank Redemption and I am a massive fan of the movie and the theme of this movie. I get goosebumps just thinking of the film. It pretty much sums up life for me: you are either busy dying or you are living…

Who would you choose to play you in your biopic?

- If they make a biopic of my life, they have really run out of stories. If I am that famous, or rather wealthy, at the time, I would like to play the lead character myself. When I have enough money, I will freeze my brain like Walt Disney and miraculously come back to life and play myself. My inner “self indulgent detector” is going: ENOUGH ALREADY!

If you could produce a movie, what would it be about?

- How our species should stop taking our planet for granted and start controlling our numbers.

Finally, your top ten movies of all-time...

- Shawshank Redemption ...because it sums up life for me.

- Braveheart ...because I am a cliche and “FREEEEEDOM!”.

- Dead Poet's Society ...stand on your desk and shout: “YELP!” and Robin Williams's sad eyes, because he knows, the wiser you get, the more jaded you become…

- A Beautiful Mind ...we are all looking for our original idea, for better or worse, until death do me part.

- American Beauty ...hate the mundane, but what else is there? The beauty of wrinkles on my grandmother's hands. Solid film.

- Good Will Hunting ...again, Robin Williams’s eyes and for the idea that it doesn't matter where you come from, it's where you are going.

- Wedding Crashers ...when in doubt, be forever young and dumb! “M-a-a-a, I need the meatloaf!”

- District 9 ... so proud of Neill Blomkamp. Although I have never met him, I think the world of this film.

- Batman Returns ...I can't stop watching this film. “Do you know where I got my scars?” In the film business…

- Avatar ...I am a massive James Cameron fan. To me, he is The King of Hollywood.

Douglas Place on Ster-Kinekor's Cine Prestige


We had a chance to chat to Ster-Kinekor Marketing Manager, Douglas Place, about Cine Prestige, a business class movie experience, which is being rolled out around the country.

How is Cine Prestige different from a normal movie-going experience?

I think what's important is that if you're going to have a brand promise of "Greatest Moments at their Greatest", you can't have mediocre moments at their cheapest. This is the Ster-Kinekor interpretation of a trend, which is happening worldwide. We piloted the first Cine Prestige in April 2012 in Johannesburg.

What makes it popular and different is this is effectively the business class version of cinema, an elite cinema-going experience  with a dedicated foyer area where you can buy your standard Coke and popcorn if that's what you're after but you also have the opportunity to buy gourmet foods off a specialist menu, which is served to you by waiters either in the film or the foyer. So it's a completely separate pre-film experience and during film experience as well.

Cine Prestige Cavendish

The auditorium is spacious, you don't have the challenge of squeezing past people to get to your seats. It's a far more intimate environment without sacrificing the scale of the cinema experience. It's a state-of-the-art facility so it's got the very best in projection technology, digital audio surround sound, the latest silver screen technology... so really good 2D and 3D presentation. It's the best of the best of the best from an audio-visual point-of-view.

The fully leather reclining armchairs are custom designed only for Ster-Kinekor and we effectively took a manual model in 2012 and made it fully electronic so you can see the display board on your armchair here, which takes you to full reclining mode. We had to measure that carefully to make sure your sight lines aren't obstructed or you're peering over your toes at the screen.

My favourite feature is the 'cool' feature, which keeps your drink cool throughout the film. So when you're coming to watch Peter Jackson's film, The Hobbit or other such 3 hour epics you don't have a lukewarm Coke as the film progresses.

The cinema is already 40% sold out for Friday and Saturday and Capetonians haven't even seen what the film is yet. These cinemas tend to book out way in advance, so they're not the kind of things you buy at box office. You can, but often there aren't seats available, so they tend to be bought online or via the Ster-Kinekor app.

You mentioned the model, is this the second one or are they actually quite a few of these out there?

We opened in The Zone in Rosebank in 2012, we've since opened in Sandton City, Gateway, in Krugersdorp and Cradlestone. When we open new cinemas, we design them with this space in mind because it needs a dedicated kitchen and foyer. It's easier when we have new builds... like Cradlestone and The Grove in Pretoria, which have been easier to do. This is a retro-fitted model for Cavendish, that's why its taken so long to bring this to Cape Town... to work out all the architectural challenges. We didn't want to dilute what the experience is and not have a foyer or as many of these kind of seats as we could possibly have.

Cine Prestige Cavendish

We understand there are more ways of seeing movies than ever before, which are getting more convenient and cheaper. We're in the business of competing with cheap and convenient. This is the best and first place to see a film and that's going to be true for the foreseeable future.

Are there plans to expand this concept throughout the Western Cape?

I'd be very surprised if this didn't take off from what we've seen everywhere from Johannesburg to Durban. I know Capetonians are different and have peculiar tastes, but I don't think this is going to be one of the things that is going to be particularly alienating. We're definitely looking at other sites to do it. The challenge isn't the business model, it's architecture, where do you find the space to do this properly.

Are you targetting any specific movies for Cine Prestige?

We tend to show the major release of the week. I think initially people had assumed this is for an older consumer, a more sophisticated moviegoer and that we'd show more art house or Cinema Nouveau type content here and that hasn't been the case at all. This is for you, even if you're a 16-year-old boy and want to impress a girl on a first date. This will screen The Hunger Games and the Oscar films, so it does tend to mirror the major release houses. We don't oblige people to see it in one format, so when Horrible Bosses 2 opens you can see it in standard 2D next door or you can come see it in Cine Prestige. Thanks to digital projection, we can now date programmes, so we can have The Boxtrolls in the morning and The Hobbit in the evening.

 
Top Ten Movies with... Pippa Tshabalala


Pippa Tshabalala is a tattooed, video gamer geek goddess. Her affinity for video games began at the age of 10. She really started kicking ass and taking names, after she obtained a Masters degree in Fine Arts with a specialisation in Digital Animation at the University of Witwatersrand, where she taught primarily as Digital Animation lecturer between 2006-2009.

It was during this time that she began presenting video game content on PlayR and The Verge, South Africa's first locally produced video game show, which aired on DSTV between 2008-2012.

Nowadays Pippa writes for NAG, South Africa's premier gaming magazine, tech magazine, Techsmart, as well as gaming and tech website, Gearburn. She's currently the On-Air producer for a major broadcaster as well as the Editor of Spliced Magazine, an online pop culture and lifestyle magazine.

In 2013, she was named as one of Mail & Guardian's 200 Young South Africans, which is quite an achievement considering she's tried to avoid getting a "real job" most of her career.

Despite this, she's had an eclectic career with roles as a lecturer, presenter, writer, producer, editor and voice-over artist. We managed to sneak a moment in her busy schedule to get her Top Ten Movies...

"I grew up on Monty Python..."

I can't watch movies without...

- A drink. Not alcoholic necessarily as I'm not a big drinker in general. I’m more partial to soft drinks or juice in this case but I have to have one close at hand, especially if I’m at the movies and not just watching on my couch. Popcorn is a nice-to-have, but a drink is a necessity! I'd much rather be hungry than thirsty.

Which famous people share your birthday?

- My birthday is May 12th. I think the most awesome one is Florence Nightingale, but I also share it with Tony Hawk, Emilio Estevez and Jason Biggs.

What is the first film you remember watching?

- I still have very vivid memories of The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, the former of which I now own on Blu-ray, but I have a distinct memory of watching The Fox and the Hound at a screening in a community centre when I was about four or five.

What's the worst movie you've ever seen?

- A terrible B-Grade... possibly even C or D Grade horror movie called Hanger. It's about a guy whose mother tried to abort him with a coat hanger and he becomes a serial killer. I didn’t manage to get through the entire thing, although my husband did out of morbid curiosity and still reckons he hasn't seen anything else that is quite that bad.

Which movies have made you tearful?

- Oh I cry all the time in movies, so I couldn't narrow it down to one. Now that I'm a parent I tend to cry more easily in movies where parents lose their children as I can't imagine anything worse than something happening to my kids. My husband laughs at me though, I cry at the drop of a hat.

Who is the most famous movie star you've ever met?

- I've met a couple of local people whose work I really like, such as Thapelo Mokoena and Atandwa Kani, but the most famous person I (almost) met was Neil Gaiman. Not exactly a movie star but he's had a lot of books adapted for film so I'm just going to count that as the same thing! I was in Melbourne visiting my family and I was attending a play by some friends called The Terminativity... it's the Nativity but with the Terminator, it was awesome. As I was waiting for them to come out so we could go have a drink in the bar, I realised Neil Gaiman was standing next to me and I had a mini internal meltdown – I absolutely love him!

I'm not the kind of person who gets starstruck at all but I was so excited and nervous but too scared to go over and say hi. He was also chatting to a couple of my friends because he'd come to see their play, but what was I going to say? “I've read everything you've ever written and I'm a huge fan?” Not stalkerish AT ALL! So eventually I leave and while I'm walking back to the train with my husband, I tweeted something about the fact that I was standing next to him and was too scared to go say hello, and of course I tagged him in it, because now I'm feeling braver, and he responded! What's worse is that he said “Oh you were the girl with the tattoos, you should have come and said hello!”

What's your favourite movie line?

- I’m a big Nightmare Before Christmas fan. I introduced my eldest son to it, and now he shares the obsession, so it’s something we watch regularly in our household and I never get tired of it.

Watching him say “I’m Jack! The Pumpkin King!” with all the inflections, the actions and facial expressions means that this is probably my favourite movie line ever.

Who would you choose to play you in your biopic?

- Haha, I often get told I look like Angelina Jolie, so I suppose that would be the obvious choice, but I really like Scarlett Johansson, so out of personal preference I would probably say her.

If you could produce a movie, what would it be about?

- Gaming, what else? Ok that's probably not the only thing it would be about, but I don't think there are enough movies about video gaming that fall into the mainstream media so that's something I'd like to do.

Finally, your top ten movies of all-time...

- The Nightmare Before Christmas ...of course. I mentioned it already but it remains one of, if not my favourite, movie of all-time. The music, the characters, everything about it is just awesome.

- Guardians of the Galaxy ...so quirky and I love superhero movies in general. I also read a lot of comic books, so I'm always interested to see how they translate into a movie – this is one of the more successful ones.

- Her ...I think this is such a poignant and relevant movie in our current era – people having more intimate relationships with their computers and AI than with actual people. It's sad and amazing and wonderful.

- Pitch Perfect ...yes it's super cheesy and of course predictable but I love it. It's such a feel good movie that you can't help but sing along.

- Beauty & The Beast ...the Disney version. Yeah I know this is also kind of a cheesy one, but I remember watching this as a kid and loving it. I knew all the songs and so many years later when I watch it with my son, I still remember all the words. He's quite keen on it as well, so it helps when I have to watch it over and over again... as you do with 3-year-olds!

- Monty Python's Life of Brian ...I grew up on Monty Python so I love pretty much anything associated with them. I would have said The Meaning of Life, but I figured this was a more traditional movie format, plus I now have Always Look on the Bright Side of Life stuck in my head.

- Wolf Children ...I can't even remember where I saw this movie – I think someone lent it to me, but it's absolutely beautiful. I've always been a fan of anime, although I watch less of it than I used to, and this was the first one I've seen in ages that really stimulated my interest again. It's about a woman that falls in love with a werewolf and has two half werewolf children. Soon after the birth of the second child the father dies and she has to struggle to raise them by herself.

- Spirited Away ... I always struggle to decide which of Hayao Miyazaki's films I love more, and I think this one comes out on top by a very slight margin. It narrowly beats Princess Mononoke and Howl's Moving Castle.

- Black Swan ...I remember seeing this when I was almost full term with my eldest son and being incredibly uncomfortable watching it at the cinema, but loving it all the same! It's disturbing and beautiful at the same time.

- Life of Pi ...although it was a bit controversial in the special effects industry because Rhythm and Hues went under shortly after the film won an Oscar, it is nevertheless one of the most gorgeous films I have ever seen. I actually didn't want to see it, and a friend of mine who worked with National Geographic got us complimentary tickets to see it in 3D. I was absolutely blown away.

Spling was lucky enough to get his Top Ten Movies interview. Listen to the podcast of the interview, or read on, for an insightful, entertaining and funny chat about all things movies with the one and only, Lindsay Williams.

I can't watch movies without...

- I'll tell you what I would rather do, I can't watch movies with is the easier thing to do. I can't watch movies with anyone else, I can't watch movies in a cinema anymore unless it's Monday morning or usually the 9:15 or 9:30 show and I have to sit right next to the fire exit because I'm a claustrophobe and I don't like the idea of a fire gutting the cinema. I cannot sit in as you would call a movie house I would call it a cinema with people masticating popcorn and their phones going off.

I think the cinemas of the future because of what's happening now and buying films online and watching them at home I think that there will be a niche for a cinema club for example, you're still getting the mainstream movies but you have to be a member, you have to be vetted, you can have drinks and the seats will be slightly bigger but if there is anyone stepping out of line they get kicked out of the club that's my vision for the future cinema.

In the old days when I first started going to the cinemas as a kid to there would be because of the that they had to change the reel they would be a half-time break and then the usherette would come round selling cigarettes and choc ices and things like that... very civilised, and you could all go off to the loo and stuff like that, but today it's all a bit cold and soulless I find.

Which famous people share your birthday?

- Galileo, far too brainy for me. I wouldn't go on a walking tour of the Drakensberg with him. Matt Groening - I was watching a Simpsons episode last night and how they've churned out 500-600 episodes and almost hundred percent consistently have a few laughs in them and also some clever stuff here what a genius the Simpsons probably one of the defining moments of cartoon history. Jane Seymour - sort of an English rose, sickly sweet. It wouldn't be the sort of person you sit down and say "goodness me she's good looking", I'd like her to come round for a glass of wine and watch one of her films with me. I think she comes from Bristol or something like that, from the west of England, but no not my favourite. (15 February)

"I'd love to to get Wall Street done by the Coen brothers..."

What is the first film you remember watching?

- The first film I remember watching... my brother took me to see That'll Be the Day with his girlfriend, a film with David Essex who was a pop singer from the 1970s and it had an R-rating... there was a little bit of drugs and a hint of sex... that sort of thing.

I also went to watch The Sting with my mother at Staines Cinema. Staines is famous for Ali G. I suppose my first memory would be Saturday morning pictures at that very same ABC cinema in Staines where kids under the age of 10 would go there you'd queue for about I suppose two and six or something like a shilling you would go and watch cartoons and westerns for 2 or 3 hours. It was a massive part of your week, you would look forward to getting on the bus and going to see Saturday morning pictures as we called it.

What's the worst movie you've ever seen?

- Worst film I've ever seen and I have to say it was a very recent one, it was called Noah. It was the worst film I've ever seen it went on and on and on and it was a sort of a sci-fi biblical epic. Russell Crowe was terrible, the whole thing, I had to watch because it was so bad.

There are also a lot of Owen Wilson films you just can't watch. Midnight in Paris was quite good. The one thing I like about Woody Allen is that not matter what character he has in his films whether it's Scarlett Johansson or Owen Wilson they take over his persona, they all become paranoid and if you close your eyes you think you're watching Woody Allen. The reason I said Owen Wilson is because he's made some shockers recently.

Which movies have made you tearful?

- E.T. stands out, when he says goodbye, when the little boy says goodbye to E.T. and he goes off into the universe, I'm sorry I can't watch it, it's a tearful thing.

There's a film in my top 10, I have to lie down for about 3 or 4 hours afterwards and bathe my temples in eau de cologne and put cucumber on my eyes because they're so swollen from crying... it's called Manon des sources.

Who is the most famous movie star you've ever met?

- I met Claire Danes the other day just outside this studio and she completely ignored me. I asked her for an interview, she looked me up and down like I was chopped liver. I used to work on yachts in the south of France and there was a chap, George Hamilton, an American who has always got a tan and he rented the yacht that I was on, it was like a gin palace and it was at the time $20,000 a week, which is an enormous amount of money. He was quite famous, had a lot of hookers on the boat and really fancied himself.

What's your favourite movie line?

- My favourite movie line is "we've got no food, we got no jobs and our PETS' HEADS ARE FALLING OFF", which is from Dumb & Dumber with Jim Carrey when their budgie had just been whacked by some mafia bloke and he was lying in his cage with no head and they had both lost their jobs and it was just so beautifully delivered and was so bizarre that I still rent that film occasionally and watch it just for that line.

There was Casablanca, which is in my top 10 as well where Humphrey Bogart is talking to the Police Commissioner who asks him "what in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?" and he said "My health, I came to Casablanca for the waters." and he said "The waters, what waters? We're in the desert." and he said "I was misinformed."

Who would you choose to play you in your biopic?

- The tallest, best-looking, most intelligent, vibrant person... they would be required to be quite tall. I would have to ask George Clooney to cut his honeymoon short and have a go at it, I mean I've got the grey hair, I mean I may not have the chiseled looks but the geezer could do a great representation of me.

If you could produce a movie, what would it be about?

- If the Coen brothers could do a film on financial services and rip financial services to shreds I would love to collaborate with them on that short of thing. I'd love to to get Wall Street done by the Coen brothers with Lindsay Williams as an Executive Producer, something like that, would be fantastic. They really could do a number on it... making financial services people look like the twits they are mainly... sometimes.

Finally, your top ten movies of all-time...

- One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest ...Jack Nicholson and a very young Danny DeVito and a couple of other people that have now joined our cinema consciousness. It was absolutely extraordinary: the acting, the direction, the photography, the story, the way that they exposed the treatment of mental illness in the 1960/70s. It's unbelievable, very sad as well right at the end when he was lobotomised.

- The Outlaw Josey Wales ...I've got to have a Western and it's got to be Clint Eastwood. It's either Pale Rider or The Outlaw Josie Wales. All his films are the same, there's someone who is under pressure, there's someone who has been done an injustice and he goes and sorts it out. Pale Rider I like, because the first word in the film was the word 'Lindsay'. It's the only film in the world that has that name in it and secondly, it was the first word. He comes up against those deputies with the long coats and he shoots them all and it's just fantastic, but I think I have to go with The Outlaw Josey Wales just because it was like a spaghetti Western and again he sorts everything out and rides off into the sunset, brilliant.

Goldfinger ...I've got to have a Bond film and Dr. No was fantastic because of Ursula Anders getting out of the sea with that extraordinary bikini and she really was a dish but I think I must go for Goldfinger and another great line "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die." and it still had that '60s charm about it and also some lovely girls... it was just wonderful, beautifully acted, very simple and the whole thing was quite enigmatic.

An American Werewolf in London ...I don't normally like horror or sci-fi but I think An American Werewolf in London because of that scene where he turns into a werewolf the first time in her flat and you can see the spine coming out and it wasn't digitally mastered. This was a proper special effect, one of the top ten special effects ever, and of course the scene in the pub in Yorkshire where they send them out onto the moors and they get savaged by this werewolf.

The Party ...with Peter Sellers set against the 1960s where he accidentally gets invited to a party at a Hollywood studio despite the fact that he had blown up the whole set of the film-maker host, and a whole series of mishaps by Peter Sellers. I can remember that "birdie num-nums" scene and I was watching it the first time I lived in London. I rented this movie as a video in those days I sat down and watched it, I had to turn it off because I was rolling on the floor, my stomach was aching so much when he said "birdie num-nums".

Notting Hill ...Love, Actually or is it Notting Hill? Maybe it's Notting Hill with Julia Roberts. Love, Actually has got so many different stories and threads and it's got Rowan Atkinson in Selfridge's, wrapping up that present for the infidel who was married to Emma Thompson in the film. Brilliant, quite sad, quite funny but I think Notting Hill takes it, lots and lots of charm in there and despite the fact that Hugh Grant is such a fop... some people hate him, I think he's brilliant.

The King's Speech ...I could see nothing wrong with that film, historical, beautifully shot, fantastic actors with Colin Firth, amazing, just a brilliant English film.

Blood Simple ...No Country for Old Men, I like that very much of course Fargo, The Big Lebowski but I want to go back to the roots and Blood Simple that scene where the chap's hand gets stabbed and stuck to the window sill and the pain on his face on the screen and the whole story and the way it was shot. It's very raw, not as sophisticated as the new stuff, but I love Blood Simple.

Jean du Florette/Manon des sources ...this is probably my top film, but it's two films that come from a book called Water of the Hills by a Frenchman, who invented cinema in Europe called Marcel Pagnol. They go together, so I'm going to have to have this as one, Jean du Florette and Manon des sources. Jean du Florette was populated by Gerard Deparidieu, Yves Montand and Daniel Auteuil and it's set in a provincial village and I've spent a lot of my life in Provence. I lived there for a couple of years so it rang true to me and it's about village life, petty jealousies and nastiness... whether your chickpeas are bigger than mine and how many apples you've got in your shed and all that sort of thing, so it's fascinating.

Jean du Florette was followed by Manon des sources without telling too much because you have to go and rent both these films is the saddest moment in cinematographic history and the acting at the end, the last 15 minutes... as I say, you have to lie down or up to 3 hours afterwards. Beautiful French countryside, it's got subtitles and afterwards actually Daniel Auteuil who acts in both of them became obsessed with Marcel Pagnol and he made all his lesser known books because he's French as well and comes from that area and it is a personal topic.

Casablanca ...not because I want to be mainstream, but simply because of Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman and all the bit players, again a perfect film. The King's Speech and this one I think are two perfect films.

Crimes and Misdemeanours ...I have to mention it as my 11th, because of when Mia Farrow rejects Woody Allen for Alan Elder at the end. They show his face, and you know he's quite a lugubrious looking geezer anyways, and his face just drops and you've never seen such a sad face in all your life, brilliant film.
