Jasan Radford of Onesidezero gives it his all.
New me tal Wband

By Andy Schwegler
For the Daily
As of late, the great state of Califor-
nia has been a breeding ground for new
and upcoming rock
bands. Within a
year, countless
ws r bands have broken
mdzro ito mainstream
music, most notably
St. Andrews Hall Papa Roach, the
yt 10,2001 Deftones and
Linkin Park.
Now Onesideze-
ro has their eyes set
1 on a piece of the
rock pie. Having
just recently signed
with Maverick
records and fresh
out of the studio with their amazing new
release Is This Room Getting Smalle;
the band was itching to hit the nation's
kighways to promote their new album.
One of their stops with punk-rock
band Zebrahead was St. Andrews Hall.
A mistake on the venue's part for not
booking a local band made the wait
almost two hours before openers
Onesidezero hit the stage. With anxious
punk rockers en nase, the energy level
of the crowd for Onesidezero was about
as high as a hung over college student in
-degree weather.
This didn't stop the band from pulling
off one of the tightest sets seen at St.
Andrews to date. Lead Singer Jasan
Radford was absolutely perfect for every
song giving an almost Maynard Keenan
experience. Beautiful high and low
melodies, along with mesmerizing

screams engulfing the entire audience as
well as the bowels of the old church.
Since only a few people were even mov-
ing during the first few songs, Radford
jumped into the crowd and joined the
mosh pit, erupting the venue. All this
while the rest of the band was pulling off
complex chords and beats with ease.
The music of Onesidezero has a very
unique sound, almost Tool-esque.
Bassist Cristian Hernandez and drum-
mer Rob Basile created an amazing
combo. Every song had a unique twist
and can go in any direction, making
them a joy to hear time after time, along
with some very catchy hooks that make
it easily marketable for the radio.
If you weren't at the show to experi-
ence the amazing amount of energy this
band puts out, shame on you!

The story, on the
other hand, is not
Final so astonishing.
Fantasy The film begins
Grade: C with the main
at showcase character's dream
and Quality 16 in which Dr. Aki
Ross (voiced by
Ming-Na) is on a
foreign planet sur-
rounded by war-
ring aliens. The
scene changes to
reality, where Aki
is returning to the Earth to save it
because alien "phantoms" have arrived
via meteor, attacking and destroying
much of the planet.
Aki wants to find a plant, one of the
few real life forms left outside of the
barrier cities, and in the process she is
intercepted, then assisted, by the Deep
Eyes military squadron. This plant is a
"spirit wave," of which there are eight;
they will help to cure Aki, who has
been terminally infected with an alien
particle, and save humanity from the
invaders. The Deep Eyes squad con-
sists of Gray Edwards (Alec Baldwin),
Aki's romantic interest, Neil (Steve
Buscemi), Ryan (Ving Rhames), and
Jane (Peri Gilpin). Working with all of

On paper, the plot sounds ambitious
and impressive. In the movie, it is not
nearly as clear. Though it still may be
ambitious, one cannot always tell what
is going on and why. Certain elements
of the plot are taken for granted by the
screenwriters (Al Reinert and JeffVin-
tar), as aspects of the phantom beings
and mechanisms they created are left
unexplained. We know that a Zeus
Cannon exists for destruction, but
what does it do really?
The actual dialogue is often uninter-
esting. Not much insight is given to
the individual characters through their
speech. Comedy is attempted through
the character Neil, but it often falls

With the amazing air aionr, the
faults of the film are dificu: d o see.
Admittedly, the animation ii ihe char-
acters' mouths is done p.rey. The
things they say rarely matc) how their
mouths move. This seems minor in
comparison to nearly any other aspect
of their bodies. The animation team
paid considerable attention to extreme-
ly minute details, especially of the
characters' faces. The phantoms are
also finely done; they range from giant
dragons to dinosaurs to insects.
The action resulting from character
and phantom interaction is engaging,
despite the fact that one can't always
tell why it is happening. Being a fan of
the popular video game series of the
same name won't help much either, as
"Final Fantasy" the movie has little to
do with "Final Fantasy" the game.
