Beat that heat

You know it’s bad when the national weather people are using your state to illustrate just how hot it is out there.


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
So maybe it was not my best idea to spend a July weekend in western Oklahoma, a place known for sand dunes (hot), salt flats (also hot) and rattlesnakes (hot and deadly).

This Is 40

Middle age seems muddle-aged in Judd Apatow's familial comedy.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach
Judd Apatow has given us some hilariously raunchy comedies, but This Is 40 finds the writer-director in his grown-up mode, at least in intent, extracting the funny from the advent of middle age. But his understanding of life in the 40s isn’t necessarily the universal kind.

Manborg

Part man. Part machine. All really funny.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Following its hilarious Father’s Day, the ’80s-obsessed Canadian quintet known as Astron-6 unleashes another inspired homage/parody in Manborg. Instead of vengeance, sci-fi is the skewered genre of choice. And Manborg is indeed choice.

The Howling

Team Jacob?!? Try Team Dante.


Horror

Rod Lott
One of at least four werewolf films to be released in 1981, The Howling remains a distant second to John Landis' An American Werewolf in London, but only because Joe Dante wasn't able to enjoy the competition's deep coffers. Sacrilege alert: I find Dante's to be the better movie.

Don’t call it a comeback, but Garth Brooks might be making a ... comeback.
