Rock of Ages

Fire away.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In the opening scene of Rock of Ages, the lead character of Sherrie (Julianna Hough, Footloose) leaves Oklahoma for California, and quite frankly, we're better off without her. Good riddance, girl.

The Sorcerers

Boris Karloff gets hooked on a feeling.


Horror

Rod Lott
Boris Karloff plays one of The Sorcerers in an obscure 1967 thriller from Warner Archive. To be more precise, he’s Dr. Marcus Monserrat, “practitioner of medical hypnosis.” Yet what he and his wife (Catherine Lacey, The Lady Vanishes) really itch to try out is something more sinister.

Zorro

Z marks the spot, occasionally.


Action

Rod Lott
It wasn't too long ago you could find crap copies of 1975's Zorro in the dollar-store DVD bins. For a Blu-ray release, Somerville House has cleaned it all up digitally, improving everything but how dull it sometimes is.

Best in Show

Award-worthy comedy struts onto Blu-ray.


Comedy

Rod Lott
My favorite of Christopher Guest's mockumentaries is easily 2000’s Best in Show. While I think it helps to be a theater nerd to appreciate 1996’s Waiting for Guffman in full or a folk nut to opt for 2003’s A Mighty Wind, “must love dogs” is no requirement here. Love man’s best friend or hate him, the humor in Best in Show is less inside-baseball than its brothers.

RED 2

Better dead than ‘RED.’


Action

Zach Hale
Nobody in their right mind would mistake 2010's RED for high art. The film was a harmless, mildly entertaining caricature of a summer blockbuster that provided a fair amount of laughs and a hefty amount of explosions. Any notion of plot played second fiddle to graphic absurdity, but it at least bumbled about with a little bit of charm and charisma.

Center stage

Vocal proponents of the vividly colored theater vow to save Stage Center with a variety of proposals.


News

Tim Farley
Historic preservationists like Lisa Chronister and Catherine Montgomery don’t give up. Controversy over Stage Center, the former Mummers Theater in downtown Oklahoma City, built in 1970, is a classic example.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

Badder equals better.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Strange as it sounds, come March 2, one of the films that stands a good chance of walking home with an Academy Award is Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. It’s one of three nominees in the category of makeup, but still, the recognition marks real progress for films that open with a senior citizen getting his junk caught in a vending machine.
