You know what they say about opinions: Everybody’s got one! That’s certainly the case with Charles Barkley and his hatin’ on Oklahoma.

Mother's Day

Mama knows be(a)st.


Horror

Rod Lott
Until now, I had never seen the 1980 horror film Mother's Day, but its poster art has stayed top-of-mind when I first stumbled upon the VHS box in the early '80s, when the Sound Warehouse at Northwest Expressway and Rockwell Avenue — may it rest in peace — started renting movies in addition to keepin' the metro rockin' with a wide selection of LPs and cassettes.

Hopper: A Journey into the American Dream — Tom Folsom


Nonfiction

Rod Lott
When Tom Folsom terms his new nonfiction work, Hopper, as “a rebel biography,” he’s not kidding. Not only is his subject a rebel, but so is his approach. A you-are-there POV, fonts that interrupt the narrative — you’ve never read a celebrity bio quite like it, and that’s certainly befitting of its star.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown

‘Son, you got a panty on your head.’


Horror

Rod Lott
While it's not entirely successful, The Town That Dreaded Sundown represents a big step up for Charles B. Pierce, the Arkansas filmmaker who made a cinematic cryptozoological splash in 1972's unlikely hit The Legend of Boggy Creek

Ishtar

Don't believe the hype.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Telling the truth can be dangerous business, but here goes: Time slowly is proving me correct in my long-held assertion that Ishtar is a funny movie. Believe it.

The Eyes of Charles Sand

The 'Eyes' have it. Kind of.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
At the exact moment of his elderly uncle's fatal heart attack in the middle of the night, Charles Sand (Peter Haskell, The Phantom of Hollywood) has a dream of the family member in a coffin. This is Charles' first inclination he has been given the gift of "The Sight." Or is it a curse?
