The Hunger Games

Not bad — just bland.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
My opinion means absolutely squat on The Hunger Games, a massive hit on a global scale. Even those who didn't see it in theaters will want to out of curiosity's sake, like I did, just to see what all the fuss is about. I completely understand.

Zero Dark Thirty

Controversy doesn’t lessen the impact of one of 2012’s best films.


Thriller

Phil Bacharach
Don’t trust the audience members.

Trusting them appears to be the cardinal sin of Zero Dark Thirty, a masterful, absorbing film dramatizing the CIA's 10-year hunt for Osama bin Laden. It has been at the center of controversy for its depiction of U.S. intelligence agents using “enhanced interrogation techniques,” otherwise known as torture.

The Factory

The ending is a crime.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Can a bad ending ruin an otherwise OK movie? In the case of The Factory, I believe it can.

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.

Paseo visionary

Arts patron and urban developer John Belt leaves behind a lasting legacy with OKC’s historic arts district.


News

Tim Farley
During a Christmas party last year at Paseo Originals Art Gallery, John Belt walked up a flight of steps, looked to the crowd and immediately burst into a booming rendition of “O Holy Night.”

Parker

Stark raving average.


Action

Rod Lott
While it's admirable that Parker is dedicated to the memory of Donald E. Westlake, the legendary crime author who wrote two dozen novels about the character under the Richard Stark pen name, this Parker is not his Parker. It's Taylor Hackford's, and the director continues to apply his nondescript, workmanlike touch to average material (see Love Ranch, Ray, Proof of Life, etc.). He neither improves it nor harms it; he simply keeps it afloat.
