Grohl on

Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl makes a music documentary, ‘Sound City.’

Dave Grohl’s not just a Foo Fighter. Now he’s a film director.

Sound City, his documentary on the historic L.A. recording studio of the same name, is set to screen locally once and once only: at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Harkins Bricktown Cinemas 16, 150 E. Reno. It’s scheduled for nowhere else in the state.

Fresh from its Jan. 18 premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, the film includes such music heavyweights as Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, Barry Manilow, Pixies’ Frank Black, producer Rick Rubin, Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, John Fogerty, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich and many, many more.

Neighbors

A couple and their infant child spar with a hard-partying fraternity in this hilarious and heartfelt crowd-pleaser.


Comedy

Zach Hale
Is there a more unlikely lead actor than Seth Rogen? Since assuming the forefront in Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up, the burly, curly haired Canadian has shown audiences he’s someone they can not only laugh at but root for, doing so in everything from stoner comedies (Pineapple Express) to, well, more stoner comedies (This Is the End). Based solely on the way the film has been marketed, it would be easy to write off Neighbors as yet another Rogen stoner-com — or worse, frat-com — yet doing so would miss the mark entirely.
