Welcome to Rod & Reel, the Gazette’s first-ever blog covering film, television and video — all the stuff we can’t fit in print, whether local, national or international.
Those of you who’ve arrived here via a Google search, seeking info and tips on fishing, apologies. (But, hey, have you seen “Okie Noodling”?) —Rod Lott
Those of you awaiting the “Conan the Barbarian” 3-D remake hitting theaters on Aug. 19, satisfy your hunger for swords and sorcery until then with Shout! Factory’s DVD release of “Conan the Adventurer: Season One,” streeting July 26.
It’s two discs of the 1982 cartoon series. I wasn’t even aware there was a cartoon series. We’ll have a review soon. In the meantime, feast on these three clips. —Rod Lott
“The Undefeated,” the documentary charting Sarah Palin’s rise from obscurity to national political player, opens locally today, exclusively at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, 2501 W. Memorial.
Its independent distributor — the doc was not made with Palin’s direct participation — calls it “the year’s most controversial film.” (Wait, doesn’t “Zookeeper” lay claim to that title?) —Rod Lott
