Topic: The

Kung Fu Dunk

It's kung fu and basketball? How could this go wrong?


Action

Rod Lott
Most critics agree “The Green Hornet” has no sting, but that its Kato, Taiwanese pop star Jay Chou, is its greatest redeeming factor. For even more of him in action, local moviegoers have one chance only as the Oklahoma City Museum of Art screens his fifth film, 2008’s “Kung Fu Dunk,” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

A sound shade of Blue

One woman changed the Blue Bonnet’s pattern by adding a new item to the Norman bar’s offerings: live music.


Music

Danny Marroquin
Bartlesville native Laura Birkett is the kind of lady who walks up to an aging, beer-only bar on the edge of Main Street and sees a promising oasis of Natural Light and sound.

The Crimson Petal and the White

Oh, Sugar, Sugar.


Television series

Rod Lott
Four of the finest hours of entertainment this year can be found in The Crimson Petal and the White, an enchanting, seductive BBC miniseries based on Michel Faber’s best-selling novel. Set in London of 1874, in a time of cholera, it is, as co-star Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) states in a bonus interview, “a love story almost entirely bereft of love.”

The Campaign

Enough laughs to make your chad hang.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In any other year but an election year, I’d like to think The Campaign would have been a bigger hit. It's certainly funny; it's also certainly too close to the truth: American politics is a game of money.

Rudyard Kipling's Mark of the Beast

It's no beauty.


Horror

Rod Lott
Rudyard Kipling's Mark of the Beast is unlike any film I’ve ever seen. Before that works you into frenzied anticipation, please note that’s only because it has the most convoluted DVD menu in history.
