Keeping an industry from fading to black


Commentary

Jill Simpson
The film industry and the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program are good for Oklahoma. In an industry driven by financial incentives, if the state Legislature eliminates the film rebate this session, our growing industry will likely die.

Look who's striking

(Hint: His name rhymes with Kevin Durant.)

Presented almost without comment, it’s the trailer to Kevin Durant’s first film, Kazaam Thunderstruck. The family film starring Oklahoma City’s new favorite son was shot primarily in, um, Baton Rouge, La.?!?

At least the trailer does explain why we didn’t win the national title. Who knew?

To borrow an old joke from SNL’s “Weekend Update” segment, Thunderstruck hits theaters Aug. 24, and home video on Aug. 25. —Rod Lott

Thunderstruck

OKC Thunder star Kevin Durant’s movie debut hurts as much as an NBA Playoffs loss to the Miami Heat.


Comedy

Harrison Lott
Editor’s note: For Thunderstruck, the new family comedy starring the Thunder’s Kevin Durant, it struck us that, since the movie is really aimed at pre-teen and teenaged KD fans, who better to review it than an avowed Thunder fan of that age? Here with his review is guest critic Harrison Lott, a 15-year-old student at Edmond Memorial High School.

Thunder-yuck


CFN

Gazette staff
Thunderstruck boasts more than just the distinction of marking the big-screen debut of OKC Thunder superstar Kevin Durant. The film, an alleged comedy in which the Durantula’s basketball skills are inadvertently swiped by a school kid, might just be the first-ever family-friendly movie to include an appearance by an accused child molester. Granted, there was that John Wayne Gacy cameo in 1974’s Herbie Rides Again, but we’re told you’ve gotta look really fast for that one.

In praise of 'Thunderstruck'


Letters to the Editor

Rosemary Stafford
I wonder if the 15-year-old kid who wrote “Fouled Out” (Film, Harrison Lott, Aug. 29, Oklahoma Gazette) represents most teenagers. It is sad that he couldn’t enjoy a lighthearted movie. Thunderstruck is tops, in my opinion. I sure do hope Kevin Durant doesn’t take to heart what was written.

'Thunderstruck''s strike two


CFN

Gazette staff
Just in time to join lumps of coal in kids’ Christmas stockings, Thunderstruck hits DVD on Dec. 4. The debut movie vehicle for Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant also will be released on Blu-ray, for those cinephiles who wish to best replicate the theatrical experience.

Reel jobs

Proponents of the state’s film rebate program hope to keep the incentive from fading to black.


News

Liz Blood
Supporters of Oklahoma’s film rebate program say the failure of state legislators to extend it this year could be a lethal blow to the film industry unless it’s remedied during next legislative session.
