Invitation to the Dance

The most rare of cinematic sub-genres: the dance anthology


Rod Lott
If all you've seen of Gene Kelly is "Xanadu" and that one "Singin' in the Rain" clip that makes every other Oscar montage, right that wrong.

Join the circus

Show up an hour before showtime to watch an elephant paint a picture, which will be raffled off during intermission.


Rod Lott
Three years have passed since the iconic Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus has come to town, so this week’s circus brings something special: an all-new show.

Water for Elephants

Dung for you.


Rod Lott
What seemed exciting in Sara Gruen's best-selling novel plays flat in the painful "Water for Elephants," a wretchedly written and overwrought drama that leaps to the top of my list of the year's worst films.

Twins of Evil

Double, double, toil and trouble ...


Rod Lott
For me, the more desperate Hammer Film Productions got as audiences’ tastes changed in the early 1970s, the more fun their flicks became. That’s why 1971’s Twins of Evil is now one of my favorites from the legendary British studio, after digging into its Blu-ray debut from Synapse Films.

Olivia Munn vs. Groupon


Gazette staff
You may recall that when, in Genesis, man was given dominion over the animals, it was so that the beasts could helpeth us till the fields and, yay, that they may danceth under lights and weareth little hats for the amusement of Adam and all his descendants.

Nitro Circus: The Movie

Wow! Ouch!


Rod Lott
Granted only a limited theatrical release this summer, Nitro Circus: The Movie is like Jackass with more athleticism, more engineering know-how, more maturity, more corporate sponsors, and much less testicular trauma.
