Hell

The future’s so bleak, I gotta wear shades.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Cinema’s current master of disaster, Roland Emmerich (2012), produced but did not write or direct Hell, a post- apocalyptic film smaller in scope than what the man is used to, yet better crafted.

Drive-In

Enjoy the show!


Comedy

Rod Lott
All but dead, the drive-in movie once was at the forefront of entertainment, as American as baseball, apple pie and Chevrolet. I can’t think of a film that bottles that nostalgia better than Drive-In, an obscure comedy worth hunting down.

Moore will be more

Dispatches from the May 20 tornado reveal the character of a community


News

Tim Farley, Louis Fowler, Peter Wright and Phil Bacharach
The afternoon of May 20, on a neighborhood street west of the Moore Medical Center, the Stephens family — Greg, Lynda and 19-year-old daughter Deanna — prepared to take shelter from the tornado. They headed into an underground storm shelter in their backyard, joined by their two dogs and two next-door neighbors.

The Tower

Flame on!


Action

Rod Lott
I have no idea how South Korea was able to get away with not calling The Tower a remake of 1974’s The Towering Inferno. What's important is that it has; this is a terrific disaster epic that marries the gargantuan concepts of the Irwin Allen era with today’s technology.

The free event has risen steadily in popularity, offering a glimpse of our city’s ever-budding arts scene and an opportunity to enjoy a night on the town while supporting local artists.

Sweet charity


Letters to the Editor

Jeannie Yarger
In regard to “Atheists, assemble” in Chicken-Fried News (June 5, Oklahoma Gazette): Charity is not a religious issue. It is a class-warfare issue.
