Hot shots

With a box full of liquor and a houseful of friends, a little creativity can make for a night you won’t soon forget — for better or worse.


Food and Drink Features

Charles Martin
Shots are often derided as an immature drink for the unrefined drinker, but a glimpse through any bartending guide reveals a complex world of mixology.

Trance

‘Trainspotting’ engineer Danny Boyle delves back into the world of crime with ‘Trance,’ with less-than-hypnotic results.


Thriller

Rod Lott
After fiddling around with Oscar a couple of times with Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours, director Danny Boyle gets back to doing what he does best: the thriller. However, in Trance, opening today in Oklahoma City, the flashy filmmaker bears a light coat of rust.

John Dies at the End

Far-out fun.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Better than the hit novel on which it’s as faithfully based as budgetary issues allow, John Dies at the End is one of those movies that tries really hard to be a cult movie. In this case, however, the goal has been met; I suspect that, as with most of director Don Coscarelli’s work, from Phantasm and The Beastmaster to Bubba Ho-Tep, we’ll still be discussing this one decades later. That’s not to say it’s without faults.

The Canyons

True to its title, the film is a void.


Drama

Rod Lott
Paul Schrader’s The Canyons opens and closes with a montage of abandoned movie theaters. For this film in particular, that choice strikes one as symbolic in several ways: not only as a comment on the state of the industry, but on the state of The Canyons itself. You’re unlikely to find many 2013 films this empty.

Pop goes the shop

Local sellers cash in on the Christmas spirit by making their wares available at small shops in temporary locations.


News

Malena Lott
Last year, Michael Brown, owner of the Plaza District furniture store RetrOKC, stumbled upon the inaugural Holiday Pop-Up Shops at the Myriad Botanical Gardens and thought it was a cool concept. He will return for its second year, but as a tenant one weekend at the concept’s new location in Midtown.
