Munn ho!: Third in a series

Not as raved over, but still quite newsworthy


CFN

Gazette staff
Maybe it’s because her new NBC sitcom finally premiered to indifference, but the Interwebs aren’t as obsessed over former Oklahoman turned actress/model/geek icon Olivia Munn as in weeks past.

Munn ho!: Fourth in a series

Infinitely newsworthy.


CFN

Gazette staff
Last week, one of the most burning questions surrounding former Oklahoman turned actress/model/geek icon (and now unwitting Oklahoma Gazette cover girl!) Olivia Munn is one that will have been answered by the time you read this.

Magic Mike

Abracadoldrums!


Drama

Rod Lott
Please believe me when I say that my dislike for Magic Mike has nothing to do with being heterosexual. It has everything to do with mediocre acting and a mess of a script. And I say this as one of the civilized nation’s biggest Steven Soderbergh’s apologists who will defend the goodness of Haywire and Contagion to the point of fisticuffs if we must.

Dredd

Don't ‘Dredd’ this souped-up sci-fi reboot.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Like The Punisher, Judge Dredd serves as judge, jury and executioner, all rolled into one. Like The Punisher, Judge Dredd also received a cinematic reboot in an attempt to right precious filmmakers’ wrongs.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Abracadaverage!


Comedy

Rod Lott
There’s nothing wrong per se with The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. It just desperately lacks the edge you know it had to have at some early stage, but lost somewhere in all the tinkering to tailor it to a widest-possible audience. Enough hints of it remain to make the movie worth a watch — perfectly agreeable, if perfectly forgettable.

Lady in a Cage

Histrionics, bar none.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Unleashed to home video enthusiasts again — this time courtesy of Warner Archive — 1964's Lady in a Cage traps the elderly Cornelia (the legendary Olivia de Havilland, Gone with the Wind) in an elevator. The lift isn't in an office building or department store, but in her own home; the cane-leaning Cornelia's been using it to bypass stairs after breaking her hip.

The Secret of Crickley Hall

Trick or treat? Totally a treat.


Television series

Rod Lott

What is The Secret of Crickley Hall? Well, if I told you, it wouldn't be a secret. The less juvenile answer: It's a superb BBC limited series that'll plunk you in the proper Halloween spirit.

Next big thing

Despite wowing her fair share of crowds, 11-year-old phenom Olivia Kay is balancing the life of a normal kid with that of a rising star.


Music

Joshua Boydston

As far as songs go, few prove as challenging to sing as our national anthem.

It’s a technically demanding tune from first note to last, to be sure, beginning with a low bellow that quickly soars toward star-punching high notes, eventually swelling to a show-stopping crescendo that even the most seasoned performer can have trouble mastering.
