Beat that heat

You know it’s bad when the national weather people are using your state to illustrate just how hot it is out there.


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
So maybe it was not my best idea to spend a July weekend in western Oklahoma, a place known for sand dunes (hot), salt flats (also hot) and rattlesnakes (hot and deadly).

Chernobyl Diaries

Another reason not to visit Russia, if you needed it.


Horror

Rod Lott
Famously, tragedy plus time equals comedy. Do they also equal horror? Up to you, but Chernobyl Diaries goes for it anyway.

House of Dark Shadows / Night of Dark Shadows

Double up with earlier big-screen 'Shadows.'


Horror

Rod Lott
Those who liked Tim Burton's misunderstood Dark Shadows movie may be curious about exploring the long-running TV soap opera on which it was based. I understand, but instead would point them first in the direction of the 1970 and 1971 feature films, House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows.

Various artists — A Blackwatch Christmas Vol. II


Indie

Joshua Boydston
Fowler Volkswagen general manager Jonathan Fowler wants Oklahoma to become the indie Christmas-music capital of the world. With three straight stellar Christmas albums Fowler VW has supported (all but the first with Norman’s Blackwatch Studios), that wish feels more like reality.

Best in Show

Award-worthy comedy struts onto Blu-ray.


Comedy

Rod Lott
My favorite of Christopher Guest's mockumentaries is easily 2000’s Best in Show. While I think it helps to be a theater nerd to appreciate 1996’s Waiting for Guffman in full or a folk nut to opt for 2003’s A Mighty Wind, “must love dogs” is no requirement here. Love man’s best friend or hate him, the humor in Best in Show is less inside-baseball than its brothers.

Stephen Carradini
Zach Winters’ set of singer/songwriter tunes hinged on the charms of his and other people’s voices.
