The federal Titanic is sinking


Commentary

State Rep. T.W. Shannon
Ninety percent of an iceberg is typically underwater. This fact makes icebergs extremely dangerous, because it takes a keen eye to determine if the ice floating on the surface is a small block that can be pushed aside or several million tons of ice that will sink your ship.

I Am Bruce Lee

They call him Bruce.


Documentary

Rod Lott
I was incorrect in thinking the documentary I Am Bruce Lee wouldn't reveal anything new about the screen's greatest martial artist. While not exactly earth-shattering, the facts I learned numbered many.

Premium Rush

Take the ride.


Action

Rod Lott
Premium Rush is the Joseph Gordon-Levitt movie from 2012 that didn't have him playing a Gotham City rookie, a time-traveling hit man or a POTUS' son. (Damn, was this kid busy!) It's the only one of those four that ended the year without any hint of Oscar buzz, yet I'd argue it's the most purely entertaining.

Making schools safe


Commentary

Todd Lamb
After the tragic events in Newtown, Conn., last December, Senate President Pro Tempore Brian Bingman and House Speaker T.W. Shannon asked me to chair the Oklahoma Commission on School Security (OCSS). As a former U.S. Secret Service special agent, I have a background and training in security. As a state senator, I was the principal author of the Oklahoma School Security Act.

The Iceman

Just chill.


Drama

Rod Lott

By now, playing the nice guy with a dark side must be old hat to Michael Shannon, to the point of typecasting. Think of Take Shelter. Think of HBO's Boardwalk Empire. That's how you'll think of The Iceman.

Hogan’s Fable

An Oklahoma City filmmaker’s feature film debut is set to premiere at this weekend’s Austin Film Festival.


Features

Molly Evans
One cold night in early January 2011, an Oklahoma City-based filmmaker returned from a drink at the bar to housesit his parents’ old, empty abode. But the familiarity of the attic, staircase and the basement door quickly faded when a mass blackout affected the entire neighborhood. Vinnie Hogan has replayed this horrifying scenario since childhood, and he met this dark fate not only with the illumination of his cellphone but also with the idea for his first feature film.
