Zorro: The Complete Series

Television series

Rod Lott
I'm drawn to many adaptations of Mexico's mysterious, masked rider, but Family Channel's early-'90s television series is not one of them.

The Black Sleep

Not essential viewing, but not bad either


Rod Lott
One surefire sign you’re watching something from horror’s golden age of schlock: Lon Chaney Jr. is cast as a guy named Mungo.

The Big Bang

Not-bad thriller needs more zip


Rod Lott
Sienna Guillory, yes. That's my review of "The Big Bang" in three words.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Iron Man vs. Lane Pryce in an average sequel.


Rod Lott
Robert Downey Jr. reprises his other franchise role — the Golden Globe-winning one — as popular culture's arguably most popular detective of all time in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. To shortcut things, whatever you thought of Downey's first go-round in 2009, you're likely to have the same feelings about this 2011 sequel.

Myriad of movies

Grab your blanket and lawn chairs, and spend some quality time with Indiana Jones, Sherlock Holmes and The Edge.

Recently reopened after Project 180 renovations, downtown’s Myriad Botanical Gardens at 301 W. Reno has ushered in its new digs with “Movies Under the Stars.” The weekly Wednesday series began last week with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and Shrek played last night, but several more screenings are scheduled, all free, all beginning at 9 p.m.

For the rest of the summer, expect:
• July 25, Grease
• Aug. 1, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (pictured, duh)
• Aug. 8, West Side Story
• Aug. 15, Never Cry Wolf
• Aug. 22, U2: Rattle and Hum
• Aug. 29, Sherlock Holmes

That’s quite a lineup compared to the usual suspects of such free film series, with U2: Rattle and Hum striking me as a particularly inspired choice. I have fond memories of seeing that music doc three times to a largely empty theater at the long-ago-closed AMC Northwest 8. (Yes, kids, this thing we call “you too” was the Justin Bieber and Katy Perry of my day: They were so big, they had their own picture show!) Suddenly, I have an itch to dig out the soundtrack.

Please note that coolers are permitted, but not open containers of *hic!* alcohol. For more information,  call 297-3995 or visit —Rod Lott
