Wanda Jackson — Unfinished Business


Rock

Phil Bacharach
You can’t keep genuine royalty from flaunting their power. Wanda Jackson, the 1950s’ Queen of Rockabilly who set the standard for rock ’n’ roll women and even managed to get Elvis Presley hot and bothered, is back with Unfinished Business.

‘Plan’ on it

RiffTrax offers a second chance to see them eviscerate a shlock sci-fi classic.

Plan one: Any self-respecting fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 should go see the RiffTrax gang do its thing tomorrow night to Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space. Not for nothing has the 1959 sci-fi turkey starring Bela Lugosi and Bela Lugosi’s chiropractor been dubbed the “worst movie ever made.”

The 7:30 p.m. Thursday showing isn’t live, but it was four years ago, and if you didn’t see it then, trust me: It was hilarious.

Or don’t trust me and see it yourself. That’s what I’m urging you to do, anyway, and you may do so at either AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, 2501 W. Memorial, or Tinseltown USA, 6001 N. Martin Luther King.

Hopper: A Journey into the American Dream — Tom Folsom


Nonfiction

Rod Lott
When Tom Folsom terms his new nonfiction work, Hopper, as “a rebel biography,” he’s not kidding. Not only is his subject a rebel, but so is his approach. A you-are-there POV, fonts that interrupt the narrative — you’ve never read a celebrity bio quite like it, and that’s certainly befitting of its star.

Revenge for Jolly!

‘Revenge’ is a dish best ignored.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Your first sign that Revenge for Jolly! may not be for you: the dead dog hanging in the protagonist’s living room.

There are more.

Maniac

And he wants his scalps!


Horror

Rod Lott
Reveling in the seediness that is downtown Los Angeles at night, IFC Films' Maniac is a rare remake that's better than the original. William Lustig's 1980 of the same name long has enjoyed a sizable cult, but I found it to be a thoroughly ugly film in all respects. And I actually like slasher movies!

News

Tim Farley
Mid-Del Public Schools and the state’s Department of Human Services did nothing to help 15-year-old special education student Quinten Wood escape a life of neglect and abuse, a family member charged Tuesday at the state Capitol.
