Turnpike Troubadours — Goodbye Normal Street


Country

Phil Bacharach
On Goodbye Normal Street, their third full-length album, Turnpike Troubadours serve up a potent brew of country, bluegrass, folk and even Creole (just to kick it up a notch). The quintet from Stillwater produces music that’s straightforward and simple, but hardly simplistic.

Perfect Sense

Love means never having to say ‘you’re sorry’ ... because your partner can’t hear you, anyway.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
If Contagion were exported to Scotland — and injected with a dose of speculative fiction in customs — the result might make Perfect Sense. The film fails only to fit snugly into one genre, being a thriller, a romance and sci-fi, but sci-fi only in the sense that Children of Men and Never Let Me Go were. This is equally brainy, and maybe just a smidge less bleak.

Act of Valor

By sea, by air, by land, with cheese.


Action

Rod Lott
“Based on real acts of valor,” Act of Valor may prove a better Navy recruitment film than action film in the short term. While not the first movie depicting Navy SEALs doing their thing, it's the first movie to do so starring actual, active-duty Navy SEALs. Seriously — for privacy reasons, their names aren't even in the credits.

Racing Dreams

Vroom to grow.


Documentary

Rod Lott
How many pre-teens not only have a idea of what they want to do with their life, but actually already are doing something about it? The answer: At least three, based upon those you'll meet in Racing Dreams, a fun, fast-paced, feature-length documentary about kids competing for the national karting championship as they chase hopeful NASCAR futures.

Mutant Girls Squad

Yes, another story about teen girls with octopus arms.


Action

Rod Lott
If you thought the X-Men series could use schoolgirl uniforms and tools protruding from naughty bits, have the Sushi Typhoon guys got a movie for you! It's called Mutant Girls Squad and, being from Japan, is three times crazier than America would think to make, or have the guts.

The SweetWater — Moonshine


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City rock act The SweetWater works for something wholly unique in its full-length debut, and while it’s a tall order to hone down influences as varied as Queens of the Stone Age, Black Crowes and Alice in Chains, the band does an admirable job of it with Moonshine.
