Wish Lists


News

Gazette staff
What do local notables want this holiday season? Well, Oklahoma Gazette asked ’em. And they told us. Imagine that!  We passed along these lists to Mr. Claus to do with as he sees fit. But for now, we’re reading the list — some of it twice, because it’s that good. We talked to everyone from adult film stars to leading conservative politicians to get insight — and a laugh — from our leading locals. Happy holidays! — Jennifer Chancellor

The Wolf of Wall Street

Excess becomes a bit, um, excessive in the new film from Martin Scorsese.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach
After venturing outside his comfort zone in 2011’s family-friendly Hugo, Martin Scorsese returns to his cinematic turf of crooks, creeps and crime in The Wolf of Wall Street.

The Horror Show

No 'Show.'


Horror

Rod Lott
Although the title does not let on, 1989's The Horror Show actually began life as House III, a misbegotten sequel to 1986's hit House. In the end, it doesn't matter, because The Horror Show is every bit as terrible as House II or House IV.

The Snake God


Drama

Rod Lott
I love the Mondo Macabro label, but with its last three releases, it seems to have only one thing on its mind: spelled S-E-X. There was Countess Perverse, then How to Seduce a Virgin and now 1970's The Snake God.

The Wolverine / Prisoners

Hugh times two.


Action

Rod Lott
The Wolverine is the X-Men spin-off we should have received four years ago with X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Like the franchise's characters, the first mutation is not necessarily the best; whereas the 2009 version sought to be a comic book, the 2013 error-correcting reboot aims higher: comic book art.

Cassadaga

Year's worst title, but how's the movie?


Horror

Rod Lott
Cassadaga is better than its terrible title, but still an indie picture that's clearly out of whack. In a good way, it opens with a boy who so wants to be a girl, he employs scissors to achieve that goal. In a bad way, it then largely shoves all that business aside until the third act.

The Best Films of 2013

August: Osage County

Set and shot in Oklahoma, August: Osage County loses its darkly comic teeth on the way to the silver screen. Now, it simply bites.


Drama

Rod Lott
August: Osage County is the worst kind of Oscar bait: unearned. Seemingly hoping to join the race by pedigree alone, the Oklahoma-set family drama is as patently false as a plastic worm concealing the business end of a fishing hook. At a glance, it looks like the real deal, but look closer. See, kids? All for show!

Her

More than just a futuristic love story, Spike Jonze’s Her is a timely, philosophical masterwork.


Drama

Zach Hale
The futuristic Los Angeles depicted in Her is hardly dystopian. Instead of war-torn landscapes and flying robot drones, director Spike Jonze offers Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix, The Master), a lonesome writer in the midst of a divorce, and the soft, affectionate voice of Samantha (Scarlet Johannson, Don Jon), a computer-based operating system with whom he falls in love.

Lone Survivor

Peter Berg's Navy SEALs epic reminds us that war is hell while glorifying it, too.


Action

Phil Bacharach
Maybe it really is possible to have your cake and eat it, too. Lone Survivor, a dramatization of a real-life U.S. mission in Afghanistan that went horribly awry, somehow manages to chronicle a massacre of Navy SEALs while simultaneously transforming the experience into a fist-pumping recruitment tool.
