‘Undefeated’ unspooling here

Sarah Palin documentary opens locally

“The Undefeated,” the documentary charting Sarah Palin’s rise from obscurity to national political player, opens locally today, exclusively at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, 2501 W. Memorial.

Its independent distributor — the doc was not made with Palin’s direct participation — calls it “the year’s most controversial film.” (Wait, doesn’t “Zookeeper” lay claim to that title?) —Rod Lott

Turbulent Skies

Casper the friendly actor saves a plane.


Action

Rod Lott
It’s strangely comforting that “Turbulent Skies” hasn’t an original idea in its 87 minutes.

Beginners

Telling the story of a dying widower who announces he’s gay, ‘Beginners’ comes out strong.

Stake Land

Bite into this zombie-vampire hybrid.


Horror

Like the hit "Zombieland" played straight, "Stake Land" follows a grizzled, seen-it-all hunter and his young protégé across a postapocalyptic America riddled with the undead.

We Are What We Are

Taste this Mexican meal concerning the other white meat.


Horror

Rod Lott
Members of the family at the heart of "We Are What We Are" share blood, both literally and figuratively. Because they're cannibals, you see.

I feel like 'Tekken' tonight

And there's a flying panda.

I’ve never played a “Tekken” video game. But I have seen the new, live-action “Tekken” movie, now available on the DVDs and the Blu-rays.

Now there’s another “Tekken” movie, this one is animated, is only showing tonight, won’t hit video until around Thanksgiving, and looks fairly insane. I call your attention to this entry from last Wednesday’s Gazette:

“Is your moviegoing heart lusting for something bloody, vengeance-filled, based on a video game and requiring special glasses? Behold! For one night only, catch the computer-animated, PG-13 actioner “Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Cinemark Tinseltown USA, 6001 N. Martin Luther King. A 20-minute special follows. Tickets are $12-$14. Call 424-0461 or visit fathomevents.com.”

Again, that Tuesday means tonight. I’ll be there, likely complaining of a 3-D-induced headache. —Rod Lott

Shell out

‘MST3K’ unleashes a Gamera-only set.

All together now: “Gamera is really sweet! He is filled with turtle meat!”

Confused? You won’t be come Tuesday, when Shout! Factory releases “Mystery Science Theater 3000, Vol. XXI: MST3K vs. Gamera.” The five-DVD set of Japanese giant-turtle madness comes housed in a limited-edition tin, with five mini-posters. Fans who order direct from Shout! Factory will receive a free Gamera postcard pack and “MST3K” stress ball, so click to squeeze.

Look for the Oklahoma Gazette review soon. Until then, enjoy the official trailer and these choice six clips! —Rod Lott
