Six years down ... and still killer.


Television series

Rod Lott
Sins and sons — those are the driving themes for the sixth season of Dexter, arguably the anchor of the Showtime cable network. Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall in his Golden Globe-winning role) is a Miami Metro PD forensics analyst who moonlights as a serial killer of serial killers.

The Heineken Kidnapping

'Heineken? F**k that s**t! Pabst! Blue! Ribbon!'


Thriller

Rod Lott
Beer brewing can be a risky business. Consider Alfred Heineken: In 1983, the CEO of the Dutch corporation that bears his name was kidnapped and held for a sizable ransom, all of which is dramatized in the near-epic film The Heineken Kidnapping. It's more engrossing than its generic title lets on.

Area 407

The found-footage film travels to Jurassic Park.


Horror

Rod Lott
Found-footage movies are no longer novel, but they're cheap to make, so expect to see many, many more shoot out Hollywood's pipeline. As long as concepts are tweaked, however, surprises like Chronicle can occur.

Thunderstruck

OKC Thunder star Kevin Durant’s movie debut hurts as much as an NBA Playoffs loss to the Miami Heat.


Comedy

Harrison Lott
Editor’s note: For Thunderstruck, the new family comedy starring the Thunder’s Kevin Durant, it struck us that, since the movie is really aimed at pre-teen and teenaged KD fans, who better to review it than an avowed Thunder fan of that age? Here with his review is guest critic Harrison Lott, a 15-year-old student at Edmond Memorial High School.

Full Metal Jacket: 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Book

More than just the movie that made ‘me so horny’ a household phrase.


Drama

Rod Lott
When Stanley Kubrick’s Vietnam film, Full Metal Jacket, hit theaters in the summer of 1987, I was all of 16 years old. Even I could tell it was far better than Oliver Stone’s Platoon, which by then had won four Academy Awards; by comparison, Jacket would be nominated for one, Best Adapted Screenplay, and lose it to The Last Emperor.

Piranha 3DD

Wetter be good to me.


Horror

Rod Lott
As the junky, jokey follow-up to 2010's Piranha 3D (a remake of the Roger Corman drive-in classic of 1978), Piranha 3DD takes place a year after the prehistoric killer fish laid waste to a popular lake during spring break.

Apartment 143 [Emergo]

This is why landlords require deposits.


Horror

Rod Lott
Cross Paranormal Activity with an "ALL BILLS PAID!" banner, and you have Apartment 143 [Emergo]. That's not to suggest the film is, er, low-rent.

Celeste & Jesse Forever


Comedy

Rod Lott
Any cries of nepotism in the case of Rashida Jones officially can be buried, and the dirt above patted with a shovel for good measure.
