The Burning

Third-degree terror.


Horror

Rod Lott
It speaks to the strength of The Burning’s reputation among cult-film fans that what’s most memorable about the 1981 slasher is not that it was written by the Weinstein brothers, nor that it represents early appearances of the likes of Jason Alexander, Holly Hunter and Fisher Stevens. It’s that its Cropsy is just a damned good villain.

Aroused

Porn stars are people, too.


Documentary

Rod Lott
As director Deborah Anderson states at the beginning of her documentary, Aroused is not a story about pornography, but about women. For half of its 69-minute running time (deliberate?), I believed her.

This Girl Is Badass

This movie is not.


Action

Rod Lott
In the case of This Girl Is Badass, the young woman in question is bike messenger Jukkalan (Jeeja Yanin, Chocolate). Indeed, she is.

Love Is All You Need

When brokenhearted, middle-aged people assemble for a wedding in Italy, that’s amore.


Drama

Rod Lott
On paper — or computer screen — Love Is All You Need sounds like an overdose of saccharine. Even swallowing just a few plot keywords could trigger symptoms: “widower,” “wedding” and “breast cancer.”

Snitch

The Rock’s roll continues.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Now that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has had three back-to-back hits this season in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Pain & Gain and, of course, Fast & Furious 6, it's time to catch up with the one film of his this year audiences ignored: Snitch.

Mad Max Trilogy

From the days when one could root for Mel Gibson.


Action

Rod Lott
Prior to Lethal Weapon, Mel Gibson was best-known as the hero of a postapocalyptic Down Under in 1979’s Mad Max, 1981’s The Road Warrior and 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Blu-rays of each come housed in one of those unnecessary tins via Warner Home Video's new Trilogy set.

The Philadelphia Experiment

‘Experiment’ failed.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
There's a theory about remakes that perhaps Hollywood should stop remaking good movies and instead remake the bad ones, so that they may be improved. The problem with that theory is one runs the risk of the remake being bad, too. Case in point: The Philadelphia Experiment.

Jumpship Astronaut — Lights Burn Out


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma has never been the haven for electronic rock music that it is for country, folk and, as of late, psychedelic pop, but from the sound of Lights Burn Out, Oklahoma City upstart Jumpship Astronaut seems intent on changing that.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

... and they kicked ass happily ever after.


Action

Rod Lott
A few surprising things about Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters:
• It comes from MTV Films,
• is produced by Will Ferrell,
• and is as fun as its title is dumb.
