Rounds of boos

Features

Rod Lott
This Halloween season offers no shortage of scares on the silver screen — even beyond Sinister, Paranormal Activity 4 and Atlas Shrugged: Part II!

It’s a TV-on-DVD fall frenzy!

Featuring nine shows about zombies and maids and gigolos and gladiators and government agents and visitors from the grave and ...


Television series

Rod Lott
With the arrival of fall, a whole new crop of television series has debuted. And yet, I can’t say I’ve caught many more than maybe two. See, I’ve been too busy catching up on all these shows on Blu-ray and DVD — shows such as these fine nine ...

Smashed

In an intoxicating performance worthy of awards attention, Mary Elizabeth Winstead gets 'Smashed.'


Drama

Rod Lott
In a short career largely dominated with genre films — from Final Destination 3 to this past summer’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter — Mary Elizabeth Winstead always has exuded a certain something. But nothing that ever suggested the level of performance she delivers in Smashed.

‘Plan’ on it

RiffTrax offers a second chance to see them eviscerate a shlock sci-fi classic.

Plan one: Any self-respecting fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 should go see the RiffTrax gang do its thing tomorrow night to Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space. Not for nothing has the 1959 sci-fi turkey starring Bela Lugosi and Bela Lugosi’s chiropractor been dubbed the “worst movie ever made.”

The 7:30 p.m. Thursday showing isn’t live, but it was four years ago, and if you didn’t see it then, trust me: It was hilarious.

Or don’t trust me and see it yourself. That’s what I’m urging you to do, anyway, and you may do so at either AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, 2501 W. Memorial, or Tinseltown USA, 6001 N. Martin Luther King.

Amour

The Oscar-nominated drama is cold-blooded, yet remarkable.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke isn't the obvious choice for a movie about love at its weightiest and most profound. In previous works like Funny Games, The Piano Teacher, The White Ribbon and Caché, he has crafted cinematic nipple twists that tweak audiences while examining humankind at its cruelest.

Horror

Rod Lott
The Frankenstein Theory is like no other Frankenstein film you've seen: rendered in found footage.

The Company You Keep

Old radicals don't learn new tricks.


Thriller

Phil Bacharach
Baby boomers can be their own worst enemy. The generation that was going to change the world instead settled on thinking the world of themselves. Youthful idealism, aging and compromised idealism, pining for that youthful idealism — nothing fuels anti-boomer sentiment like boomer sentimentality.

Disconnect

Log on for drama.


Drama

Rod Lott
Its technology will be dated hopelessly within a few years, but for now, Disconnect stands as an accurate parable on the dangers of the Internet.

At Any Price

A gifted filmmaker takes a detour with a farmland melodrama.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Ramin Bahrani has directed three extraordinary, independently produced films about characters living on the margins on society. That trio — Man Push Cart (2005), Chop Shop (2007) and Goodbye Solo (2008) — rightly earned him scads of critical acclaim and excitement about his future projects.
