Barry dramatic

Gazette staff
As if the movies aren’t predictable enough, the life of legendary University of Oklahoma football coach Barry Switzer is headed to the big screen. (Spoiler alert: He wins! A lot!) Hollywood has a knack for making the act of winning a game feel like cancer was cured, so we expect nothing less than a $20 million opening weekend.

The Phantom of Crestwood

She deserved it. Case closed.


Thriller

Rod Lott
From 1932, the mystery The Phantom of Crestwood may be one of Hollywood’s first gimmick flicks. That doesn’t make it any good, however.

Rounds of boos

From the dawn of cinema to its dreadful dregs, plenty of Halloween treats will keep your eyeballs alert.


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!

Tots entertainment


CFN

Gazette staff
If Terrence Malick’s movies are anything, they’re an absolute pleasure to look at. In such films as Badlands, The Thin Red Line and The Tree of Life, the acclaimed director, who was raised in northern Oklahoma, has demonstrated a gift for extracting beauty from the most unexpected places (i.e. cornfields, combat zones, um ... dinosaurs).

Nice Guys Don’t Work in Hollywood: The Adventures of an Aesthete in the Movie Business — Curtis Harrington

But Harrington did!


Nonfiction

Rod Lott
Curtis Harrington’s autobiography is how I imagine the man to have been: soft-spoken, honest and intelligent. Those wondering, “Who’s Curtis Harrington?” should know that is part of the book’s point. Here was a talented filmmaker who never quite got his due, for reasons that had nothing to do with creativity and everything to do with commerce. Here was an artist who worked in a system that had no interest in art.

Reel jobs

Proponents of the state’s film rebate program hope to keep the incentive from fading to black.


News

Liz Blood
Supporters of Oklahoma’s film rebate program say the failure of state legislators to extend it this year could be a lethal blow to the film industry unless it’s remedied during next legislative session.

Saving Mr. Banks

Making Disney's Mary Poppins was anything but merry, as this winner shows.


Drama

Rod Lott
If there's one thing Hollywood loves more than itself, it's stories about itself. From The Artist to Argo, these films have translated into Tinseltown's ultimate display of self-affection: Oscar gold.

Grumpy old men


CFN

Gazette staff
What do Hollywood actors Walter Matthau, Jack Lemmon and Oklahoma City Ward 8 Councilman Pat Ryan have in common? They’re grumpy old men. At least some people think so.
