Taddy Porter — Stay Golden


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Stillwater rock outfit Taddy Porter must have been blissfully ignorant of the sophomore slump that’s taken down so many bands before it. Stay Golden not only matches the group’s 2010 self-titled debut, but exceeds it in about every possible way.

Save the Date

I thee watch?


Drama

Rod Lott
Not yet a household name, Jeffrey Brown long has been one of America's greatest young cartoonists, garnering attention and a following by writing and drawing what he knows best: himself. The indie favorite strays from the autobiographical to the fictional in his screenplay debut, Save the Date. It's a solid first try.

Black Rock

This ‘Rock’ is semisolid.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Strangely, Katie Aselton of TV's extraordinarily funny The League is better at crafting thrillers than comedies. Her directorial debut, 2010's The Freebie, was insufferable mumblecore. Black Rock finds her taking a headlong leap into suspense, and while it's so-so, growth is growth.

Welcome to the Punch

Lands a weak ‘Punch.’


Thriller

Rod Lott
Overlook the confounding title of Welcome to the Punch; it's the least of the British film's troubles. And that's too bad, because its rip-roaring opening chase had its hooks in me tight.

Lone Survivor

Peter Berg's Navy SEALs epic reminds us that war is hell while glorifying it, too.


Action

Phil Bacharach
Maybe it really is possible to have your cake and eat it, too. Lone Survivor, a dramatization of a real-life U.S. mission in Afghanistan that went horribly awry, somehow manages to chronicle a massacre of Navy SEALs while simultaneously transforming the experience into a fist-pumping recruitment tool.

Primary school

There’s a lot to learn from last week’s primary races. Sophia and Dunnington advance to a runoff in the Democratic primary, educators rally around a new Republican candidate and minority candidates attempt to break new ground.


News

Ben Felder
Jason Dunnington and Paula Sophia held watch parties at next-door establishments last week in the Plaza District, which was fitting — and convenient for reporters — as the two Democratic candidates would emerge from the House District 88 primary as the top vote-getters in a hotly contested race that will decide the next representative.
