Curandero: Dawn of the Demon

From dusk till yawn.


Horror

Rod Lott
Eduardo Rodriguez has put three pictures in the can (including the upcoming Fright Night 2) since completing his directorial debut, Curandero: Dawn of the Demon, in 2005. Why, then, has it taken roughly eight years for Curandero to hit DVD? You got me; it’s not as if a lack of quality has stopped any flick before.

Heroic hangover

Local comic book creators launch ‘Knuckleheads,’ a series about an unlikely superhero.


Features

Alyssa Grimley
A comic book shop is more than just a place to buy the latest gotta-have graphic novel. It also can be the start of a creative partnership.

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.

Fast Company / Fast and Loose / Fast and Furious

We detect a book-smart mystery series.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In tacking the word “fast” onto each of these three comedy-minded mysteries, MGM wasn’t joking. Not only are the running times of the films brief, but its lead characters rattle through their dialogue like a teenager to pizza.

Iron Man 3

This metal is still precious.


Action

Rod Lott
You’ll hear the phrase “hot mess” bandied about the whole of Iron Man 3. For a while — the entire first act, really — the film embodies it, minus the hot.

Electra Glide in Blue

The best ’70s cult classic you’ve never heard of.


Drama

Rod Lott
James William Guercio has one of the finest track records in cinema history, because each and every film he directed not only has been great, but became a cult classic. It is titled 1973's Electra Glide in Blue.

Identity Thief

Steals a few more moments than expected.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Hate not Identity Thief, as so many have for its ridiculous, unbelievable, utterly preposterous plot. Accept that it's a big-budget screwball comedy and you may find yourself — gasp! — enjoying it.

Limber Limbs — Limber Limbs


Rock

Joshua Boydston
A new name can be indicative of far more sweeping changes. Such is the case of Limber Limbs.
