Parker

Stark raving average.


Action

Rod Lott
While it's admirable that Parker is dedicated to the memory of Donald E. Westlake, the legendary crime author who wrote two dozen novels about the character under the Richard Stark pen name, this Parker is not his Parker. It's Taylor Hackford's, and the director continues to apply his nondescript, workmanlike touch to average material (see Love Ranch, Ray, Proof of Life, etc.). He neither improves it nor harms it; he simply keeps it afloat.

Evil Dead

Major-studio horror doesn’t get much better — or bloodier!


Horror

Rod Lott
From the prologue of Evil Dead, it’s evident this is not your everyday, note-for-note, beat-for-beat horror remake. In fact, it joins that select group of remakes that stand on their own while remaining respectful of their source, i.e. The Fly, The Blob, The Thing (John Carpenter's, mind you) and Dawn of the Dead.

Bowlsey — Sleepy Weather


Indie

Zach Hale
Bowlsey is a fearless bunch. Not fearless in that robotic, armor-clad superhero kind of way, but fearless because its members have nothing to lose, so why not rap over that muffled synth-pop track? Hell, you could even plant it between a couple soulful acoustic ballads. Sure, that’ll work.

Go Limp

Don’t let the name fool you; local punks Limp Wizurds write some seriously strong tunes.


Music

Joshua Boydston

You probably think of the Fred Durst-fronted, rap rock powerhouse Limp Bizkit when you hear the name of Oklahoma City punk outfit Limp Wizurdz.

It’s no accident.
