Femme Fatales: The Complete Second Season

Refractory period over; ready to go again?


Television series

Rod Lott
Certainly the favorite TV show of pubescent boys nationwide whose parents have no idea what airs on Cinemax after they go to bed, Femme Fatales is an anthology series that puts women on top, both figuratively and literally. The better sex engages in better sex, all while pulling the wool — surgically enhanced and otherwise — over the eyes of stupid men.

The art knight rises

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s the Istvan Gallery’s latest exhibition celebrating comic books!


Visual Arts

Louis Fowler
Hot on the well-pixelated heels of its last exhibition, the video game-themed Art of Bits/Bits of Art, the Istvan Gallery once again finds itself in geeky territory with its latest art show, The Art of the Comic Book. For gallery owner and curator Stephen Kovash, who learned to draw from comic books, it’s a chance to give Oklahoma City a new perspective on what has long been considered low-brow art by outsiders.

The Wolverine / Prisoners

Hugh times two.


Action

Rod Lott
The Wolverine is the X-Men spin-off we should have received four years ago with X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Like the franchise's characters, the first mutation is not necessarily the best; whereas the 2009 version sought to be a comic book, the 2013 error-correcting reboot aims higher: comic book art.

Hercules

Don’t be fooled by its name; Hercules gives a puny effort at best.


Action

Zach Hale

The guys who cast The Rock to play Hercules had it easy. The former professional wrestler turned Schwarzenneger redux — known now simply by his birth name, Dwayne Johnson — has become the face of silver screen masculinity after starring in the last few Fast & Furious installments and G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
