Drug testing no answer


Letters to the Editor

Kevin Burns
Trust me: I know it feels good to take the stand that we don’t want our welfare dollars going to drug addicts. I still believe that, but I also used to think that universal drug testing to make that stand was the answer.

Meep, meep


CFN

Gazette staff
If we could anthropomorphize pseudoephedrine, a key ingredient in both allergy medicines and methamphetamine, we think it might be the Road Runner in the old Looney Tunes cartoons.

Kill Speed

Higher. Faster. Harder. Dumber.


Action

Rod Lott
I commend you, Kill Speed, for trying to win audience favor, by killing off a drunk Tom Arnold in your opening scene. We don’t see enough junkie’s trailers being blown up these days in such a spectacular fashion. Yet with the level of enjoyment free-falling from there, you quickly prove yourself the year’s worst action movie.

Don't Go in the Woods

Don’t go near the directorial debut of Vincent D’Onofrio.


Horror

Rod Lott
New to DVD, 2010’s Don't Go in the Woods is not to be confused with 1981’s Don't Go in the Woods. That one was a cheap slasher movie; this one is a cheap slasher movie in which characters wonder what John Fogerty and the Donner party have in common, and then sing songs.

Dead alive

And you need not take a road trip or forego showering.

Attention, Grateful Dead fans! Yes, you, with the VW van and the closet full of bootleg tapes!

Just a few hours from now — 7 p.m. to be exact — Jerry Garcia’s would-be 70th birthday will be recognized at two local theaters with a rare screening of the 1977 concert film The Grateful Dead Movie. This one-night-only event will be shown at Cinemark Tinseltown, 6001 N. Martin Luther King, and the Hollywood Spotlight 14, 1100 N. Interstate Drive in Norman.

Being a presentation of Fathom Events, there’s more to it than just the flick of the classic rock band at work. Bob Weir and other surprise guests join for a “special birthday commemoration” for Garcia, who died in 1995.

The Raid: Redemption

If there’s a better action film this year, ‘The Raid’ will kick its ass into nonexistence.


Action

Rod Lott
Fans of pure action cinema are apt to grow delirious with glee over The Raid: Redemption, an Indonesian crime thriller that relies so much upon the universal language of violence, one could enjoy it without subtitles.

Bad traffic

Mexican drug cartels impact OKC.


News

Clifton Adcock
When federal agents raided a horse ranch in Lexington in early June, it wasn’t to take a dime-bag drug dealer off the street. It was to disrupt a money-laundering operation for one of Mexico’s most brutal drug cartels.
