It’s all happening at the Zoo


CFN

Gazette staff
You know it’s a bad day as a public body when you ask if there are any attorneys who want to speak and the standing-room-only audience erupts in a lawyerly chorus of, “Yes! I do!” That’s what happened at the Oklahoma City Zoo Trust’s June 20 meeting, as it considered whether to give the contract for operation of the Zoo Amphitheatre to a new company.

New York Stories

One outta three ain’t bad, when that one is Scorsese.


Drama

Rod Lott
I have fond memories of seeing John Ritter in Blake Edwards’ 1989 sex comedy, Skin Deep, in theaters ... because right after it was over, two friends and I snuck into the movie we really wanted to see: another newcomer, New York Stories.

No Mercy

No, but thanks.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Straight out of South Korea, No Mercy shows exactly that. But too bad it's only for the first act.

Shark Week

It bites. Hard.


Thriller

Rod Lott
What do you get when a prosecutor, a police officer, a journalist, an accountant, a judge, a bodyguard, a paramedic and one unemployed junkie skank are drugged, shackled and forced to play a game of survival involving man-eating sharks? The Asylum Home Entertainment's Shark Week, not to be confused with the Discovery Channel programming people look forward to.

Saddle up ... for, oh, about 18 hours.


Western

Anyone who believes public-domain DVD box sets don't contain any good movies, take note: You're dead wrong.

Mother's Day

Mama knows be(a)st.


Horror

Rod Lott
Until now, I had never seen the 1980 horror film Mother's Day, but its poster art has stayed top-of-mind when I first stumbled upon the VHS box in the early '80s, when the Sound Warehouse at Northwest Expressway and Rockwell Avenue — may it rest in peace — started renting movies in addition to keepin' the metro rockin' with a wide selection of LPs and cassettes.

Hostel / Hostel: Part II

Hurt so good.


Horror

Rod Lott
Few critics are unable to see through the violence and admit there's a real artfulness at work in Eli Roth's pair of Hostel films, both now available in their unrated director's cuts on a single, budget-priced Blu-ray from Mill Creek Entertainment.

Halloween II / Halloween III: Season of the Witch / Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers / Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers

Happy Halloween! Times four!


Horror

Rod Lott
Anyone who says the 1978 original is the only good movie in the Halloween franchise is kidding himself. While none of the succeeding chapters may match the power, there's plenty of fun to be had beyond that one night he came home.
