Hugo

‘Hugo’ is Martin Scorsese’s love letter to the cinema.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Martin Scorsese loves movies. Anyone familiar with the director of “Raging Bull” and “The Departed” knows he worships at the altar of film. It’s not surprising, therefore, that Scorsese would make a love letter to the art form in which he immersed himself from his days as a sickly child growing up on New York’s mean streets.

Musical entity

As their band name suggests, Norman post-rockers Gentle Ghost play aggressive music that’s unsettling, yet far from menacing.

Clarence, the Cross-Eyed Lion

Cute movie, and that’s no ‘Lion.’


Family

Rod Lott
I’m too young to have caught “Daktari” in its three-year run on TV in the late 1960s, but I knew of its existence. What I didn’t know is was based on a movie, the 1965 obscurity “Clarence, the Cross-Eyed Lion,” now available from Warner Archive.

Parade this


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Keep the girls covered, ladies, because while the Norman Mardi Gras Parade indeed has beads, this one’s family-friendly and focused on creativity, not debauchery.

Cinema Verite

Be glad their family isn't yours.


Drama

Rod Lott
In 1971, the all-American, Nixon-loving clan known as the Loud family made history without even trying. They just allowed cameras into their lives for six months, and the result was PBS' An American Family, television's first reality series.

Miss Minoes

Purr-fect family entertainment.


Family

Rod Lott
One of the most enjoyable family films of the moment is actually 11 years old: Miss Minoes, a Dutch fantasy based on a children's book. I haven't read it, but from the looks of it, I'm betting the movie retains much of its whimsy.
