The Outlaw Brothers

Kickin’!


Action

Rod Lott
In the heyday of DVD, 20th Century Fox brought a lot of contemporary Asian actioners to disc in affordable, collectible editions under the “Hong Kong Legends” banner: Eastern Condors, Magnificent Butchers, Knockabout, In the Line of Duty 4, City Hunter, Naked Killer, My Lucky Stars. Watching The Outlaw Brothers reminded me of those glorious times.

Kill ’Em All

Morrrrrtal combatttttt!


Action

Rod Lott
For the first 10 minutes, I wondered if Kill ’Em All weren’t a movie at all, but a collection of unrelated action vignettes — a bomb hit here, a knife throw there, fists and feet everywhere — as seemingly unrelated characters fight, but hardly speak, with no story given.

Features

Rod Lott
In 1931, Pawnee-born Chester Gould created "Dick Tracy," a comic strip which not only changed the face of the funny papers, but law enforcement as well.

Ball it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Before you acquire the ol' ball and chain, best attend The Ball & Chain, an unconventional wedding show to be held at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Plaza District's PhotoArt Studios and Coin Laundry, 1734 N.W. 16th. Curated by Gibson Events, the event will feature more than 40 local creative vendors. Like a wedding, the B&C includes a ceremony and reception, followed by a dance party. A separate “groom’s lounge” will be available, complete with video games and a signature whiskey cocktail. Tickets are $30. Visit ballandchainok.com.

Dragon

Starring the ever-valuable Yen.


Action

Rod Lott
Ignore the Weinsteins’ needless re-christening of the Hong Kong film Wu Xia as the ever-generic Dragon. The important thing is that director Peter Chan (The Love Letter) has made not only one of the better martial-arts pictures of the new millennium thus far, but one that holds appeal to audiences not attuned to the genre.

This Girl Is Badass

This movie is not.


Action

Rod Lott
In the case of This Girl Is Badass, the young woman in question is bike messenger Jukkalan (Jeeja Yanin, Chocolate). Indeed, she is.

Music

Music always has been in Howard Pollack’s blood — maybe not onstage, but definitely behind the scenes.

New Zoo revue

With new management and upgrades, the iconic Zoo Amphitheatre venue returns to rock.


Music

Louis Fowler
As the bitter battle over management of the Zoo Amphitheatre played out in public last summer, Oklahoma City music fans may have worried whether the outdoor venue at 2011 N.E. 50th would be open for business this summer.
