Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXV

For the 25th time, we’ve got Movie Sign!


Television series

Rod Lott
A noticeable difference exists with Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXV from Shout! Factory’s previous sets: This one is comparatively light on extras. However, that’s hardly a knock against it, because the show itself is just too damned good on its own.

Who’s Minding the Mint?

This comedy’s in ‘Mint’ condition.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Who's Minding the Mint? is the kind of comedy they don't make anymore: all-star and mad, mad, mad, madcap. It was released in 1967, which is the year that such old-Hollywood projects were put out to pasture by such edgy fare as The Graduate and Bonnie and Clyde. I'd argue Mint — while pure, cotton-candy fluff compared to those prestige pictures — has aged every bit as well.

Jack the Giant Slayer

Fee-fi-fo-fum, why is this movie so darned ho-hum?


Action

Rod Lott
Among the recent wave of the great and powerful fairy-tale flicks, Jack the Giant Slayer may be the truest to its storybook origins, and ironically, the least to live happily after ever at the box office.

On the Road

Hey, Jack Kerouac, they finally made a movie of your classic novel. Now for the tricky part ...


Drama

Aimee Williams
Walter Salles’ On the Road extends a fragmented blip on the map of American poetry — one that doesn’t necessitate resurrection.

Ishtar

Don't believe the hype.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Telling the truth can be dangerous business, but here goes: Time slowly is proving me correct in my long-held assertion that Ishtar is a funny movie. Believe it.

Debt ceiling? Global warming? (Internet?) Bah!


CFN

Gazette staff
Just kidding on the last one. But Oklahoma’s two U.S. senators are skeptical about a lot of important issues.

Coming home

OKC native Jamie Pettis has traveled far and wide but was drawn back to her home state for her new exhibit.


Visual Arts

Molly Evans
There’s just something magnetic about Oklahoma City, but one natural-born wayfarer and multidisciplinary artist didn’t realize it until she headed west three years ago.
