Mad Max Trilogy

From the days when one could root for Mel Gibson.


Action

Rod Lott
Prior to Lethal Weapon, Mel Gibson was best-known as the hero of a postapocalyptic Down Under in 1979’s Mad Max, 1981’s The Road Warrior and 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Blu-rays of each come housed in one of those unnecessary tins via Warner Home Video's new Trilogy set.

Would You Rather

Why, yes, I would!


Horror

Rod Lott
That innocent exchange of tough questions becomes Saw: The Home Game in IFC Midnight’s release of Would You Rather. How I would love to have seen an audience react to this in a theater!

Under the Bed

Warning: May cure insomnia.


Horror

Rod Lott
Because monsters hiding beneath beds is a near-universal fear among children, it seems ripe for a horror movie to explore. Under the Bed does, yet provokes only yawns. That’s because the concept is best-suited for a youthful audience, à la an episode of Goosebumps, rather than an R-rated treatment.

Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie

Mort! Mort! Mort! Mort!


Documentary

Rod Lott
In 1987, The Morton Downey Jr. Show burst out of nowhere — New Jersey, to be precise — and became a near-instant phenomenon, turning its loud-mouthed, chain-smoking host into the titan of trash TV. Less than two years later, ratings plummeted along with Downey's career.

Stuffed in Oklahoma

The freshly made, new menu and management at The Miller Grill in Yukon might be too much — and that’s a delicious problem to have.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Someone with an entrepreneurial spirit might be interested in opening a small motel in the empty storefronts near The Miller Grill in Yukon, because some very happy people are going to be very sleepy.
