A Three Stooges Celebration

Sample the Stooges for not a lot of scratch.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Hopefully, the new-to-DVD Three Stooges movie — which is actually pretty decent, unless you're a humorless mother-nyuk-er — spurs more viewers to try the real thing. For those wanting to sample their black-and-white brand of slapstick with minimal investment, many bargain-DVD collections exist containing only their material that has fallen into the public domain.

We’re three months away from the start of a new NBA season, but you can get a preview of sorts when the Thunder Girls hold their final auditions at 7 p.m. Thursday at Riverwind Casino, 1544 State Highway 9 in Norman. The public is invited to witness just who will be shaking her pompoms while grown men play with balls. Admission is free. Visit thunder.nba.com.

Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory

The truth hurts.


Documentary

Rod Lott
I can't believe — just. cannot. believe. — that Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory lost the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature this past spring. And to a football movie, no less! It's another case of the jocks running ragged over the outcasts, except these outcasts were able to effect something few docs achieve: change.

Shiny Toy Guns — III


Rock

Joshua Boydston
After an uneven presence following 2008’s hard rock-leaning Season of Poison, Shiny Toy Guns is back with its third release, appropriately titled III.

Classic Albums: Peter Gabriel: So

The whole story behind the music, now ‘In Your Eyes.’


Documentary

Rod Lott
Peter Gabriel’s 1986 album, So, found the former Genesis vocalist at his commercial and critical peak. Now, to celebrate its 25th anniversary, it’s not only been reissued in a three-disc box set, but is the subject of the Classic Albums documentary series.

Total Recall

Consider that a divorce.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
I'm not of the opinion that remakes are automatically a bad thing. Without them, we wouldn't have David Cronenberg's The Fly or John Carpenter's The Thing. The difference is that examples like those had a different way of telling the established story.

Eastbound & Down: The Complete Third Season

Major-league laughs at bat.


Television series

Rod Lott
On the basis of Eastbound & Down’s first two seasons, if Kenny Powers were a real person, I’d advise readers to lock up their daughters. After watching the third season, I’d add infants and toddlers to that list.
