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.

Before Midnight

Make time for the brilliant, moving conclusion to Richard Linklater’s trilogy of tales of Jesse and Celine.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
In Before Midnight, the latest of director Richard Linklater’s odes to romance — a high-minded odyssey begun with Before Sunrise in 1995 and continued with Before Sunset in 2004 — there’s a sly bit that reflects the personal baggage fans of this trilogy bring to the multiplex.

Evil Dead

Major-studio horror doesn’t get much better — or bloodier!


Horror

Rod Lott
From the prologue of Evil Dead, it’s evident this is not your everyday, note-for-note, beat-for-beat horror remake. In fact, it joins that select group of remakes that stand on their own while remaining respectful of their source, i.e. The Fly, The Blob, The Thing (John Carpenter's, mind you) and Dawn of the Dead.

Hatchet III

Ax and ye shall receive.


Horror

Rod Lott
Hatchet III posits that a man whose face has been turned to raw meat can get right back up and walk around as if nothing happened. Then he gets chainsawed into even halves, yet even that fails to faze him.

The Amityville Horror Trilogy

"For God's sake, get it!"


Horror

Rod Lott
Although entries in the Amityville Horror franchise now number 11, the movies stopped playing theaters after the third go-round, with the exception of 2005's needless remake. The first three films were collected on an MGM DVD boxed set to coincide with that remake, but in carrying over those extras and adding many more of its own, Shout! Factory's new package proves more definitive. Plus, it's on Blu-ray.

One-Man Star Wars Trilogy


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

If you were to attempt to condense all three original Star Wars films into a single hour — oh, and perform the role of every character by yourself — you’d probably need something greater than the Force to do it. Charles Ross isn’t a jedi (we don’t think), but he still manages to do all of these things in his One-Man Star Wars Trilogy, 7:30 p.m. Wednesday–Friday and 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday–Sunday at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave. Tickets are $30-$35. Call 297-2264 or visit cityrep.com.

Wednesday–Sunday
