Cultish comedy

"Weird Al" Yankovic’s Oklahoma-sized motion picture debut, UHF, celebrates 25 years this month.


Louis Fowler

The summer of 1989 was one of the biggest blockbuster summers of all time, with hit movie after hit movie released, including Batman, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. In the middle of this cluttered schedule, a little low-budget comedy starring song-parodist “Weird Al” Yankovic titled UHF was quietly released and then quickly disappeared into the cinematic flotsam.

Rock it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

They don’t just give away nicknames like The Red Rocker; they have to be earned. Sammy Hagar has been “Livin’ It Up” with “Heavy Metal” and “Mas Tequila,” so the dude is a bona fide rock star (dressed in red, get it?). See the former Van Halen frontman with The Wabos, Tom Keifer and more, starting 7 p.m. Saturday at Grand Casino Hotel and Resort, 777 Grand Casino Blvd. in Shawnee. Tickets are $45-$75. Call 964-7777 or visit

Disturb it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Some horror tales are forgotten (Sharknado, anyone?), while others endure. Considering Euripides died some 2400 years ago, his disturbing tragedy Medea qualifies as the latter. The OKC Theatre Company will resurrect the ancient production at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave. Tickets are $10. Call 297-2584 or visit

Participate in the theatrical performance while learning about the house’s ghostly history from 7-11 p.m. Friday through Sunday until Nov. 2 at 2005 NW 10th St. Admission is $7. Call 232-1816.

And he wants his scalps!


Rod Lott
Reveling in the seediness that is downtown Los Angeles at night, IFC Films' Maniac is a rare remake that's better than the original. William Lustig's 1980 of the same name long has enjoyed a sizable cult, but I found it to be a thoroughly ugly film in all respects. And I actually like slasher movies!

Counterpoint: Streetcar budget defies reality


Nancy K. Anderson
Now that the 4.5-mile downtown route for the MAPS 3 streetcar — Phase 1 — has been decided, the challenge will be to get it completed at a cost anywhere near the amount budgeted. The experience in other cities indicates it will cost far more to build — and to keep it running — than we’ve been told.
