An argument against stamping out remakes.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Once upon a time — 1981, I believe — Jack Nicholson was considered a sex symbol and Jessica Lange, a joke. My, how times have changed, even if the film noir that put them together, The Postman Always Rings Twice, has not. The second screen telling of James M. Cain's potboiler novel, Postman finally has comes a-knockin' on Blu-ray.

White knight

Era-defining guitarist Jack White kicked off his solo tour Thursday night at Tulsa’s Cain’s Ballroom.


Music

Jack White has always been something of a time traveler. The first notes that crept out from those early days in Detroit were carved out of the best and brightest pockets of ’60s garage rock. And by the time "Seven Nation Army" grew into a cultural phenomenon in 2003 (one that you'll still hear marching bands charming the crowds at high school football games with today), Jack White had reconciled modern alternative with classic rock 'n' roll in a way few bands have ever come close to matching.
