The Burning

Third-degree terror.


Horror

Rod Lott
It speaks to the strength of The Burning’s reputation among cult-film fans that what’s most memorable about the 1981 slasher is not that it was written by the Weinstein brothers, nor that it represents early appearances of the likes of Jason Alexander, Holly Hunter and Fisher Stevens. It’s that its Cropsy is just a damned good villain.

Various artists — Woody Guthrie at 100!: Live at the Kennedy Center


Folk

Zach Hale
Few 20th-century figures were more influential than Woody Guthrie. The folk icon and Oklahoma native has a legacy and scope that span the musical stratosphere, predating and inspiring genres from country to punk rock.

Pooping Tom


CFN

Gazette staff
A Tulsa man found himself SOL early last week, and all because nobody believed his story about being stuffed into a septic tank against his will with no other recourse but to watch people relieve themselves in the bathroom.

The Fog

For a great ghost story, bank on it.


Horror

Rod Lott
Once considered a disappointment (because anything after Halloween unfairly would be), John Carpenter's The Fog today is a genre-audience favorite — well-admired if just shy of qualifying as a modern horror classic. Its Blu-ray debut from Shout! Factory cements that.

Oblivion

Cruise into a dystopian future.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Oblivion marks the second Tom Cruise vehicle in a row — Jack Reacher being the first — to underperform at the box office and underwhelm critics, yet turns out to be not bad. Not bad at all! (Scientology backlash? Signs point to “yes.”)

Uhhhh, might he be right this time?


CFN

Gazette staff
For all intents and purposes, sports are big (like, really big) businesses. Both collegiate and professional sports routinely rake in billions of dollars each year, yet, for whatever reason, these organizations were deemed untouchable — something the feds ought to keep their dirty little hands off of, no matter how high the dollar amounts.

Captain Phillips

Paul Greengrass commandeers this true story into waters no other director would travel.


Drama

Louis Fowler

Paul Greengrass has some real cojones, man.

Tom coburn’s gone ... liberal?


CFN

Gazette staff
Honest, straightforward comments about Obamacare have pushed U.S. Senator Tom Coburn (R-Muskogee) out of the conservative circle, according to some. Coburn is finishing nine years in the Senate and has received high conservative ratings each year — at least until now.
