Naked Angels

This biker flick has no clothes.


Action

Rod Lott
For his productions, Roger Corman knew the market value of a great title. Naked Angels is one of them, but in the case, but it’s like putting icing on a pile of dog poop.

Goats

No kidding: David Duchovny's great in this.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Prep-school movies are the ultimate cinematic representations of White People Problems. Rich, entitled kids suffering because — in the case of Goats — they can’t score weed.

Rock of ageless

That Aug. 31 show of Def Leppard, Poison and Lita Ford proved nothin’ but a good time.


Music

Louis Fowler
For one sweltering night, everyone at the Zoo Amphitheatre — young and old, black and white, old-school hesher and decked-out hipster — were 16 years old again, living in the much-missed year of 1987, all without a single hint of irony.

Klown

One tart and tasty Danish!


Comedy

Rod Lott
That The Hangover director Todd Phillips has plans to helm an Americanization of the Danish comedy Klown (or Klovn) comes as neither a surprise nor a shock. I'd only be surprised if the remake can get within arm's length of equaling it.

Hostel / Hostel: Part II

Hurt so good.


Horror

Rod Lott
Few critics are unable to see through the violence and admit there's a real artfulness at work in Eli Roth's pair of Hostel films, both now available in their unrated director's cuts on a single, budget-priced Blu-ray from Mill Creek Entertainment.

Rock of Ages

Fire away.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In the opening scene of Rock of Ages, the lead character of Sherrie (Julianna Hough, Footloose) leaves Oklahoma for California, and quite frankly, we're better off without her. Good riddance, girl.

Beyond the Black Rainbow

Once you go 'Black' ...


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Prepare to have your mind violated. Beyond the Black Rainbow hardly represents conventional storytelling, but the film is an absolute visual feast. Expect sensuous rather than sense, and open-minded movie lovers will be well-rewarded.

Confessions of an Opium Eater / The Face of Fu Manchu / The Vengeance of Fu Manchu

Confucius say ... WTF?!?


Thriller

Rod Lott
For very different reasons, I'll watch any movie with Vincent Price, Bill Murray, Jackie Chan or Carla Gugino. Falling into the first category is 1962's Confessions of an Opium Eater, a rare Price vehicle rare no more, thanks to a DVD debut from Warner Archive.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis — The Heist


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Seattle-based rapper Macklemore has once again teamed up with producer Ryan Lewis to cook up an album that is nothing short of fantastic.

Rites of Passage

Wrongs make 'Rites.'


Thriller

Rod Lott
Rites of Passage's box art of boring actors’ faces should switch with the illustration adorning the actual disc: a play on the ol' skull and crossbones logo, but using a sock monkey and shotguns. That's what convinced me the film might be worth its 102 minutes. Ultimately, it's not, but its first half makes for an interesting mess.
