Beauty Day

Before ‘Jackass,’ there was Cap’n Video.


Rod Lott
Don’t feel stupid: I didn’t know who Ralph Zavadil was, either. After all, we can’t be faulted for living in Oklahoma City instead of Ontario, Canada. Ultimately, it makes no difference, because Beauty Day, the documentary about the man, is a fun viewing nonetheless. That’s because there’s something about watching stunts of bodily harm that holds universal appeal.

The Tower

Flame on!


Rod Lott
I have no idea how South Korea was able to get away with not calling The Tower a remake of 1974’s The Towering Inferno. What's important is that it has; this is a terrific disaster epic that marries the gargantuan concepts of the Irwin Allen era with today’s technology.
