Dark Skies

Close encounters of the suburban kind.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Thanks to examples like The Others and Sinister, moviegoers know that whenever a kids' crayon drawing pops up, it's never a good sign for the protagonists. Add Dark Skies to that list.

Much Ado About Nothing

Great Shakes!


Comedy

Aimee Williams
Testing the adaptability of a literary and theater masterpiece, Josh Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing obliterates all of the pomp and ceremony typically associated with a Shakespeare production, bringing it down to earth in Southern California.

Tallows — Memory Marrow


Indie

Zach Hale
Expectations can be a real pain in the ass. With today’s digital release model, hype trains traverse the Internet at breakneck speeds, often before a proper album is released. One or two great songs can set the bar so extraordinarily high that it will never be attained, much less cleared.

Scenic Route

Take it!


Thriller

Rod Lott

Never say never, because here's something I've now said twice this year: Josh Duhamel is really good in this! He was the best thing in the much-maligned sketch comedy Movie 43, and now he dominates Scenic Route.

Pink Pony — Whatever


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
With a name like Whatever, you might expect the full-length debut of Oklahoma City’s Pink Pony — a repackaging of Steven Battles’ Chrome Pony now featuring our governor’s daughter, Christina Fallin — to read nonchalant, but it’s anything but. Instead, Whatever is one of the most tailored and tightly programmed efforts to come out from these parts in some time. It’s an album that moves as well as it thinks.
