All Superheroes Must Die

Packs a mild punch.


Thriller

Rod Lott
At least All Superheroes Must Die isn't like every other comic book-inspired cinematic vision that currently serve as the buttered bread to Hollywood's rumbling stomach. That alone is not enough to make for a good movie, but it's a head start.

Black's Game

Love crime films? Play it!


Thriller

Rod Lott
Here's how I knew the Icelandic crime thriller Black’s Game was going to be great:

Mimesis

Flattery will get you nowhere.


Horror

Rod Lott
When I first heard of Mimesis, I thought it was a great idea: horror fans unwittingly participating in a live role-playing game that plops them into the classic film Night of the Living Dead. Now that I've seen it, however, I realize I was wrong. It's a terrible idea, and one executed poorly by Dark Fields director Douglas Schulze.

funrun

For the ‘Fun’ of it

Watch Kyle Roberts’ app-tastic adaptation of a smartphone game sensation.

Played Fun Run yet? Or perhaps, like me, just watched over your kid’s shoulder as he did?

Hell, even if you haven’t heard of the game, this clip’s themes are universal enough that you’ll get it. Local filmmaker/animator Kyle Roberts’ latest project is “Fun Run in Real Life,” a three-minute video that sees some wicked parkour unleashed throughout downtown Oklahoma City — especially Stage Center, which seems made for dat sh!t — as fast-paced participants use their feet and try not to lose their heads:



You may have recognized OKC rapper Jabee lending his voice. (If not, you weren’t paying attention; like all good hip-hoppers, he directly references himself in the lyrics.)

God help us all if Hollywood decides to turn Fun Run into a movie, but if it does, Roberts deserves the directing gig. —Rod Lott

The Big Boss / Fist of Fury / The Way of the Dragon / Game of Death

Bruce is loose ... again!


Action

Rod Lott
Let us now praise a giant of action cinema: Bruce Lee. It seems like a good time, given Shout! Factory’s reissuing of four of the man’s marital-arts titles via a pair of double-feature DVDs: one with 1971’s The Big Boss and 1972’s Fist of Fury, the other with 1972’s The Way of the Dragon and 1978’s partly posthumous Game of Death. In total, that’s three-point-two-five good movies.

Would You Rather

Why, yes, I would!


Horror

Rod Lott
That innocent exchange of tough questions becomes Saw: The Home Game in IFC Midnight’s release of Would You Rather. How I would love to have seen an audience react to this in a theater!
