Topic: kevin Durant

Look who's striking

(Hint: His name rhymes with Kevin Durant.)

Presented almost without comment, it’s the trailer to Kevin Durant’s first film, Kazaam Thunderstruck. The family film starring Oklahoma City’s new favorite son was shot primarily in, um, Baton Rouge, La.?!?

At least the trailer does explain why we didn’t win the national title. Who knew?

To borrow an old joke from SNL’s “Weekend Update” segment, Thunderstruck hits theaters Aug. 24, and home video on Aug. 25. —Rod Lott

OKC Thunder star Kevin Durant’s movie debut hurts as much as an NBA Playoffs loss to the Miami Heat.


Harrison Lott
Editor’s note: For Thunderstruck, the new family comedy starring the Thunder’s Kevin Durant, it struck us that, since the movie is really aimed at pre-teen and teenaged KD fans, who better to review it than an avowed Thunder fan of that age? Here with his review is guest critic Harrison Lott, a 15-year-old student at Edmond Memorial High School.

Maybe I’m corn-mazed


Gazette staff
When you hear the phrase “cornfield,” do you think of children trying to kill you with farm implements? Or do you think of wholesome autumnal fun? If it’s the latter, head to Chickasha!

Thunderstruck boasts more than just the distinction of marking the big-screen debut of OKC Thunder superstar Kevin Durant. The film, an alleged comedy in which the Durantula’s basketball skills are inadvertently swiped by a school kid, might just be the first-ever family-friendly movie to include an appearance by an accused child molester. Granted, there was that John Wayne Gacy cameo in 1974’s Herbie Rides Again, but we’re told you’ve gotta look really fast for that one.

In praise of 'Thunderstruck'

Letters to the Editor

Rosemary Stafford
I wonder if the 15-year-old kid who wrote “Fouled Out” (Film, Harrison Lott, Aug. 29, Oklahoma Gazette) represents most teenagers. It is sad that he couldn’t enjoy a lighthearted movie. Thunderstruck is tops, in my opinion. I sure do hope Kevin Durant doesn’t take to heart what was written.
