Mad Monster Party?

We'll just drop by.


Family

Rod Lott
Before Hotel Transylvania, there was Mad Monster Party? (question mark theirs), a 1967 quasi-classic of stop-motion animation from Rankin/Bass — the company behind all those old Christmas specials that still air every year, from Rudolph to Frosty. What keeps this Party from being as perennial is that it's three times as long.

The Revenant

Ain’t no trip to ‘Zombieland.’


Comedy

Rod Lott
I recently had a discussion with friends about the increasing trend of self-aggrandizing Twitter bios of locals who think so mighty highly of themselves, they must brag to the Internet about their amazing awesomeness! Our theory is, if you have to tell the world you're a "creative genius" or "master of [fill in the blank]," you're more than likely not. Real genius speaks for itself.

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.

General Education

#fail


Comedy

Rod Lott
If Ferris Bueller's Day Off were directed by Wes Anderson, it might resemble the coming-of-age comedy General Education.

The Wrath of God

Thou shalt not screw with Robert Mitchum.


Western

Rod Lott
What a kick it is to see Robert Mitchum biting into a stogie and laying waste to a room with a machine gun. Because, really, how often does a man of the cloth do that? No wonder the 1972 quasi-Western is titled The Wrath of God. The film takes place in a South American town so brutal and dismal that, as one character reasons, "If God had wanted to give the world an enema, he'd've stuck the nozzle in here."

Iron Sky

The empire Reichs back.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
It's 2018, and a U.S. president who looks uncannily like Sarah Palin sends a black man to the moon in a bid for re-election. The American lunar module lands on the dark side of the moon — you know, where the Transformers live — and finds an enormous Nazi outpost that's been there since Hitler's plan for world domination failed.
