Dark Shadows

The vampire comedy doesn't suck.


Comedy

Rod Lott
One of this summer's biggest bombs, Dark Shadows is only a disappointment if you expect a straight take on the 1960s Gothic soap opera. Then again, the TV series is such the definition of niche-cult that most moviegoers didn't know what to make of it. While I would have preferred to see Tim Burton go horror with the material — more Sleepy Hollow, less Beetlejuice — I still found the quasi-spoof comedy to be a mild delight.

Sooner the Sunset — Sooner the Sunset


Pop

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City’s own Graham Colton is one of the most formidable solo artists the Sooner state has to offer, and he’s even more impressive as half of the new duo Sooner the Sunset, having found his musical soul mate in vocalist Lindsey Ray.

Shiny Toy Guns — III


Rock

Joshua Boydston
After an uneven presence following 2008’s hard rock-leaning Season of Poison, Shiny Toy Guns is back with its third release, appropriately titled III.

Chasing tailgate


CFN

Gazette staff
Hot dog! Oklahomans shouldn’t be too surprised that Food & Wine magazine recently listed Norman as one of the best tailgating cities in America.

247˚F

Nowhere near as hot as it thinks.


Thriller

Rod Lott
247˚F is as compelling as you'd think about a movie set almost entirely in a sauna would be: not at all, once you think about it. I'm all for films set in single and/or small spaces, but this one has nowhere to go.

Chernobyl Diaries

Another reason not to visit Russia, if you needed it.


Horror

Rod Lott
Famously, tragedy plus time equals comedy. Do they also equal horror? Up to you, but Chernobyl Diaries goes for it anyway.

Halloween II / Halloween III: Season of the Witch / Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers / Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers

Happy Halloween! Times four!


Horror

Rod Lott
Anyone who says the 1978 original is the only good movie in the Halloween franchise is kidding himself. While none of the succeeding chapters may match the power, there's plenty of fun to be had beyond that one night he came home.
