Something Big

Oh, it’s ‘Something,’ all right: in questionable taste.


Comedy

Rod Lott
When I think of Dean Martin, I think of cocktails, not cowboys. Making a long-overdue DVD bow, 1971's Something Big outfits the Rat Pack veep in Western wear for a comedic go-round as one Joe Baker.

Rock of Ages

Fire away.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In the opening scene of Rock of Ages, the lead character of Sherrie (Julianna Hough, Footloose) leaves Oklahoma for California, and quite frankly, we're better off without her. Good riddance, girl.

Feathered Rabbit — Feathered Rabbit


Indie

Zach Hale
Feathered Rabbit is kind of a throwback band. Unlike most others in the digital age, its increased exposure has come by way of a bedazzling live presence and the ensuing word-of-mouth.

Dan Deacon — America


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
Lots of adjectives can be used to describe mad-pop scientist Dan Deacon’s back catalog: zany, fun, disorienting, loud, clashing, dysfunctional and dizzying.

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.

Frankenweenie

Tim Burton builds a better 'Frankenweenie' and it’s alive! It’s alive! It’s alive with humor and heart.


Children's

Rod Lott
One imagines Frankenweenie is the movie director Tim Burton has been waiting to make his entire life.

Sinister

Ethan Hawke finds something 'Sinister' in his new home, and it makes for ideal Halloween-season viewing.


Horror

Rod Lott
Although horror movies rarely scare me, I love them. The most I can hope for is to be creeped out sufficiently, and Sinister satisfies that bill.

Beyond the Black Rainbow

Once you go 'Black' ...


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Prepare to have your mind violated. Beyond the Black Rainbow hardly represents conventional storytelling, but the film is an absolute visual feast. Expect sensuous rather than sense, and open-minded movie lovers will be well-rewarded.
