Dynamic Offerings Abound

We’re five months into 2023, and cinematic offerings don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. This selection may involve some superheroes, action and comedy, so maybe you’ll find something worth heading to the theatre for.  Starting us off is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Closing the trilogy of films, all written and directed by James Gunn, the movie...

The Frontiers of Creativity

Encouraging Imagination  Oklahoma is home to a rich history as it pertains to the film and music industries. Thankfully, several organizations have been established over the years to preserve this knowledge and heritage. The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame, located in Muskogee, boasts over 100 inducted members. Established in 1997, it holds live concerts every week and has a museum full...

February Films Beckon

February, the month of love, returns to us with pretty much no romantic films for its entire duration. Not to worry – there are still plenty of good movies to enjoy for a Valentine’s Day date, or just as a way to escape the cold for a little while.  Right out the gate, we have Knock at the Cabin. Directed...

The Legacy of Scout Younger

“One hundred years ago,” says Harvey Shell, “most everyone in Tulsa would’ve known Scout Younger’s name. Now, no one does.”  Shell, along with fellow historian Stephen McCartney, are out to change that, hoping to bring a new round of recognition to a man they say was not only a pioneering Oklahoma filmmaker, but a consummate showman and trick rider who,...

Showcasing the State

The Oklahoma filmmaking community continues to grow year after year. Jeremy and Kara Choate, a husband and wife creative duo from Tahlequah, have joined those ranks.  Their first film, Tenkiller, debuted in November 2022. It follows an eighteen-year-old machinist who struggles with the death of his best friend, the divorce of his parents and the general violence of his life....

The January Blues

Uh oh, it’s January! The month of sadness is here – because the sun is still going down too early and some of the worst movies wind up coming to theaters. Let me warn you, the selection is a little bleak this month. I have a choice few to share with you, along with some older recommendations to balance...

Pristine Cinema Beckons

As the end of year approaches, the big Oscar contenders tend to roll out en masse. But don’t you worry, we’ve got some non-Oscar bait films this month as well, and they look just as excellent.  Starting the month off right, sit back and enjoy Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. Starring Daniel Radcliffe as the titular Weird Al, the film...

Making Monsters

Special effects (SFX) and prosthetic makeup are some of the most integral parts of filmmaking, especially when it comes to horror and science fiction. Tate Steinsiek, a native Oklahoman, is a master of the craft, working on everything from small budget horror flicks all the way up to The Amazing Spider-Man.  “Monsters and imagination were a big part of my...

Original Content Abounds

August soon arrives, and instead of blockbusters and sequels, it’s mostly a month filled with original films, unattached to previously existing IP. A rarity to be sure! Hopefully, these stories can pull you to the theater (and out of the heat) a few times in the coming weeks. First up, a psychological thriller called Resurrection. The story follows Margaret (Rebecca...

The Draws of Summer Cinema

June has arrived! As we take a moment to realize we’ve (somehow) entered the sixth month of a year that feels like a repeat of the last two, let us reflect on some of the weird, wacky and wild movies hitting theaters in the coming weeks. First up, a biographical comedy film titled Phantom of the Open. Based on real...
