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...

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...

May’s Offerings

The fifth month of the year has shuffled its way down the line, and I may or may not have some movies for you to check out! (Sorry, writing differing intros gets difficult so you may just have to deal with these puns for now … maybe.) Starting with another Marvel tent-pole film, the month opens with Doctor Strange in...

January has arrived ... when movies are typically taken out to pasture and killed. Bleak, I know, but there are a few films this month that might rise above that predestined path. Welcome to 2022!  First up is The Tender Bar. Written by William Monahan (The Departed) and directed by George Clooney, the film stars Tye Sheridan as J.R. Moehringer,...

Neighborhood Influences

In Tulsa, not all that far from his old Maple Ridge neighborhood, writer and producer Micah Fitzerman-Blue is having a beautiful day. Along with hundreds of other adults and kids, he and his family members are experiencing first-hand what USA Today has called the “best new attraction” in the nation – Gathering Place. “I’ve never seen anything like this in...

Funneling the Weird

Around Town My credo now approves of any film festival with the category “The Strange Batch” to cover what it describes as “wonderfully weird shorts.” This decision came after looking at the lineup of the Twister Alley Film Festival, happening May 2-4 at the Woodward Arts Theater. That listing is just one indication of the festival’s offbeat sensibilities. With other...

‘At Least It’s An Ethos’

Around Town Modern fandom is wonderful. The ease of communication and organization afforded by the internet make it possible for fans of cult films to put together regular events that connect them with other enthusiasts. The Big Lebowski is something of an odd choice for cult film status – it’s the rare “midnight film” that’s actually good and stands on its...
