Creep Van

Buckle up!


Horror

Rod Lott
Says a concerned mother in the opening scene, "If I've told you once, I've told you a hundred times: Stay away from vans. Only bad people own vans." Truer words, ne'er spoken, especially in the case of Creep Van, an independently funded flick of horror from the heart.

Citadel

Welcome to the tower of cower.


Horror

Rod Lott
I swear, the luck o' the Irish: While moving from her condemned apartment building, a young, pretty and very pregnant woman (Amy Shiels, Veronica Guerin) is brutally attacked by three youths in hoodies while her husband, Tommy (Aneurin Barnard, Ironclad), watches helplessly from the elevator in which he's stuck.

The Master

‘Master’ful filmmaking, yet impenetrable for some.


Drama

Rod Lott
Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master is my least favorite of the director’s half-dozen films. That said, he has yet to make a bad one.

Much Ado About Nothing

Great Shakes!


Comedy

Aimee Williams
Testing the adaptability of a literary and theater masterpiece, Josh Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing obliterates all of the pomp and ceremony typically associated with a Shakespeare production, bringing it down to earth in Southern California.

Women Who Kill

More like maim.


Comedy

Rod Lott
An hour of stage comedy by female stand-ups, Women Who Kill errs in putting its not-so-secret weapon right upfront: Amy Schumer, who might just be the funniest person in America right now. Even her throwaway lines (“Do you ever have Oxycontin mouth?” she asks no one, rhetorically) pierce the flesh.

Vince Gill looks hate in the face


CFN

Gazette staff
Sometimes, people surprise you (in a good way). We here at CFN were more than pleasantly surprised last week when we ran across a video of one of Oklahoma’s world-famous country crooners (and Northwest Classen High School grad — go mighty Knights!), Vince Gill, giving those jerks at Westboro Baptist Church the what-haveyou. On Sept. 8, Westboro members set up outside the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Mo., where Gill was set to perform.

Her

More than just a futuristic love story, Spike Jonze’s Her is a timely, philosophical masterwork.


Drama

Zach Hale
The futuristic Los Angeles depicted in Her is hardly dystopian. Instead of war-torn landscapes and flying robot drones, director Spike Jonze offers Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix, The Master), a lonesome writer in the midst of a divorce, and the soft, affectionate voice of Samantha (Scarlet Johannson, Don Jon), a computer-based operating system with whom he falls in love.

The Slumber Party Massacre

Drill, baby, drill!


Horror

Rod Lott
According to The Slumber Party Massacre, young women love to have group sleepovers so fun that the girls don't have the good sense to leave the house when their party is crashed by the arrival of a drill-wielding serial killer.
