Now you’ve got weekend plans: ‘Soul on Fire’

Before or after you head to Gazette’s Halloween Parade, that is.

At 8 p.m. Saturday, Rose State Performing Arts Center in Midwest City presents the musical “Soul on Fire.”

Oklahoma-based and brimming with Oklahoma talent, this musical boasts a forbidden love, powerful music, punchy dialogue and a heap of secrets that Kisha navigates with the help of Mozes.

Onstage, you might recognize Tyrone Stanley, adjunct professor at Oklahoma City Community College; Donna Cox, music professor at the University of Oklahoma; Bonita Franklin, acting chair for the Department of Music at Langston University; and Bruce Davis, Oklahoma City Police Department veteran, just to name a few.

You'll get a healthy dose of stardom from big-name artists and entertainers like Shirley Murduck and Delvis “Tyga” Graham, as well as Michelle Lynn Hardin, former background singer for John Legend.

What are you waiting for? Secure your soul ... at least for the weekend. Get your tickets at soulonfirethemusical.net. Take advantage of the early bird special through Oct. 31: buy one, get one half off!

The Expendables 2

Bigger, better, badassier.


Action

Rod Lott
Preceding the start of The Expendables 2 is an ad for its tie-in video game. Why bother playing such a thing when so many sequences of the the movie make you feel like you're doing so already? I mean that as a compliment, because as directed by Simon West (The Mechanic), the sequel’s 15-minute prologue is so unrelenting in nonstop action that it’s likely to turn you giddy.

I Am Bruce Lee

They call him Bruce.


Documentary

Rod Lott
I was incorrect in thinking the documentary I Am Bruce Lee wouldn't reveal anything new about the screen's greatest martial artist. While not exactly earth-shattering, the facts I learned numbered many.

From behind the scenes at his Oklahoma-based talent agency, Jim Halsey helped change the face of modern music. A new exhibition of memorabilia is proof positive.

The Big Boss / Fist of Fury / The Way of the Dragon / Game of Death

Bruce is loose ... again!


Action

Rod Lott
Let us now praise a giant of action cinema: Bruce Lee. It seems like a good time, given Shout! Factory’s reissuing of four of the man’s marital-arts titles via a pair of double-feature DVDs: one with 1971’s The Big Boss and 1972’s Fist of Fury, the other with 1972’s The Way of the Dragon and 1978’s partly posthumous Game of Death. In total, that’s three-point-two-five good movies.

Crimewave

We find it guilty ... of being underseen!


Comedy

Rod Lott
I’m the weird guy who saw Sam Raimi’s Crimewave before I saw Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead. Four or five times.

Enter the Dragon: 40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition

Enter the greatest martial-arts film in history.


Action

Rod Lott
To karate-chop right to the chase, Enter the Dragon is the martial-arts movie to end all martial-arts movies. This comes as news to no one who has seen and enjoyed it over what now amounts to four decades. To celebrate that milestone, Warner Home Video has reissued it on Blu-ray in a handsome 40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition.
