Nitro Circus: The Movie

Wow! Ouch!


Documentary

Rod Lott
Granted only a limited theatrical release this summer, Nitro Circus: The Movie is like Jackass with more athleticism, more engineering know-how, more maturity, more corporate sponsors, and much less testicular trauma.

Kill ’Em All

Morrrrrtal combatttttt!


Action

Rod Lott
For the first 10 minutes, I wondered if Kill ’Em All weren’t a movie at all, but a collection of unrelated action vignettes — a bomb hit here, a knife throw there, fists and feet everywhere — as seemingly unrelated characters fight, but hardly speak, with no story given.

Nature Calls

Scout’s honor: This movie should be funny.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Nature Calls finds writer/director Todd Rohal attempting to shoehorn the wonderfully, outlandishly absurd humor of his previous film, 2011's The Catechism Cataclysm, into a vehicle more mainstream. While it doesn't generate ill will, it does not work, try though the cast might.

Joshua Boydston
Tulsa rap export Johnny Polygon made a splash with 2010’s Rebel Without Applause. Now he’s back with his most fully realized effort to date.

The Last Stand

Welcome back, Arnie. But that's it?


Action

Rod Lott
Early in The Last Stand, the small-town sheriff played by Arnold Schwarzenegger says, "It's my day off. Should be a quiet weekend." That's the new way of saying, "I've got one week to retirement," because it signals — with flashing neon and everything — that life is going to royally upend those plans.

The To Do List

Even if it only has S-E-X on its mind, this isn’t your ordinary gross-out comedy.


Comedy

Aimee Williams
Let’s talk about sex. Specifically, how absurd sex can be.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

Rather than retire, the Jackass franchise flirts with fiction — if not sexually harasses it — in the semi-scripted, wholly hilarious Bad Grandpa.


Comedy

Rod Lott

Riotous as they are, the Jackass movies have not been immune to the law of diminishing returns — in terms of laughs, not box office. That the fourth feature, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, is the funniest since the first, 2002's Jackass: The Movie, is something of an unexpected achievement.
