Giant Robot Action Pack

Giant, fighting robots. What, were you expecting something else?


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
While neither film in the “Giant Robot Action Pack” is technically good, I’d rather watch either of them for 24 hours straight — wait, make that 48 — than sit through a single viewing of any of the “Transformers” franchise.

Lake Placid: The Final Chapter

Somewhat fun because it knows it bites.


Horror

Rod Lott
Lake Placid: The Final Chapter has swam to video shores, losing the numeral “4” somewhere along the way. Haven't seen Lake Placid 2 or 3? Didn't know they existed? Ooh, you are going to be so lost!

Eastbound & Down: The Complete Third Season

Major-league laughs at bat.


Television series

Rod Lott
On the basis of Eastbound & Down’s first two seasons, if Kenny Powers were a real person, I’d advise readers to lock up their daughters. After watching the third season, I’d add infants and toddlers to that list.

John Dies at the End

Far-out fun.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Better than the hit novel on which it’s as faithfully based as budgetary issues allow, John Dies at the End is one of those movies that tries really hard to be a cult movie. In this case, however, the goal has been met; I suspect that, as with most of director Don Coscarelli’s work, from Phantasm and The Beastmaster to Bubba Ho-Tep, we’ll still be discussing this one decades later. That’s not to say it’s without faults.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Abracadaverage!


Comedy

Rod Lott
There’s nothing wrong per se with The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. It just desperately lacks the edge you know it had to have at some early stage, but lost somewhere in all the tinkering to tailor it to a widest-possible audience. Enough hints of it remain to make the movie worth a watch — perfectly agreeable, if perfectly forgettable.

A Boy and His Dog

Overlooked in its time, the cult classic is unearthed and given the Blu-ray treatment. Don Johnson in hi-fi!


Sci-Fi

Patrick Crain
There is something truly remarkable about A Boy and His Dog: the ability to remain under the radar despite all its cultural touchstones, owing a debt of gratitude to L.Q. Jones’s adaptation of Harlan Ellison’s novella.

‘It’s a fairness issue’

A 9-year legal struggle involving LGBT rights might finally come to a conclusion


News

Greg Horton
Gay Phillips and Sue Barton have been a couple for 29 years. For the past nine, they’ve been fighting the state of Oklahoma to recognize their marriage. They joined a federal lawsuit filed by Tulsans Mary Bishop and Sharon Baldwin in 2004 after state voters passed a same-sex marriage ban.
