Entertainment review


Letters to the Editor

Jeremiah Baer
Please bring back more movie reviews, DVD reviews and TV reviews. Why have you limited your movie review section down to one or two movies per issue? I do not want to read your movie reviews online.

Point broke


CFN

Gazette staff
Had actor Gary Busey not allegedly attacked a woman at a Tulsa airport last summer, the one-time Oklahoman might be able to breathe a little easier. Actually, scratch that — he’s in way over his head, according to documents related to his Feb. 7 filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

12 Creature Features

Need a dozen ways to kill a weekend? Just add cheese!


Horror

Rod Lott
I don't know that Mill Creek Entertainment's three-disc set of 12 Creature Features is quite the "dream come true" for "B-movie lovers" as the box proclaims, but that's only because so much of the contents likely already exist in their collections of public-domain DVDs.

Dark Crimes

How to kill 3,640 minutes of time wisely.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Mill Creek Entertainment’s budget pack of noir, Dark Crimes, strongly goes against the notion that films in the public domain are there because they aren't any good. That’s nonsense.

Grand Duel / Keoma

Two helpings of spaghetti, please!


Western

Rod Lott
Mill Creek Entertainment offers another "Spaghetti Western Double Feature" by pairing 1972's Grand Duel and 1976's Keoma on one Blu-ray. Although both already are available on the company's Ten Thousand Ways to Die: The Spaghetti Western Collection on DVD — not to mention a dozen other labels' public-domain discs — the prints here are so clear that fans of the genre should consider the small investment.

D.O.A.

Twenty-four hours to live, in 96 minutes or less.


Thriller

Rod Lott
A guy walks into a police station to report a murder: himself! With that setup, one could make a tight, terrific crime film — and D.O.A. is that movie ... in 1950. The 1988 remake doesn't fare as well, but at least it's been preserved on Blu-ray by Mill Creek Entertainment.
