Earthquakes 101

Why all the activity of late in-state?


Features

Sara Custer
Six hundred earthquakes rocked Oklahoma County last year. If you think that’s a lot, you’d be right: That marks an increase from 37 felt earthquakes reported in 2008 and 2009, and only seven from 1987 to 2007.

Soda grows up

Whether you call it soda, pop or (the ill-advised) soda pop, fizzy drinks have gone fancy.


Food and Drink Features

Christina Nihira
While summer is still a scorching celebration, try treating yourself to a decadent soda. Curious cream sodas, spicy ginger ales, rich root beers, tart citrus beverages with genuine bitterness, complex colas — they’re all chilling out there beside surprising, one-of-a-kind flavors as diverse as cucumber, chocolate and jalapeño oil.

Rock of Ages

Fire away.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In the opening scene of Rock of Ages, the lead character of Sherrie (Julianna Hough, Footloose) leaves Oklahoma for California, and quite frankly, we're better off without her. Good riddance, girl.

Lincoln

Daniel Day-Lewis embodies America's arguably greatest president.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Lincoln practically shouts “prestige production” before you’ve even had a chance to buy your popcorn. A costume drama about one of this nation’s most revered historical figures, this is the kind of film irresistible to awards groups.

Zorro

Z marks the spot, occasionally.


Action

Rod Lott
It wasn't too long ago you could find crap copies of 1975's Zorro in the dollar-store DVD bins. For a Blu-ray release, Somerville House has cleaned it all up digitally, improving everything but how dull it sometimes is.

Hope Springs

And yet it also falls flat.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Meryl Streep is in a rut — not the actress, who's arguably still atop her game in her fifth decade of screen stardom, but the character she plays in Hope Springs. Long married to frowny sad sack Arnold (Lincoln's Tommy Lee Jones, not exactly stretching), Kay feels more like a roommate than a wife. They don't even share a bedroom any more.
