Journey 2: The Mysterious Island / Jules Verne’s The Mysterious Island

One good Verne deserves another.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
You won't find Jules Verne's name in the credits of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, but so integral is he to the surprise-hit sequel that the classic author is practically a supporting character, despite being dead since 1905.

Midwest movies

‘How to’ see free flicks outdoors this summer.

Midwest City, home to Hollywood’s brightest stars!

Well, every Sunday night through Aug. 12, that is. Thanks to the Midwest City Parks and Recreation Department, the community now has Sunset Cinema, a free, outdoor movie series to call its own, beginning 20 minutes after the sun slowly dips below the horizon, like a lover waving goodbye.

While the series began last night with The Muppets, plenty of other titles await your blankets and lawn chairs at Charles J. Johnson Central Park Town Center, 7209 S.E. 29th.

• June 10, Puss in Boots
• June 17, Top Gun
• June 24, How to Train Your Dragon
• July 1, Despicable Me
• July 8, Megamind
• July 15, Madagascar
• July 22, Cars
• July 29, Secretariat
• Aug. 5, Gnomeo & Juliet
• Aug. 12, Grease

Fun fact: Two of those selections star America’s most famous Scientologists. For more information, call 739-1293 or visit midwestcityok.org/sunset-cinemas. —Rod Lott

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.

Monster Brawl

If wrestling were like this, I'd watch.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Imagine there were a pay-per-view pro wrestling championship battle in which the fighters were not your Hulk Hogans, but hulking creatures. Would you watch it?
