No Russ, no problem

After going 5-5 in the first 10 games since Westbrook went out on Dec. 27, the Thunder have racked up several quality wins against playoff contenders. Oklahoma City plays at two-time defending NBA champion Miami tonight at 6 p.m. CST, and then the Thunder travel to New York to face the Brooklyn Nets on Friday

Board again

For children of the ’80s or earlier, it likely involved a board game like Wahoo, whose origins date back to the Depression era, when a 15-by-15-inch piece of scrap wood could be transformed into the strategy game played with marbles and dice. While Wahoo (also called Aggravation) went commercial with plastic and paper versions in

Back on attack

She had an Oklahoma City shirt, Thunder-blue boots and a vibrant smile that was the perfect accessory to her bedazzled Oklahoma City Thunder handbag. So what if the bag was more fashion than function; it was opening night, and that means celebrating. Talk to any Thunder fan for the past five seasons — every game

Killing the messenger

 At the recent Cowboys’ home opener against Lamar University, an effigy of SI writer Thayer Evans — the primary reporter behind the five-part series — was hoisted outside the stadium. At this point, you’re probably thinking, “Oh, that’s cute. What, did they put him in a dress or something? Maybe some sort of compromising position?”

Bruce Lee: The Legacy Collection

Yet those were DVDs — and no-frills editions at that — whereas the new Legacy Collection is filled primarily with Blu-rays and loads of extras — about as many as the Boss is Big. Having just reviewed The Big Boss, Fist of Fury, The Way of the Dragon and Game of Death, I won’t rehash those

Would You Rather

In order to afford a bone marrow transplant for her ailing brother (Logan Miller, The Bling Ring), young, unemployed Iris (Brittany Snow, Pitch Perfect) accepts an exclusive invitation to a dinner party hosted by businessman Shepard Lambrick (Jeffrey Combs, the Re-Animator trilogy), at which his foundation will award a sizable sum of money to one

The Big Boss / Fist of Fury / The Way of the Dragon / Game of Death

The first two, I forever have confused and will continue to confuse with one another. Both are directed by Lo Wei and boast cartoonish credit sequences. But only one includes flying dogs, and that’s The Big Boss (also known as Fists of Fury, plural, to further complicate things). That film has him uncovering a murderous

Brooklyn Castle

The feature debut of director Katie Dellamaggiore, the documentary is now available on demand from FilmBuff. While this institution holds more championship chess titles than any other middle school in the nation (26), the film opens with them experiencing loss — well, second place, at least, among 862 teams. They win so often that not

Mimesis

Look, at least it’s not the new Night of the Living Dead 3D: Re-Animation, but that’s another review. There’s not much to Mimesis beyond the one-line summary above. Various attendees at a horror convention are invited to an exclusive, super-secret party that turns out to be the “game” — one in which they are stuck

Black’s Game

1. Among its producers is Nicolas Winding Refn, the filmmaker who steered Drive straight to the top of my list of 2011’s best films. 2. It opens with a title card that translates to “BASED ON REAL HARDCORE SHIT.” 3. See No. 2; repeat as necessary. Based on a novel based on a true story,
