Dark Skies
Aliens mess with a suburban family's peace of mind in this unsettling, slow-burn thriller.
Film Review  March 1, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Writer-director Stewart demonstrated his prowess with genre mash-ups in his previous two films, Priest and Legion, and continues in that vein in Dark Skies.

Film Review  April 24, 1998, by Marc Savlov
"...A gangster-noir-comedy that fires blanks all the way through, O'Fallon's feature debut is a textbook example of the triumph of style over substance: 30 seconds after the end credits roll, you've already forgotten what you just saw, even though you may have a nagging suspicion that it sure looked good. Walken plays aging an mafia boss, Charlie Barrett, who finds himself kidnapped by a quintet of wealthy, Ivy League college boys intent on using his underworld contacts to secure the release of the sister of one of the boys, herself a mysterious kidnap victim..."

"...SILVER SCOOTER: Denizens of a dreamy pop world where John Lennon, Stephen Malkmus, and Syd Barrett can all live as one, Austin's Silver Scooter reconciles the heart-on-the-sleeve philosophy of the Seventies with that staple of the Nineties, irony. Most bands do this and turn into ironic wimps; all Silver Scooter does is forge gems like "Pumpkin Eyes," beautiful songs that do justice to both their influences and their vision..."

International Bands
Music Story  March 19, 2010
"...So, if you think that the British musical legacy stops at the M25 road around London and all you know about Leeds is that the Who once shook it all over, then the cello-enhanced cerebral pop of Grammatics (Sat., 7:55pm, the Phoenix) will be an education. Serious Sam Barrett (Wed., 9pm, Velveeta Room) could be this year's Frank Turner; the punk-friendly summation of British folk, his hard-hewn acoustic tales of blue-collar pride demonstrate that the roots of Americana lie across the Atlantic..."
