SXSW Film Review: 'That Guy Dick Miller'
Character actor Dick Miller brings the verve
DAILY Screens  March 10, 2014, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Ever see a Joe Dante movie – maybe Gremlins or Rock ’n’ Roll High School? Or perhaps The Terminator, or Scorsese’s After Hours? If you’ve seen any of these movies … or most any Roger Corman film, then you’ve seen Dick Miller...."

Fast, Cheap, and in Control
Roger Corman: An AFS tribute to a wild angel
Screens Story  August 7, 2014, by Louis Black
"...The Austin Film Society's series opens with the documentary That Guy Dick Miller about the important character actor who appears in almost all Corman's movies and many of those of his progeny (Demme once told me that casting Miller was considered a good-luck talisman). The film made its world premiere at SXSW. AFS Arthouse: the Films of Roger Corman..."

Tales From the Crypt Presents Demon Knight
Good performances and lots of blood and gore can't save this illogical TV-to-screen story from itself.
Film Review  January 20, 1995, by Joey O'Bryan
"...Dickerson. Starring: William Sadler, Billy Zane, Jada Pinket, Dick Miller, Brenda Bakke and CCH Pounder..."

Spotlight: Mission of Burma
Once I had my heroes…
Music Story  March 19, 2004, by Kate X Messer
"..."I can't hear it," says founding guitarist Roger Miller – unintentionally ironic, as Miller's bouts with the hearing disorder tinnitus forced the band's early split. "People tell me we've influenced them; I had no idea."..."

Noises Off!
In this screwball comedy, the behind-the-scenes activity of a traveling acting troupe threaten to bring down the play.
Film Review  March 27, 1992, by Louis Black
"...Following with two big hits, What's Up, Doc? (1972) and Paper Moon (1973), it seemed that the boy wonder could do no wrong. But he did with the “only film students love them” series of Daisy Miller (1974), At Long Last Love (1975) and Nickelodeon..."

The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra
An affectionate parody of 1950s sci-fi movies, The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra spoofs ’til it poops out.
Film Review  February 20, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...The film-within-the-film Mant! ("Half man! Half ant! All terror!") is a spot-on, tongue-in-cheek recreation in the same vein as The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, but far less tedious. Plus, the wraparound film features Corman alum Dick Miller and indie godhead John Sayles, a bargain at twice the price...."

Big River: Pleasantly Adrift
Arts Review  July 29, 1999
"...When in song, this musical proves itself full of life and energy. Roger Miller's lyrics and music are a perfect fit for this fitful story; choreographers Acia Gray and Dierdre Strand turn Miller's tunes into galloping fun, with the townsfolk dancing, chiding, and generally enjoying life on the river..."

The Mule
Clint Eastwood enters the drug war in an unexpected role
Film Review  December 21, 2018, by Josh Kupecki
"...How’d that happen? Well, as the film (based on a New York Times story) tells it, he basically fell into it. The need for income eventually outweighs the risks, but isn’t that how it often goes? The early scenes of Earl drumming his fingers on the steering wheel, listening to Roger Miller and Willie Nelson on the radio while he's amiably trafficking in drug distribution, afford some comfort..."

Page Two: The U.S. Swings Like a Pendulum Do
The good news is, the Constitution is specifically designed to work amidst controversy and hatred
Columns  February 16, 2017, by Louis Black
"...To quote Roger Miller, who once sang of nations swinging "like a pendulum do":..."

Love Is All Around
Tracking Sonny Curtis and his tall, West Texas tales
Music Story  October 15, 2004, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Ryman Auditorium, Fort Nashborough, where settlers crossed the frozen Cumberland River, and a statue of World War I sharpshooter Sgt. York illustrate Curtis' anecdotes about Marty Robbins, Chet Atkins, and the time his friend Roger Miller was on Hollywood Squares...."

Stitching Up a Storm
Textile art is alive and well in the Camp Fig exhibition "Pins & Needles"
Arts Story  August 6, 2004, by Rachel Koper
"...Anyone I find a little tragic. Roger Miller was a goofball, but there's something a little sad in all of his songs...."

The Pilgrim Returns
Q&A with Kris Kristofferson
Music Story  October 15, 1999, by Andy Langer
"...My relatives and my peers from college regarded it as hick music. It didn't have the respect that it came to have thanks to Johnny Cash and Willie and the relationship that John had with Bob Dylan, plus the stuff that Roger Miller did..."

Mission of Burma
Completing the 21st century Matador trinity
Music Story  November 6, 2009, by Audra Schroeder
"...Mission of Burma's career arc is hard to trace. The Boston-based core trio – guitarist Roger Miller, bassist Clint Conley, and drummer Peter Prescott – put out one proper album, 1982's revered post-punk mold-breaker Vs., before disbanding in 1983 due to Miller's increasing tinnitus...."

That Kind of Lonely (Texas Round-Up)
Music Review  April 13, 2001, by Jim Caligiuri
"...Wallace has been plugging away for the past year or so, honing his craft by playing a steady stream of local gigs, and the work he's done is readily apparent throughout this collection of hardcore honky-tonk. As he did on his debut, 1999's Hillbilly Heights, Wallace has written some classic-sounding heartbreak songs like the title track to That Kind of Lonely, "Square One," and "From the Time I Get Up." Wallace also tackles tunes from the songbooks of Roger Miller and Johnny Horton, and it all adds up to one of the best-sounding sets of traditional country released out of Austin in a very long time..."

Mission of Burma
Music Review  May 2, 2008, by Audra Schroeder
"...goes down this summer at the Pitchfork Music Festival. The Boston quartet – guitarist Roger Miller, bassist Clint Conley, drummer Peter Prescott, and sound manipulator Martin Swope – defined innovation, and the fact that they created a sound imitated to this day in two albums speaks volumes..."

Girlie Action
Girlie Action
Music Review  September 15, 2006, by Margaret Moser
"...Dashew's new digs in Los Angeles have given her music a sharper, sometimes poignant ("Empty") but no less playful depth ("Brad Pitt," "Hash It Out," recently heard on My Name Is Earl). Newcomer Jessie Lee Miller's pinup-girl good looks suit the Western swing sound of her CD Now You're Gonna Be Loved, but it's her sultry alto that gives it the honky-tonk kick..."

Rocks Off
SXSW 04 encore: Saturday showcases and more
Music Story  March 26, 2004, by Michael Chamy
"...Mission of BurmaLa Zona Rosa, Thursday, March 18 There was a dividing line, about 40 feet from the stage, between the folks that had waited years to see these Boston art-rockers and those who looked like they were at a freak show. Guitarist Roger Miller was the mad professor, with his brown blazer, strawlike hair, and the rifle-range earmuffs he dons to insulate his ears from the tinnitus that caused the band's initial breakup in 1983..."

Peace Offering
Music Story  November 10, 2006, by Austin Powell and Audra Schroeder
"..."Buick Electra" is a sludgy opening ode to an ever-faithful car; then there's a song called "Liquorcoat." The four Helicopters creep over Marshall-stacked guitars and Apache-blade bass while singer Tim Shea narrates impending doom and helplessness. Think fellow Bostonians Mission of Burma – that's MOB guitarist Roger Miller on "Liquorcoat" – feathered and shellacked on the pounding "All the Sense in the World," poppy Dinosaur Jr..."
