A pretty hilarious off-the-wall crime comedy

  • ‘Killer Joe’
  • Starring: Matthew McConaughey,
  • Emile Hirsch
  • Directed by: William Friedkin
  • Rated: NC-17

This indie film playing now at the River Oaks Theater in Houston is gaining more attention for the NC-17 rating it earned rather than the movie itself. Yes, there are a couple of scenes that are ultra violent, but honestly, I’ve seen worse on cable television.


How could you go wrong with Linkin Park? What about Incubus? The Cynthia Mitchell Woodlands Pavilion, north of Houston, hosted the 2012 Honda Civic Tour on Aug. 28, 2012, with headliners Linkin Park, who played nearly two-dozen songs. Brilliant move.

Due to traffic problems, we missed Incubus and openers MuteMath.
