We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Race Out and Rent



Did all the companies releasing TV-series seasons sets know this was going to be one of the crappiest weeks of the year for new movie releases? Or did all the decent movies flee from the glut of interesting TV-series seasons? ---

Whichever the case may be, you probably won't be inspired to race out and rent Hannah Montana: The Movie, or the remake of The Last House on the Left. Heck, big-screen options more than a generation old -- 1984's fantasy The Last Starfighter, and the old-school Disney animation-plus-actors Pete's Dragon -- are more worth your while. It's understandable if any spare DVD dollars in a consumer's pocket go to new releases of The Simpsons (Season 12), Dexter, Everybody Hates Chris or Eli Stone. Or maybe save up for next week, when there are a few movie releases actually worth racing out for.
