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, 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

Direct-to-DVD Sequel Giveaway



Direct-to-DVD sequels: They’re so eminently mock-able. But maybe they’re a bit more appealing when they’re … free? ---

Because there were so many unanswered questions from 2008’s Death Race and Beverly Hills Chihuahua, both films have now given unholy birth to follow-ups that didn’t want to waste time dallying in theaters. Now, they can be yours!

Send an email to scottr[at] indicating your preference for either Death Race 2 or Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2—no doubling up—with the subject line "Sequels" telling us in 150 words or less what you think would be the perfect plot set-up for these thoroughly uncalled-for second installments. The best suggestion for each will win a free copy of the DVD in question. Winning submissions will be chosen by your friendly neighborhood film critic, and posted in this space on Friday, Feb. 4; no direct family members of City Weekly employees need apply, blah blah disclaimer etc. Winners must be able to pick up prizes in person at City Weekly office, 248 S. Main St.

Now let your creative imaginations loose. Heaven knows you couldn't do any worse than the people who make direct-to-DVD sequels.
