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.

Fanboys, Friday Night Lights, My Bloody Valentine, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, True Blood

New DVD Releases Tuesday, May 19



A motley crew of Star Wars geeks (Christopher Marquette, Jay Baruchel, Dan Fogler and Kristen Bell) road-trip it to Skywalker Ranch in 1999 to sneak a peek at The Phantom Menace, which still sucks waaay more than this.

Friday Night Lights: Season 3
The high-school football series unwatched on two networks (NBC and DirecTV) kicks up the drama in Season 3, as the players prepare to graduate, and Coach Taylor begins receiving tomorrow’s newspaper today, and … what?


My Bloody Valentine 3-D
The remake of the 1981 slasher “classic,” with more blood, nudity and dimensions— if you wear the glasses, anyway. Starring Jensen Eckles (Supernatural) and Jaime King (Gary Unmarried), neither of whom get naked. Sorry.


Paul Blart: Mall Cop
In the worst movie since The Phantom Menace, mall cop Paul Blart (Kevin James) fights off extreme-sports thieves armed with just a Segway and a mustache. Pitch: “It’s like Die Hard … in a suck factory!” Gather the kids ’round!


True Blood: Season 1
Vampires go public in Alan Ball’s (Six Feet Under) HBO take on the southern gothic novels—it’s sexy time in the redneck Louisiana swamps, replete with racism, religion and drug metaphors galore. If Twilight weren’t a comedy … oh, it’s not?
