HECKLEVISION: STAR TREK V This movie is a real piece of shit.

The Burning
The 1981 horror film, and the final installment in the Hollywood's Summer Camp slasher series. Hollywood Theatre.

The Canyons
Last January, The Canyons was the subject of an infamous New York Times Magazine article titled "Here Is What Happens When You Cast Lindsay Lohan in Your Movie." The piece suggested that the misery of the film's production was the result of having put a mentally unstable 20-something tabloid heroine in the lead—but while LiLo may have complicated the making of the movie, she definitely isn't the worst part of the terrible, terrible result. ELINOR JONES Hollywood Theatre.

recommended Hecklevision: Star Trek V
What the Holiday Special is to Star Wars, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier—inexplicably directed by William Shatner—is to Star Trek. Tonight, the kids from Trek in the Park lead the Hecklevision fun, where audience members can text jokes about the Shat's sad little toupée and see them pop up onscreen. Hollywood Theatre.

Jobs
Ashton Kutcher manages to nail one side of the Apple co-founder: He's a gifted con artist who sells himself as a willful visionary, and his aggressive desire to rope his marks into outlandish schemes (say, turning a garage-based startup into a fully functioning computer manufacturer) never come across as mean-spirited. But Kutcher can't convince us that this Steve Jobs is especially smart. Instead, he deftly copies Jobs' mannerisms—his grandiose hand gestures, his pigeon-like walk, his tense stare—and hopes that the slavish mimicry will convince you to pay no attention to the fact that that special light in Jobs' eyes, the spark of genius, simply isn't there. PAUL CONSTANT Various Theaters.

Portland Film Festival
A new, non-profit, broadly programmed festival started by local filmmaker and businessman Josh Leake. Possible highlights include "the largest free outdoor film screenings in the history of Portland" in the Pearl's Fields Park (films include food doc Growing Cities and the dark comedy Mon Ami); a Chuck Palahniuk reading that includes a screening of Romance, a short based on his story; a slew of shorts programs; and events from screenwriting classes to tours of LAIKA. The festival boasts Cinema 21, Portland Parks & Recreation, and the City of Portland among its sponsors, but it's also aiming remarkably high for a first-year event, filling up screens with a combination of partnerships with theaters along with the more dubious "four-walling," in which theaters are rented out entirely by the festival. It'll be interesting to see how this goes down. The festival runs from Tues Aug 27 to Sun Sept 1; see portlandfilmfestival.com for more info and a schedule. ERIK HENRIKSEN Various Theaters.

Portland Underground Film Festival
A celebration of underground and underseen cinema, both foreign and domestic, including shorts and features. More info: cstpdx.com and hollywoodtheatre.org. Clinton Street Theater, Hollywood Theatre.

recommended Rock n Roll Mamas
A doc that follows three female musicians over six years of recording, touring, and motherhood. Kristin Hersh, the Dandy Warhols' Zia McCabe, and Portland hiphop artist Ms. Su'ad AbdurRafi are all at different points in their career when Portland filmmaker Jackie Weissman begins observing them. The film is ostensibly about motherhood, and about the demands placed on a touring musician. The point that comes through even more strongly, however, is just how much things can change in six years, as relationships and careers ebb and personal and professional objectives shift. It's nonjudgmental, revealing, and pretty fucking badass. Director in attendance. ALISON HALLETT Whitsell Auditorium.

Something Wild
Jonathan Demme's 1986 comedy with Melanie Griffith and Jeff Daniels. [Insert joke about it not being as funny as The Newsroom here.] Laurelhurst Theater.
