Escape from Tomorrow

With Escape from Tomorrow, one fears the story behind the movie would loom larger than the movie itself. Luckily, that is not the case. After all, it opens with a decapitation on Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster.

Sorcerer

William Friedkin spends a lot of time in his 2013 memoir discussing why Sorcerer didn't click with critics and audiences even though he believes it to be better than his previous film, The Exorcist. Now that Warner Home Video has reissued Sorcerer on Blu-ray, we can see what Friedkin's fuss is all about.

Broadchurch: The Complete First Season

Welcome to the coastal resort of Broadchurch, population … oh, who can keep track, what will all the corpses? Yes, Broadchurch is yet another British television procedural involving the search for a murderer in a quaint little town, just like the limited series The Fall and Top of the Lake.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Essentially part five in the ridiculously profitable horror franchise, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones continues the found-footage conceit of the other films. The difference is instead of the scares taking place in rich white suburbia, they do so in a junky apartment complex on a largely Latino side of Oxnard, Calif.

The Invisible


None May 3rd, 2007

invisible

Reviewers' grade: D

"The Invisible" presents a gang of unappealing characters in an unbelievable situation. While the same might be said of Martin Scorsese's "The Departed," don't confuse the two. David S. Goyer's film follows the "Ghost"-ly antics of a teenager as he tries desperately to save his own life by getting those responsible for his brutal beating to lead rescuers to his slowly dying body.

 

The only actor of note in the film is Marcia Gay Harden, who delivers a slowly dying performance. Box Office Mojo reported that the box office for the April 27 weekend "” this film's first time at bat "” took in a total of $78 million, the lowest since September and 23 percent below last year at the same time.

 

The B.O. stinks, perhaps, because the films do. As we wait for Spidey the Third to reverse the trend this weekend, here's what to expect should you choose to ignore my warning and see "The Invisible": not much. PG-13
