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.

Resident Evil: Extinction


None September 22nd, 2007

Revewier's grade: D+

 

Throughout director Russell Mulcahy's inexplicable three-decades-strong film career, there's only one entry on his filmography worth seeing "¦ and it's certainly not "Resident Evil: Extinction." (For the record, it's the one with the self-indulgent title of "Russell Mulchay's Tale of the Mummy.")

 

I loved Paul W.S. Anderson' s first "Resident Evil," liked Alexander Witt's "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" and hated this latest sequel. (Suddenly, the list of terrible movies based on video games isn't as lonely for "Super Mario Bros.")

 

Milla Jovovich is back to kick more zombie butt, but too bad Mulcahy and company don't give her much of a chance to do that. They're much too busy trying to determine how to stretch 30 minutes of material into 90, and disguise the fact that it looks more like an episode of a syndicated-TV series than an actual theatrical installment.
