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.

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.

Feel the Noise

None October 11th, 2007


Reviewer's grade: C


If you know what the musical style called "reggaeton" is and like it, this picture is full of it. It's a blend of Caribbean, Latin and hip-hop rhythms, and it's pretty bouncy stuff that goes well with sinuous dance moves, with which the picture is also well-endowed.


The film's plot is ancient: Right after Sophocles scored a hit with "Oedipus Rex," he wrote a script about a kid who discovers his best self by becoming a songwriter, befriending another budding musician, defending his artistic vision, meeting a girl, losing the girl and getting the girl back again. I can hear that ancient Greek producer now: "Sophie, you'll kill 'em. It'll run forever."


A pleasant cast of mostly unknowns and TV veterans don't have much trouble selling this one to young people who like the music and haven't grown old seeing a million variations on the basic story. For everyone else, well, maybe not. PG-13
