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.

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.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army

None July 17th, 2008


Reviewer's grade: A

Ron Perlman, in the title role, Selma Blair as Hellboy's way-too-hot (literally) girl friend, and Jeffrey Tambor as a prickly bureaucrat, return and lead a supporting cast of elves, trolls, and assorted paranormal good and bad guys in the best comical/tragical/melodramatic fantasy-adventure of the summer.

Hellboy and his team of paranormal crimebusters have to stop an Earth spirit (Luke Goss) from leading an army of indestructible mechanical warriors on a crusade to rid the planet of parking lots, shopping malls, and the humans who love them.

Guillermo del Toro directs from a story concocted by him and "Hellboy" comic creator Mike Mignola. Del Toro ("Pan's Labyrinth") has more of his patented comically hideous monsters for us in the most imaginative summer romp to date. PG-13
