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.

Dragon Wars: D-War


None September 20th, 2007

It's nice to see a monster-movie director who has his priorities straight: A kooky, nonsensical plot; a cute girl and her hero; giant snakes; fire-breathing pterodactyls; and an evil army working like they're on commission to destroy Los Angeles. Director Hyung-rae Shim frames his monster madness with the thankfully marginal story of Ethan (Jason Behr, "The Grudge," "Skinwalkers") and Sarah (Amanda Brooks, "Flightplan"), two good-looking youngsters who happen to be reincarnated figures from Korean mythology.

 

After learning about their destinies from a Yoda-esque figure (Robert Forster, "Jackie Brown"), Ethan and Sarah must constantly dodge a giant, murderous snake while figuring out how to save mankind. In the tradition of monster masterpieces like "Godzilla," the main attractions here are giant creatures and the full-service destruction of a major city; no one really gives a crap what happens to the people involved "” a lesson missed by Michael Bay, director of this summer's "Transformers."

 

Stoopid, hilarious and kick-ass, "D-War" is like a trip to the fair: pointless, cheap fun that's worth (figuratively) puking a little.  PG-13
