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.

No Holds Barred

RLJ Entertainment's new Blu-ray for No Holds Barred begins with what seems like dozens of trailers for movies starring pro wrestlers from the WWE talent pool. Each flick went direct to home video, but once upon a time — aka 1989 — one had to go to the multiplex to catch such a spectacle.

Premonition

premonition

Reviewer grade: D+

 

Why do strange things happen to good people? I dunno. Maybe because they've lost their faith in anything bigger than themselves. Or they've lost their ability to find a good script. There you go "” "Premonition" in a nutshell. I just saved you nine bucks. Thank me by dropping some of it in the poor box next weekend. Sandra Bullock stars as a wife and mother who wakes up one morning to learn that her husband has been killed in a highway accident, and wakes up the next to find out that he hasn't. Repeat until your bladder tells you it's time to do something else.

 

This is one of those twisty-time pictures that could revel in its lack of sense but instead tries not only to explain itself to you, but uplift you at the same time. It will do neither. Bullock is better than this material. Hell, Tara Reid is better than this guff. The movie is not a thriller, not sci-fi, not a romance, not entertaining. It's a jigsaw puzzle with the most important pieces missing. You be missing, too. PG-13
