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.

I Am Legend

None December 20th, 2007


Reviewer's grade: C-


Just in time for the holidays, here's a new movie "” it only seems old "” with Will Smith and his faithful dog doing battle with rabid, flesh-eating zombies, both animal and human. You won't look at a turkey carcass the same way ever again. A miracle cure for cancer has done the big oopsie and turned 90 percent of Earth's population into monsters.


Does that mean that 100 percent had cancer and only 10 percent were immune to the drug's side effects? If you're the kind of moviegoer who asks obvious questions like that, you'd best stay home.


This picture sidesteps so many simple questions, you'd think it was entered in the Iowa primary. Smith does good work as a man who is being driven slowly nutso by loneliness and constant tension, and he has a terrific moment as he begs a mannequin to say "hello" to him. His performance is the movie's best feature, but as you watch it, you'll wonder if he couldn't have saved if for a better script. PG-13
