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.

2 Days in Paris


None December 6th, 2007

2daysinparis

Reviewer's grade: C

 

Jack (Adam Goldberg) and Marion (Julie Delpy) are a 30something couple who decide to stop off in Paris to stay with her parents for a couple of days on the way from Italy back home to NYC. During their 48 hours in the land of Edith Piaf, Jack is tortured, via his hypochondriac tendencies, by smelly buses, braised bunny rabbits, other tourists, mysterious black mold, Marion's ex-boyfriends and his inability to understand French.

 

Marion, on the other hand, is tortured by Jack's incessant bitching and moaning. It's up in the air which one has it worse. Basically a pet project written, directed, produced, scored, edited and possibly catered by Delpy, "2 Days in Paris" is somewhat predictable, but just edgy enough to be entertaining. If you can get past the constant bickering and the smirking, simpering French stereotypes (the Horny Artist, the Horny Loudmouth, the Horny Crotchety Old Man, among others), the spontaneous feel of the cinematography and the gritty feel of Paris hold a certain charm on their own.

 

Screening Thursday through Sunday at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. R
