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.

Reviewer's grade: A

 

Dat ol' devil Michael Moore is back with another quasi-documentary about what he sees as in ill in American society: our health-care system. Is it broken? He makes a good case for a "yes" answer, but as always with Moore, the movie is more propaganda than objective. But so what? You know what you're in for when you take your seat.

 

All the bad things you've heard about Moore may be true, but they're insignificant if he's on the right track and he can make you think about your HMO before that test comes back positive and your coverage becomes invalidated because you didn't mention on your application form that you had a yeast infection in 1978. Yep, that happened to someone interviewed in the movie.

 

The picture is not made up just of continuing tales of woe; it's also pretty funny, if much of the humor is ironic. See it with a health insurance salesman you love. PG-13
