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.

Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk


None April 3rd, 2008

grandcanyon

Reviewer's grade: A-

 

Go rafting down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon in large format IMAX with anthropologist Wade Davis and conservationist Robert Kennedy, Jr. in this spectacular new movie by documentarian Greg MacGillivray ("Hurricane on the Bayou").

 

The movie, playing exclusively at the Science Museum Oklahoma's OmniDome theater, is narrated by Robert Redford. The film is a plea for sanity when it comes to preserving the river that carved the Grand Canyon over millions of years, or beginning on October 23, 4004 B.C., depending on whether or not you received you science education in Kansas.

 

The photography is stunning and the large images of shooting the rapids and swooping through bizarre rock formations will steal your breath. Pack your Dramamine and get ready to soar. NR
