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.

Witless Protection

None February 28th, 2008


Reviewer's grade: F

Comedian Larry the Cable Guy once again dons an array of sleeveless shirts and assembles the A-material that pays his bills. Unfortunately, his A-material usually has something to do with poop, stinky feet, processed food or spandex on a fat guy.


Larry plays Larry, a sheriff's deputy with ambition to further his law-enforcement career. When suspicious characters he believes to be kidnappers come through his town, Larry jumps into action and steals their hostage. As everyone but Larry can plainly see, the "kidnappers" are FBI agents transporting a witness to trial. Chasing interspersed with bodily functions, dum-dum dialogue ("Are you insane?" "No, I'm Larry"), and the occasional racist comment (calling a Muslim fellow "Pamper-head") follows.


It's best not to think too hard about how this wad of dog-flop came into existence or how much time and money were wasted in the process. It's too painful to think of the literally millions of things on which those resources would have been better spent. PG-13
