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.

Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights - Hollywood to the Heartland

None February 9th, 2008


Reviewer's grade: C


Did you hear the one about the Hollywood heavyweight who piled four unknown stand-up comedians into a bus and toured America, playing 30 cities in 30 days? You will once you've seen the documentary on the 2005 experiment. (Its Oklahoma City gig comprises all of 20 seconds in the finished film.)


Obvious right from the start is that none of the quartet proves to be that successful of a yuk-wringer, although as the road takes its toll, they get a little better. So does the movie when it finally decides to give us some background on these boys. Vince Vaughn is an adept host, but the structure is so freewheeling, it's over before a rising star can emerge.


One of the funniest bits is a clip featuring an unrecognizable Vaughn in a 1980 "CBS Schoolbreak Special" about steroid abuse. Ah, those were the days. R
