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

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.

The Nanny Diaries

None August 30th, 2007

1:place w:st="on">Upper East Side ice queen Mrs. X (Laura Linney) and her son, Grayer. Annie lies to her nurse mom, who only wants the best for her daughter, and tries to keep her best friend (singer Alicia Keys) in good graces, while she decides if she can stand breaking Grayer's heart to live her own life. Linney plays the bitch role perfectly, delivering a truly selfish and pretentious performance, matched only by her husband, played by Paul Giamatti). Mr. X can't stand his life, his wife or his son. He does like to travel, though, and he seems to like his secretary and his money.


Cute and fun, but sometimes predictable and over-the-top, "The Nanny Diaries" manages to make you laugh more than groan. Have your nanny take the kids to see it; both will have a good time. PG-13
