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.

Sydney White

None September 27th, 2007


Reviewer's grade: C


Sydney White (Amanda Bynes) is a college-bound girl looking forward to joining her deceased mother's former sorority. However, when she gets to college, she discovers that she's too "real" for the other sorority girls, who kick her out in the rain.


Sydney immediately moves into a ramshackle house called The Vortex with seven dorks and helps them in their never-ending struggle against the tyranny of the beautiful people.

Supposedly a modern retelling of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (seven dorks, get it?), "Sydney White" really owes a much greater debt to "Revenge of the Nerds," with many plot points and some entire scenes lifted from the 1984 geek-out (for example, everyone stands up at the end and admits they're a "dork").


Co-starring Matt Long as the ultra-dreamy Tyler Prince and a large cast of characters that you've probably seen somewhere on B-list network TV, "Sydney White" is cute and funny enough, but really will only appeal to prepubescent girls and their moms. PG-13
