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.

Over Her Dead Body


None February 7th, 2008

Reviewer's Grade: C-

 

Eva Longoria Parker of TV's "Desperate Housewives" stars as Kate, a type-A woman crushed by an ice angel on her wedding day, who returns from the afterlife to keep her husband-to-be from romancing the psychic (Lake Bell, TV's "Surface") who is trying to contact her. Seems that the man's sister Chloe (Lindsay Sloane, "Nancy Drew") wants the psychic to fake a message from beyond, telling Henry (Paul Rudd, "Knocked Up") to move on with his life.

 

Borrowing elements from "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir," "Blithe Spirit" and "Topper" among others, screenwriter/director Jeff Lowell's romantic comedy is smilingly amusing, but never guffawingly funny. The cast is pleasant, especially Rudd, who is a comic actor on the rise. Bell has some nice moments as well and easily steals every scene she shares with top-billed star Parker, who should have demanded more to do. PG-13
