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.

Juno


None December 27th, 2007

juno

Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page) is a rambunctious, says-what-she-wants high schooler who, after a brief easy-chair session with nerdy Paulie Bleeker ("Superbad"'s Michael Cera), finds a little plus sign on a dozen or so pregnancy tests. Her family is bothered, but accepting, and Paulie does whatever the more aggressive Juno tells him to do. She doesn't want them to be bothered, so she decides to abort. But after spotting an ad in the Penny Saver, Juno decides to let married couple Mark and Vanessa Loring (Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner) adopt her child.

 

The Lorings really want a baby, and have the nice house, the money and the life Juno knows is best for her bun in the oven. But things aren't as they seem, and vulnerable, confused Juno finds herself wanting to know her baby's future dad, while the married Mark wants to relive the free-spirited spark he once had that teenage Juno embodies.

 

Amazingly funny and meaningful, "Juno" has riotous dialogue, writing and acting and is a high point for film this year. PG-13
