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.

Reviewers' grade: A

The team that kidded zombie horror in "Shaun of the Dead" returns to take on the cop/action movie and, as they did last time, manage the tricky feat of making a picture that stands as an example of the very thing they're parodying.

 

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost return, this time as a pair of police partners in the model English village of Sandford. Pegg is a London copper exiled to the country for being so good he made the rest of Scotland Yard look bad. Now he and his new partner become suspicious when a series of accidents look too much like murders and no one in the village wants to investigate.

 

Many of the jokes fly by almost too fast, which is a shame because they're actually funny. Some are lost to English country accents and some are just so subtle you won't get them until the next day, like the one that just dawned on me. R
