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.

Good Luck Chuck

None September 27th, 2007


Reviewer's grade: F


"This movie is what we professional reviewers learn to identify in critics school as 'a piece of shit.'" So wrote Walter Satterthwaite recently about another film but, with apologies to Satterthwaite, it is so much more appropriate a description of this Dane Cook/Jessica Alba/Dan Fogler up-ended outhouse of a comedy.


Cook is a dentist "” and after seeing this movie, you'd never let him put his hands anywhere near your mouth "” who is cursed to be the guy women screw just before they find their own true loves. He's the penultimate stop on the FindYourMate Railroad, so he's drowning in women who are willing but uncaring.


When he falls for Alba, he fears to bed her because then she'll leave him for the next guy who comes long. It's half as funny and twice as smutty as it sounds, and that assessment is pretty damn generous. If you're looking for a movie that might be shown to the prisoners at Abu Ghraib to prove that they just thought America was decadent before, this is it. R
