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.

Drillbit Taylor

None March 27th, 2008

At first, he's just looking for a score to get him out of town, but as he gets to know his underage employers and, more importantly, their English teacher (Leslie Mann, "The 40-Year-Old-Virgin," "Knocked Up"), he starts taking his job seriously. But is it too late? "Drillbit Taylor" isn't the worst movie in the world, but it bears certain comparisons to "Superbad" (same co-writer, producer, friendship dynamic among the young main characters), which is a hard act to follow.


The characters aren't as super-likable, making it difficult to super-care what happens to them. Wilson comes across well as a homeless guy, but he doesn't have that twinkle in his eye and his performance seems half-hearted. Not bad, but the group chemistry doesn't quite gel, leaving things feeling a little undercooked. PG-13
