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.

STRONG>B

Will Ferrell and Jon Heder played two disgraced figure skaters who have been banned from the sport for life. When they realize that they are banned as singles skaters only, the pair makes a joint comeback as the world's first all-male doubles team. And that's the part of the movie that actually makes a little sense. Most of the gags are of the straight-guys-doing-stuff-that-makes-them-look-gay variety, but damned if most of it isn't funny. The picture is no classic, even by Ferrell's standards, but the guy has more nerve than just about any other comic around and that alone makes him a joy to behold. The film co-stars Will Arnett ("Arrested Development") and Amy Poehler ("Saturday Night Live") as brother-and-sister skaters who have a sibling relationship straight out of a Jacobean revenge tragedy. Rated PG-13
