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.

27 Dresses

None January 24th, 2008



Reviewer's grade: B


A star is born as Katherine Heigl, who had a successful co-starring turn in 2007's "Knocked Up," demonstrates that not only can she carry a picture, but can do so with one hand. She plays Jane, a woman who thinks she's happiest when she's serving as a bridesmaid "” which she's done 27 times.


She's in love with her boss (Edward Burns, "One Missed Call") and then, crashing into her life, comes a newspaper writer who covers the wedding beat (Oklahoma native James Marsden, "Enchanted"). She dislikes him so much, you just know they'll fall in love, especially when Jane's younger, gorgeous sister (Malin Akerman, "The Heartbreak Kid") comes to town and starts making goo-goo eyes at Burns.


It's all about as fresh as a mold sandwich, but the script cribs just enough of the right moments from rom-coms past to be amusing, and Heigl is so good, she becomes a movie star right before your eyes. The movie alone is a C-, but Heigl is A-list all the way. PG-13
