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.

None July 12th, 2007


Reviewer's grade: B-


Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) is an awkward, unpopular teenager. However, after buying an old Chevrolet Camaro that can turn into a robot several times larger than a car, Sam's fortunes experience a dramatic reversal as he is forced to save the world from a power-hungry robot named Megatron. In the process, Sam gets the girl of his dreams, learns the value of personal sacrifice, and becomes a conscientious citizen his parents can be proud of, blah blah blah.


What should have been solely a gleeful, pointless exercise in kick-ass CGI robot fights is sculpted by director MichaelBay into a messy phalanx of subplots that are meant to enhance the robotic melee with the spice of human sympathy, but generally just distract with the spice of human tedium. With a good-looking cast of humans and non-humans alike, "Transformers" is way too long at almost two-and-a-half hours, but is still a good enough time if you can ignore the director's attempt to make sense of it all. PG-13
