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.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

The Incredible Hulk

None June 19th, 2008


Reviewer's grade: B

It's going to gall a lot of people, but it took a French director, Louis Leterrier ("Transporter 2") to make a good movie out of the Hulk comic books.

Edward Norton ("The Illusionist") stars as Bruce Banner, who becomes the angry Hulk when his emotions are aroused, and the CGI department stars as the Hulk. Liv Tyler (" The Strangers") is Banner's girlfriend and protector"”they share a nice King Kong moment on a mountain side in the rain. William Hurt ("Vantage Point") is Gen. Ross, Army villain, and Tim Roth is the assistant Army villain, soon to move into first place. Tim Blake Nelson ("The Astronaut Farmer") is along for semi-comic relief and a hint of things to come.

Adults will enjoy the goofiness and top notch effects, and kids will enjoy what they love in the comics"”a big green kid who's always getting into trouble for being energetic and clumsy and misunderstood. PG-13
