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.

The Bourne Ultimatum


None August 9th, 2007

bourneultimatum

Reviewer's grade: A

 

Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) is starting to get the picture: He is a CIA-controlled, government kill puppet who has given up his life to serve his country.

 

What he doesn't know "” his real identity, past life, past loves and program particulars "” are starting to come into focus. Too bad that the CIA "” or at least Noah Vosen (David Strathairn) "” wants him dead to keep the program out of the public eye. Problem: Some info was leaked to a British reporter. Solution: Kill everyone. Vosen is opposed by good-girl CIA fox Pamela Landy (Joan Allen), who wants to bring Bourne home and put an end to the dark project.

 

Meanwhile, Bourne has to fight other assassins in cool European places like busy British train stations and crowded Moroccan alleys before coming back to the U.S. to face his past and the present plot to put his lights out. Guns, chases, gizmos, code words, secret hideouts, wiretaps, explosions. Don't you love summer movies? PG-13
