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.

Rambo
>Reviewer's grade: C-

 

Sylvester Stallone not only reprises his starring role as dialogue-challeged killing machine John Rambo, but directs, produces and co-writes this (hopefully) final foray into the Heart of Sly's Darkness. Rambo, it turns out, has been in Thailand wrangling cobras for a sort of snake circus since he saved Col. Trautman from Afghanistan in 1988. One day, some Christian missionaries, including a cutie named Sarah (Julie Benz, TV's "Dexter"), convince Rambo to take them upriver into Burma in his boat, which he tells them is a bad idea.

 

They don't listen, and they're captured by an evil warlord and made to live in bamboo cages. Rambo and a team of mercenaries set out to find them, mostly because he likes Sarah. If you don't know the gist of what happens next, you probably don't know or care anything about Rambo or his lifelong struggle to stop killing hundreds of people at a time.

 

Suffice it to say, the lunkheads who like this kind of thing will high-five each other a lot and repress their urges to kiss each time Rambo disembowels an Asian person. R
