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.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End


None May 26th, 2007

Reviewer's grade: A

Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Geoffrey Rush and more pirates than you can shake a cutlass at weigh anchor for box-office heaven in this final chapter in the "Pirates" trilogy - yeah, right.

 

Our gang of soft-core cutthroats sets sail to rescue Depp's Capt. Jack Sparrow from the Land of the Dead, gather the buccaneer captains from the Seven Seas - a sort of piratical board of directors (and you thought only Enron had one of those) - and defeat the evil Lord Beckett (Tom Hollander) and tentacled Davy Jones (Bill Nighy).

 

It's a terrific spectacle and director Gore Verbinski keeps it rolling along at a much brisker pace than part two, and with fewer pointless diversions. The supporting cast returns for color and Keith Richards, in his highly anticipated cameo, actually presents us with a performance that's good enough to make us want more. PG-13
