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.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

None May 22nd, 2008

e movie.

"Crystal Skull" starts with a frenzy as Indiana (Harrison Ford) finds himself in the clutches of a band of Russian villains, led by the lithe, sword-swinging Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett, "I'm Not There," "Notes on a Scandal"), a power-mad dominatrix type obsessed with the idea of supernatural war toys. Indy escapes the Russians for a while, but loses his tenured professorship. Before he can flee the country in a huff, Indy is approached by a leather-clad hothead greaser named Mutt Williams (Shia LaBeouf, "Transformers," "Disturbia"), who bears news that Indy's friend Professor Oxley (John Hurt,  "V for Vendetta," "Hellboy") and Mutt's mom have disappeared in Peru while searching for a crystal skull and its tie to the mythical city of gold, El Dorado.

Die-hard followers are likely to be a bit disappointed its hard-to-believe climax. Still, "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull" is a fun ride. PG-13
