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.

World War Z

Only Brad Pitt can save humanity in an entertaining, if unexceptional take on the undead apocalypse.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Consider this: standstill traffic, sudden explosions, people fleeing, lots of screaming. It’s the doomsday scenario Chuck Norris and less-hirsute far-right extremists said would happen if we elected Barack Obama as president — either time; pick one — but it’s also the opening moments of World War Z.

Monsters University

The college-set Disney/Pixar prequel graduates without honors.


Youth

Phil Bacharach
If Monsters University is any indication of what children think college is like, maybe it’s no wonder that increasing numbers of young people are forgoing higher education. The follow-up to Disney/Pixar 2001’s Monsters, Inc. imagines university life as a suffocating place ruled by mean-spirited cliques and droning professors.

Much Ado About Nothing

Great Shakes!


Comedy

Aimee Williams
Testing the adaptability of a literary and theater masterpiece, Josh Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing obliterates all of the pomp and ceremony typically associated with a Shakespeare production, bringing it down to earth in Southern California.

The East

For an indie thriller with as much intelligence as intrigue, just head to ‘The East.’ No compass needed.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Across her three films as an actress/writer/producer (2011’s Another Earth, 2012’s Sound of My Voice and now The East), Brit Marling has explored the subjects of cults, symbols, duplicates, identity and family. Remarkably, despite these recurring themes and a tonal similarity, each experience seems anew.

Skull World

It’s not necessarily connected to the funny bone.


Documentary

Rod Lott
I’m of two minds about the documentary feature Skull World, now available on VOD: On one hand, its subject is not your ordinary, everyday guy who’s been doc’d to death. On the other, why encourage him?

This Is the End

If only that were true ...


Comedy

Louis Fowler
To me, few things are as annoying as being stuck in a conversation with a group of stoners who’ve spent most of the day tokin’ it up.

Before Midnight

Make time for the brilliant, moving conclusion to Richard Linklater’s trilogy of tales of Jesse and Celine.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
In Before Midnight, the latest of director Richard Linklater’s odes to romance — a high-minded odyssey begun with Before Sunrise in 1995 and continued with Before Sunset in 2004 — there’s a sly bit that reflects the personal baggage fans of this trilogy bring to the multiplex.

Love Is All You Need

When brokenhearted, middle-aged people assemble for a wedding in Italy, that’s amore.


Drama

Rod Lott
On paper — or computer screen — Love Is All You Need sounds like an overdose of saccharine. Even swallowing just a few plot keywords could trigger symptoms: “widower,” “wedding” and “breast cancer.”

‘Mohicans’ by the numbers

Before you see ‘Last,’ read this first!


Features

Rod Lott
At 9:15 p.m. Friday, 1992’s The Last of the Mohicans will screen for free on Myriad Botanical Gardens’ Great Lawn as part of the 2013 deadCENTER Film Festival. You may have known the hit adventure co-stars Sooner State native Wes Studi (Avatar) and was co-produced by Oklahoma’s own Hunt Lowry, this year’s recipient of deadCENTER’s Oklahoma Film ICON award. But did you know the digits below?

At Any Price

A gifted filmmaker takes a detour with a farmland melodrama.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Ramin Bahrani has directed three extraordinary, independently produced films about characters living on the margins on society. That trio — Man Push Cart (2005), Chop Shop (2007) and Goodbye Solo (2008) — rightly earned him scads of critical acclaim and excitement about his future projects.

Fast & Furious 6

Not so ‘Fast.’


Action

Rod Lott
Right down to the dramatic shot of the cast members walking in a single row toward the camera, the title sequence for Fast & Furious 6 feels every bit like that of a TV series. It’s only natural, given how episodic this entry is — all it lacks is the “Special Guest Star” credit. (But on that note, don’t leave as soon as it ends.)
