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.

Drink up!

Harkins’ annual loyalty cup and shirt have arrived.

By Rod Lott December 6th, 2011

I have a tiny bladder, so I almost never indulge in a drink at the movies. Unlike people who go there to text and talk, I go there to watch, so I hate to leave even for a minute.

But those who prefer a carbonated beverage with their cinema should know that Harkins Theatres’ 2012 loyalty cup and T-shirts are now available. Buy a cup for $4.75 and through Dec. 31, 2012, you can get it refilled for only $1 on each trip to the concession stand.

Hungry? Then plunk down $25 for the T-shirt, which gets you a free medium popcorn each time you visit Harkins Bricktown Cinemas 16, 150 E. Reno.  

This year’s design features recognizable characters from blockbuster movies, including those that haven’t even come out yet, like “The Hunger Games.” —Rod Lott
