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.

Strings. Sharing. Shoes. Ssssh! The movie’s starting!

By Rod Lott January 31st, 2012

• Get your “Goat” when a slew of musical master talents — including Yo-Yo Ma, fiddler Stuart Duncan and vocalist Aoife O’Donovan — combine for “The Goat Rodeo Sessions Live,” a multigenre concert screening at 6:30 p.m. tonight at AMC Quail Springs 24, Cinemark Tinseltown and, in Norman, Hollywood Spotlight 14. For more information, visit

• Too lazy to get out for a movie? Then type this in on your Google machine: (Or just look below, if you’re that lazy.) Through today, that lets you watch mumblecore giant Joe Swanberg’s new film, “Marriage Material,” for the price of $0.00, courtesy of Factory 25.

It’s about a young couple who agree to babysit a pal’s baby pictured for a day; much talking ensues. Swanberg’s style is not for me, but far be it from me to deny you from determining whether you share such sentiment.

• Oklahoma City University Film Institute’s series sets its sights on Iran with “Children of Heaven,” about two poor siblings who share a pair of shoes. The acclaimed 1997 family drama shows for free at 2 p.m. Feb. 5 in the Kerr-McGee Auditorium of the Meinders School of Business, 2501 N. Blackwelder. For more information, call 208-5472. —Rod Lott
