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.

’Bourne’s supremacy

The metal man hits the big screen, and we don’t mean Tony Stark.

By Rod Lott August 18th, 2011

I don’t know that our fine city’s Rev. Steve would agree, but “God Bless Ozzy Osbourne.” 

That’s the title of a new documentary about hard-rock legend Ozzy Osbourne, formerly lead singer vocalist of Black Sabbath, more recently an MTV laughingstock. For three years, Ozzy was followed by directors Mike Fleiss and Mike Piscitelli to capture his life story. The only thing more remarkable that his career has lasted so many decades is that he’s still alive. Hopefully, the doc will detail all of that.

Narrated by Ozzy’s son, Jack, who also co-produced the film, “God Bless” also features interviews with Paul McCartney, Tommy Lee, Sharon Osbourne and more.

Anyway, Oklahoma City has exactly one chance to see this on the big screen: 7:30 p.m. Monday at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24. For more information and tickets, visit

If you go, BYOB (that last letter stands for “bat,” of course). —Rod Lott
