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.

No Holds Barred

RLJ Entertainment's new Blu-ray for No Holds Barred begins with what seems like dozens of trailers for movies starring pro wrestlers from the WWE talent pool. Each flick went direct to home video, but once upon a time — aka 1989 — one had to go to the multiplex to catch such a spectacle.

In Darkness


Drama

Phil Bacharach
It’s not as if there’s been a grievous shortage of movies detailing the horrors of the Holocaust. Even so, Poland’s In Darkness, which is scheduled to open Friday at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, adds something to the cinematic discussion, chiefly in the form of its unlikely hero.

Game Change

Not nearly as good as the book, but vote Moore for the Emmy.


Drama

Rod Lott
Nearly every scene of HBO's telefilm Game Change, I recall from John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's excellent nonfiction book of the same thing. But the movie directed by Jay Roach (of the Austin Powers and Meet the Parents franchises) only tells half — maybe even one-quarter — of the story, ignoring the 2008 presidential-campaign narratives of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards for the one it finds most compelling: that of Sarah Palin and John McCain, and not the other way around.
