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.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

Rather than retire, the Jackass franchise flirts with fiction — if not sexually harasses it — in the semi-scripted, wholly hilarious Bad Grandpa.


Comedy

Rod Lott

Riotous as they are, the Jackass movies have not been immune to the law of diminishing returns — in terms of laughs, not box office. That the fourth feature, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, is the funniest since the first, 2002's Jackass: The Movie, is something of an unexpected achievement.

Hogan’s Fable

An Oklahoma City filmmaker’s feature film debut is set to premiere at this weekend’s Austin Film Festival.


Features

Molly Evans
One cold night in early January 2011, an Oklahoma City-based filmmaker returned from a drink at the bar to housesit his parents’ old, empty abode. But the familiarity of the attic, staircase and the basement door quickly faded when a mass blackout affected the entire neighborhood. Vinnie Hogan has replayed this horrifying scenario since childhood, and he met this dark fate not only with the illumination of his cellphone but also with the idea for his first feature film.

Cultish comedy

"Weird Al" Yankovic’s Oklahoma-sized motion picture debut, UHF, celebrates 25 years this month.


Comedy

Louis Fowler

The summer of 1989 was one of the biggest blockbuster summers of all time, with hit movie after hit movie released, including Batman, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. In the middle of this cluttered schedule, a little low-budget comedy starring song-parodist “Weird Al” Yankovic titled UHF was quietly released and then quickly disappeared into the cinematic flotsam.

Paul Greengrass commandeers this true story into waters no other director would travel.

Ghost Team One

A spirited spoof.


Comedy

Rod Lott
With this Halloween season being the first without a new chapter in the Paranormal Activity series, perhaps a Paranormal Activity spoof is the next best thing. There's no shortage of them, but of the roughly half-dozen I've seen, Ghost Team One is the only one worth watching.

Rush

Ron Howard's latest is a crash course in filmmaking that reeks of burnt rubber.


Action

Louis Fowler
Rush isn’t about the much-loved Canadian power-prog trio. Sadly.

‘The good crazy’

Renewed attention for Project Nim has ensured that animal rights — and the documentaries that chronicle them — are having a reawakening.


Features

Nicole Hill
Bob Ingersoll gets emails every day. He reads each one. The senders often turn into friends. Those friends lead him to other areas of interest related to his work. But Ingersoll does not want this story to be about him.

Running Deer

Brent Ryan Green’s award-winning short captures Native American life positively on film.


Drama

Louis Fowler

Most people toil away at film school for years before they even touch a movie camera. Not Oklahoma City director Brent Ryan Green. He went about it the old-fashioned way: learning by doing.
