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.

We Were Here


Documentary

Phil Bacharach
It would have been understandable had “We Were Here” veered into the maudlin. The documentary, which recounts how San Francisco’s gay community united in the 1980s to combat the AIDS epidemic, has its share of gut-wrenching stories. But the film is admirably no-frills.

Inni

Beautiful, alien music gets a beautiful, alien concert film.


Documentary

Matt Carney
If you missed last night’s chance at Oklahoma City Museum of Art, but like music, watch “Inni.” If you like film, watch “Inni.” Even if you liked Sigur Rós’ other concert documentary, “Heima,” go see “Inni.” I personally guarantee that it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest

Hip-hop giants A Tribe Called Quest are chronicled in the documentary ‘Beats Rhymes & Life.’ You got to get it, got got to get it.


Documentary

Rod Lott
To paraphrase the tagline from “The Social Network,” you don’t get to millions of albums sold without making a few enemies. In the case of A Tribe Called Quest, the enemies number exactly two, which would be all good if they weren’t named Q-Tip and Phife Dawg — half of the pioneering hip-hop act’s lineup.

Once I Was a Champion

Like a real-life ‘The Wrestler.’


Documentary

Rod Lott
Mixed-martial-arts fighter Evan Tanner once told the camera that in his life, “the best is yet to come.” It didn't. Three years ago, at the age of 37, he was discovered dead in the San Diego desert. To this day, friends and family debate whether it was a suicide, and the documentary “Once I Was a Champion” takes a look at his brief life, extraordinary career and tortured soul.

Beautiful Darling

This Candy sours


Documentary

Rod Lott
Candy Darling would’ve loved “Beautiful Darling,” the documentary of her brief 29 years alive, because, as one of the persons interviewed reveals, the thing that mattered most to her in life was being considered gorgeous enough to grace the silver screen.
