Film Review: FEAR - Out Now on DVD & Digital

FEARFEAR, or Fear Everything and Run, which is now available to own on DVD and Digital, takes place in an apocalyptic landscape after a pathogen has been released and cities are zoned and sealed off. Ethan (Jason Tobias) and Josephine (Marci Miller), struggle to keep their family, including their daughter, Mia (Cece Kelly), who is on life support, and son, Josh (Danny Ruiz), alive while scavenging for supplies and keeping the dead at bay.

Things go from bad to worse when armed bandits raid their supplies. While defending their home, Joe is hurt, but so is the marauder’s matriarch, Desiree (Susan Moore). After a battle, there is a standoff, and an agreement is made that Ethan will go with Desiree’s brother, Lincoln (Justin Dray), to their camp to get medicine for Joe and Desiree, and everyone will go their separate ways. Of course, things don’t go according to plan, and no one can be trusted.

4K Blu-ray Review: Elysium - Out Now

ElysiumFrom writer and director Neill Blomkamp (District 9), the science fiction film Elysium comes to 4k Ultra HD. The film stars Matt Damon as Max, who grew up on the slums of an overpopulated Earth with his friend Frey (Alice Braga), dreaming of the luxurious lifestyle of those on Elysium. Secretary Delacourt (Jody Foster) will do anything in her power to keep those of Earth away from Elysium, but that doesn’t stop them from trying. After a life-threatening accident at work, Max is willing to do what it takes to make his way to Elysium to be cured. Agreeing to steal information from John Carlyle (William Fichtner), Max is outfitted with body mods and an exoskeleton by Spider (Wagner Moura) and sent on a deadly mission pitting him against the rogue Agent Kruger (Sharlto Copley). He gets more than he bargained for when he receives information that could bring equality to the two worlds.

I very much enjoyed Elysium. The story of the movie is relatable to the world today, featuring social commentary on issues such as social class division, health care, and more, yet is not patronizing. It’s also, just in general, a really fun sci-fi movie with a good script.

The film also looks fantastic, from the sets to the special effects. There is so much detail in everything, and the worlds of Elysium and future LA are really believable and make you feel like you are there. Blomkamp really knows his world building, and everything just fits together perfectly.

Blu-Ray Review: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars: The Rise of SkywalkerI'll tell you up-front that I've been a Star Wars fan ever since I was sixteen when the first movie came out. I was already a Trekkie and sci-fi fan, so I was just mesmerized by the original Star Wars and its colorful universe. You can't underestimate the effect that movie had on many of us. Good sci-fi films and TV shows were relatively rare back then, and special effects were pretty bad. When George Lucas made the first Star Wars movie, he not only created a completely original universe full of unusual aliens, planets, handsome heroes, and butt-kicking heroines, but he actually created new cameras and other techniques still used in film today. His vision was the most important factor driving the films. When Empire Strikes Back came out three years later, it was not only a great sequel but an even better movie.

Blu-ray Review: Emma is a Charming and Amusing Update on a Classic

Emma.Emma. is an adaptation of Jane Austen’s comedic nineteenth-century tale of love, matchmaking, and moving beyond the stigma of social classes.

The story takes place in Regency-era England and follows Emma Woodhouse, played by Anya Taylor-Joy, a rich, privileged, and pretentious girl who is entering adulthood. Revered by the town and wanting for nothing, Emma thinks herself quite the matchmaker when her governess, Miss Taylor (Gemma Whelan), marries the man she introduced to her, Mr. Weston (Rupert Graves). Taking a girl, Harriet (Mia Goth), with uncertain parentage under her wing and ignoring the advice of her brother-in-law Mr. Knightley (Johnny Flynn) who she has known for years, she decides to match her up with the local vicar, Mr. Elton (Josh O’Connor), and persuades her to refuse a marriage proposal from farmer Robert Martin (Connor Swindells). Mr. Elton, however, would never marry someone so below his social status and instead proposes to an oblivious Emma.

Emma may believe she doesn’t need a man for herself, but that doesn’t stop her from flirting with Frank Churchill (Callum Turner), Mr. Weston’s son, who seems to favor her, regardless of Mr. Knightley’s warnings.
