Movie Reviews

Blast From The Future
Sarah C | Madison, Wisconsin USA | 10/06/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I loved this series when it originally aired, and expected to nostalgically laugh at my youthful pretentions whenever I had time to watch an episode. Instead, I got caught up in a show that's as fresh today as it was then, and watched the entire set in a marathon weekend.

Not only is the technology astoundingly prescient -- with a few exceptions, the characters are using things that were only imagined then but are part of our daily life now, in the way they predicted -- the social and political issues the characters do battle with have come to pass or are looming on our horizons. If "24" was written by Jon Stewart (of the Daily Show), it might turn out like this; rapid pace and interlocking plotlines, spiced with perceptive humor, delivered by intensely human and oddly believable characters.

I'm going to enjoy watching this series again and again, because (decades after it aired) it's given me too much to think about with just one viewing. And I have to wonder how much more of it will have come true by 2020..."
Shipped Quickly
The Vibesman | 09/30/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Product shipped quickly, arrived undamaged. As for the product itself, the transfers look great. I haven't watched the extras yet but the shows themselves look much better than anything recently distributed; one quibble with the box set itself, it doesn't seem to include the BBC tele-movie that the USA series was based on. It's true that the USA pilot is a retelling of pretty much the exact same story so the BBC movie is a bit redundant, but if you're putting out everything else associated with the show, it seems a shame not to include the actual basis for the show.

The show itself is very good, ahead of its time in terms of concepts; very entertaining watching."
Max is as Relevant as Ever
J. Lukenbill-Bowles | Chicago | 09/28/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Even though the technical aspects of Max Headroom appear outdated, (e.g. the satellite navigation) the subject matter is intrinsically indicative of the Twenty-First Century. Advertising and TV rating still rule The Box. This is less so now with social networking; online downloading, and DVR technology but the large corporations that "rule the world" still have a great deal of power in controlling what people see and hear. Max Headroom Series sometimes takes itself a little too seriously with a few dud episodes such as "Academy" and "Dream Thieves. The relationship between Theora and Edison is a little artificial as well but, hey, it was 1980s Television right? have not seen more than a few clips from the UK version so I have nothing to compare this show with. Max Headroom was truly one of a kind; I think it is still relevant today."
Worth the time
Edward J. Buttler | Columbus, OH. U.S.A. | 09/25/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like the grit of the movie Brazil and Blade Runner, you'll feel at home with this series. It is what TV could have been, but went just the way of all good
ideas, lost forever."
