Safety Not Guaranteed Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
6 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Safety Not Guaranteed is a splendid little movie that lights up the darkened theater with an abundance of charm, heart, and cinematic sincerity. It's built on a wonderful script and great acting, both of which contribute to a movie that makes quirky cool all over again and puts the big boys on notice that it's not what's on the outside but rather the inside that counts. This is one of the year's finest pictures and it's most certainly not to be overlooked.

  • Conclusion: Safety Not Guaranteed is light on bonus features and plagued by kind of unsightly digital video. Still, as one of the most charming and arresting films of the year thus far, it is well worth seeing.

  • Excerpt: Substituting charm, and sometimes quirk, for special effects, the no-budget time-travel caper Safety Not Guaranteed squeaks by on goodwill and guarded expectations. Aubrey Plaza plays a Seattle magazine intern whose interest is piqued by a classified ad looking for a time-travel partner. “This is not a joke,” it reads. “Bring your own weapons.” (The ad duplicates an Internet-famous real-life counterpart.

  • Summary: Safety IS somewhat guaranteed in Colin Trevorrow’s modestly enjoyable indie, which takes its plot from a real-life magazine ad that became an internet meme in the mid-2000s. The idea of someone looking for a partner to join them on a time travelling expedition is high concept heaven, loaded with the potential to be something wholly original and unpredictable - an arcanely twisted Charlie Kaufman-esque opus perhaps.

  • Excerpt: This quirky character, who believes without a doubt he can time travel, has a lasting effect on everyone he comes across. Whether they be amused, surprised, annoyed, or just plain curious, they are all drawn compellingly into his world. This magnetism will also translate to the audience, as his passion and eccentric behaviour are quite simply, endearing.

Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)

  • Excerpt: Safety Not Guaranteed is zo’n fijne kleine American indie waar ik gruwelijk van kan genieten (denk Another Earth meets Jeff, Who Lives at Home ). Door z’n bescheidenheid is het ook zo’n film die je wel wat dingen wilt vergeven, maar naast ‘n mogelijke plot-inconsistentie is er niet veel te vergeven in deze aparte romantische-sci-fi-komedie, want naast ‘n geweldige casting, sterke dialogen en ‘n zeer oprecht aanvoelende romance is het ook ‘n debuutfilm van zowel regisseur...
