Aporia Blu Ray Review (Well Go USA)
Aporia is a 2023 independent science fiction film written and directed by Jared Moshe (The Ballad of Lefty Brown and Dead Man’s Burden). It was produced by filmmaker J.J. Abrams (Lost, Star Trek franchise, Star Wars franchise, Westworld, Lovecraft Country, Overlord, Castle Rock, and the Mission Impossible franchise). It grossed $21,587 during it’s limited theatrical run at the box office. Since losing her husband Mal (played by: Edi Gathegi from For All Mankind, Caged, Twilight franchise, and The Blacklist) in a drunk-driving incident, Sophie (played by: Judy Greer from Ant-Man franchise, Halloween franchise, Jawbreaker, Jurassic World franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Cursed, Valley Girl, Carrie, Elizabethtown, and Arrested Development) has struggled to manage crippling grief, a full-time job, and the demands of parenting her devastated teenage daughter (played by: Faithe Herman from Shazam 1/2, Watchmen, and This is Us). When her husband’s best friend Jabir (played by: Payman Maadi from A Separation, Camp X-Ray, Pig, and Westworld), a former physicist reveals that he has been building a time-bending machine that could restore her former life, Sophie will be faced with an impossible choice—and unforeseeable consequences!!!! First off, I just want to say it’s great to see the talented character actress Judy Greer get a starring role here. She’s one of the best in the business and I feel like she’s always been underrated. She delivers a great performance in this sci-fi feature. She’s falling apart and she gets a chance to change her life forever. I love time travel films and this one is an interesting take on the sub-genre. Aporia has a solid supporting cast that includes Edi Gathegi, Payman Maadi, and Faithe Herman. It has a good script that has drama, grief, suspense, and twists in it. This independent production looks bigger than it’s actual budget. It’s definitely worth checking out especially if you are a fan of the amazing Judy Greer!!!! Let’s discuss this high definition presentation from Well Go USA! This 1080p (1.85:1) transfer looks fantastic on blu ray for home video. It has a few different audio options which includes English: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English: Dolby Digital 2.0 on disc.
